Rotorua is one of the more popular midweek betting destinations across the Tasman and we have free racing tips, form and odds available for every race.
Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1215m)
Toffee Pop ran well for third on debut at Taupo behind I Am Queen and although it finished 5.1 lengths behind the winner, nothing was making ground from the back and this looks ideal.
Race 1 tip: Toffee Pop to win at Neds.com.au
Race 2 – BM65 Handicap (1215m)
Wonder Woman has placed twice in a row and the in-form Jake Bayliss takes the ride. Bayliss is riding exceptionally well in New Zealand for the Moroney/Gerard stables and he should go close with Wonder Woman.
Race 2 tip: Wonder Woman to win at Sportsbet.com.au
Race 3 – Maiden Handicap (1100m)
Sacredvista will have plenty of admirers after it has placed in both runs to date. Tony Pike lines up the three-year-old filly which should show good improvement from those two outings.
Race 3 tip: Sacredvista to win at CrownBet.com.au
Race 4 – Maiden Handicap (1950m)
Anarchy has improved its form this season after running poorly on debut. The Pike-trained four-year-old hasn’t come close to winning a race, but there is room for improvement and jockey Michael McNab should be able to get the best out of it.
Race 4 tip: Anarchy to win at Neds.com.au
Race 5 – BM65 Handicap (1950m)
Artiste has won and placed three times from four starts this campaign. The Baker/Forsman-trained runner has been a model of consistency and her recent placing at Ellerslie was good enough to suggest she’s a winning chance here.
Race 5 tip: Artiste to win at Neds.com.au
Race 6 – BM75 Handicap (1400m)
Honneur Noir is searching for three consecutive wins. The Peter Lock-trained mare turned its form around in style with back-to-back wins at Arawa Park and a third could be on the cards here.
Race 6 tip: Honneur Noir to win at Sportsbet.com.au
Race 7 – Maiden Plate (1400m)
Sacred Charm hasn’t quite hit its straps for Stephen McKee, but this looks like a winnable race. The well-bred filly by Fastnet Rock finished fifth on this track last start and it should go well at each way odds.
Race 7 tip: Sacred Charm to win at CrownBet.com.au
Race 8 – Maiden Plate (1400m)
Our Showgirl has drawn wide in barrier 16, but its recent form stacks up nicely. The Moroney/Gerard-trained mare finished a close second on this track last start and premiership leader Sam Collett takes the ride.
