Today’s Horse Racing Tips – January 2

Racing and Sports highlight our standout plays for Australian TAB meetings on January 2.

Six TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Wednesday at Sapphire Coast, Taree, Sandown, Doomben, Pinjarra & Strathalbyn.

Sandown: Race 7 @ 4:30pm


Robe De Fete and Humzz go forward and look to contest the lead. HAWKSHOT is very talented but he needs to settle in his races. Overdid things down the straight first up and couldn't finish off. Has that fresh run under the belt now and should get a strong tempo here. Two big ticks for him. Stablemate FABIAN'S SPIRIT is a good talent as well based on his debut win. Will be interesting to see how barrier one works out for him but suspect he is right up to winning races at this level. ELIGERE did a good job to win on debut and has to be considered along with ANOTHER BIT. SELECTIONS: Hawkshot has the talent to beat these.

Sapphire Coast: Race 2 @ 2:53pm

Denman Flyer, Sheoak, Newtown Is Coming and Living Doll all capable of injecting good early speed. LIVING DOLL has been a model of consistency this prep. Drops back sharply in grade after a brave effort in Open company at Moruya last start. Claim helps offset the big weight. Won at this course, class and distance three starts back. NEWTOWN IS COMING won two back at Nowra. Drops back in trip after disappointing over 1200m at Goulburn. HALLIDAY ROAD turned his form around last prep with a slender second at Wagga. SELECTIONS: #1 Living Doll straight out.

Taree: Race 3 @ 3.10pm

HAAMES made an encouraging return when he worked to the line well for a 1L second at this course. Jumps straight to the mile but has a win and a placing from two previous attempts at the trip and will be improved. Ready to strike. WESTERN SAGA scored over this distance at Dubbo last outing and is proven at the course. Big chance to go back to back. RUGENBRAU will be fitter for two runs since a spell and won his only previous attempt at the mile. Could be a big improver. SELECTIONS: #1 Haames to win up to the mile second up from #7 and #5.

Doomben: Race 6 @ 5.02pm (AEDT)

AL MAGICO is a progressive gelding yet to miss a place. Overcame an early blunder to win well at Lismore last start. Better again third up and has plenty of upside. Big chance to win again. CABEIRIAN is racing well having placed at his last three starts. Gets blinkers on and that could give him the lift he needs to get across the line first. LE BEAU RENARD will find this easier than last start. Was consistent before that. SELECTIONS: #5 Al Magico is progressive. Backing to win from #4 and #9.

Strathalbyn: Race 7 @ 8.00pm (AEDT)

FROSTY GREY showed good improvement second up when leading and boxing on well for second at Gawler. Kah sticks with her and any further progression third up sees her hard to beat. DE JORVIK found winning form again at this course last start. Has won three of four run here and three from five at the distance. Drawn well so ticks a few boxes. STAGHORN was placed last start and has claims again. OUTINTHESTREET has run fourth at both starts this time in. Can peak third up. SELECTIONS: #5 Frosty Grey to peak and win third up from #2, #6 and #1.
