Geelong Tips October 5

Bennett Racing Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)

Geelong Roughie - Race 4 No. 12 Rippa Buddy

Given his long starting prices and beaten margins in three runs this campaign, Rippa Buddy was always going to be a big quote here, although there has been merit in two of his performances.

With a kinder gate and any luck in transit, the four-year-old would've finished a lot closer first-up, where he received a few bumps and covered ground throughout, yet he wasn't disgraced.

Coming back from a metro maiden third-up, Rippa Buddy was okay late albeit a little wayward after settling in an awkward position, while he now draws low and gets the blinkers on.

Bet365 F&M BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Geelong Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 5 Theycallmebruce

A lightly raced five-year-old from the Danny O'Brien stable, this mare showed ability over the autumn when recording a stylish debut win here before running into a smart Karalee Rocks in April.

Although she wasn't beaten all that far, Theycallmebruce was simply at the end of her prep when contesting a strong BM64 over the Warrnambool carnival and she was spelled as a result.

Having drawn the widest of seven here fresh, there was enough to like about that chasing effort behind a sharp winner, while a softer track, gate two and little more ground here are all ticks.

Roderick Insurance Brokers BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Geelong Best Bet - Race 7 No. 9 Grinzinger Angel

This filly was solid on debut in a strong Cranbourne two-year-old affair back in March, with the daughter of Harry Angel finishing third in a race that produced a subsequent Group 3 winner.

Grinzinger Angel was then tipped out after a failing in an Adelaide Listed affair at start two and off some encouraging lead-up work, she was sent to Casterton for a fresh kill on September 10.

While she beat nothing in that five-length romp, the time measured up well for this grade and given she sat on a strong speed, yet still kicked away late, there was a lot of merit to that victory.

Wilsons Real Estate BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Geelong Value Bet - Race 8 No. 12 Golden Vitrine

Trainer Michael Moroney has this galloper ticking over nicely and now up to the 1720m off two solid performances to open the prep, it does look go time, especially with blinkers on.

After being out-sprinted at Cranbourne first-up, Golden Vitrine picked up again late in that 1400m attempt and then over the mile at Moe, he kept surging late second-up despite a wide run.

Wet ground won't worry Golden Vitrine, a gelding that won his maiden at Geelong on a Soft 6 and while unproven over this journey, he's giving every indication that he'll eat up the extra trip.
