THE NSW town of Wyong is the country racing venue for the gallops action this Saturday.
Plenty of great horses have come from the Wyong races in the past, and with a number of precocious animals running around on Saturday could we see the next star of the track on Saturday?
We certainly hope so, but more importantly, let’s find some winners.
Looking for a new bookmaker ahead of the Wyong card?
Race 1 – Maiden Handicap (1600m)
Auerbach is the best horse in the field based on recent form. The Waller runner ran second behind the super-smart Aqua D’ivina, which runs at Randwick on Saturday, so the last-start should tell the tale.
Race 1 tip: Auerbach to win at Sportsbet
Race 2 – Maiden Plate (1350m)
Spencer looks suited here. The Bjorn Baker runner went down by a nose to La Biere Choisie last-start at Scone and will improve on that run. Expect the horse to break the maiden here.
Race 2 tip: Spencer to win at Neds
Race 3 – Maiden Plate (1200m)
Since debuting at Hawkesbury with a fourth placed finish, Kathaire has not missed the placings in its five subsequent runs. In its last run the horse missed out by half a length, and we anticipate it will improve on that performance.
Race 3 tip: Kathaire to win at Neds
Race 4 – Class 2 Handicap (1600m)
This preparation Mo The Great has won twice and placed once from three runs and looks well placed to win again. The horse has one win from the solitary attempt at the mile and has won carrying 59kg in the past.
Race 4 tip: Mo The Great to win at Sportsbet
Race 5 – Benchmark 69 (1350m)
Choice Harvest drops slightly in class and looks well placed to continue its great form. The horse has not missed a placing this preparation and it we believe it will get the job one once again at this distance that it has won at before.
Race 5 tip: Choice Harvest to win at William Hill
Race 6 – Benchmark 66 (1350m)
Dual Escape is third-up for the first time in its career and we think it will thrive at this point of its career. The horse won brilliantly at Tamworth to break its maiden before winning narrowly at Port Macquarie. We like the Dual Escape’s chances and think it is the galloper to beat in the penultimate event.
Race 6 tip: Dual Escape to win at Crownbet
Race 7 – Class 1 Handicap (1100m)
Kettering won its maiden well three starts back and has gone on to finish second in back-to-back events. This race represents a slight drop in class which is a big tick and we think it can record its second career win from eight attempts.
Race 7 tip: Kettering to win at Neds
