Warrnambool Tips Wednesday May 4

LIFE LESSONS should be very hard to beat in Race 2 of the day at Warrnambool. The Peter Moody-trained filly steps out for her second career start and was just grabbed late by Fuller at Sandown on debut with those two putting a seven length gap on the rest. She ran quick time that day and the 4th place getter has since come out and won its maiden at Cranbourne. Blaike McDougall rides and the pair draw barrier 5.

Market might be best guide in the lead up to the jump but SUGARTOWN can go close in Race 7. The mare from the Danny O’Brien camp resumes from a spell and won her first two starts at her last preparation before producing some nice runs in town. The daughter of Shamus Award might have a bit of scope as a slightly older horse now and doesn’t mind the Soft, while she will be ridden by Damien Oliver from barrier 2.

Warrnambool Tips Thursday May 5

CAESAR ($3.60 with Palmerbet) can go on with the job in Race 2. The promising galloper from the Mike Moroney stable has has three runs since coming over from New Zealand and showed improvement on April 18 at Sandown over the 1300m when scoring ahead of Arran Bay in a BenchMark 64. The son of Proisir set a career personal best by going 5.2 lengths faster than standard benchmark in that race, which are the best last start figures of any runner in this race. He led at Pakenham prior to that before being grabbed in the shadows. Two from three on Soft ground is a tick and he has the early speed to find a spot from barrier 8 with John Allen on board.


We stretch out over the 2000m in Race 5 and KING OF PHAROAHS ($2.50 with bet365) is another that can make it back to back wins. The locally trained galloper from the Lindsey Smith yard is unbeaten in two starts on wet tracks and cruised to a 3.5 length win on the Heavy ahead of Confrontational when resuming on April 20 at Bendigo. He should only improve up in trip and when stepping from the 1600m to the 2000m in the spring he improved a couple of lengths on benchmark figures when going from a big win in a Maiden at Coleraine to an unlucky runner-up performance at Ballarat behind Rock The Bowler. Stick with him.


Best bet comes up in Race 8 and it is TUVALU ($2.25 with NEDS) that should be hard to beat. Another from the Lindsey Smith team, the four-year-old resumes off a 10 week break and was no match for Gentleman Roy over the 1600m in February but was dominant here prior to that at the track and trip when scoring by more than three lengths from Zoltan. That came when first up. In his other five career runs he has won three and finished runner-up behind I’m Thunderstruck on two occasions. They came on wet tracks and he went 11.5 lengths faster than standard when fresh at his winter campaign last year before going more than seven lengths faster last time around when first up. Anything around those marks will be good enough here.
