Glock hasn’t run a bad race since resuming, has a fitness edge over several of his key rivals and is ready to win at Wyong this afternoon. The Shooting To Win gelding filled the minors at Gosford when fresh, unlucky not to break his maiden when flying home to finish second in a photo here before another commendable effort for fourth at Warwick Farm last time out. The return to a provincial track is beneficial and he’ll take beating.
There isn’t a lot of exposed form leading into this race but on breeding alone, this will probably be a great contest. I thought that the debut effort of Burdekin was reasonably eye-catching, and I’ll be happy to have something on this afternoon. The Written Tycoon colt stepped out at Warwick Farm a couple of weeks ago and ran home well to finish fourth. There’s no doubt that he’ll enjoy good improvement for that experience, and he is drawn to receive a lovely run today from barrier 2.
Japanese-bred filly Epiline has stripped fitter for three career starts so far and is ready to salute at Wyong this afternoon, at a lovely price ($7.50 at publish). The three-year-old daughter of Epiphaneia filled the minors at each of her first two career starts but was pulled out of the contest at Canterbury last time out. She’s drawn and weighted well today, and I am happy to have something on each-way.
Significance is rock-hard fit and is primed to record another win at Wyong this afternoon. The John O’Shea-trained colt mustered a smart turn of foot to salute here two starts back but failed to fire at Warwick Farm last time out. He’s another horse that will relish a drop back to provincial level, he’s drawn well, and I like the booking of senior jockey Jeff Penza to ride.
