Northam Tips August 13


Northam Value Bet - Race 1 No. 10 Hallsy Express

It's not a vintage maiden to open Thursday's Northam program and this mare has shown enough in her two trials leading into this debut assignment.

After catching the eye in her first public hit-out on July 13, she again looked to have plenty more to offer as runner-up in her most recent hit-out at Lark Hill on July 27 in what was fair time for that morning.

On both occasions she's been at her strongest late and especially after the line under jockey Jason Whiting who sticks from them trials and he has barrier four at his disposal for this 1100m contest.

There are certainly no world beaters in this field and as the pick of those from the trials, Hallsy Express is an each-way option early in this meeting.


Northam Value Bet - Race 6 No. 8 Roll The Goodtimes

If we're looking around the odds-on favourite in Delta Belle who could very well win this by default albeit hasn't exactly set the world on fire this time in, then this gelding has claims.

His form has been mostly consistent in 2020 with the highlight being a victory back in April and following that, has been thereabouts in pretty similar company to what he finds here.

Last time out he was more than five weeks between runs at Belmont on July 29 and held up at the top of the straight when at the rear before making some inroads on the inside for a midfield finish.

With enough speed engaged and looking to wind-up late on this big circuit that has a cutaway in the straight, Roll The Goodtimes can figure late with the in-form Clint Johnston-Porter taking the reins.


Northam Best Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Sunnysilk

Despite taking on older oppostion here in the last race of the Northam card as a just turned three-year-old, the daughter of Snippetson should have too much class for this line-up.

After four competitive efforts in some very handy two-year-old contests last time in, she was able to break the maiden in February at Ascot before being tipped out for a spell.

Some of them prior outings were close defeats behind a host of stakes class gallopers that includes Gemma's Son (arguably the best two-year-old in WA last season) abd Dom To Shoot who only narrowly missed at group level later that campaign.

The July 27 Lark Hill trial leading into this return was the best she's looked when cruising away to score an easy win and for David Harrison who's striking at 24% this season, Sunnysilk looks well placed for a fresh kill as the best bet on the program.
