Here are our Taree Tips for today.


Kim Waugh saddles-up FENECH here (Best odds $2.40 with Bet365) and second-up today, he ticks all boxes and looks the best on the program. Last start, the Redoute’s Choice gelding came off a 10-month break and still proved too good for a Class 3 field, here over 1250m. He ploughed through a Heavy 10 that day, posting the fastest overall sectionals for the race on his way to a 1 length victory with Dylan Gibbons aboard. Ideally drawn in gate five today, he maps to settle in the first half dozen and has Gibbons sticking with him. He is a track and trip winner and the wetter the better for this four-year-old who’s three career wins have all come on rain affected tracks. He will have to do a lot wrong to miss out here.


The Kris Lees-trained ALASTOR (Best odds $3.00 with Bet365) is third-up today and despite the wide draw looks ready to win. Last start, the Spill The Beans gelding showed a ton of improvement when second-up as he finished third (of 14) in a BM58 on a Heavy 10 at Coffs Harbour. He got through the conditions 8.3 lengths above benchmark, still the second-best effort in this field. Andrew Gibbons has his second ride on the three-year-old today and has the experience behind him to know what is needed here from gate 13. Already a winner third-up and one from one at the track, given a clear run to the line, he still looks the one to beat today.


Coming off city-class racing here, CONTROLTHEWITNESS (Best odds $5.00 with Sportsbet) should find this contest a little easier and looks right in the mix today. Last start, we were with Star Witness gelding when tipping him to win at the Gold Coast in a Class 5 over 1800m. Alas, it appeared the Heavy 10 track and travelling wide without cover for most of the race got the better of him as he finished just behind the placegetters that day. He still managed to cover the journey, 2.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here by 4 lengths. Back to country level today, Andrew Gibbons is legged aboard for his fourth ride on the four-year-old and yet to share victory with him, he will be totally focused on changing that unwanted statistic.
