Daily Racing Tips – Friday, December 18

Goulburn: Race 1 (1:50pm AEDT)
No. 5 Shamani

Shamani is clearly an above-average galloper, and she can continue her rise through the grades at Goulburn this afternoon.

Shamani is yet to miss placing in three starts since debuting, and broke her maiden in style at Wyong two back before just being pipped late at the same track last time out.

The rise in trip looks ideal at this point of her preparation, and it also looks to be a weaker race.

Goulburn: Race 3 (3pm AEDT)
No. 2 Sedona

He has been charged with carrying 60kgs, but Sedona has a class edge over most of these rivals and will take beating.

The Bel Esprit gelding returned some lovely efforts last time in, and clearly needed the run when he finished fourth behind El Cohete at Warwick Farm when fresh.

With improvement from that effort, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish today.

Goulburn: Race 4 (3:40pm AEDT)
No. 4 Zenardini

This looks to be an appropriate drop in class for Zenardini and she might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

The Bernardini mare has finished third in each of her four starts back from a spell, all in provincial company, and she looks to be in peak fitness for today’s contest.

Back to country level and from the good draw, she can win.

The Valley: Race 4 (8pm AEDT)
No. 4 Storming The Seas

Storming The Seas has only made one appearance at the races so far, but he couldn’t have been more impressive on debut, and he can continue his rise through the grades at The Valley tonight.

Storming The Seas trialled well around some decent horses prior to his debut, and charged home to score over 1000m at Mornington earlier this month.

This is harder, but he harbours plenty of upside and at around the $10 mark, we can have a genuine each-way play.
