Suggested

Chequered Flag (No.2) & Sweet Lullaby (No.7)

Dangers

Refectory (No.4) & The Other Half (No.8)

We get to Day 3 punters and the petrol tickets are starting to wane a little bit and gee, I am really looking forward to getting home to my own bed but first of all we need to have a winning day on the punt. It has been a frustrating two days I can tell you. Yesterday in particular was riddled with close seconds from Tee Train, Hostar and Ascot Red. So we are thereabouts but just not landing any knockout blows at the moment. Hopefully the wheel turns. I am going to rip through this preview as I have to get to the course early to do some work for the club. The track has stayed in the soft range and there was some rain about last night but the forecast for today has improved significantly so I don’t think it will get too much wetter unless that rain arrives. I am kicking off in the first race and looking forward to seeing Chequered Flag get back over the jumps. He has been good in his two runs over the jumps a while back but then was racing so well on the flat he stuck to that caper for a while. This looks an ideal race for him and even though short around the even money quote I think he can kick us off on the right note. I will save on Sweet Lullaby who also showed a bit in her first jumping campaign when last in work including a strong win at Coleraine. She comes into this first up and looks to have a bit of upside in this caper so will save on her.

Betting strategy

I will have $80 the win on Chequered Flag here and save with $15 the win on Sweet Lullaby!

Suggested

Little Hot Missile (No.4), Kuramae (No.11) & She’s A Karaka (No.13)

Dangers

Navarre (No.5) & Three Legs In (No.10)

This is a handy race for the two year olds here. The local Kuramae has come up favourite and looks hard to beat off what we have seen her do at her past two runs. She chased strongly behind a smart one at Terang last start and that should have her primed for this race here. She gets the winkers on for the first time and I can see her being quite hard to beat. She draws well for Willy Pike who will be keen to get a winner on the board here at the carnival. Of the first starters I am going to save on Little Hot Missile and She’s A KarakaLittle Hot Missile was given a solid hitout behind Ginny Ann at Terang recently who won on Tuesday and there wasn’t a whole lot between them so based on that I am happy to be saving on Little Hot Missile. She’s A Karaka has had a couple of quiet trials and if the speed is on she might be the one that can sit back and run over the top of them. She might be better over a bit further but I think she can run well here and worth saving on at double figure odds.

Betting strategy

I will have $60 the win on Kuramae and save with $15 the win on She's A Karaka and $10 the win on Little Hot Missile!

Race 3

Suggested

Loricain (No.2)

Dangers

Kings Brook (No.3) & Whyouask (No.6)

This is a small field for the fillies and mares here over the 1400m. Loricain was given a quiet jump out at Terang recently where she came down the outside rail seemingly with plenty still in the tank. She is a promising mare who certainly showed plenty of talent in her debut campaign. Some of that best form was over longer trips but being locally trained and with that quiet jump out under her belt I reckon you might see her come into this race pretty fresh and ready to fire over the 1400m. I have a fair bit of time for her and if she is here to win the race then I think she is going to be very hard to beat so keen to be in her corner here and she looks one of the better bets of the day around that $3 mark.

Betting strategy

I will have $70 the win on Loricain here as a stand out bet!

Race 4

Suggested

Labuan Star (No.2) & Run Gypsy Run (No.5)

Dangers

Satori (No.3) & Grandview Avenue (No.10)

This is a small field here for the sprinters but it is an intriguing little race. Six runners over the 1100m but it would be hard to rule any of them out. Run Gypsy Run is being trained by Mick Price down here at Warrnambool so I dare say Matty Williams has had a fair bit to do with her and her two recent jump outs at Terang have been really sharp. She is a good fresh mare and typically races best that way. I think she will land on speed for Ollie here and be pretty hard to hold out. Labuan Star hit the line well first up at Bendigo and has been kept on the fresh side for this. I think he is one that will be suited by the small field. He should land just off the speed coming a bit wider and with only a few to get past might be really dangerous. I think he will run well and happy to be with him but probably wouldn’t talk you out of backing too many here.

Betting strategy

I will have $40 the win on Run Gypsy Run here and save with $30 the Winton Labuan Star!

Race 5

1:15pm

Suggested

Midas Prince (No.4), Elusive Rose (No.15) & Skyway Star (No.16)

Dangers

Delos (No.9) & Dunman (No.10)

This is a big field here but a race that does have a bit of depth. I have been following Skyway Star all campaign and you just felt there was going to be a race at The Bool that she would be set for and lets hope this is the one. She is a three year old filly that still looks to have plenty of upside and she hasn’t run a bad race at all really this campaign. I think she might have a bit of scope about her and could potentially go on to better races than this which is something you probably can’t say for a lot of her rivals so pretty happy to be with her here. She draws a nice middle gate for Mallyon too which should see her land not too far off the speed and she is the one to beat. Midas Prince chased Timor Gold strongly at Terang last start. That form held up reasonably well yesterday. Midas Prince beat Arty Lucas home and that horse ran a brave third after being wide yesterday. I think Midas Prince looks well placed here stepping up to the 2000m and happy to save on him. I thought the best roughy in the race might be Elusive Rose. This filly ran really well here at The Bool first up before winning well here second up and the form from that race has been strong with a few subsequent winners. She then went to Adelaide and wasn’t disgraced when making up ground in the Port Adelaide Guineas. I think she can run well here around the $20 mark and happy to have something small on her.

Betting strategy

I will have $65 the win on Skyway Star here, $20 the win on Midas Prince and $10 the win on Elusive Rose!

Suggested

Robbie’s Star (No.3), Like The Clappers (No.8) & Bea Tempted (No.10)

Dangers

Meteor Light (No.4) & Accreditation (No.9)

This race is over the 1700m and I think we see a pretty smart horse go around here in Bea Tempted. I actually backed her at Flemington last campaign where I thought she was a moral beat and she looks to have come back well this time in. She resumed with a dominant first up win at Pakenham and we have seen Vinland come out and win since that run who finished second to her. She just looks a nice progressive horse on the way up and the fact she was able to win first up over 1400m gives me a lot of confidence here that she should be hard to roll stepping up to the 1700m. I know this is a serious punting website but sometimes you need to have a bit of fun and lets be honest are you really at The Bool if you aren’t having a bet on Robbie’s Star and Like The Clappers. They are a couple of local gallopers that seem to lob at this carnival every year. Unfortunately I am not sure it is going to be wet enough for either of them in particular Robbie’s Star but I have to be saving on them just in case as I would kick myself if either of them were to salute. Pretty confident we see a good horse though in Bea Tempted.

Betting strategy

I will have $100 the win on Bea Tempted here and save with $10 the win on Robbie's Star and Like The Clappers!

Suggested

I’ll’ava’alf (No.4) & Spying On You (No.5) & Slowpoke Rodriguez (No.6)

Dangers

Zed Em (No.1) & Gold Medals (No.2)

This is a cracking edition of the Grand Annual. What a spectacle this is going to be. Zed Em is going to run along out in front and everyone will be trying to run the champ down. Can they do it? I think Slowpoke Rodriguez can. He has just been going through the line really strongly at his last two starts and I think he can be saluting here. He was unlucky in this race two years ago and I think he can make amends today. Spying On You has been chasing Zed  Em home at his last couple and I think he is going to relish getting up to the 5500m. I think he is certainly the best outsider in the race and should run well at odds. I am also going to have something on my old favourite I’ll’ava’alf. I thought he found the line OK on Tuesday but probably needed that run and he might take a lot of improvement out of that into this race so will keep him on side.

Betting strategy

I will have $60 the win on Slowpoke Rodriguez here and save with $15 the win on Spying On You and $10 the win on I'll'ava'alf!

Race 9 - Warrnambool Cup

3:55pm

Suggested

Sampson (No.2), Grand Dreamer (No.6) & Light The Waves (No.12)

Dangers

Furrion (No.1) & Azuro (No.7)

This is the big one of the day. It is the Warrnambool Cup. I have to admit the field this year doesn’t look overly strong and I found it a pretty difficult race to dissect. If it wasn’t The Cup I would probably nearly steer clear of it. But you can’t really come to The Bool and not have a bet in the Cup. I thought Light The Waves looked a pretty good bet at the double figure odds. She has won her last two in Adelaide and has done so in good fashion. She is down in the weights, fit, in form and draws a nice middle gate for Barend Vorster who is taking South Australian racing by storm. I am happy to be with her around that $10 mark. I am also going to save on Sampson and Grand Dreamer who both come into the race second up. Sampson was good in a fast and hard run race at Flemington on Anzac Day and backs up here. I thought he loomed to win that race but just peaked on his run late. With that extra fitness on side he should improve and run well here. Grand Dreamer is an interesting runner. This is a race he is certainly capable of winning. I thought he found the line nicely first up in the Terang Cup and while I would like it a fraction wetter for him I can still see him running a big race so happy to save on him.

Betting strategy

I will have $30 the win on Light The Waves, $20 the win on Grand Dreamer and $15 the win on Sampson!

Dangers

The Thick Of It (No.6) & Skidman (No.7)

The joys of the last race last year when there was a horse going around called Fifty Stars who was a moral. That is not the case this year. This is near on impossible to finish on. But it is the last so lets hope we are signing off with a winner. Pakaya Prince won here two years ago I think this last race. He comes into the race fresh will be up on speed and looks to find a winnable edition so happy to be with him. Leila’s Star is flying this time in as is the stable this week. I don’t think the wide draw is in anyway a negative for her and she looks a good price at close to double figures. Mai Shiny Choice is first up here and has jumped out well at Terang recently. He has come up around the $20-30 mark so happy to have something small there. I will also have something on Kodakhan down the bottom. He broke through for an overdue win last start. He draws low and should get a soft run in behind the speed and the Preusker team are obviously going really well so happy to have something on him.

Betting strategy

I will have $35 the win on Pakaya Prince, $25 the win on Leila's Star, $20 the win on Kodakhan and $10 the win on May Shiny Choice, blasting out a bit in the last!

Dangers

Delos (No.9) & Dunman (No.10)

This is a big field here but a race that does have a bit of depth. I have been following Skyway Star all campaign and you just felt there was going to be a race at The Bool that she would be set for and lets hope this is the one. She is a three year old filly that still looks to have plenty of upside and she hasn’t run a bad race at all really this campaign. I think she might have a bit of scope about her and could potentially go on to better races than this which is something you probably can’t say for a lot of her rivals so pretty happy to be with her here. She draws a nice middle gate for Mallyon too which should see her land not too far off the speed and she is the one to beat. Midas Prince chased Timor Gold strongly at Terang last start. That form held up reasonably well yesterday. Midas Prince beat Arty Lucas home and that horse ran a brave third after being wide yesterday. I think Midas Prince looks well placed here stepping up to the 2000m and happy to save on him. I thought the best roughy in the race might be Elusive Rose. This filly ran really well here at The Bool first up before winning well here second up and the form from that race has been strong with a few subsequent winners. She then went to Adelaide and wasn’t disgraced when making up ground in the Port Adelaide Guineas. I think she can run well here around the $20 mark and happy to have something small on her.

Betting strategy

I will have $65 the win on Skyway Star here, $20 the win on Midas Prince and $10 the win on Elusive Rose!

Dangers

Meteor Light (No.4) & Accreditation (No.9)

This race is over the 1700m and I think we see a pretty smart horse go around here in Bea Tempted. I actually backed her at Flemington last campaign where I thought she was a moral beat and she looks to have come back well this time in. She resumed with a dominant first up win at Pakenham and we have seen Vinland come out and win since that run who finished second to her. She just looks a nice progressive horse on the way up and the fact she was able to win first up over 1400m gives me a lot of confidence here that she should be hard to roll stepping up to the 1700m. I know this is a serious punting website but sometimes you need to have a bit of fun and lets be honest are you really at The Bool if you aren’t having a bet on Robbie’s Star and Like The Clappers. They are a couple of local gallopers that seem to lob at this carnival every year. Unfortunately I am not sure it is going to be wet enough for either of them in particular Robbie’s Star but I have to be saving on them just in case as I would kick myself if either of them were to salute. Pretty confident we see a good horse though in Bea Tempted.

This is a cracking edition of the Grand Annual. What a spectacle this is going to be. Zed Em is going to run along out in front and everyone will be trying to run the champ down. Can they do it? I think Slowpoke Rodriguez can. He has just been going through the line really strongly at his last two starts and I think he can be saluting here. He was unlucky in this race two years ago and I think he can make amends today. Spying On You has been chasing Zed  Em home at his last couple and I think he is going to relish getting up to the 5500m. I think he is certainly the best outsider in the race and should run well at odds. I am also going to have something on my old favourite I’ll’ava’alf. I thought he found the line OK on Tuesday but probably needed that run and he might take a lot of improvement out of that into this race so will keep him on side.

This is the big one of the day. It is the Warrnambool Cup. I have to admit the field this year doesn’t look overly strong and I found it a pretty difficult race to dissect. If it wasn’t The Cup I would probably nearly steer clear of it. But you can’t really come to The Bool and not have a bet in the Cup. I thought Light The Waves looked a pretty good bet at the double figure odds. She has won her last two in Adelaide and has done so in good fashion. She is down in the weights, fit, in form and draws a nice middle gate for Barend Vorster who is taking South Australian racing by storm. I am happy to be with her around that $10 mark. I am also going to save on Sampson and Grand Dreamer who both come into the race second up. Sampson was good in a fast and hard run race at Flemington on Anzac Day and backs up here. I thought he loomed to win that race but just peaked on his run late. With that extra fitness on side he should improve and run well here. Grand Dreamer is an interesting runner. This is a race he is certainly capable of winning. I thought he found the line nicely first up in the Terang Cup and while I would like it a fraction wetter for him I can still see him running a big race so happy to save on him.

I will have $30 the win on Light The Waves, $20 the win on Grand Dreamer and $15 the win on Sampson!

The joys of the last race last year when there was a horse going around called Fifty Stars who was a moral. That is not the case this year. This is near on impossible to finish on. But it is the last so lets hope we are signing off with a winner. Pakaya Prince won here two years ago I think this last race. He comes into the race fresh will be up on speed and looks to find a winnable edition so happy to be with him. Leila’s Star is flying this time in as is the stable this week. I don’t think the wide draw is in anyway a negative for her and she looks a good price at close to double figures. Mai Shiny Choice is first up here and has jumped out well at Terang recently. He has come up around the $20-30 mark so happy to have something small there. I will also have something on Kodakhan down the bottom. He broke through for an overdue win last start. He draws low and should get a soft run in behind the speed and the Preusker team are obviously going really well so happy to have something on him.

Betting strategy

I will have $35 the win on Pakaya Prince, $25 the win on Leila's Star, $20 the win on Kodakhan and $10 the win on May Shiny Choice, blasting out a bit in the last!

We get to Day 3 punters and the petrol tickets are starting to wane a little bit and gee, I am really looking forward to getting home to my own bed but first of all we need to have a winning day on the punt. It has been a frustrating two days I can tell you. Yesterday in particular was riddled with close seconds from Tee Train, Hostar and Ascot Red. So we are thereabouts but just not landing any knockout blows at the moment. Hopefully the wheel turns. I am going to rip through this preview as I have to get to the course early to do some work for the club. The track has stayed in the soft range and there was some rain about last night but the forecast for today has improved significantly so I don’t think it will get too much wetter unless that rain arrives. I am kicking off in the first race and looking forward to seeing Chequered Flag get back over the jumps. He has been good in his two runs over the jumps a while back but then was racing so well on the flat he stuck to that caper for a while. This looks an ideal race for him and even though short around the even money quote I think he can kick us off on the right note. I will save on Sweet Lullaby who also showed a bit in her first jumping campaign when last in work including a strong win at Coleraine. She comes into this first up and looks to have a bit of upside in this caper so will save on her.

This is a handy race for the two year olds here. The local Kuramae has come up favourite and looks hard to beat off what we have seen her do at her past two runs. She chased strongly behind a smart one at Terang last start and that should have her primed for this race here. She gets the winkers on for the first time and I can see her being quite hard to beat. She draws well for Willy Pike who will be keen to get a winner on the board here at the carnival. Of the first starters I am going to save on Little Hot Missile and She’s A KarakaLittle Hot Missile was given a solid hitout behind Ginny Ann at Terang recently who won on Tuesday and there wasn’t a whole lot between them so based on that I am happy to be saving on Little Hot Missile. She’s A Karaka has had a couple of quiet trials and if the speed is on she might be the one that can sit back and run over the top of them. She might be better over a bit further but I think she can run well here and worth saving on at double figure odds.

She is a promising mare who certainly showed plenty of talent in her debut campaign. Some of that best form was over longer trips but being locally trained and with that quiet jump out under her belt I reckon you might see her come into this race pretty fresh and ready to fire over the 1400m. I have a fair bit of time for her and if she is here to win the race then I think she is going to be very hard to beat so keen to be in her corner here and she looks one of the better bets of the day around that $3 mark.

She is a good fresh mare and typically races best that way. I think she will land on speed for Ollie here and be pretty hard to hold out. Labuan Star hit the line well first up at Bendigo and has been kept on the fresh side for this. I think he is one that will be suited by the small field. He should land just off the speed coming a bit wider and with only a few to get past might be really dangerous. I think he will run well and happy to be with him but probably wouldn’t talk you out of backing too many here.

I am also going to save on Sampson and Grand Dreamer who both come into the race second up. Sampson was good in a fast and hard run race at Flemington on Anzac Day and backs up here. I thought he loomed to win that race but just peaked on his run late. With that extra fitness on side he should improve and run well here. Grand Dreamer is an interesting runner. This is a race he is certainly capable of winning. I thought he found the line nicely first up in the Terang Cup and while I would like it a fraction wetter for him I can still see him running a big race so happy to save on him.

Betting strategy

I will have $30 the win on Light The Waves, $20 the win on Grand Dreamer and $15 the win on Sampson!

The Thick Of It (No.6) & Skidman (No.7)

The joys of the last race last year when there was a horse going around called Fifty Stars who was a moral. That is not the case this year. This is near on impossible to finish on. But it is the last so lets hope we are signing off with a winner. Pakaya Prince won here two years ago I think this last race. He comes into the race fresh will be up on speed and looks to find a winnable edition so happy to be with him. Leila’s Star is flying this time in as is the stable this week. I don’t think the wide draw is in anyway a negative for her and she looks a good price at close to double figures. Mai Shiny Choice is first up here and has jumped out well at Terang recently. He has come up around the $20-30 mark so happy to have something small there. I will also have something on Kodakhan down the bottom. He broke through for an overdue win last start. He draws low and should get a soft run in behind the speed and the Preusker team are obviously going really well so happy to have something on him.

Betting strategy

I will have $35 the win on Pakaya Prince, $25 the win on Leila's Star, $20 the win on Kodakhan and $10 the win on May Shiny Choice, blasting out a bit in the last!
