Bendigo horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) Bet365 Top Tote Plus Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Raazou @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Team Corstens lines up the three-year-old colt that finished well for second on debut at Pakenham.
The son of Zoustar was only a length behind the winner and that was a strong form guide. He finished behind Frederick The Dane, which is a nice type.
Money has come throughout the week and that is a good sign.
Race 2. (13:35) Tac Be Races Ready BM78 (2200m)
#7 – Flag Edition @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Flag Edition has struggled to find her best form this season but she is coming off a tough effort at Moonee Valley.
The Michelle Payne-trained mare finished fifth in awful conditions at The Valley, but she has been given time to recover.
She gets the inside draw and punters get each-way odds.
Race 3. (14:10) Rankins Catering BM70 (1500m)
#10 – Bacchus @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Bacchus is finding it tough to win races but he has been close at his last few starts. The Chris Waller-trained gelding finished second at Sandown two back, before running third at Bendigo.
Having experience on this track is ideal and with Craig Williams in the saddle from barrier two, punters should be confident.
Race 4. (14:45) Adroit Insurance BM70 (1600m)
#9 – Shush @ $6 – Bet Now
Shush is a capable four-year-old that ran well at Pakenham last start and it won’t take her long to win another race.
The Kent/Price-trained mare owns experience racing in the city and she was good enough to finish third at Caulfield two starts back.
$6 is a great price from bookmakers.
Race 5. (15:20) Bendigo Skin Clinic Racing C1 (1400m)
#6 – Early Morning Rise @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Early Morning Rise is getting close to a win after consecutive placings. She finished third at Sandown before running second at Bendigo.
The Danny O’Brien-trained four-year-old finished only a half-length behind the winner earlier this month, so that is a good form guide.
Having Damien Oliver riding is ideal and that could make the difference.
Race 6. (15:55) Braidie’s 80th Birthday BM70 (1300m)
#9 – The Difference @ $3.80 – Bet Now
The Difference runs at generous odds, given his recent form. The McEvoy-trained five-year-old has scored back-to-back wins at Morphettville, and he was electric last start.
He scored by 1.5 lengths over a quality field and he drops in class for this race. Rising in weight won’t worry him too much and $3.80 is a great price.
Race 7. (16:30) Two Sisters Catering BM70 (1300m)
#11 – Special Snap @ $3.50 – Bet Now
Special Snap is a quality type that is coming off a second placing at Sale. The former Sydney-based runner battled on well last time out and she will appreciate the fitness.
Her form in Sydney would see her winning this race, and having William Pike in the saddle is ideal.
She jumps from barrier three and the $3.50 is a price worth taking.
Race 8. (17:05) Silk Day Spa BM70 (1100m)
#9 – The Gauch @ $2.80 – Bet Now
The Gauch is a nice type in the making that has yet to finish worse than second from four career starts.
He scored wins at Traralgon and Mornington, with the latter coming easily by five lengths. It was a top effort and we’re not surprised at the short odds here.
The Maher/Eustace-trained runner draws well in barrier three and we are confident of his chances.
