Daily Racing Tips – Monday, January 24

each way
Nowra: Race 3 (2:20pm AEDT)
No. 9 Cosmic Caper

Cosmic Caper has only made two appearances at the races so far, but she looks a filly with decent ability and looks well placed to break her maiden at Nowra this afternoon. The daughter of Zoustar raced greenly and weakened late at Gosford on debut, but she clearly took plenty of benefit from the experience when she hit the line for fourth at Canberra last time out. Any improvement from that race would see her in the finish of this today at a great price ($13 at publish).

Taree: Race 3 (3:15pm AEDT)
No. 5 Charlie's Law

Charlie’s Law has recorded several good results this time and strikes a very winnable race at Taree this afternoon. The Myboycharlie gelding was an easy winner at Port Macquarie a few runs back before a couple of tough efforts. His most-recent for fourth at Scone was decent and he has been crying out for a step up in trip, which he gets today. With even luck, he’s up to winning a race of this calibre.

Nowra: Race 7 (4:50pm AEDT)
No. 8 Elenara

Elenara will carry winning form into the penultimate at Nowra today and looks well placed to continue her smart run. The daughter of Smart Missile worked home well from the tail of the field to finish fourth over 1000m at Hawkesbury on debut and resumed from a spell to comfortably break her maiden at Orange. This is a step up in class, but she still looms as the one to beat.

best bet
Taree: Race 7 (5:50pm AEDT)
No. 5 Exdream

Exdream was a smart winner at Coffs Harbour last time out and looks ready to peak in condition fourth-up at Taree today. The Dream Ahead gelding ran into a couple of decent horses at his first two career starts but still finished each off well for third, but he simply did not appear in doubt when he extended in the straight to score by more than two lengths at Coffs last time out.
