WYONG Race 5

#1 Selfless Act

Selfless Act looks well placed in this company. The Panzer Division mare has been rock-solid this campaign, and she looks dangerous jumping from a perfect inside draw. The 3kg apprentice claim puts her into all winning conversations, and her record at the distance must be respected. She has tasted victory previously at the track, and with even luck in transit on Wednesday, I expect her to fight out the finish. 

Pajanti was an impressive first-up winner at Rosehill. The Pierro filly was perfectly rated on top of the speed, and she dug deep late when it mattered the most. The step out to the 1350m looks ideal at this stage of her preparation, and I suspect the tighter Wyong circuit will suit her racing pattern and style. She will look the winner as they run for the doctor. 

Flying Deel resumes with an air of expectation surrounding her. The Dundeel filly is talented, and her debut preparation was as good as it gets. Her recent barrier trials were quiet, and she needs to take a leap of faith here. From barrier four, she can sit in the one out-one back position, and if she has taken any natural improvement during her spell, she can make her presence felt later. The class rise is the primary concern. 

Suggested Bet: Selfless Act @ $18.00


#1 Starman

Starman is knocking on the door. The Zoustar gelding is racing well at Saturday level, and he will appreciate the significant drop in grade here. He savaged the line at his latest outing, and he put the writing on the wall for a next-start victory. From barrier six, he can sit midfield with cover, and if he is presented with his run at the right time, I expect him to prove too strong for his rivals late. The James Mcdonald and Chris Waller factor must be respected. 

Ebony King missed by a bee’s appendage at his latest outing. The Lonhro gelding flew from the clouds, and he looked the winner on first glance. The cameraman settled the result, and the odds-on punters were left eating dirt under the bleaches. I suspect the talented five-year-old has the fitness edge on the majority of his rivals, and he is too classy to dismiss. Watch for the big boy late!

Mchale turned heads late at Warwick Farm fresh. The Shooting To Win gelding savaged the line from a minute back, and he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. He strips fitter after his recent outing, and he looks to have plenty of upside. I am unsure Wyong will suit his racing pattern and style. 

Suggested Bet: Starman @ $4.00

Sandown Hillside Race 4

#5 Samuel Langhorne

Samuel Langhorne is ready to win. All runs this preparation have been full of merit, and I suspect he has been set for this event on Wednesday. The Shocking gelding will eat up every inch of the 2400m, and with the blinkers going on, all roads lead to a well-deserved victory. Barrier one will allow the big unit a soft trip in transit, and if he sees clear air before the final furlong, I expect him to greet the judge before his opposition. 

Auspirit is always thereabouts. The Australia mare doesn’t know how to run a bad race and looks ready to register another win. She finds her right distance and should be rock-hard fit after a lengthy campaign. From barrier five, she will drift back and find her hooves, and if she doesn’t get too far out of her ground during the middle stages of the race, she can loom to win late. Her racing pattern and style will always require an element of good fortune. 

Upwoods was a dominant last-start winner at Pakenham. The Redwood gelding stays longer than your mother-in-law, and he deserves his shot at this level. From barrier three, he will roll forward and pilot the field, and. if he is left to his own device speed, he can lead his rivals in a merry dance. The class rise and the length of his preparation are among the primary concerns. 

Suggested Bet: Samuel Langhorne @ $2.70

Sandown Hillside Race 7

#4 Modown

Modown was good first-up without winning. The Toronado gelding oozes class, and his debut preparation was very progressive. The step out to 1400m is advantageous, and he strips fitter after his impressive fresh performance. The flood of early money indicates another bold showing, and I expect him to reach dizzy heights during the autumn. He looks one of the better bets on a tricky program. 

Shut Eye has made an impressive start to his career. Both runs have caught the eye of punters, and I suspect he is untapped. The seven furlongs will suit third-up from a spell, and I expect him to make his presence felt halfway down the home straight. It may pay dividends to watch for any significant market support. The camp are training winners for fun at present! 

Clavadatsch was a brilliant last-start winner at Bendigo. The Justify filly has been freshened since her stunning victory, and she looks ominous jumping from an ideal inside draw. She looks born to run out a strong 1400m and beyond, and I suspect she has a huge engine under the bonnet. The talented three-year-old will occupy the box seat throughout, and if the gaps appear as the whips are cracking, she can play her part in the finish. This is her acid test.

Suggested Bet: Modown @ $4.20
