Hawkesbury Racing Tips For March 17 2020

Provincial NSW racing heads to Hawkesbury this Tuesday where there's a chance of more showers on Tuesday.

The track is currently in the Soft 7 range and the rail is in the true position.

Hawkesbury Best Bet

Race 1 No. 1 Dreaming Of Gold

Third-up and with a string of runner-up efforts to begin her career, this daughter of Magic Albert gets another chance to breakthrough here.

She resumed on a Soft 7 surface when chasing home all bar the talented Icebath who won a Class 1 straight after that and was beaten under a length in a Group Three last Friday.

Following that she was barely reeled in by Cathars here on March 7 when hitting the front a long way out with the victor in Cathars dropping back from city maidens and that race has already produced another subsequent winner.

That form reads well for Dreaming Of Gold who shouldn't be disadvantaged by the drop in trip on this going and fit, is the one to beat in the opener as the best bet at Hawkesbury.

Hawkesbury Next Best Bet

Race 2 No. 4 For Love

From the Matthew Smith yard is this filly who could be the value option in this Class 1 if we forgive her last start Canberra attempt.

Arriving second-up there off a promising third place at Newcastle, this three-year-old was disappointing in that February 21 run, however there may have been excuses with the tongue-tie getting applied here which suggests she could've choked down.

The form around that first-up field she placed in reads superbly with the runner-up Vivaro winning at BM70 level in Melbourne since then and there was a stack of multiple winners that finished behind For Love on that occasion.

This isn't a strong race and For Love is a price to bounce back off a slight freshen-up and with a few key gear changes added.

Hawkesbury Value Bet

Race 7 No. 9 Maroch

This four-year-old found our blackbook file on after a chasing effort for second at Kensington on February 19 behind Segalas (since runner-up in stronger grade) and the form has stood up behind this gelding from that event.

Human Nature (subsequent Melbourne winner), Piping Roller (Newcastle winner last Friday) and Iconic Star (since won a Benchmark 78) have franked the form strongly from that particular race.

From barrier one, he found himself in the wrong part of the wet track on March 4 in his latest attempt, so for now, I'm willing to put a line through that run.

Up in trip and not far off a peak now third-up, Maroch  makes nice each way appeal outside the talented California Salto who's easily the toughest to beat on class, but may be suspect fresh on this going.
