Was set to use The Wasp in R3 as first leg of a multi when around the $3 – that unfortunately went off first thing this morning – so we are left with the single play. No knock on those who chose to still take the double for something – especially with Bet365 in case the Wasp gets back out late.
R8 #2 Sojournalist – The rider and gate are small queries against and stop me from having maximum bet on this runner. He started the preparation in good order – but very big in condition. His runs have all been very good and he now peaks in fitness and drops back in grade. Looked home at Gosford in the worst part of the track before grabbed late. Start before he went down fighting behind Seaglass. Seaglass would be $1.40 in this field. If he can get on speed early – he will take all sorts of beating. Expecting the Denham runner to be well backed with G Ryan aboard and good natural speed – so price may hold up or even ease late.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4.5 Units Sojournalist @ $3.20 with Bet365 or Best Tote/SP
