Our form expert provides Queanbeyan tips for today’s horse racing at Queanbeyan Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 4:  No.5  HOWLING VICTORY  ($1.90 with Ladbrokes)

Locally-trained by Nick Olive, HOWLING VICTORY is now out of Maiden class and looks the one to beat here today. Last start, the Winning Rupert filly was fourth-up when she destroyed her maiden rivals at Nowra, putting 7.5 lengths on them as she crossed the line in the 1400m event. Running the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals, she came off the leader’s heels on the turn and exploded away to embarrass the 10-strong field with the ease in which she won that contest. A step up to the mile today should pose no problems for her here and a repeat of that last-start effort should see her saluting again.



Race 7:  No.2  BRING THE RABBLE  ($2.40 with bet365)

The Allan Kehoe-trained BRING THE RABBLE is unbeaten this time in and looks primed for the hat-trick today. Last start, the Sebring Sun gelding came off his maiden win (on this track) and ventured up to Coonabarabran where he destroyed a Class 1 field over the 900m sprint. He posted the fastest final 600m, 400m and 200m sectionals that day as he crossed the line more than three lengths ahead of the 11-strong field. Ideally drawn in gate two here, he maps to settle just behind the pace and this looks no harder than his last-start contest. With a trouble-free run here, his unbeaten status (this preparation) looks to remain intact today.



Race 6:  No.2  SPATS PAV BOWIE  ($3.30 Palmerbet)

Warwick Farm galloper SPATS PAV BOWIE sees the Queanbeyan track for the first time today and after three starts this time in, looks a worthy contender in this field. Last start, the Star Witness gelding finished mid-field in a Class 1 Hcp over 1350m at Wyong. He ran that trip out, 4.4 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort here by 10 lengths, and set a new personal best as well. Jess Taylor returns here for her fifth ride on the five-year-old, boasting three podium finishes with him already. From gate five, he maps to settle in the first half-dozen and rock-hard fit now, he will take beating today.
