Daily Racing Tips – Monday, December 30

Coffs Harbour: Race 1 (1:35pm AEDT)
No. 3 Bullet Shot

Bullet Shot has improved with racing this time and strikes a very winnable one at Coffs Harbour this afternoon. The Redoute’s Choice gelding hit the line with intent when fourth at Grafton first-up before producing another fair effort in a far tougher race at Doomben. He again ran on well to finish second over a mile at Ballina last time out and probably won’t be offered a better opportunity to win than this.

each way
Coffs Harbour: Race 6 (4:40pm AEDT)
No. 4 Luga Lad

Luga Lad has been a model of consistency this time and looms as a live chance of winning at a nice price today ($7.50 at publish). The Purrealist gelding finished third in a couple of fair races over a mile at Quirindi and here at Coffs Harbour before again finishing third behind the smart Kiss The Bride at Kembla Grange last time out. A repeat of that effort in this company would find him hard to beat.

Coffs Harbour: Race 7 (5:15pm AEDT)
No. 5 Casino Delight

Casino Delight could hardly have been more impressive at Kempsey last time out and he’ll only improve third-up in the seventh at Coffs Harbour today. The son of Casino Prince ran on well to finish fourth when resuming but was far too good for a field of maidens last time out. This is harder, but he looks a horse on the rise and is up to winning again.

best bet
Coffs Harbour: Race 8 (5:50pm AEDT)
No. 2 Hellenism

Hellenism hasn’t been seen at the races since July, but she is also yet to run a bad race and looks the one to beat in the last at Coffs Harbour. The daughter of Helmet is yet to miss a place in three career starts; winning here two back and returned to the paddock after finishing third in a harder race at Grafton. She looks ready to go.
