Harness racing selections: Tuesday, October 12

featured, harness racing, Racing

Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Redcliffe getting my focus. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race 1, Number 6, Watts Up Majestic
He’ll be short but he’ll be winning. Smart three-year-old trotter that resumed with a pretty sharp win here two weeks ago when leading throughout and beating up a field which was stronger than what he faces here. Should find the front comfortably and prove to be a rather painless watch.

Next-best: Race 2, Number 4, Timothy Red
Resumes without a trial so a bit of guessing involved, but I think if he’s ready to go, he’ll be too good for this lot. Lightly-raced four-year-old that is first up, having not raced since August 3 when a dominant winner at this track.

Fitness levels are unknown, so the market will tell you if he’s ready. Either way, he’s clearly the one to beat.

Value: Race 7, Number 1, Cherishthememories
She gets a perfect draw to bounce back into positive form. Last couple of runs have been nothing to jump up and down about, but they have come in much stronger races than this. Drops in grade and should get run of the race from the pole, ideally behind the leader. Each way, she’s worth a bet.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race 3, Number 3, Cash Queen
This filly finds a perfect race to get win two on the board. She has had no luck with gates her past four but despite that, she has run really well. Drops a bit in grade for this and comes up with a good draw. Hopefully she can lead and from there, dominate proceedings and get the job done.

Next-best: Race 4, Number 2, Teddy Disco
Takes on the older horses, but he’s a smart juvenile and should be winning. Resumed with a very good second to Leap To Fame at Albion Park, with that horse going on to run well last Tuesday at Menangle, so the form reads super. He should lead and prove too classy.

Value: Race 1, Number 4, Great Fantasy
I think he’s in with a shout each way. Early on in the prep, things looked fruitful for this guy, but overall, he has been quite plain, but in saying that, he has had handicaps to overcome and just hasn’t been able to get involved. He has the front line this time so if he can step away clean, he leads and will take running down.
