Free Horse Racing Tips - 3rd May
Tue 2nd May 2023


We'll message you the best tips for today!

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, May 3, and provided our best horse racing tips.

The first Wednesday meeting of the metropolitan calendar for the month of May, which means it is also Day 2 of the Warrnambool carnival.

Good luck to all the punters taking on the 3 day challenge and the elements down there. My only advice to you is, make sure you’re the one carrying the motel key because you’re a big chance of dying from frostbite if you get locked out of your room!

If you do happen to wake up on a doorstep in the early hours of Day 2 and are minus a few digits, you can take solace in the fact that we’ll get you back on your feet with our best of the day in Race 1. Along with that we’ve got selections at Eagle Farm, Canterbury and Murray Bridge and the confidence is high after finding three from five across the country on Saturday.

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, May 3.

Warrnambool, Race 1 – 1. Debating ($3.00)

Always a nightmare trying to get to a line on these Melbourne 2YO’s off foggy jump out footage that looks like it’s been filmed on the iPhone of someone in desperate need of a drink, but we find one here in the first on Day 2 of the time honoured Warrnambool carnival with franked stakes grade form.

Gutsy run on debut when three deep no cover throughout, boxing on gamely to hold down third.

The pair that quinella’d that race came out and ran a good 2nd and 3rd to the very smart Treasurway in a G3 race on Saturday in Adelaide.

The unraced mob would need to be pretty handy to be beating him.

Eagle Farm, Race 4 – 5. Dark Chill ($4.80)

He took a while, but he repaid our faith in him with a strong win last start.

That was over 1660m, and he used up every metre of the mile before really looking the goods the last 50m, actually easing on the line for a comfortable win.

The move to the bigger expanse of Eagle Farm suits, so too the step out to 1800m. He’s bred for this, and further. No doubt heading towards the QLD Derby if he can put the likes of Hokkaido away here who comes through the strong form race, the South Pacific Classic.

Ready to go to the next level.

Canterbury, Race 3 – 3. Prefer The Wink ($6.00/$1.95)

It looks as though this will be run at a good tempo with a couple of on-pacers in the field and the engagement of Tim Clark on Lalaguna.

There are certainly no superstars in this bunch, but looking through the unraced brigade, the Preferment gelding from the Matt Smith yard does look like he’ll mature into a nice galloper at some point.

No doubt his best will be over further given his pedigree and being a big gangly gross cut of a horse, but I really liked the way he lengthened out on the all weather track over the final stages in his first trial. And then he jumped, led them up in his most recent effort and went to the line under his own steam with the Group 1 winning stayer, Warning being urged along to just nail him late.

Don’t think he’ll lead this, but might just get a nice trail in behind them and get those long legs in sync in the straight and prove a bit better than these.

Stick with him whatever he does here.

Canterbury, Race 5 – 12. Great Barrier Reef ($4.60/$1.90)

Handy type who has contested much harder races than this.

Had a heap of racing in just his 2nd preparation so nice to see him have an extended spell.

Stepped out of a maiden win straight into the Group 2 Danehill Stakes where he ran into Giga Kick and Buenos Noches only beaten 3.5L. Backed that up with a good 4th behind Serjadan before contesting the Group 1 Coolmore Sprint for 3YO’s.

Well beaten there but the fact they thought enough of him to contest it tells you he at least has something above average to offer.

His form tapered off after that and I’d be inclined to just forget those runs.

Even effort in a strong trial first up, then doing some nice work late in his latest effort.

McDonald takes the ride here from a good draw. He’s good enough to account for these now he has fresh legs again.

Murray Bridge, Race 8 – 4. Platinum Wolf ($3.20)

Sparingly raced 4YO who is building a nice record.

Three starts to date for two wins and an unlucky third.

He drew bad, and was deep throughout before making a withering run late.

The winner of that race has won again since whilst the runner up placed behind the smart My Khalifa in a stakes race when backing up 7 days later.

The 1400m looks ideal. Promising type.
