Wangaratta Tips 8/08/2022


Race 1 No. 7 A VOTRE SANTE – ($2.80)

A VOTRE SANTE can open up proceedings with a win. The five-year-old has had just the two career starts and resumed at Ballarat with a runner-up performance behind the promising Mathew at Ballarat. She was well beaten by that horse but form looks good with the winner running well in a Saturday race at Moonee Valley since then. The daughter of Tavistock produced the second fastest last 200m behind the winner that day and looks like she will appreciate the step up to the 2000m. Billy Egan rides and the pair save ground from barrier 1. 



Race 6 No. 1 ELVEENA- ($2.80)

We stretch out over the 2000m in a BenchMark 58 and ELVEENA just needs to run up to her recent effort that saw her finish runner-up at Sandown over the 2100m in a BenchMark 70 on July 6. On that occasion, the locally trained mare settled on the speed but couldn’t quite go with Hard Squeeze at the business end. She went 3.3 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is 7.5 lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner and better than what any horse in this race has produced in the past two years. She has the fitness in the tank with two runs under her belt at the trip now, while the 2kg claim for Hannah Edgley gets her down to a winnable weight.
