Ben’s Best – 29th June 2020

No comments

Form analyst Ben Beare gives his daily bets for Follow him on Twitter.

Odds are correct on at the time of publishing.


He ran well on debut at Mornington when running 2nd behind Cosmosnip. The form has since been franked with the 3rd placed horse Sacer Vates winning his next race start. A repeat of that performance would see him winning this. I am also having something small on #14 ALLOUT STROPIE I have tipped him a few times now as a rough hope after showing something in his trial.


It was some time ago now, but I liked the trial from Competitor at Traralgon. He looked to travel well enough and there was a handy galloper like Sansom as a good guide. He won his most recent jump-out but not sure he beat much there, trusting the trial. I gave LEGEND OF ZORRO a hope last start in what I think will turn out to be a strong maiden. He did not have the best of luck being stuck wide but still looked strong through the line and will be competitive here. I will also have a mental health bet on #8 OLYMPIC POWER, I have tipped him a few times now, I am sure he has ability and he missed the start last start. If he won and I did not have anything on, it would send me silly.


Yulong Song will be very hard to beat but I do not like tipping/backing one at odds on when there is something that is eachway odds that has a chance. Miss Meilland contested a few races last preparation that rated very well on the clock for maiden class. The latest jump-out did not look that flash but hoping she needed the hit-out.


He won at big odds last start, beating Zanshin who I believe goes alright. It is fair to say he did not show much in his previous starts, but he did trial ok against some decent types in his trials. He looks to enjoy the wet ground and he gets that here again.


This filly did not have the best of luck on debut when being held up behind a few in the straight. She was then slightly disappointing at her next start, but she was a mile back on the turn and did run home in the fastest last 200m of the race. She looks to be screaming out for the extra distance she gets here.


ALBURY R3  #5   SAINT HENRY $43.00    #11 SUNRISE RUBY $11.00

Saint Henry went into the black book when he trialled against Jodhpur and stuck on with that galloper under a bit of riding. He has been a bit disappointing since but could show up at odds, first-up from a spell. I thought SUNRISE RUBY trialled well behind a pretty handy galloper in Vinnie Vega. She was not asked for much of an effort and seemed to do it under her own steam.


This two-year-old filly comes out of the same trial as the above tip Sunrise Ruby and beat that galloper home. As I mentioned above Vinnie Vega is a decently galloper on his day. The interesting thing is the trainer has opted for the class 1 instead of going to a maiden, could be avoiding the clash with Sunrise Ruby or may also think this filly has more ability.
