Canberra Set for Wagga Spoils

The Wagga carnival kick off tomorrow (Thursday) with Canberra stables positioned to win plenty of prizemoney.

Race 1

The powerful Matt Dale yard can get off to a winning start with LANSALA (1) resuming off two promising placings. Nick Heywood rides from the perfect gate and he strikes at 35% with the stable.


The Barbara Joseph-Paul Jones trained HAVELAKA (5) also presents as a leading hope, but is cruelled by a wide gate. The booking of Matt Cahill suggests she’s pleasing.

The stablemate I’M A JEWEL (10) resumes and can lead from the low draw. She’s definitely worth considering at juicy odds.

Race 2

Just three Canberra horses present and get wide draws. Norm Gardner has always had an opinion of METRALLA (14) and in-demand jockey Matt Cahill sticks. At the big odds she’s worth a throw into the multiples at least.

Joseph-Jones’ REIGN OVER ME (14) will be very competitive and is value at the current $18.00.

Race 3

Matt Dale has three acceptors all with tricky draws. This is a tough affair but his resumer ALL OVER CASANOVER (3) has had good early support with Josh Parr booked. ZAMAKING (7) rates a genuine hope but draws the outside.

Race 4

Joseph-Jones flies the Canberra flag in the Inglis Bonus for two year olds. The favourite will be tough to beat but the promising MOOKARENNA (3) is right in it and Cahill sticking is a plus. Stablemate SAMARA’S CHOICE (8) debuts and hit the line and can prove better than the trial suggests.

Race 5

Matt Dale’s FUN TICKETS (3) draws low with the 3kg claim and is well-suited back in trip. Joseph-Jones’ CROIX DE VIE (9) has won three ‘Federals’ at Canberra and was dominant again the latest. He’s raced well here and gets the claim.

Race 6

The Keith Dryden-Scott Collings partnership has BALANSA (3) engaged and she presents as one of the better bets on the program up from the impressive Canberra win at the mile. She draws low and Cahill sticks. Paul Facoory’s SWINDLERS LIST (14) is finding it hard to win but is worth an include in multiples

Race 7

Two Canberra runners line-up in the Town Plate but the market suggests they will struggle. Matt Dale’s HERMOSA BEACH (5) is always worth a look but its been a long time between drinks for her.

Race 8

Nick Olive has MAID OF ORE (8) engaged who won on debut and followed that with a near miss both at Canberra. She’s sure to play a major role.
