Exotic Tips of the Day

Racing action in Australia continues on Saturday and Only Racing Australia is here to help you find some winning bets! We've got some cheeky exotic bets for you in this one from some of the best meetings of the day. There should be good conditions at Flemington on Saturday. The track is rated a soft 5 at the moment but that could be upgraded as the day goes. There's a full 10 race card, with Race 8 one to watch over 2800m. There's also 10 races on the card at Scone. Some weather around the area so it's worth checking for rain during the afternoon. While at Doomben, it's been wet all week in Brisbane so the track is a heavy 8 at this stage.

Exacta - Flemington - R10

1st: 1,7,10,11

2nd: 1,7,10,11

Shesallshenanigans has been steadily improving with each run this preparation. Her latest effort was particularly impressive, hinting that a victory might be just around the corner.

Pondalowie made a comeback at this track with a new tongue tie and pulled off a smart all-the-way win. There’s every reason to believe she can go well again.

Despite being overlooked in the betting on debut at Sandown, Icarus defied expectations and claimed victory after coming from behind.

Unconquerable is making a return after placing fourth and fifth in Cranbourne jumpouts. This horse showed a lot of heart by winning at debut late last year.

Exacta - Scone - R4

1st: 4, 7, 8, 11

2nd: 4, 7, 8, 11

For Victory has been on a roll lately. He built up nicely to win two races back and then took on a slightly tougher race next time. 

Perfect Play has some impressive lineage, being related to Nathaniel. His local debut was solid, even though he couldn't quite match up to the winner. 

Unusual Legacy had a tough time with the sprint home in his first race, but wow, did he finish strong. 

Tajawal is another exciting prospect. He was purchased at the Tatts HIT sale. His recent trial work has been really nice too.

Exacta - Doomben - R5

1st: 4, 6, 11

2nd: 4, 6, 11

Gringotts has really impressed me this prep. He came back strong, winning first up even though he sat three wide, and then dashed clear to clinch the Tamworth Cup.

Territory Express has made a lot of progress this prep. His provincial wins were good, but what really caught my eye was his Group 2 placing two races back. 

Knight's Choice is resuming after a break. He hasn't placed in his previous fresh runs over shorter distances, but he did win his only other try at this route.

Stats and Insights

  • Flexi Betting lets you bet a bit of the full dividend, so you can stick to your budget by taking a smaller cut of the total win.
  • With the Exacta, your payout depends on which of the Aussie TABs is in your area.
  • The Exacta usually pays out more than the Quinella since it's trickier to pick the horses in the right order.
  • Exacta's are a good bet if you're really confident in a horse to win, especially if it's a short-priced favourite.
