Wyong Best Bets & Predictions For Thursday, October 10

Provincial NSW racing heads to Wyong this Thursday where the track is currently rated at a Good 4 and the rail shifts out 2m from the true position on September 24.

A tight turning track where on-speed is no disadvantage, however back-markers can still come into play late if the tempo allows.

Race 5 No. 2 Akari

Daughter of Snitzel from the Brad Widdup stable who placed twice behind the dual group winner Libertini in her first campaign before returning here on September 24.

Was runner-up and strong through the line behind the impressive Regimental Band who carried similar form from the autumn and is currently an even money favorite in a benchmark 70 at Kensington today.

Has drawn sticky again which is the obvious query but covered extra ground in that first-up attempt and had been scratched a few times since an early September trial so should strip fitter.

Up in the weights due to a strange handicap condition for this maiden but the extra 100m will suit, she stays against her own sex and star hoop Nash Rawiller takes the ride.

Race 3 No. 9 La Grisa

It was hard to miss the debut run of this striking grey mare over 1400m at Newcastle on September 21.

By Reliable Man and out of Miss Scarlatti, a stakes winning mare from a very strong New Zealand family, she looked more adept at the races with a few gear changes from the trials and showed a nice turn of foot late to nab third.

Was held up rounding the turn and early into the straight, where she looked as though she'd get over more ground and the step up to a mile for this assignment is a plus.

Maybe a start short from really flattening out, but expect natural improvement from that initial run and she does have less convictions than her opposition who have all had chances.

Verdict

Akari has the right form on the board to be taking out Race 5 and is clearly the one to beat on an otherwise tough meeting.

La Grisa has upside and is a fair price in the third with that debut run under her belt.
