Lays of the Day review
Ugly speed maps were the reasoning behind last week's lays of the day.
James Beeson certainly gave punters some good analysis here and once again landed one of his two lays.
His first lay was the $4.20 favourite Order Again in Eagle Farm Race 3.
And this was spot on.
From the wide gate, Order Again faced a tough task to get back and then run on with a big weight.
He was brave to finish 3rd.
Beeson's second lay was Kolding in Eagle Farm Race 5.
It was similar reasoning here, with Kolding starting from a wide barrier and needing to run on in a race where little speed was expected.
Kolding proved himself the class runner however, getting home for a strong win in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas.
Early Market Movers Review
This popular article presents tips based on the way the market reacts after prices open early in the week.
It's proven to steer punters in the right direction, but did little last Saturday.
While two of the eight tips were scratched, none of the other six selections were able to get the win.
The smart money was way off this time.
Best Bets for Saturday races review
This is the article where we collect the best bets from three of our leading tipsters.
Yet again they resulted in an overall profit.
This was largely thanks to the efforts of Michael Gannon, whose tips were right on the money.
Free racing tips from Michael Gannon
Randwick Race 9: #2 Quackerjack
Gannon pointed out the fact that this son of Not a Single Doubt was the class runner in the race.
And with a recent second-placed finish behind Kolding, he had all the form coming in.
Punters thought so too, crunching it from an initial quote of $3 all the way down to $1.90.
It won comfortably.
Eagle Farm Race 6: #7 Prince Fawaz
Gannon cited the fact that this horse would appreciate the big Eagle Farm track, especially with a good barrier draw.
And Prince Fawaz proved this analysis correct, winning at the good odds of $4.
You would've got an even better price if you jumped on with Gannon at $4.80.
Free Racing Tips from Ben Beare
Randwick Race 1: #3 Lanigera
Coming in off a strong trial, Lanigera looked the goods.
However, the Godolphin runner could only manage a disappointing 5th.
Swan Hill Race 1: #7 The General
Free Racing Tips from Matt Buckland
Randwick Race 3: #9 Madame Pauline
Flemington Race 8: #4 Iconoclasm
The stats all pointed to Iconoclasm.
Buckland wrote "he arrives here with a three from three record over the distance and has won two from two at the track and distance."
Unfortunately, this didn't translate on race day, with Iconoclasm finishing 5th.
