Woodford Cup betting at Warrnambool, December 31

Warrnambool tips

THE best thing about betting at Warrnambool is the big fields on offer for punters.

That’s the scenario again this Sunday as the Woodford Cup takes centre stage on a quality New Years eve card.

We have the best racing tips, form and updated odds available.


Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177114_01]
Dennis has an ordinary name, but it looked to be better than average when running second on debut.

The Darren Weir-trained three-year-old finished within a length of the winner at Echuca and this track should suit nicely.

Punters shouldn’t expect a big price.

Race 1 tip: Dennis to win at WilliamHill.com.au

Race 2 – Maiden Plate (1400m)

Wessels has been tried many times this season, but punters have come unstuck.

The Daniel Bowman-trained runner has plenty of potential as shown with its consecutive second placings, but getting over the line first has been elusive.

This looks like an easier target so consider.

Race 2 tip: Wessels to win at Neds.com.au

Race 3 – Maiden Handicap (1700m)

Condover Hall is trained and ridden by Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Michelle Payne and it looks a strong chance in this.

The son of Mastercraftsman went within two lengths of the winner at Stawell when running at big odds. Expect a shorter quote here.

Race 3 tip: Condover Hall to win at Sportsbet.com.au

Race 4 – BM64 Handicap (1700m)

Wolfendale turned around a poor debut by winning last start for Darren Weir.

The money was well-placed last start when running at $6 and it could pay to follow any strong betting moves again.

Race 4 tip: Wolfendale to win at WilliamHill.com.au

Race 5 – BM64 Handicap (1400m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177114_05]
Dash of Pash could give punters something to kiss about if it was to win on Sunday.

The Symon Wilde-trained runner was a winner at Terang by 2.3 lengths earlier this month before running third at Colac. A slight improvement is needed here, but that was a tricky field.

Race 5 tip: Dash of Pash to win at Neds.com.au

Race 6 – BM78 Handicap (3000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177114_06]
Instrumentalist produced back-to-back wins earlier this season and a return to that form takes it close.

The winner of over $500,000 is best suited over this distance and the weight shouldn’t be an issue.

Race 6 tip: Instrumentalist to win at CrownBet.com.au

Race 7 – Woodford Cup (1700m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177114_07]
Howard By Thy Name was once a consistent runner, but the form has tapered off for the quality type.

Darren Weir will need to work his magic with the five-time winner, but it’s classy at best and this field isn’t the strongest.

Race 7 tip: Howard By Thy Name to win at CrownBet.com.au

Race 8 – BM70 Handicap (1100m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177114_08]
Miss Iano looked good when winning its last three starts before spelling and that bodes well for this.

Its first-up form reads well so stick with the four-year-old mare.

Race 8 tip: Miss Iano to win at Neds.com.au
