Hat-trick on the cards for Wayanka
LIGHTLY raced three-year-old
WAYANKA can bring up a winning hat-trick tomorrow in Race 9 over 1400m at Randwick.
The Encosta De Lago gelding has been impressive in winning his last two starts at Canterbury over 1200m and 1250m and has progressed again for the Waller stable to handle step up in class.
She has been hitting the line hard for narrow wins and will relish the extra distances of tomorrow’s assignment.
His work on the course proper (markers out 14m) with Group 2 winner Mackintosh was strong over 1000m in 1:12.30, the last 600m in 40 and final 200m in 12.5 without pressure. The Waller stablemates SAM
BRO and MADAME MOUSTACHE are both live chances in the opening race at Randwick tomorrow.
Sambro, a Fastnet Rock youngster, has always displayed ability in trackwork and is now starting to fulfil his promise on the track.
Having fourth start, he raced outside the lead to break his maiden at Warwick Farm and the most pleasing part was he was drawing away from the opposition.
Madame Moustache caught the eye first-up over 1100m when missing start and coming from last on turn for a closing 2.4 lens sixth to Viridine.
She is an improving filly and gives every indication tomorrow’s 1400m will suit.
She produced a best of the morning gallop on Tuesday running 800m in 53.20 with final 200m in 12.08. It was a strong workout all around and looked well coming off the track. IN TIMES OF WAR deserves a change of luck in Race 6 tomorrow after finishing three photo seconds since resuming from a 26 week spell.
Last start, the Gerry Harvey owned Street Cry three-year-old filly ran second to Bonny O’Reilly and that horse franked the form by winning again last Saturday.
One of a mammoth 21 horses engaged at the meeting under the Waller umbrella, In Times
Of War’s trackwork is always top classwhen required and she continues to look great.
RELIGIFY won very well first-up at the Gold Coast in Listed Prime Minister’s Cup (1400m) and is a big chance of repeating in the Lord Mayor’s Cup at Eagle Farm tomorrow with Hugh Bowman sticking.
The Choisir six-year-old was brought back to Rosehill by Waller and continues do well at home recording the best of the morning gallop on Tuesday.
Galloping the course proper ( markers out 14m) he covered 1000m in 1:07.50, last 600m 37.70 and final 200m 12.20.
It was winning work from a tough campaigner.
