Here are our latest Albury Race Tips
Race 1 - 1:05PM LITTON LEGAL CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
The Matt Dale-trained TWIG (best odds $3.40 with bet365) is the juvenile of the field but has shown enough in her two starts to date that she can figure strongly in this contest today. On debut, the Shooting To Win mare finished a close-up third (of 14) in a Maiden Plate over 1200m at Wagga. Then last start, she improved plenty on that performance by breaking through at the same course and distance, putting more than a length on them over the line. She ran her last 600m, 2.3 lengths slower than benchmark, the best in this field. She also posted the fastest final 600m for the race. Nick Heywood was aboard for both rides and sticks with her today. Drawn nicely in gate six, she maps to settle in the first half-dozen and fitter for those two runs looks the one to beat again.
Race 4 - 2:55PM SCHULZ FAMILY MAIDEN PLATE (1400 METRES)
Wagga-based galloper BLESSED AWARD (best odds $3.80 with Sportsbet) has been knocking on the door for a win this preparation and gets his chance here to shake the maiden monkey today. Last start, the Shamus Award gelding looked home for all money until the race favourite got clear and in the final stages took control to win by less than a length on the line. The four-year-old still ran his last 600m, 3.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, 8 lengths faster than this field. He steps up in trip today and from an ideal draw (gate 2) maps to settle just behind the pace. He’s finished runner-up twice in his past three starts, can today be his day ?
Race 5 - 3:35PM ALBURY BREWHOUSE MAIDEN PLATE (1400 METRES)
Queanbeyan galloper BORISLAV (best odds $7 with bet365) showed enough on debut to suggest he is in this contest up to his eye teeth. Stepping out for the first time, the Rip Van Winkle gelding held his ground, settling mid-field in a 1200m Maiden Plate on his home track. Sticking to the fence, Michael Heagney went to work early in the straight and the horse responded. He kept chasing the two leaders and finished within a length of them on the line to take home third prize on the day. He ran his last 600m, 2.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by more than 4 lengths. Drawn the fence today, Heagney makes the trip to Albury and sticks with the four-year-old and fitter for his debut effort, looks in the mix again at odds.
