Wednesday Racing Tips: Ballarat, Randwick & Ipswich Best Bets - 2nd October
Our best of the day goes around at Ballarat and will find this easier than some of the Group 2 and 3 races he’s contested.
Paul Preusker has a boutique training operation but jees he knows how to find a winner. We have given him the task of preparing our best bet of the day. This horse will appreciate the easier assignment that awaits him first-up and if fit enough, he can win this easily.
Ballarat is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 4m 600m-1600m, true the remainder
Ipswich is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 3m 1600m-1200m, 4m the remainder
Randwick (Kensington) is racing on a Good 4 with the rail in the true.
Ipswich Race 2 - 1:43PM Sirromet Class 5 Handicap (1200 Metres)
This horse is a former Victorian which has contested some very strong races in his career. Now based on the Gold Coast, ATLANTIC CITY (ROUGHIE) has had two runs for new trainer Tracy Timbery were less than flattering to say the least. Has had a solid trial at Deagon in preparation for this. Barrier 5 should see him midfield at worst and poised to strike.
1st: No3 ATLANTIC CITY
Ballarat Race 7 - 4:30PM Sportsbet – Foolproof BM70 Handicap (1100 Metres)
This guy is pretty talented and is first-up since June. MARCEL FROM MADRID (BEST BET) has won two from eight career starts but has contested some hot races in that time including a few Group races. Was only 2.65 lengths off Gytrash in the Creswick last start at Flemington and that is very good form for this. Has won first-up in the past and gets a 3kg claim thanks to Lewis German. Classy.
1st: No3 MARCEL FROM MADRID
Randwick Race 6 - 4:55PM Justify@Coolmore Australia Handicap (1100 Metres)
You have to have something on anything Anthony Cummings is training at the moment. NOVEMBER MAN (EACH WAY) is a handy type coming into this off an uncharacteristic run at Rosehill last start when a clear last behind Spanish Dream. He drops in class for this and although has to carry a big weight, he has proven he can do that in the past. Worth an eachway ticket.
1st: No1 NOVEMBER MAN
