Daily Racing Tips – Thursday, October 29

Cranbourne: Race 6 (4pm AEDT)
No. 1 Chief Altony

Chief Altony hasn’t missed placing in five starts since debuting, and he is ready to win at Cranbourne again this afternoon.

The four-year-old son of Rebel Raider stamped himself as a runner to follow during his debut prep, breaking his maiden at Sale and ending his campaign second in a race at Pakenham most notably.

He has so-far finished second in BM64 and Class 1 company this time, and will take further improvement into this contest.

Cranbourne: Race 7 (4:30pm AEDT)
No. 7 Wind Force

Wind Force has been a consistent performer without a lot of luck recently, and he looms as a winning chance in the penultimate race at Cranbourne today, at a price ($8 at publish).

The Fastnet Rock gelding has been a good and competitive horse throughout his entire racing career, and he was caught wide in BM64 company at Kilmore last time out; hitting the line well to finish fourth.

He’s rock-hard fit, has better prospects today from barrier 1, and might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

Gosford: Race 5 (4:35pm AEDT)
No. 2 Gidgee Guy

Gidgee Guy has returned to the races in excellent form this time and looks tough to beat in Race 5 at Gosford this afternoon.

The five-year-old son of Zoffany clearly required the run when he finished at the tail of the field at Wyong when resuming, but he followed that effort up with an impressive run for third at Newcastle and a win at Tamworth most notably.

He is in peak condition for this contest and importantly, has raced well on a rain-affected track previously.

Cranbourne: Race 8 (5pm AEDT)
No. 10 Toffee Doll

Toffee Doll has stripped fitter for two starts this time, and she is ready to win at Cranbourne today.

The four-year-old daughter of Toorak Toff returned some decent efforts under the care of Craig Widdison last preparation, including a close-up second in the Albury Guineas, and she returned to the races this time for a credible third over 1200m at Echuca.

She finished on the placegetters’ heels in a better race at Pakenham last time out and with only improve for that effort, while she will also appreciate a drop in the weights.
