Wagga Tips May 6


Wagga Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 8 Berenib

Despite two strong jump outs at Flemington, the latest of those being a narrow second to what looks a handy one in Silent Theory (big effort as runner-up at Listed level on debut), the market took a set against this filly late prior to her debut.

Settling back in the field in that April 22 event at Pakenham, it was still a pass mark given she was a little raw and ultimately found the 1200m a little slick which isn't a surprise off her breeding (by American Pharoah and out of a Choisir mare that was a Listed winner at 1900m).

Holding feature nominations for the Brisbane Winter Carnival including one for the Group One JJ Atkins, Berenib now steps up to a more suitable 1400m with Blaike McDougall engaged for the Hayes & Dabernig yard, a combination that has recorded 17 winners this season (21.3%).


Wagga Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 This Skilled Cat

While he is a galloper that tends to regularly go around at a double figure quote, this gelding is underrated and with a good strike rate along with bringing better form than Shenandoah, the market may have the first two market elects the wrong way around.

Shenandoah has had plenty of chances campaigning around BM60 level in Canberra whereas This Skilled Cat is a 70-rater that should've gone close to winning the Albury Mile two starts back before a much deserved win in a midweek 64 from Bendigo.

Defeating some younger rivals on that occasion, a few that had city form lines, this five-year-old gets relief on Thursday courtesy of the 3kg Hannah Williams claim and with even luck from an inside draw, is well placed to go back-to-back.


Wagga Value Bet - Race 6 No. 11 Larmour

The first few efforts this preparation were quite poor, albeit over shorter trips but following a much more competitive showing third-up at 1700m, this mare did look to be on track prior to her Canberra attempt on March 17.

Finding what looked a winnable race over the 2000m, she was disappointing although it was noted post-race that she didn't handle a soft and worn surface which does add up given she finally found a good track last start and delivered a big form reversal.

There was money for Lamour at good odds prior to that April 23 attempt and although seemingly is inconsistent at present, she remains on top of the ground for this 2000m assignment, which has been the catalyst for her last two competitive showings.


Wagga Feature Tip - Race 7 No. 2 Lord Von Costa

As the market suggests, it's a very competitive edition of the Wagga Town Plate where a big field has been assembled and in making the selections, you could easily pick half of this field and still miss the winner.

While the current price is warranted for this veteran given the weight he has to spot to some more progressive rivals, it was only last winter where herecorded a third-up victory at Listed level and he's been sound in both efforts this time in.

A runner-up to multiple Group One winner Santa Ana Lane in the 2017 Wagga Town Plate, there's certainly nothing near that sort of quality getting around in this and with the blinkers now being applied, is one runner that is creeping under a guard a little.
