Newmarket Handicap 2022 Tips


Newmarket Handicap 2022 Best Bet - Home Affairs

This three-year-old was awesome in the Lightning Stakes and although some say he should have run second, Nature Strip got his head in front and this bloke had the will to kick back.

Home Affairs has been given no favours with 56kg, but I feel he could well be the best sprinter in the country, which warrants him having this weight, even as a three-year-old.

The colt will race on the pace and most importantly, out wide where we generally want to be in these Flemington straight track races.

Newmarket Handicap 2022 Next Best Bet - Artorius

On raw talent, this colt does rival Home Affairs, so getting 6kg off of the in the Newmarket Handicap would normally have him as my top selection.

His issue is the maturity level and the unpredictability of him means we never know which Artorius will turn up on race day, but the $12 is starting to get a little generous.

He has a negative racing pattern and has drawn the inside, but what he has is one of the more powerful finishes in the field, so look for him late under Froggy Newitt.

Newmarket Handicap 2022 Value Bet - Swats That

This mare could be one that is overlooked given that she was fourth in the Lightning Stakes, beaten marginally by Eduardo, with Home Affairs and Nature Strip not far away.

Her trials leading into this prep were A1 and she has a 5.5kg weight swing on Home Affairs from last start, which gives her a chance to turn the tables.

Swats That draws barrier six which is a slight concern, but she can settle midfield and may just need a split at the right time to produce her best.
