Daily Racing Tips – Monday, October 14

each way
Echuca: Race 3 (2:30pm AEDT)
No. 11 Starsonic

Starsonic will take good improvement into his third campaign start at Echuca today and is ready to break his maiden. The Zoustar gelding clearly needed the run when he finished down the order at Bairnsdale first-up, but there was a lot to like about his run when third at Benalla last time out and he looks well placed to do something today at a price ($7 at publish).

Echuca: Race 4 (3pm AEDT)
No. 1 Skilled Assassin

Skilled Assassin has been airborne of late and is seeking a third-consecutive win at Echuca this afternoon and looks tough to beat. The four-year-old son of Skilled continued to improve with each start this time, but his two most recent efforts for wins have been huge and have suggested that he’s found peak condition. Harry Coffey in the saddle is a huge bonus and the horse can record another win.

Echuca: Race 6 (4pm AEDT)
No. 3 Zoustorm

Zoustorm is another horse that has improved for two starts this time and is ready to win at Echuca this afternoon. The four-year-old returned several pleasing efforts last time in and hit the line well when second-up at Geelong this time, while probably not completely enjoying the soft going. He gets back on a good track today and gets his opportunity.

Echuca: Race 7 (4:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Red Octane

Red Octane has returned to racing in competitive form this time and is ready to win. The Turffontein gelding worked home well to finish fifth at Benalla last time out, and there is little doubt that he will enjoy good improvement from that effort. He can take up the running today and will give them something to chase.
