Hawkesbury Tips August 19


Hawkesbury Best Bet - Race 2 No. 5 Tycoon Hallie

With a winning strike rate of 32% so far in August which comes off the back five winners at an ROI of 93% in July, the Brad Widdup stable has been a profitable one for punters to follow and he's playing at home this Thursday.

A mare that is likely to get over more ground deeper into this campaign, Tycoon Hallie showed some potential in her first preparation, which includes two city Maiden attempts and that is standing out in this field, with her main threats all coming from country level.

1300m is a good starting point for this four-year-old who has looked sharper in two winter trials ahead of this return, and given they did opt for the second hit out following a soft heat win on July 16, I'd be surprised if she wasn't wound up to breakthrough fresh.


Hawkesbury Value Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Flying Crazy

Hindsight is wonderful thing in racing, but given he worked every bit as well as the highly touted Remarque who was luckless first-up at Listed level, it's insane that this gelding was allowed to open as an $11 chance in a midweek Maiden on August 4.

While he only got there in the nick of time, it was an enormous debut effort from Flying Crazy who was eased back early from a wide draw and was racing quite keenly before unleashing from the 300m, a galloper that clearly has plenty of improvement to come.

Although this is a very strong Class 1, the time for his Maiden event stacked up superbly for that Kensington meeting (more than two and a half lengths faster overall than the BM72) and from a better draw, they can settle at least a few pairs closer here.


Hawkesbury Feature Tip - Race 7 No. 8 Berdibek

After an even first-up effort in the Scone Cup, he was completely luckless second-up at Rosehill and although not at home on a Heavy 8 compared to Stockman, those two were clearing out from the rest of the field in the McKell Cup (fastest last 600m/400m).

Berdibek arguably should've won the Grafton Cup on July 8, a feature that he was ticking over very well for and although it was not the entire fault of the rider who was trying to save ground, they go very close to winning if he circles them instead of riding for luck.

Brenton Avdulla is back aboard the striking grey for this Rowley Mile attempt and while it's a big drop in trip off the freshen-up, the tick-over trial was sound and sitting off a good speed with that key residual fitness could be the recipe for a much-deserved victory.


Hawkesbury Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Cobia

While there's admittedly a 1.5kg weight swing in the favour Akihiro from their August 5 clash, I'm not in a hurry to back the favourite versus Cobia on Thursday, a galloper that was well supported in an event he should've won by further.

Behind a wall of runners in a muddling affair, he was awkwardly placed from the 400m, forced to retreat under Tim Clark who lost ground before finally getting out at the 200m, whereas Akihiro was in clean air a furlong earlier, so the victory had plenty of merit.

A lightly raced son of Hinchinbrook who was outstanding in a Muswellbrook debut win that stacked up well for Maiden class, Cobia has simply looked hopeless in two Heavy track runs which have been among his subsequent four starts, so happy to ignore those flops.

Tycoon Hallie finds her most winnable assignment to date via the second from Hawkesbury and she's trialled up well twice.

Flying Crazy (Race 6) and Cobia (Race 8) are both leading chances in their respective events.

Berdibek makes some appeal in a competitive Rowley Mile (Race 7).
