Northam Tips July 1


Northam Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Ginger Baker

Now with three runs under his belt this preparation and getting the services of 'The Wizard' William Pike for Thursday's assignment, this is well and truly D-day for this gelding who does look better placed back to 1400m from a soft draw.

He was cricket score odds on resumption in a Saturday three-year-old contest at Belmont, but it was a strong return when ridden cold from a wide gate before rattling of comfortably the fastest last 600m of that 1300m event (33.73).

Off that first-up performance, Ginger Baker is closer to a $1.50 chance in this Provincial Class 1 and via his last two attempts in deeper affairs, he was strong again via the second-up effort before enduring a wide run here on June 17.


Northam Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Cornflower

While What About Moi is likely to be the best horse in this field going forward, the favourite is still work in progress and from an awkward position, he was a little lucky to salute over this track and trip on June 17.

The galloper in this Class 3 field that is dropping the most in grade in Cornflower, an honest mare from the Alan Matthews stable who caught the eye fresh for a third behind Miss Maranta, who was luckless following that before bouncing back at Belmont yesterday.

Staying at seven furlongs second-up in a Saturday event, she just wasn't well suited when one-paced in the run home against that company, but up to a mile third-up and in a race with much less depth, this four-year-old is a good each-way chance.


Northam Value Bet - Race 9 No. 5 Convalesce

Many of the Steve Wolfe-trained runners do improve deeper into their preparations and while this gelding hasn't quite kicked on with it after a good start to the campaign, I do like him getting to a mile now, especially from a good draw.

There was clearly an opinion of Convalesce early given he was fancied against some slick juveniles over his four outings, however, has clearly needed a little more time and with maturity, has always looked a galloper that will get over a trip.

Finishing just half a length off a handy Son Son via his 1500m attempt last December, he has dropped in distance via his last two outings which have both been set up for off-speed runners, but at 1600m, a few of these chasing may be out of their comfort zone.

Generally corporate bookies provide betting markets a day or two prior before a meeting at Northam.



With a key jockey change, dropping to a suitable trip and drawing well, Ginger Baker wins Race 5 from Northam or he's in the never again file.

On an each-way basis, Cornflower appeals third-up in Race 8 where she's down in grade and the mile is a tick.

Convalesce hasn't exactly set the world on fire of late, but up to a mile and from a low draw, he's not hopeless in the last at big odds.
