Warwick Tips 14/03/2023

Our form expert provides Warwick tips for today’s horse racing at Warwick Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 6:  No.8  BETTER EXPLAIN  ($3 with bet365)

Annabel Neasham saddles-up BETTER EXPLAIN here and sporting a gear change, looks the one to beat in this contest. Last start, the Better Than Ready gelding was second-up and on a Heavy 9 that day, ploughed through the conditions and beat them home in a Class 1 Hcp over 1310m at Lismore. Despite winning that event, Neasham has still decided to fit the blinkers for the first time here and from gate six, he maps to settle just off the pace with cover. Jag Guthmann-Chester rode the three-year-old to his Maiden victory four starts back at Kilcoy and returns here for today’s assignment. Fitter for two runs back and a winner over the trip, he looks the testing material here.



Race 7:  No.3  ENTERPRISE MAXIMUS  ($4.20 with Palmerbet)

Ipswich galloper ENTERPRISE MAXIMUS is in great touch this time in and looks well placed here to score his second track win today. Last start, the Shamus Award gelding came off a poor showing on his home track when he bounced back to claim third prize in a four-horse blanket finish at Toowoomba, against BM58 company over 1300m. Sent out a $41 chance, he missed the start and settled last before fanning wide on the turn and finishing strongly enough to make the podium in time. He ran his last 600m, 1.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up and set the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race as well. Already a winner here and at his peak after four starts this campaign, he should prove hard to hold out today.



Race 5:  No.5  MENOTTI  ($5.50 with bet365)

The Chris Anderson-trained MENOTTI is three starts into this preparation and with podium finishes to his name already, he looks set to give this contest a real shake as well. Last start, the Dissident gelding came off his Maiden win on the synthetic track at the Gold Coast when he finished fifth (of 11) in Class 1 company over the 1350m journey at Ipswich. Beaten just two lengths that day, he covered the trip, 7.4 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort here. Anderson drops him back in distance today and he should find this event a little easier than last start. Bailey Wheeler sticks with him and given a clear run to the line, he should be there at the finish today.
