Daily Racing Tips – Monday, July 19

Casterton: Race 4 (2:30pm)
No. 3 Grabowski

He returned a flat effort at Ballarat last time and was found to be lame in the wake, but I am happy to give Grabowski another chance in the fourth at Casterton today.

The Street Boss gelding is unlucky not to have already recorded a race win, and finished second in races at Echuca, Warrnambool and Geelong prior to his last start miss.

He looks to be at peak fitness for this race and might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

Casterton: Race 5 (3pm)
No. 5 Lost Impact

Lost Impact will have her first start for Lindsay Smith at Casterton this afternoon and can begin her rise through the grades.

The Deep Impact mare had three starts for Stephen O’Halloran during her debut prep, finishing second on debut and winning at Hawkesbury most notably.

She definitely has the talent, and I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish.

Casterton: Race 6 (3:30pm)
No. 2 A Fighting Fury

A Fighting Fury has improved for each of his first four starts back this time and is ready to win at Casterton this afternoon.

He finished midfield at Hamilton and Ballarat at his first two starts back, but has mustered an eye-catching turn of foot to finish close at Pakenham and Warracknabeal at his last two.

He looks to be at peak fitness for this contest and with even luck, he too might not get a better chance to win.

Casterton: Race 8 (4:30pm)
No. 14 Unlimited Ability

This shapes as one of the more open races of the day at Casterton and Unlimited Ability has claims on winning at a lovely price ($10 at publish).

The Equiano gelding has had three starts since transferring to the care of Bob & Kane Post and he has improved with each, culminating in a credible second placing here last time.

He’ll take further improvement into this race and we can have an each-way play at the price.
