Horse Racing – Love It Or Leave It | Sat 31st July

Placing a bet on a favourite – some punters can’t get enough of them, while others steer clear of them. Racing writer Justin Devine looks at some of the more fancied runners for this weekend’s horse racing and decides if he loves them 😍 or if he should leave ❎  them!

LA CHEVALEE was a dominant winner over 1800m at Randwick last start and looked to have plenty up her sleeve on that occasion. She is the best bet of the day. I’M THUNDERSTRUCK is a galloper with plenty of upside who will relish the extra ground at Moonee Valley, while ELOQUENTLY can make it six wins on the bounce at Eagle Farm😍.

DANERO returns to Adelaide this week and finds a very winnable race. The extra distance and weight is a concern and I will be betting around him at Morphettville. CANASTA and ZARATITE have been expensive horses to follow in recent weeks. I’m prepared to back around the pair at Belmont and Randwick respectively❎.

Good Luck Punters!

Randwick R3 – 2. La Chevalee @ $2.60 😍

LA CHEVALEE savaged the line to bring up a much-deserved win last start (below) after a frustrating run of placings this prep. Back over the same trip and in the same class today, the Maher and Eustace trained mare looks too good for her rivals again. The 2kg claim for apprentice Tom Sherry is the cherry on top! She is the best bet of the day.

BET ON RANDWICK RACE 3 HERE:

Moonee Valley R5 – 1. I’m Thunderstruck @ $1.95 😍

I’M THUNDERSTRUCK came from well back to win impressively at Flemington last start over 1400m and the 1500m this week looks perfect around the Valley. The 3yo likes the cut out of the ground and champion jockey Jamie Kah retains the ride. Expect him to come with a strong run at the turn and give his rivals windburn! He is one to watch into the future. Yes, please!

BET ON MOONEE VALLEY RACE 5 HERE:

Eagle Farm R9 – 1. Eloquently @ $3.10 😍

With five wins in a row, it is impossible to fault the form of ELOQUENTLY. The 3yo filly ran down “spruik” horse MIAMI FLEISS comfortably last week and looks ready to stretch out to 1300m. Drawn to get all the favours in the run, jockey Anthony Allen just needs to get into clear running at the top of the straight. ELOQUENTLY will do the rest! Winners keep winning. Yes, please.

BET ON EAGLE FARM RACE 9 HERE:

Randwick R6- 2. Canasta @ $3.20 ❎

CANASTA is “almost” there!  With four wins and two seconds from five runs this campaign the 5yo has been an expensive horse for punters. He drops back to 1500m this week and carries 61kgs. He has missed his chance to win this time in. No thanks.

BET ON RANDWICK RACE 6 HERE:

Belmont R1 – 3. Zaratite @ $1.70 ❎

ZARATITE has gone down as an odds-on favourite at his last two, having no luck at his last start when the Wizard Pike got too cute in the run home. I’ve been burnt too many times by the Peters/Williams prepared stayer. No thanks.

BET ON BELMONT RACE 1 HERE:

Morphettville R6 – 3. Danero @ $2.90 ❎

DENERO ran on strongly over 1600m at Flemington last start and drops in class to a BM78 Morphettville this week. The market suggests the step up to 1800m will be ideal BUT the 6yo will need to carry 5kgs more this week. No wins in his last five runs hasn’t got me rushing out to back him, despite the inform Jessica Eaton taking the ride. No thanks.
