Here are our latest Wellington racing tips for today.
Race 5 - 3:50PM KFC ZINGER BENCHMARK 66 SHOWCASE HANDICAP (900 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 7 TANGO STEPZ $3.40 Bet Now!
Scone galloper TANGO STEPZ is in great touch this preparation and looks well placed here to continue the good work. Last start, the Sidestep mare did enough to claim victory in a Class 1 contest over 900m at her home track. She ran the trip just under a length quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. That was off a podium finish in a Highway Class 2 at Randwick the start prior. Reece Jones was aboard for the Scone victory and has the reins again today. Ideally drawn in gate three, she maps to get the gun-run here and is a genuine winning chance today.
Race 6 - 4:26PM KEIRLES PHARMACY WELLINGTON CUP SHOWCASE (1700 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 10 LAILA DE VEGA $5.50 Bet Now!
The John Thompson-trained LAILA DE VEGA comes in nicely at the weights here and will take some beating. Last start, the Lope De Vega mare tried her heart out at Randwick (on the Kensington track) where she beat all but one home in a BM78 over the 1550m trip. She ran it out, 3.5 lengths quicker than benchmark which is 3 lengths better than her closest rival here. Today, she maps to settle mid-field and if she can reproduce a similar finish to that of last start, she will be right in the mix again today.
Race 7 - 5:05PM HERMITAGE HILL WELLINGTON BOOT SHOWCASE (1100 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 14 TIDAL IMPACT $4.40 Bet Now!
To the big one of the day and not unlike previous years, there are several winning chances in this year’s Boot. While she didn’t beat much on debut, I’m still running with the Wyong galloper TIDAL IMPACT who I believe will use the 3kgs weight advantage she has over the boys here and really give them something to catch. The Shalaa filly trialled twice before hitting the track, running second at Wyong, then winning her second at Gosford comfortably by three lengths in heavy going. She then made her debut on a Heavy 8 at Coonamble where she destroyed her opposition. Leading all the way, she found another gear in the run home and put nine lengths on them over the line. Understandably, she ran the fastest overall race sectionals that day. The track is currently rated a Soft 6, however, with clear skies and 27 degrees forecast for today, I think we can expect an upgrade. Darryl McLellan retains the ride here and the filly carries less weight as well. With a ton of early pace here, I believe the race could be won in the first 500 metres. If she can settle in the first half dozen and reproduce that same turn of foot as last start, she will take beating here.
