Port Macquarie Tips October 8


FLOWER HOTELS BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP Tips (Race 4)


Port Macquarie Best Bet - Race 4 No. 8 Pandora Blue

Despite still racing quite greenly, this daughter of Hallowed Crown went back-to-back comfortably at starts two and three in February before being tipped out, resuming on September 23.

Off a trial where she worked as well as the handy Godolphin pair of Gravina and Kementari, Pandora Blue started favourite at Hawkesbury where she was a little plain, albeit not beaten far.

The four-year-old still wasn't disgraced and dropping 2.5kg for a country BM66 where she draws much kinder in gate five, I'm happy to give her another chance in what is a modest affair.


2021 BIRDON GROUP SPRINT Tips (Race 5)


Port Macquarie Roughie - Race 5 No. 12 Sausalito

It's a competitive field with speed everywhere you look, and one that will camp off them then look to chime in late is this gelding from the Paul Perry yard, who was a little unlucky at Wyong.

An honest sprinter that will finally find a good surface on Friday (all six wins have come on top of the ground), Sausalito is generally thereabouts, mixing from these country dashes to Provincial 64's.

While he lacks the class of at least a few of these, hence his price, the son of Sebring is hard fit and consistent, while with a tow into it late, a finish in the top three or four wouldn't at all shock.


FASTPLAST BUILDING SUPPLIES HASTINGS CUP Tips (Race 6)


Port Macquarie Value Bet - Race 6 No. 11 Chase My Crown

This four-year-old has much more talented than her rating suggests, with chasing efforts behind Parksville and a placing in a Country Championship Qualifier at just start five supporting that.

Held up for much of the run home two starts back at Newcastle and then placed on heels late, Chase My Crown arguably should've beaten Never Been Kissed, who won the Flight Stakes at her next outing.

From a wide gate, the mare was ridden upside down when covering ground in a Highway third-up, but with a colder steer and if allowed to finish off, she's in the mix here with a few more favours.

Verdict

Pandora Blue (Race 4) had trialled well prior to the return effort, so happy to give her another chance second-up from a better draw and a lower weight.

At longer prices, Sausalito (Race 5) and Chase My Crown (Race 6) have some claims.

Value Bet: Chase My Crown Each Way $16.00 at Topsport - 1 Unit
Roughie: Sausalito Each Way $26.00 at Bookmaker - 1 Unit
