The best trainers and jockeys in New South Wales head to Warwick Farm this Wednesday for an exciting and competitive mid-week metropolitan meeting. Can anyone stop the inform Chris Waller from dominating another Sydney program?
Warwick Farm Race 4
#1 Pretty Wild
Pretty Wild looks well placed, dropping down significantly in grade. The Brazen Beau mare attacked the line at her latest outing, and she should get all the favours on Wednesday, jumping from barrier one. The 1.5kg apprentice claim is advantageous, and the step out to 1300m could prove a masterstroke. Her winning record is the primary concern.
Zorocat is ready to peak. The Toronado mare has been running well without threatening, and she should be rock-hard fit at this stage of her preparation. From barrier four, she will get the run of the race, and if the gaps appear at the right time, she can figure in the finish. The 3kg apprentice claim brings her into all winning conversations.
Anagain is knocking on the door! The Hinchinbrook mare meets easier opposition, and she has been crying out for the step out in distance all preparation. From barrier three, she can sit closer to the speed in transit, and if she isn’t run off her feet early, she will be there when the whips are cracking. Her style of racing will always need luck!
Suggested Bet: Pretty Wild @ $6.50
Warwick Farm Race 5
#10 Summer In Siam
Summer In Siam is ready for a first-up tilt! The Spieth gelding has impressed in two recent barrier trials, and from barrier one, he can camp on the leader’s back throughout. The rising four-year-old has had the ultimate gear change applied recently, and he has been specked at a hefty price in early betting. The Annabel Neasham camp is flying, and I expect a spirited performance.
Windshadow will have supporters after producing an eye-catching run first-up from a spell at Kembla Grange. The Redoute’s Choice gelding meets easier opposition, and he looks ideally placed after the 3kg apprentice claim. From barrier eight, I expect him to roll forward and make his own luck, and if he is allowed to dictate the tempo, he might lead them in a merry dance. His winning record is the primary concern.
Step Aside will start favourite after an impressive first-up win in a hot-form race. The Redwood gelding savaged the line late, and he strips fitter here after his recent outing. From barrier two, the lightly raced three-year-old has options, and with even luck in transit, I expect him to figure. The Chris Waller and James Mcdonald combination will continue to attract market support until the barriers open.
Suggested Bet: Summer In Siam @ $21.00
Warwick Farm Race 6
#3 Anythink Goes
Anythink Goes looks over the odds. The So You Think gelding is coming off a resilient win at the track and distance, and he seems well-placed to continue winning against similar opposition. From barrier two, he will take up the role of race leader, and if he can slow the clock down during the middle stages, he may catch his rivals napping. The rising five-year-old is racing in great spirit, and I expect him to figure in the finish. The weight rise is his biggest challenge.
Gracias Amigo can run a big race at cricket score odds. The God’s Own gelding drops in grade significantly, and his last-start run at Scone was better than it looks on paper! He is well placed after the 3kg apprentice claim, and he can get all the favours from the plumb inside draw. His record at the distance must be respected, and he is a must for all broader multiples and exotics.
Touristic savaged the line first-up at Randwick. The Frankel gelding broke all the clocks on course, and he put the writing on the wall for a big second-up performance. From barrier eight, I expect the big boy to sit midfield with cover, and if he is presented at the right time, he can make his presence felt in the shadows.
Suggested Bet: Anythink Goes @ $6.50
Warwick Farm Race 7
Walkin’talkin’ can finish the day for punters at a great price! The I’m All The Talk gelding has trialled well leading into his first-up assignment, and the Gary Portelli-trained four-year-old traditionally performs well fresh. The 3kg apprentice claim could prove a winning move, and he excels at the distance. The awkward barrier is the primary concern.
Luna Rocks is another runner that can run a drum at a juicy quote. The Hellbent filly was an impressive winner at the end of her last campaign, and she has been luckless since resuming. She meets easier opposition on Wednesday and looks well-placed to drop back to this grade. She is weighted ideally after the apprentice claim, and if she can find some cover jumping from the carpark, she can threaten. Over the odds!
Insurrection will start close to odds-on. The Russian Revolution gelding performed admirably in a decent race last start, and he looks well placed and weighted at Benchmark 72 level. He was impressive in a recent barrier trial, and after a bit of freshen-up, I expect him to be cherry ripe for this event. I fear this race may be an afterthought.
Suggested Bet: Walkin’talkin’ @ $21.00
