Harness racing tips incoming! Dabble’s very own Tim O'Connor has broken down the racing for this Saturday. Searching high and low, they’ve found our loyal Dabblers the top three harness racing bets of the day. They’ve done all the hard work for you finding the best harness racing tips, so you don’t even have to lift a finger – how nice is that?!
Without further ado, see Tim O'Connor's best bet, next best and value bet from around the grounds this Saturday:
Best Bet - 6. Mach Dan ($2.30) - Melton, Race 7
Great to have this bloke back at the races and I think he'll make a winning start to the campaign.
His last preparation was a beauty with wins in the Geelong Pacing Cup, two Inter Dominion heats and the Newcastle Mile, and he's ready to go first-up after two recent trial victories.
There are plans for Mach Dan to head to Queensland for the winter carnival after this run and there's no doubt the Emma Stewart stable would love to send him off on a winning note.
He meets a quality field of rivals in the night's free-for-all contest, but he's clearly the established class runner and should be able to get the job done for us at better than even money.
Next Best - 9. We Bettor Believe It ($4.40) - Melton, Race 2
While it's a tough card to nail down best bets with confidence, I think Mattie Craven's Kiwi import We Bettor Believe It will go very close in the first of two 1200m sprints on the Melton card.
I'm worried he will likely have to come from well back in the field to score, but he's got a brilliant turn of foot that is well and truly capable of getting him over the top of this field should things fall his way.
The seven-year-old showed this devastating dash two starts ago when he came from a hopeless position at the turn to run second in a strong race at Melton and backed it up with another good effort for third in a 1200m event on May 27.
He's been freshened since then and heads into this event representing good value.
Value Bet - 1. Solesseo Matuca ($18) - Melton, Race 6
Damien Burns' four-year-old gelding hasn't won for some time – not since back in December 2021 in fact – but I think he's a sneaky hope of surprising at nice odds in the Alabar Vicbred Pace.
Wind the clock back to that last success 550-odd days ago and he defeated tonight's favourite Hes Charlies Angel in a semi-final of the Vicbred Super Series.
And while his recent form suggests he's going nowhere near as well as he was back in late 2021, I was encouraged by the effort at Melton last time out and love the fact that he draws for a soft run down on the pegs this Saturday night.
He's certainly no moral, but I think we should be having something on the each-way at a juicy price.
