Daily Racing Tips – Wednesday, July 18

Warwick Farm: Race 2 (1:25pm)
No. 3 Osorno

Two-year-old Osorno will resume from a freshen-up at Warwick Farm today and looks ready to go after trialling well. The son of Exceed And Excel has shown decent ability throughout his short racing career and resumed for third in a Saturday race at Rosehill in autumn before stepping up in grade into black type company. He has form around a number of good horses and with appropriate luck from a wide draw, can finish over the top of his rivals today.

Warwick Farm: Race 3 (2pm)
No. 4 Wide Spread Panic

Wide Spread Panic is stepping back from Saturday grade into Race 3 at Warwick Farm today and will be extremely difficult to beat. The Fastnet Rock filly resumed for second behind Tryst at Gosford in late May before striding away from her rivals for a dominant win at Randwick a fortnight later. She’s finished fifth at her two most-recent starts but is right up to a race of this class and should be winning.

Warwick Farm: Race 7 (4:20pm)
No. 1 Curragh

Curragh has returned to the races in great condition this time and finds himself in a very winnable race at Warwick Farm this afternoon. The son of Tavistock tightened up with a couple of credible performances in metro Melbourne races when he resumed in May and has run on to place at his two most-recent starts, including an 1800m race at Randwick last time out. A mile looks to be his ideal and from the rails draw today, Josh Parr can find a position in behind the speed before calling on Curragh’s smart turn of foot.

Sandown: Race 8 (4:30pm)
No. 2 Fast 'N' Rolling

Fast ‘N’ Rolling faces a step up in class and weight this afternoon, but he has been racing extremely well this time in and can go on with the job at a great price. The Fastnet Rock gelding has been a strong and consistent performer throughout his entire career so far and has continued to improve with racing this time; storming home for a close second at Warrnambool two starts back before saluting at Ballarat as a $17 shot last time out. He is rock-hard fit and has a class edge over many of his rivals here. He is $14/$4.20 at the time of publish and looks over the odds.
