Provincial Tuesday racing in NSW will be run at Hawkesbury this week where the rail is in the 4m position from the winning post to the 1300m and true for the remainder.

Soft 7 is the current track reading but no rain is predicted from Monday afternoon onwards.


Hawkesbury Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Setanta

The seven furlongs looks a great starting point for this Maher & Eustace-trained colt off what we saw in his first racing preparation over shorter journeys.

A full brother to dual-hemisphere group one winner in Merchant Navy, Setanta began his career with a strong closing third at Canterbury on January 31 where he was only just shaded by Thermosphere, a subsequent group three winner.

He was a notable big late drifter in the betting following that on February 21 ($4.60-$8.00) and with a somewhat flat performance being delivered, the stewards report did note that jockey Tommy Berry believed he was at the end of his campaign and he was then spelled.

Off two sound trials leading into this fresh assignment and getting onto a circuit that generally allows them to run on, Setanta can resume a winner as the best bet at Hawkesbury on Tuesday.


Hawkesbury Value Bet - Race 7 No. 11 Itasca

From the Scott Singleton yard is this very honest gelding who's been thereabouts all campaign and has had definite excuses via his last two efforts.

In the $72,000 Scone Country Cup on May 15, he should've been a little closer than the eventual fifth-placed run in class record time after striking traffic in the straight at a key stage.

Itasca was specked at big odds last time out in a similar event to what he finds here ($26-$17) where after eventually finding the wrong part of the track, ran third behind the the promising Live And loaded and Kelvinside who was runner-up in the town the start prior.

With that 1800 metre effort under the belt and holding his form at present, Itasca represents good value in the last from Hawkesbury at a double figure quote.
