Here are our Northam race tips for today.

Race 4 at Northam is a Maiden over the 1400m and CRESCENT CITY (Best odds $1.60 with Bet365) looks to be the one for the Grant & Alana Williams/Willie Pike trainer/jockey combination. The three-year-old has had the three career starts and has placed 3rd in all of those. He resumed over the 1300m here on June 7 and was doing his best work late when running the fastest late splits behind Gold Merits. The son of Fiorente went four lengths slower than standard, which is alongside Sunday Gin and Future Queen as the best last start figures of any runner. But he should be open to improvement second up, while he is set to get the run of the race from barrier 2.

Race 6 is a Class 1 over the 1600m and GINGER BAKER (Best odds $4.40 with Sportsbet) can bounce back after narrowly going down at Pinjarra on June 6. On that occasion, the three-year-old was sent out a $2.90 chance and settled in a midfield spot. They went very slow up in front early on and he was forced out very wide on the turn before working home to finish just over half a length away. At his third run last time he improved six lengths on benchmark figures when going from a Pinjarra maiden win to a narrow runner-up in stronger company at Bunbury over the 1400m. He will get back from barrier 11 but the step up to the 1600m looks perfect and as long as they don’t crawl early on he can run over the top of them late in the piece.
