Yarra Valley Tips March 29

Lilydale Instant Lawn BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Yarra Valley Value Bet - Race 4 No. 9 Geraldine’s Jewel

The mare recorded a string of defeats over a variety of distances, having made her seasonal debut over 1000m at Warrnambool in September.

Those efforts included a five-length fifth in an 1850m Benchmark 58 handicap at Terang in December after which she was freshened.

The daughter of Helmet suggested that her fifth career win wasn’t far away when a good two-length third in a Restricted 58 handicap at Wangaratta at the start of this month.

Geraldine's Jewel raced from off the pace before finishing strongly when racing over 1500m that day and she duly registered that fifth win when racing at Kyneton next time.

The seven-year-old came home a length clear of her rivals that day and jumping from barrier six, she looks value to complete a double with Jarrod Fry retaining the ride.  

United Petroleum Country Trainers Final Tips (Race 5)

Yarra Valley Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 8 Oh Too Good

The daughter of All Too Hard lacks the experience of her rival,  but she has shown plenty of ability in her two starts to date.

Oh Too Good made the perfect start to her racing career when getting home by half-a-length in a 1200m maiden at Pakenham February 8.

Racing on a Good 4 track that day, the mare raced close to the speed before getting the better of a solid benchmark in Miss Cardannic.

The form of that contest is working out well with third home Prince Prawn and tenth Master Of Mischief both going on to salute subsequently.

Kevin Daffy’s representative led beofre losing out by less than a length in a Class 3 at Pakenham subsequently and the Damian Lane engagement takes the eye here.

Bet365 Country Oaks Tips (Race 6)

Yarra Valley Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Let’sbefrankbaby

The four-year-old has shown good form at a higher level in the past, including when registering a third in the Group 3 Auraria Stakes at Morphettville in April last year.

Let'sbefrankbaby was beaten just over a length into third when racing over 1800m on a Soft 5 track that day and she went on to win her next two starts.

The second of those outings saw her return to Morphettville to deliver a narrow margin victory when contesting the Group 3 SA Fillies Classic over 2500m the following month.

While the mare raced on a Heavy 8 that day, she has shown that she handles a sound surface including when breaking her maiden at Sale.

Trained by Robbie Griffiths & Mathew de Kock, Let'sbefrankbaby is expected to have improved for her fourth-place finish at Caulfield Heath first-up this prep.

Bet365 The Country Discovery Tips (Race 7)

Yarra Valley Feature Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Brudenell

Kris Lees’ representative has demonstrated strong form in metro company this prep by three times, including on two of his last three starts.

Two of those three successes have come at Randwick, including when getting home by a narrow margin in a 1000m contest there three starts back. 

Brudenell delivered arguably a career-best effort in being beaten less than two lengths into fifth in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield subsequently.

Jumping at odds of $21 in the Oakleigh, the gelding had a couple of his rivals here behind him in Recommendation and Rey Magnerio.

The four-year-old confirmed that this distance is no issue when saluting in a ten-runner renewal of the Bel Esprit Stakes at Caulfield last time and an inside draw here is big tick.
