Mini ‘The Punt’ section- Midweek

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Heading into an ok midweek meeting this week and I thought it may be worth mentioning a few horses to follow.

There has been rain and may be more on the way so that is the trickiest part of the meeting! Well that and the fact the rail is out so far.

RAIL- 11m- 1000m-375m.  9m the remainder.- (Weather update – 5.30pm TUES- Should be a fine day..)

**It’s not always the case but a wet Doomben track with the rail out and natural inctinct says tou will want to be on pace, mainly at the start of the meeting, but probably best to not jump to conclusions too early.

(UPDATED 9.10am)

Race 4-

Feel there are four leading chances- The Heathcote pair of TIGER JET coming off the Millions Maiden that should be good form and PUNTERS PRIDE who improved last start. Both have wide gates to content with and that is the only concern.

STRATOJET has been gelded and is the one who may well jump out of the ground. He was a $95,000 yearling and has showed enough to say he can win here.

THESE STREETS (SCRATCHED) for Birchley may well be the horse I’d put on top. Was good on debut and should take great improvement this time in. Can’t see a trial so watch for $$.

With that horse scratched I’d throw in PLAY LUCK for Bryan Guy.

They are the horses I’d be working around and I’d be following positive betting moves for any of them…

Numbers–  3,4,8,11 (in no order)


Race 6:

Don’t want to get heavily involved but JUST BETTY is simply a horse I like. Very consistent, good 2nd up record and has won or placed in 5 of 8. You know what you’re going to get with her and she will be around the money.

INDEX PAGE may be the one at big odds to throw in tri’s etc.



Race 8:

Even type of race but as long as it doesn’t get too wet I’m happy to be on our blackbook horse TYCOON’S HEART. It took Matabrahma to beat her and she did beat Arctic home which would start fav here. She will be on pace but wouldn’t like it too wet.

If it did happen to rain and TYCOON’S HEART didn’t run SWEET LITTLE FILLY could open up some value. She handles the sting out and gets in with 51.5kg.


If slow or heavy- 8- SWEET LITTLE FILLY


**If time permits I will add quadrella numbers around 9.30am QLD time Wednesday.

Here they are, skinny, but hopefully profitable!


1,4 —- 2,5,8 —– 2,4 —- 3

*Good luck, head to for the markets.
