Happy Australia Day readers! There is a massive amount of racing on today, so we’re going to give our best bets for the three top meets which are at Caulfield, Warwick Farm and Eagle Farm.
I like the look of Spinney in race 2 at Caulfield. I’ve backed him in his last two starts, one of which he won. In his last start he finished 3rd. There’s already been a bet of $3,000 placed on him at $4.20 and he’s currently paying $3.20 on Sportingbet.
The next best bet is race 5 no. 4 Eclair Mystic. This form lines in this race is actually quite exceptional. Eclair Mystic’s form is right up there with them with 1X13. Punters have come hard for this exceptional horse and have placed multiple bets in the $1,500-$3,000 range. He is currently shortened up at $2.60 on Sportingbet.
Race 7 No. 5 Varenna Miss. With form of X11X this horse has looks set to rack up another victory in this 1100m race at Caulfield. Bets in the range of $2000-$6000 have already been placed on this horse and is currently paying $1.90 on Sportingbet.
Another horse worth taking a look at is Bossdon City which is Race 3, No.4. Just the one start and looks set for a big race today.
Our best bet for Warwick Farm today is Our Boy Lukas which is No. 2 in Race 5. This 6YO Gelding has now won over 100k in career prize money. Even though recent form isn’t spectacular I expect him to win today.
The next best bet is 6 No. 1 Strike One. I’m willing to give this horse one more chance after several second place finishes in recent times. He is carrying a hefty 59kg but he should have the class to beat the rest of the runners.
Race 7 No. 3 Clam Chowder. This horse is on fire! Winning her last 3 starts, this mare has pace, and lots of it.
Clam Chowder – Best bet of the day.
We aren’t as confident in our Eagle Farm bets are as we are with the Brisbane and Sydney meets, so punters please take that into consideration is you are going to be following our picks today.
Our first best bet is Race 3, No. 7 Son of Benny. He has no finished 4th in his last four starts but is in with a solid chance here today against this field. Consistent performer and should go close to the money.
Race 4, No. 7 Sheza Hero. This Darryl Hansen trained horse won it’s second last race and today has Chris Munce on board. I think she’ll be too good over the 1500m at Eagle Farm today.
Race 7, No.12 – Thefifthhole – Smashed them by 4 lengths last start and in for a good show today.
That’s it for our best bets today at Caulfield, Warwick Farm and Eagle Farm. I hope you all back some winners and have an awesome Australia Day. There is nothing more Australian then having a beer and a punt.
