We have expert betting tips for the card this Wednesday at Kyneton that features nine quality betting races.
It’s not a high-profile midweek meeting because of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, but the Kyneton Cup should attract plenty of attention.
We have our best value bets available.
Kyneton horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:30) Hygain Maiden Plate (1206m)
#10 – La Perfection – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Danny O’Brien-trained three-year-old hasn’t had any public trials, but she is bred to be better than most of these.
She is a daughter of Lonhro, who will need to contend with a wide draw, but she should show good barrier speed.
Having Damien Thornton in the saddle is ideal.
Race 2. (13:00) Cams Security Maiden (1106m)
#7 – Yishay – Bet @ Sportsbet
Yishay hasn’t done much wrong from two career starts, which includes a second placing at Kyneton last time out.
The three-year-old gelding was only 1.5 lengths behind the winner last start as the $2 favourite. Punters will likely get similar odds this time around.
It’s another good ride for Thornton, who could have a big day.
Race 3. (13:35) No Fuss Event Hire Maiden (1459m)
#5 – Miyazaki – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Peter Moody-trained three-year-old ran second on debut at Mornington, which was a nice first-up effort.
He had solid betting support, and despite finishing 1.5 lengths behind the winner, he will only get better with the outing.
Our only worry is the wide barrier, but he has time to find cover.
Race 4. (14:10) Sole Refrig & Air Con BM64 (1862m)
#1 – Holster – Bet @ Sportsbet
Holster is a two-time winner from 15 starts, but he has been around the mark on many occasions.
The five-year-old son of Tavistock gets the inside running, and although yet to race on this track, he should enjoy the surface.
His most recent run at Mornington is a good indication of his ability.
Race 5. (14:45) Furphy Crisp Lager BM64 (1106m)
#7 – Major Impact – Bet @ Sportsbet
Major Impact comes off a win at Moe on a heavy track, and he should be better suited to dry conditions.
The four-year-old son of Real Impact has improved significantly over his last two starts, which is a good sign for his future.
It’s not the hardest field he’ll ever face, so punters should be confident in his chances.
Race 6. (15:20) Bet365 Mt Macedon Dash BM84 (1206m)
#7 – Lighthouse – Bet @ Sportsbet
The former United States runner attracts plenty of interest. There aren’t many US-based runners sold to Australia, but her form stacks up nicely.
The three-time winner has more than $480,000 in stakes, and she finished fifth in a tough field at Santa Anita last start. That came in February, but this isn’t a tough field.
Getting the inside draw and a light weight makes it interesting.
Race 7. (16:00) Evolve Interiors BM70 (1206m)
#8 – Canadian Gold – Bet @ Sportsbet
Canadian Gold comes off back-to-back placings at Sale and Ballarat, which is superb form for this level.
The Corstens-trained four-year-old has plenty of class, and although only a one-win mare, she should have scored many more times.
She is bred to be better than these and we’re confident of a big effort.
Race 8. (16:40) Bet365 Kyneton Cup (2012m)
#1 – Dark Dream – Bet @ Sportsbet
We are patiently waiting for Dark Dream to get winning form, but the seven-year-old went close last start.
The Hayes-trained son of All American was a short margin behind the winner at Moe, and he has faced tough fields throughout his career.
He is a three-time winner at the distance and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 9. (17:15) Prendergast Earthmoving BM70 (1459m)
#5 – Kamien – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kamien is a tough horse to follow and his better runs come in heavy conditions, but punters should get a good price.
The six-year-old is a five-time winner overall, and he was only a short margin behind the winner at Noe last time out.
3kg comes off his back, so consider.
