Bordertown Tips May 19

Bordertown Stone Supplies Benchmark 68 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Bordertown Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Exalted Beast

He's managed to record four wins in what is his second racing preparation, prevailing in Maiden/Class 1 company on February 28 before going back-to-back on a BM68 in town, defeating Dreamed and Canford in the process, two subsequent city winners.

Providing he handled the quick back-up, Exalted Beast did appear a good thing on paper via the May 5 program from Murray Bridge and he's absolutely bolted in, putting six and a half lengths on Plaisir (won last Wednesday) and Biarchi (third in the Group Three SA Classic).

While I'm hugely respecting his stable mate Exalted Ambition on the seven day turnaround, who appears to be the main threat. he was well held in a weaker race while this gelding drops half a kilo for an event that is no harder.

Tasco Benchmark 58 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Bordertown Value Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Gasworx

Off his Benchmark 64-70 form in Victoria over the last few years, he'd be comfortably the one to beat in this Country 58, which is a decent drop in grade compared to the company he had been running against.

The son of O'Reilly was well held over most of last winter, hence the odds here although his first two runs this year weren't bad by any means, especially the January effort at Ararat when hitting the line well fresh over 1200m.

Competing in the Penola Cup (1700m) first-up for the new stable was an ask, and he was beaten a long way although it's worth noting the saddle did slip in the run while suitably placed back in trip off a freshen-up, can easily figure in a race of this nature.

McCarthy Transport Benchmark 68 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Bordertown Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Exalted Maxine

Back to the midweeks third-up when going to the front and opening up a big space, she should've won, but unfortunately Stacey Metcalfe failed to ride her out late and the apprentice rider received a two-month suspension as a result.

Mistakes happen (she's only human) and that performance at least gave us confidence that Exalted Maxine was back on track, a mare that was a BM72 winner in town last spring, so is clearly no slouch and she generally does hold her form.

Bolt I Am was the winner of that May 5 contest, a galloper that was coming back in grade after contesting a string of Saturday events and dropping to 1300m on Wednesday, is better suited on paper, especially carrying one less kilo after the Ben Price claim.
