Free Harness Racing Tips Today For 18/10/2023

Harness racing tips incoming! Dabble’s very own Tim O'Connor has broken down the racing for this Wednesday. 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 Wednesday:

Best Bet - 1. Clives Girl ($2.90) - Melton, Race 5

Really fancy the chances of this girl, who finds a very winnable race for fillies and mares from a barrier that has proven good for her in the past.

Charlene Gusman's pacer has started from gate one three times in her career for a second placing in a heat of the Home Grown Classic, victory in the $50,000 final and a close-up third to subsequent Victoria Oaks champion Sweet Bella.

While comfortably beaten in recent times, she's been going well enough from bad gates against strong opposition, and I reckon star reinsman Nathan Jack can get her back to winning ways at Melton this evening.

Next Best - 3. Quiet Storm ($3.70) - Melton, Race 2

Haven't been able to find a lead-up trial for Xavier O'Connor's lightly-raced five-year-old, but his form from late last year looks sensational for this 1200m scamper.

Back in December 2022, Quiet Storm was beaten 12.4m by current free-for-all star Better Eclipse in a semi-final of the Vicbred Super Series and then ran a slashing fifth behind the very talented Yambukian in the Silver final a week later.

He performed well during a three-start preparation through June and July, and while unsure how he's going this time in, I'm more than happy to take a chance in this modest 50-59 rating event at a backable quote.

Value Bet - 5. Written Courage ($7.00 / $2.10) - Melton, Race 4

In a race with many winning chances, Written Courage looks to have come up a juicy price for a horse that performed so admirably in defeat last week.

Jim O'Sullivan's five-year-old gelding sat back in the field and came with race-fastest closing sections to cut ground off eventual winner Paris Abbie and runner-up Impulsive George in a strongly-run 1200m event at Melton.

At the same track and trip tonight, I'm confident Written Courage can figure in the finish at a nice price.
