Here are our Coffs Harbour racing tips for today.


Grafton galloper, NANAKOROBI YAOKI returns to country racing today and looks right in the mix in this contest. After three-straight top-two finishes at Ballina, the Shooting To Win mare headed to Randwick for her first crack at city class racing. She lined up in a Highway Class 2 over 1300m and after overracing in the middle stages ran home fairly against the tougher competition, finishing mid-field, beaten four lengths on the line. The four-year-old never stopped trying, bringing up a personal best by running out the trip 1.7 lengths quicker than benchmark. She faces a big drop in grade here and is already a winner at the track over this distance. Drawn the fence today, she maps to be sitting just behind the pace and with a trouble-free run to the line, she looks a solid each-way chance.


The Kris Lees-trained CIAO UNO is three starts back from a five-month break and hasn’t put a foot wrong. The break had no effect on the Super One filly when first-up on fresh legs, she put more than five lengths on the field in a Port Macquarie Maiden over 1100m on a wet track that day. Next start, she was trapped wide, racing three-deep without cover in a Class 1 at the same track but still managed to beat all but one home, beaten just half a length on the line. Last start, the filly looked the winner in a Newcastle BM58 over 1200m but was grabbed late by a swooper. She ran her last 600m just 1.9 lengths over benchmark, second only to the winner and ran the second fastest overall race sectionals. Andrew Gibbons was aboard for her first two starts and today, it’s son, Dylan’s turn who after his claim sees the filly carry 2kgs less than last start. There is plenty of early speed drawn out wide here which could see the three-year-old box-seating today. Coming off a five-week freshen-up, she looks the goods in this line up.


Taree galloper, STANDING BEAR is another returning from a tilt at city class racing and back in country company, looks a genuine winning chance today. Two starts back, the Smart Missile gelding beat all but one home in a Class 2, here over 1000m on a rain affected track. He drew gate 11 (of 12) that day and burnt a lot of fuel trying to cross early. Then last start, trainer Tony Ball decided to have a throw at the stumps and took his four-year-old to Randwick where he also stepped in grade, taking on a Highway Class 3 over 1000m. Ironically, he drew gate 11 (of 12) again, and was trapped four-wide without cover to the turn. He finished mid-field, beaten only 2 lengths that day and for the third time in a row, ran his last 600m quicker than benchmark. With that experience behind him now, he faces a huge drop in grade as he returns to country racing and has Ben Looker aboard for the first time. The barrier Gods have been kind to him today, giving him gate 3 and he maps to be box-seating on settling. Should that happen, he will enjoy a gun run to the turn and with plenty of gas left in the tank, he is good enough to find the front and go on with it here.
