Free Horse Racing Tips - 19th Jan
Tue 18th January 2022


We'll message you the best tips for today!

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, January 19th, and provided our best horse racing tips.

Very unusual not to have a Sydney metro meeting midweek but we head up the highway to Newcastle for a provincial stakes meeting which although looks a little thin, there does appear that there is money to be made.

Solid enough meetings in the other main states albeit on the inside track at Sandown and the Bundamba circuit of the Ipswich Turf Club.

We have made five selections in total and are very confident in four of those selections whilst we think our best roughie of the day represents excellent value at juicy double figure odds. So, read on below to find our best horse racing tips for this Wednesday, January 19. 

Ipswich, Race 1 – 3. Zasceed ($5.00)

Can only imagine they had a bigger target in mind for this colt but although circumstances might have conspired against them, we think the Mornington duo of Warren and Krongold can cover their travelling expenses here at Ipswich.

Always respect this pairing when they travel horses and they look to have found a winnable race here to kick off this son of Exceed and Excel’s career and pay the fuel bill back home.

He missed the kick in his only public trial and was not knocked around.

The engagement of the Gold Coast’s best rider, Noel Callow, for the trial is a fair lead in and the booking of Queensland’s finest, Jim Byrne for the first up assault tells you they are serious.

Big market watch but we anticipate there will be money for him.

Newcastle, Race 1 – 6. Hatsuko ($9.50/$2.70)

There’s ordinary maiden races, and then there’s this race.

Not a lot to go off but the one shining light in the form guide is this filly by Maurice from the Gavenlock yard.

At her only start her rider managed to end up three deep without cover from barrier four and not surprisingly she knocked up. Put away for six months and her recent trial over the 1000m was excellent. The time wasn’t outstanding but it was run late in the morning in driving rain on a deteriorating track.

She bounced straight to the front there and looked to be doing it easy before being challenged halfway down the straight where she found another gear to win the trial in good style.

Gets a good draw here and the services of one of the best front running riders in the business in Tim Clark.

Ridiculous price.

Newcastle, Race 2 – 7. Adulting ($1.90)

Short enough but should win this by attrition if nothing else as there is some very ordinary cattle in it.

She looks a hot sort of a mare, having plenty of lather around her breast plate on both occasions at her most recent trials. The first was at 900m and the second at 1030m. She found a couple of flat spots and switched off at times in both of those but showed plenty of fight down the running when asked the question.

She is by former middle distance star Contributer so the decision to go straight to 1250m looks the right one.

Not sure she will reach great heights, but I expect she is talented enough to cover this lot.

Sandown, Race 4 – 1. Green Belt ($2.20)

Meant business with the shades on, on debut and absolutely smoked them. Wanted the front from the time the gates opened and literally towed his rider there.

He was given one to keep his mind on the job down the running but was never in danger.

El Cordobes was also impressive on debut but nowhere near the scale of the Price and Kent trained colt. So even though there might be a few handy ones come out of this going forward, this fellow looks set for much better things than a midweek race on the inside track at Sandown.

Newcastle, Race 7 – 4. Rejoiced ($4.20)

*Horse has since been scratched.*

Dwelt, and absolutely had its ears scrubbed off to find the front from the outside draw when aiming for three in a row at Gosford at his latest outing.

Not surprisingly knocked up there when stepping out to the mile for the first time.

He’s a Redoute’s colt by a daughter out of Sunday Joy so you won’t find one much better bred than him in the country and he is handled by one of our best conditioners in Annabel Neasham.

The senior rider takes over here, he comes back in trip 100m, is hard fit and handles the heavy which is very likely by the last with an inch of rain forecast.

Can return to the winner’s stall if he isn’t over the top and hopefully send us out a winner on the day.

Best Bet – 1. Green Belt (Sandown, Race 4)
Next Best – 4. Rejoiced (Newcastle, Race 7)
Best Roughie – 6. Hatsuko (Newcastle, Race 1)
