Daily Racing Tips – Thursday, December 20

Seymour: Race 5 (3:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Here Comes Lenni

Here Comes Lenni has been a strong and consistent performer this time and simply won’t be offered a better opportunity to return to the winner’s stall than he finds at Seymour this afternoon. The Tavistock gelding has finished off his three most-recent races extremely well to finish on the heels of the winner and was probably unlucky not to win at Mornington last time out. The rise is trip today is ideal and Fred Kersley can settle slightly closer from barrier 6.

Goulburn: Race 6 (4:50pm AEDT)
No. 10 Triple Hero

Triple Hero will enjoy a drop back from city company into the sixth at Goulburn today and looks beautifully placed. The eight-year-old was a dominant winner at this track and distance three starts back before running a close second at Gundegai. His most-recent effort for fourth at Canterbury would probably be enough to win a race of this calibre, and he’ll benefit from a return to his pet trip.

Pinjarra: Race 2 (4:57pm AEDT)
No. 2 Sentimental Friend

Sentimental Friend has improved through his two starts this time and looks ready to do something third-up at Pinjarra today. The son of Al Maher clearly needed the run when he finished off the pace at Ascot first-up and he was luckless at Bunbury last time, but he has the notable advantage of William Pike aboard this afternoon. He’s typically raced in black type company throughout his career and has a class edge over his rivals today.

Cairns: Race 6 (6:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Concluder

Concluder has returned to the races in typically strong form this time and will be hard to beat in the sixth at Cairns today. The Stratum gelding took up the running at Townsville last time out and hit the line well to win, and he’ll enjoy the drop in trip this afternoon. He should get a pretty soft lead from barrier 3 and will give them something to chase.
