**Obviously a lot depends on the rain so will try to update**

I’m not a wet track punter so I’ll be lucky to have 1-2 bets all day in Sydney, better races in Melbourne to look at and there is always next week.



As much as it’s caught the attention of everyone i’m not that keen on either of these races.

Only betting if the track gets to a SOFT surface and if it does I’ll be on VEGA MAGIC from gate 7, the query is a very wet track. He has the ability to sit on speed or directly on the back of the speed and his turn off foot off a decent tempo is what makes him special. Every chance to sit outside REDZEL here which would be perfect. Blinkers go back on and he will take a stack of catching if it’s not too wet.

Away from him you could back nearly any runner. I’ll back him if it’s a SOFT 6 or better, if it’s worse I’m likely to stay out.

On a dry track i’d be very confident it was a two horse race with CARE TO THINK and VICTOREM simply having a better turn of foot than the others. On a wet track you have to say it brings a lot of others into it.

With our bloke CARE TO THINK scratched it does take a bit away from the race and a bit of interest also.

VICTOREM is the other horse who still has huge upside. He has had the perfect lead in to this with multiple trials and looks ready to rumble. He won the Country Championships final and then probably should have won the G3 Hawksbury Guineas. Has won 5 of 7 and looks to be in for his best prep yet. Has ticked the heavy track box also.

If the rain does hit THE MONSTAR goes as fast in the wet as he does on top of the ground. He will lead and try to run them into the ground. DON’T GIVE A DAMN is a 1400-1600m horse and the wet track might make this a very tough 1200m so might play into his hands. I feel if it was 1100m AWESOME PLUCK would be a live chance and may be the 2nd best wet tracker in the field! Just the last 100m off the break is a little issue.

*If I’m having a bet VICTOREM is the only horse I could be having something on. Hopefully we don’t get to a heavy surface.
