Placing a bet on a favourite – some punters can’t get enough of them, while others steer clear of them. Each week, the Palmerbet racing team will look at some of the more fancied runners for the upcoming weekend’s horse racing and decide whether we are going to love them 😍 or leave ❎ them!
This week we are sticking with a couple of inform gallopers at Caulfield and Doomben, as well as a 2-year-old at Warwick Farm who looks destined for big things 😍. While we are happy to take on a star sprinter at short odds who has had a disrupted preparation before this weeks race at Caulfield, and a promising galloper in Adelaide who is stepping up in grade for the first time. Perennial place getter Champagne Cuddles goes around at Warwick Farm this week, but she will not have any of our money on her until she breaks through again ❎.
Good Luck Punters. 😉
The Mick Price trained filly has won both runs this preparation (below) including a strong last start win at Caulfield despite being caught 3 wide the trip. Is drawn to get a softer run this week for Damien Oliver and is the one to beat again. Money has flowed for her since betting opened this week. Ticks all the boxes.
Crack The Code is the punters' pal today, taking out the first at Caulfield at $1.80 in the Aussie silks! @MickPriceRacing

One of the many horses formerly trained by Darren Weir stepping out for a new trainer this week. Now with the Waller stable, the star sprinter would have gone around at a short quote in the W.J Adams last week before being scratched by stewards. Won 4 on the trot last preparation before failing in the Group 1 Moir Stakes as a short-priced favourite. Will the events of the last couple of weeks affect the sprinter? What impact will the scratching last week have on him? Punters need to take $1.50 to find out. I’m happy to take him on!
Returns from a let up this week after going 2 from 2 late last year. Has trialled well in preparation for this weeks run (below) and has looked well above average in his short career. Jockey Tim Clark should go straight to the front and be very hard to get past on the Warwick Farm circuit. There hasn’t been any backing for any of his unraced rivals, and Time To Reign looks to have those with exposed form covered. He looks the winner.
Time to Reign made his return to the track this morning for @Darby_Racing & @GaryPortelli with an eye catching trial win at Warwick Farm following his two impressive wins last preparation! #hesback #timeforwar #hewillhauntus pic.twitter.com/uUg07LGCAr

While not in the Tom Melbourne or So Si Bon category yet, Champagne Cuddles is building a reputation as a non-winner. The mare has 5 minors in her last 7 starts without a win despite being well supported in the betting in the majority of those races. She drops 4.5kgs on her last start 3rd at Caulfield and Blake Shinn rides for the first time. Expect her to run well but she keeps finding one or two better each week. Will continue to bet around her until she breaks through again.
Broke through for her maiden victory at Morphettville at a short price last start. Stolen Away tired late when winning over the 1400 metres and the step up to 1543 metres this week is a concern as it will be hard for jockey Jason Holder to give her a soft run from the widest gate. She meets more experienced rivals here. I’m looking elsewhere at the price.
The Kris Lees trained mare has found a rich vein of form with 2 wins and a second from her last 3 starts. Has drawn to get a good run for “The Governor” Jeff Lloyd and this isn’t any harder than her previous few runs. is a 4-time winner at the distance and looks the one to beat. I’m on!
