The Battler's Big Value
Published: 04 Oct 2014
All the Race Guides are up for a massive day of racing at Royal Randwick. The Epsom sees Sydney's leading stables go head-to-head, while the Roman Consul brings together a very select field of colts and geldings.
There's nothing The Race Guide's 'Bookie Battler' likes better than a winner at a price. He has done all the race form and factors to find you some big value.
RACE 2 BREEDERS' PLATE - No. 13 Stimac
Odds: $18 -> $17*
Battler comment: "Waller runners don’t usually go around at monster odds and the whispers are this youngster is better than the price."
RACE 3 DULCIFY QUALITY - No. 6 Lady Macan
Odds: $19 -> $26*
Battler comment - "She looked like a half-back stuck in the ruck at Hawkesbury when she got spat out the back. The win last prep over a decent Waller runner could see her show up against this lot. That price will do me."
Big odds - Lady Macan is the outsider of a small field
RACE 4 ROMAN CONSUL STAKES - No. 5 Delectation
Odds: $11 -> $13*
Battler comment: "No idea who’s going to win this little trap of a race. That doesn’t mean no bet, it just means go for value and this brute is ‘overs’ at those odds."
All power - Delectation can compete in a very tricky race
RACE 5 CRAVEN PLATE - No. 6 Vilanova
Odds: $7 -> $8*
Battler comment: "My book of punting rules says to stick to four year olds at this time of year. The other one Rising Romance is ‘tomato sauce’ odds. I’ll take the $8 and 'Best of the Best' on this guy."
RACE 7 THE EPSOM - No. 9 Ninth Legion
Odds: $11 -> $11*
Battler comment: "He has been gunning for this right from day one and last week was just a warm-up. One of those ponies you can rely on for a decent run and the guys at Luxbet have gone mad offering a winning payout if he comes second. Might have a crack at his stable-mate too."
A good bet - Ninth Legion is a reliable type at big odds
