Hawkesbury Tips October 22


Hawkesbury Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Amica

It's a tough October 22 program from Hawkesbury for a standout, however, back against own sex second-up off a good return without luck, this four-year-old is well placed now over a more suitable 1500m journey.

Prepared by the in-form training partnership of Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou who are striking at 25% in October, Amica drew the widest of 13 first-up at Newcastle where she was forced back early off a good tempo and was of the very few sticking on in that contest after sustaining a wide run just to blend in.

She's a proven weight carrier having lumped 59.5kg for an easy victory over a mile last campaign and with Brenton Avdulla taking the reins, the daughter of Rubick can get a soft run in transit and produce late with expected improvement second-up.


Hawkesbury Value Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Montserrat

This ex-Godolphin galloper is now under the care of Mark Newnham who has a very good record at Hawkesbury with 13 winners on this circuit over the last 12 months at a strike rate of 28.3%, and is striking at better than 30% overall this season when combining with apprentice Tommy Sherry.

Although well held first-up for the new stable where a notable late drifter in the betting ($9.50-$14.00), it's worth just putting a line through that performance as after being a little tardy away from the gates, spent his petrol tickets as a result of racing wide and was entitled to tire.

Montserrat was fresh at seven furlongs there and having not finished outside the top two from both second-up attempts to date, which includes his one victory, he's open to improvement with a better barrier this time around.
