Wednesday racing form has stacked up beautifully this season and we have all the best bets, form and odds from both meetings this week.
Sandown free tips & form
Race 1. (14:45) Ladbrokes Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Ironore Gina @ $2.80 – Bet Now
On debut for Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young and she has been well-backed throughout the week.
The two-year-old filly by Keep The Faith hasn’t been seen at the trials which could be a negative, but with the money coming for her, that’s a great sign.
It means she has been showing talent at home and it could pay to follow the betting for any more significant moves.
Race 2. (15:20) Mypunter Maiden (1400m)
#11 – Secretly Discreet @ $3.20 – Bet Now
The Phillip Stokes stable is going well in Victoria and Secretly Discreet looks to have a good chance of winning here.
She’s a filly by Lonhro, which ran third on debut at Sandown before running just under two lengths behind the winner at Pakenham last start.
She gets the inside draw and some weight off her back here, which should see her running right up to her best ability.
Race 3. (16:00) Clanbrooke Racing BM64 (1300m)
#6 – Woman @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Had plenty of support when running third as the $2.60 favourite at Pakenham last start but she will have only taken benefit from that run.
Prior to that, the royally-bred daughter of Frankel x. More Joyous, was a winner on debut at Canterbury by two lengths and she must be a great winning chance in this.
Expecting bookmakers to trim her odds.
Race 4. (16:30) Spicer Thoroughbreds C1 (1200m)
#10 – Diamond Effort @ $2.15 – Bet Now
Couldn’t have scored any more impressively last start when thrashing her rivals by six lengths at Cranbourne.
The filly by Mossman cleared out her rivals despite overracing in the middle stages and if she puts it all together here, she could win by a similar margin.
Nice type on the rise.
Race 7. (18:00) Le Pine Funerals BM64 (1500m)
#7 – Toorak Warrior @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Four-year-old gelding which comes into this with good form lines behind the likes of Stocktaka and in particular Jumbo Ozaki.
The son of Toorak Toff has placed at his last three starts, all coming this campaign, and getting the inside draw should see him fighting out the finish.
Nice odds on offer in the open field.
Warwick Farm free tips and form
Race 1. (12:55) Rubick @ Coolmore Maiden (1100m)
#11 – Olympic @ $6 – Bet Now
Chris Waller trains the two-year-old colt which ran third on debut behind Pin Sec, which has subsequently run in the Golden Slipper.
The son of Medaglia D’oro has since ran fifth in a trial at Randwick behind Blue Diamond winner Lyre and his form lines read well for this.
We’re surprised to see his odds at $6, but he will handle the track and that’s a good value price in the first race.
Race 2. (13:35) The Championships On Sale Maiden (1100m)
#14 – Wayupinthesky @ $2.20 – Bet Now
Had good support on debut in a much harder race than what she faces here. The filly by Snitzel ran as a $6 chance when running behind the highly-performed Tenley on debut.
She faces a big drop in class for this and although beaten, she wasn’t that far behind one of the Slipper favourites. That run will hold her in good stead and she should improve.
Inside draw on a wet track isn’t ideal but look for early pace and jockey Sam Clipperton to course wide in the straight.
Race 3. (14:15) Star Turn @ Vinery BM70 (1400m)
#4 – Green Aeon @ $2.70 – Bet Now
Unsure about the track conditions for this runner, but he won with something in hand on debut and much like his name, he was a touch green.
Bjorn Baker lines up the son of Snitzel which scored by two lengths at Warwick Farm. He faced only four runners on that occasion but he had plenty in hand at the line.
Only concern is the heavy track but he’s a nice type.
Race 6. (16:05) ANZ Bloodstock News BM70 (1200m)
#9 – Fasika @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Paid a big price on debut when winning at $13 but she’s much shorter here and rightfully so.
The Joe Pride-trained filly scored by two lengths when showing a good turn-of-foot and being by So You Think, she’s only going to enjoy more racing.
Would have liked to have seen her run over 1400m but she has the class to win again.
Race 7. (16:45) Tab Rewards BM76 (1600m)
#3 – Gold Mag @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Has been disappointing in Melbourne since winning his first two starts by almost 10 lengths, but we’re certain he’s a wet-track horse.
The son of Savabeel has had three starts on rain-affected ground for two wins and one placing. Compare that to his three starts on a good track for one placing and it’s light and day.
Hugh Bowman is a good booking and we can see quick improvement from this clearly talented type.
