Roughies Tips Back our roughies for the weekend

Looking for roughies tips to back at big prices on Saturday racing? We pick out the best three roughies to back each week.

There is plenty of quality action on offer with racing around Australia on Saturday May 11.

We have looked through fields and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way.


Open race and ITS’OURTIME is always a chance over the 1200m at Flemington. The Danny O’Brien has a good record down the straight and was solid at his most recent start when running on to fill the exacta behind Tuvalu in the Wangoom (1200m) at Warrnambool on a week when those up the front were favoured. The six-year-old should be ready to fire after three runs and draws the grandstand side.

TIGER SHARK shapes as a solid each-way contender in Race 7 at Doomben. The Sunshine Coast galloper comes in with a last start win under her belt after settling up front and proving to be too strong for Hip Hip Hurrah at Listed level. She was a winner when third up at Doomben at her last preparation and can serve it up to the likes of Parisal.

I am a big fan of Autumn Angel and the Australian Oaks (2400m) winner should be hard to beat in this race. One to consider at a massive price is the Chris Waller-trained KADAVER, who sneaks into the field after a few scratchings. He didn’t do much over shorter trips last month but produced a big spike on benchmark figures when stepping up to the 1800m at Eagle Farm in weaker company on May 8, finishing 3rd behind Hiyaam Proud. Worth noting that he was a winner when stepping up to the 2000m at Doomben earlier this year when looking to have a bit in reserve and is worth some shrapnel at the price.
