Here are our latest Coonamble horse racing tips.


In good form of late, Dubbo galloper LEGAL ZOU (best odds $3.50 with Bet365) only has to overcome a wide draw here to be a real threat to this field. Last start, the Zoustar gelding finally found a way to shake the maiden monkey off his back scoring a resounding win over 1300m on his home track. He put 3.5 lengths on the 12-strong field on a Heavy 8 that day with Clayton Gallagher in the saddle. In that win, he posted the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals while carrying 58kgs. Today, Gallagher sticks with him as he carries less weight in the Class 1 event. With an unclear speed map, it will all come down to where he settles and how much pace is on up front. This is his first look at the Coonamble track but in his current form, he still lines up a genuine winning chance.


Scone visitor FOX SPIRIT (best odds $3.90 with Bet365) lines up here in a similar situation as Legal Zou (in Race 4) with just the wide gate as the biggest hurdle to jump over, in her run to victory today. Last start, the Foxwedge mare was fresh off a five-month break when she gave her BM66 rivals a galloping lesson, winning the 900m sprint by more than a length on the line. She posted the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals for the race after stalking the leaders to the turn. Madeline Owen was aboard that day and sticks with the mare here. After the claim, she carries just 53.5kgs, 1.5kgs under the limit. She is a winner when second-up and only has to contend with the outside today to be right in the thick of things in this contest.


The Peter Sinclair-trained BEACON (best odds $7 with Unibet) finished second at his only visit to this track and will be out to go one better today. Last start, the Lonhro gelding was resuming from a 16-week break when he finished mid-field in the Lightning Hcp (1000m) at Gunnedah. He settled in the same spot and was clearly in need of the run that day. He carries 3kgs less in this event as he draws the fence and maps to settle in the first half-dozen, just behind the pace. The extra distance looks ideal here being a three-time winner at the trip. He has a solid second-up record (without winning) with four podium finishes from five previous second-up runs. Jockey, Jacob Golding steered the six-year-old to victory at Goondiwindi six starts back and has the ride again today. Second-up, from a good gate, he looks good value in this line-up.
