Harness racing tips incoming! Dabble’s very own Tim O'Connor has broken down the racing for this Wednesday. Searching high and low, they’ve found our loyal Dabblers the top three harness racing bets of the day. They’ve done all the hard work for you finding the best harness racing tips, so you don’t even have to lift a finger – how nice is that?!
Without further ado, see Tim O'Connor's best bet, next best and value bet from around the grounds this Wednesday:
Best Bet - 4. Strapping Red ($3.60) - Geelong, Race 6
This is one of the harder meetings I’ve covered, but we must come up with a best bet and in Strapping Red we trust!
Craig Demmler’s pacer hasn’t raced since July but has trialled up nicely for this event with a recent third placing to Private Eye, who won in style at Melton on Saturday night.
The four-year-old mare races well at Geelong – one of her two career wins came at this track when she led and charged clear to score by 20m in May – and looks well suited here, particularly given she's a chance to lead from gate four.
Next Best - 8. Triple Vinnies ($4.00) - Geelong, Race 9
This is a two-year-old event late on the card and I fancy the chances of Triple Vinnies.
Geoff Walker's juvenile has put in some eye-catching efforts during his six career starts, most notably when second to the handy Smoken Ace at Melton in September and last time out when he paced roughly around the turn before sprinting hard for third at Ballarat.
He looks to have wins in store, strikes a suitable race and looks a good play at the price.
Value Bet - 12. Dicko Dixon ($126 / $16) - Geelong, Race 2
I was originally very keen to back Sellune in this race, but the more I watched the replay of his last start effort at Terang, the more I think Dicko Dixon is the one we should be having something on.
Both horses made a mistake at the start last week, but it was Dicko Dixon who lost more ground yet still finished with quicker closing splits (the fastest final 800m and 400m of the entire race) in the run to the line.
Sellune looks a great winning hope in this at $4.60, however it's much more enticing to have something on Bob Kuchenmeister's trotter at $126 and $16.
He doesn't win out of turn, but this is a low-grade event and he's good enough to cause an upset with the right run in transit.
I'll be small the win and heavier the place.
