Racing this week is at headquarters in Victoria with Flemington hosting a bumper 9 race program. Warwick Farm and Morphettville both host a meeting while all eyes will be on Eagle Farm which hosts its first meeting in a long time since the dramatic issues which plagued their track when it was first redeveloped.

The leading provider of horse racing tournaments in Australia, SportChamps, has a number of options for tournament players across these metropolitan venues. They have two $5,000 guaranteed prize pool tournaments available on the four major tracks, one with a rebuy option and one without, to cater for whichever is your preference. Those looking to up the stakes may be interested in their $3,000 guaranteed $200 buyin no rebuy tournament which is run across the entire day of racing, including thoroughbreds, harness and greyhounds. TopBetta and Moneyball continue to offer their regular daily tournaments so whatever your specialty is, you should find a contest to suit.

Tournament players may look to get a good start on Race 1 at Flemington by working around the two favourites My Pendant and Queen La Diva. My Pendant is still on the up this prep and finished hard last time to get the prize in impressive fashion. The 1400m at Flemington looks ideal and there are queries over some of her rivals so she appeals as a good bet at $3.30 with Beteasy. Queen La Diva appeals as the obvious danger but the drop in trip is some concern. At odds of $4.20 with Pointsbet she may be worth a smaller percentage of your spend on the race, even if just to cover your main bet on My Pendant.

Race 6 at Flemington sees Order Of Command return to the scene of the crime where he won first up over the carnival. That was a good win over 1100m and he has been kept fresh to drop back to the 100m trip here. His rivals all have queries to their name which leaves him as the main betting prospect in the race and the current odds of $2.80 with Pointsbet seems very fair indeed.


Race 7 at Warwick Farm provides an intriguing race to work around a couple of horses suited racing near the lead. Pecans has run well at both runs this time in against harder company and although she goes up to 60kg she has twice won with 59.5kg in the past. She has the ratings to win this and can push forward to overcome her tricky draw. $4.60 at Sportsbet appeals as a reasonable price. The other on-pacer who looks well placed here is Catesby, who has been beaten narrowly at her past couple. He looks set to ping straight to the lead and may be able to control the race with a light weight on his back. If he does, it can play right into the hands of those betting on the two leading on-pacers. Catesby is available at $6 with Beteasy.

Race 9 at Warwick Farm takes place at 6:15pm and the state of the major tournaments will be reaching a fever pitch. Bon Amis presents as an excellent option at $4.20 with Neds. He ran home impressively to win his second successive race last time at Rosehill and drawing wide on the track projects to be an advantage by this stage of the day. Given he has placed at 1400m the slightly longer trip shouldn’t be an issue, nor should the 60kg given he carried 59.5kg to win two starts ago. If he holds his form he should be very hard to beat again.
