Wednesday’s bet grabbed the cash and for Thursday we head to Scone, Pakenham, Pinjarra and Rockhampton. Here is The Wolf’s set.
|Best Bet||Euroman (Pakenham Race 3, No.5)|
|Circuit Bet||Brahmos (Pakenham Race 7, No.13)|
|Circuit Bet||Gypsy Toff (Rockhampton Race 2, No.4)|
|Circuit Bet||Escalator (Scone Race 3, No.2)|
Euroman was an impressive winner in this grade two starts back at Ballarat before dropping in trip and running midfield in stronger company last time in Adelaide. Getting back out to the 2500m will suit as will the wide expanses of Pakenham. There is no hotter trainer and jockey combination right now than Brad Rawiller and Darren Weir.
Recommended Price: $3.20
Brahmos made a big impression when he won on debut in BM64 company at Sandown last year, before placing at the same track and then running midfield at Moonee Valley prior to a spell. He recently resumed with a sixth placing of ten over 1000m at Ballarat, a trip that was always going to be too short for him. The extra trip today will suit and the booking of Craig Williams is a strong lead as well that he will be ready to go here.
Gypsy Toff is a two year old debutant for the strong local stable of Tom Button and made a huge impression in winning a recent barrier trial by nine lengths when hardly touched. Even more impressive is that she managed to run the fastest trial of the day, faster even than the open class horses. Nigel Seymour will take her to the front and the will be lucky to see which way she went.
Recommended Price: $1.70
Formerly trained by Robert Smerdon, Escalator had one run for a third placing on debut at Ballarat when well backed. The winner of that race was Hiyaam, who went on to be placed in multiple group level races including the VRC Oaks. Escalator has trialled nicely for this for his new trainer Bjorn Baker and he looks ideally placed to break through today.
Recommended Price: $4.00
