Orange Tips April 16


Orange Best Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Tipping Point

While he's certainly no spoil at the early odds on offer, this three-year-old finds by far his easiest assignment to date after competing in a pair of Provincial Maiden's to start his career and was tipped out following start three, going down as favourite in a much stronger Country event.

After whacking away well over the 1000m at Gosford on debut, Tipping Point did work early before a third at Newcastle on November 24 and although had to settle for fourth at Tuncurry, that Maiden has produced four subsequent winners including Deel Street.

He put a big space on that Kim Waugh-trained filly who broke through at her next start, defeating Shivani in the process, who bolted in at Warwick Farm following that and those references are light years above what anything in this field has achieved.


Orange Feature Tip - Race 7 No. 8 Eva's Deel

This daughter of Dundeel looked well suited stepping up to the 1750m at Muswellbrook on March 26 where while apprentice Liam Blanch rode her a treat, the outside gap he wanted didn't come in the run home which ultimately cost her the race.

Very unlucky in a few Highway attempts last campaign, Eva's Deel got a much-deserved victory on December 5 before being spelled and it's been hard to fault this preparation, but has clearly needed the longer trips after her fourth-place finish in a Country Championships Qualifier.

Even with a very good record of four wins from just 14 starts to date, she could've easily have won another two or three with any luck and now getting up to the 2100m of Friday's Orange Cup, is one of the more progressive runners in quite a competitive field. 


Orange Value Bet - Race 8 No. 7 Prairie Fire

Given the Albury circuit was massively favouring the on-pace runners over their two-day carnival, it was an enormous effort by this gelding to make the ground he did as the eventual runner-up in 900m scamper of the Flat Knacker, defeating Bomdiggity who he meets again on Friday.

Prairie Fire was the only runner to make inroads in that Country Sprint feature and in what was a strange second-up placement following that, the son of Snitzel was asked to lump an impossible impost of 67.5kg, which may have been an intended blowout to set him for the rest of the autumn.

There aren't any better hoops on the Country NSW circuit than Blaike McDougall who takes the ride and with any resemblance of the fresh effort, he has to be right in this and there has been good early money for him, suggesting he can bounce back.

Tipping Point finds a very weak Maiden in Race 4 from Orange and he's trialed up well ahead of the return.

Eva's Deel was luckless last start and is a leading chance in the Orange Cup (Race 7).

Off the first-up run, Prairie Fire is a good chance in the last.
