Here are our Wagga Wagga tips for today.
Race 1 - 11:30AM JUNEE PRIME LAMB WAGGA WINTER SPRINT (1000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 5 LOGAN RIVER $5.50 Bet Now!
Albury trainer, Mitchell Beer saddles-up LOGAN RIVER here (Best odds $5.50 with Sportsbet) who performs well on the Wagga track and resuming today, looks right in the mix here. Last start, the Snitzel gelding ended his last campaign finishing mid-field in Open company at Canberra in a1000m sprint. He ran the trip, 5 lengths above benchmark, the second-best here. Today, he will be on fresh legs as he returns from a lengthy 23 weeks off the scene but did win first-up last preparation on this track in wet conditions. Ideally drawn in gate three, he maps to settle just off the pace and has Simon Miller back in the saddle who is a three-time winner on the five-year-old. With a trouble-free run here, he looks a genuine winning chance today.
Race 2 - 12:05PM JGW HARVEST BENCHMARK BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP- HEAT OF THE WAGGA STAYERS SERIES (2000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 3 GIRLS ARE READY $5.00 Bet Now!
Vying for a spot in the Stayer’s Series Final, the Joe Cleary-trained GIRLS ARE READY (Best odds $5.00 with Ladbrokes) is in search of her first win this preparation and this contest looks the ideal place to make it happen. Last start, the Better Than Ready mare took on city class gallopers in a BM72 over 1550m at Canterbury where she wasn’t disgraced, finishing fifth in the event, beaten less than three lengths. She covered the journey in even (benchmarking) time, the best here by 5 lengths. She drops sharply in class here, returning to country racing and does have webbed feet when it comes to wet tracks. Six career starts in heavy conditions have resulted in three wins and two minor placed finishes giving her a huge boost to her chances today. Drawn the fence, and with Blaike McDougall back aboard, she ticks too many boxes for me to disregard.
Race 5 - 1:50PM LUCAS AND CRAWFORD ASPHALTING CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1300 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 4 OFENBACH $4.40 Bet Now!
Victorian visitor OFENBACH (Best odds $4.40 with Neds) is unbeaten this time in and looks well placed here to continue his winning run. Last start, the Ilovethiscity gelding had his first look at the Wagga track and it turned into a winning one as he took care of a Class 1 field over 1200m. He opened up the $2.70 favourite but blew like a gale force wind to leave the barriers a $6 chance (proving, yet again, drifters do still win). He ran his last 600m, 4.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by 5 lengths. He also recorded the fastest overall sectionals for the event that day. He steps un in grade here and will tackle the 1300m for the first time, however, you are only as good as your last race and based on that cliché, I have the four-year-old as our best of the day.
