Bendigo racing

I’ve found what looks like an absolute special in Race 5, the Bet365 BM70 Handicap (1500m) at Bendigo on Wednesday.

04.30am Bendigo selection - BUT IT'S TRUE (6/4, bet365)

The race was quite open with three main chances but Bee Jay Zed has been scratched and the Michael Moroney-trained But It’s True is left as a clear standout.

The four-year-old son of High Chaparral won third-up last campaign and now comes into Wednesday’s assignment at his third run this preparation.

He worked home strongly when first-up over 1200m at Caulfield and then stepped up to 1400m last time and just missed behind Maternal and Rewarding Effort.

Maternal has since finished a narrow 2nd in a stronger BM78 at Moonee Valley and Rewarding Effort was coming off a dominant 2.8-length victory at Pakenham the start prior – so the form stacks up.

But It’s True was caught wide for the entire trip and loomed in the straight but seemed flat-footed for 50m or so before driving hard at that pair on the line.

The extra trip will suit on Wednesday, but more importantly, he’ll be much better suited with the long Bendigo straight giving him plenty of time to balance up and charge.

With Bee Jay Zed coming out, there isn’t a lot of pace, and considering But It’s True sat up on the speed when third-up last campaign, he should be right up there on Wednesday.

Of his other rivals, Star Zone finished four lengths behind Bee Jay Zed in the race won by The Chairman, Global Assault and Hell On Earth would prefer some sting out of the track, Eye The World is unplaced in four starts at Bendigo, and Shockaholic and Tintaglia finished 4th and 5th respectively behind Killmacurragh who finished last at Flemington on Stakes Day.

But It’s True should enjoy a nice run in transit and simply be too good for them in the straight.
