Horse Racing Tips & Best Bets – Thursday 23rd April, 2020

Thursday will see a host of quality thoroughbred races with our focus being on the meetings at Newcastle in New South Wales. Take a look at our horse racing tips and best bets for Thursday 23rd April, 2020.

NEWCASTLE – RACE 3 2:25PM AEST

BEST BET: 6 Kirwan’s Lane – Bet Now: $2.30

Kirwan’s Lane has gone to another level this campaign and there is no reason that he can’t record another race win. He has won at Newcastle in the past and his last start effort at Wyong was strong. Tom Sherry in the saddle is a big positive and he maps to get a lovely run in transit. I’m surprised he isn’t a shorter-priced favourite.

NEWCASTLE – RACE 5 3:40PM AEST

BEST BET: 10 Pitjara – Bet Now: $3.30

The scratchings have really taken plenty of the quality out of this contest at Newcastle and that leaves Pitjara as the horse to beat. There was plenty to like about the way that she found the line at Gosford on debut and she should take benefit from that performance. She can record a maiden race win this afternoon.

NEWCASTLE – RACE 6 4:15PM AEST

BEST BET: 4 Big Bad Bruce – Bet Now: $5.50

Big Bad Bruce isn’t a noted winner, but he finds himself in a winnable contest at Newcastle this afternoon. He showed an outstanding turn-of-foot to claim a very impressive win at Newcastle last start and a repeat of that effort would make him tough to beat. Barrier five is ideal and he is well and truly over the odds at $6.

NEWCASTLE – RACE 7 4:50PM AEST

BEST BET: 4 Bombasay – Bet Now: $5.50

Bombasay was outclassed in qualifying races for the Provincial Championship and this is a far more suitable race for him. The Rothesay gelding has recorded three victories from his seven race starts and his record over this distance is excellent. He is good value to return to winning form this afternoon.
