Bendigo Race 6 is the headline event on the card when the $12,000 Cloverfields Agistment Farm 0 – 68 Handicap (1000m) takes place at 4:00pm (AEDST) and we have our money on #4 No Means Go to win.

Highlights at Port Lincoln today include Race 4 the $20,000 Complete Business & Accounting Services Flying Handicap (1200m) at 3:01pm (AEDST) where #1 Covet The Lot on the rails looks the winner and Race 7 the $40,000 Carlton Draught Port Lincoln Cup (1950m) at 4:56pm (AEDST) where of the crack field we have our money on #2 Over The Road to win for trainer Simon Drewitt.

  • Taree (NSW)Race 1 jumps at 1:20pm (AEDST) – Bet now at Luxbet

One of two TAB meets running in New South Wales today is the eight-race programme at Taree which is due to get underway at 1:20pm (AEDST) with the $10,000 Saxby’s Diet Ginger Beer Benchmark 70 Handicap (1600m) and for the win we are tipping #4 Gypsy Ruler.

Race 6 at Taree is shaping up as a beauty with the $10,000 Saxby’s Toffee Apple Class 1 Handicap (1000m) jumping at 4:21pm (AEDST) and of the field we fancy #4 Ruling Class.

Queensland’s sole Friday race meet will take place at Ipswich this afternoon where a seven-race card kicks off at 2:02pm (AEDST) with the $12,000 Kaysuelle Fashions Maiden Plate (2150m).

Final event on the Ipswich programme looks the best for punters when Race 7 the $10,000 Yalumba Class 1 Handicap (1100m) brings things to a close at 5:50pm (AEDST) and where we fancy the lightly-raced wildcard of the field, #3 Show Me An Ace.
