Geelong betting tips for April 2

What Geelong Races
Where Geelong Racecourse – 99 Breakwater Rd, Breakwater VIC 3219
When Tuesday, April 2, 2024
First Race 1:30pm AEDT

Victorian horse racing on Tuesday afternoon heads to Geelong Racecourse, where a competitive eight-race meeting awaits punters. With plenty of rain forecast for Monday, and showers forecast for most of Tuesday, punters can expect the meeting to be run on at least a Soft 6-7, with a further downgrade likely. The rail comes out 7m from the 1800m-800m, with it out 10m the remainder of the circuit. Action from Geelong is set to commence at 1:30pm AEDT.

Best Bet at Geelong – Pure Power

Pure Power has been banging down the doors of a maiden win and at the seventh time of asking, he should be clearing maiden ranks. Ciaron Maher’s three-year-old gelding got nosed out at Yarra Valley on March 17, but with seven lengths back to third, it suggests a repeat performance should see him prove too tough at Geelong. Theodore Ladd will look to hold a prominent position from a wide draw, and outside of any bad luck in transit, the 2260m looks right up Pure Power’s alley, and he should have no issue outstaying his rivals.

Next Best at Geelong – Riproar

Returning from a near six-month spell, Andrew Forsman’s Riproar looks to have found the right race to return a winner in. The three-year-old gelding was chasing home the likes of Riff Rocket and Sunsource last campaign in Listed company, so he should appreciate the step back to a BM64 at Geelong. He has a win and minor placing on Soft going in his career, and despite no doubt wanting further than the 1340m he returns at, Riproar’s class should prove the difference against this field.

Best Value at Geelong – Dysart

Clinton McDonald’s newly-acquired Dysart was hitting the line nicely over 1112m at Geelong on stable debut on March 16, and with the step up to 1240m, he looks a great each-way play with horse racing bookies. The three-year-old gelding is a genuine backmarker, so needs his races run at a genuine clip, which he should get on Tuesday. Unlike most tracks, when the rail comes out as far as it does for this meeting, backmarkers play a key role. Craig Newitt will have the son of Smart Missile in clear air on the home turn, and with a strong turn of foot, Dysart can break maiden ranks at start four.
