Bendigo horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:30) The Big Screen Company Maiden (1000m)
#5 – Far Enough @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Far Enough is on debut for Dale Short and the booking of Damien Oliver is a good sign for punters.
The three-year-old gelding was unplaced in a recent trial but he wasn’t asked to do much. His opening odds of $3.40 have firmed and we are expecting more money to come.
Follow the betting markets on race day with this runner.
Race 2. (14:00) Bendigo MG Maiden (1600m)
#12 – Rousseau @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the colt which is due for a win. He has had five starts for one placing, but his recent form in Melbourne has been solid.
He didn’t get much luck at Geelong last start and he isn’t meeting a harder field. It should suit and it is another good ride for Oliver.
The $2.60 should remain steady throughout the week.
Race 3. (14:30) Tac Be Races Ready Maiden (1400m)
#6 – Charmed Individual @ $11 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young lines up the colt by Charm Spirit, which is expected to run better than he showed on debut.
He finished seventh at Moe as a $5.50 chance, but he didn’t handle the heavy conditions. On better ground, his chances of winning should increase.
Punters are getting odds worth taking on Wednesday.
Race 4. (15:00) Bet365 Odds Protector BM64 (1100m)
#9 – Twain’s Express @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Twain’s Express looked good winning on debut at Mornington and although facing a harder field here, she could remain unbeaten.
The John McArdle-trained filly scored by just under a length in soft track conditions and her breeding suggests she’ll like it firmer.
The inside draw is ideal and she should make the most of it.
Race 5. (15:30) The Metropolitan BM70 (1100m)
#6 – Ocular @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ocular wasn’t suited by the way the race was run at Flemington last start, so we are giving him another chance.
The four-year-old gelding was impressive winning two starts back at Bendigo, when clearing out the field by 4.3 lengths.
Having winning experience on this track is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 6. (16:00) National Hotel BM70 (2400m)
#4 – Zoffala @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zoffala is a three-time winner from eight starts and after scoring by two lengths over 2226m, rising to 2400m should suit.
The McEvoy-trained son of Zoffany showed a fine turn-of-foot and that will hold him in good stead for the rest of this season.
There isn’t much between the runners in this field, but punters get value with Zoffala.
Race 7. (16:30) Apiam Animal Health BM70 (1600m)
#5 – Somerset Maugham @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Danny O’Brien-trained gelding is searching for his third consecutive win and we wouldn’t put it past the imported runner.
The son of Galileo dropped back in distance this campaign and that has worked a treat. Despite his breeding suggesting he can win over 2400m, the mile looks better for him.
O’Brien has the import figured out and that could result in another win.
Race 8. (17:00) Brougham Arms BM64 (1400m)
#8 – Campese @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Campese scored a fresh up win at The Valley last season and anything close to that performance will be good enough here.
The Archie Alexander-trained gelding didn’t fire in two subsequent starts, but he faces an easier field and that should make a difference.
Drawing barrier is ideal and punters are getting each-way odds.
