2010 Crystal Mile Tips

October 23rd, 2010

The 2010 Crystal Mile will run today at 2:40PM AEDST at Moonee Valley Racecourse. With 13 lucky horses making the run, you should read on for our best 2010 Crystal Mile tips to help you with your betting.

Our pick to win the 2010 Crystal Mile is Rockpecker, in the Luxbet fixed price odds at $9.00 to win. Rockpecker finished second in his last start in the Listed Superstable Stakes, and looks to have improved quite a bit recently. There are good reasons that the 7 year old isn’t the odds on favourite, but most are definitely undervaluing him

For places, we have confidence in several runners. Our top pick to place is Snow Alert, starting from barrier 2 and coming off a second place in the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup. In fact, this 5 year old has been performing very well throughout 2010, improving greatly since last year.

We also think that Drumbeats and Rock Kingdom look good to place. These two might have been contenders to win the 2010 Crystal Mile if they hadn’t drawn such wide barriers, and they are both talented enough to put in a good effort to take down a place.
