Blake Redden's Preview for Bendigo

Wed, 21 Feb 2018

With just one best bet and a money race along with the usual Early and Normal Quaddies, it's fair to say we're playing a little light on in terms of today's Game Plan. That's sometimes required though and while the meeting will hold plenty of intrigue and some very nice horses, i couldn't find much else worth getting too involved with.

Track information

TOP 5
Circumference: 1000m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Emma Stewart, Leading Driver: Chris Alford


The Moral

Race 9 - No.1 Rockin Shiraz

This mare went a terrific race when resuming and this looks even more suitable from the inside alley.

Take On

Race 2 - No.2 Sounds Of Terror

I've got time for this pacer and she's likely to lead early but i was surprised to see she is likely to come up favourite.




Blake Redden Tips - All Races

R1

BET NOW
Selections RETURN SOLDIER (10), DIAMOND GRACE (11), MISS ATLANTA (5), SECOND HANDS (4).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 5,10,11/4,5,8,9,10,11/4,5,8,9,10,11 for $20 gets 33.33%
OVERVIEW: RETURN SOLDIER (10) hasn’t had a lot of continuity of racing but has won four from 13 and while the market will be the best guide, he rates on top here. DIAMOND GRACE (11) is worth forgiving for the second-up run and if you go on the effort prior she’s right in this. MISS ATLANTA (5) and SECOND HANDS (4) are the best chances from the front row but TIMMYS REJECT (8) was a good winner last time and goes into wider Early Quaddies along with IM TOOT (9) and OFF THE RADAR (7).

EARLY SPEED:  4 (Potential leader) + 3,5,7

RATINGS: 10/ 11/ 5/ 4/ 8/ 9/ 7/ 3/ 6/ 1.

R2

BET NOW
Selections ANGEL OF ARTS (4), TRINITY DREAMING (10), SHEZA BEACH DREAM (8), SOUNDS OF TERROR (2).
Suggested Bet ANGEL OF ARTS (4) To Win.
OVERVIEW: ANGEL OF ARTS (4) is unlikely to be a maiden for much longer given she’s run into some most talented fillies in her nine starts and this looms the right race for her to breakthrough in. TRINITY DREAMING (10) will likely be better for her first racing prep and while the draw hurts, she is still a winning chance. SHEZA BEACH DREAM (8) will need luck but is in the mix while SOUNDS OF TERROR (2) is the other strong hope with CUTMEARINHALF (6) having the unknown factor and ALL MAJOR (9) next best.

EARLY SPEED:  2 (Potential leader) + 1,4

RATINGS: 4/ 10/ 8/ 2/ 6/ 9/ 1/ 3/ 5/ 7.

R3

BET NOW
Selections JEANS MATTJESTY (12), OUR TRIPLE ASSET (8), OLLIE AND BROCK (9), HEATHBERN ELIMAY (4).
Suggested Bet JEANS MATTJESTY (12) To Win.
OVERVIEW: JEANS MATTJESTY (12) looks incredibly well placed based on both what we’ve seen of him in Victoria in the past and also his last start win in Tasmania. OUR TRIPLE ASSET (8) is likely the clearest threat but he’ll need luck early. Value players can consider both OLLIE AND BROCK (9) and HEATHBERN ELIMAY (4) too.

EARLY SPEED:  1 (Potential leader) + 4,6

RATINGS: 12/ 8/ 9/ 4/ 10/ 1/ 6/ 3/ 2/ 5.

R4

BET NOW
Selections RAPID RUN (7), MONTEREI DUKE (8), ELIZABETHAN ERA (1), SEWPLAYFUL (3).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 7/8/1,3 for $20 gets 1000%.
OVERVIEW: RAPID RUN (7) is well bred and finds an eminently easier race than his first couple of midfield efforts. He can settle almost anywhere here and be too strong. MONTEREI DUKE (8) is arguably the only threat on exposed form while ELIZABETHAN ERA (1) can improve and SEWPLAYFUL (3) is the other for trifectas.

EARLY SPEED:  1 (Potential leader) + 3,7

RATINGS: 7/ 8/ 1/ 3/ 4/ 5/ 2/ 6.

R5

BET NOW
Selections RED HOT TOOTH (9), HEY YO (5), HEAVENLY SISTER (8), GLENFERRIE BURN (10).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 5,9/5,8,9,10/5,8,9,10 for $20 gets 167%.
OVERVIEW: RED HOT TOOTH (9) is pretty hard to line-up given everything went wrong in the Great Southern Star but she’s been freshened up and at her best she’s the best mare in the country. HEY YO (5) can probably lay claims to being the second best right here and now and she does have the front row draw but this is a field full off class so don’t  be totally shocked to see any of HEAVENLY SISTER (8), GLENFERRIE BURN (10), NIETA (1) or even ALDEBARAN AY M (2) bob up at odds.

EARLY SPEED:  1 (Potential leader, hand-up?) + 2,3,5

RATINGS: 9/ 5/ 8/ 10/ 1/ 2/ 6/ 11/ 3/ 7.

R6

BET NOW
Selections POCKET THEDEAL (1), KEAYANG DA VINCI (7), CELESTIAL TREKKER (8), BEACH GARDEN (10).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 1,7/1,7,8/1,7,8,10 for $20 gets 250%.
OVERVIEW: POCKET THEDEAL (1) led and was a most cruisy winner in town last time so with the ace alley, he gets his chance to make it two on the bounce. KEAYANG DA VINCI (7) could very well come out and blow them away but he does have a few things against him here. CELESTIAL TREKKER (8) has plenty of upside while BEACH GARDEN (10) probably had her chance last time but is always around the mark.

EARLY SPEED:  1 (Likely leader) + 2,3,7?

RATINGS: 1/ 7/ 8/ 10/ 4/ 9/ 3/ 2/ 5/ 6.

R7

BET NOW
Selections IMA BOURBON GIRL (2), PARISIAN AMORE (6), COURCHEVEL (8), ALDEBARAN EVE (11).
Suggested Bet Flexi Boxed Trifecta 2,6,8,11 for $20 gets 83.33%.
OVERVIEW: IMA BOURBON GIRL (2) returned a most impressive winner a fortnight ago so she gets her chance to win again but her trio of stablemates could all win on their days so it will likely be manners and position in running that separates all of PARISIAN AMORE (6), COURCHEVEL (8) and ALDEBARAN EVE (11).  MISS INTENSE (4) is in the zone right now and a sneaky blowout hope while ATHENRY (10) is the other for wider bet types.

EARLY SPEED:  2 (Potential leader, hand-up?) + 6 + 1,3

RATINGS: 2/ 6/ 8/ 11/ 4/ 10/ 5/ 3/ 1/ 9.

R8

BET NOW
Selections BERNIE WINKLE (6), JILLIBY SHANIA (3), I WILL ROCK YOU (7), DON PIERRE (4).
Suggested Bet BERNIE WINKLE (6) To Win.
OVERVIEW: BERNIE WINKLE (6) has taken on some seriously strong races of recent times and while this is incredibly tough in terms of sorting through the winning chances, it might be his turn of foot which proves the difference. JILLIBY SHANIA (3) is ready to win but I WILL ROCK YOU (7) and DON PIERRE (4) have a bit of class and ARTFUL CHRISTIAN (1) should lob a decent run.

EARLY SPEED:  2 (Potential leader) + 1,3,4

RATINGS: 6/ 3/ 7/ 4/ 1/ 2/ 5.

R9

BET NOW
Selections ROCKIN SHIRAZ (1), SCHIPPERS (2), BARTALI (7), A NIP WILL DO (3).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 1/2,3,7/2,3,7 for $20 gets 333%.
OVERVIEW: ROCKIN SHIRAZ (1) was very good resuming and showed last time in that she’s a pretty promising mare so she looks well placed in this series. SCHIPPERS (2) should lob a nice spot in transit and is still getting better while BARTALI (7) isn’t the worst for first fours but you can also throw in A NIP WILL DO (3) and the interesting runner in LAWMANS LOVE (6).

EARLY SPEED:  1 (Likely leader) + 2,3

RATINGS: 1/ 2/ 7/ 3/ 6/ 4/ 5.

R10

BET NOW
Selections ALL INFLIGHT (7), ALL ABOUT RUBY (4), DONTKNOCKITILUTRY (2), ANNABELLBRANSFORD (1).
Suggested Bet Flexi Trifecta 7/4/1,2 for $20 gets 1000%.
OVERVIEW: ALL INFLIGHT (7) looked pretty raw on Kiwi debut but the wraps were pretty big there and it was a soft win so she looks a couple of classes above this field tonight. ALL ABOUT RUBY (4) is capable at her best to be prominent in trifectas but include all of DONTKNOCKITILUTRY (2), ANNABELLBRANSFORD (1), and SASSYFEET (6) to be safe.

EARLY SPEED:  1? 3, 6, 7

RATINGS: 7/ 4/ 2/ 1/ 6/ 5/ 3.
