Winning Form brings us their best bets and tips from Taree, Australia on Tuesday.
Tuesday 14 September 2021 – Taree.
Best Bet: WINSIDE (Race 4)
Value Bet: FULL COVERAGE (Race 5)
Jackpot (race 4 – 7).
The day’s best bet, WINSIDE is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she has only had the three runs to date, winning the first two over today’s sprint distance and then missing out on her hat-trick when finishing fourth last time out over the same trip, 0.8L behind the winner. She was only collared very late that day after showing plenty of toe and the form of that race has stood up well with three runners out of that contest subsequently winning. She returns from a 19 week break, but has finished third in her only barrier trial to prove her fitness and gets a handy draw three.
OBLIVION has consistent formlines to his name and stayed on well to finishing second in his latest outing over five furlongs, 1.3L back from the winner. He has a wide gate ten, but he should be doing his best work late.
JAZZLES is a 5yr old mare who won over this distance three runs back and then finished fourth last time out over five furlongs, just a neck behind the winner. She came three wide into the home straight that day, but then made good late progress over the closing stages. From her kinder draw four, she should be involved in the finish.
FULL COVERAGE has won two of his last three runs, the latest over a mile by a neck. He kicked clear of the opposition at the 150M mark that day and then fought off all the late challengers over the closing stages. He will have to negotiate draw nine, but nevertheless he is taken to be the value bet on the day’s card.
UNDERBOSS on the other hand has cracked pole position and has finished second in his last two outings, the latest over this mile journey, 1.3L adrift of the victor. He battled all the way down to the wire that day and if showing the same determination here, he should be right up there when they hit the line.
SIAN has put in two solid last two efforts, the first when third over a mile and the latest finishing second over 1500M, just a half length behind the winner, this despite hitting the rail at the six furlong mark and losing ground as a result. He stayed on well over the latter stages and whilst having to overcome a wide gate eleven, on the plus side he will get 4kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice.
PAR AVION is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she has won two of her last three starts, the latest when finishing well to claim victory over seven furlongs by 2.8L. She has pulled pole position and should give the boys a good run for their money.
NOWYUNOMI followed up his penultimate run victory over seven furlongs with a second spot finish next time out when stepping up to a mile, a head back from the winner. He jumps from gate four and should prove to be a big runner in this line-up.
LORD AVATAR had his consistency rewarded when winning for the third time in his latest outing over seven furlongs by 2.3L, notwithstanding having to be held up between the 600M and 400M poles. He gets gate seven and should be included in all bets.
APACHE RED is seldom far off the action and won his maiden race by half a length last time out over seven furlongs, despite coming three wide into the home stretch and the form of that race has been franked with two horses out of the contest subsequently winning. He has his first run since a 19 week absence and has not had the benefit of a barrier trial, so his fitness will have to be taken on trust. The colt gets a wide draw eleven and faces stronger here, but he may well prove to be up to the task at hand.
Two 4yr old fillies are taken to chase him home, with the slight preference going to AUSTEJA, who is another with solid form to her credit, ending up in fifth place last time out when dropping down from six furlongs to the five furlong sprint, 3.7L behind the winner. She was returning from a 24 week absence that day and did win by 4.3L over today’s distance three runs back. She gets a kinder gate three and should keep the top choice honest.
NEVADA SMOKE has finished closer to the winner in each of her last three outings, culminating with a 2.3L win last time out over 1100M. She was returning from a 17 week rest that day and went from jump to wire to secure the victory. From a wideish gate nine, she is likely to use that early gate speed to move across without expending too much energy.
