Raceday wagering review

The wagering review of Saturday's TAB.com.au fixed odds betting for races at the Carrington Stakes meeting at Randwick and The Valley.

RANDWICK

RACE 1
Silent Impact made an immediate impact for punters with the $2.50 favourite far and away the best backed in the first with close to 60 per cent of the market and multiple $1,000 bets at $2.50 and $2.60.
BETS: Silent Impact - $2,000 @ $2.90, $1,500 @ $2.50 

RACE 2
Plymstock’s Golden Slipper odds were cut from $101 into $34 after claiming race two.
She held only a tick over 4 per cent as sixth best backed in the race at $11. Favourite, Wild Calm ($3.80) dominated betting with 40 per cent of the share and despite leaving the run too late has shortened for $34 into $26 for both the Golden Slipper and the Blue Diamond.
BETS: Plymstock - $1,000 e-w @ $13 & $3.40

RACE 3
Markwell Dreamer ($19) and Jason Collett produced one of the best wins of the day despite being a nightmare result for many punters. After getting out to as long as $23 pre-race he attracted only a handful of bets over the $200 mark. 
BETS: Markwell Dreamer $400 e-w @ $21 & $5

RACE 4
Room Number was the worst backed starter in race four and had blown out from $34 to $71. But the long-shot broke plenty of hearts in holding off well supported favourite And We Danced ($3.80) who had close to half of the market. The biggest bet for the winner was $200 each-way at $61 and $12.
BETS: Room Number - $200 e-w @ $61 & $12

RACE 5
The money came for White Boots during the day and it paid off for punters who backed it from $8.50 to $5.50 and a share of favouritism with Jungle Book, who was also well supported as best backed in the race.
BETS: White Boots - $1,000 @ $5.50 multiple times

RACE 6
Toomuchtobear almost lived up to his name but managed to edge Desert Icon in a photo. The Chris Waller-trained gelding started at $1.75 and occupied a subsequent 60 per cent market share with it.
BETS: Toomuchtobear - $5,000 @ $1.75

RACE 7
Shadow Crush went from $8.50 to $4.80 and back out to $6 on the third line of betting behind the heavily backed Salina Dreaming ($3.30) and Osamu ($4.80), while Broken Arrows and Lancaster Bomber also enjoyed stronger market support by the time they left the gates.
BETS: Shadow Crush - $2,000 @ $5

RACE 8 
Special Reward ($9.50) was just that for punters who stayed loyal to the Kris Lees gelding in the Carrington Stakes after he had drifted from $7 today and an opening $5.50. Purple Sector was the $3.50 favourite but Through The Cracks was best backed at $4.60.
BETS: Special Reward - $2,000 @ $10, $1,400 @ $9.50 

RACE 9 
Another thrilling finish with Tim Clark grabbing a third winner with Lackeen ($4.20) pipping joint favourite Canasta ($3.90) who was the best backed in the race ahead of Kingsheir ($3.90) who finished third.

RACE 10
Waihaha Falls was the pick in the last for punters moving from $4.20 to $3.50 before dropping back to $4 by the jump but couldn’t hang on as Bring The Ransom saluted at $8.50. 

MOONEE VALLEY

RACE 1
Duchy Of Savoy was $2 favourite but the market was spot on with Unflinching ($2.30) best backed with close to 40 per cent of the hold and maintaining an unbeaten record.
BETS: $3,000 @ $2.30

RACE 2
After opening at $8 during the week, Counttheheadlights started $4.60 joint favourite with the drifting Sumatra, despite the latter taking twice as much money. 
Counttheheadlights tightened from $101 into $34 in the Golden Slipper futures following the win.
BETS: Counttheheadlights - $5,000 @ $4.20

RACE 3
Daqiansweet Junior gave punters a few nervous moments in the straight but a collect in the end with almost 50 per cent of the money on the $2.40 favourite, headlined by a $10,000 outlay at $2.40.
BETS: Daqiansweet Junior - $10,000 @ $2.40, $3,600 @ $2.25, $2,000 @ $2.25, $1,500 @ $2.40 multiple times.

RACE 4
Outsider, Swelter Magic was as short as $9.50 at one stage pre-race but was kicked home by Matthew Cartwright at $12. Runner-up, Lost Impact jumped as $3.60 favourite, in from $4.60, despite third place-getter, Salto Angel being the most popular with punters at $5.
BETS: Swelter Magic - $350 @ $11

RACE 5
Yulong Command made it two in a row for Cartwright and plenty of punters were cheering too with the $2.30 favourite taking a 70 per cent stranglehold on a market he had dominated all week.
BETS: Yulong Command - $5,000 @ $2.30

RACE 6
Invincible Jet ($8.50) may have been fourth best backed in the race, but holding off Deep Dive ($7) was appreciated by those punters who viewed it as one of the each-way plays of the day, as there were multiple bets of $1,000 at $9 and $3.40 taken.
BETS: Invincible Jet - $1,000 e-w @ $9 & $3.40 multiple times

RACE 7
High N Dry drifted from $8 this morning to $12 before settling at $11. Despite this there were still enough savvy punters about to make the seven-year-old gelding the third best backed in the race, with Fundraiser ($2.70) attracting the majority of interest with over 45 per cent support - almost twice as much as Unanimous ($3.40).
BETS: High N Dry - $2,000 e-w @ $11 & $2.70

RACE 8
In The Boat’s impressive win was clearly appreciated as it had been eyed off early by punters as the one they wanted with 45 per cent of the market and a $2.80 to $2.30 shift.
BETS: In The Boat - $4,000 @ $2.30

RACE 9
Galgani wasn’t without backers after producing a strong finish in the last, having shuffled between $10-$11 through the day while favourites Mariamia ($3.80) and Patrika Gold ($4.40) missed out on a place.
