Yeppoon Tips 13/09/2022

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



Race 1:  No.2  TRU BLU TANGO  ($1.55 with bet365)

He comes up short today but in the small field, TRU BLU TANGO will have to do a lot wrong here to miss out on the major prize. Last start, the Top Echelon gelding embarrassed his rivals at Rockhampton where he put more than five lengths on them in a BM70 Hcp over 1100m. Drawn the fence that day, Les Tilley settled him in front and in the run home, he simply left them all behind as he increased his lead all the way to the winning post. There is no apparent reason here why he can’t go back-to-back here and he should be used as an anchor leg in any multibets taken today.



Race 5:  No.7  SHALUNA  ($2.80 with Palmerbet)

Rockhampton trainer Clinton Taylor saddles-up a couple here with SHALUNA looking the best of the two as a winning chance. Last start, the Shalaa mare made it two wins form her past three starts when she comfortably took out a BM55 Hcp over 1300m at Mackay. Leading from barrier to box, she held them all at bay, scoring by more than a length on the line. Tahlia Felon has had great success with the four-year-old, boasting two wins and a runner-up finish from her only three rides on the mare. She remains in the saddle today and drawn the fence, she will most likely lead on settling again and prove hard to run down.



Race 6:  No.1  MAIN DE FOI  ($6.50 with Palmerbet)

She carries top weight here today but MAIN DE FOI still looks a serious contender in this contest. Last start, the Better Than Ready mare had Nathan Day aboard for his second ride on her when she easily accounted for a BM60 Hcp over the mile at Townsville. She ran the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race and covered the last 600m, 4.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up. Stepping up in distance here, she carries the same weight and has Day on board again. Ideally drawn in gate two, she gets the gun-run and the last crack at them in the run home. Still (currently) at each-way odds, she looks the value-bet of the day.
