HMA MATERIALS HANDLING CLASS 1 HANDICAP Tips (Race 4)
Wyong Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Spanish Fighter
While this gelding is getting quite deep into what is now his second racing preparation, he continues to hold form and with a massive step up in grade via his latest effort, is well worth another chance over the mile.
Following a first-up victory at Hawkesbury, the son of Bull Point has been thereabouts in four subsequent efforts and despite going around as a 200/1 chance in the Group Three Carbine Club Stakes, he certainly wasn't disgraced in a midfield finish.
Sprinting past the Albury Guineas quinella of Easy Campese and Impressive Lass on that occasion, who have both been competitive in town since that April 10 contest, that form is certainly good enough for a Provincial Class 1 albeit they will need to be running on.
HMA FLOW & INDUSTRIAL CLASS 1 HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)
Wyong Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Mission Legend
Having combined for a winning strike rate of 21% over the last 12 months, the Josh Parr and Mark Newnham partnership always has to be respected with the pair set to team up again in the fifth from Wyong on Thursday.
Mission Legend is still work in progress but has shown talent, with a pair of seconds either side of a Kembla Grange Maiden victory last October and was tipped following a November 25 flop, when clearly at the end of his preparation.
Not looking comfortable at all on his April 3 resumption when crowded for room and then on heels when the sprint went on, we ideally want them to go forward early as he did in his March trial, taking out a Warwick Farm trial in good time after being allowed to roll along.
HMA GEOTECHNICAL BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)
Wyong Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Stoltz
This is a little weaker overall than the Warwick Farm 64 he also accepted for yesterday, with connections making the right call to resume over 1000m at Wyong, a circuit that he is unbeaten on.
After working early and being beaten a pimple first-up last preparation, Stoltz responded in style, saluting as a well-supported favourite second-up over this track/trip before going back-to-back on December 10, beating a well fancied Yangarra Rose in the process.
Getting some relief after 1.5kg claim of Louise Day, who doesn't necessarily have to lead but has that early option irrespective from a low draw, this gelding arrives off one trial where he was comfortably reeled in late, but the handbrake was firmly engaged over the last 100m.
