Here are our Bathurst Horse Racing Tips for today:


Third-up today, the Gary Portelli-trained SHE CAN TALK looks well placed here to go one better and break through for her maiden win. Last start, the three-year-old gave a good account of herself by beating all but one home in a Scone maiden over the 1400m trip. She ran her last 600m, 2.4 lengths slower than benchmark which rates the best in this field. Today, she has the services of Jess Taylor for the first time who is high-flying this season. Last season, Taylor recorded 34 wins all up and so far this season she has saluted on 39 occasions. With her early gate speed, she maps to settle on the leader’s heels and should put herself in with a winning chance in the run home.


Canberra visitor LONDON GAL is three starts into this preparation and now looks ready to win. Last start, the Sizzling filly drew wide and pushed forward to lead and set a sizzling pace. On straightening, she held a two-length lead but was run down over the final 100m, finishing second in the event. She set a new personal best that day, running out the 1400m, 4.5 lengths over benchmark, the best here by 3 lengths. Today, she draws the fence and maps to do no work as she will settle on pace. She has Lee Magorrian aboard foe the first time today who is no slouch in the saddle, knocking up 36 winners already this season. Fourth-up today, she should be rock-hard in fitness and from the favourable draw, looks the best of the day.


All eyes will be on the Brett Thompson-trained EMERIZ here as he shoots for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Zariz gelding gave his competition a galloping lesson as he put more than three lengths on them in a Mudgee Maiden over 1100m. No stats for the race are available, however its worth noting that he carried 59.5kgs that day and still managed an easy win. Rory Hutchings had his third ride on the three-year-old that day and remains aboard for this contest. Ideally drawn in gate three today, he maps to settle on pace and should be at his peak here after three starts. Only bad luck should play a part if he goes down here.
