Tamworth Tips 12/09/2022

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



Race 7:  No.12  MEMORIA  ($2.80 with bet365)

The Kris Lees-trained Memoria has had just the two race starts to date but has done enough to suggest she can handle the class rise here today. Last start, the three-year-old filly came off a maiden debut win here when she stepped-up to Class 1 company at Muswellbrook. That day, she ran home strongly, only to finish second (beaten half a length) over the 1000m sprint. She ran that out, 3 lengths slower than benchmark, the best in this line-up. Kacie Adams sticks with her today as she returns to where it all began and with a trouble-free run, she looks the one to beat.



Race 4:  No.3  PRIMAL SCREAM  ($4 with Palmerbet)

The Cameron Crockett-trained PRIMAL SCREAM is second-up today and with most boxes ticked, looks a genuine winning chance in this contest. Last start, the Sepoy gelding resumed off a 21-week break when he beat all but one home in the Tamworth Rush over 1200m. Carrying 61.5kgs on fresh legs, Brooke Stower had him leading to the turn, but his condition gave out, leaving him in second place over the line. Stower sticks with him today, boasting a solid record with seven previous rides resulting in four wins and that last-start runner-up finish. The six-year-old is already a two-time winner when second-up and a four-time winner over the 1000m trip. He will take some beating here.



Race 3:  No.8  INTERCEPT  ($6 with Unibet)

Muswellbrook galloper INTERCEPT has finished a bridesmaid at his past couple but looks well placed here to go one better today. Last start, the Dissident gelding came off an impressive runner-up finish (in Class 3 company) at Quirindi when he repeated that effort here in a Class 2 Hcp over the mile. He ran a new personal best that day, covering the journey, 4.7 lengths slower than benchmark, third-best here behind Kadashi (who has top weight to carry today). Grant Buckley sticks with the five-year-old here and from good draw in gate four, looks in the mix in this easier contest.
