Here are our Rockhampton race tips for today.

 

Five podium finishes from six starts at the track show that DISCO MO is in this event up to his eye teeth. Last start, the Uncle Mo gelding sat outside the leader most of the way, then fought on strongly to finish third behind the smart Hey Pal (who has now won four-straight) in a Class 6, here over 1300m. He covered the trip 7.5 lengths slower than benchmark which is still 8 lengths better than his rivals here. Today, he has a new rider with Baylee Nothdurft taking the reins for the first time who will have options open to him in the small field. The five-year-old is the top-rated horse here and by far the most seasoned runner. He looks good value in this contest.

 

Having his second start for new trainer Jared Wehlow, HIGHMASTER comes north to see his new home track today and looks a very strong winning chance in this line up. Last start, the Poet’s Voice gelding wasn’t disgraced when having his first start on a QLD track. He lined up in a city-strong BM68 run over the mile at Eagle Farm, where he finished sixth of the ten runners. Fractious at the barrier, he was vetted but passed fit to run. He ran that trip, 3.9 lengths slower than benchmark which rates second-best here, less than a length behind Provocative Man’s last start effort. Today, he sees the Callaghan Park track for the first time and has Ash Butler on board. 13 career starts have resulted in eight podium finishes, including two wins (both at Kembla Grange) and two minor placings in city company. He maps nicely from gate five and gives Butler options from there. Fitter for three runs this preparation, he is skinny with the bagmen but looks the one to beat today.

 

The Ricky Vale-trained I LOVE THIS HIPPY has drawn wide today but can still give this a real shake. Last start, the Ilovethiscity gelding was coming off a big win (on this track) when he lined up in a BM58 over 1100m. He box-seated most of the way then chased the leaders home and beat all but one to the line that day. He ran that trip, 3.5 lengths slower than benchmark (the best here) but covered his last 600m, 2 lengths quicker than standard, which is 4 lengths faster than his rivals today. He has drawn the outside gate here but his win two starts back was achieved after drawing a similar gate that day. Matty McGillivray is in the saddle for the first time today and together, they can overcome the wide draw and figure here.
