With yet another exciting weekend of horse racing action taking place all over Australia, Sunday morning promises to offer a string of eye-catching meetings from the likes of Dubbo, Pioneer Park, Bunbury, and Bendigo.
On that note, for those of you who are looking to put on a weekend flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of noteworthy tips that are certainly worth keeping an eye out for on Sunday morning.
5:50 AM – Dubbo – Race 6
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at the Class 2 HCP (1000m) at Dubbo. In a field that really doesn’t hold much depth, it is incredibly hard to look past the bookmakers’ favourite on Sunday morning.
Despite eventually finishing at the back of the pack at Randwick on what was a soft track in the Highway Class 3 a fortnight ago, WHAT THE FUSS has already scored a victory in his prep and is enjoying quite the run.
Beating VALARIAN by almost a length at Wellington in a Class 1 meeting over 1100m last month, trainer Kody Nestor also saw WHAT THE FUSS win in conceiving fashion at an open trial at Narromine.
With a reputation for enjoying his previous trips to Dubbo, the Nestor camp should be confident of extending on a 16.7% win percentage on Sunday morning.
06:45 AM – Bendigo – Race 6
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to CatanachsJewelers BM64 at Bendigo. Putting in what was another stellar display on a synthetic course at Pakenham Park over 2200m on Friday morning, FIELDS OF YULONG also only just missed out at Cranbourne after finishing just a neck behind the winner.
Holding a place percentage of over 57%, trainer Chris Waller saw his four-year-old stallion pick up a convincing victory at Mornington in the Maiden Plate back in October. Taking the win or placing in four of his last five starts, there is no doubt that the mood in Waller’s stable will be on a high heading to Bendigo this weekend.
While TIGRE ROYALE (17/8 with Paddy Power) might open Sunday’s meeting as a favourite with the bookmakers, we’re expecting late money to come in for a talented FIELDS OF YULONG.
