Saturday August 31st

Caulfield  R3 #2 MUSIC BAY x 4 units Win $4.20

Resumes for smart Stokes stable, raced in good quality last prep, has been tuned up for this with two nice trials and has the class and ratings to figure hard here, happy to take the fav on from wide gate and map / tempo

Caulfield  R7 #13 PIPPIE x 5 units Win $2.70 BB

The way this race maps on this track she just looks very hard to beat, looks to have come back a stronger horse into this prep, word is she has tightened up further since her first up win, she can run and maintain a high cruising speed and then lengthen, looks very hard to go with early then backing she gives them something to chase

Rosehill  R4 #17 MRS MADRID x 2 units EW $20.00 / $5.50

Never saw daylight first up at 1600m, she has some quality form through G2 and G3 races behind Aliferous and in Brisbane WFA behind Keneda, has won twice this distance, likes rain effected ground, maps with good draw and Boss rides for Anthony Cummings stable

Morphettville  R3 #1 AAGAS x 4 units Win $2.80 BB

Looks well placed to win here, is fit, nice form lines for this quality inc recent 2nd, gets in very well with the claim, small field and questionable quality looks to set this up nicely

Morphettville  R5 #1 SUPLEX CITY x 4 units Win $3.70

Think the market is upside down here, we backed Aten first up but steps from maiden win to BM64, Suplex City comes off BM78 run behind the smart Pippe in Melb and three prior placings, is fit, big drop in grade and race map looks to unfold to set it up to finish hard late

Morphettville  R6 #8 NODOUBTABOUTIT x 2 units EW $10.00 / $3.20

Backmarker with what looks the right tempo here, improved 2nd up run and only gets better into a prep, also won 3rd up and loves this track (3 wins) and distance (6 wins), strips fit and looks excellent EW chance

Wednesday Sept 4th

Randwick  R1 #1 PETRONIUS x EW 2 units Win $5.00 / 3 units Place $1.90

Redoute’s Choice colt who has run 2nd at both runs to date, latest struck a smart one first up when a nice run, also coped some interference and covering some ground yet finished 2nd and race run in good time, step to 1400 here suits

Friday Sept 6th

Wyong  R5 #10 CAMP FIRE x 5 units Win $ BEST TOTE

Godolphin runner who looks ideally placed here, won maiden then a 3rd second up at Hawkesbury in Cl2, drops significantly in grade here back to Bm64, small field looks perfect, stable confidence, recent sectionals and ratings suggest it should be very hard to beat, bet Best Tote as expect tote price should get out late

Staking (and results keeping)

All bets will be recorded as the Fixed price advised at the time of publishing unless otherwise noted.

We list recommended stakes in Units so as to allow subscribers to tailor their betting outlay to suit their bank. Everyone chooses to bet in different bet sizes, from differing betting banks (the personal funds they put aside for betting), some will bet $20 per bet, some $200 per bet. So as to keep things simple and clear for everyone to follow we then talk in bet units. Our advice is to decide what size betting bank (per week) and then unit size (per bet) is likely to work for you and then call this your betting unit, remembering that you may have approx. 16 to 20 units of recommended outlay per week for horse racing selections that you may also run the risk of losing. Each bet will be nominated in betting units between 1 to 5, with this also a guide to the level of confidence that our sports analyst has in his nominated bet.

For those who would prefer a more conservative approach, given the high % of placings achieved by Matt Thompson with his selections you might consider a 1 x 2 or 1 x 3 staking method, staking 1 unit the win and 2 units the place for all selections regardless of the market price. Your longer term returns will be less but still very profitable, but this approach will even out the run of win outs when they occur and assist in maintaining your long term betting bank.
