Champion Bets NZ Selections: Saturday 2nd April



Awapuni & Riccarton Strategy

Rain forecast at all venues this Saturday, so track conditions should be monitored prior to investing. Staking is based on a 100 unit bank (so 1 unit = 1% of your betting bank).



R7 Fairdale Studs Fly | 1400M

8. Mabeel: Big effort last start after missing away in strong race and put up two huge runs prior over the Trentham carnival. Spratt just needs to get him over from the draw ok to take this out.

Betting Strategy 

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Mabeel for 2 units, min price $2.50 on dead 5 or better track.


R3 Bullerites 3YO | 1000M

1. Enzo’s Lad: Nice when winning here back in February over 1200m running time, back to 1000m should be no problem with his early pace and looks the benchmark here.

8. First Serve: Impressive trial prior to soft debut win here, pretty green but looks to have a bit under the tank and is the biggest danger to the stablemate.

Betting Strategy 

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Enzo’s Lad for 1.25 units min price $4.00 on a good track

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) First Serve for 1.65 units, min price $3.00 on a good track

R5 NZWTA LTD-BM75 | 1400M

6. Bruegel: Still doing plenty wrong, but still winning races. Beat a pretty decent benchmark last start at Wingatui running time. Home track on Saturday, still no guarantees to put it all together, but that may not  matter.

3. Big Hoss: Strong travelling front runner who is probably best over the mile, but fresh up today over the 1400m may well get an uncontested lead and be tough to catch.

Betting Strategy 

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Bruegel for 1.5 units, min price $3.50 on a good track

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Big Hoss for 1 unit, min price $5.00 on a good track
