We'll message you the best tips for today!

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, April 20, and provided our best horse racing tips

The carnival has been a long, tough slog but we were really able to finish with a bang finding the Sydney Cup winner at nice odds on the final day of The Championships at Royal Randwick, then cleaning up on the last day of the Sydney Autumn carnival with our best bet saluting at huge double figure odds on race 1, followed up by our two top tips of the day winning to tip the scales back in our favour by the time they called stumps.

It’s back to the grind this week with midweek meetings at Canterbury, Bendigo and Ipswich to muse upon as we seek to find some sound investments for that little pool of surplus funds we’ve managed to end up with.

We have made five selections in total and are confident that we have found you some winners! So, read on below to find our best horse racing tips for this Wednesday, April 20. 

Ipswich, Race 1 – 7. Johnny Dash ($10/$2.60) 

Started a $1.65 on debut and never fired a shot. Copped a bit of buffeting early on and never really settled but there were no genuine excuses. Let’s just chalk it up to experience and give him one more go. 

He deserves as much off his trials back in Sydney and it would be a tragedy to miss him at a price. Like the idea of going to 1200m in a race where there will be plenty of tempo.

Have an each way play and save on the Lee Freedman trained Soothsayer. 

Canterbury, Race 1 – 6. Sweet Baby Boom ($2.45) 

Crosses, leads, and just wins. Best of the day.

The rider overdid it in front on debut when she still boxed on to hold down third to the promising Willinga Beast who would go on to be narrowly defeated in the Group 2 Percy Sykes.

Then forget about the most recent run, which took place in atrocious conditions at a meeting that was soon abandoned mid way through.

Clark stays on and sure to be hard fit third up.

Bendigo, Race 1 – 2. Eaglesaurus ($6.50/$2.75) 

Seen enough of Bors, and really like what I see in Eaglesaurus.

He’s a big, gross, green bugger but he has loads of galloping ability and can blow this field away if he puts it all together.

Has a habit of blowing the start but we are hoping with the three weeks between runs, they have done a bit of work on that at home. He’s drawn the best he’s drawn so far and he looks like he’s screaming out for a mile.


He has found trouble working through the pack at his two runs to this time in but we are banking on him coming out with them, getting the charmed run the fence, and McDougall producing him full of running where he will have our sworn enemy, the non-winner Bors, firmly in his sights.

Looks great value at this stage.

Canterbury, Race 5 – 12e. Naval Seal ($10/$3.30)

*This horse has since been scratched.*

Dual acceptor in race 3.

Absolute purple bred from Coolmore who was ticking over nicely before he ran into that diabolical meeting that ended up being abandoned at Canterbury.

Missed by a whisker on debut, then some fairly negative tactics in a race where a well fancied stablemate won.

Looks to be ready for the 1550m. Still a maiden but certainly up to the BM64 race where he is drawn better, and they’ve booked Avdulla for both despite being an emergency in one race. 

I’m prepared to back him in either race at good odds.

Canterbury, Race 6 – 9. Hameron ($2.30) 

Far too good for them on debut then made strong ground late behind an exciting staying prospect when 2nd second up.

Heads north to Sydney after two Melbourne runs, one of which he ticked the heavy track box, and the 1900m looks like it will pose no problems at all.

Gets McDonald and looks a very promising type.

Best Bet – 6. Sweet Baby Boom (Canterbury, Race 1)
Next Best – 2. Eaglesaurus (Bendigo, Race 1)
Best Roughie – 7. Johnny Dash (Ipswich, Race 1)
