Friday Racing Tips - 24th August
We have identified a few gallopers at Bendigo and Canberra today that look well placed and will prove hard to beat.
Champion trainer Darren Weir has a few handy gallopers going around at Bendigo that should see him walk away with a few victories here today. Our top pick is racing in hot form and going on his victory last start, he will prove hard to beat once again.

Bendigo is racing on a Soft 6 with the Rail out 9m Entire.
Canberra Race 3 - 2:05pm Turners Building Supplies Benchmark 63 Handicap (1080 Metres)
SUNEEZE (NEXT BEST BET) looks perfectly placed to make it three on the trot after winning her past two starts. Weaved between runners and ran on strongly when defeating Zariz No Other by less than a length on this track a fortnight back. Has a good record over the track/distance and looks ready to rack-up the hat-trick of victories here today. Big show expected.
1st: No5 SUNEEZE 2nd: No1 Missed out; 3rd: No7 Tinmine; 4th: No6 The Last Sommet
Bendigo Race 5 - 3:00PM JL King & Co BM58 Handicap (2400 Metres)
Sticking with the ultra-consistent PENTHOUSE PLAYBOY (BEST BET) who chased hard to defeat Cash Sail by 1.5 lengths at Moe a fortnight back and looks perfectly placed to make it successive victories here today. Drawn to get the run of the race and will be very competitive once again. Trainer and jockey have a great strike rate when combining. The one to beat, top pick.
1st: No4 PENTHOUSE PLAYBOY 2nd: No3 Mighty Quinn; 3rd: No8 Oh Baby; 4th: No1 Mutin
Bendigo Race 7 - 4:00PM Newbridge Hotel F&M BM64 Handicap (1400 Metres)
Looks a perfect race for PAGEANTRY to bounce back into the winner’s circle here today after not having much luck last start. Lost balance at a crucial stage when beaten by 3 lengths behind Is Don is Good at Cranbourne -should have finished closer. Will be stalking the pace and flashing at them late. Top hope.
1st: No12 PAGEATRY 2nd: No6 Pamando; 3rd: No9 Christie; 4th: No4 Elle Gagne
Bendigo Race 8 - 4:30PM Hindsight Club BM78 Handicap (1400 Metres)
Hard to go past the lightly-raced HOLY COMMAND that won well resuming from a spell and looks a clear top pick here today. Looked impressive when running away to a 1.7-length victory at Sandown a month back, defeating Eluded. Will be looking to make it four straight victories on the trot. The one to beat, serious galloper.
1st: No6 HOLY COMMAND 2nd: No5 Reserve Street; 3rd: No8 Don’t Get Excited; 4th: No3 Mr Churchill
Bendigo Race 9 - 5:00pm Bendigo Cup 31 Oct Book Online Bm64 Handicap (1600 Metres)
BEGOOD TOYA MOTHER is racing in good form of late and can atone for his narrow defeat at Warracknabeal last start when finishing just out of the placings. Will strip fitter second-up and has drawn to get the run of the race, so look for him charging at them late. Rates well, sticking with him.
1st: No10 BEGOOD TOYA MOTHER 2nd: No8 Knight Star; 3rd: No3 Eaton; 4th: No6 Accreditation
