Wolf Bear is seeking a third-consecutive win when he steps out at Wentworth Park tonight and looks well placed to get it. The son of Barcia Bale has been airborne all-round and hasn’t finished worse than second in his six most-recent starts. With even luck from the central box, he’ll take a power of beating again.
No Rules failed to fire in a tougher race last time out, but this step back in class looks exactly what he needs to return to winning form. The one-year-old failed to ping the boxes last time and was subsequently unable to get into the race, but he should be every chance tonight, and in weaker company.
Irinka Mason faces a rise in class at Wentworth Park tonight, but he was an impressive last-start winner and looks up to the task at a nice price ($7 at publish). The son of Irinka Luca has found a purple patch of form recently and was a dominant winner over 350m at Goulburn last time out. He’s rock-hard fit and with even luck from the central box, can fight out the finish.
