Tamworth Tips August 7


Tamworth Best Bet - Race 2 No. 8 Sapphires Son

They're running out of options with this 10 start maiden runner if he can't get the breakthrough in what's a very weak line-up via the second from Tamworth this Friday.

Prepared by the Wyong stable of Tracey Bartley, Sapphires Son has some handy form lines from his last campaign with very competitive efforts around some useful gallopers including Free Rider and Rich And Shambles.

After finding the line fairly over 1100m fresh on July 11 (runner-up has since won from that) he did find a leader dominated affair here on July 24 when making some inroads from the back of the field.

Up to seven furlongs now third-up will suit Sapphires Son and versus opposition who have very little exposed form of note, he won't see a better chance to get on the board as the best bet at Tamworth.


Tamworth Value Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Ludivine

This mare hasn't had any luck in two runs so far this camapaign and arguably should've won second-up last time out at Dubbo.

Going around as our value bet on that July 17 program, Ludivine was very well supported on the day (opened around $15, started $6) but was shuffled back early and couldn't find the fast lane out wide in the straight when the sprint was on.

That performance followed a nice midfield finish fresh where she spotted them a monster start after drawing out and getting home from the rear over a journey that proved to be just a little slick.

With barrier two at her disposal and now with a fitness base there following a long spell, the onus is on jockey Mikayla Weir to be more positive early on Ludivine who with any further improvement, is well in the mix here.


Tamworth Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Skara Brae

She's very deep into her preparation which is the obviuus knock, however, she's done nothing but hold her form after a slow start to her career.

This daughter of Kuroshio was brilliant in putting together back-to-back victories in June which warranted a few Highway tilts in the city and she had no luck whatsoever in either of them attempts.

The horror gate cost her victory on July 4 at Randwick when rattling home for third and following that, she struck the notorius leader dominated Kensington circuit on July 18 in a run that had a stack of merit given how that track was playing.

Skara Brae finally draws a barrier here in two and with good speed engaged up front, she's well in this if that consistent trend continues.
