BEST BET 🏆
Race 4: No.6 SOOBOOCO ($2.30 with Unibet)
Newcastle galloper SOOBOOCO has had no luck in his past four starts but gets another chance here to shake that maiden monkey off his back. Last start, the Sooboog gelding made it four-straight runner-up finishes when he took home second prize again in a 900m Midway Maiden Plate on his home track. He travelled three-wide most of the way which took its toll in the run home. He was then spelled and has since returned to work with an impressive win in an 845m trial, on this track two weeks ago. Jason Collett has the reins today and from gate six, the three-year-old maps to settle in the first half-dozen. All things going well today, he looks a strong chance of finally breaking through for that first win.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7: No.3 CAPTAIN BOND ($6 with bet365)
The Rosehill-trained CAPTAIN BOND sees the Wyong track for the first time today and resuming from a six-month absence, looks well placed for a big performance here. Last start, the Capitalist gelding ended his last preparation finishing mid-field in a BM64 Hcp over 1000m at Warwick Farm. From gate seven (of nine), he travelled wide most of the way and did well to finish within two lengths of the winner that day. He has since returned to work and is off on the right foot, winning a 900m trial on his home track. He won first-up last campaign and ideally drawn in gate two today, he looks a strong winning chance in this contest.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8: No.6 SIR GODRIC ($11 with Ladbrokes)
The Kim Waugh-trained SIR GODRIC is second-up and ticks enough boxes here to be considered a real chance for victory in this contest. Last start, the Dundeel gelding was fresh off a 22-week break when clearly in need of the run, he finished mid-field in a Midway Class 1 Hcp over 1200m at Gosford. Already a winner at the track and distance, the three-year-old gets all the favours here jumping from gate one and has Keagan Latham sticking with him for this assignment. He won second-up last preparation and looks a good chance (currently) at each-way odds of giving this a real shake today.
