We’ve got a cracking day of racing all around the country today with G1 racing in Queensland and as well as some quality support meetings at both Rosehill and Flemington.
Billy Bestford has cast his eye across the meetings and has found his best bets to help you have a fill up this Saturday.
Horse Racing Tips: Saturday, May 22nd
Rosehill Race 4
(6) Blondeau looks the bet of the card at Rosehill in my opinion. Think this horse has finally turned the corner after teasing so much ability early on. His first up win was very impressive and usually goes even better 2nd up. This race is no harder than he faced last start.
Rosehill Race 7
(13) Knights Order looks one of the better value bets around the country today. Will be a big improver 2nd up. Finds a weaker race here than last start, and always performs better with a run under his belt. Will roll forward and look the winner at some stage. At the each-way price I will be having something on.

Rosehill Race 8
Pretty keen to be with (11) Ellsberg who looks well suited getting up to 1500m here 3rd up from a spell. Took a sit last start and probably wasn’t completely suited in doing so. Think they will go straight to the front today from the low draw and Tim Clark is the perfect booking to get this horse home.
Flemington Race 4
(2) Heart Of Puissance is one of the tougher horses to catch but we know his best is good enough to win a race like this. Was a moral beaten last start over over 2350m and looks perfectly suited out to 2500m. Finds Jamie Kah and should be able to avoid any hard luck stories today from gate 4.

Flemington Race 8
Hard to ignore the form surrounding (6) Pandemic recently. Was very good behind last week’s Goodwood winner Savatoxl and is well proven up the Flemington straight. Wears blinkers today, jumps to 1200m and finds Damien Oliver which all look massive ticks.
