Daily Racing Tips – Saturday, December 8

each way
Rosehill: Race 7 (5pm AEDT)
No. 8 Jorda

Jorda reeled off some impressive closing sectionals to finish fourth at this track and distance last time and with even luck, can fight her way into the first three at Rosehill today. The Exceed And Excel mare has shown good ability throughout her entire racing career to date, but was outclassed at black type level in her two runs leading up to her most-recent start. Kerrin McEvoy can settle Jorda closer to the pace from barrier 6 this afternoon and she’ll be hard to hold out. She looks over the odds at $12 (at the time of publish).

Doomben: Race 7 (5:08pm AEDT)
No. 4 Prioritise

Prioritise has returned to racing in slick form this time and can fight out the finish of this afternoon’s Listed Brisbane Handicap (1600m). The Rothesay gelding strung together four impressive victories through August and September and resumed from a freshen-up for fourth in the Listed Recognition Stakes (1350m) a fortnight ago. He has recorded three wins from as many starts at the Doomben mile and can take a position close to the pace from the rails draw today.

Ascot: Race 7 (7:10pm AEDT)
No. 5 Mississippi Delta

Mississippi Delta has been in outstanding form this time and will be extremely difficult to beat in the seventh at Ascot this evening. The classy mare won the Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2100m) complete ease at Ascot two weeks ago and she is rock-hard fit for today’s assignment. Leading hoop William Pike can take her forward from the rails draw and she will give them something to chase.

Ascot: Race 8 (7:50pm AEDT)
No. 1 Trap For Fools

Former Perth galloper Trap For Fools ($7.50) has been outstanding this time and beat a strong field of local and international runners in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington most-recently. This evening’s Kingston Town Classic (1800m) is a drop in class and he’ll be hard to catch, if he doesn’t need to do too much work early from a wide barrier. He represents great value at each-way odds ($8 at publish).
