Track specialist WILLYGOOD (best odds $2.60 with Bet365) comes off a hat-trick of wins at Cluden Park and looks right in the mix again today. Last start, the Reset mare brought up her fourth win in seven starts at the track when she arrived just in time to take the honours in a BM65, here over 1200m. She ran her last 600m, 3.4 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up. Under weight-for-age conditions today, The Roy Chillemi-trained mare drops 4kgs from her last start but is meeting tougher opposition. In career-best form of late, she has a new rider with Graham Kliese having his first ride on the mare while regular rider Stephen Wilson partners the stablemate Grey Missile in the event. She draws the outside gate here but with just the six runners, it shouldn’t be too much of a burden. She maps to settle just behind the pace and if she is still up to it, she will prove hard to hold out again.


Roy Chillemi saddles-up three in this event with WATERWAY (best odds $9 with Ladbrokes) looking great value here. Last start, the Whittington gelding did well to finish second behind the very smart Cleaver Greene after drawing wide and coming from well back on the turn. He ran the trip out, 6.7 lengths slower than benchmark but that still rates the second-best here. He faces three-year-old company again here and has drawn a similar gate but he maps to settle a little closer and should find cover as well. Two of his three career wins have come at the Townsville track and in search of his first win this preparation, he looks a solid each-way chance in this contest.


It could be a big day out for the Roy Chillemi stable today as HIGHER REALM (best odds $2.40 with Sportsbet) looks poised to bring up win number six at Cluden Park. Last start, the Wandjina gelding looked the winner close to home but was nailed right on the line by another Hedley-owned galloper as the Steve Massingham-trained Full Recognition got there in the final stride to take the chocolates home that day. Higher Realm still ran his final 600m 2.6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up. Ideally drawn in gate five today, he maps to get the gun-run right behind the pace and will have the last say in the matter. Eleven starts here have resulted in five wins and as many runner-up finishes as Stephen Wilson remains aboard. All boxes ticked, he looks the best of the day.
