Daily Racing Tips – Thursday, May 7

Werribee: Race 3 (1:30pm)
No. 12 Billie De Lune

Billie De Lune has shown good improvement at each of her three career starts so far and is ready to win at Werribee today. The Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained filly needed the run when she finished down the order at The ‘Bool on debut, but has since finished a length and a half fourth at Cranbourne and second over 1400m at Ballarat. She’s drawn to receive a lovely run today and might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

Kembla Grange: Race 4 (2:10pm)
No. 4 Divine Eleven

Divine Eleven only just missed here at Kembla Grange a couple of weeks ago and is primed to go one better in this maiden race. The Matt Dunn-trained gelding finished off the pace when resuming at Doomben, but the drop back to provincial grade almost proved all the difference last time when only beaten late by the smart Kateru. This looks a great opportunity for him.

Werribee: Race 9 (4:30pm)
No. 5 Lombardo

Lombardo hasn’t been seen at the races since February and has had just the one career start to date, but he was an impressive winner on that occasion and can make a winning return at Werribee this afternoon. The I Am Invincible gelding showed ability at the trials prior to making his debut and put the writing on the wall with a dominant, four-length triumph at Bendigo. Anything close to that would be too good for these rivals.

Kembla Grange: Race 8 (4:35pm)
No. 3 Golwen

Golwen is another horse that has improved for a couple of starts this time in, and the last at Kembla Grange looks a lovely race for him. The Godolphin-trained gelding has been a reasonably consistent performer during his short racing career and ran home well to fill the minors here a couple of weeks ago. Fitter third-up and from a good draw, he can fight out the finish.
