We have identified a few serious gallopers that look perfectly placed at Taree today and a standout at Wangaratta. Our top pick is well placed and will prove hard to beat at his second race start.
Wangaratta is racing on Soft 6 with the rail Out 3m 900m – 400m, Out 3m WP – 1400m, True Remainder.
Taree is racing on a Good 4 with the rail True.
Sticking with WEIGELA to break through today. Has finished runner-up at his two starts to date and will be looking to atone his narrow defeat to Keeva at Muswellbrook last start. Has drawn to get the run of the race and will be fit and ready to fire today. Looks the winner.
1st: No10 WEIGELA 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No3 Subtle Grey; 3rd: No11 Zubrowka; 4th: No1 Harry And The Duke
OCTANE (BEST BET) is the one to beat and looks ready to break through here today. Just missed on debut when narrowly beaten by Simcha at Cranbourne a fortnight back and will strip fitter second-up. Has drawn to get the run of the race and looks a serious hope. Should be winning.
1st: No13 OCTANE 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No11 Written Letter; 3rd: No9 Kasimba; 4th: No3 Eagle Point
Lightly raced filly HERMOSA REWARD has won her past two starts and will be looking to rack up the hat-trick here today. Fought hard in the straight when defeating Arugula by half a length at Scone last start. Is racing in good form and looks well placed to make it three on the trot. Serious chance.
1st: No3 HERMOSA REWARD 2nd: No1 Rage Against; 3rd: No8 Banri De Hero; 4th: No2 Clunes Rocket
This looks like a perfect race for the ultra-consistent ONE INVINCIBLE CAT (NEXT BEST BET) to take out and make it successive victories here today. Looked impressive when storming to a dominant 1.4 length victory at Quirindi last start and has drawn to get the run of the race and be very competitive once again. Ticks all the boxes and looms as the one to beat.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No10 ONE INVINCIBLE CAT 2nd: No6 Party Host; 3rd: No11 Caper; 4th: No7 Ticket to Fly
Sticking with KIRK ELLA who looks a serious chance in the final event of the program at Taree today. Beaten by Impulsive Maneuver on this track last start and can atone that length defeat second-up from a break. Will look to cross from the wide gate and settle near the speed. Will take plenty of catching. Key player.
1st: No5 KIRK ELLA 2nd: No3 Nicco’s Lass; 3rd: No4 Akamin; 4th: No7 Jackknife
