They’ve done all the hard work for you finding the best horse racing tips, so you don’t even have to lift a finger – how nice is that?!
Without further ado, see Dean Watling’s best bet, next best and value bet from around the grounds this Wednesday:
Best Bet - 8. Balkans ($3.20) - Warwick Farm, Race 2
Race 2 is a very competitive contest with 10 of the 12 runners all winning in the previous start. The horse I want to be with is the James Cummings trained Balkans. His first up win was as arrogant and effortless as they come, he idled up to his rivals and went past them in second gear.
He rises in class here, but he has a couple more gears to give. He maps to perfection from the gate to land forward of midfield with the in form Zac Lloyd in the saddle. Under a stronger race pressure and up in distance I believe we again will see a better horse. Hard to beat.
Next Best - 6. Drift Net ($4.20) - Warwick Farm, Race 3
Plenty of nice types look to break their maidens over the 1200m here in Race 3, Drift Net has been the one off the trials that has caught my eye. The 3YO daughter of Exceed And Excel has a lovely action, covering the turf effortlessly. She has had the two smart trials leading into this debut run and looks to have above-average ability.
What I most liked about her trials was her sharp gate speed, that is an essential attribute for a horse to win on debut. Zac Lloyd sticks in the saddle from the trials and is striking at 22.5% when teaming up with James Cummings over the past 6 months. From barrier 2, I suggest Drift Net finds the front or leaders back which is a very positive position in run.
Value Bet - 2. Ithadtobezou ($5.00) - Warwick Farm, Race 6
John Thompson is a very underrated first up trainer; he strikes at over 16.6% over the past 3.5 years with his horses first up in their preparations. That stat reads incredibly well with his 4YO mare Ithadtobezou, who is first up here, coming off the back of two sharp trials.
She wasn’t asked of an effort in her first trial but found the line impressively, her second hit out over 1040m was clearly the better of the two. She ran smart time when pushed out under light riding. She has smart tactical speed and from gate 3 in a race that lacks tempo overall, she can settle up front or just in behind the leaders. With the firm Warwick Farm track and the rail in the true position, I expect settling on speed to be a strong advantage.
