Daily Racing Tips – Monday, February 22

Queanbeyan: Race 4 (2:20pm)
No. 6 Liberata

Liberata has a bit of an experience edge over some of these as she gets back to the 1400m mark.

The Sebring mare won her maiden well three weeks ago at the Sapphire Coast winning by two lengths in a much easier contest.

She’s clearly capable of handling further now and will take a power of beating from the soft draw.

Terang: Race 5 (2:30pm)
No. 6 Skyway Star

Skyway Star returned a good effort for fourth first-up at Warrnambool and should appreciate the rise to the mile now.

The daughter of Americain has found the placings in three of her four starts second-up and is also a proven performer over this trip with two wins on the board.

The inside draw should see her doing her best work late.

Terang: Race 7 (3:30pm)
No. 4 The Wild One

The Wild One has mixed his form this time in work, but this does shape up to be a much easier contest for him stepping back in class.

The four-year-old by I Am Invincible finished 4.5L eighth at Geelong last start over a touch further, so the drop back should be to his liking here.

Apprentice Mikaela Lawrence’s claim has been put to good use and the fact he’s won over this trip previously also reads well.

Queanbeyan: Race 7 (4:10pm)
No. 3 Sestina

Sestina has raced well without winning this time in work and tends to save her best racing for this track.

The six-year-old has managed to fill the placings in twice despite struggling for luck at the barriers.

She’ll carry 2kg extra coming off a last start fourth at Wagga, but looks the one to beat from a much softer gate.
