It’s Taree Cup day and Chris Waller looks like the man to follow there while at Moruya, Greg Stephens has one resuming and boasts an impressive first-up record.

TAREE

Race 7 - 4:22PM STACKS LAW FIRM TAREE GOLD CUP (2000 METRES)
As the song goes, it’s a long way to Tipperary, and the same can be said with the trip from Sydney to Taree, which is exactly what Chris Waller is doing with HOGMANAY as he attempts to take home the Taree Cup. Punters were left stunned as this Lonhro gelding got the better of a BM78 field at Rosehill last start, and recorded his first win in over 18 months. He finished seventh two starts back, although he was beaten only 1.7 lengths that day. Last start however, he sat outside the leader to the turn, then took over and fought off a wall of challengers in the 2000m contest to dust off his trophy cabinet and bring up win number six of his career. If he can bring that form here today, he will prove mighty hard to run down. Tommy Berry is making the 3.5-hour drive north just for this ride so he won’t be holding back. Newcastle trainer Kris Lees has a trio of runners here and they appear to be the main dangers. But when you have a Waller horse in form, you want to be on Berry here.



MORUYA

Race 6 - 4:05PM SOUTH COAST CLUBS CUP OPEN HANDICAP (1435 METRES)
Beware the first-up runner, for they may bring you unstuck. This was a profound theory I was once taught, however, there are always exceptions and with GARROS here, I believe an exception should be made. The Lope De Vega gelding has made three resumptions to racing, and won on two occasions. Last preparation, he resumed here off a 12-week break and won a Class 1 over 1425m while carrying 58.5kgs. Three starts back, he scored a solid win at Nowra over the mile in a BM66 contest. He then enjoyed a five-week freshen-up and returned to the track at Canberra where he was narrowly beaten in a BM70, finishing second to  Le Cavalier. Last start he was just behind the placegetters in another BM70 at the same track over 2000m. Here, the five-year-old resumes off a 12-week break and is a track and distance winner as well. He carries 5.5kgs less than his last start and based on his fresh record to date, he will prove hard to hold out here.
