Geelong betting tips for April 24

What Geelong Races
Where Geelong Racecourse – 99 Breakwater Rd, Breakwater VIC 3219
When Wednesday, April 24, 2024
First Race 1pm AEST

Geelong is the destination for racing in Victoria on Wednesday, with a competitive eight-race card on the menu. The forecast promises cool conditions but no rain, and with the track rated a Good 4 and the rail out 3m for the entire circuit, there are no excuses for fancied runners. The action at Geelong will commence at 1pm AEST.

Best Bet at Geelong: Verifier

Despite winning just once in 17 starts, Verifier is without doubt the class horse in this BM64. His form lines this campaign are elite, finishing 3.9 lengths off Another Wil and 1.15 lengths behind El Soleado in much harder races than this. Beau Mertens will have the son of Tivaci settled midfield with cover, and if Verifier puts his best hoof forward, he should exert his class on his rivals late.

Next Best at Geelong: Ruakaka Raider

Cindy Alderson’s Ruakaka Raider caught the eye when flashing home for third at Pakenham over 1600m, with his best work coming late. The step up the 1715m in just his third career start looks ideal in what shapes as a winnable maiden. Barrier one may not be the best for this three-year-old gelding who tends to settle deep, but if the breaks come, Ruakaka Raider should prove too hard to hold out.

Best Value at Geelong: Arqana

Arqana could not have been any more impressive when breaking her maiden first-up at Echuca, giving her rivals a massive start and an emphatic beating. The Merchant Navy mare was next to last on the home turn before unleashing a powerful finish to get the job done in soft fashion. Barrier 17 is offset by her desire to settle at the rear of the field, and with a genuinely run 1412m expected, Arqana should get the chance to salute again at a nice price with online bookmakers.
