Bendigo Tips 9/3/2023


Race 6 No. 5  YOSEMITE- ($3)

YOSEMITE should be hard to beat in Race 6 of the day at Bendigo. The Robbie Griffths & Matthew de Kock-trained galloper tackles her easiest assignment in some time and was a tad keen early on last time at Sale in a BenchMark 64 over the 1200m before sticking on ok for 5th. She was an unlucky 3rd in BM58 company at her start prior to that at Sale over the 1100m and should have finished a bit closer. The daughter of Redwood draws barrier 2 for this and has been crunched in the early betting. 



Race 7 No. 3  OPPOSING – ($6)

OPPOSING can go close in Race 7. The Ben & JD Hayes-trained galloper was ok when resuming at Flemington back in January before stepping out at Benalla in a BenchMark 58 on February 14, finishing 3rd behind Onika. The six-year-old settled behind the leaders and was held up in the straight before finishing just over a length behind Onika. Form from that race has held up with two horses going on to win. Third up last time he was a six-length improver on benchmark figures when 4th in a BM64 at Geelong and he looks ready to chalk up his second career win.
