Free Horse Racing Tips - 11th Feb
Fri 10th February 2023


We'll message you the best tips for today!

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Saturday, February 11, and provided our best horse racing tips.

Will the Blue Diamond winner please stand up!

That’s a statement, not a question, and one made with great exclamation, as it has certainly been a very lacklustre season of 2YO racing thus far.

But Blue Diamond Prelude day is certainly ‘moving day’, if there is going to be one at all, and it would shock few if any at all to find out that the Godolphin team hold the strongest hand here.

Our best of the day is currently on the top line for that feature, due in a fortnight, but we are also suggesting a sneaky pre-post play at odds on another colt that is also featuring in our selections this week.

High quality racing in both Sydney and Melbourne with stakes racing galore at Randwick and Sandown. We’ve focused on those two meetings as well as highlighting a very promising filly at Newcastle who may not be out of place at those types of meetings herself shortly.

We have made five selections in total and are confident that we have found you some winners! So, read on below to find our best horse racing tips for this Saturday, February 11.

Sandown, Race 3 – 1. Barber ($3.20)

Give us something, please. For a season that as we alluded to earlier has been pretty bland so far.

On the score of his Golden Gift win however, this Exceed and Excel colt does have a bit of star quality about him.

An absolute gun ride from Bowman won that race, but it required a good horse underneath him to be able to do what he did.

Seems to have ironed out the bombing the start issue with a couple of really good trials and has produced a few pieces of really nice work in between from all reports.

These races are always a lottery, and I’m eagerly anticipating the re-appearance of this horse’s stablemate Cylinder, in a trial on Monday. Little Brose knocked him off in the Maribyrnong Plate albeit with a genuine excuse for Cylinder’s defeat. 

I think the Hayes runner looms as the main danger in this race in front of the WA visitor Brave Halo. But I think the Godolphin runner is a class above.

Barber would need to win this in dominant fashion to justify his price in the Diamond, and I’m expecting that to be the case.

Randwick, Race 6 – 2. Mexico ($18/$5.00)

Back to the trials after a barrier mishap last week.

I’m fairly certain he would have got the money there, and although this is considerably tougher, I see no reason to jump off.

In fact, I’m more positive about his ability to run out a strong 1100m on what we saw in his latest heat and certainly think he is looming as a dark horse for a race like the Blue Diamond which really needs something to stick its hand up this week as it appears a skinny race on what we’ve seen so far.

Speedy enough to cross and lead this, but has shown he has enough racing manners to be able to camp off them, and has won a trial producing a 32.27 final section. With a horse by the name of Barber in behind him.

Back him here, and have a small speculator at big odds in the Blue Diamond.

Sandown, Race 6 – 11. Semillion ($41/$7.50)

Any old price on offer about this colt.

Resumed as a 3YO well in the market ($4.80) in a race that featured Giga Kick ($4.00). He was disappointing there, along with his other two runs in the Spring but he wouldn’t be the first horse to not come up at early 3YO after a tough 2YO year.

He’s had a good break, they’ve left him an entire which suggests he has lost none of his ability, and his two trials leading into this were very strong.

Jye McNeil partners back up here who has a good history with the horse, who it is worth remembering was less than a length behind Jacquinot in the Blue Diamond this time last year.

Race looks wide open outside of the QLD raider. You are going to have to be smart to beat him but he can play a part here at huge odds.

Sandown, Race 7 – 10. Jacquinot ($3.30)

Finding it very hard to split my two favourite horses here but I have to lean toward the colt with the run under his belt as opposed to the 5YO gelding with bigger fish to fry down the track.

It was an awesome win by the son of Rubick first up in the Manfred Stakes when conceding weight to the other 3YO’s. And it was no coincidence the stable elected to kick off their campaign by giving him a look at the roomy Sandown circuit where the CF Orr Stakes is being run this year.

He possesses a lethal turn of foot, possibly only rivalled by I’m Thunderstruck or his arch rival Anamoe.

It looks like this will be run at a good tempo, which sets it up for something rattling home late, and the #1 plus the #10 are in a class of their own in this department.

Happy to go with the 4YO with the weight pull and the run under his belt. For now.

Newcastle, Race 7 – 9. Announcing ($7.50/$2.65)

This 3YO Press Statement filly is having just her second start but she does look above average.

Did a fair bit wrong on debut, but never looked as though she was going to get beat.

Stays at the 1200m and gets a bigger track here.

Looks the ideal progression for her.
