Bookmaker Palmerbet have combed through the form for Saturday’s Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes at Eagle Farm and found one that looks a great each-way bet.
BACCARAT BABY has shown a knack for finding one or two of her rivals better on the day, this prep. But you can get behind her on Saturday knowing that if she finishes in the placings, Race Rescue has you covered.
She comes into this week’s Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes in good form, despite the fact she has not won for 35 weeks. She has placed at all three runs this preparation, having no luck when flashing home after being held up at critical times on two occasions, and finding the front too early and getting run down on the third.
The David Vandyke trained 4yo mare should get a good run this Saturday, sitting just off a fast speed early before unwinding her customary strong finish late. Michael Hellyer knows her well and has ridden her to seven victories and she has won over the 1400m at Eagle Farm before. She looks beautifully placed.
However, BACCARAT BABY has been expensive of late. Her fast finishing style leaves her susceptible to luck in running. If she is held up in the straight, as has happened in recent times she can run out of time to catch the leaders. The step back from 1600m to 1400m this week is a concern. Will the race be too short? Is another fast finishing minor placing coming up?
She looks ready to run a race. The good news is that with Palmerbet’s Race Rescue you can rest easy, knowing that your stake is covered if BACCARAT BABY flashes late but misses out again.
