UNFORTUNATELY we couldn’t get the job done yesterday but I like Bendigo’s card today and I think we should bounce back and get a collect. It’s not a massive price today but it looks to be a very safe investment.
Leg 1 – Bendigo – Race 4: Sofa So Good To Place (Top Two Finish Required) $1.50
Sofa So Good has been a quality provincial chaser for quite some time now and he looks well placed in this veterans affair. There is a fair bit of speed in one and that should allow him to drive through in the run to the first turn and he should balance up in the top two. He is quite strong in the run home over this journey and the only danger will be the powerful Nockabout Aussie. He is currently $1.50 fixed for the place but might be worthwhile taking the middle tote as you might be able to get a tad better.
Leg 2 – Bendigo – Race 8: Belena Jake To Place $1.57
Belena Jake is perfectly placed in the pink draw and with an even getaway he should run a monster race. He tends to step better from wider draws and there isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn directly underneath him, so I’m expecting him to assume control probably after around 80m or so. He is fairly strong in the run home and he has great winning prospects, however for the multi I think the place option is safer.
Leg 3 – Bendigo – Race 12: Black Driftwood To Win $2.05
Black Driftwood had a long time on the sidelines and since returning he has won two of three for his new trainer Jason Thompson. He likes to scout very wide in his races and he is armed with a dazzling turn of speed. With average beginners all around him he should get all the breaks in the first 50m and he should put them away before they reach the first corner. The $2.05 is massive odds at present and I’m expecting him to start around the $1.75 mark, so take the early odds with Bet365.
Multi Price = $4.80 with Bet365
