Horse Racing Tips & Best Bets – Friday 22nd May, 2020

Friday will see a host of quality thoroughbred races across the country with our focus being on the meeting at Gold Coast in Queensland. Take a look at our horse racing tips and best bets for Friday 22nd May, 2020.

Gold Coast – Race 2 12:17PM AEST

BEST BET: No. 1 The Drinks Cart – Bet Now: $1.75

The Drinks Cart is deserving of his status as a short-priced favourite in this contest at the Gold Coast this afternoon.

He finished third behind the talented Wisdom Of Water in the Aquis Gold Nugget in January and he returned to the races with a dominant win over 900 metres.

He does have to handle the step-up in trip, but on exposed form he does have a clear class edge over the rest of this field.

Gold Coast – Race 5 2:04PM AEST

No. 1 The Kingdom – Bet Now: $3.90

The Kingdom finished his last campaign with four straight wins and there is no reason that he can’t make a winning return to the races.

He generally improves the further that he gets into his campaign, but he has trialed nicely ahead of his return to the races and I am confident that he has more upside than the rest of this field.

The $6 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Gold Coast – Race 8 3:57PM AEST

No. 1 Devil’s Temptation – Bet Now: $6.00

Devil’s Temptation failed to fire at the Gold Coast last start, but he is a much better horse than that effort suggests.

He has won over the 900 metres course at the Gold Coast in the past and he has the speed to take up the running from the wide barrier draw.

He will give his rivals something to catch and appeals at his current price of $6.50.

Gold Coast – Race 9 4:34PM AEST

No. 2 Wapiti – Bet Now: $2.70

Wapiti doesn’t have a great overall winning record, but he has an excellent chance to return to winning form this afternoon.

He has been racing well without winning during this campaign and this is probably the weakest field that he has contested.

Barrier one is ideal for him and he will have every possible chance in the run.
