Wednesday Racing Betting Tips

Some good quality midweek racing action continues today with strong meetings at Warwick Farm in Sydney and Pakenham in Melbourne. 

Billy Bestford has done the form around the grounds to bring you his best bets throughout the day. Read on to find his best bets and analysis and hopefully snag a few winners to get over the midweek hump!

Horse Racing Tips: Wednesday, May 12th

Warwick Farm Race 4

(6) Sixgun is very lightly raced and has been trialling strongly in the lead up to this. Has performed very well on wet tracks, including a first up win followed by a good 5th behind Anders and Ole Kirk last prep. That form is plenty good enough for a race like this and looks well suited here today. Will get back from the wide gate but should be letting rip late. 

Warwick Farm Race 5

(9) Azarmin was enormous last start and you could argue she was a certainty beat that day. Found plenty of traffic when squeezed and bumped at the top of the straight before getting over heels and flying home to just miss. Was really warming up late and powered through the line, catching they and screaming to back her next time.  Jmac takes the ride and so long as barrier 1 isn’t too much of a hindrance, she will be winning. 

Warwick Farm Race 6

(4) Nags To Riches absolutely bolted in first up from a spell and looks a very promising horse for Brad Widdup. Stable has taken plenty of time with her, and has still only had 3 career starts. 2 wins and a 2nd shows this horse has ability and put the writing on the wall last start that she could be in for a big prep. Won on debut by 2 lengths on a heavy 8 so conditions shouldn’t worry. No jockey booked which is a slight concern they may scratch so best to keep an eye. 

Pakenham Race 5

Keen to see (4) Reciprocation resume after being put away following a very good maiden win. Beat Yulong Command comfortably that day and that horse has since gone on to win a few good quality Saturday races. Always got to be wary of this stable producing a good fresh runner and think this horse has plenty of upside. Will also be having something on (1) Marlion’s Dream who also looks smart. Is 2/2 to start his career, with both wins coming this track/trip.

Pakenham Race 6 

Looking forward to (4) All Of Brighton getting a senior jockey on board and dropping back in trip. Was luckless last start in a strong race behind Curran, who has since come out and run a closing 2nd to the smart Ayrton. Will have options from gate 4 and is a strong perform over this trip previously. With even luck, he will be winning.
