Shumpty’s Punt: Saturday Special

I have not had a Saturday bet for a while but I have one tip for this weekend that I can not go past so I thought I would pass it on here.

In Race 6 at Eagle Farm today (Ascot Handicap) I am tipping Bymonashee to win at value in this race.  The horse should be reading peak in this race third up after a spell and has a great draw from the seven barrier.  The form line here is quite impressive with the horse having only be bested by short margins by two Group 1 winners, Tiger Tees and River Lad in recent starts.

Currently at $6.50 / $2.35 on the fixed price market on my investment will be each way but with a great deal of confidence.

As always:

  1. Please gamble responsibly.
  2. All care is taken with this tip however no responsibility for any losses incurred.
