Newcastle Newmarket Handicap 2011 Betting Tips & Field Update

Today the $125,000 Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) will light up Sydney’s Newcastle Racecourse and here the team take a look at the leading contenders for the autumn feature and provide our insider 2011 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap betting tips.

The 2011 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap field currently features 10 runners after the early scratching of #3 Empires Choice, #4 Snow Alert and #7 Hidden Wonder.

Favourite to win Newcastle Race 7 at 4:54pm (AEDST) this afternoon is #13 Glintz sitting at a price of $2.80 through Luxbet.

The John O’Shea-trained Glintz is the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap betting market mover having been heavily backed in from their opening quote of $3.10.

The Pins gelding has a good barrier five draw, is a 53kg lightweight in the field and is coming off a close first-up third to Warpath in a 1400m race at Rosehill on February 26.

Last year Glintz enjoyed a stunning spring campaign winning four of their five race starts including two more over the 1400m Newcastle Newmarket Handicap distance.

Their only spring defeat was a narrow second to Thankgodyou’rehere in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m), which was Glintz’ only other black-type assignment.

Despite the claims Glintz has of becoming today’s Newcastle Newmarket Handicap winner, the team are tipping an upset and have #11 So Anyway rated special to win.

2011 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap Tips – Newcastle Race 7 Betting

  • Favourite: #11 So Anyway – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
  • To Place: #13 Glintz and #10 Purrpurrlena

So Anyway has the ideal barrier three draw today and is also set to carry just 53kg, John Thompson’s General Nediym mare running third-up for the season.

Last start So Anyway finished a game fourth beaten three lengths by Red Flair in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 26 carrying 56.5kg.

The drop back in weight and good record over the distance make So Anyway an excellent pick to cause an upset.

It seems word is catching on too as So Anyway has been backed in from $16 to $10 at Luxbet over the past day so now is the time to get behind the pick before their price shortens further.

Glintz’s form cannot be ignored and they are sure to run a close second behind the winner.

To complete the winning Newcastle Newmarket Handicap Trifecta we like the look of $17 roughie at Luxbet Purrpurrlena.

Set to start from barrier one with Brenton Avdulla in the mount, the Grahame Begg-trained Catbird mare is one of only two horses in the field to have run and won at the Newcastle track.
