Geelong horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:05) Bet365 Odds Drift Protect BM64 (2200m)
#1 – Pilote @ $1.55 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pilote scored a win at Ballarat two back by 3.5 lengths behind finishing second at Sandown by a nose.
It was a tough effort in defeat when being grabbed on the line and he should find this race more to his liking.
$1.55 is very short, but the field of six doesn’t appear to have many classy types.
Race 2. (15:40) All Time Plumbing Maiden (1100m)
#11 – Swerving @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly could make a winning debut after finishing second in a jumpout at Flemington.
She is bred to show early pace and the daughter of Extreme Choice has attracted plenty of attention with bookmakers.
The $2.70 is a fair price and having Damien Oliver in the saddle only adds to her appeal.
Race 3. (16:15) DMB Contracting Maiden (1200m)
#9 – Sugar Pop @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Caroline Jennings lines up Sugar Pop, who did well to finish third on debut at Mornington.
The three-year-old daughter of Vanbrugh settled back and hit the line nicely, which bodes well for the race on Wednesday.
After opening at $3, her odds have firmed. That is a good sign and having Brett Prebble in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 4. (16:50) Geelong Homes Maiden (1300m)
#4 – Can’t Go Wong @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The progeny of Per Incanto have been firing this season and Can’t Go Wong could be the next winner.
He comes off an easy jumpout win at Caulfield where he showed good early pace, which is ideal for racing at Geelong.
The times haven’t been electric, but they might not have to be to beat this field. Put him on top at nice odds.
Race 5. (17:25) Roderick Insurance Brokers Maiden (1700m)
#10 – Princess Tina @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Princess Tina has been around the mark in two runs back from a spell, including a second placing at Ararat fresh up.
The four-year-old mare then finished fourth at The Valley, so she should appreciate the slightly easier class here.
We’re not surprised at the early money coming her way and she could get off the mark.
Race 6. (18:00) Times New Group BM64 (1700m)
#9 – Love Takes Time @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team Freedman lines up Love Takes Time, who won on debut at Moe and has since run two solid races.
The four-year-old mare by Galileo is bred to handle staying distances and she didn’t handle racing over 1400m last time out.
The rise to 1700m is ideal and having Damien Oliver in the saddle only helps her chances.
Race 7. (18:30) Steigem BM64 (1100m)
#11 – Moon Over Alice @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Moon Over Alice showed mixed form during her first campaign, but we saw enough talent to put her on top.
The three-year-old filly won at Geelong two back but she wasn’t able to show much at Flemington behind Argentia.
She might have had a problem, so it could pay to forgive the run and stick with her at the odds.
Race 8. (19:00) Elephant and Castle Hotel BM64 (1300m)
#3 – Starden Lass @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Starden Lass wasn’t far behind some smart types last start and punters get value odds this time around.
The Maher/Eustace-trained mare owns four wins and five placings from 19 starts, so she demands attention at this level.
Bookmakers are offering generous odds, so put her on top.
