Leading trainer Chris Waller will have his eyes firmly on the two feature prizes at Civic Stakes Day at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday, when fans can also enjoy all the LIVE and FREE action from a nine-race card at Caulfield.
Waller has five runners entered in both the Civic Stakes (1350m) and the W.J. McKell Cup (2000m), giving him a very strong hand in both of Saturday’s Listed features at Rosehill.
In the W.J. McKell Cup, Waller has two of the top fancies in Wu Gok, who is targeting his third win in a row, and Carzoff. However, they’ll face stiff opposition from the Kris Lees stable, which is also fielding five runners, headed by Attention Run and Sixties Groove, while the sole Victorian-based runner Sully also shapes as a big threat.
Godolphin’s Home of The Brave looms as Waller’s biggest obstacle in the Civic Stakes, but in what shapes as a very even race Dealmaker and Toryjoy appear the master trainer’s leading contenders.
Seven’s broadcast this Saturday will be led by Nigel Carmody, Henry Dwyer and Corey Brown.
At Caulfield, Winter Race Day will see promising Henry Dwyer-trained filly Ms Catherine bid to bounce back from her first defeat (race six, three-year-old handicap, 1000m), Alfa Oro seek four wins in a row (race seven, 1100m) while Harbour Views continues his tilt at a 2020 Cox Plate run (race eight, 2000m).
Racing fans can also keep across the action with @7horseracing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
