Best Bets – Wednesday 24th April

Hungerford Hill Mdn

Newcastle Race 2 (900m) 1:25 pm

I do think, given how she has trialled, that this unraced Randwick-trained filly RAINBOW GODDESS looks the play here. She has loads of dash and has also finished her trials off impressively too. From this gate she looks to be able to grab all the favours and should just explode away late.

Callinan Anniversary BM 68

Newcastle Race 5 (1500m) 3:10 pm

Love a horse on his home track and one in form. The topweight here SAILOR fits that bill. He stormed home to win a BM 64 last start and it was here. He loves racing here and excels on a damp track. Should be flying home today to win from EDGE OF REWARD also a last start winner in a similar race.

Lees racing BM64

Newcastle Race 6 (1890m) 3:45 pm

It would seem rather fitting that trainer Kris Lees would win a race named after his family and I think he can. He saddles this improving 3YO filly who is Queensland Oaks bound if she wins this. Her name is TRAJECTILE and she claimed a maiden on a heavy track over 1500m here last start. Her mum is a Gr 1 Oaks winner and this looks a perfect stepping stone for her.

Sharp Mdn

Newcastle race 7 (1250m) 4:20 pm

Tricky draw for this talented 2YO MOGUL MONARCH to overcome but he has speed so may well be able to cross them from here. Was solid on debut when 2nd and was well tried that day so there is confidence about him. Should be hard to beat along with the unraced Captain Furai as they charge home. That one race experience will help him late.

Geelong Race 7 (1212m) 4:30 pm

Interesting overnight betting moves. ETINCELLE opened up a $2.70 fav and many expected he would shorten up following his impressive Sandown win last start. But, he hasn’t. He’s blown like the Fremantle Doctor and was $4.80 at 10am this morning. In contrast, RUSSIAN FRONT has firmed from $8 into $5.50 even though he led and weakened at Caulfield last start over 1400m to finish 12th. Comes back in trip and the money for him has been telling. Quinella them.
