Wagga Tips - July 5
Get the four best bets for Monday racing at Wagga.
Race 1 11:20pm AEST – No. 2 Erwin
The Joseph/Jones-trained three-year-old had a solid first campaign that included two placings from three starts. He finished second on debut at Moruya before running fifth at Wagga, where he was only 2.8 lengths from the winner. He followed it up with a placing at Sapphire Coast and that form bodes well for this contest.
Drawing barrier 13 is a negative, but there has been solid betting support and it won’t take him long to win a race. This field is there for the taking and we would be surprised if he didn’t figure in the finish.
Race 3 12:30pm AEST – No. 1 Kitzbuhel
Searching for three consecutive wins is Kitzbuhel, which scored both wins at Wagga. The four-year-old son of Medaglia D’oro won by a length over 2000m two back before scoring more comfortably by 1.5 lengths last time out. Both wins were top-notch and rising to 2500m doesn’t appear to have any negative repercussions. He’s bred to handle the distance and his turn-of-foot will make him tough to stop.
Carrying 64kg is the only possible danger, but the runner on the second line of betting owns two wins from 20 starts, so there is a sizable class disparity. We’re confident the favourite can get the job done and put up many lengths on this field.
Race 5 1:40pm AEST – No. 1 Mr Brown Fox
Value is with Mr Brown Fox, which scored a quality win at Echuca and that form stacks up brilliantly at Wagga. The six-year-old son of Myboycharlie owns six wins from 31 starts and that’s a solid record for this level of racing. He stays in the same grade as the one he put a half-length last start and this field isn’t as strong.
Getting a 4kg claimer in the saddle is ideal and although he has yet to fire in four attempts at Wagga, his confidence is back and he loves the distance. Dropping to 59kg makes him awfully tough to beat and punters get generous odds to enjoy. He will run better than his odds suggest.
Race 9 4:05pm AEST – No. 2 Yeldarb
Yeldarb turned his form around when scoring by 1.8 lengths at Wangaratta last start and we’re expecting that form to continue. The six-year-old owns six wins and nine placings from 34 starts, so he’s rarely too far away from the action. He is a wet track specialist with four wins and two second placings from nine starts on the heavy, so conditions will be ideal on Monday.
Getting 3kg off his back, taking him to 58kg, is ideal. He carried a huge weight last start and he’s not meeting a much harder field. Barrier three bodes well and we would be surprised if the favourite wasn’t fighting out the finish. We expect his odds to firm closer to race time.
