Here are our latest Albury Race Tips


The locally-trained BALEDON has his third race start today and looks well placed to continue with the good work already done. After finishing second on debut on this track, the Foxwedge gelding headed across to Wagga for his second crack in Maiden company. He went one better that day, ridden a treat by Mathew Cahill. Sitting one out, one back, Cahill pulled him clear on straightening and the three-year-old simply finished too strong for them and got the job done. He ran his last 600m, 1.5 lengths slower than benchmark which is second best here behind the even time that topweight Brenlyn’s Trooper ran (who is first-up today off a 19-week spell). These two draw alongside each other today (in gate’s one and two) where I see a distinct advantage going to our tip with two starts already under his belt. Cahill sticks with him here and he even boasts a slight weight advantage over the ‘toppy’ as well. I believe he can take home the chocolates today.



She is first-up here but COUNTESS ROSTOVA still looks the testing material and should prove hard to beat today. Last start, the Declaration Of War mare was second-up off a 10-week spell when she faced a Maiden field over 1206m at Benalla. Full of beans that day, she lobbed in front and that was all she wrote. Crossing the line, she was just over five lengths ahead of the other nine runners. She ran that trip, 6.9 lengths slower than benchmark but that still rates first in this field. She also posted the fastest final 400m sectional for the race. The five-year-old crosses the border to start another preparation, however she hasn’t been gone long with just nine weeks passing since that big Benalla win. Drawn nicely in gate five, the talented Billy Owen is legged aboard today for his first ride on the mare. She maps to be on the speed over the shorter trip here, she should leave scorch marks on the grass.



We are making the courageous move here by tackling the biggest field of the meeting but still confident we can end the day on a winning note. Canberra galloper HEZREDHOT is a long way from home but looks a genuine chance of taking the biscuits back to our National Capital today. Last start, the Hidden Dragon gelding was coming off a Class 2 victory on his home track when he took on a BM65 over 1300m, also on the Canberra course. With Mathew Cahill aboard for his sixth ride on the four-year-old, he had him in front at the top of the straight but couldn’t hold off the challenges, still hanging on for third prize. He ran the entire trip, 2 lengths slower than benchmark that day which still rates the best here. Back in distance here, he jumps from gate one and given he leads on settling, he may take some catching today.
