Wyong for midweek racing for Sydney this Wednesday. We have 7 races on the card, with some small yet intriguing fields on offer. Rail is out 3m and there is some rain about, at worst we will be on slow going.
QUADDIES (races 4-5-6-7)
Skinny Play: 4 - 1,2,5 - 3,4 - 8,9
Wide Play: 3,4,5 - 1,2,5,6 - 1,3,4 - 3,6,8,9
BEST BET: R4 – 4. MOLLYFIED
Next Best Bet: R1 – 1. PLAGARIST
Best Roughie: R2 – 8. MISS SHANTI
No1 PLAGIARIST (NEXT BEST BET) comes out of a very good race in debut at Randwick on Cup day, he was in the wrong part of the track and really charged through the line there. The step up in distance does look ideal for him here, and this is a weaker race. Blinkers on, he looks the one.
No5 IMPULSIVE was solid enough on debut in what looks an ok race, and the step to 1600m suits.
No4 MOONMO was quite good first-up in what looks to be a good race, she should improve.
No7 SASUBA comes out of that same race as Moonmo and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 IMPULSIVE
No5 FALCON ISLAND has been trialing in very good style leading into the debut run, Gai has the team flying at the moment and they should be respected.
No8 MISS SHANTI (BEST ROUGHIE) charged through the line on debut and resumes here after a quiet trial. Expect to see her run well here.
No3 ELEMENTAE was good enough on debut, and the step up in distance here should suit.
No1 AFRICAN ACADEMY gets Shinn on board here and has been quite good in both starts.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 MISS SHANTI
No4 VALERIA should have won last start simple as that, from the gate she shouldn’t find as much trouble in the run here and have the last shot.
No2 TIKI BAR won well last start in a race she should have won. She should improve off that and run well.
No6 GRACEFILLY should jump and lead from the barrier here. She won well on debut and looks a nice horse.
No5 DYSLEXIC won well on debut, in pretty smart time. Hawkes team is starting to fire at the minute, respect them.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 GRACEFILLY
No4 MOLLYFIED (BEST BET) comes out of a good race last start where she was left a sitting shot in front. She gets in well at the weights after the claim for JVO here who rides her quite well, her record at the track is also quite good and she looks the best of the day here.
No5 SUNSET JEWEL comes back to the scene of two good wins here. Second-up she should improve.
No3 HILLARY STEP comes out of a good Saturday race last start, and the step up to 1200m shouldn’t be an issue.
No1 LIVE TO DREAM has quite a good record, and has trialled well coming into this.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 LIVE TO DREAM
No5 GENETEAU resumes here, and her record is better than what it reads. She should sit just behind the leader here and pounce late.
No1 DIFFICULT TO GET has trialled in slick time coming into this, he has a very good record and comes out of some good races.
No2 FANNING comes out of some nice races at Canterbury and should enjoy a soft run here.
No6 ART’S GOT A GUN won in fast time last start when leading all the way, and has to be a chance again here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 ARTS GOT A GUN
No4 WALLANGARRA has been very good winning the last three, he is a stayer on the way up and looks very hard to beat again.
No3 BEJING BOARD won very well last start, the step up in trip suits and he looks to have acclimatized to Australia now.
No1 COYS has been in brilliant form as of late, from the gate Parr will roll across and give them something to chase.
No5 MOQUEEN has been going ok enough as of late. She never reached the heights connections would have hoped. But this is her grade.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 MOQUEEN
No9 HIGH POINT won as expected last start at the short quote, I think he is an improver over time and the step up to 1600m suits.
No8 KORODON was quite good first-up running right through the line. Now to 1600m second-up. Ticks all boxes.
No6 TAHSIN hasn’t become the horse I thought he would have, he drops in grade here and has his chance to win again.
No3 VICTIME DE L’AMOUR started fav in a Saturday race last start and wasn’t up to that level. Back in grade he is a chance.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 KORODON
