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



Race 6:  No.3  BORROWED LUCK  ($3.40 with Bet Right)

The Muswellbrook-based BORROWED LUCK sees the Taree track for the first time today and rock-hard fit after four starts this preparation, looks a serious player in this contest. Last start, the Denman filly bounced back from two-straight unplaced efforts and fought on strongly to finish third (beaten half a length) in a BM58 Hcp over 1150m at Newcastle. She drew wide in gate nine and had 59.5kgs to carry with Aaron Bullock aboard. Drawn much better today in gate three, she carries less weight and has Bullock sticking with her for this assignment. Already a winner over the 1300m, she should appreciate the step-up in trip here and with a trouble-free run, she can make her track debut a winning one.



Race 2:  No.2  SIR TOM  ($3.40 with Picklebet)

The Paul Perry-trained SIR TOM has been a prolific placegetter in recent times and is way overdue for a change of luck which can happen today. Last start, the Olympic Glory gelding made it five-straight podium finishes when he took home his fifth runner-up cheque, beating all but one home, here in a 1262m Maiden Plate. He was no match for the winner that day but did finish more than two lengths ahead of the rest in the 10-strong event. This is his first crack at the 1400m and today he has Ash Morgan in the saddle for his first ride on the three-year-old. Ideally drawn in gate two, he can end the run of ‘Tom Melbourne’ finishes today.



Race 5:  No.3  PASSIONATE REBEL  ($3.50 with bet365)

Port Macquarie galloper PASSIONATE REBEL makes his Taree debut today and third-up here looks a genuine contender for the major prize. Last start, the Dissident gelding was having his second start for trainer Paul Shailer where he improved off his first-up effort and clobbered his Maiden rivals over 1500m on his home track. Ridden a treat by Aaron Bullock, he drew the outside gate (13) and crossed to lead on settling. Setting a good pace, he led them into the straight and it was all academic from there as he left the rest to fight over the minor money, putting three lengths on them over the line. Bullock sticks with him today as he steps up to the mile trip here and he should take catching again.
