Evacuation (Race 3, No.4) is a rising star and The Wolf expects him to resume a winner.
This More Than Ready colt couldn’t have been any more impressive at Kembla on debut stopping the clock at 56.20s over the 1000m. Gai Waterhouse tipped him straight out and even bypassed the Queensland winter riches to aim him up at the spring.
The Wolf also has plenty of time for Sezanne but he expects Evacuation to be a genuine Golden Rose and Guineas player so should be winning this. His trials have been outstanding too.
Unfortunately for the Wallabies, a similar blowout looms this weekend. All Blacks -18.5.
The Wallabies were a rabble last week, clueless with the ball in hand while dropping off tackles at an alarming rate without it. Hit hard by injuries and with several stars struggling form, Michael Cheika has few options at his disposal to bolster a side short on confidence. The All Blacks have only had to make a few minor tweaks, and should be able to pick up where they left off in Sydney in front of a packed house in Wellington. Beauden Barret was unstoppable last week, while the ABs’ offloading and support play was first-class.
