Here are our latest Albury Race Tips
Race 2 - 1:50PM CHAPMAN, GOULD & MAY BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (2000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 2 MAHSINGER $3.50 Bet Now!
The ever-consistent MAHSINGER is back for her second crack at the Albury track and is capable of taking home the chocolates today. Two starts back, the Al Maher mare proved too good for a BM58 field over 2000m at Wagga. Then last start, she stepped up in grade and from a wide gate (11 of 12) was never in the hunt, still managing to finish fifth in the event. That day she ran her last 600m, 1 length quicker than benchmark, an equal best effort in this field. She has drawn wide again here but is dropping back in class and after the claim, comes in nicely at the weights. She is up to this and looks a winning chance today.
Race 7 - 4:55PM PURJEN COURIERS CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1175 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 3 ROPPONGI $3.40 Bet Now!
Caulfield galloper ROPPONNGI is three starts into this preparation and has given notice at his past two starts that he is ready to strike. After finishing second in a Class 1 contest at Moe two starts back, the Kuroshio gelding then made his Albury debut last start in a BM58 over 1175m. Carrying 60kgs, he fought hard in the run home but found one better on the day, taking home the silver medal again in a tight finish. He ran the trip 7 lengths slower than benchmark but that was better than his competition here could manage. Today, he steps up to Class 2 company but drops 2kgs in the process. The National Jockey’s Premiership leader, Blaike McDougall retains the ride and should get the gun-run after drawing the fence here. The stable remove the blinkers for the first time and slap on the winkers instead. He should get all the favours here and looks the pick of the day.
