The Wolf’s Jumps Guide: Bendigo
Race 1 – Maiden Hurdle: No.8 Shockemohle
This is a very nice maiden hurdle and jumping debutant Shockemohle looks the value runner. From the Brett Scott stable, he has been racing well of late with a quality flat win over 2040m, winning by 3.5L over Black Stardom. The wide alley should not pose an issue.
Race 2 – BM120 Hurdle: No.6 Mulaga
Going wide here with maiden Mulaga for the Robert Smerdon stable. Has had just a single run for the yard and was honest enough running seventh beaten 4.9L at Cranbourne over a mile. Straight into this and looks to have been kept under wraps, so there could be more than meets the eye. A strong watch on betting but definitely worth a crack.
Race 3 – Dreschler Hurdle: No.2 Gingerboy
The Dreschler is an outstanding affair and the promising jumper Gingerboy looks the best of them. He blitzed his rivals in his first three jumps runs before just missing out in the Australian Hurdle. He was good that day and has been excellent on the flat in two ruins since, last start running fourth at Caulfield over 2000m. The one to beat.
Race 4 – Mosstropper Steeplechase: No.1 Sea King
Arguably the best chaser in the Southern Hemisphere, Sea King looks to have the Mosstropper at his mercy. After winning under 70kg in New Zealand, he returned to Australia to win the Thackeray in an absolute canter. He won the Mosstropper last year and this field is definitely no tougher. The champ should be saluting.
