Daily Racing Tips – Thursday, June 17

Wyong: Race 1 (11:55am)
No. 2 Tangier

Tangier looks to be a horse of ability and she can break her maiden at Wyong this afternoon.

The Medaglia D’oro filly raced greenly on debut at Newcastle and finished fifth, but she took plenty of benefit from that experience and flashed late to fill the minors at Kembla Grange last time.

Fitter third-up, Rachel King has options from the rails draw and the horse is primed to salute.

Wyong: Race 4 (1:55pm)
No. 6 Volterra

Volterra is another horse primed to strike third-up at Wyong today.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding needed the run when he failed to finish off at Kembla Grange last month, but he too returned a far more polished effort when he mustered an eye-catching turn of foot to finish second at Warwick Farm last time out.

He’s drawn to receive a nice run in behind the pace today under Brenton Avdulla and with even luck, I really cannot find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

Nowra: Race 5 (2:50pm)
No. 5 Toretto

Toretto will take winning form into the fifth at Nowra this afternoon and looks well placed to make it two in a row.

The Matt Dale-trained gelding has improved for each of his three efforts back this time, culminating in an impressive win in maiden company last time.

This is a little harder, but he has plenty of upside and can continue his rise through the grades.

Wyong: Race 6 (3:10pm)
No. 1 Osamu

This is a drop in class for Osamu and I am happy to give him another chance.

He finally broke his maiden at Newcastle two starts back, and the Stakes-performed gelding was stepped back up into metro company for a credible fourth last time out.

He’ll get some much-needed relief in the weights under Dylan Gibbons, and he does have the class edge over these rivals.
