Wangaratta (Friday) Betting Preview & Tips

Betting tips for every race at Wangaratta. Today’s best bet is in race 7.

Wed, 11 Apr, 10:12 AM


Jungle Queen showed she was on target with a strong effort first up to run a close second to Miss Norway over 1100m at Sandown on March 28.

The three-year-old filly was beaten in a head-bobbing finish that day when at good each-way odds at $7.50. She will be tighter in the betting today in the Seventh Race, where she drops back into country class and will lack nothing in horsemanship with Linda Meech replacing Craig Williams. She has a wide alley in 14 but has the pace to overcome and looks a good bet on the day.

The false rail is at the True Position and the track is rated perfect as a Good 3 (Wednesday). With fine weather forecast the track rating should remain unchanged.
