THE Melbourne Punters Show's Anthony Jupp runs the rule over the four jumps races on Sunday's Bendigo card, to be conducted on a Heavy 9 surface.
Race One - URMG Security Maiden Hurdle 3200m
A race big on numbers, but not so on quality and has a long tail.
Try Four ($2.50) and Tremec ($3.40) have the best flat form and deserve to be favourites. Slight leaning Try Four but would want around $2.8 to back him.
Each-way chance at odds for Terry and Karina O’Sullivan is Magnazone ($12/$3.10)
Race Two - Wilson’s Tree Service BM120 Hurdle 3600m
Spilt the field in half as only three can win.
Caron ($3.30) beat Fledged ($3) at Hamilton, then Fledged broke his maiden at Pakenham. At the current prices I’ll be backing Caroun as I expect Fledged to drift and then I’ll save on him.
Western Kingdom ($3.60) has the questionable Cafe Society form from Ballarat, so happy to oppose.
Race Three - Brendan Drechler Hurdle 3600m
Gingerboy ($1.95) should just win. Outstanding flat run last week at Caulfield and this is the race he’s been set for.
Gold Medals ($4.60) the only danger.
Race Four - Ecycle Solutions Mosstrooper Steeple 3600m
Thin race with only 'two-and-a-half' chances.
Sea King ($2.60) franked the New Zealand form by winning at Warrnambool, but this is a very different track. Still a top hope.
Wells ($2.60) ran a cracking third at Flemington behind Master Of Arts and if Gingerboy wins that makes the form even better.
Arch Fire ($3.40) was beaten by Sea King at Warrnambool and will be some chance second time over fences and back to a flatter track.
Race Two: Caron ($3.30) and saving on Fledged ($3 - expected to drift)
Race Three: Gingerboy ($1.95)
Race Four: Wells ($2.60)
Good Luck Punters!
