Race 3

The third contest of the day here at Hawkesbury promises to be an excellent one, with a strong selection of 3-year-olds all chasing glory in this Handicap contest. Ran over 1500m, this should be a good test for all in the field and with some of the biggest trainers in the business looking to get involved here, there is plenty to work with for both punters and Aussie bookmakers

With the trip in this one at Hawkesbury coming in at just under a mile, getting the right speed from the outset will be the principle aim for every jockey, with plenty of horses in this field lacking experience. 

One of the selections that lacks experience but could have star quality is Gentileschi, a lightly raced 3-year-old, who has won its last 2 starts and who has impressed hugely in the process. Leading jockey James McDonald wants a piece of the action and is lined up to ride Gentileschi here and it certainly looks to be the one to beat at $2.25 with Playup

Hoping to cash in on a misread by punters and experts in the form of Gentileschi is Bandasha, a horse of the same age who has more miles in the legs but has produced some really good performances in its fledgling career so far. Jockey Nash Rawiller looks a good fit here and Bandasha could be one to keep an eye on for those chasing value at $4.80 with Bet365

The odds do lengthen from there on but the likes of Zelgaria and Cable Express both have decent wins on their copy book and with such inexperience in the field all round, they could both be in with more than a shout at $9.50 and $10.00 respectively with Punterspal.  

Race 7

The Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas is one of the showcase races on a busy day of action on Saturday and with a quarter of a million dollars up for grabs, there is plenty to get on board with for both old and new betting sites alike. Some excellent horses assemble here at Hawkesbury too and the 1400m trip looks to be the ideal distance for many lined up. 
Hawkesbury Guineas 

This looks to be a very strong race here at Hawkesbury, with some fascinating narratives unfolding around plenty of horses in the field and, he drama looks to be guaranteed for both punters and Aussie bookmakers from the outset. 

The horse that looks to be a cut above in the betting is Schwarz, a proven performer at this level who is looking to kick on and challenge in Group 1 and 2 contests in the not-too-distant future. Obviously, connections are taking things one race at a time, but Schwarz is the justified favourite here at $3.00 with Punterspal.  

Only a couple of other horses can be backed at a single figure price here and one of them is Panic, with the Kiwi flyer looking to have the credentials to at least challenge Schwarz here. It could be a tall order but Panic certainly represents value at $9.50 with Playup

Elsewhere, value can be found across the field and if the likes of Butch Cassidy and Konasana get a good run, the could be worth a look at $7.00 apiece with Bet365

Race 9

The second-to-last contest of the day here at Hawkesbury promises to be another intriguing one, with a whole host of big names chasing wins once again. As a class 88 handicap, not too much would be expected of a race such as this generally but the calibre of horse and trainer in the field speaks for itself.  
The Lawn Shed 

A truly eclectic mix of horses line up here at Hawkesbury and with so many different stories set to unfold in the Lawn Shed in race 9, picking a winner of the 1400m contest is not an easy task at all. 

Topping the betting is Kibou, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained selection who hasn’t been hugely impressive in its fledgling career so far. However, with 4 wins from 9 career starts, Kibou does know how to get the job done and just looks to be a horse that needs a confidence boosting win once again. This looks to be the idea level of trip for Kibou and having been out of action for 30 weeks, it could come back refreshed and ready at $4.00 with Bet365

Quality operators line up in behind, with Fall For Cindy next in the betting, a Kiwi horse that continues to put in solid performances for trainer John O’Shea. Whether she can overcome this busy field remains to be seen but Fall For Cindy certainly represents value at $6.00 with Playup

Two really good horses in Snowman and Brigantine certainly have chances here and with a congested field, they could both force their way into contention here at $6.50 and $10.00 respectively with Punterspal.
