Racing writer, JUSTIN DEVINE, looks at tonight’s Wentworth Park meeting which features the finals of the Young Star, Sydney Cup and Million Dollar Chase. Good luck, punters!

Wentworth Park R3 – Young Star Final 520m

19:28 (AEST)

CHRISSIE BANNER (2) made it five wins on the trot last week when she crossed the field easily from box 8 and gave nothing else a chance in her heat. Drawn well in box 2 tonight, she will get all the favours in the run and should lead all the way. The Young Star Final is her’s for the taking. MIDNIGHT ESCAPE (1) put in an eye catching finish to win his heat having dropped out to last early on. He will finish well and is one to include in exotics.


Wentworth Park R7 – Sydney Cup Final 720m 

20:59 (AEST)

HERE’S TEARS (1) began well last week to sit on the speed and was able to hold off SUNSET BOURSKI in the run to the line. The pair meet again in the final and SUNSET BOURSKI (7) will once again have her work cut out for her getting past the well-drawn HERE’S TEARS. With the scratching of track record holder TORNADO TEARS , the pair should space their rivals.

Tip: HERE’S TEARS @ $2.7

Wentworth Park R9 – Million Dollar Chase Final 520m 

22:03 (AEST)

What an exciting 30 seconds! Western Australian superstar, TOMMY SHELBY (8) has enough early speed to cross the field out wide and should have a clear lead as the runners reach the first turn. It will be race over if he does. FLYING RICCIARDO (3) continues to rise to every challenge and will be pouring the pressure on down the back straight. I think TOMMY SHELBY will be too strong in the run home in what promises to be a stirring battle. If TOMMY SHELBY can’t cross early, FLYING RICCIARDO can capitalise and the million dollars could be his.

Tip: TOMMY SHELBY @ $2.9
