Feature Race Assessments

The Rating Bureau (TRB) is one of Australia's leading suppliers of horse racing data, software and analysis and Betfair is proud to exclusively share their Race Assessments.

Race Assessment: Australian Guineas

"The scenario looks perfect here for Cliffs Edge to run to a new peak off that 99.6 last start effort and if he does that he’ll be extremely hard to beat."

Race Assessment: Launceston Cup

"For better or worse I’m happy to work around Berisha, Pretty Punk and Eastender who are similarly hard in the market and can win, but have queries that make it difficult to find them at a value price."

Race Assessment: Blue Diamond Stakes

"If he runs as well as I expect then I want profit from that opinion, not lose simply because he went close but didn’t win. With that in mind the best play here is to definitely back Encryption for the win & place."

Race Assessment: Tasmanian Oaks

"Pleasuring is clearly the horse to beat but there are few factors that make me cautious about taking a price too short and odds-on definitely fits into that category. I’d want at least $2.50 to back her."

Race Assessment: Lightning Stakes

"Redzel is clearly the horse to beat and I have no knock on him at all. I don’t see any value in $1.80 about him though."

Race Assessment: Hobart Cup

"The likely winning standard of this race at the weights to be carried will be at least 96 and potentially higher. There are a number of horses with competitive ratings either within or just below that mark."

Race Assessment: Hobart Guineas Stakes

"I’d expect the winner to rate in the 88 - 89 range. This is the first try at this distance for most of the runners so there are a few queries. Historically the Victorian form is a bit stronger than the local Tasmanian form & I’d expect this to be the case again."

Race Assessment: Blue Diamond Previews

The 2018 Blue Diamond series starts this Saturday with the Previews for the boys and girls.

Race Assessment: Australia Stakes

"From the inside barrier, Brave Smash needs to hold his spot in the pair behind the leaders & if he does he should be too classy for them."
