Bet List Selections and Preview


Saturday 19th September

Best Bet – Morphettville  R4#1 GRANDDUKEOFTUSCANY  $3.80 Sportsbet x 3 units

Saturday: GRANDDUKEOFTUSCANY (rated $3.30) scratched from Seymour last week when drew outside barrier, now taken to Adelaide in what looks an even weaker offering BM70 and key stable joc travels to ride – Williams import set for sharp first up run and wouldn’t have to be too smart to be winning this, came of UK Group runs prior to purchase then 4 wide the trip when finishing 2 lengths 6th (BM 78) at it’s only Australian start to date, then 175 day lengthy spell to target Spring campaign, drops considerably in grade to BM 70

Friday 18th September

Best Bet – Newcastle  R7#8 ASTRONOMOS $4.20 Sportsbet x 3 units – dnp

Friday: ASTRONOMOS (rated $3.40) looks a promising stayer, his last start win was against the pattern and he did so in smart closing sectionals, this looks the race they have targeted and I like stayers in positive form running sharp closing time, maps with a nice run from the better gate and is well in at the weights

Wednesday 16th September

Best Bet – Canterbury  R2#14 ZARA BAY  $5.00  Centrebet x 3 units – 2nd

Best Bet – Canterbury  R7#3 BURNING PASSION  $4.00  Sportsbet x 3 units – dnp

Wednesday: ZARA BAY (rated $3.20) the way this race maps she looks to get a lovely run trailing the speed with some likely pressure on up front early leaving it with the chance to finish strongly, will improve off her first up run and the improved draw puts her right in the finish  BURNING PASSION (rated $2.60) third up from the better draw looks ready to win, finished 2nd at both runs this track and distance, the latest after drawing wide getting back and needing luck to then be finishing hard, now ideally drawn and maps with the right run

Sunday 13th September

Best Bet – Sunshine Coast  R7#1 DESERT GENERAL  $2.80  Sportsbet x 4 units – 1st $3.70

Best Bet – Cranbourne  R7#7 DRY BISCUIT  $ Best Tote x 1.5 units each way – 2nd $1.80

Sunday: DESERT GENERAL (rated $2.00) if he is any where near forward enough then he should be winning this, and placing him here first up looks like they are after an easy first up win, he has 3 yr old Group form around SADLERS LAKE, WORTHY CAUSE and JUMBO PRINCE has won first up and now steps out in a Class 2  DRY BISCUIT (rated $3.30) won his maiden two starts ago over 1700 by 5 lengths, then came from last with the fastest closing sectionals at Sandown, extra distance suits, can win and looks an each way good thing

Saturday 12th September

Best Bet – Rosehill  R4#4 MUSIC MAGNATE  $3.00  Sportsbet x 4 units – 3rd

Best Bet – Flemington  R5#8 DISPOSITION  $2.70  Sportsbet x 4 units – 1st $2.70

Best Bet – Flemington  R9#8 OBSERVATIONAL  $7.00 / $2.50  Sportsbet x 2 units Each Way – dnp

Best Bet – Doomben  R7#9 SONY LEGEND   $3.60  Sportsbet x 3 units – 4th

Please note a recommended long term Futures Bet to be placed today has been listed below

Saturday:  MUSIC MAGNATE (rated $2.10) comes off a sensational form line and first up run when 2nd to Fell Swoop who continues to frank the strength of that run, 21 day break but kept sharp with a recent trial, maps well to sit behind the speed and then get the last short at them, I have no doubt he will start much much shorter by race time and want to bet early  DISPOSITION (rated $2.10) the push for this today is very strong, has quality Group form, placed 7 of 8 inc 4 wins, flys fresh and smart change of stables and joc engagement, very hard to beat  OBSERVATIONAL (rated $4.00) have had this runner blackbooked since his impressive first up win last start / prep, his first run here as a Williams import. Came from 16th on the turn then still 16th at the 400 mtr mark to still win with a rattling finish at only his 6th career start in Listed quality at Bendigo, then put away for his tilt at the Spring, he’ll get back but big open spaces of Flemington will suit  SONY LEGEND (rated $2.70) very suited here out to 1200 off fresh run, off same pattern won by 3 lengths this track distance three starts ago, maps with lovely forward run for inside draw, looks the one they have to catch on straightening

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
