PEARCE'S FURNITURE & BEDDING LITHGOW MAIDEN PLATE Tips (Race 2)
Bathurst Best Bet - Race 2 No. 6 Remus
This three-year-old is quite short in the early markets, but with any improvement off an excellent debut in what was a much stronger race, then he should be breaking the Maiden on Tuesday.
Settling at the rear in that 1300m event from Hawkesbury, Remus was chasing My Snow Queen home, a filly who was good in town on debut and has subsequently won a Goulburn Maiden in fast time.
The first three home in that Hawkesbury affair (one that he was only a few strides off winning) have cleared out from the rest of the field and suited by the step to 1400m here, the son of Vancouver looks superbly placed to breakthrough.
CENTRAL WEST ELECTRICAL CG&E MAIDEN HANDICAP Tips (Race 3)
Bathurst Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Questar
I felt his trials were only fair at best, however, the debut effort at Kembla Grange had merit and stepping up to the 1200m now, finds an easier assignment at start two.
Absolutely nothing went right in that May 25 event, where he was snagged back to the rear of the field after jumping well from a wide gate and then chose to ride for luck in the straight, in what was easily the worst part of the track.
Questar has managed to finish midfield despite being set an impossible task and suited in the smaller field here, now gets the services of Blaike McDougall, an aggressive jockey who has ridden the most winners in NSW this season.
KENNARDS HIRE BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)
Bathurst Value Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Lunar Rain
A dual winner on the Provincial circuit and in-form earlier this campaign, this mare from the Jason Coyle is well placed on Tuesday coming back to Benchmark 58 level off a fair effort on May 23.
Via her second and third-up performances back in March and early April, Lunar Rain was building towards a win and rising in grade for her next two outings, was well held prior that latest attempt at Nowra.
The blinkers did go on prior to that most recent run where she was attempting to come home in the worst part of the track and in last from Bathurst, is the only runner coming down in grade barring Careering Away who was well beaten at Muswellbrook.
