Kembla Grange Classic Day 2020 Tips

The $200,000 Group Three Kembla Grange Classic in Race 6 headlines the big Provincial meeting in NSW on Friday.

Whilst the track is currently in the Soft 6 range, we should be looking at an upgrade with dry conditions expected and the rail is in the true position.

Kembla Grange Classic Day Best Bet

Race 5 No. 8 Darling Point

This well bred filly from the astute Bard Widdup yard looks perfectly placed here stepping up to the mile now third-up from a spell.

By Lonhro and out of a dual group winning mare in Empress Rock, there's clearly always been an opinion of her as she's been thrown in the deep end at group two level now twice in just six career starts.

One of them was first-up this time in where she was outclassed over six furlongs in the Light Fingers Stakes before arriving back to this level on February 29 where a wide gate had her three wide the trip and covering ground off a hot speed.

There wasn't much wrong with the effort considering and here with barrier two at Hugh Bowman's disposal, Darling Point should get every chance from a soft draw as the best bet at on Kembla Grange Classic Day.

Kembla Grange Classic Day Value Bet

Race 7 No. 4 Al Mah Haha

It's a competitive Class 2 to end the Kembla Grange Classic card, however it's hard to fault the recent form of this five-year-old who's opened up at big odds.

He was spotting 3.5kg to the winner when resuming as runner-up at Canterbury on January 22 as a narrowly beaten runner-up over 1100m before tackling a $150,000 Country Championships Qualifier at Moruya.

Couldn't match Julian Rock on that occasion but he's certainly no slouch and Al Mah Haha did put a safe enough margin on the rest whilst now with hard run 1400m effort under the belt, he'll strip fitter.

With a likely improving surface only enhancing this geldings chances, he makes each way appeal at the early double figure quote.

Kembla Grange Classic Tip

Race 6 No. 5 Nudge

A superbly bred three-year-old from the Chris Waller stable is filly who's Rosehill return on February 22 had merit.

This daughter of Fastnet Rock and out of a stakes winning dam who's already produced a multiple group one winner in Julinsky Prince, she wasn't there to be knocked around fresh and settled towards the rear early.

Her last 100m was terrific when rattling home along the inside for fifth and she joins the winner not all that long after the line with the step up to a mile being ideal now.

Nudge was a second-up winner in her first campaign prior to a close third at group level when heading to Melbourne and on an each way basis, she's the early value in 2020 Kembla Grange Classic.
