2019 Golden Gift Tips & Best Bets

The Golden Gift is a brand-new race on the Racing NSW schedule and it’s an intriguing contest.

To keep in the line with other “Golden” races, such as the Golden Slipper and Golden Eagle, the Golden Gift gives punters a look at this year’s top juveniles.

We’re excited to see what this race will bring and all the big stables are out in force.

Tanker heads the market after an impressive debut win, but can anything beat the colt?

2019 Golden Gift Best Bet – Tanker @ $3.00

There are quite a few debutantes in this race so having race experience is ideal. Tanker has race-winning experience when scoring with style on debut.

The Maher/Eustace-trained two-year-old scored emphatically by 2.3 lengths when making up good ground in the straight.

Winning at Caulfield is never easy to do and he has already shown a liking for going the other way around.

He scored a trial win at Randwick to prepare for this and that’s a good sign. It shows he can right-handed.

Punters are getting solid odds of $3.10 and those should be taken.

2019 Golden Gift Best Value – Blaze A Trail @ $6.00

It’s never easy to win a race like this as a debutante, but Blaze A Trail could do exactly that for the Peter and Paul Snowden stable.

The colt by Criterion has looked impressive at the trials when scoring by 6.5 lengths at Randwick. He then followed that up with a one-length trial win at Rosehill.

That’s going to be good form for this race and if Tim Clark can find a forward position during the run, expect him to be right there in the finish.

His chances will be determined at the start but he’s worth the risk at the each-way odds.

2019 Golden Gift Best Roughie – Vucetich @ 9.00

It’s tough to overlook a James Cummings-trained juvenile, so we’re not going to do that.

Vucetich ran second behind top pick Tanker at the trials and that’s a good preparation to have for this run.

There isn’t much known about him, but his breeding speaks volumes. He’s a son of Lonhro x. Forensics, and that’s some breeding to have.

He has been respected in the betting and he’s a must-have on the Golden Gift ticket.
