Wagga Tips August 27


Wagga Best Bet - Race 1 No. 2 Alfstar

*Alfstar has been scratched from Race 1 at Wagga


Wagga Value Bet - Race 4 No. 3 First Lady

Warwick Farm trainer Gary Portelli looks to have found a nice race with First Lady who arrives to Wagga now third-up from a spell and should find it much easier coming back to Country level.

An honest daughter of Not A Single Doubt, First Lady was only fair when resuming at Kembla Grange although she does generally need the run fresh and had excuses against a leader-biased track last Wednesday at Canterbury.

All four career wins for First Lady have come on the country circuit and three of those have been at a mile which she now rises too whilst she's also no stranger to a quick turnaround and is able to handle any surface.

First Lady strips a lot fitter now with a few runs under her belt and was able to cash in last time she was in a similar race with a comfortable win at Canberra last year on a Heavy 8 which was over this trip.


Wagga Each-Way Bet - Race 8 No. 7 Promesa

There was clearly an opinion of this gelding in 2019 where he had an average starting price of $2.55 from five attempts over two campaigns.

He's prepared by the astute Canberra stable of Joseph Ible who's trained five winners at Wagga over the last 12 months at a strike rate of 33.3% and with two trials leading in for Promesa who's going straight to 1200m, it's a fair indication that he's forward enough fresh.

The blinkers now come off the five-year-old now who went to the line under a hold in his most recent public hit-out on July 31 when in the worst part of the track against a useful trio that finished ahead of him.

Promesa has let down the punters at prohibitively short odds four times now but now at an each-way price in a field that lacks depth, it could be the time to catch him.
