Heavy rain saw some small fields at Wyong today, but that didn’t deter the punters as they stepped up to make it an interesting day of betting.
In Race 4 we laid some decent money on the favourite Make Mine a Dubleo to see it’s quote firm from $3.10 into $2.60. Flash Diva flashed home in a photo to beat the favourite, giving the bookies a big result.
Another small field in Race 5 resulted in the money being distributed between the main 3 picks in the market with the majority placed on the second favourite Accretive ($3 into $2.50). Accretive broke away at the turn and held on in the dying stages to give the punters a glimmer of hope.
Up north at Rockhampton, Race 4 attracted the most attention. Smart money on the #9 Smokin’ Tiger ($6 into $3.80) saw the bookies keen to lay other runners in the market, including the drifting Lady Bullmore ($3.50 out to $5). But I t was to be the punters who walked away with the cash as Lady Bullmore skipped away for a soft win.
