Wolf’s Best Randwick Race 6, No.3 Solicit
Solicit is a mare right at the top of her game. She found Our Boy Malachi too sharp over 1200m first-up before giving Winx a bunny to chase down at Randwick. She was only beaten a length by the star mare which reads exceptionally well for this. Kerrin McEvoy has really clicked with this five-year-old and if he can rate her as well as last start, she’ll win this comfortably. Staying at 1400m perfect third-up and there’s no obvious pressure, despite the big field.
Circuit Bets Caulfield Race 3, No.4 Mossin’ Around
This filly has come a long way in her first preparation. She won on debut at monster odds beating the smart Tsaritsa. Since then she has been beaten by Hellbent down the straight, with a space back to third. She was then swooped on by Group One filly Risque at this track at her latest outing. The 1400m is new territory for her but she only has to hold her form to be in the money again at each-way odds. Underrated galloper.
Futurity Stakes (Caulfield)
Suavito is the defending champion and returned with a terrific win in the Orr Stakes. Slight query as to whether she flattens out a touch second-up after such a big effort fresh off a long break. Must respect her though. The Wolf thought Turn Me Loose was excellent first-up in the Orr and his form shows he improves sharply second-up. He’s the one to beat and The Wolf is pretty confident about his chances.
Chipping Norton Stakes (Randwick)
Impossible to make a case against Winx. Chasing seven straight wins and now she can race closer to the speed, there are no chinks in her armor. Chris Waller has won four of the past five editions of this race too. Godolphin have three in the race including Hartnell who ran a monster second in this race last year. His spring form was so-so but tipping he can bounce back over the autumn. He looks the quinella horse.
