Australian Racing: Tricky Beans expected to deliver

There are four meetings set to take place on Tuesday with wet tracks expected at all four of them.

Race 5 Mackay

Tricky Beans @ 4.20

Race 3 Bendigo

Tojaki @ 4.80

Race 2 Armidale

Rasay Factor @ 2.80

Beans to upset favourite at Mackay

Thisland Is Myland looks likely to start a short-priced favourite for the fifth race at Mackay.

The race in question is a 1300m Class 4 handicap contest with a soft 4 surface expected with the scratching of Bold Zip leaving a field of nine to go to post.

Trained by Graeme Green, Thisland Is Myland made an impressive return to action when putting five-and-a-half-lengths between himself and his rivals over 1050m at Rockhampton in January.

That victory came at Restricted 58 level and he has since performed well in finishing runner-up on both subsequent starts.

That latest Rockhampton triumph came on a soft 6 track and, while likely to go well again, TRICKY BEANS is preferred in this contest.

The selection won twice on soft surfaces last spell including by nearly two lengths in a Benchmark 60 event over 1600m at Rockhampton in May last year.

The four-year-old delivered some respectable efforts subsequently and showed fair form when beaten just over four lengths in the Capricornia Classic at Rockhampton first up this time around.

That Rockhampton effort came on a good 4 track over 1300m at the start of this month.

This looks a much easier contest and having won when racing second up in both previous spells the son of Spill The Beans is taken to register career win number four.

Tojaki to break maiden

The third at Bendigo is an interesting 1300m maiden plate contest.

A soft 6 surface is forecast for the race, with Thermodynamic’s absence leaving a field of 15 to go to post.

Blue Chip Girl has placed second on two of her three starts for the Matt Laurie stable and is expected to have her supporters here.

However preference is for TOJAKI who finished runner-up on her only start to date for the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace team.

That effort came when losing out narrowly to a more experienced rival in an 1107m maiden event held on a good 4 track at Kilmore in February.

The pick tried to make all the running that day but was ultimately pegged back by the winner Oasis Gold.

Tojaki jumped as favourite for that Kilmore contest and while the form of that event could be working out better she is expected to have improved for the experience.

Returning from a let-up and with a fair barrier seven off the rail the daughter of Zoustar is selected to break her maiden at the second attempt.

Factor for Armidale success

The top three in the weights have all been scratched ahead of the second at Armidale, a 1900m Benchmark 58 contest.

A field of 12 are now due to go to post for the race with a heavy 8 surface expected.

RASAY FACTOR is selected to deliver a third career success having delivered some solid efforts this spell.

The most recent of those came when beaten just under two lengths into fifth in a similar race to this over course and distance on a soft 7 track March 26.

The pick delivered an eye-catching effort having raced from off the pace on that occasion shaping as if a victory wasn’t far away.

The four-year-old is the winner of his only previous start on a heavy track and, while he has drawn a wide alley here, his tactical versatility should help him overcome any issues that that may lead to.
