Meet the team of pro punters here

Racing Watch – 

John Walter – @J_Walter23Canterbury Race 1 #1 Crown Him

Walter Says: “Won a fairly soft Goulbourn maiden first up in trying conditions. Went straight to a BM70 second up and give his chance. I thought he was very weak late there against the slow tempo. Now dropping back slightly in grade but rises in distance and weight. Off an inside draw will be awkwardly positioned which adds up to being a great risk at his early quote.”

Champion Bets – 

Nathan Snow – @snowbetCanterbury Race 5 #6 Allzin

Snow Says: “Was heavily backed last start in a similar style of race and it was hard to make too many excuses for a disappointing run. Happy to risk here in a very even race with others better suited stepping up in distance.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingFormBendigo Race 3 #1 Magnarock

Baker Says: “Doesn’t feature highly in our overall time / sectional ratings and is in a race where there appears to be many other ‘lightly raced’ winning chances. Carries top weight and does not appear to have the tactical speed from barrier seven to take up a good position in running. Its chances may improve should the track condition worsen significantly, but assuming that does not happen, we are happy to suggest laying this runner at around $3.50.”

Ratings2Win –

Paul Daily – @PaulD01Doomben Race 1 #3 High Specs

Daily Says: “Had an uncontested lead last time second up when allowed to run along (3 lengths below PAR) for the first section to the 600m before being run down in the straight. Whilst there was a decent gap to third that day, the step up to 1350m should pose no problem, but she has yet to face a race with some early pressure which looks like the scenario today. Her rating last start gives her some chance but the $3.10 in current fixed odds markets make her one to oppose.”

Queensland Trials –

Chris Nelson – @qldtrials  – Doomben Race 1 #10 Husson Boots

Nelson Says: “Strikes an open Maiden today coming off a last start second at the Gold Coast when appearing to have every chance leading the winner Navy Gal in a slowly run affair. She meets stronger opposition here and although likely to gain a good run from her inside draw will have to show a lot more fight which I’m not convinced she’s capable of doing. Happy to take her on.”

Horse Racing Professionals –

Dean the Trial Spy – @DeanTrialSpy   – Bendigo R10 #2 King Of England

Dean Says: “Way down in class on his first up run but carries a number of ‘red flag’ queries into this race. Had a 522-day break before the first up run beaten 3.9 lengths at Caulfield and hung out and was erratic in the straight. He’s a 7yo coming off an injury enforced layoff at the top of the weights jumping 5kg on last start and maps to get back from a wide gate. None of the trainer stats with this profile of horse show a positive POT. It has the class so can win, but not the type of profile to follow for a favourite.”
