Bendigo Best Bets, Predictions & Preview - Sunday, August 11

Country racing is Victoria is headlined by Bendigo this weekend where the rail will be in the true position for the entire circuit. 

An entertaining day of racing is on the cards so let's take a look at who Justin Darcy is backing.

Bendigo Best Bet

Race 3 No. 2 Groot

The colt by Fighting Sun has been against top quality gallopers, running fourth behind I Am Immortal and third behind Prince Of Sussex. 

He won a jumpout at Caulfield impressively on July 30, beating the likes of Better Harden Up and Il Divo. First up last preparation was his best run to date, nearly taking out a stakes race, and first up he is here. 

Barrier one looks a slight concern considering he was slow away in the jumpout, but this galloper certainly looks to have plenty of ability and is absolutely a Saturday class horse.

Bendigo Next Best Bet

Race 5 No. 4 Tigre Royale

Last start he raced here, and could not have been more impressive winning by seven lengths. Trainer Archie Alexander said that he is a Spring horse next year and that the penny is only just beginning to drop.

The track that day was a soft seven, which he will most likely strike something in the heavy range here – which I hold no concerns over. 

Drawing the outside is a concern, but I like to be on the most progressive horses in these 64 staying races as most rivals here are no better than this grade. Tigre Royale is a horse I want to be following not only here, but as he progresses through his races and possibly even rises in distance.
