Bet of the day

Tue, 30 Sep 2014

This girl loomed up last start but her torrid run took its toll. It's a similarly awkward draw here but she looks a cut above her rivals.


Best Bet(s) - $60 Win All up
R1 No.11 - Three Queens$1.2*
If punters are looking for a genuine anchor on the program this girl looks the one. She has the poor draw for a reason and while she is lightly raced, she has shown some speed and toughness so expect her to work around them mid-race and be near on impossible to hold out late.
R3 No.8 - Purple Royale$2*
While she was probably a little unlucky the way things panned out last start, I doubt a similar draw can stop her this week. It's a relatively small field so provided she gets off the inside early, She should have a pretty handy class edge on her rivals tonight.
Best Value - $25 Each Way
R4 No.3 - Flaming Hero$5*
This looks a genuine race in two and while Jilliby Master is a progressive little horse, he showed over the weekend he still has a few steps to take. Flaming Hero is a tough and consistent little guy who should enjoy a nice run here and at the odds, he is definitely worth a punt.
Money Race(s)
R4 $48 worth of Flexi First Fours
As mentioned, this looks a genuine race in two however Xavier Jack (1) and The Noble Steed (4) have the early speed to be in prominent positions so along with the watch horse in Aqua Luvvy (7) we can anchor a couple of First Fours in a skinny race.
3,5/3,5/1,4,7/1,4,7. $36 gets 300%
3,5/1,4,7/3,5/1,4,7. $12 gets 100%
R7 $40 worth of Flexi Trifectas
Rate Highly (6) is in ripping form and even from the poor alley is close to another win while On Ice was a little roughly gaited but finished hard last start. They should dominate the race however the minor end looks wide open with Tres Hombres (1), Volatile Girl (3), Black Cougar (8) and Whats The Big Idea (9) all worth throwing into our Trifecta's here.
6,10/6,10/1,3,8,9. $24 gets 300%
6,10/1,3,8,9/6,10. $8 gets 100%
6,10/1,3,8,9/1,3,8,9. $8 gets 33.33%
Quaddie(s) - $100 worth of The Five-Pronged Quad
OctoQuaddie(s) - $100 worth of The Five-Pronged Quad
