Warwick Preview & Best Bets – 21/05/2024


Warwick Tips for Tuesday, May 21

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



Race 6:  No.6  PICKO ROCKS 

The Lee Freedman-trained PICKO ROCKS is second-up today and looks well placed here to leave his mark on this contest. Last start, the well-bred Pierro gelding was fresh off a 19-week break when he beat all but one home in a BM65 over 1400m at Gatton. Slowly away, Jai Williams settled him second-last of the 11 runners until the turn. There, he railed like a greyhound and ran home strongly to be beaten just half a length on the line. Carrying 59kgs that day, he did well to finish as close as he did. The four-year-old will strip fitter today and draws to do no early work from gate four as Williams remains in the saddle for this assignment. In from double-figure odds overnight, the support is there for him to go one better today.




The Peter Robl-trained PRIVATE TENDER makes his Warwick debut today and fresh off a 20-week break, looks set to give this contest a real shake. Last start, the All Too Hard gelding had just his second race start when he finished just behind the placegetters in a Class 1 Hcp over 1200m at the Sunshine Coast. He was then spelled and has since trialled twice, finishing third in both runs. He drops in class today, taking on country gallopers with Jag Guthmann-Chester sticking with him for today’s assignment. Nicely drawn in gate three, he maps to settle near the speed and after winning on debut, he can get the job done here today.



Race 7:  No.5  SUPER DUCK  

Local galloper, SUPER DUCK is unbeaten this time in and looks a serious chance of bringing up the hat-trick today. Last start, the Supido gelding came off an impressive first-up win at Beaudesert in Class 2 company when he franked that effort by going back-to-back in a BM65, here over 1200m. He led all the way that day and posted a nippy 1:09.2 for the 1200m trip as well. He has drawn wide today but the burden of a wide gate is helped here with many pre-race scratchings that see him jump a lot closer to the fence. Anthony Allen is the new pilot and with a little luck in running, three-straight wins looks very possible here.
