BEST BET 🏆

Race 8:  No.13  WEWILLROCK  ($4.40 with Bet Right)

Former Kiwi galloper WEWILLROCK is now with John O’Shea and after one start on Australian soil, looks set and ready to go on with it in this contest. Last start, the El Roca gelding came off a win at his last start in NZ when he lined up in a BM78 Hcp at Rosehill and impressed when finishing second behind the handy Devil’s Throat in the 1200m event. He ran the trip out, 6.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in the race and set a new personal best with that effort. He takes on Listed company here but has placed twice from two Group 3 contests previously, the latest being in the Inglis Cambridge Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) at Te Rapa. Now rock-hard fit after four starts this preparation, he is ideally drawn in gate two and looks a major player in this event.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 7:  No.9  DEMOCRACY MANIFEST  ($5 with bet365)

Waller and Prebble team-up again here with DEMOCRACY MANIFEST who returns to the mile trip and looks well placed to bounce back. Last start, the Flying Artie gelding was slowly away and settled back in the field. Turning for home, he spotted them eight lengths where Kerrin McEvoy switched back to the inside and while never a winning chance from there, the four-year-old still motored home to finish (unplaced) within 1.6 lengths of the winner. The 1600m looks ideal for him now and with McEvoy riding at Eagle Farm, Brett Prebble gets the job here. With a better start and a trouble-free run, he looks poised for a return to the podium.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 5:  No.10  CENTRESTONE  ($8.50 with Ladbrokes)

The Chris Waller-trained CENTRESTONE faces her biggest test to date here but has the runs on the board that puts her right in the mix to take out this contest. Last start, the Hinchinbrook mare was fresh off a five-month break when she brought up the hat-trick, taking out a BM68 Hcp over 1350m at Doomben. She ran her last 600m, 5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here. She also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. The four-year-old steps-up in grade here and has Brett Prebble aboard for this assignment. Winning form is good form and she looks a genuine winning chance again.
