RACING HQ in Victoria is back hosting racing this Saturday.
There’s an action-packed nine races headlined by the Listed Kensington Stakes (1000m), and we cannot wait for what the day will bring.
Let’s take a look at which horses we’re taking.

We’re big fans of what Portion Control brings to the race track. The Hayes, Hayes and Daberning runner always gives 100 percent in its racing and the last-start third was encouraging. We’re suggesting a place play to kick off the day.
Race 1 tip: Portion Control to place ($2.90 at Crownbet)
Last Week is an ultra-consistent runner which is always a winning chance. The horse snapped a sequence of seconds two-starts back in spectacular fashion before just missing out on New Years Day behind stablemate Civil Disobedience. The horse steps up in journey, but gets a huge weight relief.
Our selection in the previous race was smashed by our pick for race three Civil Disobedience, and we believe it will record a third-straight win here. The horse steps up significantly in weights, but we think it’ll handle it nicely.
So Splendid has been desperately unlucky in its last two runs and connections would be entitled to feel robbed. The horse was pipped by Addision on Boxing Day before missing out by a head behind Shenandoah two weeks ago. So Splendid confronts both horses in this race, but gets a 3kg relief on both rivals.
