Wolf’s Racing Guide – Saturday 9 September


Wolf’s Best

Menari (Rosehill Race 7, No. 5)

Boom colt who kicked off his Golden Rose campaign by winning the Listed Rosebud Stakes by over a length.

He wasn’t fully tested that day and won with ease against a quality field.

His fourth placing in the Golden Slipper reads very well for this and whilst he meets a much tougher field compared to last start, he looks the one to beat.

He’s got the wide draw here, but if Josh Parr can slot him in early he’ll take plenty of running down.

Recommended Bet: Price Pump from $2.45 – $2.70.

Double Down: Expect him to settle midfield.

Confidence Level: 

Circuit Bets

Suncraze (Rosehill Race 2, No. 1)

Very talented gelding from the Melanie O’gorman Yard who broke a string of six second placings with a win last start in the Highway Handicap at Randwick.

Since then he’s won a trial by nearly five lengths and whilst it was against a relatively weak field in the bush, the manner in which he won was very impressive.

He’s ready to win first up and any improvement off his last start victory should see him winning.

Double Down: Want him at the rear of the field.

Confidence Level: 

Daysee Doom (Rosehill Race 6, No. 3)

Group 3 winning mare who has only run outside the top three once in her last seven outings.

She was set to have her first run back a fortnight ago, however mysterious test results surrounding trainer Ron Quinton led to her being scratched.

She’s trialled since in readiness for her first up run where she beat home English and Takedown, both of whom are Group 1 winners.

With two trials under her belt and familiar rider in Andrew Adkins aboard, The Wolf is confident she’ll be ready to fly first up.

Double Down: Want her settled on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

He’s Our Rokkii (Moonee Valley Race 8, No. 5)

Group 1 Toorak Handicap winner who is second up here against a field of stayers resuming.

He finished alongside Black Heart Bart last start, who has since come out and placed second behind Vega Magic in the Memsie Stakes over 1400m.

This is an outstanding form reference and against a field who will likely be more effective over 2000m and beyond, he looks the one to beat.

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

Confidence Level: 

Bolters

Supreme Effort (Rosehill Race 8, No. 1)

Veteran gelding who resumed very well behind Bonny O’reilly last start at Rosehill.

He’ll be fitter for that run and with a second up record 5: 2-2-0, you can be confident he’ll be fully wound up for his second up task.

Magorrian takes off 3kg which helps; dropping him back to 58kg from 61kg and with the inside barrier draw should receive a soft run in transit.

The Wolf is confident his race experience will rise to the top here and at $14.00/$4.00 you can bet each way with confidence.

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

Confidence Level: 

Here To There (Moonee Valley Race 9, No. 5)

Not often do you get $10.00/$3.25 about a horse who has won his last two starts but that’s what we have on offer here.

This horse has really hit his straps his last three starts, winning twice and narrowly being beaten by a 100-1 shot the other.

He won well last start when sitting just behind Mihany and from barrier 3 maps to do very similar again.

The Wolf is confident that he’ll be able to measure up once again and should take beating once again.

Double Down: Want him in the lead.
