Unlucky not to have won last start, after copping a costly check on the first turn hampering his chances.
He jumped well that day only to be checked twice which cost him lengths upon straightening down the back straight.
He appears to be the speed runner on paper and if he can cross and lead early he’ll prove tough to run down.
Aston Bolero flies out of the boxes like a rocket and with an inside draw looks a major player in this.
There is a lot of speed drawn out wide and The Wolf expects this could cause problems for those drawn in boxes 5 – 8.
He’s a genuine 450m dog and can struggle in the finish over 500m, but if he can put a few lengths on them early and create a lead he’ll give them something to chase.
The Wolf reckons he’s drawn to win in box 3 and if he finds the rails early he’ll prove tough to run down.
Victorian National Sprint Heat 2 – 515m
Sandown specialist that’s won eight from 11 over this course and distance.
He’s won his last three here in Free For All company breaking 30.00 each time.
That is an excellent form reference and although he meets a much tougher field here than in his previous three starts; he loves the track and with a clean run looks the one to beat.
