We have expert betting tips for the cards this Sunday at Wangaratta and Cowra.
Punters can find great value this week and we have our best bets available for the two Sunday meetings.
Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:20) Bi-Rite Electrical Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Champs D’or @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The McEvoy-trained three-year-old didn’t show much in her only trial, but there has been good betting support come her way.
She is a well-bred daughter of Deep Field, and after opening at $2.90, steady money has come throughout the week.
Barrier two is ideal and we’re expecting a positive effort.
Race 2. (13:55) Reflex Glass Joinery Maiden (1000m)
#3 – Exceed Tycoon @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Knocking on the door of a win is Exceed Tycoon, which has placed in both career starts to date.
The Lindsay Park-trained three-year-old finished second at Benalla last start, and form behind Alluring Grace should stack up nicely.
The $2.80 should firm over the weekend, so lock in the value now.
Race 4. (15:05) 3NE & Edge FM Maiden (1300m)
#8 – Fire Wheel @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fire Wheel had no support on debut at Echuca, but the three-year-old performed highly when running second.
The Nick Ryan-trained gelding was sent out at $41, but bookmakers haven’t made the same mistake this time around.
He gets every chance off the inside barrier, and a maiden win won’t be far away.
Race 6. (16:15) Sportsbet BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Heart of Puissance @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not many All-Star Mile entrants line up on a Sunday in BM70 grade, but Heart of Puissance needs a confidence boost.
The Maher/Eustace-trained runner should never have run in the All-Star Mile at Caulfield, and unfortunately, he pulled up lame.
Connections have set their sights much lower here, and if he has any amount of ability, he should put this field to bed.
Race 9. (17:45) Wangaratta Chronicle BM64 (1000m)
#13 – Kiata @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kiata scored on debut and although yet to win since, the four-year-old has been right around the mark.
She finished second at Echuca last time out when going down by a nose. It will hold her in good stead for this run, and there are no superstars in this field.
Money is coming for her, so expect the $2.60 odds to firm.
Race 2. (13:40) Australian Hotel Maiden (1375m)
#7 – Grey Mantra @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Grey Mantra has taken on some tough fields to date, and her recent trial placing was a positive outing.
The Richard Litt-trained mare finished second at Warwick Farm, and city form should be enough to take out this race.
Drawing the inside barrier is ideal, and we’re not surprised by the odds available with bookmakers.
Race 4. (14:50) Dr G Sprigge Memorial BM58 (950m)
#9 – Miss Devinci @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old mare scored a win at Queanbeyan last season, and anything close to that performance would see her winning on Sunday.
She followed it up with a four at Taree before not handling the soft conditions. However, she has been given time to recover from that run and makes a fresh start here.
Punters get value odds, and she represents value.
Race 6. (16:00) Breakout River Meats Japan Cup (1200m)
#2 – Up Trumpz @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old gelding is having a tough time winning races, but he owns enough ability to beat this field.
He is a five-time winner from 41 starts, which includes 16 placings. He has yet to race at Cowra, but the son of Zariz enjoys racing at country circuits.
Punters get value odds for the favourite, and he should give a good sight.
Race 7. (16:40) Cowra Lamb Cowra Cup (1700m)
#3 – Royal Thunder @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Royal Thunder capped off consistent form with a win at Canberra, and he’s capable of scoring consecutive wins.
The Matthew Dale-trained gelding is a seven-time winner, and he has yet to finish worse than second at this distance.
We are not surprised at the odds available, so get stuck in before the odds firm.
