Wednesday Racing Previews & Tips - Warwick Farm 1st August
We return to Warwick Farm as we look to start the month with a few winners and have identified a few key hopes here today.
Chris Waller looks certain to leave Warwick Farm with at least a handful of winners as he has a stranglehold of most races at Warwick Farm here today. Can he take all seven races out? Never say never - he just could.
Warwick Farm is racing on a Good 4 with the rail True.
Warwick Farm Race 1 - 1:00PM BOOK SPRING NOW HANDICAP (1100 METRES)
Sticking with the Chris Waller trained ALTAIR who’s resuming from a spell but has had two trials leading into this and is sure to be very competitive in the opening event of the program here today. Looked good at his only two starts to date - both on this track - and that experience will take him a long way in today’s opener. Big chance.
1st: No4 ALTAIR 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No1 Adana; 3rd: No2 Charge; 4th: No4 Danawi
Warwick Farm Race 2 - 1:35PM TAB HANDICAP (1100 METRES)
Sticking with debutant WONDERBABE, the Snitzel filly has looked good at her trials and ready to bring that form into her debut race today. Drawn well and is sure to be very competitive in an open race with plenty of debutants.
1st: No9 WONDERBABE 2nd: No4 Olive Leaves; 3rd: No5 Quenya; 4th: No7 Sure Knee
Warwick Farm Race 3 - 2:10PM HALF YEARLY MEMBERSHIP HANDICAP (2200 METRES)
FOLLOW SUIT (NEXT BEST BET) looked good when defeating Allcash by a short margin on this track last start and he looks ready to make it successive victories here today. Raced in some handy races in June behind the likes of Only Tiger and Plymouth Road, so we expect a huge run from this Show a Heart gelding here today. Hard to beat.
1st: No2 FOLLOW SUIT 2nd: No1 Mutarakem; 3rd: No5 Thunder Road; 4th: No3 Segenhoe
Warwick Farm Race 4 - 2:45PM RIBCHESTER - 4 x G1 WINNER HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
SPRING CHARLIE is unbeaten at his two starts to date and looks ready to rack up the hattrick of victories here today. Resumed from a break with a tough win at Gosford beating Rafha’s Choice by half a length. Drawn well and looks ready to make it three from three. Huge chance.
1st: No4 SPRING CHARLIE 2nd: No1 Bull Market; 3rd: No2 Crafty Tycoon; 4th: No3 Nicof
Warwick Farm Race 5 - 3:20PM ATC HONG KONG TOUR HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
SWEET SCANDAL looked ultra-impressive when winning on this track last start and is perfectly placed to make it three successive victories here today. Trained by Chris Waller, we expect this mighty mare to be there when the whips are cracking and hopefully first past the post. Smart mare who can go onto bigger things in the city with a win here today. Key player.
1st: No2 SWEET SCANDAL 2nd: No1 Royal Fashion; 3rd: No5 Gracefilly; 4th: No3 Devolving
Warwick Farm Race 6 - 3:55PM DAWN APPROACH - CHAMPION 2YO IN EUROPE HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
SEAGLASS (BEST BET) looks ready to bounce back into the winner’s circle after finishing half a length from Our Malambo at Randwick last start. Will strip fitter second-up and is sure to be very competitive in this grade. Has won twice and placed from five starts to date. Leading hope and the top pick.
1st: No8 SEAGLASS 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No4 Dawn Raid; 3rd: No9 Impasse; 4th: No2 Catmosphere
Warwick Farm Race 7 - 4:30PM #THERACES HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
Tough race to close the program, but we are sticking with the Bjorn Baker Gelding SHOCK ALERT who was beaten by 2.8 lengths by Follow Suit on this track last start and can atone for that defeat here today. He has a good record over the distance and looks well-placed in a very open event.
1st: No7 SHOCK ALERT 2nd: No4 Intueri; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No2 Dalmatia Prince; 4th: No11 Ataraxia
