We're heading into a double-headed Wednesday as is customary and tonight's Bendigo program looks almost as enticing as Melton in the day. For that reason we are going to drill down on a couple of best bets along with a roughie with a real winning chance, a money race and some pretty skinny Quaddies.

The Moral

Race 6 - No.10 Time Capsule

This fella is really talented customer who has been beating up on his rivals this preparation & even from the second row tonight, he looks to have a class edge.


Best Bet(s) - $35 win
R2 No.2 - Goodtime Rusty$1.5*
I loved this guys run last start when he was reeled in by the ultra-smart Justbritell and held the rest of the field comfortably. He has the speed to hold up here and although he has't won in 14 starts, he's much better than that and this looks the perfect chance for him to break his duck.
R3 No.7 - Mosquito Spur$3*
Don't be fooled by this mare mixing Monte and Sulky racing of recent times, she's low-flying in both forms, running a close second to Si Capisco under saddle most recently as well as a solid third to Illawong Moonshine with the cart two starts ago so with her brilliant gate speed, she'll likely be in front early and tough to run down.
Best Roughie(s) - $5 win x $25 place
R7 No.8 - Rogue Assassin$14*
This looks one of the better bets of the day because it's almost certain Vox Populi will hold his rivals early and give our guy the beautiful run through into the box seat. He is a devilish sit-sprinter at his best who has conditions to suit here and don't be fooled either by his figure form because he had no luck last start and was close to the mark prior to that.
Money Race(s)
R7 $50 worth of Flexi Trifectas
Vox Populi (1) is no doubt the class of the race with the ideal draw but Im The Boss (7) and Rogue Assassin (8) will be nipping at his heels so we'll play some skinny trifectas with Grins Rendition (4), Copper Coast (11) and Attack On Command (12) the wider savers.
