Best bets from West Australian form expert
There is nothing like a home ground advantage. Punters tend to know their local tracks better than any other and it usually shows in their betting performance. Accomplished punter Sandgroper is living proof of this theory having amassed a very respectable 11.5% profit on turnover from Western Australian metropolitan tracks over the past 12 months.
Punters betting $100 the nose are up over $2,650 following his tips over this time.
Sandgroper is a regular punter at theGreatTipOff.com and shares his selections for you to follow here. Here are some of this best bets for Saturday's races.
Sandalwood - Ascot R8 No.11
This Fred Kersley-trained gelding caught the eye running on strongly down the outside at Pinjarra on a day that suited front-runners closer to the rail. The four-year-old is only lightly raced but looks ready to score third-up and gets suited extra ground here.
Tavisfaction - Beaumont Newcastle R7 No.11
She has done very little on the track and was well beaten in a short course trial recently. In the following trial she stepped up to the 1200m and showed a lot of speed, dominating from the front. A very uncharacteristic Waller trial too but reckon the great trainer has worked her out.
Get On The Grange - Randwick R4 No.3
Second-up after running over an unsuitable 1400m. His last 600m sectional was bettered only by the winner which indicates that the Allan Kehoe-trained gelding has come back in good order.
King River - Flemington R6 No.9
A victim of the tight-turning Moonee Valley circuit at his recent outing. Could he have won the race? That’s debatable, but what we do know is he was never out of second gear for the majority of the final 600m and appeared to have plenty to offer after being well fancied in on-course betting.
