Horse Racing Tips & Best Bets, Good Friday Races – Friday 2nd April, 2021

Friday will see plenty of quality thoroughbred racing across the country with our focus being on the meeting at Ascot and Launceston. Take a look at our horse racing tips and best bets for Friday 2nd April, 2021.

Ascot – Race 5 5:40PM AEST

No. 3 Koranis – Bet Now: $3.50

Koranis looks to have gone to another level this campaign and he finds himself in a very winnable contest at Ascot this afternoon.

There was plenty to like about his last start win and he should once again be able to make his own luck right on the speed.

Barrier five is ideal and he should have every possible chance in the run.

Ascot – Race 7 6:50PM AEST

No. 6 Axel ‘R’ Eight – Bet Now: $10.00

Axel ‘R’ Eight is a much better chance than his current odds of $10 suggest.

He has been racing well this campaign and he is one of the fittest horses in this field.

He will make his own luck right on the speed and he will give his rivals something to catch.

Ascot – Race 8 7:25PM AEST

No. 2 Samizdat – Bet Now: $3.30

Samizdat is well-placed to return to winning form in the Old Comrade Stakes.

He wasn’t beaten far in the Grandstand Cup last start and a repeat of that effort would have him right in the mix.

I am confident that he is the class runner in this field and he should have every possible chance in the run.

Launceston – Race 7 5:54PM AEST

BEST BET: No. 1 Lesnar – Bet Now: $5.00

Lesnar doesn’t win out of turn, but he finds himself in a very winnable contest at Launceston this afternoon.

He wasn’t beaten far in his past two race starts and this race does look like a genuine drop in class.

Barrier four is ideal and he will have every possible chance with Daniel Ganderton in the saddle.
