Roughies Tips July 24

Roughies Tips Back our roughies for the weekend

Looking for roughies tips to back at big prices on Saturday? We pick out the best three roughies to back each week.

Racing is at Caulfield on Saturday July 24, while in Sydney, the action is at Rosehill.

We have looked through the fields at both venues and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way.

I don’t mind PROPELLE ($16 with ladbrokes) in Race 4 of the day at Caulfield. There are a couple of fancied runners that resume in La Mexicana and Miss Albania but Propelle does have the fitness advantage and there was nothing wrong with her last start effort that saw her run 7th behind Red Can Man in the Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) on July 10. The Ellerton & Zahra galloper produced the fastest last 200m in that race and drops in grade for this. She was a narrow runner-up behind Absolute Flirt prior to that at the track and trip. Fourth up last time she produced some very sick figures when winning at Morphettville ahead of Elderflower and she should be within striking distance of them in the small field on Saturday.

HICKOK ($13 with Sportsbet) shapes as an each-way player in Race 7 of the afternoon at Caulfield, which is for the three-year-olds over the 1200m. The Tony Noonan-trained galloper is on the back-up after finishing 3rd behind the potential star, I’m Thunderstruck, at Flemington last weekend over the 1400m. He was beaten four lengths in that race but should have finished closer as he was held up for a period of time at the top of the straight before producing the fastest last 200m behind the winner. The son of Shooting To Win drops back to the 1200m and was a winner at that distance at his start prior, while he went 11 lengths faster than standard benchmark figures last time, which is a better than what any runner in this race has produced in their careers.

ZAKAT ($10 with Sportsbet) can go close at the double figure odds in the final event of the day at Randwick. The Godolphin galloper resumes from a spell and normally goes well when fresh. When first up at his last preparation he just went down late behind I’m Telling Ya at Flemington over the 1200m, going 5.6 lengths faster than standard, while he tends to race well with the sting out of the ground. The son of Lonhro comes in with a recent trial win ahead of his stablemate, Viridine, and with Tommy Berry on board it will be no surprise to see him feature in the finish.
