HOBART | TASMANIAN HARNESS TIPS | SUNDAY 3 JULY
Track / Meeting Overview:
Harness racing is back to Hobart for a nine-event card on Sunday night where there looks a few plays I’m keen on.
BEST BACK OF THE DAY: Race 9 | #3 Arden Roanoke
We can round out the night with Arden Roanoke. If he runs up to his past two efforts, he should be winning.
BEST LAY OF THE DAY: Race 3 | #4 Most Perfect Major
Most Perfect Major will push forward but the question is, will the lead be there? I’m not sure it will be.
RACE 1 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Dukes Choice (2)
2. Karalta Artemis (7)
3. Promis Stride (3)
4. Always Be Brendan (8)
DUKES CHOICE (2) showed in his first campaign that he has ability, so with a good break, he resumes from a handy draw.
BACK (WIN) – Dukes Choice for 3 units
RACE 2 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Stylish Trend (13)
2. De Marco Beach (2)
3. Iden Boutique (1)
4. Remember Me Now (5)
Here we have a 33-49 rated affair where the old veteran STYLISH TREND (13) is looking for a winning hat-trick and that’s something I doubt he has achieved before. He is racing at the peak of his powers and can overcome the draw.
DE MARCO BEACH (2) resumed from a long break for a gutsy win and should only come on from that. He draws to be on speed throughout so is sure to be dangerous late.
BACK (WIN) – Stylish Trend for 3 units
BACK (WIN) – De Marco Beach for 3 units
RACE 3 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Iden Miss Lucy (9)
2. Most Perfect Major (4)
3. Better Amour (8)
4. Lalasa (3)
BETTER AMOUR (8) gets into this race very well and draws to get the soft trip, so if the gaps open up, she has the turn of foot late to get over the top.
BACK (WIN) – Better Amour for 3 units
RACE 4 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Midnight Calm (9)
2. Cool Scooter (2)
3. Tarleton Riley (1)
4. Sharmey (4)
MIDNIGHT CALM (9) was stiff last week getting held up behind a tiring leader before finishing strongly. He gets a good trailing draw, so will have clear running and take holding out.
TARLETON RILEY (1) draws to get the perfect trip, so look for him to be finishing hard up the lane.
BACK (WIN) – Midnight Calm for 3 units
BACK (WIN) – Tarleton Riley for 1.5 units
RACE 5 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. The Shallows (7)
2. Buster William (3)
3. Racketeers Boy (5)
4. Call Me Hector (6)
This is a stand start for the open class performers where the back marker, THE SHALLOWS (7), will be looking to overcome the 30m over the short trip, which is not easy. He steps well, so should make it up quickly and if they run along at steady fractions, he’ll get his chance to round up his rivals.
BACK (WIN) – The Shallows for 4 units
RACE 6 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Buster Byron (10)
2. Fighting Fire (11)
3. Shaun to the Max (3)
4. Lesya (4)
BUSTER BYRON (10) just keeps getting the job done and there is no reason to jump off yet. He will look to make an early move and if happening to bully his way to the top, they may not catch him.
FIGHTING FIRE (11) will be hoping to get a cart into the race as he has the speed to be dangerous late.
BACK (WIN) – Buster Byron for 4 units
BACK (WIN) – Fighting Fire for 3 units
RACE 7 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS\
1. Vigoroso (10)
2. Botany Bay Warrior (11)
3. Kikkimi (2)
4. Karmic Fire (4)
VIGOROSO (10) has his foot on the till and this is his best chance to get back into the winner’s stall. He’s versatile, so can make his own luck and looks the one to beat.
KIKKIMI (2) is going ok and gets a front row draw, so look for her to take advantage and dictate from there.
BACK (WIN) – Vigoroso for 3 units
BACK (WIN) – Kikkimi for 1.5 units
RACE 8 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Our Balou (10)
2. Aha Reaction (9)
3. Colby Sanz (3)
4. Kuzma (7)
OUR BALOU (10) got too keen last week, so getting back to the second row, he can a settle and track into the race.
BACK (WIN) – Our Balou for 3 units
RACE 9 | KEY RUNNERS AND TIPS
1. Arden Roanoke (3)
2. Major Lester (6)
3. We Salute You (10)
4. Captain Cosmonaut (12)
The last of the night is for the 60-64 rated performers, with ARDEN ROANOKE (3) looking the likely one. He found the lead last week and only got run down by a handy type, so with his absence, he can settle on speed and take catching.
BACK (WIN) – Arden Roanoke for 4 units
