YESTERDAY wasn’t our most successful day on the punt, however we did manage to land the trifecta in race eight at Sandown Park which paid a respectable $50.70 with our recommended online bookmakers.
However, we are quite confident we can atone for yesterday’s efforts, with our resident tipster Brad Bugeja busy studying the form to find plenty of winners to get your weekend off to a winning start.
Race 6: Kiltah Magic
Kiltah Magic has been racing in good company of late and she is much better than her form suggests. She loves racing from wide draws and with a fast beginner and keen railer drawn in box six, she should be afforded all the breaks in the run to the first bend. She is likely to be around the $3.50 mark with BetOnline and that is great odds for a chaser of her quality.
Race 2: Oakey Boy
Oakey Boy hasn’t really impressed in his two Victorian runs but he did score a sizzling 22.69 Bulli win in April and if he can reproduce that type of form he will take some catching. Last time out he exploded out of the boxes at Ballarat over the 450m journey but he got a little tired in the run home. He is better suited back to this journey and at the $7 mark he is well over the odds.
Race 8: Brazen Bull
Brazen Bull is taking on some very talented types today but when he steps cleanly and is given clear running, he is capable of reeling off sizzling sectionals and he could get the cash at big odds. Two starts back he showed a tremendous turn of foot when scoring at Horsham in 27.47 and if he can sit outside the one and two early, he will have the speed to cross mid race. He may get reeled in late but at the $13 fixed with BetOnline he is definitely worth an each way ticket.
Race 7: 1 to rove with 6 & 7 ($2 for 100%)
Alpha Achilles was desperately unlucky here last week and from the red draw tonight he should step a lot better and make amends, if he avoids bother he should finish in the top two.
Big Yellow Taxi has won six of 13 here and she has the speed to lead for a long way, she will be big odds and could add some value.
Whirly Way has the class edge and she is suited to the wide draw, with some luck in running she won’t be too far away at the end.
Race 8: 2/6,7/Field ($10 for 100%)
Leg 1: 1,4,7 – Leg 2: 7,8 – Leg 3: 1,2,3,6,7 – Leg 4: 1,2,4,5,7
