Bordertown Tips January 27

Ray White Bordertown Benchmark 64 Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Bordertown Value Bet - Race 3 No. 5 Enbarr

Now in his second preparation for trainer James Dodgson is this ex-Victorian who was sound first-up at Naracoorte and drops in grade for this second-up tilt over a more suitable 1550m trip.

While the month between runs is always a query, Enbarr has been produced off similar patterns which includes a second-up performance in May last year and following a good late market move ($12-$7), ran home fairly for third behind Gaucho and Soleil De Lune, who are both dual winners in Victoria.

Although the son of All American was reeled in on December 27, the form around the first two home from that contest has consistently stood up and a big tick is the bar plates now coming off, which can certainly assist in making up only just under a length on the favourite Kyshaka from that latest clash.

Bordertown Haulage Benchmark 64 Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Bordertown Nest Best Bet - Race 4 No. 2 Greetings Ned

Compared to the opposition who have been competing at a lower level, the pair of Victorian Benchmark 64 attempts to start this preparation does stand out in this field for this gelding who is now crossing the border for an easier option.

As a Benchmark 70 winner at Sandown back in May 2019 before a few failed but short campaigns, Greetings Ned is clearly no slouch and was a well-supported favourite ($3.80-$3.20) prior to his December 17 return at Warrnambool, where he did make late inroads into third.

While he was a little disappointing second-up, the son of Host wasn't beaten far considering the three-wide journey and was somewhat ridden upside down, but with Jason "Stubby" Holder taking the reins on Wednesday, I suspect the experienced hoop will drop out early and let him come with one late run.

Lawrences Irrigation / SABOIS Plus Summer Cup Tips (Race 5)

Bordertown Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Von Costa Glass

After securing a second-up win in August prior to a fifth-place finish in town, this veteran was set some decent asks with a hat-trick of appearances at Listed level and was quite competitive in the last of those efforts with a two-length defeat on October 31 before been given a freshen-up.

The nine-year-old was again sound on Boxing Day when sustaining a long run from the rear and on the January 9 card at Murray Bridge, was much better suited in that smaller field where he landed good wagers as our value bet on that program.

Given Von Costa Glass was held-up until the last furlong, it was a huge win under the circumstances and although the inside draw is a query under claiming apprentice Ben Price, the 4kg drop in the weights for an easier assignment makes him awfully hard to beat here.

Greetings Ned (Race 4) can bounce back off a somewhat disappointing second-up showing,

Enbarr may need one more but with improvement off a fair fresh effort, is in the mix for Race 3.
