Wagga Tips May 7


Wagga Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 4 Delightful Dream

This gelding has plenty of upside and there was obviously an opinion of him early, with the Joseph & Jones partnership taking him straight from a Narromine country win on debut to contest a Provincial Class 1 at Hawkesbury.

Tipped out after that July 30 attempt where he was competitive but not as comfortable on a heavy track, Delightful Dream resumed off a good spell with a second at Canberra in March before being heavily supported over this track/trip on April 5.

Despite having some excuses on in that fifth-placed finish, he looked to settle much better with Blaike McDougall taking the reins for the third-up win and carrying 3kg less on Friday, can go back-to-back as he appears as the one with the best turn-of-foot in this field at 1000m.


Wagga Best Bet - Race 4 No. 5 Splendiferous

A half-sister to a Group Three winner in Ballistic Boy, Splendiferous was very green over her first two campaigns but given plenty of time following a September failure last year, has started to mature into a nice galloper.

Recording back-to-back wins this preparation, this filly has run good time on both occasions with her 1200m Maiden win at Newcastle on March 30 rating better than the 64's taken out by I Say Hello (Group Three placed at her next start) and Rustic Steel (third in a 72 following that).

Going from Maiden to 64 level is never easy, but she did it quite comfortably on April 22 when stepping up to 1400m, bettering the smart Adelaide's Light victory on that same meeting by around three and a half lengths.


Wagga Value Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Black Duke

While he does have the 62kg impost to lump which is no easy feat over the mile, this gelding brings easily the best form lines for the 2021 Wagga Guineas, including a third in last Saturday's Hawkesbury Guineas.

The blinkers were applied to Black Duke prior to that outing and although unlucky when held up at a key stage in the run home, was able hit the line strongly for third with a return to a firmer surface also helping bring about a much more competitive showing.

You could easily name four or five runners from that Hawkesbury Guineas field that would be outright and clear favourites in this three-year-old affair if one of them was backing up and not this gelding, who has been going around at big odds in stronger races.


Wagga Feature Tip - Race 7 No. 6 Yonkers

There doesn't appear to be much depth to the 2021 Wagga Gold Cup field, with two to three legitimate chances on current form, and this Chris Waller-trained gelding is the one they'll have to roll.

A third-up winner over Realm Of Flowers, a talented staying mare that was unlucky to not then take out the Manion and Sydney Cups, Yonkers was then sent to Melbourne with the drop to 2000m on April 24 resulting in an absolute romp at Caulfield on April 24.

With the exception of Paths Of Glory who goes up 4kg off a his third-up victory, this feature is in no way harder to what he contested last start and carrying 55kg with Damien Thornton staying in the saddle, he only goes up 1kg.


Wagga Roughie - Race 8 No. 3 Brothers Of Antrim

Running into Dreamline, a short favourite who was coming off a midfield finish in town, Brothers Of Antrim settled well in the box-seat via his debut and knuckling down to chase hard, was able to reel in his more experienced rival late with that duo clearing out by more than five lengths on third.

That Maiden rated very well for that January 22 program and stepping up to what looked a more favourable 1200m trip on February 5, it was a forgivable performance as he was stuck in what was by far the worst part of that Canberra track (wasn't as comfortable on a Soft 7).

Although we haven't seen Brothers Of Antrim at the trials ahead this return, he goes straight to 1200m first-up with Michael Cahill sticking from that first campaign and with a pinch of luck from a wide draw, looks the forgotten runner in the early markets, now returning to a good surface.

Splendiferous has been faultless in two slick wins this preparation and despite the weight, is clearly the one to beat in Race 4 from Wagga this Friday.

Delightful Dream (Race 2), Black Duke (Race 6) and Yonkers (Race 7) are all leading chances in their respective events.

In the last, Brothers Of Antrim makes some each-way appeal at big odds.
