With the Gelding off sunning himself on the beaches in Hawaii, our guest tipster ‘the Gambler’, has set himself to try and out tip the Gelding at Caulfield today. Unlike the Gelding, a few of the Gambler’s tips have some odds to them.
Race 2 Horse 8 – La Praline Race 3 Horse 13 – Little Tycoon Race 4 Horse 11 – Metonymy (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 6 Horse 1 – Heart of Dreams (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 7 Horse 6 – Acorns
The bookies may have got the cash last week but the confidence to bounce back is sky high with some good mail around for today with a mix of favs and e/w value awaiting.
Race 1 n9 EMERALD DOWNS e/w The mail around this morning says this neddy is ready to run a race 1st up. The fav PHENOMENAL LASS will be hard to run down but I’m happy to bet e/w on our pick.
Race 2 n6 JUST THE TONIC 2 sources have told me how impressive this neddy has been on the track since running great sectionals winning.
Race 5 n2 SMART MISSILE I usually leave it to the Gelding to tip the really short priced horses to keep the win/bet ratio up but this is an exceptional animal who has been training the house down and should be backed at any odds. The only horse to ever finish in front of Sepoy. Oh, and don’t back it e/w
Race 6 n5 HUME e/w Poor ride in Bris last start and has blinkers and Munce on to help.
Race 7 n7 GYBE e/w Freshened up since winning 3 on the trot and G Boss should be able to give it a soft run just behind the pace.
1st Heeza Bonza, 2nd Danish Rock, 3rd Spirit of Choice. Danish Rock was beaten by about five lengths but fought on well for second, kicking again in the straight to fight off the challenge from Spirit of Choice.
A wonderful start to what, is hopefully, a long and successful racing career!!
Listeners to Sportzfan Radio will have heard the Professor and the Gelding talk about Danish Rock, a horse they have an interest in.
Today is the big day….Danish Rock has his first start at Echuca in Race 1, the Criterion Hotel Rochester over 1200 metres. He is Horse 3 and has been well drawn at barrier 4 in a field of fourteen. The current odds are at 10/1.
Too bad the Gelding is in Hawaii and will miss the horse’s debut!
The Gelding’s attention turns to Moonee Valley with a lovely day almost fitting for the Spring Carnival which is just around the corner.
As always the bets are on an each way and all up basis.
Race 1 Horse 2 – There’s Only One Race 3 Horse 4 – Mythical Spirit Race 5 Horse 4 – Hallowell Belle (for the ladies at the Tennis Club)
Race 7 Horse 5 - Definitely Ready (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)
I hope you followed the mail last week and like me had a huge fill up with 3 winners all at black figures. If only every week was like that. A heavy track at ‘The Farm’ today has me a little cautious. I’m content to have just the one bet today and make it either a baked beans or lobster dinner.
Race 7 n1 ELITE FALLS Based on ratings this neddy is the best bet along the eastern seaboard today. Has a ton of class on this lot and has trialled super. I’m playing up 50% of last week’s winnings on this.
Have been out Rosehill way this morning. Some interesting mail abounds. Confidence level today is sky high. Make Foxwedge your biggest and best bet.
Race 2 n1 FORETELLER We were on this at $6+ when it won impressively 2 weeks ago. I am told it has thrived since. Very short in betting however.
Race 4 n2 SWEETEST MELODY Won when resuming and keen judges said it had plenty of improvement in it.
Race 5 n2 FOXWEDGE I will be loading up on this neddy. Has won brilliantly 1st up previously and has trialled super. Also happens to be the best horse in the race. $2.3 available this morning with the corporate bookies. I’m salivating!
Race 6 n10 SEE THE WORLD e/w Just a little something on this neddy e/w. It has a light weight and is very fit. Double figure odds still available.
