Bet List Selections and Previews

Friday 21nd October

Moonee Valley R6#3 RAGEESE $2.90 Crown Bet / Unibet x 4 units – 2nd

(rated $1.70) smart horse now fit and ready to win, comes through high rating run and form line behind the very smart Chetwood at Listed level, ran the fastest last 800 and closing splits (200’s) when coming from near last, with clean running should be winning this and expect starts odds on

Wednesday 19th October

Geelong R6#2 PRETTY PUNK $4.80 William Hill x 3 units – 2nd

(rated $3.20) impressive win and closing sectionals last start win at Listed grade when came from well back finishing hard and running right through the line, looks to get a more forward sit here from the better gate and there looks plenty of early speed to push the tempo, test others and set this up for him to finish off nicely, looks a stayer of promise

Saturday 15th October

Caulfield R5#2 GOOD STANDING $3.10 William Hill x 3 units – WINS

(rated $2.20) looks well placed here coming through strong formlines and importantly now drawing a quality gate to map with lovely run, drew wide last week then sat 3 and 4 wide the trip yet still finished a close 2 lengths behind the winner in strong rating race, similar strong ratings behind Impending run prior, is the one to beat here – quinella/exacta with #’s 6, 9 and 14

Caulfield R6#1 IT’S SOMEWHAT $2.60 William Hill x 4 units – 3rd

(rated $2.20) multiple Group winner comes through quality form line behind Hauraki and then Winx then strolled in when out to pet distance last start at this same level and distance, looks to map with the perfect sit and on speed slipstream run, impressive sectionals last start and looks to peek here

Randwick R6#1 JUNOOB $4.00 Sportsbet x 3 units – WINS

(rated $2.80) long in the tooth but racing in quality form and drops into a grade off strong recent ratings where he won’t know himself, quality efforts and close up in multiple G3 then last start G1 races now plummets to Listed grade and looks thrown in at the weights given his recent form and long term record, small field and race map suits, a run anywhere near his recent ratings and he wins

Randwick R8#10 EGYPTIAN SYMBOL $3.50 William Hill x 4 units – WINS

(rated $2.40) early bet in all in markets for this Saturday, comes through exceptionally strong G2 form behind Japonisme, Counterattack, lightly raced on the up, will be ready to run boldly first up. Unbeaten fresh, has trialed very twice onto this and very well suited against own sex in light at the weights.

Caulfield Cup R8

Very open race, concede the fav #11 Jameka can run well but happy to risk winning, of the last 28 x 4 yr old mares to run in this race their record is shocking with just 1 win and 5 placings. Internationals #4 Scottish, #9 Articus and #5 Sir Isaac Newton all have quality claims, of the locals both #8 Sir John Hawkwood, #15 Sacred Master and #10 Tally come off strong rating runs and form lines. The two best backed runners through the last week have been #15 Sacred Master ($31’s to $14’s) and #9 Articus ($14’s to $9’s).

My tips are to back #4 Scottish (win) and #15 Sacred Master (each way) and play the suggested First4

Free SMS Messages

We now provide Free SMS Messaging of all tips to all subscribers. Each SMS message will list the selection detail but full preview notes will need to be accessed via the website page. If you would like to receive SMS messages direct to your mobile phone you can opt in by email to confirm your interest should you wish to or head to your profile page and fill in your mobile phone number.

Staking (and results keeping)

We list recommended stakes in Units so as to allow subscribers to tailor their betting outlay to suit their bank. Some may chose to bet $10 units, some $50 units, and so on.

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

Ian brown personally chooses to be Win only, and all record keeping is based on this approach.

1) BEST BETS are bet to the recommended unit stake, normally WIN bet or on occasions each way, as outlined beside each listed selection

2) MULTI LEG BETS when provided can be bet at any flexi % bet outlay to suit each individual subscriber, however as a guide for staking and % return multi leg bets are suggested with a $100 flexi % bet outlays.

Published prices are a guide (when available) to the best price we were able to obtain either in the hours prior (fixed price) to the race or in the trading on the race (best fluc or best tote). Current pre race market prices can be compared here.
