Brisbane Winter Horse Racing Carnival Betting Tips
Brisbane Winter Horse Racing Carnival Betting tips
The Brisbane Winter Horse Racing Carnival is now in full swing. Last Saturday at Eagle Farm five favourites won from the eight races. That was a real surprise. The Brisbane Winter Horse Racing Carnival is usually like Duck Hunting Season. It comes around once a year. The totes and the bookies are the hunters. The punters are the ducks and get killed as they part with their money.
The Brisbane Winter Horse Racing Carnival has usually been very tough going for punters betting and finding winners. Here are some reasons which have stood the test of time.
1. Bookmaker betting percentages are usually significantly worse than the totes' none too generous 120%.
2. There are often big fields and many conflicting form lines.
3. The races are usually wide open affairs with at least six to eight very serious winning chances.
4. Rain often interferes. Track conditions often vary from week to week which makes lining up the form that much tougher.
5. The leading Melbourne and Sydney jockeys, who are better than most of the Brisbane jockeys, add another variable when assessing horses' winning chances.
As a general rule, shortish priced favourites should be avoided. Have a look at how the favourites fared last week at Eagle Farm. With such an outstanding week for favourites' punters we wouldn't be betting on that happening again this Saturday.
