Weekend Best Bets for Jan 19 & 20

Juice up your balance with the best horse racing bets this weekend.

Misteed – Canterbury Race 1 – Australian Turf Club Mdn Hcp

Richie Calander says: “Misteed was outstanding on debut and most unlucky not to get the cash when going down in a close finish. With race experience and an extra 100m she can take up a nice spot handy to the speed and hard to get past. Her main danger is Everard who also turned in a very good debut performance. She gets barrier one and a repeat effort will have her in the major spoils. The Enzo is honest and should get a perfect run giving him a chance


Best Value

Insensata – Randwick Race 8 – Rebecca Louise (Bm85)

Nick Hluchaniuk says: “Insensata should have won first-up during her winter campaign, finding all sorts of trouble in the straight at Warwick Farm before flashing home for 3rd. A solid tempo will suit and she’ll be out of the ground late.”

Experta – Doomben Race 7 – Brc Memberships (Bm75)

Isaac Ling says: “I liked the way Expertea (13) handled both the rise in trip and grade when third over this distance at the Gold Coast metro meeting a fortnight ago. The Chris Munce-trained mare has raced consistently all campaign and proved last time that she’s up to this sort of level. She was up from 1600-2200m on that occasion, so should be rock-hard fit for this now, and she should have a headstart on favourite Kirini in the run.”
