BEST BET 🏆
Race 4: No.1 SIZZLING CAT ($2.80 with Neds)
Local galloper SIZZLING CAT ticks all the boxes here to suggest he will take beating today. Last start, the Sizzling gelding ploughed through the Heavy 8 conditions where he took out a BM66 over the mile at Nowra. Holly Durnan rode him a treat that day where he came from just behind the pace to finish best and take home the major prize. Durnan sticks with him here where he gets the gun-run from gate one and maps to settle better than mid-field, on the fence. Four top-two finishes in his past five starts suggest he is in career-best form and already a two-time winner here, he looks the best of the day.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3: No.8 SMILER MARSHALL ($7 with Ladbrokes)
Albury galloper SMILER MARSHALL is no stranger to the Wagga track and in good touch this time in, looks a serious contender here at odds today. Last start, the Warhorse gelding came off three-straight podium finishes when he finished fifth in Open company over 1000m on his home track. Trapped three-wide without cover most of the way, he wasn’t disgraced crossing the line 2.5 lengths behind the winner that day. Fiona Sandkuhl sticks with him here, having ridden him in nine of his career starts (winning three of those) and the claim here sees him carry just 53kgs for the race. Four starts at the track have resulted in two wins and a runner-up finish so he will feel right at home as he heads to the barrier today. He gets all the favours from gate one here and the Heavy 8 should suit after four of his six victories have come on wet tracks. He looks great value today.

Race 7: No.8 NATS ENOUGH ($8.50 with Unibet)
Local trainer Wayne Carroll saddles-up NATS ENOUGH here who is three starts into this preparation and now looks ready to win. Last start, the Bullet Train gelding was third-up when he beat all but one home in a BM58 Hcp over 1175m at Albury. He was trapped three-wide without cover that day and came from mid-field to finish second in the ten-strong field. Brendan Ward returns for the ride after four previous rides have resulted in a win and a fast finishing second. He gets all the favours today from gate one and already a two-time winner at the track and distance, he looks great value here today.
