Gosford horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (13:45) Dedicate Forte Stressgard Maiden (1100m)

#1 – Californiasilencer @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Peter and Paul Snowden line up the talented filly who started her career with consecutive second placings.

The daughter of I Am Invincible wasn’t far behind some nice types at Newcastle and Hawkesbury and her recent trial is a good sign.

She gets the services of William Pike in the saddle and her opening odds of $3.60 have firmed significantly, which is another good sign.

Race 2. (14:20) Syngenta Posterity Maiden (1000m)

#10 – Swift Sweet @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The two-year-old filly finished third at Rosehill on debut behind Calgary Stampede and that is a good form guide for midweek racing.

Her trial form since has been only fair, but her most recent trial was a third placing at Randwick behind Ebhaar.

The well-bred daughter of Snitzel had solid betting support on debut and they have come again, so with only 53.5kg on her back, we’re putting her on top.

Race 3. (14:55) Global Golf Maiden (1600m)

#2 – Inuwashi @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Chris Waller lines up the four-year-old son of Free Eagle who owns two placings from as many starts.

He started his career with a placing as a $61 chance before running second behind The Artefact at Canterbury as a $3.70 elect.

Having Hugh Bowman in the saddle is a bonus, and despite the drifting odds after opening at $3.90, punters should be confident of a big effort.

Race 4. (15:30) Adama Quail-Pro Maiden (1100m)

#4 – Endorsement @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Endorsement has looked above average at the trials and we’re not surprised by the betting push.

The Waller-trained son of Hinchinbrook has had four trials for two wins, including a last start win at Rosehill by 2.5 lengths.

Bookmakers opened him short at $2.90, but not short enough for punters. He has been backed into $2.60 and we suggest more money will come for him.

It’s another good ride for Bowman and he could go back-to-back.

Race 5. (16:05) Turfculture Fungicide BM72 (1200m)

#7 – Shades of Rose @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Shades of Rose was far too good for them at Bathurst last time out and that was a top outing.

The three-year-old filly scored by 7.8 lengths in dominant fashion and it suggests she can measure up in the city.

There has been a stack of money for her after opening at $3.20, so it could pay to jump on now before the odds shorten even further.

Race 6. (16:40) Turfcare Australia BM72 (1600m)

#1 – Off Shaw @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Bjorn Baker-trained gelding was disappointing at Canterbury last start, but we’re prepared to forgive that effort.

He looked much better when placing in consecutive starts to kick off his campaign and punters get value odds for the risk.

He opened $6.50 and has since drifted to $8, so he’s at a backable price and we’re putting him in our selections.
