Bendigo Guineas Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:15) A Simmo Simpson BM84 (2400m)
#2 – Grand Promenade – Bet Now
Grand Promenade just keeps fighting, and that was evident when he scored at Caulfield last time out.
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old made it four consecutive wins, and he looks a nice stayer on the rise.
The breeding suggests as much and although facing a harder field here, he looks capable of handling it.
Race 2. (12:50) RSN In Bendigo BM78 (1300m)
#6 – Write Your Name – Bet Now
The Archie Alexander-trained gelding is shooting for consecutive wins after scoring at Ballarat last time out.
He’s a son of Written Tycoon that owns four wins and six placings from 15 starts. It’s a good record to date and his best form would take him very close.
Drawing barrier four helps and Jordan Childs takes the ride.
Race 3. (13:30) Underground Cabling Systems BM84 (1100m)
#9 – Simply Optimistic – Bet Now
The Kiwi runner showed what he can do when beating a good field at Randwick last winter. He scored a good win in heavy conditions last June, which made it three consecutive wins.
His form in New Zealand was good and although kicking off at 1100m isn’t ideal, he’s good enough to win.
In-form jockey Michael Walker takes the ride, so put him on top.
Race 4. (14:10) Smartline Bendigo Gold Rush (1000m)
#7 – Masseuse – Bet Now
Masseuse didn’t get all favours last start so we’re prepared to forgive that effort. The Maher/Eustace-trained filly ran second behind River Night, which is good form.
It followed on from a handy debut effort at Moonee Valley, so it’s only a matter of time before she breaks through for the win.
Drawing barrier 14 makes it tough but with luck, she’s fighting out the finish.
Race 5. (14:50) URMG Security Handicap (2200m)
#1 – Adelaide Ace – Bet Now
Les Smith lines up the three-year-old gelding that was beaten on its merits last start, but certainly not disgraced.
He finished second behind Nonconformist at Moonee Valley, and that form stacks up nicely for this race.
He’s a Group 2 winner and he’s the class runner of the field.
Race 6. (15:30) Catanach’s Gold Bracelet (1400m)
#2 – Fabric – Bet Now
Fabric showed her quality when scoring by 2.5 lengths at Flemington last month. She didn’t back it up with a win last start, but she ran well.
She finished fourth behind Paint the Town Two at Group 3 level, which should hold her in good stead for this run.
Her only start at Bendigo resulted in a placing, and having track experience here is a big help.
Race 7. (16:10) Jayco Bendigo Guineas (1400m)
#3 – Spend – Bet Now
Spend was never going to be a chance at Group 1 level last start against the older horses. Back to his own age group, he should be competitive.
The Hawkes-trained colt scored by a length at Flemington two starts back, and that form looks ideal for this.
He has drawn barrier three and punters could get each-way odds from bookmakers.
Race 8. (16:50) Bet365 Golden Mile (1600m)
#2 – Debt Agent @ $7.50 – Bet Now
Money has come for Debt Agent, which owns four wins from eight starts second-up. The Jim Conlan-trained gelding ran on well at Flemington last time out.
He’s not getting any younger, but he has 12 wins from 28 starts, and that record should be respected against this lineup.
There is no standout runner in this field, so take the generous odds on offer.
Race 9. (17:25) Mitchelton Winery BM90 (1400m)
#12 – Big Night Out – Bet Now
Coming off a big run at Flemington, Big Night Out looks a chance of causing a minor upset. The four-year-old finished a half-length behind Chicago Cub, which is good form at this level.
He will need some luck from barrier 11, but this track should suit and punters could get each-way odds.
