Saturday Racing Tips – December 9, 2023

The following are free Australian horse racing tips for Saturday, December 9, 2023. The focus is on the racecards at Ballarat and Randwick. The Group 1 Northerly Stakes (Race 8) at Ascot is also covered.

Best Bets denote runners that stand out as the single best selection for their race. Strong Bets denote runners that are strong selections, but the separation between them and next best selection isn’t as strong. It’s not uncommon for us to recommend two Strong Selections for the same race. Quinella and Trifecta recommendations are made for races with multiple key chances.

This article will be updated leading up to the race day.
