Bendigo Tips October 7

National Hotel BM 70 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Bendigo Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 10 Miss Five Hundred

After two strong runs for the prep, she came out at her las start to finish second to Zoffala at Sale in what was a good run by her.

Fourth-up and a 2.5kg weight swing on the favourite could be the difference between winning and finishing another placing.

She also steps up to the mile and a half, which favours her being a daughter of Dundeel and a grinder when it comes to showing a long turn of foot.

She should be able to find a spot nearer to midfield and can get the job done at a nice price.

Apiam Animal Health BM70 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Bendigo Value Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Think 'N' Fly

This gelded son of So You Think was okay first-up when buffeted around and possibly not as fit as he needed to be for the 1400m assignment.

He steps up to the mile, a trip where his record shows is most effective, being three from three, including a BM70 3YO win.

He was tested at stakes level at the end of the prep but was found out over 2000m and with one run too many.

Damien Oliver has a great affiliation with him, being aboard for all three wins and last starts eighth.

With the right breaks, this horse will show he is different quality over the mile.

Brougham Arms BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Bendigo Best Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Just Jake

The 15-20mm of rainfall expected will suit Just Jake, with his two best performances coming on rain effected tracks.

He was extended to the mile last start, a trip which he clearly did not run out, so he has been frehsened up for six weeks and finds himslef back over 1400m.

The form from his last win was franked with Dirty Deeds coming out and winning, so it would be a surprise to see him outclassed.

The wide gate is the only concern, but assumng he may head straight to the front as we saw two back, he can prove too good in the wet once again.
