Wagga Tips April 18


Wagga Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Huntly Castle

After looking a very promising stayer at the back-end of his two-year-old year when recording back-to-back victories including one at Flemington, this gelding never went on with it despite showing glimpses in some handy races.

The Hayes and Dabernig yard persevered, however, and they were rewarded with Huntly Castle breaking a long winning drought on the Christmas Eve meeting from Wagga before saluting again on this circuit again two starts back by a big margin.

While fair last start in the Albury Cup, that was a hard Carnival for the off-speed runners and the simple recipe for this four-year-old is coming back to Wagga where he's unbeaten, both times with Blaike McDougall in the saddle who takes back the reins here.


Wagga Value Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Bombardeo

The step to 1600m is an obvious query, especially with a rise in the weights but the eye-catching last start effort over seven furlongs on the April 5 meeting at Wagga suggested it was worth a try, and he does come back in grade from that Class 2 event.

Now with four runs into what is his second racing preparation and stripping fitter for that last outing (was a month between runs), the son of El Roca has been thereabouts in all seven career starts to date, breaking his Maiden first-up at Canberra.

Shaun Guymer stays aboard this three-year-old on Sunday and although is drawn wide, he has tactical versatility, so it gives them a few options and in a field with a decent tail to it, Bombardeo is a good each-way chance.


Wagga Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Sneak Preview

The winner of this race is exempt from ballot for the $200,000 Wagga Town Plate on May 6, so there's plenty on the line in the penultimate with a big and competitive field assembled.

While he does tend to need that bit of luck with his racing pattern, this lightly raced five-year-old has got a very good strike rate considering that negative, with six wins recorded from 20 starts, and was hard to miss when resuming in the Wellington Town Plate.

Rattling home for third behind a pair of city class gallopers, Sneak Preview generally improves second-up where he hasn't finished outside the quinella (two wins) and he does have the ability to sprint off both slow and fast speeds, which always gives him a sniff.
