Tried our top rated bookmakers?
Race 1. (12:05) Iron Jack Maiden (1000m)
#14 – Strangeless @ $3.40 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Strangeless comes off a trial placing at Rosehill and that form should stack up nicely on debut at Wagga.
The Kurt Goldman-trained has shown an ability to handle wet tracks at the trials and that bodes well for what could be a heavy surface on Monday.
1.5kg comes off her back and she is our top pick.
Race 3. (13:15) Quickfix Cup Prelude BM66 (2500m)
#2 – Vintage Diesel @ $2.05 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Vintage Diesel is a four-time winner from 14 starts, including two wins from three attempts at Wagga.
The four-year-old son of He’s Remarkable comes off a 1.5-length win at Wagga and we’re not surprised by the short odds to win again.
Getting a 2kg claim helps and his odds could continue to firm.
Race 5. (14:35) Riverina Motor Group Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Eastern Glow @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Eastern Glow is a three-year-old gelding who ran second at Canberra on debut and he has been well-backed to score here.
The son of Your Song should derive benefit from that effort and after opening at $3.50, his odds have firmed into $2.90.
That’s a solid betting move and we’re in his camp.
Race 7. (15:45) Avis River Battlers Cup BM50 (1300m)
#2 – Huxton Creeper @ $8.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Huxton Creeper is only a one-time winner from 11 starts but the win came at Wagga and we like the odds available.
The four-year-old comes off a fifth at Goulburn when only 2.5 lengths behind the winner, so it’s a good sign that he’s back to his best.
The odds are generous and worth taking.
Race 1. (13:00) Emmetts Maiden Plate (1200m)
#9 – There There @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
There There didn’t jump well from the barriers on debut at Ballarat but she made up a stack up ground to finish second.
It was an impressive performance in defeat for the Maher/Eustace-trained filly and we’re surprised that she’s not the odds-on favourite.
The $2.90 could firm to around $1.90 on race day.
Race 3. (14:00) Ron Gebert Life Member Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Magic Chloe @ $2.35 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Magic Chloe got close to winning last preparation when placing twice and she could hit the ground running.
The three-year-old daughter of Stratum Star ran second on debut at Horsham before running 3.3 lengths behind the winner at Warrnambool.
It’s a good form guide and she could capitalise.
Race 4. (14:30) Emmetts Maiden Plate (2200m)
#7 – Sing For Peace @ $3 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Sing For Peace didn’t fire out of the barriers on debut at Moe but he did well to finish second behind Bell’s Bighouse.
The three-year-old by Tavistock should be better for the effort and the Payne stable has been firing on all cylinders lately.
We’re liking the odds available for the favourite.
Race 6. (15:30) Jess Track Manager Award BM58 (1600m)
#12 – Lady Adelaide @ $3.70 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The Payne-trained three-year-old filly finished second on debut at Bendigo and she could score an overdue win.
She placed at her only start on the track and getting back to this surface could see her form turn in the right direction.
We expect more money to come for her on race day.
