Yeppoon Tips 27/09/2022

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



Race 5:  No.5  SHALUNA  ($2.80 with bet365)

The Clinton Taylor-trained SHALUNA is in career-best form of late and should take beating here today. Last start, the Shalaa mare came off a good win in BM55 company at Mackay when she stepped-up to challenge a Class 3 field, here over 1300m. She settled mid-field and on straightening, grabbed the front runners, only to be grabbed herself by one better on the day, leaving her with the silver medal for the event. She drops sharply in grade here and after Jake Molloy’s claim, fares well at the weights, carrying just 2kgs more than last start. Ideally drawn again (in gate three), she maps to settle better than mid-field (with cover) and in this easier contest, looks hard to hold out today.



Race 1:  No.5  MAIN DE FOI  ($3.20 with bet365)

Sunshine Coast galloper MAIN DE FOI is in great touch this time in and having her second start at the track today, looks a genuine winning chance here. Last start, the Better Than Ready mare came off an impressive win in BM60 company at Rockhampton when she stepped up to a BM65, here over 1800m. Carrying 59kgs, she finished strongly to take home third prize, beaten a neck, a neck on the line. She posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race that day. Facing similar opposition here, she draws to do no early work from gate one and after the claim, drops 6kgs from her last start. In the small field here, she looks well placed to bounce back today.



Race 6:  No.1  NEW YORK WORLD  ($3.70 with Unibet)

John Wigginton saddles-up NEW YORK WORLD here who has been knocking on the door of late for his first win this preparation. Last start, the Statue Of Liberty gelding had it all to do, carrying 59kgs and drawing the outside gate (11) in a BM0-55 Hcp, here over 1100m. He was slowly away, settling near last, eight lengths behind the pace. In the run home, Brad Pengelly kept him near the fence and while making ground steadily, he was tightened for room, and had nowhere to go over the final 100m. He did well to finish fourth that day, beaten just over a length on the line. Apprentice, Cody Collis is a board for his second ride on the six-year-old and after his claim, the galloper will carry 3kgs less than last start. With a little more luck in running, he can give this contest a real fright today.
