Free Horse Racing Tips - 26th Mar
Fri 25th March 2022


We'll message you the best tips for today!

*Saturday 26th March: The rest of the race meeting has been abandoned. At this stage it is unknown where the remainder of the races will be rescheduled.*

*Sunday 27th March: It has been announced that the remaining races from the Rosehill meeting will be moved to Newcastle and take place on Monday 28th March.*

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Saturday, March 26, and provided our best horse racing tips. 

Mother Nature can be a cruel mistress as I’m sure the folks of Sydney need no reminding of as the forecast once again frowns upon a day of high quality racing.

The upside is that we’ve basically had nothing else but heavy tracks to bet on over the past six weeks, so the form should be really starting to stack up here. Some handle it, whilst others simply don’t go a yard in it, and whilst it is hard to see when they’ll get a break in the weather so they can show their best, we are parking them for another day and we are narrowing in on the mudlarks here,

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, March 26. 

Rosehill, Race 3 – 4. Mount Popa ($3.20) 

We took a punt last start and said ‘let’s give him one more’, and whilst it was a nervous watch, it proved the right move.

Whilst he is Sydney Cup bound, we are taking no chances on Saturday, third up, second go at 2000m and a track that will be to his liking.

At a loss to explain his failure to come up in the Spring but he couldn’t have been more impressive on this day last year when he demolished them in the Mornington Cup with that man, W Pike aboard.

One of the better bets of the day.

Newcastle, Race 3 – 10. Promise of Success ($6.00) 

She has been threatening to crack one of these for a while now and you have to think her form lines here read very much like Saturday might be the day.

She stays at 1500m, she gets through the ground, drawn to suit and at almost each way odds, she looks a solid bet.

Hard fit 4th up which is a big plus on yet another trying track and Kerrin McEvoy is back on board.

Today is her day.

Newcastle, Race 5 – 6. Angel of Truth ($19/$4.40) 

Enormous fan of the top and bottom weights, but this just doesn’t look like their race.

Think It Over is at his best on tracks a grade above what this is likely to be rated, and I think he’s just a touch too brilliant for a mile and half slog fest that’s going to be more like a two mile race. And that is certainly the case for Duais who is none from three on the heavy which appears to nullify her blistering turn of foot.

One such horse however that thrives under these types of conditions is Angel of Truth.

Last week was not his go in a tactical 2000m WFA race but he was very bold first up. It’s been a while between drinks, but he arguably should have won a Metrop in which he placed third at big odds when he was beaten by a half length with a rider a kilo over and G Boss making a mid race move to pester him before dropping out of contention.

His ATC Derby win was on ground far inferior to a Soft 7 for mine, and it was as tough an effort as you want to see and that is what it’s going to take here.

Best roughie of the day.

Newcastle, Race 6 – 6. Gypsy Goddess ($4.20) 

I’d suggest the only real knock here is the heavy track but she is a Tarzino and David Van Dyke does get his horses supremely fit, so I can’t see it being an issue.

If this girl was beating up on them as she worked through her grades with C Waller and J McDonald beside her name, she would be $1.80 here.

A peculiar first time interstate trainer/jockey combo but as anyone who knows their stuff will tell you, there are two of the best at what they do.

It’s not any easy race by any means, but with a dominant filly yet to really put her hand up, she arrives at the right time. 

Newcastle, Race 7 – 8. Quantico ($9.00/$2.90) 

I have little doubt he’s the best horse in the race but with such an interrupted preparation and being dealt the visitors draw on a track he’s got zero stats on, we are simply taking on trust and hoping for a J-Mac special here to get him home.

But something tells me, there will be a day when we are laughing that they bet double figure odds about this bloke against this quality of opposition.

Convinced he’s a Group 1 quality sprinter and prepared to forgive him for the first up run in the Newmarket which was a strange race.

He’s better than that, will be better for the run, and he returns back home and runs on a track he knows his way around.

No doubt he’s a risk, but fortune favours the brave and I just think on even terms he is a fair bit better than these.

Best Bet – 4. Mount Popa (Rosehill, Race 3)
Next Best – 10. Promise of Success (Rosehill, Race 5)
Best Roughie – 6. Angel of Truth (Rosehill, Race 7)
