Here are our Tamworth Tips for today.


Third-up today, the locally-trained SHAMUSU SHO will be out to land his first home-track victory. Last start, the Shamus Award gelding was second-up as he took his place in the Class 3 Country Magic Hcp over 1450m at Muswellbrook. Showing improvement, he ran home strongly (from last) to finish fifth in the 14-strong field. He ran the trip, 9.9 lengths slower than benchmark but that was still good enough to rate second-best here, just a length slower than The Equinator’s last-start effort. He should find this a little easier and after the claim by Dylan Gibbons, he carries 6.5kgs (a stone on the old scale) les than last start. Already a winner when third-up, he just has to break the irony here of finishing unplaced in his three runs at his home track.


The Paul Perry-trained SALSA MAN returns from a six-week let-up here and at the weights he looks a genuine chance today. Last start, the I Am Invincible gelding came from last on the turn and overpowered them to grab victory and take home the Quirindi Cup over the mile. Fourth-up that day, he ran the fastest overall race sectionals on his way to a third career win. Clayton Gallagher was having his first ride on the five-year-old and remains aboard today. Carrying a half kilo less here, he draws wide but will drop back in his regular role as back-marker. This lead-up race looks ideal for him before the cup is run in 17 days time (23 April) and provided he can handle the drop in trip here, he will be a force in the run home today.


Inverell galloper FRIVOLOSOPHY comes off a last start (home-track) win here and looks in the mix in this line up today. Having just her second start for new trainer Danni Schreck, the Tavistock mare led them a merry dance for an all-the-way win in a Class 1 over 1200m. She does boast a personal best of finishing 6.5 lengths quicker than benchmark when running second in a Coffs Harbour Maiden when first-up last preparation, which is 4 lengths faster than any others here. Scott Sweedman rode her into second place two starts back at Goondiwindi and has the reins again today. The mare maps to cross from her wide gate and be in the first-four on settling and in this field, she looks great each-way value today.
