Today’s Horse Racing

  • Mt Gambier (SA) Race 1 jumps at 12:48pm (AEDST) – Bet now at Luxbet

Today’s South Australia’s Mount Gambier Racecourse is set to host a bumper nine-race meet starting at 12:48pm (AEDST) with the $10,000 Carlton Draught / SABOIS Maiden Plate (900m).

After the early morning maiden races the action starts to heat up with a number of exciting handicap features on the programme.

Race 6 the $10,000 The Park Hotel “John Stafford Snr Memorial” Rating 0 – 72 Prov. Series (1400m) at 3:45pm (AEDST) has attracted a large field where our pick to win is #11 On The Trail coming off back-to-back wins.

Next on the card Race 7 the $15,000 The Bellum Hotel Handicap (1200m) at 4:25pm (AEDST) is another highlight and for us #7 Yarrawah looks hard to beat with two close second place finishes at their last starts.

  • Ballarat (VIC)Race 1 jumps at 1:00pm (AEDST) – Bet now at Luxbet

In Victoria the best racing action will be at Ballarat this afternoon where an eight-race programme is due to get underway at 1:00pm (AEDST) with the $15,000 Uni of Ballarat Equine Centre SV 3YO Fillies Maiden Plate (1000m).

Plenty of quality racing to enjoy at Ballarat today including Race 5 the $22,500 Eclipse Ford Country Showcase 0 – 62 Handicap (1100m) at 3:20pm (AEDST) where our pick of the field is #5 Order Me with an ideal draw and nice recent form.

The last race on the card is another one not to miss when Race 8 the $22, 500 Sportsbet.Com.Au Country Showcase 0 – 62 Handicap (1600m) brings things to a close at 5:15pm (AEDST) and where we are tipping the consistent roughie #9 Leaping Leroy at great odds.

  • Gosford (NSW)Race 1 jumps at 1:15pm (AEDST) – Bet now at Luxbet

Another top eight-race line-up will run at Gosford Racecourse in New South Wales this Thursday, the action kicking off at 1:15pm (AEDST) with the $16,000 Paramount Function Centre 3YO Colts & Geldings Maiden Plate (1000m).

Some great Class and Handicap races on the Gosford card today including Race 8 the $16,000 Twilight Meeting 11th March Class 1 Handicap (1200m) due to jump at 5:35pm (AEDST) and where last-start winner #4 My Sabeel for trainer Graeme Rogerson is our pick.

Thursday racing wraps up in WA later this afternoon with Bunbury home to a massive nine-event programme starting at 3:30pm (AEDST) with the $10,000 Amelia Park Maiden (1100m).

The final two events on the Bunbury card look the highlights here.

In Race 8 the $11,500 South West Autumn Racing Carnival Handicap (2038m) at 7:52pm (AEDST) #6 Prisons drawn in barrier two is our favourite to win for Brent Larsson.

In Race 9 the $12,500 XXXX Summer Bright Lager Handicap (1200m) at 8:27pm (AEDST) again it is #6 Jomatesi that we are tipping.
