Wolf’s Racing Guide – Saturday 16 September


Wolf’s Best

Hartnell (Flemington Race 7, No. 1)

Dominant winner of the P.B Lawrence Stakes who looks well placed to take home his third career Group 1 win.

Admittedly he is better at 2000m and beyond, however his win in the Chelmsford Stakes over a mile last year by almost eight lengths was simply outstanding.

He’s been Godolphin’s top galloper for a number of years now and his multiple placings behind Winx read very well for this.

The Wolf is confident his class will rise to the top here and if he brings his best, should prove tough to run down.

Recommended Bet: Price Pump from $1.75 – $1.95.

Double Down: Expect him to settle on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

Circuit Bets

Royal Symphony (Flemington Race 2, No. 1)

Clear top pick after winning his last two starts at Flemington by a combined eight lengths.

He’s the current Guineas favourite who is unbeaten in three from three.

He’s got an enormous turn of foot and all three of his wins this prep he looks to have done it with plenty still up his sleeve.

Expect he’ll settle midfield and with any luck, prove very tough to run down.

Double Down: Want him settled midfield.

Confidence Level: 

Mr Sneaky (Flemington Race 3, No. 12)

Ultra-impressive winner last start who exploded away with a powerful turn of foot to score by over two lengths.

He was superb that day and with another soft run in transit from barrier 6, looks hard to beat.

He’s won over this course and distance before and with the fitness he’ll have taken from his first up run, expect he’ll be cherry ripe for the task at hand.

Double Down: Want him settled midfield.

Confidence Level: 

Jukebox (Flemington Race 5, No. 2)

Unbeaten in three career starts this colt by Snitzel looks well placed to make it four on end.

First up last start he won the Group 3 Vain Stakes against a classy field and the key booking of Craig Williams, suggests he’s the pick over Catchy.

Expect he’ll sit on the speed from barrier 2 and with a positive ride looks the one to beat.

Double Down: Expect he’ll sit on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

Swampland (Flemington Race 6, No. 11)

Talented mare from the Henry Dwyer Yard who managed to string three wins on the trot this prep.

Last start she was an absolute tragedy beaten, settling far too back in the field and finding trouble late to finish a narrow second behind Oregon’s Day.

Expect she’ll do the same again here, but back on the big Flemington track, should have all the space she needs to power home from the rear.

Double Down: Expect she’ll settle at the rear of the field.

Confidence Level: 

Bolter

Isorich (Randwick Race 9, No. 6)

Gelding who is consistently sent around at massive odds and always runs honestly.

His last three starts he’s SP’d at $15, $25 & $40; which has resulted in a win and two placings.

He’s as honest as they get and The Wolf is expecting another big run from him at a price.

He’s been handed barrier in 3, where he should be able to position himself on the speed early go through his paces from there.

He’s consistently underrated by the bookmakers and The Wolf is confident that at $26/$7.25 he’ll run a big race.

Double Down: Expect he’ll sit on the speed.
