Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Wednesday, 2 February 2022. The runner's highlighted are our #BlackBook runners (the key runners of focus), while those included in the 'other' section of each race are additional runner's that have jumped out well enough to be worth noting. Our figures and benchmark ratings are from PuntingForm.
MURRAY BRIDGE - Race 1
#9 EVENTUALLY took the shortest way home along the rail in Heat 9 on Jan 18 and won by a comfortable margin under a hold but she did so in slow time for the morning. Only the first jump out this prep for this 3yo Helmet filly, so one for the watch list.
SANDOWN - Race 4
#3 SAVVY SOVEREIGN looks to have return in really nice order. He was hard held in a Jan 5 jump out when 5th, but there was no holding him back in Heat 2 on Jan 18 as he led them up and kicked away to record a several length victory with ease ahead of some talented horses in Ayahuasca in 2nd and Untouchable Ed in 3rd. Looking for a BM58 first up, hopefully.
Murray Bridge, Race 1 - EVENTUALLY
We won't be diving into the short odds for this filly on debut as she's in SA instead of VIC and she's only had the one jump out ahead of her debut this preparation, so a slight query on how forward she is but it was nice one and SA racing is generally a bit weaker than VIC.
On ratings though, this looks winnable and Barend Vorster for T & C McEvoy is generally a winning combination.
As a rule of thumb, our new 'units' system will be based on the following staking plan:
0.25 units is a speculation ('spec') bet at a bigger price.
0.50 units to 1.00 units is a low confidence bet.
1.00 units to 2.00 units is a medium confidence bet.
2.00 units to 3.00 units is a high confidence bet.
5.00 units is the maximum bet and is a 'special', or a very high confidence bet.
In addition, we'll put more of an emphasis on our highlighted runners (medium to high confidence bets) and lower bets on our 'Other' runners (low confidence). This is because the highlighted runners are striking at much more favourable 31% WIN & 62% PLC since August 2020 for 600+ runners.
We recommend you have a TAB, TopSport (click here), Bet365 and Betfair account.
No plays. Total outlay is 0.00 units.
Overall (since 21 Oct, 2021): +19.39 units at Recommend Price | +56.57 units at Betfair SP
