Ellerslie racing tips

Race 2. (11:00) Barfoot & Thompson 3YO (1400m)

#7 – My Annie Belle @ $3.80

My Annie Belle looked the goods when winning on debut at Matamata before taking on strong opposition.

She didn’t get all favours when running third at Ellerslie behind Butterfield, and she’s better for the experience.

Getting in with 55kg makes her tough to beat.

Race 3. (11:35) Auckland Co-Op Taxis Maiden (1200m)

#6 – Vila Belmiro @ $2.30

Vila Belmiro is getting close to a win after consecutive placings at Pukekohe.

The three-year-old son of Santos was a short margin behind the winner at $1.90 odds last start, so punters get better odds this time around.

Getting the inside draw could make all the difference.

Race 4. (12:10) Jamieson Park BM65 (1200m)

#1 – Marengo @ $3.60

Marengo comes off four consecutive second placings, and he’s not going to take long to win.

The son of Charm Spirit ran second behind Butterfield last start, and that form could be franked by My Annie Belle.

Carrying 60kg won’t make it easy, but he’s a strong type.

Race 5. (12:52) Fiber Fresh BM75 (1200m)

#1 – Puketiro @ $3.90

We’re overlooking her last two starts and going on her prior form.

The four-year-old mare by Savabeel owns four wins from seven starts, including being unbeaten in two starts over the distance.

Having Opie Bosson in the saddle helps, and her odds could firm on race day.


Race 6. (13:28) NZ Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes (1600m) – GROUP 1

Riverton racing tips

Race 1. (10:05) Ashford Motor Lodge BM65 (2147m)

#3 – Za Beauteous @ $2.70

Za Beauteous won well earlier this season, and although beaten in five runs since, he hasn’t been far away.

The four-year-old daughter of Derryn gets a valuable 4kg off her back, and she doesn’t need to improve much to win.

Punters could get their day off to a winning start.

Race 2. (10:40) Agri Centre Excellency Stakes (1100m)

#5 – Great Time @ $3.10

Great Time wasn’t too far behind an exciting type on debut, and that form bodes well for this race.

The two-year-old filly by Time Test was 4.1 lengths behind Nucleaozor, who looks like a star in the making.

It’s good to see early betting support, so include her in selections.

Race 4. (11:48) The Ap Restaurant & Bar Aparima Handicap (1200m)

#4 – The Good Shepherd @ $4.60

The Good Shepherd didn’t fire last start, but he’s good enough to bounce back.

He showed his quality when winning two back at Riverton, and a repeat of that effort should be enough to win this race.

He runs his best races at Riverton and getting 3kg off his back helps.

Race 6. (13:00) Rosie Brown Maiden (1400m)

#12 – Ledecky @ $4.00

Ledecky comes from the north with solid form, including a fourth at Matamata last time out.

Northern form always bodes well, especially at Riverton, and we thought her odds would be much shorter with bookmakers.

Take the value before it potentially drops on race day.
