Eurosay has returned to racing in competitive form this time and is ready to peak third-up at Wagga this afternoon. The son of Eurozone worked to the line well to finish fourth over 1100m at Gundagai first-up before a decent on-pace performance for third at Moruya last time out. The slight drop in trip this afternoon looks ideal and with natural improvement, he can take up the running and will give them something to chase.
Newtown Bluebag is stepping back from city company into Race 5 at Wagga this afternoon and should be fighting out the finish. The Lope De Vega gelding was a strong and consistent performer through autumn this year and won a Highway race over a mile at Randwick, while also placing in a couple of other city-grade races and running a credible sixth at Listed level. He is rock-hard fit ahead of his fourth-up assignment this afternoon and won’t be offered a better opportunity to return to winning form.
O’Lordy will return from a freshen up in the last at Wagga today and will be extremely difficult to beat. The O’Lonhro mare was an impressive winner of a Highway Handicap over 1200m at Rosehill when last first-up before embarking on a long and busy campaign which continued to herald decent results. She is yet to finish worse than second in her first-up runs and has typically lined up in tougher company than she finds today.
Everymile A Memory turned in a lacklustre performance last time out, but he had been racing in excellent form prior and I am happy to give her another chance in the last at Belmont today. The Choisir mare has only made five appearances at the races since debuting in January but has already posted two wins and a close-up second and was a dominant winner over a mile two runs back. She looks to have a class edge over most of this field and has the notable advantage of William Pike in the saddle.
