This 4YO mare trained by Tim Donnelly has 3 wins from 5 starts. After starting this campaign with 2 wins she blotted her copybook when she went too hard early and finished 7th over 1065 at Wagga on 21 November, then she got back in the winner’s circle with a 4.5 length win over 900m at Albury on 10 December. Should be hard to beat.
This 8YO hasn’t won for a while but is rarely too far away from the winner. He pulled hard and was wide near the 800m when 4th in the Ted Ryder Prelude over 1675m at Wagga on 5 December, then got back to last before making some ground for 2.4 lengths 3rd in the Fred Cooper Cup over 1600m at Goulburn on 16 December. He is on a seven day back-up and has won 3 times at this track. Worth an each-way bet.
Lumber Dream (Wagga Race 2 No. 4)
This 5YO gelding is the early favourite in this BM 66 Handicap over 2000m. He started from the outside barrier and ran last in a Highway Class 3 handicap over 1500m at Rosehill on 3 December, then tried hard and grabbed 3rd over 1600m at Canberra on 11 December. Other runners offer better value.
