Peaceful State has won his last two starts in Adelaide and off those runs is expected to be hard to catch here. He placed in the G1 Australian Guineas behind Grunt and if he runs up to that benchmark here he will be winning. John Allen takes the reins which is a plus and from the draw he’ll be hard to beat.
Recommended Price: $3.90
Kiwia finished off strongly last start for fourth in the G3 Premier’s Cup and should be much improved off that run for this. He drops 2.5kg from that run and with the inside draw he is expected to sit handy in the run. He’s fit enough to win this and with Michael Dee aboard The Wolf is expecting him to do exactly that.
Recommended Price: $6
Pedrena scored an impressive win last start over this course and distance and The Wolf is supremely confident she will do the same again here. She meets a relatively similar field for this and although she’s drawn wide, she has the gate speed to cross and settle herself handy in the run. She’s 1/1 when third up and The Wolf is expecting this record to extend to 2/2.
Recommended Price: $6
Stragun has placed second in his last three runs and The Wolf is confident that he deserves another chance here. He regularly finds himself thereabouts and decides on the line to let someone else win. He gets another excellent chance to win, however in his favour this time is the barrier draw – last start he jumped from the widest gate in 18 where he was forced to do a stack of work, just to settle on the speed. He jumps from barrier 3 this time where he should do very little work to get on the speed which he can then in turn use to put his nose in front. He can win here and The Wolf is expecting him to do exactly that. The drop in grade and inside draw should see him finish in first.
Recommended Price: WIN
Coldstone is yet to run a bad race this prep and is expected to run well here once again. Craig Williams retains the ride for this and from the wide draw he should look to settle him somewhere on the speed. He’s the fit animal in this race and should be giving them something to run down.
Recommended Price: $8.50/$2.90
