We'll message you the best tips for today!

We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, April 27, and provided our best horse racing tips

With a short week and an extra metropolitan meeting on account of Anzac Day, it has put some strain on the race fields around the country with relatively small fields in most states, however, there is a winner in every race.

Meetings at Warwick Farm, Sale, and Ipswich provide competitive enough betting races where we think we can get the punters a result.

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 27. 

Ipswich, Race 2 – 2. Anatini ($21/$4.80) 

For anyone who has spent any amount of time at Bundall racecourse between the hours of 1.30am and 6.30am, they will know that Lennie Wheeler is the hardest working man north of the Tweed.

So I’d love nothing more than for him to get himself another handy horse, and this fellow might just be it.

Trialed strongly leading into his debut run but was very disappointing, although there was enough there last start to suggest he is worthy of an each way ticket here.

Tegan Harrison eased him out of the early speed battle there hoping for some luck but nothing went right and he was never better than four deep throughout. Circled deepest and with nothing to take him into the race, he wanted to lay about forcing the rider to switch hands with the stick to get him back on course. All told a good effort to run fifth.

He’s had no luck here from the draw here around the tight Bundamba circuit with a +7m rail but does look suited out to 1200m and if they go mad in front, he could do something here at odds.

Warwick Farm, Race 2 – 5. Ringmaster ($2.70) 

They are always tricky affairs to line up, two year old midweek maidens made up of mostly first starters. But the task has been made a whole lot tougher over the past five or six weeks with very few of these getting a hitout on the grass for the public to line them up.

One horse that has had two such trials is Ringmaster, and he couldn’t have been more impressive in the way he attacked the line at his most recent.

He was the fastest of the 2YO heats that morning, quickening nicely over the 1050m which tells us he might have a slight fitness edge on a few of these that have been bouncing around on the synthetic tracks over shorter trips and he appears to have the turn of foot to overcome the draw.

Tommy Berry sticks, and the barn has a great record with their babies.

Warwick Farm, Race 4 – 4. Main Stage ($2.25) 

I’d normally look for something lightly raced in these kinds of races, stepping up to the trip for the first time and bank on the fact they had more upside to offer than their dour, tried and tested opponents.

But that sort of thinking has to be parked when you are continually confronted with heavy tracks like we have been over the Autumn, and it is what brought us unstuck last Wednesday when one of our best of the day, Hameron, was rolled by this horse, Main Stage.


Superior fitness and a yet another brilliant front running ride from King nullified whatever unlocked potential Hameron has, and we are tipping her to do the same thing again to this lot.

A mostly plain bunch of stayers, some who read a bit short on condition on paper. Expect King to make this a genuine test and expect one of Gwenda’s to hold its form, especially if she is bringing it to town on a seven day backup. 

Ipswich, Race 7 – 2. Arentee ($1.75)

*This horse has since been scratched.*

Another who has been given no favours at the barrier draw but his last start win was too good to not include him here.

There is a heap of speed on paper here so we doubt he’ll want to cross and lead them from the wide draw going up in trip, but he certainly has the tactical speed to be able to slot in just behind them.

If that’s the case, and he lets rip like he did his last start, I imagine they’ll only get a glimpse of the afterburners as he breezes past them.

Is going to need some luck, but worth a ticket if he is priced accordingly.

Warwick Farm, Race 5 – 2. Hold on Honey ($4.00) 

Happy to go with a gritty Joe Pride on pacer on a heavy track coming off a last start win any day!

This should be an interesting betting effort even in spite of the small field where early markets have every runner bar one, well into single figures.

This Counterattack gelding looks to have come back a better horse this time in, and has no doubt been aided by the training regime that sees horses excel in the wet. Thought the rider got a bit cute on him resuming, but they give nothing else a look in second up, bouncing to the front and knuckling down strongly to last.

Third up here, up in grade, but drops in trip. A tricky enough race but he has enough ticks and is backable odds to have him in our picks. 

Best Bet – 4. Main Stage (Warwick Farm, Race 4)
Next Best – 5. Ringmaster (Warwick Farm, Race 2)
Best Roughie – 2. Anatini (Ipswich, Race 2)
