Today’s free tip is from Gareth Phillips:
3:25pm Wagga Race 5
3 Giddy Up Gidleigh $5.50 with TopSport
Not a race I can accurately price but I think the favourite FLYING SQUAD is too skinny, despite the drop back to country grade. There’s been no hidden merit in her runs, she has a negative jockey change to Robyn (two winners since April), first go at 1200 and has only raced on dry tracks (if it happens to be wet/sting out of the track). Skinny enough! GIDDY UP GIDLEIGH was a strong effort on debut and can improve sharply up to 1200. Stats for horses jumping from 900 to 1200 are solid as long as they are market runners (especially if they ran third last start as Giddy Up did).
