We'll message you the best tips for today!
We have studied the form from all races across the country for Wednesday, December 1st, and provided our best horse racing tips.
With rain battering a large portion of the eastern seaboard, it has marred what would otherwise be a very strong card of midweek racing.
*Update as of Wednesday morning – The Doomben meeting has been moved to the Sunshine Coast Polytrack, with the listed Recognition Stakes been pulled off the card. Our best tip of the day was in this race and has been replaced*
We have made five selections in total and are very confident in four of those selections whilst we think our best roughie of the day represents excellent value at juicy double figure odds. So, read on below to find our best horse racing tips for this Wednesday, December 1st.
Warwick Farm, Race 1 – 1. Boomsong ($4.40)
Some nice first starters here that I expect to battle it out. Wolf Queen looks a very racy filly who is going to prove hard to catch, but I think the Your Song gelding out of the Newnham yard is the one to beat here. He is bred to love the wet and his most recent two trials have been super impressive. He did a bit wrong in his first, but we loved the way he improved in the second trial and I expect him to put this lot to the sword in similar fashion.
Warwick Farm, Race 2 – 5. Pizarro ($3.10)
Drew 10 of 11 on debut and was never better than four deep throughout. A bold effort to run second to a leader who never went around a horse and he beat the rest easy enough. No favours again from the draw but it may not be of a disadvantage to be drawn out wide on a heavily rain affected Warwick Farm track and we are probably getting over the odds on account of this. The O’Shea stable is flying at the moment and James Macdonald sticks which is a big positive as we all know that pairing forms a lethal combination.
Geelong, Race 2 – 11. Swerving ($2.70)
First starter for Leon and Troy Corstens. This three year old filly has shown plenty of promise at the jump outs and Damien Oliver has piloted her on a couple of those occasions, and he sticks here. By boom sire Extreme Choice and gets a good track off an ideal draw. They have kept her pretty safe bringing her along slowly and found a very winnable midweek race here at Geelong. I expect she will win this and head on to much better things.

Warwick Farm, Race 5 – 4. Empress Bea ($19/$4.60)
Fairly talented little mare this one who has clearly had a few little niggles. She finds a very winnable metro race here. Hasn’t been shown up in either trial but disregard her second trial when she was only there to stretch her legs on the all-weather, and go off her first trial where she was under a good hold throughout. She was beaten by Tailleur on debut then won at just her second start, before winning again when first up next prep. She is only lightly raced but does her best work fresh and is worth a solid each way ticket at the price.
Doomben, Race 8 – 2. Niccanova (Abandoned)
Belmont, Race 5 – 1. Pale Rider ($2.50)
While Pale Rider’s form may not jump off the screen, considering he finished 12th of 13 in his last start, he looks to be set up perfectly for this race. After breaking his maiden in late September, Pale Rider has come 3rd in a listed race before contesting the Group 2 W.A. Guineas last start, which is a much tougher task than a Wednesday Class 1 meeting. Another important factor is that Mitchell Pateman, his jockey for today’s race, has stated that the horse seemed like it would always be better suited to 2000m rather than 1600m, and that is the distance that he finds here today. We are hoping that he can get in a good spot, find a back to follow and then be too good in the straight, helping us finish the day with a winner.
Best Bet – 1. Pale Rider (Belmont, Race 5)
Next Best – 1. Boomsong (Warwick Farm, Race 1)
Best Roughie – 4. Empress Bea (Warwick Farm, Race 5)
