Bendigo horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) Bendigo Mazda Maiden (1100m)
#9 – Mornington Glory @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mornington Glory has been heavily backed on debut, which is a good sign. The Matt Laurie-trained three-year-old has shown good ability in workouts, and he’s a well-related type.
He is a half-brother to Hallowed Crown, so we’re not surprised his opening odds of $2 have firmed into an odds-on quote.
Barrier nine makes it tricky, but he looks to have a bright future.
Race 2. (13:30) Bet365 Protest Promise Maiden (2400m)
#12 – Steer for Lady @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Kent-trained four-year-old didn’t do much wrong when running second behind Redsong last start, which should be a good form guide.
She will appreciate rising in distance, and she’s not facing an overly tough field on Wednesday. There are no superstars in this field, so she can take advantage.
$3.80 is a fair price given her upside.
Race 3. (14:10) The Big Screen Company Maiden (1400m)
#3 – Riverplate @ $1.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Riverplate was heavily backed in his Australian debut when running a nose behind the winner at Sandown.
The Kiwi runner finished second on debut across the Tasman with the Guineas as the main target, so he’ll need to win this contest.
Punters will have to take short odds again, but he should get the job done.
Race 4. (14:45) Apiam Animal Health BM64 (1600m)
#4 – Rapid Achiever @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to remain unbeaten is Rapid Achiever, who scored at Donald on debut before winning at Sandown last time out.
The four-year-old defeated a quality field last start, so she demands attention, and she’s good enough to rise through the grades.
Barrier two sees her land in a good position, so the $2.60 is a respectable price.
Race 5. (15:20) Catanach’s Jewellers BM70 (1300m)
#2 – Agreeable @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Agreeable has more talent than most in this field and she could make a winning return at midweek level.
The four-year-old mare is a two-time winner from 10 starts and she scored a quality win at Caulfield last season.
Anything close to that form is good enough, so punters shouldn’t overlook the each-way odds available.
Race 6. (15:55) Bendigo MG BM64 (1300m)
#11 – Rinnova @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rinnova scored her maiden win at Geelong two back and followed it with a close second placing at Cranbourne.
The five-year-old daughter of Dream Ahead was only a half-length behind Morning Melody, so we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
Barrier two is ideal and we expect money to come for her on race day.
Race 7. (16:30) Bendigo Locksmiths C1 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Marimenko @ $1.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Marimenko runs at short odds, but justifiably so after finishing second behind The Garden at Sandown last start.
The son of Zoffany was a five-length winner at Ballarat prior to the placing, so he is a smart type that could rise through the grades easily.
Barrier two is ideal and he should go close.
Race 8. (17:05) Silks Events & Functions BM70 (1100m)
#13 – More Secrets @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
More Secrets is unbeaten after two starts, and although he only narrowly scored last start, it was a gutsy effort.
The four-year-old mare by More than Ready has winning form on this track, which is ideal, and she gets Craig Williams in the saddle.
Barrier two is ideal and we’re not surprised by the money coming for her.
