Here are our Port Macquarie Tips for today:


Three podium finishes from as many starts is a solid way to begin a career and the Kris Lees-trained GLOWING RED has done just that. Last start, the Artie Schiller filly was fresh off an 18-week break when she lined up in a Class 1 over 1100m at Hawkesbury. She ran the trip, 5.5 lengths slower than benchmark which is second-best to Sarah Elizabeth (who comes off a 40-week absence today). Arron Bullock has the reins for the Lees filly today who maps to settle mid-field with cover. Apart from some possible heat she may experience from Oakfield Prince (who is also first-up today), I’m sticking with the filly, who won second-up last time in.


Taree galloper SALAMANGKERA is second-up today where she has a glowing record and it looks to receive another star in this event. Last start, the Fighting Sun mare took on Class 3 company on a Heavy 10 over 1250m at her home track. Dylan Gibbons had her settled nicely behind the leading pair and she wasn’t disgraced as she ran home gamely for fourth prize. She ran the trip 6 lengths slower than benchmark (understandable considering the conditions), which is just 1 length slower than the best effort in this line up. She did, however, run her last 600m just over half a length quicker than the standard mark which is the best here. Her three second-up appearances show a win and two runner-up finishes which puts some gloss on her chances here. Currently at double figures, she certainly warrants an each-way ticket today.


Another Taree galloper stands out here with FAATINAAT having her fourth race start today. Two starts back, the Mulaazem filly was fresh off a lengthy six-month break when she stepped out onto this track and broke her maiden status with a solid win over 1106m. Then last start, she returned here and faced a Class 1 field of 14 and with Ashley Morgan still aboard, she did a mighty job to finish third in the big field. She ran her last 600m, 2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field and the only one to run under the standard mark in their last start. Today, she draws nicely in gate three and with Morgan still in the saddle, she looks the testing material today.
