Brad Waters’ Bendigo and Ararat Sunday tips: $16 value bet

Racenet and Herald Sun form analyst Brad Waters runs the rule over Sunday’s meetings at Bendigo and Ararat.


ELDERBERRY (Race 6 No. 13 – $3.50)

Elderberry drops back from city grade and scored impressively first-up last time in. She’s going to be hard to hold out at Bendigo.

REGGIE’S FOLLY (Race 7 No. 12 – $16)

Reggie’s Folly got a long way back from a tricky gate but wasn’t disgraced in town last time. He can race closer from barrier five and might be over the odds.

SOME PEOPLE CALLME (Race 8 No. 8 – $3.60)

Some People Callme was too good first-up last time in but was sound against top three-year-old company at his last run. He’ll find this much easier.


QUBELLA (Race 3 No. 18 – $5)

Qubella wasn’t far away first-up before going down narrowly at Benalla last time. She’s drawn to have every chance at Ararat and should go close again.

CHEVAL SAVANT (Race 6 No. 3 – $2)

Cheval Savant comfortably handled the switch to Victoria when scoring at Benalla. He’s up a level in grade at Ararat but will be tough to beat again.
