GLOUCESTER PARK WA HARNESS TIPS | TUESDAY 17 MAY 2022

Gloucester Park is an 804 metre circuit which generally allows an on pace advantage.

This can sometimes be levelled out as racing can be very competitive and those that are good enough can win from anywhere.

BEST BACK OF THE NIGHT: Race 5 | #1 Smart Fortune (WIN) at $1.50+

Smart Fortune is going much better than his figure form would suggest. He will lead for fun here and that gives him his chance to get back into the winners’ circle. He has a sensational record when leading and he will stack them up. There is nothing going well enough here to cover ground and beat him.

BEST LAY OF THE NIGHT: Race 2 | #1 Arma Xfactor (WIN) at < $2.50

Just think this bloke has come up way too short. He will be holding up, but will have pressure from both the 4 and 5 early. I am not sure he can withstand that pressure at this stage of his career and still have a kick left at the end.


RACE 1 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONSAND TIPS

6. American Arma
2. Bettors Destroya
7. Paroquet
3. Pivotal

Bettors Destroya is the one to beat courtesy of the draw. She should work past the pole marker with no problem, but I am concerned Paroquet will be exceptionally aggressive, as she has been driven tough at all of her most recent runs.

This will give American Arma the last look from most likely the 1×1 position – 1×2 at worst. American Arma finished alongside Bettors Destroya three starts ago at Pinjarra. Happy to be on that slightly better value.

BETTING STRATEGY

BACK (WIN) – American Arma at $3.00+


RACE 2 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONS AND TIPS

8. Whos The Dad
1. Arma Xfactor
5. Rambo Rabbit
4. Linebacker

Speed here from 1, 4 and 5 – and I’m not keen to back any of them if they get involved in a speed war, in particular Arma Xfactor.

Whos The Dad is the one that may get to a nice price and only finished 2 metres behind the favourite last start after sitting outside of him. He is too short at the $5.00, but with a drift he can get involved.

BETTING STRATEGY

BACK (WIN) – Whos The Dad at $8.00+

LAY (WIN) – Arma Xfactor at < $2.50


RACE 3 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONS AND TIPS

7. El Chema
8. Ifeel Sikdarl
4. Johnny Lombo
2. Bealawyer

El Chema is not a horse to take this short of a price about, but can’t see him being beaten.


RACE 4 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONS AND TIPS

6. Aristocratic Star
8. Heza Head Honcho
1. Twentynine Twelve
10. Our Surrogate

Expect Aristocratic Star’s class to shine through, but Heza Head Honcho not impossible to win if crosses.


RACE 5 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONSAND TIPS

1. Smart Fortune
4. Rock Me Over
10. Rocknroll Whitby
3. The Tiger Army

Smart Fortune is going much better than his figure form would suggest. He will lead for fun here and that gives him his chance to get back into the winners’ circle. He has a sensational record when leading and he will stack them up. There is nothing going well enough here to cover ground and beat him.

BETTING STRATEGY

BACK (WIN) – Smart Fortune at $1.50+


RACE 6 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONS 

1. Disco Dynamo
6. Rock On The Beach
2. Eton Rock
3. Burghley Shard

Disco Dynamo is a horse with plenty of ability and I give him a reasonable chance of holding up here if he does everything right. He has drawn 1 twice in his career, leading easily on one occasion and busted the other. If he gets it right, his high speed should see him in front and I believe the one to run down.

BETTING STRATEGY

BACK (WIN) – Disco Dynamo


RACE 7 | SCOTT HILL’S SELECTIONS 

2. Patched
1. Aldebaran Sunset
3. Sunnys Little Jestic
4. Tears Of Joy

Patched will be winning as long as he trots.
