The Wayne Wilson 2021 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Eight runners have accepted for the $150,000 Wayne Wilson.   Chris Waller has a strong hand with three runners while James Cummings and the Godolphin team have two.  The early favourite in the betting is Mister Sea Wolf.  He finished fifth behind the emerging super star Zaaki on the Gold Coast last start and should get every chance from barrier three for James McDonald.  Next in the betting is Kementari.  He is one of two Group 1 winners in the race and is suited by weight for age conditions.

The lightly raced Delphi is first up in Australia.  He has won four of his five starts in Ireland and has trialed up well enough at the Sunshine Coast in recent times to suggest he can run well here.  Kings Will Dream has been a terrific money spinner for connections.  He is having his final start and it won’t surprise to see improve significantly second up and feature in the finish.  Profit has returned in good order but may need some luck from barrier one given he likes to settle back in his races.  So You Win trys hard however there are some questions marks with him dropping back to the mile where he has just one placing from five attempts.  Hugh Bowman sticks with Ranier while Military Zone is the outsider of the field at $20-1.

The Wayne Wilson Runner by Runner

1. Kementari

Godolphin runner who is never far away in any race he runs in.  He was beaten 2.6 lengths in the Kingsford-Smith last start, prior was beaten 1.4 lengths away in the All Aged Stakes.  Drops back to listed level here and is well suited at weight for age.

2. Mister Sea Wolf

Rising nine year old who comes back 200m in distance for this.  He has won five of his twenty starts at the mile and should be rock hard fit now.  One of the leading chances.

3. Kings Will Dream

Terrific horse having his last ever start.  He never got warm first up and rises sharply in distance from 1200m to 1600m here second up.  This trip will be much more to his liking as will the extra fitness.

4. Ranier

Ranier ran well first up at Randwick, then didn’t come on here in the BRC Sprint last time out.  May be able to settle closer in the run but needs to improve on recent showings.

5. Delphi

Import who is first up in Australia.  He has had five starts in Ireland winning the last four of them and looks a very promising galloper.  He will be better over more ground however has a 1600m win to his name and showed some speed in a recent trial.

6. So You Win

Another one of the Waller horses who comes back in distance for this.  He hit the line solidly to finish second last start – his fourth placing from as many starts this prep.  Should be there abouts again.

7. Military Zone

Third up here with leading hoop Tommy Berry in the saddle.  He has a win and a placing from his two previous attempts at this track but I’m not sure he is going great at the moment.

8. Profit

This four year old gelding has an excellent record at this track.  He won a class 6 by .2 of a length here first up and will only improve into this.  However, losing the services of James McDonald is a negative.
