HORSE RACING TIPS – 9th May 2015

HORSE RACING TIPS – 9th May 2015

Huge profits last weekend thanks to a lovely big multi winner. We were very close to making it plenty more, but places are all part and parcel of the horse racing caper. Got to take it one the chin and move on. The positive news is we are on the right track and only need that slice of luck. Maybe today.




Outside of getting odds early, the best way to maximise your wins is to have an online bookie that gives you the ‘BEST OF’ markets. We prefer Bet365 because it gives you the BEST of the totes OR the fixed price, and always seem to have the best FIXED odds. BANG!

We recommend placing 1 unit each way on those with suitable place odds ($1.80 or more). Otherwise it is 2 units on the nose or 1 unit for multi’s.



DOOMBEN (Doomben Cup Day)

RACE 1 – Col ’N’ Lil

The top two are the ones to beat, but Col is building nicely for this. The extra distance will suit here and she gets a nice weight claim. Bit of value hanging on her too.


RACE 3 – Traveston Girl

Second up, well drawn and well weighted. This is a group 1 placed horse that should be right in this.


RACE 4 – Neo

This isn’t a strong race so I will stick with Neo to get us consecutive wins.


RACE 5 – Wicked Intent | Pepperano | Secret Sage

This is an incredibly tough race but I will have 1 unit on each of the three. WICKED INTENT is a ripper first up and has never lost at Doomben. Munce stays on but barrier 12 is his only concern. If he jumps and sits near the front he will be in the finish. PEPPERANO looks to have come back in stela form winning by 1.5L first up. Will appreciate the rise in distance and drops 3kgs on that run. She is drawn perfectly and is a real chance at odds with some luck in the straight. SECRET SAGA has only failed once in three starts, and on that occasion she couldn’t lead. I like horses that lead at Doomben so if she can get to the front she will be exceptionally tough to chase down.


RACE 6 – Charlie Boy

Is an honest group contender who drops in weight here and drawn perfectly. Must start well and prevent the block in the straight. If he does he will be too good.


RACE 7 – Hopfgarten | Foreteller

HOPFGARTEN is a favourite of mine for a long time now. Last start was better than it seems where he stokes up nicely late on the slow. Extra distance will suit and I will have a sneaky poke at the massive odds. Wide barrier should be ok if he can jump and press forward. This is his toughest test though so there is risk, although if he wins I will lose my shit. Join me on the ride! FORETELLER was tough last start and looks primed for this. I’ll have a go at both at massive odds.


RACE 8 – Our boy Malachi

A dozen chances in this but I am well and truly sucked into the Malachi whirlwind. Seventeen wins from 19 starts will do me, and he just keeps delivering. He will go forward and at Doomben the straight is short so they will be hard pressed to catch the big QLDer in his toughest test.




RACE 4 – Alberto Magic

Building a very nice record now, and recently won a trial by 18L over 900m. Yeah that’s right, I wonder if the other horses stayed in the barriers. Nonetheless that is good enough for me.



RACE 5 – Holy Delusions

Almost guaranteed to place first up in this race but I will take her on at crazy odds of $9. Perfect barrier should see a nice sit and a sneaky inside run…Just watch!



RACE 8 – Sense of Occasion

This is the acid test here for this lad. Looks to have come back in super form and will find the 2000m perfect. Get’s in nice at the weights and only has to overcome the wide draw to be a real chance at odds. Will be charging home.




RACE 3 – Brave Journey

Was solid enough at Caulfield first up. Should go very close over the slightly shorter trip back on her home grass.


RACE 6 – Silent Whisper (DANGER Éclair Choice)

The top weight is a favourite of mine so this could bite me in the arse. Nonetheless, Silent Whisper’s run last start was superb coming from 16th to 3rd over 1100m. Will be fitter for this and his odds at $21 are crazy overs.


RACE 7 – Delicacy

Can’t back anything else here. She is as tough as nails and has a super sprint after the distance. Holds her form she wins.


RACE 8 – Duibio

Absolutely flying. Wide barrier should worry and he will be motoring home over 1600m.




RACE 5 – Liberty’s Gem

Comes in nice at the weights here and drawn to suit going forward. Will be a battle of the front runners and I think Leberty is ready.


RACE 7 – Rebel King

Looks to have come back with his early form. Will push forward from the outside and they will have trouble outsprinting him.
