Blake Redden's Preview for Geelong

Wed, 16 Jan 2019

Tonight's trots meeting is coming out of Beckley Park Geelong and we've got a tight and compact six-race card. It's fair to say it's a tricky punting card but I've settled on a best bet at better than even money and a money race which we will be relying on all horses to trot. In terms of the Quaddies, we're not getting too creative with just one combination for each and given the crossover, we'll be relying on a few things to go right.

Track information

Circumference: 960m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Emma Stewart, Leading Driver: Chris Alford

The Moral

Race 4 - No.6 Shelby Bromac

After his last start Kiwi win, this bloke should be very hard to beat tonight.


Take On

Race 3 - No.6 Braeview Bondi

This fella is no doubt the class runner but odds-on looks a fraction short so we'll be playing wider in Quaddies.

Best Bet(s) - $30 Win
R5 No.1 - Roosevelt$2*
This fella is somewhat an unknown commodity but I thought his recent trial behind Concealment was quite good and this looks a winnable race if he can hold a spot early.
Money Race(s)
R6 $30 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
Ventimiglia (5) looks the winner if she's able to maintain her advantage over Muscletonian (6). From there we'll play Bootleg Bert (1) and Sovereign Minx (2) for third.
