Seymour Tips January 3


Fowles Wines 3yo Fillies Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)


Seymour Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Inez

The three-year-old has made just one racecourse appearance to date and she went close to delivering a first-up success when runner-up in a 1200m maiden at Seymour on December 21.

The Fastnet Rock filly raced wide and behind the speed, having jumped from a wide barrier on that occasion, but she has fared better here with an inside alley for this contest. 

Inez jumped as favourite on that occasion and looked a likely winner before being pegged back by a stronger closer, with the pair two lengths clear of the third. 

While that form hasn’t been tested fully as yet, the third home that day has gone on to deliver a second-place finish at Echuca subsequently. 

That debut effort came on a Good 4 track and with similar underfoot conditions expected here she looks capable of breaking her maiden with Blake Shinn set to ride.

Seymour Roughie - Race 3 No. 18 Leeonardo

The son of Toronado showed improvement in his jump-outs, delivering a third of six in an 800m event at Flemington in November via his final prep before his debut.

That debut came at Geelong seventeen days ago, with the gelding racing from off the pace before delivering a three-length fourth in a 1221m maiden.

The form of that contest has received a boost since, with the winner saluting in a Benchmark 58 handicap at Cranbourne last week.

Leeonardo became unbalanced following crowding at Geelong and while a wide barrier is a negative here. he is expected to have improved for that debut experience. 

The red-hot Anthony & Sam Freedman team can boast a 63% strike-rate (5/8) in set weights sprints here in the last 12 months and their sole runner on the card is taken to spring a surprise.

Vale Paul (Pegsy) Egan BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Seymour Value Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Haaland

The New Zealand-bred galloper has made just two starts on turf, with the best of those efforts coming when beaten over five-and-a-half-lengths in a 2000m maiden at Seymour last May.

The gelding raced on a Soft 6 track on that occasion, but demonstrated good form on the synthetic track at Ballarat in two starts the following month.

While Haaland raced from off the pace in the first of those 2100m maiden races, he settled closer to the speed when saluting by over two lengths in a nine-runner contest subsequently. 

Jockey John Allen knows the gelding well, having ridden him on three of his four starts last prep, including in the previously mentioned maiden success. 

He performed well when runner-up first up in his last spell and Robert HIckmott’s gelding looks value to salute on Wednesday.

Seymour Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Tewkesbury

A maiden winner over 2000m when racing on a Good 4 track at Ballarat in April last year, the gelding was spelled following that success.

The four-year-old has returned in good form this season, placing over 1600m at Ballarat in his first two starts including when runner-up in a Benchmark 64 handicap on November 23.

The step back up in distance proved no issue when fourth over 2000m when racing at metro level at Caulfield last month and the pick shaped as if he’d have no issues with the extra 200m here that day. 

A wide barrier shouldn’t pose too many issues here, with Tewkesbury expected to get across to track the pace under Luke Currie.

The Tony & Calvin McEvoy team have been in good form of late, with a 28% strike-rate (7/25) in the last 30 days and their representative can help them improve on that with a win here.
