The Punters Guide returns after a good day yesterday, with multiple winners. We have a strong list of competitive races for the Swan Hill Punters Guide today – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Our last guide can be found HERE
Race 1 – SHJC BECOME AN 18/19 MEMBER MAIDEN 1600m
Despite there being no value in this runner, the best in the race is Savoie. Dean Yendall and D.K.Weir combine here for what maps as an early winner for this potent duo. Others in the race to keep an eye on are the talented Badge Of Honour and Mango Delight, who both can hit the line hard.
Top Pick – Savoie
Next best – Badge Of Honour
Longshot – Mango Delight
Race 2 – BET365 3YO MAIDEN PLATE 1200m
Dean Yendall and D.K.Weir are looking to do Yendall and Weir things early on here at Swan Hill with another top rated runner up again here in the second. Kaplumpich was running well before a spell with back to back seconds, and today has a chance at getting that elusive win here in a weaker field than last start. One to beat. No Emotion and John Allen are another to look out for in this one, trained well in the lead up to this one and is ready to go. Win wouldn’t shock. Grande Marengo with Jake Noonan in the saddle is another at odds that will be right in this race. If Yendall can’t get the favourite to fire up fresh – Grande Marengo will be there to take advantage.
Top Pick – Kaplumpich
Next Best – No Emotion
Longshot – Grande Marengo
Race 3 – HYGAIN MAIDEN PLATE 1200m
Carbone put in some ordinary trials, but, there was one that stood out, when not asked to do much and finishing ahead of the rest. Draws well here in this race and will be able to roll forward. Untested over this range, but, has looked more than capable. Top chance. Sentimentalist is the next best here. Coming in fresh after a spell, and has placed on both first-up efforts previously. Has shown a good turn of foot and a win wouldn’t surprise here. Dean Yendall could be on course for an early hat-trick here on the unrated Sky Lace. Sky Lace is one of those horses that had a middle of the road trial, but, wasn’t really asked to do much when finishing fourth. Needs to be included here.
Top Pick – Carbone
Next Best – Sentimentalist
Longshot – Sky Lace
Race 4 – MURRAY DOWNS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB 2100m
Ameriwin and Linda Meech combined well for a strong win last start, and, the duo look primed again here today. Small field and will do well to avoid trouble. Showed a good turn of foot last start when fighting on strong for the win. Danger horse is definitely Hifranc, but, in this small field, Ameriwin should be more than capable of capitralising.
Top Pick – Ameriwin
No next best – No Third Dividend
Race 5 – THE BOTTLE O SWAN HILL BM58 975m
Dean Holland has one of the top rated rides here today in this race in Stolen Time. Coming in here with good form behind it, the Time Thief mare may finally be hitting her stride here at the age of six. Distance suits here and is one of the top chances. Liam Riordan has the next best here in Va Bene Amore. Struggling for form at the moment, but, three of four career wins were at this distance and time ratings map well here. Win wouldn’t shock. Aldo’s Gold drops in class here today and is going to be riding just off the lead horses. Will be a stalker in this race and has struck against this class and distance previously.
Top Pick – Stolen Time
Next Best – Va Bene Amore
Longshot – Aldo’s Gold
Race 6 – POOLES ACCOUNTANTS BM58 HANDICAP 1600m
One of the top weighters here will have a good chance at winning this race. Michael Poy and Set The Bar High have drawn well, will look to roll forward and sit with the lead pack. Poy will look for cover throughout and , if he can get it – it will increase the chances of winning here. Will need help, but, has the ability. Savvy Star is the next best here. Another combination of Yendall and Weir here, who could be in for a good day at Swan Hill. Savvy Star comes in on the back of a nice third at track and distance last start and, with that experience, Yendall and Savvy Star will be able to go better here. Mywordsaidthebird drops slightly in class, but, has every chance again here today. Strong third last start, winner at distance and class. Win wouldn’t surprise here.
Top Pick – Set The Bar High
Next Best – Savvy Star
Longshot/Value – Mywordisthebird
Race 7 – MANANGATANG CUP 13TH OCTOBER BM58 1200m
Stylish Missile is hard to look past here despite the short quote. Drops in class on the back of a very impressive second at Donald. Expected to go better here against this field of runners. One to beat. Linda Meech returns to ride Captain California, who she rode in for a strong second last start, carries the same weight here as last race, and, will be fitter second up here. True chance. Michael Poy and D.K.Weir combine for a value point in this race with Cheeky Reward, who’s name could be what its backers receive. Slight drop in class from last race, where it wasn’t suited by the speed, comes into this one better for the drop and can surprise here.
Top Pick – Stylish Missile
Next Best – Captain California
Longshot/Value – Cheeky Reward
Race 8 – TAC BE RACES READY BM64 HANDICAP 1300m
Linda Meech will be looking to close out the day here at Swan Hill on the very impressive Yulong January. Very eye catching win on debut last start, stepping up in class but will be more than capable to handle it here. Distance suits and drawn well. Ticks a lot of boxes. The Lohnro gelding, Snipes is a danger horse here, running fresh with Daniel Staeck in the saddle maps very well here. Drops slightly in grade from last ride, but, is first up here today after a spell, yet to win first up – but today could be the day. Pretty Mama is the value point in this race with fresh legs and a strong gait. Awkward barrier draw, but, can overcome this early on with good speed. One of the chances.
Top Pick – Yulong January
Next Best – Snipers
Longshot – Pretty Mama
