Tried our top rated bookmakers?
Race 1. (12:20) Blakes Marine Maiden (1400m)
#12 – Golden Queen @ $2.60 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Golden Queen comes off a third placing at Randwick and that form is tough to overlook at this level.
The two-year-old filly was 6.1 lengths behind winner Owen County, who lines up at Group 1 level on Saturday. However, the form bodes well and this is much easier.
Expect her to push forward from the draw and kick nicely.
Race 3. (13:30) Irresistible Pools Maiden (1300m)
#8 – Globe Runner @ $5 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Globe Runner comes off back-to-back second placings, including one at Hawkesbury last time out.
The Paul Murray-trained three-year-old shouldn’t take long to win a race and getting the inside draw makes it easier.
Punters get $5 and those odds are worth snapping up.
Race 5. (14:40) Blacktown Workers Club C1 (1500m)
#1 – Matlock @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Seeking back-to-back wins is Matlock, who beat home Globe Runner by 3.8 lengths last start at Hawkesbury.
The three-year-old gelding enjoyed the heavy conditions and he’ll have no problem handling the slightly better surface on Sunday.
Barrier two makes it easy to find the lead and he could kick away.
Race 7. (15:55) Lander Toyota BM64 (1000m)
#5 – Rita May @ $4.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Rita May already owns two wins and a placing from four starts and her best form comes over this distance.
The three-year-old filly also comes off a trial win at Hawkesbury and that was a nice trial field, so it bodes well.
Punters get each-way odds and she could attract attention on race day.
Race 1. (11:40) The Bottle O Swan Hill Maiden (975m)
#11 – Mogulist @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The two-year-old gelding didn’t show much fresh up but he improved to finish third at Ballarat.
There has been steady money for him throughout the week and it’s not a tough maiden field, so he could capitalise without needing to improve much.
We’re putting him clearly on top.
Race 2. (12:15) Ultima Hotel Maiden (1600m)
#11 – Jenniferenti @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Looking to cap off consecutive placings is Jenniferenti, who was the beaten favourite at Ballarat last time out.
The three-year-old filly couldn’t live up to her $1.75 odds but punters get better odds this time around, so she’s worth backing.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and the $2.80 could firm on race day.
Race 7. (15:15) Jarrod Arentz Electrical BM78 (2400m)
#10 – Teofilo Star @ $2.70 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Teofilo Star was too good for them at Sandown last start and we like his chances of going on with it.
The four-year-old gelding owns two wins and four placings from seven starts and he’s a nice staying type in the making.
Carrying 55kg is ideal and we’re in his camp.
Race 8. (15:50) Bet365 Swan Hill Cup (1600m)
#11 – Beltoro @ $7.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Beltoro was a winner earlier this preparation and he has since returned to form with three consecutive placings.
The four-year-old gelding has run his last three races at Caulfield, so the form stacks up and we can’t believe the odds.
The $7.50 is a great price and we expect those odds to firm on race day.
