Daily Racing Tips – Saturday, July 2

Rosehill: Race 6 (1:55pm)
No. 7 And We Danced

And We Danced has been freshened since filling the minors over 1400m at Randwick in May, and I think that she’ll prove tough to beat this afternoon.

The Wrote filling has missed placing twice in eight trips to the races, and she placed in each of her two starts in May, finding form around some talented horses.

She will need some luck in running from the wide draw, but she boasts a class edge over a lot of these rivals.

each way
Sunshine Coast: Race 5 (3:23pm)
No. 4 Pomade

Pomade hasn’t been seen at the races since February, but he showed ability during his debut prep, and I think that he can return a cheeky fresh effort in today’s two-year-old feature at the Sunshine Coast..

The Kris Lees-trained gelding won on debut at Doomben and went to the paddock after a luckless run in the Inglis Millennium.

He’s returned a couple of handy trials in the lead-up to his return and the $11 about him at publish looks a bit of value.

Flemington: Race 8 (4:10pm)
No. 5 Looks Like Elvis

Linda Meech will become the first Australian female jockey to win the same feature race four times if she is success in today’s Winter Championship Final, and she climbs aboard leading chance Looks Like Elvis.

Looks Like Elvis has continued to return outstanding performances and results during his recent preps, and he returned a winner here at HQ last month before filling the minors of the Civic Stakes in Sydney last week.

The mile is ideal and the $7.50 about him at publish looks a touch of overs, in my opinion.

best bet
Sunshine Coast: Race 7 (4:45pm)
No. 2 Battleton

The Winx Guineas has been won by some outstanding gallopers in recent seasons, none better than its namesake, and I am confident that Battleton will join the honour at the Sunshine Coast this afternoon.

Battleton ended his 2021 preparation credible fifth in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, and he hasn’t missed placing in three starts back this time.

A repeat of his last-start effort for second behind Kiss Sum on the Gunsynd Classic last time out would be good enough to win this, and he is my best bet of the day.
