Leg Work hasn’t been seen at the races since November, but I think he can break his maiden first-up at Wagga this afternoon. Trainer Danny Williams clearly has an opinion of the gelding and he was unlucky not to win during his debut prep, running second at Gundagai and racing in the city, albeit a failed tilt. He probably won’t be offered a better opportunity than this.
That’s Funny Az has returned to racing in excellent condition this time and will be tough to beat in the third at Pinjarra. The Snippetson gelding was a little out of his depth in the Magic Millions race here when resuming but has since broken his maiden and won in Class 1 company. This is probably a little tougher again, but he harbours further improvement and William Pike retains the ride.
It is fair to say that Logan River hasn’t been close to his best this time in, but this is by far the easiest race for which he has contested, and sharp improvement wouldn’t be surprising. The Snitzel gelding was a strong and consistent performer in better races than this last time in and he should be at peak fitness for today’s assignment.
Interstate will take good improvement into his second-up assignment at Pinjarra today and will take beating. The War Chant gelding showed glimpses of ability during his debut prep but appears to have returned a better horse this time and only just missed here when resuming. Brad Parnham has options with the horse from the rails draw.
