Stawell Tips February 22


CUB Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)


Stawell Roughie - Race 2 No. 6 Cat Empire

The mare showed ability in three starts for previous trainer John Salanitri last season, including when beaten just over four lengths in fourth at Warrnambool two starts back.

The four-year-old contested an 1100m maiden on a Good 4 that day and joined current handler Vincent Malady following a five-length sixth over 1300m at Bendigo in March. 

Cat Empire has recorded some solid efforts in jump outs in recent times, shaping like an improved performer including when runner-up at Camperdown earlier this month.

The daughter of Sebring has a good barrier five from the rail here, while she appears to handle most surfaces.

Mitchell Aitken and Vincent Malady teamed up successfully with Morning Darling at Bendigo recently and they may prove up to recording another win here.

Stawell Best Bet - Race 6 No. 3 Verbosity

Trained by Andrew Bobbin, Verbosity arrives here in good form, having finished in the top two in four of his five starts since being freshened earlier this prep.

The four-year-old demonstrated that he can be a force at a higher level when beaten just over two lengths into sixth at Morphettville Parks on February 3.

The gelding was bidding to complete a hat-trick on that occasion, following wins at Echuca and in a Benchmark 68 handicap at Penola two starts back.

Both of those victories came over 1300m and the step back up in distance is in his favour here.

While Verbosity was ridden from off the pace last tim,  he is a versatile type tactics-wise and racing on his home, he track looks up to saluting under Harry Coffey.

Stawell Value Bet - Race 7 No. 9 Demon Blood

With a number of the runners here expected to want to go forward, this race may well be set up for a closer.

Demon Blood fits the bill in that regard, having been ridden from off the pace in three of his four starts this prep, with the last two coming under his jockey here Declan Bates. 

While the gelding failed to shine when down the field in a 1330m Benchmark 58 at Geelong, itt’s notable that he jumped at odds of $31 on that occasion.

He took a marked step forward when beaten a length into third via a Benchmark 58 handicap over 1112m eleven days later.

Demon Blood showed signs that his next win might not be far away at Benalla , aving been winless since scoring via a metro race at Morphettville in May last year.
