Free Racing Tips July 8: Gareth’s Winners
Today’s free tip is at Warwick Farm:
Race 2 #5 Celandine: currently $3.50 with TopSport
What am I missing? On debut she races green and gets narrowly beaten by today’s Grafton Guineas (hot race) favourite Fashchanel, putting a margin on four subsequent winners including the likes of Fulmina and Collette. Then she gets completely slaughtered on Boxing Day as second pick to Rari.
She then goes to Kembla, misses the kick and gets beaten 0.3 lengths by Get The Idea who wins by three lengths next start and persuades John Sargeant to tackle a G1. And finishes alongside Opacity who won up to Metro Saturday BM78!
Easy recent trial with the second horse winning by a margin since. And it’s second pick to a horse that would have to be one of the cheapest buys Team Hawkes has ever bought.
I know it’s guesswork against a “boom” first starter, but I am rolling the dice.
