Kembla Grange Tips Wednesday September 16
Looking for Kembla Grange Tips and best bets? Our form analyst has previewed the meeting at Kembla Grange Racecourse and given his top picks for the day.
As well as midweek racing, Kembla Grange hosts quality meeting just about every second Saturday with the course boasting one of the best shaped racetracks in Australia which provides every horse its chance due to the long straight.
Resuming in brilliant fashion, the Wyong galloper DELEXO(best odds $1.70 with Ladbrokes) only has to repeat his first-up effort here to take home the chocolates again. Last start, the Exosphere gelding was fresh off an 18-week spell when he faced a Class 1 over the 1000m sprint at Muswellbrook. He had no favours that day, given 60kgs to carry and drawing gate 10 of 12 as well. Punters still sent him out a $4.60 favourite and the money was good. He sat outside the leader (three-wide to the 600m) then on straightening, said goodbye to his rivals and set sail for the judge, crossing the line four lengths ahead of them. He ran the trip, 2.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, setting a new personal best and rating 5 lengths better than this field. He also posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals for the race. All that on fresh legs. He draws wide again today (but in a smaller field) and has premiership winning jockey James McDonald aboard for the first time. The money came for him overnight ($1.95-$1.70) and he would have to do a lot wrong here to go home without the winner’s purse.
Race 3 - 2:05PM ATHOL (GEORGE) MULLEY CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1500 METRES)
Wyong trainer Kim Waugh saddles-up DIFFERENT STROKES here (best odds $3.60 with Bet365) and going off his first three race starts, he looks the one to beat in this line-up. Last start, the Hinchinbrook gelding showed further improvement by cracking his maiden win on his home track in a 1350m contest. James McDonald was at it again that day and after a slow start, he pushed the galloper forward to finally settle outside the leader. On straightening, McDonald asked him for a little more, and hands and heels, drove him to the line, to win with a hoof in the air. He set himself a new personal best that day, running the trip, 4.9 lengths slower than benchmark and while that only rates third-best here, he has plenty of improvement in him yet. Stepping up in distance here, he carries a little less weight and from gate one, will take beating today.
Race 4 - 2:40PM JIM AND ANN CAMERON BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (8 OR MORE STARTS) (1500 METRES)
Down in the weights here, the Brad Widdup-trained LOUDER(Best odds $4.40 with Palmerbet) ha been thereabouts in all five starts this preparation and deserves a change of luck today. Last start, the All Too Hard mare came across one better for the second time in her past three starts when she finished bridesmaid again in a BM64 over 1400m on a heavy Goulburn track. Ridden a treat by Reece Jones, she box-seated from barrier rise and chased the leader all the way home, but off a slow pace, couldn’t bridge the gap and had to settle for second prize (putting almost three lengths on the rest of the field). Her overall effort, running the trip 8.5 lengths slower than benchmark wasn’t a true reflection on her performance, when you consider the conditions and slow tempo of the race. She meets similar company today and drawn the fence again, she will almost certainly be box-seating the early pace. With the rail out eight metres (from the 1100m to the winning post), the backmarkers are going to need plenty of luck to reel in the front runners today. The scene looks set for this five-year-old to bring her first win this preparation.
