Here are our Port Augusta Race Tips for today.

Should come as no surprise that our Best for the day is THE RAVEN (Best Odds Currently $2.20 with Bet365). We gave out similar reasons as to why he was Best for us here last start too. We can now add to the list The Raven’s strong win over a good field which included horses such as Domination. Once again, he’ll be partnered by Scarlet So who forms a strong team with the Kristi Evans yard. As always, we respect the stable, particularly when they venture to anywhere along the West Coast.

The Ben Price machine rolls on! He should have his tail up following his maiden metropolitan double, and he rides ZAMBRANO (Best Odds Currently $4.20 with Sportsbet). The horse is coming off a slightly different sort of prep, where he was sent out over 1550m first-up. Came back to 1400m in a good maiden at Balaklava following his debut run. Trapped deep, he was sent forward on a day dominated by those sweeping late up the middle. Came back even further in trip at his third run, which was here over 1200m. Scrubbed hard from the beginning, and never found a rhythm, before becoming held up for momentum on the turn. Finished okay in restricted room late, and should appreciate the 1396m now with the blinkers first time.

We’ll stick with our mate RUSTYDUSTYSUNSHINE (Best Odds Currently $4.20 with Palmerbet). We mentioned our surprise when she won second-up, and on the heavy track. She hadn’t previously been noted for either, so I guess we’ll put her last run down to a third-up syndrome? You never can know with mares sometimes when they put in a run like that after such a ripper effort. The draw has not been kind to her here, we’d prefer to be drawn in a bit more. Still, being somewhere around middle shouldn’t hurt, and Justin Potter rides this track rather well.
