BEST BET 🏆
Race 8: No.12 FILEETA ($3.70 with Palmerbet)
Victorian visitor, FILEETA has impressed with her only three starts to date and looks well placed to give her first look at the Wagga track a real shake today. Last start, the Deep Field mare was second-up when she broke through for her first career-win. With Alysha Warren in the saddle, she did some early work, but found the front soon after and simply ran them off their legs, winning by more than a length on the line. Warren has the reins again today as the mare draws perfectly in gate three and third-up here, has plenty of up-side about her. With a clear run to the line, she should prove hard to hold out in this contest.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5: No.3 SUPERABUNDANT ($6.50 with Bet Right)
The Corstens Team saddle-up SUPERABUNDANT here for his first run for the stable and coming off a six-week freshen-up, he looks set to pick up where he left off today. Last start, the Redwood gelding broke through for his maiden win at Mudgee and did it in fine style. Koby Jennings was aboard that day and had him in the one, one with cover. On straightening, he came off the leaders’ heels, took control and went on to win by almost two lengths across the line. Danny Beasley is in the saddle today and ideally drawn in gate four, maps to settle in the first half-dozen. Finishing third in a recent trial, he should be ready to run today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 7: No.3 UNIQUE PRINCE ($8 with Picklebet)
Local galloper, UNIQUE PRINCE is third-up today and ticks enough boxes to suggest he is a winning chance here at odds. Last start, the Shaft gelding was having his second start for the Peter Morgan stable when he finished third in the Jerilderie Cup over 1400m. this looks no harder as Mathew Cahill returns for the ride (after finishing third on the six-year-old, two starts back at Gundagai. Already a winner when third-up and a two-time winner at the track and distance, he will arrive late, but have a full head of steam when he gets there.
