TURF TRAGICS WEEKEND BEST- 16/12.
As always, TT provide you with their best of the day for avid punters looking to have a bet to kickstart the weekend!
Saturday brings a great day for racing at magnificent Caulfield.
Best Bet: Caulfield, Race 4 #6
: Vinland ($2.20). Was TT’s Best Bet a couple of weeks ago and didn’t let us down, once again appears a class above, not carrying top weight either so that’s a tick. ATONE (10) a win and second to Vinland last start reads well, the other main competitor.
Next Best: Caulfield, Race 5 #1
: Mrs Gardenia ($3). Last 4 reads 2-1-2-1, carrying top weight is the query. Has won at 1600 twice so can handle 1700m, prefers a Good track and will be hard to hold out. GUIZOT (6) form reads real well with a close second to Night’s Watch last start and drops in grade.
Best Value: -Caulfield, Race 6 #5
: Lycurgus ($7.50). Has good form at the track with 5 starts with one win and two places, and has been in the finish in every start at the distance, forgive its 4th at Ballarat last start as it prefers a Good rather than Soft track.
-Caulfield, Race 8 #2
: Thermal Current ($7). Leading metro jockey Damian Lane aboard and 3rd, 5th and 2nd in its last 3 reads promising. The standout factor is 4 wins from running second up, and it is second up today.
-Caulfield, Race 4 #2
: Angelucci ($21) - Place. Given TT tipped Vinland as its Best Bet in the same race, we think the South Australian horse can figure. Has been brought over to Caulfield after racing in SA it’s previous starts, is 1 from 1 at the distance, and Lloyd Kennewell is one of the leading Adelaide trainers and not too often his horses run in Victoria, so he must see something in it to be bringing it over. Place chance.
-Caulfield, Race 1 #13
: Via Regina ($12) - Each Way. Race 1 always the toughest to read given no form on majority of the horses, but given Via Regina has drawn the inside gate, a foal from Snitzel, and Hayes & Daberning’s expertise in training 2 year old horses, it should go very close.
Best of luck punters, hopefully a few winners today!
