We'll message you the best tips for today!
We have studied the form from all races across the country for Saturday, May 14, and provided our best horse racing tips.
The Doomben 10,000 at Eagle Farm? Saturday Sydney Metropolitan racing at Scone? And Melbourne our only dry track on the Eastern seaboard just a fortnight out from Winter?
Once you process all that you’ll see we still have a bumper card of black type racing albeit at slightly unusual venues, but there’s plenty of great punting action to be had and of course plenty of winners to be found.
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, May 14.
Eagle Farm, Race 4 – 7. Arentee ($12/$3.40)
Has to be worth an each way ticket at double figure odds.
Made the leap from maiden grade to class 3 last start which few can do, and now tackles 3YO Open company here at set weights but his two wins this time in have been ultra impressive.
Yet to see wet ground but he is out of an O’Reilly mare and he has loads of talent.
A strong field and a really tough test but I’d be surprised if he isn’t highly competitive provided he handles the track.
Scone, Race 9 – 18. Andermatt ($2.05)
*This horse has since been scratched.*
He has been a revelation since having the ultimate gear change.
Has always been loaded with ability, and now we are really starting to see the best of him.
Expect they’ll run along here in the big field and McEvoy should be able to slot in a few pairs back off a solid tempo. He is going to have to have come on again since his last win to breakthrough in stakes grade, but there is nothing here that he hasn’t been able to compete with in the best, and he appears a superior horse these days since being gelded.
Smart sprinter on the way up.
Eagle Farm, Race 8 – 9. Mazu ($3.10)
Found it hard to split Mazu and Count De Rupee here but ultimately I was swayed by the weather forecast with torrential rain forecast through Friday and ordinary conditions again on race day.
Mazu has been locked in for The Everest for the next TWO years.
The gelding is currently the $2.80 favourite to take out the Doomben 10,000 this weekend.

Mazu was the boom horse through the Sydney carnival and provided he has taken no harm from ploughing through those bottomless tracks during the Autumn, there’s no reason to think he will go bust here.
His recent trial would certainly suggest he is still on his game. Not that keen on Clipperton in a big Group 1, but if nothing else, he is due. And this bloke is a push button ride.
Looks his race.
Morphettville, Race 8 – 6. Detonator Jack ($4.20)
He’s been very good to us so far so we are sticking here.
Alegron clearly the horse he needs to beat and we are banking on him being a shade off his best after an ATC Derby and a VRC St Leger run this campaign.
Detonator Jack was explosive on debut, before winning comfortably second up over subsequent Sydney metro winner in Hameron. Struck some trouble down the running his latest start before rattling off a smart section late to win running away from them.
The 2500m will pose no problem. Bred to stay all day and possesses the rare quality in that type of breed of a sharp turn of foot.
I think he can win this, and put himself in the picture for some Spring features.
Flemington, Race 9 – 1. Dosh ($4.00)
Smart filly from the firing Begg yard who looks primed for a first up win here.
Carries the top weight against the older horses here but still looks well in once you factor in the claim. She’s a winner at the Flemington 1000m and flew in her latest trial.
Certainly going to give them something to chase, and hopefully she can send punters out on the right note.
Best Bet – 9. Mazu (Eagle Farm, Race 8)
Next Best – 6. Detonator Jack (Morphettville, Race 8)
Best Roughie – 7. Arentee (Eagle Farm, Race 4)
