Wednesday's Australian horse racing bet of the day - Two specials for Strathalbyn and Sandown

  • Just Peggy suited on her home track.
  • Big Duke has the class and just needs to behave.

Some of Wednesday’s racing action comes from Strathalbyn in South Australia and Sandown in Victoria, and there are a couple of great chances that can get the cash for us.

Here are my two best for Wednesday:

STRATHALBYN

Race 4 - LAKE BREEZE WINES / SABOIS F&M BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1103m) 04.22AM

Locally-trained JUST PEGGY has her first race on her home track and has been brilliant at her past two starts. I blackbooked this daughter of Haradasun from the barrier trials but she was very disappointing first-up. She then came out and won at Morphettville at odds of $16 and then finished 4th last start after covering a stack of ground in a tougher race. Fourth-up from a spell she’ll be at peak fitness, and the small field of seven will offer no excuses. She is simply travelling better than her rivals and should fly on her home track where she has trialled well previously. She actually could have led last start but was restrained before getting caught wide. Winkers go on for the first time, and it wouldn’t surprise to see her try and lead all the way on Wednesday.

SANDOWN:

Race 7 - YARRAMALONG RACING CLUB HANDICAP (1600m) 05.30AM

Darren Weir’s import BIG DUKE played up before his Australian debut and that may have cost him the win. He ended up a long way back in the run and was charging home when it was all over but seemed to peak on his run in the last 100m. He’ll strip much fitter for the run and now gets in with 2kg less after apprentice Ben Allen’s claim. With just eight runners left after scratchings, he should get a perfect trail along the inside from barrier 1, and as long as Allen can get him into the clear at the right time, he’ll be finishing over the top of them in the straight.
