Wentworth Park R4 – Mixed 4/5 520m
AVA WINE (7) has been racing in great form recording three wins from four starts before having no luck in the Group 1 Rookie Rebel last start. Returning to Wentworth Park this week and dropping in class, she has enough early speed to cross to a handy spot in the run and can be too strong in the run home. FANTASTIC VICTOR (1) was a brilliant 5+ length winner from box 5 last week and jumps from box 1 tonight. He will get a gun run and is the danger.
Tip: AVA WINE @ $2.3
The Meadows R8 – Group 1 Super Stayers Final 725m
HOUDINI BOY (1) chased strongly from box 7 in his heat last week and couldn’t quite catch the tearaway leader ZACK MONELLI in the run home. From a much better draw tonight, he will get an economical run in the early stages and can finish too well for his rivals. ZACK MONELLI (3) will ping the lids once again and give them something to chase. The pair can battle out the finish.
Tip: HOUDINI BOY @ $2.2
The Meadows R9 – Group 1 Australian Cup Final 525m
WA superstar broke his maiden status at The Meadows last week with an emphatic 7+ length win from box 5 and he has drawn to get some nice cover into the race tonight. If he can jump cleanly he will pour the pressure on mid-race and get the prize. He is a great price. Favourite FERNANDO BLUEY (6) is airborne at the moment with nine wins from his last 10 runs but he might struggle to clear the field at box rise. I’m happy to take him on.
