Daily Racing Tips – Saturday, December 4

Rosehill: Race 3 (1:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Snitzonfire

Snitzonfire faces a rise in class at Rosehill this afternoon, but he also puts an unbeaten record on the line, and I am confident that he will continue his journey through the grades.

The Snitzel gelding stamped himself as a runner to follow with a smart win on debut at Nowra and he simply hasn’t looked back, scoring here at Rosehill and at Randwick-Kensington respectively.

He has been freshened and sent back to the trials since his last race, and this does looks the next logical step for him.

Doomben: Race 7 (4:48pm AEDT)
No. 2 Niccanova

This race was abandoned on the Gold Coast last week, but almost every galloper has re-accepted, and I am still confident in the chances of Niccanova.

He is unlucky not to have recorded a Group 1 victory during his career, and Niccanova has been one of Queensland’s better gallopers for a few seasons now.

He takes his place in this field second-up and following a competitive fresh effort for fourth in the Keith Noud Quality, and his record at this point of his preparation is excellent.

each way
Doomben: Race 8 (5:28pm AEDT)
No. 3 Kisukano

This is another race pulled over from last weekend’s abandoned meeting and I’m also sticking with Kisukano at a price ($15 at publish).

She was the only horse to deliver Rothfire a defeat during his two-year-old season, and while Kisukano obviously hasn’t scaled the peaks of that rival, she has etched out a lovely record of her own.

She strips fitter for a fair first-up performance for third behind the likes of Kylease at Eagle Farm, and she has missed placing only once at this point of her preparation previously.

Pakenham: Race 9 (5:40pm AEDT)
No. 4 Kissinger

Kissinger will relish a drop in class into the last on Pakenham Cup Day, and he is ready to strike fourth-up.

The Tavistock gelding hasn’t saluted in three starts back this time, but he was only denied by a head in the Ballan Cup at Geelong two starts back, and his late work at Ballarat last time was eye-catching.

He is drawn ideally, gets some relief in the weights and can return to winning form.
