Daily Racing Tips – Tuesday, December 1

Newcastle: Race 2 (12:50pm AEDT)
No. 5 Seduction Queen

Seduction Queen finished off nicely for second last start at Kembla Grange over the mile and looks more than capable of handling the step up to the 1800m mark again.

The Freedman-trained filly was no match over this trip two runs back on a heavy track at Randwick in a BM68, but she should find this much easier after drawing a handy gate under Christian Reith.

There’s no denying the lightly-raced three-year-old is well-deserving on another win and she seems to have found a suitable contest.

Newcastle: Race 5 (2:40pm AEDT)
No. 10 Skip To My

Skip To My gave a good sight on debut finding the line for third at Gosford over the 1100m after weakening slightly over the final stages.

The filly by Press Statement does look a slight query stepping out over further, but the form out of her debut run does read well for this contest considering the runner-up has gone on to win since.

She gets in nice and light at the weights and the wide gate might just see her go one better.

Newcastle: Race 6 (3:15pm AEDT)
No. 2 The Wayfarer

The Wayfarer turned in an eye-catching debut for third over the 1000m at Scone a fortnight ago and he seems to have found a very winnable contest second-up to breakthrough for his maiden.

Rodney Northam’s three-year-old went forward last time out, but he should be able to settle closer to midfield here along the rails.

Considering he weakened out over the final furlong on debut, the step back to the 900m looks ideal. The experienced hands of Robert Thompson in the saddle are also a big plus.

Newcastle: Race 8 (4:30pm AEDT)
No. 9 Joey's Chance

Joey’s Chance is yet to put a wrong this time in work resuming to run second at Muswellbrook prior to his last start win at Warren in a Class 3 over the 1200m.

This is obviously a much tougher contest for Rodney Northam’s five-year-old, but there is plenty to suggest he can handle it considering his first-up run was among BM66 company.

He’s also placed previously third-up and should enjoy a lovely run in transit here from barrier 5.
