Wentworth Park R5 – Paws Of Thunder Heat 1 520m
INCAPACITATED (1) is racing in great form with a Group 3 win in the Christmas Gift last month and a placing in the Group 2 Gosford Gold Cup last start. He has a great record at Wenty and will only need a touch of luck from the rails draw to get the money. ASTON SILK (3) has struggled of late, but has enough speed to find the front and give them something to catch. She can add some spice into exotics.
Tip: INCAPACITATED @ $2.8
Warragul R8 – Group 2 Warragul Cup 460m
The Group 2 Warragul Cup looks a ripper and I’m tipping an upset. CATCH THE THIEF (3) has been racing well of late without winning and he looks over the odds at the $7.5 quote. A proven big race performer he will start well and has a real will to win. SHIMA SHINE (6) flew in his heat last week and will jump an odds on favourite. At his best he wins, but box 6 might be a worry though. ZIPPING ZARBO (5) pinged the lids to lead all the way in her heat and is capable of leading for a long way. Bring it on!
Tip: CATCH THE THIEF @ $7
Cannington R4 – FFA 715m
ZACK MONELLI (4) was a dominant winner over 647m at Mandurah last start. He looks ready for the step up to 715m tonight and can lead all the way. Expect him to get out to a big lead down the back and to hold on in the straight. WICKED RHYTHM (8) is unbeaten over the 715m at Cannington and will pour on the early pressure. He can capitalise on any mistakes. The pair should fight out the finish.
