Punters are loving the great value and quality thoroughbreds on offer and we’re delighted to offer free racing tips, form and odds for the entire meeting.
Sign up to Neds.com.au for up to $500 in bonus bets, which can be used this Saturday.
Race 1 – C3 Plate (900m)
Crusher wasn’t too far away from them last start and it has garnered the support from punters here. The Ben Currie-trained runner won its first two career starts by a combined margin of over six lengths and the money is coming for it.
Race 1 tip: Crusher to win ($2.75) at CrownBet.com.au
Race 2 – 2YO Handicap (1100m)
Sunlight is the clear top pick after a dominating victory last time out. The Tony McEvoy-trained two-year-old looks set for bigger targets and it should deal to this field at a short price.
Race 2 tip: Sunlight to win ($1.65) at CrownBet.com.au
Race 3 – 3YO Handicap (1800m)
All Too Huiying was beaten on its merits by Boom Boom Epic last start, but we think it could turn the tables. The Gary Moore-trained three-year-old has drawn wide, but it’s an adaptable type which could be tough to get past in the straight.
Race 3 tip: All Too Huiying to win ($3) at Neds.com.au
Race 4 – BM80 Handicap (2200m)
The Rumour File has recorded back-to-back placings and it looks closer to scoring another win. The Chris Waller-trained runner was a quality winner at Doomben three back and a repeat of that effort should see it winning here.
Race 5 – 3YO Handicap (1200m)
Susurri has placed in both runs this campaign and it should get every chance from barrier eight. The Barry Lockwood-trained runner has been taking on some tough opposition this campaign and although it’s meeting another tidy field here, it represents value.
Race 5 tip: Susurri to place ($2.30) at CrownBet.com.au
Race 6 – C6 Handicap (1400m)
Cruze has drawn the inside barrier which has seen a big move in the market. The Lockwood-trained gelding has firmed in from $5.50 to $4.20 and it should get every chance from the inside draw with only 53kg on its back.
Race 6 tip: Cruze to win ($4.20) at Sportsbet.com.au
Race 7 – BM90 Handicap (1800m)
Don’t Tell Mama could add some value at odds after finishing second last time out in a similar race. That came behind race-rival Feltre, but it has the ability to turn the tables here.
Race 8 – Open Handicap (1200m)
Siegfried needed the run last time out and this should suit nicely. It will have to carry the big weight with Jeff Lloyd in the saddle, but it has plenty of ability and the opposition isn’t exactly in great form.
Race 8 tip: Siegfried to win ($6) at Sportsbet.com.au
Race 9 – Open Handicap (1200m)
Nilette has been confidently backed throughout the week. The Robert Heathcote-trained runner has firmed in from $4.40 to $2.65 in a big push following its last start win. That’s good form and the inside draw is ideal.
Race 9 tip: Nilette to win ($2.65) at CrownBet.com.au
