BEST BET 🏆
Race 5 No. 4 STAR BUYER – ($2.05)
STAR BUYER looks set to break the Maiden in Race 5 of the day at Wagga. The Geoff Duryea-trained galloper has placed in three of six of his career runs with two of those coming at his first two runs this preparation in races that have provided a few winners. At his most recent start, not much went right in the early to middle stages before running 5th at Hawkesbury over the 1300m. However, the son of Written Tycoon does come in with the best last start benchmark figures of any runner and this does look easier.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3 No. 1 MARAKOPA– ($2.20)
The stayers step out over the marathon 3800m distance in the Riverina Cup and MARAKOPA has the class to overcome the hefty impost of 67kg. The six-year-old comes in full of fitness and was a dominant winner at Randwick four starts ago over the 2400m before running a creditable 5th in the Brisbane Cup (3200m) back in June. He has since finished runner-up in a couple of races in Sydney. This is a massive drop in class from races such as the Brisbane Cup and worth pointing out that he is a previous track winner.
