Here are our Wagga Wagga tips for today.
Race 4 - 1:05PM SMALLMON BROTHERS WASTE CLASS 1 & MAIDEN PLATE (1800 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 6 VINTAGE DIESEL $4.60 Bet Now!
Wangaratta galloper VINTAGE DIESEL (best odds $4.60 with Sportsbet) gets his first look at the Wagga track today and with conditions to suit, looks well placed to make his debut here a winning one. Last start, the He’s Remarkable gelding broke his maiden status on his home track, winning the 1590m contest on a heavy track whilst carrying 59.5kgs. He ran the trip, 8.6 lengths slower than benchmark which is the third best effort in this field (remembering he was on a Heavy 9 that day) and a new personal best for the three-year-old. He also posted the fastest overall sectionals for the race. Today, he steps up in distance and has a wide gate to contend with but gets all the help with Blaike McDougall taking the reins for the first time. He’s a proven wet-tracker and drops in weight today, putting him right in the mix.
Race 5 - 1:40PM IRON JACK BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 9 MOUSE ALMIGHTY $6.00 Bet Now!
The locally-trained MOUSE ALMIGHTY (best odds $6 with Bet365) ticks all the boxes here and should give a bold sight in this contest. Last start, the Star Witness mare stepped-up in grade when taking on a Class 3 field over 1000m at Albury. She sat just behind the pace and ran home gamely to grab third prize on a Heavy 9 that day. She ran the trip, just under a length slower than benchmark (0.8) which is the best effort here by more than 7 lengths. Two of her three career wins have come on wet tracks and she is a two-time winner here as well. Molly Bourke sticks with her here and after her claim, the four-year-old carries just 54kgs today (2kgs under the limit) while dropping sharply in grade. Ideally drawn in gate two today, she gets the gun-run along the fence, settling just behind the pace and looks set to continue her good recent form as a genuine winning chance here.
Race 9 - 4:05PM PIEPER NOACK COMMERCIAL OPEN HANDICAP (1300 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 1 UP TRUMPZ $8.00 Bet Now!
Carrying top weight today, Queanbeyan galloper UP TRUMPZ (best odds $8 with Palmerbet) is a track specialist and despite the 61kgs, he lines up here as a serious player. Last start, the Zariz gelding took on strong city company when he lined up in a BM78 over 1200m on a rain affected Rosehill track. In a big field of 13 runners, punters sent him out, unwanted as a $31 chance. Drawing the outside gate (13), he settled last where he was nursed by Kath O’Hara who sat patiently on him to the turn. Still more than 10 lengths adrift, O’Hara wound him up and he hit the line strongly, grabbing third prize on the line, beaten less than two lengths. He ran the trip, 6.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here by more than 6 lengths. He covered his last 600m, 8.5 lengths faster than standard, which is a rate, more than 5 lengths better than his opposition today. He returns to country racing today where seven starts at the Wagga track have resulted in three wins and two runner-up finishes, putting him right in the mix. Nick Souquet hasn’t ridden him for more than two years but has a good record with the six-year-old, boasting three wins and two minor placings from his seven previous rides. It is a big step up in weight, but also sharp drop in class and with a favourable draw here, he maps to settle near mid-field with cover and if they set a strong early pace today, he will be storming home at the finish and at great each-way odds, can give this a real shake.
