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 March 2.

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


WAVE BREAKER is worth thought at the each-way quote in the Sweet Embrace Stakes at Randwick. Bit of a discrepancy in the market between her and the race favourite, Manaal. Those two were placed behind Lady Of Camelot in the Widden Stakes (1100m) on February 3. Lady Of Camelot set an electrifying pace and went on to win by three lengths with only a small margin separating Manaal and Wave Breaker, with the former getting the upper hand late for the exacta. Wave Breaker did all of the initial chasing and should enjoy a softer run this time around. She is the value.

SOUTHPORT TYCOON shapes as a solid each-way contender in the Australian Guineas. I have been keen for the Ciaron Maher-trained galloper to get to Flemington and he is on the one-week back-up after finishing runner-up behind Snow Patrol over the 1400m at Caulfield last weekend. He worked in the early stages and couldn’t quite reel in the winner on a day that played into the hands of the leaders. His only previous run over the 1600m was inconclusive when luckless in the Caulfield Guineas. Form outside of that race has seen him score or finish within a neck of the winner. Jamie Kah rides and the son of Written Tycoon draws perfectly in barrier 4.

Market closer to the jump will be the best guide but keen to have something each-way on MURAMASA in the Blamey Stakes. The Busuttin/Young galloper was excellent at his last preparation, winning three from three before dropping out of it in the Sandown Classic (2400m). He was a first up winner at Flemington over the 1600m when fresh at a bit of a price before producing some very quick times over the 2000m and 2600m at Group 3 level. Field might string out a bit here and Daniel Moor just needs to find a spot early on from barrier 8.
