Melbourne Racing Tips  – Saturday January 8, 2022

Saturday @ Caulfield:

Track: Soft 5/6. Rail: Out 3m.


3:45pm R6 #2 DARK DREAM
5:05pm R8 #9 IT’SOURTIME (Best)


Race 6: BM100 Handicap 2000M

DARK DREAM (2) looked the winner on the line last start in the Werribee Cup over 2000m after being slightly held up for a run but was just piped in the photo. An ex Hong Kong horse that might be thriving now in the open spaces at Lindsay Park. He is proven on soft ground has good stats at this distance and maps to stalk the leaders. Hasn’t won for 143 weeks but is a big chance of breaking the drought in this race.


CRIADERAS (1) was a gallant 2nd last start in the G3 Summer Cup over 2000m at Randwick. Not sure he quite ran out the 2000m there and he goes up in weight as well now. That said he is hard fit and with Ollie going aboard has to be respected. IN A TWINKLING (5) ran an ok 2nd behind HOLBEIN in the Listed Lord Stakes over 1700m last start, signaling that he may be ready for a big run. Proven on soft ground and a 2nd at the track read’s well but does rise a little in weight now.

Betting Approach:

(2) DARK DREAM: 0.5 units win @ $7.50

Race 8: BM84 Handicap 1100M

IT’SOURTIME (9) was just nutted on the line down the straight at Flemington straight last start in a BM84 after looking home at the 100 mark. Drawn soft to follow the speed here, is 2 from 2 at the distance and has placed twice from as many starts at the track, proven on soft ground and looks the one to beat.


SCORCHED EARTH (15) a 3 year old filly taking on open company here after an impressive win at Flemington down the straight over 1000m in a BM78 first start this prep. She has a Listed win over 1200m at The Valley on her ‘CV’ and Ollie sticks suggesting she may have upside. ZIPPING BOY (3) is a winner having won 6 from 11 starts and 4 from 5 at this distance. Sneaking up in the weights now and he may need one more run to be at his top but he looks the value runner at $23.

Betting Approach:

(9) IT’SOURTIME: 0.5 units win @ $3.70
