Wolf’s Racing Guide – Saturday, 30 December

Wolf’s Best

Ozi Choice (Sandown Race 6, No. 7)

Ozi Choice is racing in career best form at present and there is no reason to suggest he wont be winning his third race in a row.

Last start at Caulfield he was sent straight to the lead by jockey Ben Thompson and was never headed from there.

He is very well weighted with 54kg on his back and if Ben Thompson can find the lead early he’ll take running down.

Recommended Bet: Ozi Choice to WIN.

Circuit Bets

Night’s Watch (Doomben Race 5, No. 9)

Night’s Watch is a progressive stayer from the Darren Weir stable who with clear running room looks very hard to beat.

Last start in the Werribee Cup he was sent out a heavy favourite and looked a near certainty, but he ran up multiple backsides in the the straight that day and could only manage fourth.

Had he got clear running that day he arguably would have blown them away and The Wolf is banking on exactly that happening here.

This field has more quality than the Werribee Cup, but Night’s Watch has plenty of upside and he should love every metre of the 2200m on offer.

Recommended Bet: Night’s Watch to WIN.

Confidence Level: 

Cabeza De Vaca (Doomben Race 8, No. 3)

Cabeza De Vaca drops severely in class off his last start Group 2 placing and should be able to lead all the way here.

Last start he flew out to lead when handled by Josh Parr and put on over 10 lengths on the field mid-race, but he wasn’t able to hang on as Crack Me Up caught him to win by half a length.

Stephen Baster takes the reins here and The Wolf expects he’ll be sent straight to the lead once again and take running down from there.

Recommended Bet: Cabeza De Vaca to WIN.

Confidence Level: 

Zourkhan (Randwick Race 8, No. 6)

Zourkhan placed behind Sedanzer last start and The Wolf is expecting a much improved run second up.

At his second up run last prep he was stepped up to 1800m at Flemington, where went on to lose in a photo finish by a nose.

Tye Angland sticks aboard from last start and if he runs up to his second up performance of last prep he’ll take beating here.

Recommended Bet: Zourkhan to WIN.

Confidence Level: 

What A Shock (Sandown Race 7, No. 13)

What A Shock finished third at Geelong over 1435m last start and should relish the step up to the mile on offer here.

Last prep over the mile at Flemington he impressed when placing second behind Thaad, but he beat home some smart performers such as Wayanka, Widgee Turf & Jaminzah; all of which have gone on to enjoy success in the city.

Expect from barrier 1 for Riordan to position him just behind the leaders where he should be able to get the gun run throughout.

Recommended Bet: What A Shock EACH WAY.

Confidence Level: 


Geneteau (Randwick Race 9, No. 9)

Geneteau showed an endless amount of talent early in her career and off her last start second placing at Canterbury looks ready to win.

She flew out to lead last start and almost stole the race, but Duchess Pedrille was able to grow a leg in the final 100m and nab her on the line.

She’s drawn well in barrier 6 so expect James Innes Jnr to take her straight to the front and give them something to run down from there.

Recommended Bet: Geneteau EACH WAY.
