|Where||Bendigo Jockey Club – Heinz St, White Hills VIC 3550|
|When||Friday, March 11 2022|
|First Race||1:30pm AEDT|
Bendigo Jockey Club is the scene for Victoria’s Friday afternoon meeting where a competitive eight-race card is scheduled and Horsebetting’s Victorian tipster is here to help steer you into a few winners with odds provided from leading online bookmakers. The track has come up a Good 4 and the rail has come out to the 9m mark, a further 2m from the 7m we raced at on March 1. A field of 10 two-year-old fillies kicks off the day, with racing scheduled to commence at 1:30pm AEDT.
Bendigo Best Bet: Is This Love
Our best bet of the day comes up early in the card when the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Is This Love returns from a five-month spell. The three-year-old Redoute’s Choice filly has two second place finishes to her name from as many starts and looks set to go one better in this 1100m maiden. She chased home Growl on debut who won at Moonee Valley last Friday night and at her second start ran in to Niccolite who looks to have Stakes level written all over her. There doesn’t look to be that type of depth on paper for this maiden and from barrier two, we expect Damian Lane to roll forward and have her in a prominent position throughout. Whether it is leading the field, or taking a sit on the leader’s heels, Is This Love should have a bit too much on the field and looks a clear best of the day at Bendigo.
Next Best at Bendigo: It’s A Rah
In the opening leg of the quaddie at the ‘Nursery of Champions’ we are expecting the Luke Oliver-trained It’s A Rah to bring up a second win in a row for the first time in her 34-start career. The six-year-old mare took out a 0-58 affair on February 6 at Ararat when hitting the line strongly and getting the head down on the winning post. With that win and three minor placings in her last four runs, the Eurozone mare is clearly racing in career best form and looks one of the better bets of the day. From barrier three, we expect to see Liam Riordan to have her settled midfield with cover and despite going up 4kg from her last start win, It’s A Rah looks too hard to hold out.
Bendigo Value Bet: Yulong Patrol
In the penultimate race of the day, we are hoping the Andrew Bobbin-trained Yulong Patrol can build on his below par effort when fresh at the Bendigo 1300m. Having been severely hampered for a run when building through the gears, we never quite got to see the best of the six-year-old Society Rock gelding. However, once he balanced up, he looked to be hitting the line nicely and with even luck this time round he may take some beating. From barrier 10, look for Liam Riordan to be aggressive early on and have him settled in the one-one or outside the leader. Considering he finished his last campaign with four consecutive runner-up efforts he clearly has some ability and with $? on offer from Neds, it is a price we cannot pass up.
