Looking for Toowoomba Tips? Our form expert previews each Toowoomba race meeting and provides his best bets.
Our form analysts give you the expert previews for a profitable day of punting at Toowoomba Racecourse, also known as Clifford Park, home to Australia’s only regular twilight racing with thoroughbred action taking place every Saturday night as well as some feature meetings during the day.
In 2009, the Toowoomba Turf Club added an artificial surface to compliment the traditional grass track.
Locally-trained by Lindsay Hatch, MADDIARA boasts a strong home-track record and looks to add to that here. Last start, the Shamus Award mare brought up win number three at the track when she accounted for a BM70 field over 1300m. Leading all the way, she hit the line almost two lengths ahead of her rivals that day. That made it four podium finishes from her past five starts and has Kyle Wilson-Taylor backing up here for his third ride on the mare after steering her to wins on both previous occasions. This looks no harder and she must be included as a winning chance in this line up.
Race 3 - 6:10PM MOORE LEWIS & PARTNERS Class 3 Handicap (1210 METRES)
Another from the Lindsay Hatch stable is KIRRA LASS who has posted nine top-two finishes from her 12 starts to date and lines up here as the one to beat. Last start, the Nicconi filly proved too good in a BM62, here over the 870m sprint. She set herself a new personal best that day by running the trip, 6.1 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. She steps up to the 1200m for the first time here but carries less weight this time. From gate two, she gets the gun-run here and on her home track, will prove hard to beat again.
The Stephen Kirkwood-trained SEMAPHORE GIRL boasts a strong home-track record here and third-up, will take some beating. Last start, the Spirit Of Boom mare returned to the winner’s circle with a win in a BM0-58, here over 1210m. Drawn wide, she came from last on the turn to grab victory right on the post. She ran her last 600m, 4.6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best effort in this field. The five-year-old also ran the fastest overall sectionals in the process. Eight starts at the track have resulted in five podium finishes, which include two victories. Jackson Murphy sticks with her after that last-start win. The extra distance here will suit as she strips fitter from those two first-up runs. She looks the goods here.
