Daily Racing Tips – Tuesday, May 29

Best Bets 
Geelong: Race 3 (2:00pm)
No. 9 Raincutter

Raincutter has not been seen at the races since February, but she is a filly with decent ability and is offered a great opportunity to break her maiden at Geelong this afternoon. The daughter of Helmet ran on well to finish third over 1425m at Werribee on debut, before a close up second behind Champagne Lucy at Yarra Valley most notably. She is drawn ideally in barrier 4 and looks to have the edge over most of her rivals here, particularly fresh.

Kembla Grange: Race 4 (2:35pm)
No. 3 Lightning Nic

Lightning Nic will return from a spell at Kembla Grange this afternoon, but she is a mare that typically flies fresh and she finds herself in a very winnable race here. The Nicconi mare undoubtedly produced her best runs last campaign at Kembla Grange and has trialled well in the lead-up to this race. Jason Collett can find a position just behind the early pace from barrier 5 before calling on the mare’s sharp turn of foot.

Kembla Grange: Race 5 (3:10pm)
No. 5 Deft

Deft has only made two competitive appearances at the races so far, but she has improved noticeably for the experience and she is ready to peak third-up this afternoon. Deft showed good ability at the trials through March and early April and was unlucky to be blocked for a run before finishing sixth on debut at Randwick. She’s since travelling to Scone for a credible third behind Metamorphic over 1300m and will enjoy the small step up in trip this afternoon.

Best Each-Way Bet 
Kembla Grange: Race 7 (4:20pm)
No. 3 Mount Panorama

Mount Panorama is a horse that has typically raced in tougher company than he finds at Kembla Grange this afternoon and he could prove over the odds at his current double-figure quote. The son of Sebring trialled well leading into his current preparation and worked home well at Scone to finish fourth over a mile first-up. He’s sure to have taken plenty of benefit from the run and can work his way into the money today.
