We have expert betting tips for the card this Wednesday at Warwick Farm that features six quality betting races.
It’s only a short card in Sydney this week but punters get value betting fields and we have our best bets available.
Warwick Farm horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:00) Showtime @ Arrowfield Maiden (1300m)
#1 – Oxford Vision @ $4.20 – Bet @ PlayUp
Oxford Vision is getting close to a win after four starts for four placings. The Kim Waugh-trained gelding handles heavy tracks and that’s another positive.
He was only a nose behind the winner at Wyong last start and he showed good barrier speed, which is always a positive.
Punters get value odds, and despite the betting drift after opening at $3.90, he is a runner worth following.
Race 2. (14:35) Tab Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Ringmaster @ $2.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
Ringmaster is on debut after some pleasing trial form and he might only need luck from a wide barrier.
The two-year-old son of Zoustar showed pace when placing in his first two trials before winning at Randwick and it came by three lengths.
Drawing barrier 11 is the only negative, but he would have been much shorter in betting markets had he drawn well.
Conditions shouldn’t be a problem and we’re confident of handy debut effort.
Race 3. (15:10) First Justify Yearlings BM72 (1600m)
#4 – Samarkand @ $3 – Bet @ PlayUp
Bjorn Baker lines up the three-year-old gelding who has looked impressive at times, including a last-start win at Kembla Grange.
The son of Mongolian Khan defeated a small field by 2.3 lengths in driving rain and conditions won’t be too far off that on Wednesday.
Hugh Bowman rides and punters should be confident of the favourite going back-to-back.
Race 4. (15:45) Pinatubo New @ Darley BM78 (2130m)
#2 – Pesto @ $5.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Pesto hasn’t shown much in two runs back from a spell, but the six-year-old has ability at his best.
The Hawkes-trained son of New Approach plugged to the line last time out at Hawkesbury but we’re expecting better this time around.
His opening odds of $8.50 didn’t last long, so there could be stable confidence and that’s enough to warrant attention.
Race 5. (16:20) Davali Thoroughbreds BM64 (1100m)
#1 – Rebel Shadow @ $5 – Bet @ PlayUp
Rebel Shadow runs well fresh up and we think he’ll hit the ground running on the wet track.
The three-year-old owns a win and two placings from three attempts on heavy surfaces, so running on the heavy 10 surface won’t do his chances any harm.
Getting 2kg off his back is ideal and we are happy with the each-way odds available.
Race 6. (16:55) Vinery Yearlings BM72 (1200m)
#4 – Go Troppo @ $9 – Bet @ PlayUp
Go Troppo owns three wins and four placings from nine starts, so he’s always around the mark.
The four-year-old son of Hinchinbrook wasn’t far behind a smart field at Rosehill last start, which followed a win at Randwick on a heavy surface.
Getting $9 is a fantastic price and that could firm considerably on race day.
