UBET – Saturday Racing Wrap
Best Backed: $3.20 into $1.95, Pepperanno captured 45% of the hold in Race 6 and landed punters a princely sum.
Hard Lay: War Baby – $2.80 out to $5.00 – was wisely skirted around in Race 3.
Bookie Basher: Well found at $5.00, Race 5 winner Hi Harry was a bad beat for the fixed odds team.
Early Bird: See Pepperanno above.
Flop: Crunched from $4.20 into $2.50 in Race 8, Man Of His Word missed the frame.
Best Backed: Polar Vortex was pummelled from $5.50 into $2.60 in Race 9, but the son of Fastnet Rock left it in the bag.
Hard Lay: No one wanted El Sicario in Race 2, who opened $4.20 and drifted to 7.00.
Bookie Basher: Shillelagh jumped $3.40 with two thirds of the money in Race 8. Damian Oliver did the dosh justice.
Early Bird: Slypheed was $7.00 into $4.20 in Race 7 and got the money for the early shoppers.
Flop: Buckler – $10 into $5.50 – was instead the one they came for, but the cash went astray.
Best Backed: $2.50 into $1.85, Jorda held 70% of all money bet in Race 1 and got punters got off to a flyer.
Hard Lay: It’s Somewhat was one of the safer bets on the card, but few were keen to step into the $1.55 in Race 2.
Bookie Basher: Hauraki touched $9.00 an hour before the Epsom. Smart punters pounced and the result was the biggest payout of Spring to date.
Early Bird: At one stage, $10 was on offer about Takedown in Race 9. He jumped $6.50 and, once again, took care of his more fancied rivals.
Flop: English was well found in the last, even though she was $3.10 out to $4.10 late. Once more, she proved costly.
Cox Plate: Hauraki $35 into $13.
Oaks: Moqueen $151 into $15.
Derby: Nemrud $35 into $15, Mongolian Falcon $101 into $41.
