Warrnambool horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (11:20) Greyhound Racing Victoria Maiden (1400m)
#1 – Almsgiver @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old is on debut and there has been plenty of betting interest. He opened at $2.70 and has been solidly backed into $2.50.
He hasn’t had any public trials but he’s trained on the track and the breeding lines are there. Expectations are high and he could start as the odds-on favourite.
Race 2. (11:50) Bottle-o Warrnambool Maiden (1700m)
#6 – Sly Corner @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sly Corner is getting close to a win after posting four placings from five starts. The Busuttin/Young-trained gelding ran second at Pakenham last start and that form bodes well.
He has to contend with drawing barrier 11, but this track is ideal and he will appreciate the slight rise in distance.
$3.30 is a fair price and it should remain solid on race day.
Race 3. (12:20) Alex Pye Electrics Maiden (1700m)
#10 – County Hall @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Andrew Payne lines up the four-year-old mare that did enough on debut at Stawell to create attention.
The daughter of Master of Design finished third at long odds and it comes as no surprise to see her shorter in the betting.
She looks well-prepared for this race and punters should take the value.
Race 4. (12:55) Decron Dunroe Steeplechase (3450m)
#10 – American In Paris @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Symon Wilde-trained gelding owns four second placings from five starts over the jumps and he deserves a win.
He is a four-time winner overall and he has good flat speed. He is also a past winner at Warrnambool and steady money has come.
Take the $4 before it drops further.
Race 5. (13:30) Sinclair Wilson BM70 (1000m)
#5 – McKeever @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
McKeever comes off a win on debut at Bendigo and it came by 1.8 lengths. The three-year-old produced a professional display and punters get better odds here.
He paid $2.10 on debut and although facing more depth in this field, we are confident that he can rise through the grades this season.
Racing at his home track should help.
Race 6. (14:05) Sovereign Resort Galleywood (3200m)
#6 – Saunter Boy @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Saunter Boy comes off a win at Pakenham by 2.8 lengths and we’re confident he can win the feature event.
The Maher/Eustace-trained eight-year-old owns two wins and a placing from three starts over jumps, so he loves the role.
He handles soft tracks and this race looks his to lose.
Race 7. (14:45) Whalers Hotel BM64 (1700m)
#5 – Fiorente Lass @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare is a two-time winner that finished third at Moonee Valley two back before rising in class last time out.
She is a past winner at Warrnambool and having finished in the money in seven of her 12 starts, she’s consistent.
$6.50 is a value price for punters.
Race 8. (15:20) Midfield Group Wangoom Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Great Again @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Great Again is classy at best and the eight-year-old is a two-time winner fresh up.
The Lindsay Smith-trained sprinter is a 10-time winner from 26 starts and he comes off a second placing behind Home of the Brave.
His form is far superior to his opposition and punters get lovely odds.
Race 9. (16:00) Idetect BM70 (1400m)
#1 – Cranc @ $9 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cranc owns three wins from four starts and we’re surprised at the value odds available on Wednesday.
The three-year-old gelding scored by a nose at Swan Hill last start and it was a tough outing which will help him in the long run.
Expect him to drop back from barrier 13 but watch for him late.
Race 10. (16:30) Warrnambool Volkswagen BM70 (1400m)
#5 – Nikau Spur @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Nikau Spur comes off a tidy win at Pakenham by 3.8 lengths and he looks to have a nice future.
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old has yet to finish worse than third and although he’s drawn wide, he has class on his side.
$2.50 is about where he had him priced.
