Here are our Tuncurry tips for today:


The Kris Lees-trained MISTERZEE didn’t quite get there for us last start, but looks the goods here today. Two starts back, the Zoffany gelding was first-up off a 16-week break where he ploughed through the Heavy 9 conditions at Muswellbrook to finish second (beaten a long neck) in a BM58 over 1280m. The run was made to look even better when you consider he had 60kgs to carry and jumped from the outside gate (12) that day. Then last start, we were all over him at Newcastle (24 November). Second-up, a small field and he looked the goods. But alas, it wasn’t to be. It was déjà vu for the four-year-old, beaten a neck for the second time in succession. In that event however, he ran the fastest overall race sectionals which shows race fitness is on the up. Today, Aaron Bullock sticks with him and he is already a two-time winner over the 1400m trip. Drawn ideally in gate four, and also a winner when third-up, today looks set to be his day.


The Pat Farrell-trained OWHATA CRUMPET is in good touch this time in and looks a solid each-way chance here. Third-up last start, the Albrecht mare was having her eighth attempt at breaking her maiden status. On her home track at Muswellbrook and with the reputable Greg Ryan in the saddle, she took the lead turning for home and fought like a caged tiger to hang on for a gutsy win. She didn’t break any records on the day, running the 900m in 51.4secs but ran her final 600m just two lengths slower than benchmark which turned out to be enough on the day. She looks well placed here with most of the early speed drawn outside her as she jumps from gate five today. After the claim, she carries 2kgs less here and looks a better than average chance to go back-to-back.


Muswellbrook galloper VOL AU VENT has won two of her past three starts and looks right in the mix in this contest. Three starts back, the Delago Deluxe mare broke through for her maiden win at Gunnedah over 1400m. Then after finishing just behind the placegetters at Newcastle next start, She headed to Dubbo for a crack at a BM58 over the mile. She jumped well that day and sat just off the speed. With Grant Buckley aboard, the four-year-old took over inside the final 100m and hung on for a good win. Since resuming from a lengthy 23-week spell, her sectional times have improved with every start. Ideally drawn in gate three today, Buckley remains aboard and he should have the mare settled just behind the pace again. Only up half a kilo on her last run, she looks a solid each-way chance in this event.
