Murwillumbah Tips August 20


Murwillumbah Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Our Rebel

Tough when winning a Maiden at start two back in March at a huge price when the blinkers went on, this son of Dissident is clearly no slouch and off a nice trial win in July, he looks to have come back a more furnished galloper in this second campaign.

Our Rebel was able to back up the good trial with a first-up win at the Gold Coast which was full of merit, as he did plenty of work early to land outside the leader which dropped off quite early in the run home, leaving this gelding vulnerable, but he pulled away again late.

With the exception of Ausbred Cooee who is plummeting in grade, although has no winning form on good tracks, this certainly isn't any harder and rolling along under 3kg claimer Jasper Franklin, he does look the one on the up in another winnable race.


Murwillumbah Value Bet - Race 7 No. 9 Macchina Volante

This gelding will need every bit of the 7kg advantage if he is to roll Willo Titto, a proven weight carrier who I think should be the clear favourite, although outside of her and perhaps Ready To Humble, there isn't much in the way of quality in the Murwillumbah Cup.

Prepared by local trainer Stewart Campbell, Macchina Volante is unbeaten from both attempts on his home circuit and while they were a part of stretch where he won four in a row (all of his career victories), he's still been competitive in stronger races since then.

As the only runner making any ground from the back of the field in the Casino Cup in his third outing this winter, he's been improving gradually with every run and what appears as a target assignment, I give him an each-way chance in Friday's feature.


Murwillumbah Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Arctic Wolf

An ex-Mike Moroney-trained galloper in Victoria, it was clear that Arctic Wolf wasn't going to make it in Melbourne, although he wasn't exactly disgracing himself with some Benchmark 64 form which is certainly good enough to stack up in these areas.

These staying affairs/lower country cups on the NSW country circuit look perfect for this five-year-old who is now under the care of Brett Dodson, making his stable debut when five weeks between runs and dropping in trip for the Sawtell Cup.

Off an honest performance there, he stepped back up to ten furlongs via the Ken Howard on Coffs Harbour Cup Day where he got home well, and with a little more improvement predicted with that trip under the belt, the winkers now go on.

Arctic Wolf is a strong each-way chance in the last while in the feature (Race 7), Macchina Volante has some claims at decent odds.
