Devil’s Luck has produced a few competitive performances this time and simply will not be offered a better opportunity to break his maiden than he finds at Wyong this afternoon. The All Too Hard gelding savaged the line to finish in the minors at his first two starts this time and he has been freshened-up since a fair effort for fifth at Kembla Grange in October. His wide barrier isn’t a concern as he’ll settle off the pace and he should prove hard to hold out.
Kiwi import The Seven Falls has stamped himself as a horse to follow since arriving in Bjorn Baker’s care and he looks beautifully placed to record his first Australian win at Wyong this afternoon. The Niagara gelding resumed for a close-up second over a mile at Orange in October and has continued to strip fitter at his two most-recent starts. The step up to 2100m looks ideal and he’s drawn perfectly in barrier 4.
Saving recorded an impressive win on debut at Newcastle and can continue his rise through the grades at Wyong this afternoon. The son of Savabeel showed fair ability at the trials prior to his first race and easily put away a decent field over 1400m. Breeding suggests that he’ll only improve at a mile and he is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from his first experience at the races. He’s drawn beautifully and looks the horse to beat.
Four-year-old Mount Horeb has a good second-up record and has the ability to fight out the finish of the last at Kyneton today. The son of Moshe raced greenly first-up, but ultimately hit the line well to finish third at this track and distance, and there’s not doubt that he’ll take wholesale improvement into this race. He has the benefit of a 3kg claim this afternoon and is up to the quality of this race.
