We have expert betting tips for the cards this Friday at Swan Hill and Dubbo.
There is plenty of value available with bookmakers at Friday meetings and we pick out the best bets.
Race 1. (12:15) Bet365 Top Tote Plus Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Boom Spirit @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Boom Spirit comes off back-to-back second placings and it won’t take him long to break maidens.
The Lindsay Park-trained three-year-old was under a length from the winner last start and a repeat of that effort takes him close.
The early money is there and he should go well.
Race 3. (13:25) Hygain BM78 (1200m)
#1 – Fundraiser @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old is a quality type that owns four wins and three placings from nine starts. He hasn’t raced since January, but his form bodes well for this level of racing.
The son of Helmet has to carry a big weight but he’s unbeaten in two starts at the distance and we’re not overlooking that form.
$2.70 could firm on race day.
Race 4. (14:00) J Arentz Elvstroem Classic (1300m)
#5 – All About Eve @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
All About Eve comes off an unlucky run at Caulfield where she finished second behind Magic Max. There was nothing wrong with that performance and she looks the goods here.
It followed a maiden win at Bendigo and she could have a bright future. She is a daughter of Star Turn and we’re expecting a top effort here.
$1.80 is getting short but she is worth having on your ticket.
Race 7. (15:50) Pooles Accounting Golden Topaz (1200m)
#7 – Bumper Blast @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bumper Blast is a four-time winner from 12 starts that is better than what he has been showing this season.
He comes off a tough race at Flemington and dropping to this level could have an immediate impact, so we wouldn’t leave him out of selections.
$8 is worth taking and those odds could firm.
Race 8. (16:30) Kubota Swan Hill BM64 (1200m)
#4 – Daunting Magic @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Daunting Magic comes off a half-length maiden win at Geelong and he should prove tough to beat once again.
The three-year-old son of Magnus showed good barrier speed and punters get much better odds this time around, so he’s worth backing.
Race 1. (12:19) Dubbo RSL Sporties Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Beau Factor @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beau Factor owns only one placing from four starts, but the three-year-old is capable of producing the goods here.
He comes off a fourth at Wellington where he was only 1.2 lengths behind the winner. It was a solid effort and he shouldn’t take long to break maiden grades.
Barrier five is ideal and he has winning claims.
Race 3. (13:29) Can Assist Dubbo Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Another Sin @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Another Sin is better than his recent form suggests and we’re prepared to give him another chance at double-figure odds.
The Brett Cavanough-trained six-year-old is a four-time winner at the distance and the wet conditions shouldn’t be too much of a concern.
This race is prime for an upset and he could deliver.
Race 6. (15:14) Dubbo RSL Club Resort BM58 (1300m)
#4 – Prince Akeem @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding comes off a win at Muswellbrook, and although it came by only a nose, it was still a tough effort.
He enjoyed the rise in distance and stepping up to 1300m should suit. He didn’t have all favours after traveling wide and he should get a better run off the inside draw.
It could pay to watch late betting moves with this runner.
Race 7. (15:54) Ben Rafferty Electrical C1 (1100m)
#1 – Fifteen Rounds @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fifteen Rounds is a consistent type that owns a win and seven placings from 18 starts, including a last start placing at Scone.
The son of I Am Invincible owns three placings at this distance and although barrier 12 might seem bad, it could be the place to be in the heavy conditions.
Most of the early money has come for him and that’s a good sign.
