Horse racing tips: Bendigo’s best bets, odds preview with Brad Waters

A colt that had a second last start could do better in Bendigo while champion jockey Damien Oliver is set to be among the winners.

Herald Sun and Racenet analyst Brad Waters runs a card Thursday in Bendigo.

best bet

JOURNALESE (Race 2 #8 – $2.20)

Journalese chased well when he was miraculously beaten into heavy ground in Geelong first. She will be fitter for this and a firmer floor will be ideal for her.

next best

Renew (Race 4 #10 – $2.50)

Renova made it home when she came in second on her debut in February. She had more time to develop and should be better at the start in Bendigo.

ZOUTONS (Race 6 #15 – $6.50)

The Zoutons were scratched from a race at Sandown on Wednesday for this and seemed to fit right in on her home track. You’ve jumped really well before that and it’s going to be hard to beat.

Value bet

ROANOKE (Race 3 #8 – $9.50)

Roanoke could be about to make its debut after its promising debut one last time around. She ran really well in the new last prep Kilmore and could be above the odds for her last assignment.

the Knight

Damian olives

The hero rider heads to Bendigo for five rounds, including two promising Godolphin runners.

CEILIDH (Race 1 #2 – $14), FOUND OUR THRILL (Race 2 #4 – $4.40), Mashrabiya (Race #4 #7 – $7), Burma Al (Race 5 #8 – $8), Pronspa (Race 8 No. 9 – $5).

next week

Geelong will be the stage for Friday’s game before Flemington and Mooy carry cards on Saturday. Hops race will take center stage on Sunday with Mosstrooper Steeple in Pakenham while Echuca is also racing. Warrnambool will hold the flat race card on Monday.
