Bendigo Tips

This Wednesday we are racing at Bendigo with the headline of the card race six, which contains a number of promising fillies.

The rail is five metres for the entire circuit and the track will race firm which is crucial for our bets for the afternoon.

Bendigo Favourites

Race 7 No. 11 Sora - $2.60 via BetEasy

This daughter of I Am Invincible already has a city win to her name at Moonee Valley.

She comes into this race first up off a long spell, but has had a jumpout at Flemington on September 29 to prepare for this race.

She looked a quality animal last time in and, you get the feeling that the stable have some bigger plans in store for her later in the spring.

An inside gate looks a positive and she will sit herself on the speed and out of trouble.

Bendigo Roughies

Race 3 No. 5 Virtuous - $11 via BetEasy

She broke through at Moe last start over this trip and she can certainly make it back-to-back wins in this small field.

She gets in here with the minimum weights and is proven in this distance range, whereas some of the more fancied chances now need to make that step up.

She gets around this track with a second placing here to her name and at $11,  she is worth a small gamble.

Bendigo Best Bet

Race 4 No. 2 Heart Of Grace

It is not often you see a horse come in from $34 to $4.40 in a  metropolitan market, but that is what this ex-Japanese galloper did.

She did not run up to market expectation, but struck a very wet track in the pouring rain which you could see she didn't handle.

She has since had a trial at Hawkesbury and was successful on much drier ground. 

She has always crossed the border and popped into Anthony Freedman's stables which is a big change.

I am making he ray best because of her being well-backed last start and the fact she will improve on dry ground.

Bendigo Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 8 Backpedal

She put the writing on the wall at her first start when she bolted in on the synthetic by around seven lengths.

She then went to Moonee Valley and was competitive in Stakes company against Loving Gaby who is a chance in a Manikato Stakes. This form is elite for a race like this.

Her natural running style is to lead and, from barrier one she will get her opportunity to take up the running from Knowles.

There are a few progressive fillies in this race, but this one has some x-factor about her and can stamp her authority with an all the way win.

We will be backing Heart Of Grace with the bigger side of the budget as my confidence is high with the stable change. 

We will also back Backpedal as she has some x-factor about her.
