We'll message you the best tips for today!
We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, February 2, and provided our best horse racing tips.
After a tough day on the punt Saturday navigating the tricky Moonee Valley circuit and trying to overcome a very summer looking leader bias track at Rosehill we are looking to bounce back with a few winners on the Wednesday card.
We haven’t been set an easy task with both inside tracks in play in Melbourne and Sydney whilst we head to Bundamba’s Ipswich Turf Club, the home town of newly crowned Aussie Open champ, Ash Barty, for the Brisbane metro meeting.
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 Wednesday, February 2.
Kensington, Race 1 – 3. Fielding ($6.00)
As a general rule, these types of races are like Vegemite on toast for Team Snowden who just eat them up for breakfast but we think we’ve found one to knock them off here at tasty odds.
Fielding trialled enormous prior to its debut but just had no luck when the rider was looking to cross to lead from a bad draw in a truly run race.
They’ve given ‘Digga’ McLellan a chance to atone here and whilst he is drawn a little sticky again, there doesn’t appear to be any real pace on paper so we expect him to cross and settle in the first pair and be very hard to hold out.
Ipswich, Race 1 – 12. Canadian Dancer ($2.00)
She’s been beaten as favourite her two starts to date but this looks like the race she can turn things around with and go on from.
The draw beat her first up, then the rider took some poor options at key stages in her most recent start.
She could not have trialled any better at Deagon leading into this, she gets the services of Ben Thompson and from a good draw.
Very hard to beat.
Kensington, Race 2 – 2. Himalism ($3.50)
Along with the punters, we were quite keen on this impeccably bred colt on debut.
They went at a breakneck speed early in that race which left him scrambling to find his feet early before knuckling down again and finding the line late.
He was put away after that and has trialled since, ridden along late in the 743m trial but again closing solidly.
As expected he finds a solid midweek 2YO maiden but we think at the 1100m and with the race experience he will be overpowering them late.
Ipswich, Race 5 – 6. Harlequin Field ($3.30)
He saluted for our followers last start, first time with the blinkers on, under a strong ride from Nash Rawiller.

With Nash back in Sydney, Matt Dunn has made smart use here of promising claiming apprentice Kyle Wilson-Taylor where we expect similar tactics will be adopted with just the 53.5kg on his back after the allowance.
There only looks to be one speed horse drawn inside him and that horse is stepping to the 1350m from 1200m off a five week let up.
We expect this Deep Field gelding to either lead or sit outside the lead and be very hard to run down.
Sandown, Race 8 – 2. Safe Passage ($6.00)
Ex-Kiwi mare who was starting to put her wins together when they thought enough of her last time in to give her a crack at some black type.
Boxed on gamely to only be beaten 2L to Yes Baby Yes in the Armanasco and then had probably come to the end of prep when she ran last in the Kewney.
Failed badly first up last time in and tipped straight out. Whatever the issue was there, she looks to have overcome it, bouncing to the front and winning a trial under her own steam at Geelong recently.
Damian Lane stays on board after that promising showing and if she has recaptured her best, she will be very tough to beat.
Best Bet – 3. Fielding (Kensington, Race 1)
Next Best – 12. Canadian Dancer (Ipswich, Race 1)
Best Roughie – 2. Safe Passage (Sandown, Race 8)
