Raceday focus: Best bets, analysis for the Bendigo program

Herald Sun form analyst Brad Waters runs the rule over the eight-race card at Bendigo on Wednesday.


THORONDOR (Race 5 No. 2 – $7)

Thorondor is a decent price for a best bet but I thought he did a great job when resuming at Cranbourne on October 29. He was easy in betting but stuck to his task well. He looks well suited again at BM64 level.


FOXY FRIDA (Race 2 No. 3 – $3.90)

Foxy Frida did it tough out three-wide and still finished off gamely on debut at Swan Hill last time out. She was well-backed that day and had shown something at the jumpouts. Should go closer with a softer run this time.

SINGLETON PARK (Race 4, No. 6 – $5)

Tipping Singleton Park can make a huge form turnaround back on dry ground at Bendigo on Wednesday. There was plenty to like when he ran on well on debut at Echuca but was all at sea in the wet at Sale. Expecting him to improve sharply.

AREE AL (Race 8 No. 16 – $4.80)

Hoping for another scratching to get Aree Al, the second emergency, into the last race at Bendigo. His form was solid in town last time in with his real blemish being in the heavy ground at Ballarat. His jumpouts have been good and he can win first-up.


BON SPOT (Race 7, No. 2 – $14)

Happy to play Bon Spot each-way in the penultimate race of the day at Bendigo after his effort at Cranbourne last time out. He did a few things wrong among horses midrace but ran on solidly when in clear running late. Expect him to improve further.



The Melbourne jockeys’ premiership leader heads to Bendigo on Wednesday where she will take five rides, including the booking on the odds-on favourite in the opening race.

NANTUCKET (Race 1 No. 5, $2.20), FOXY FRIDA (Race 2 No. 3, $4), KUNA MAGIC (Race 5 No. 9, $3.30), HILLCREST MOSES (Race 7, No. 3 $3.80), PART TIME LOVER (Race 8 No. 13, $8).
