Thursday's Australian horse racing bet of the day - 9/1 chance Destined for a big win

  • Last run was much better than it looks on paper.
  • Confidence rating: 94%

There is a runner at Kyneton on Thursday that looks set to produce his best, and at 9/1, this runner looks way over the odds.

The Brian Gentle-prepared Destiny’s Revenge was one of my blackbookers from the Seymour barrier trials on October 25, but was disappointing when first-up from a spell.

The jump from an 800m trial to a 1200m race proved a little too much, but the run was much better than it looked and the son of Reward For Effort is better placed on Thursday.

Having jumped slowly last start, rider Patrick Holmes drove him hard toward the lead where duelled for a forward position but was then restrained and started to overrace severely – really poor one dimensional riding tactics.

He loomed as the winner in the straight but weakened in the last 100m

He now lines up in Race 2, the Hanging Rock Winery Maiden Plate (1100m), and should strip much fitter for the first-up run, while he also looks suited dropping back 100m in trip.

Top rider Dean Yendall takes the ride from barrier 2, and there couldn’t be a bigger positive than that. 

With natural early speed and natural fitness improvement from his first-up run to the next, Destiny’s Revenge should be right in the finish and represents great each-way value at 9/1.

The Danny O’Brien-trained Miss Adequate has come up as the favourite, but she’ll be better over further and is a big risk.
