Bendigo Tips 27/02/2024


Race 1 No. 4 CASTLE ON HIGH- ($3.30 

The opener is a Maiden over the 1600m and CASTLE ON HIGH can go a few spots better than a debut effort that saw him finish 4th behind Rocking The Boat when resuming over the 1300m at Sandown on February 7. She settled back and came out wide in the straight that day before producing the fastest last 200m. Step up to the 1600m looks ideal for the former Kiwi. 




Race 3 No. 3 WARBY RANGES- ($5.10) 

Promising first up performance by WARBY RANGES at Sandown recently and the Team Hawkes-trained galloper can go close here. He is another that comes out of the race taken out by Rocking The Boat and produced the fastest 400m-200m split before slightly peaking on his run on the inside. The son of Sebring will strip fitter for this and has attracted support in the early betting. 




Race 8 No. 14 FERLAZZO- ($5.50) 

This looks to be a suitable assignment for FERLAZZO. He was a winner earlier this prep in a BenchMark 58 and was runner-up two starts ago at Geelong before heading to Pakenham and finishing 5th behind Misspoke. They went very slow early on in that race and he was last after drawing wide. The Price/Kent Jnr galloper finished off with the best late splits. He draws to settle closer this time around and has been a big firmer in the early betting. 




Race 8 No.14 DIO- ($11) 

Best Value comes up in Race 6 and DIO is worth thought at the each-way quote. The five-year-old hasn’t measured up at Moonee Valley in BenchMark 78 races in his two runs this time in but has taken a couple of runs to get going in the past and drops to a BenchMark 64. Recent benchmark figures compare well to this lot and he was a winner the only time he raced at the track and trip, which was last year. Dakotah Keane rides and claims the 3kg. She is three wins from six rides for the stable, providing a 202% profit on turnover.
