With the famous Warrnambool carnival due to kick off next month there is an increase in the number of jumping races to feed the “Bool’s” most famous three-day feast of racing.

 

Today will see a steeple race kick off the eight-race card, followed by a hurdle and a maiden hurdle – all races are run over 3200m.

 

Getting Leggie returns from a stint at the famous Oakbank Easter weekend meeting to prepare for the “Bool” in the third race.

 

Winning jockey Steven Pateman goes back on the five-year-old after riding him to an imposing win in his maiden hurdle at Warrnambool on March 15.  He strikes only four in opposition in the race and looks a great banker for punters. The track is rated as a Soft 5 (Wednesday) but with further rain forecast it could be downgraded. The false rail is at the True Position.
