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: Geelong Cup

It would be fair to say that the Geelong Cup this year is short on quality runners.

The obvious tip is the favourite Forgotten Voice. My money though will be on the Bryce Stanaway gelding Crafty Cruiser. He is stepping up in grade here but has excellent form over the distance having run a close 4th in the Listed Bart Cummings two and half weeks ago behind, among others Sea Moon. That form line makes me think the $9 fixed price about him on sportingbet.com.au is a bit of overs.

As always, please gamble responsibly.
