Unbeaten this time in, the Ricky Vale-trained RUSSIAN WEAPON looks ideally-placed to bring up the hat-trick today. After winning his last trials, the Whittington gelding came off a six-month stint in the paddock and lined up in a Mackay Maiden. He led all the way that day to win in a tight finish. Then last start, he ran around in a Class B (Non-TAB) at Thangool over the 800m sprint and did it easily that day, putting 2.5 lengths on the field. Ryan Wiggins takes the ride today and from gate three, should take up the front running without too much competition. He is in great touch this preparation and will take a ton of beating today.


This lot often clash around the North Queensland circuit in Open events and its rare to see any of them chalking up back-to-back victories. Today I’m going against that theory and I’m running with FRUGAL who is unbeaten here and looks well-placed to repeat his last start effort. After winning in Open company two starts back at Thangool, he then travelled to Emerald where he never looked comfortable. The All Too Hard gelding finished last that day where he carried 61.5kgs. He then enjoyed a seven-week freshen-up and returned to the track where again he faced Open Class, here over 1100m. With Matty McGillivray aboard, he landed in front and that was all she wrote. He went on to win that by more than a length, after jumping from the outside gate. Today, he faces similar company and after that last win, carries just 2kgs more for this contest. McGillivray remains in the saddle and he is allowed to dictate terms up front, they could struggle to run him down again.
