Ramornie Handicap 2012 – Betting Update and Tips

River Lad

River Lad is the Races.com.au tip to win the Ramornie Handicap

With highly-rated favourite Magic Cassius scratched this morning, Sydney youngster Howmuchdoyouloveme has assumed $2.60 favouritism at bookmaker.com.au.

Following the favourite in the market is in-form Queensland gelding River Lad ($3.80) and Howmuchdoyouloveme’s stablemate Riva De Lago ($4.20).

John Thompson-trained gelding Prost is the only other runner to fall under double figures ($7.00) while multiple black-type winner Youthful Jack provides value at $12.00.

Not sure who to back in this exciting Grafton feature? Keep reading as the Races.com.au team has done the hard work for you and bring to your our very best selections.

The Winner

#3 River Lad $3.80

This talented Queensland four-year-old showed he was more than ready for black-type racing last start when he produced a surprise victory ahead of Excellantes and Griffon in the Group 3 Healy Stakes at Eagle Farm.

He has reportedly progressed well since that race and is racing at his pet distance of 1200 metres, a trip at which he has won three of his eight career starts.

Boom jockey Tim Bell booted him home for the breakthrough black-type win and he returns to the saddle here in his final week as an apprentice jockey.

The Placings

#6 Prost $7.00 and #12 Howmuchdoyouloveme $2.70

John Thompson-trained Prost has flown slightly under the radar this week with all the talk about Con Karakatsanis-trained pair Howmuchdoyouloveme and Riva De Lago and the recently scratched favourite.

But the Show A Heart gelding hit the line impressively last start when finishing within a length of Eye Line Stakes winner Belltone and if he can repeat that performance he will go close here.

Howmuchdoyouloveme is a horse that has signalled plenty of potential with three wins from four starts but will have to improve again here in his first step up to Listed level.

The talented three-year-old has burnt the candle at both ends and got away with it at lower level and if he can settle at the start here will be near the front of the field at the finishing post.
