Horse Racing Betting Tips

We’ve got a massive day of racing all around the country today with quality meetings at Rosehill and Pakenham to get stuck into. Pakenham will play host to their annual Cup and it looks a good day to have a punt! Billy Bestford has cast his eye across the meetings and has found his best bets to help you have a fill up this Saturday. 

If you'd like even more detail, then head to our dedicated racing site Racing Bet, where we have analysis for every race from Rosehill, as well as odds comparison, video previews and betting strategies.

Horse Racing Tips: Saturday, December 5th

Rosehill Race 1

(8) Shihonka returned to the track with a bang and showed enough there for me to think she may be in for a big prep. Trialled very nicely leading into that first up run and I don’t think she’ll have any issues stretching to 1350m. Will go straight to the front and it looks like she’s going to get her favoured dry conditions. Admittedly a much tougher race here but I think she’s good enough and looks on the up. 

Pakenham Race 1

(7) Tycoon Bec went okay fresh to run 3rd but should take a heap of improvement out of that run. That was her first start for 10 months so she was entitled to tire late. Jamie Kah jumps on and this horse has a bit of upside about her. Happy to be against the favourite who admittedly was very good last start but is much better on rain affected going. Think the mile 2nd up with little speed in the race should set up pretty well for her here. 

Rosehill Race 4

Keen to be with (8) Mr Mosaic here coming into this first up without any trials. He did the exact same thing last prep and went on to win very well over this trip. Hoping he can slot in behind the speed from that barrier and should be in striking distance when they turn for home. He’s undefeated from three first up runs and if you are going to back him this prep, it should be here today. 

Pakenham Race 5

Think (7) Frankie Pinot will be extremely hard to beat here well down in the weights. This horse is as honest as they come and never runs a bad race, having only missed the trifecta twice in 15 career starts. He’ll get back as usual but won’t know himself having to carry just 51kg after the claim and I think this race sets up nicely for him. There’s a heap of horses who like to race on speed so there should be a genuine enough tempo and if Frankie is out in clear air, he has the turn of foot to beat these. 

Rosehill Race 8 

(1) Francesco Guardi has continued to improve at each run this prep and I think today could be the day for him. He was heavily backed last start but just had too much to do. Jmac can have him a touch closer today from gate 4 and 4th up now this horse should be ready to pull out a peak run.
