Facts & Tips

Betting facts from Flemington, Saturday, 3rd. October.

You know the Spring Carnival is getting into the swing of things when just one favourite salutes in a nine race program. That winning favourite was Light Vision, which started at $2.60 in the 2500 metres The Bart Cummings. Bart Cummings attempted to win "his own race" with Naval Escort which was sent out as third in the betting, starting at $9.50. No doubt plenty of Carnival punters bet on it. Naval Escort finished twelfth in the field of 13, more than eight lengths behind the winner.

As for the other eight favourites, only three of them, Pellizotti, $2.40, Tribunal $3.40 and Rightfully Yours, $6.00, managed to run a place. (Finish in the top three.)

It's also worth noting that Nicholas Hall rode a treble. The winners in order were:

R4: Light Vision $2.60
R7: Efficient $26.00 ($32.00 best tote.)
R8: All Silent $13.00 ($16.00 best tote.)

Betting fact from Randwick, Saturday, 26th. September.

Sometimes the more a horse wins, the better the odds it is!

Mr Clangtastic was entered in a Group 3 Handicap over 2400 metres at Randwick last Saturday. It had won its previous four races. Mr Clangtastic also had won its only two starts over 2400 metres which were also recently at Randwick. Despite winning its previous race, the Listed Wyong Cup, on a Dead rated track, punters took a set against the 6YO gelding and decided that it was only a wet tracker and would not handle the Good rated Randwick track. Other punters probably used the theory that after four wins in a row it was “due to lose.” Whatever, in a field of just 11, $7.50 was bet with the bookies on Mr Clangtastic which of course won again. Whenever generous odds are available about horses with good recent winning form it’s worth keeping in mind the rule of thumb that “Winners keep winning and losers keep losing.”

Betting fact from Caulfield, Saturday, 19th. September.

Three jockeys rode a double at the Caulfield meeting. When last did that happen? They were:

Jason Maskiell, a three kilos claiming apprentice, continued on with his great form. He also rode a double the previous Saturday. His winners were:

R1 Tribunal $2.30 favourite
R2 Romneya $3.60 favourite

Glen Boss. The winners were:

R4 Irish Lights $3.40 favourite
R6 Turffontein $15.00

Craig Newitt. The winners were:

R3 Rightfully Yours $4.80
R7 Heart Of Dreams $10.00

In contrast to Jason Maskiell at Caulfield, followers of Kerrin McEvoy’s short priced horses might have been tearing their hair out at the Rosehill meeting. McEvoy finished second on $2.45 favourite Melito, second on $2.35 favourite Serenissima and fourth on $3.50 second favourite Kanzan. McEvoy also finished third on Disco Dancer $6.00. However McEvoy’s loyal supporters were rewarded with a win on Drumbeats which started at $7.50, while McEvoy also managed to get Heraklion, $13.00, into third.
