Albury Tips – June 29
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 5 – 3:25PM JAYCO ALBURY WODONGA CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
The locally-trained STAR OF TENNESSEE (No.1) lines up here as just about the best of the day after impressing at her first two career starts. On debut at Wagga, the Starspangledbanner filly impressed on top of the ground, finishing second (beaten a whisker) in a 1000m Maiden. She was then spelled for 15 weeks and came back even stronger. She took her place in a 900m Maiden here on a Heavy 8 that day, and after taking the lead on straightening, left the rest to fight out the minors as she raced away to win by almost five lengths on the line. Conditions look the same here with another heavy track forecast. Blaike McDougall remains in the saddle and all he has to contend with is the wide draw. If the three-year-old can cross without too much trouble, she can take a sit or lead. She will have to run into a lot of bad luck to miss out here.
Race 7 – 4:40PM THE NEWMARKET HOTEL BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
Another locally-trained galloper who likes the wet is MACGYVER’S ME MATE (No.5) and he is shooting for a hat-trick today. This lightly-raced four-year-old has won his past two on this track and in doing so, showed a liking for the wet tracks on both occasions. Two starts back, he broke through with a Maiden win over 1400m carrying 59kgs. Then last start, he carried 1kg more to victory in a Class 1 over the same trip. He draws the fence today and has Blaike McDougall aboard for the first time. The gelding likes to lead and shouldn’t have too much trouble achieving that here from that draw. He is three starts into this preparation and should be at his peak today. He is clearly the one to beat.
