VRC Oaks Day 2014: Tip Sheet

After a day of mixed emotions at Flemington on Tuesday, attention now turns to Oaks Day.  

After 36 hours of hyperbole and knee jerk reactions it will be good to have some racing to focus on.  

Here are my tips for today’s racing: 

VRC Oaks:

Best Bet: Lumosty (Number 4)

Best Value: Fontein Ruby (Number 1) 

Remainder of the race card: 

Race 1 Number 6 Tear Gas
Race 2 Number 10 Cadillac Mountain 
Race 3 Number 1 Eloping 
Race 4 Number 2 Beauty’s Beast 
Race 5 Number 6 Proactive 
Race 6 Number 5 Bounding 
Race 7 Number 16 Angels Beach 
Race 9 Number 6 Gridhian (e/w) 

I have a bad feeling that today’s racing will be attempted to be hijacked by the anti-racing lobby who frankly have significant questions to answer in my opinion (https://shumpty77.com/2014/11/05/horse-racing-5-questions-for-the-anti-racing-lobby-and-associated-keyboard-warriors-bandwagons/ ), nonetheless I hope you have great day if you are on the punt or just a fan watching. 

As always:
1. Please gamble responsibly. 
2. Whilst all care is taken with these tips no responsibility vest for losses incurred.

Shumpty’s Punt: Crown Oaks and a Thursday multi

Yesterday’s multi fell at the 3rd hurdle with the Bruins not getting over the line. Have had a look at the form in American sport again this morning and have a 5 leg multi that I am very keen on. It is as follows:

Leg 1: Indiana Pacers to cover the line (-2.5 points) against the Chicago Bulls in the NBA.
Leg 2: Toronto Raptors to cover the line (-2.5 points) against the Charlotte Bobcats in the NBA.
Leg 3: Chicago Blackhawks to cover the line (-1.5 goals) against the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL.
Leg 4: Golden State Warriors to cover the line (-1 points) against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA.
Leg 5: Anaheim Ducks to cover the line (-1.5 goals) against the Phoenix Coyotes in the NHL.

All up this multi will pay $45.78 for each dollar invested. Here’s hoping we can have some more luck than yesterday.

It is Ladies Day at Flemington today and the main race of the day is the Group 1 Crown Oaks over 2500 metres. Kirramosa is a worthy favourite after its slashing run on Saturday however I am going away from her and am tipping Solicit on an each way basis to perform very strongly.

As always: good luck and good punting.
