Our Yangtze is an imported galloper who after an unsuccessful stint with the Sam Pritchard-Gordon yard, is now coming into his own for the master trainer, DK Weir. Last time out he stepped up to 3000m and bolted in at Moonee Valley, this race over the same looks no harder and he should go right on with it.
Recommended Price: $2.00
My Zebrinka has chased home talented gallopers at his last couple of starts and The Wolf thinks a favourable speed map, together with a race fitness edge have him well positioned to score today. His main rival here is Dissolution, a talented horse but lacking race fitness and likely getting back in the run. My Zebrinka should be able to get away with this one.
Recommended Price: $4.00
Chris Waller thought enough of Augustus to run him in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes last spring and although he failed there, his fourth placing on resuming at Rosehill was that of a horse going places. He should get a perfect run in a space devoid of much speed, and he is nicely in at the weights in a race where many of his key rivals have imposts in the 60Kg range.
Recommended Price: $4.00
Miel De Lago broke through for an effortless maiden win last time at Penola but it was no fluke as she has been a very consistent galloper throughout her career, with some solid Victorian form on her resume. This is a very weak race and if she handles the step up to 2000m, she really should be winning.
Recommended Price: $1.80
I’m Rosie only beat a field of five on debut but it was the way the two year old filly did it that most impressed The Wolf. She showed abundant early speed to find the front then relaxed nicely, with jockey Luke Rolls only asking for an effort very late as she went on to win easily. Naturally this race is harder but there are no world beaters here and race experience is a big advantage. Look for her to make it back to back wins to kick off her career here.
Recommended Price: WIN
Bit of a Lad is a promising stayer from the Weir camp who is nicely placed in this race. Last campaign he was placed out to 2400m in town, and this is his second run back after a first up sixth at Ballarat. With the fitness benefit of a hurdle trial under his belt and a perfect draw, he can make his presence felt at the business end of proceedings.
Recommended Price: EACH WAY at $17/$4.80
