Australian Racing: Jamrock ready to roll at Wyong

Wet tracks are the order of the day with soft ground expected at all four meetings due to take place on Thursday.

Race 9 Moe

The Ballet Dancer @ 4.60

Race 5 Northam

Galarian @ 5.50

Race 5 Wyong

Jamrock @ 5.00

Dancer has the right moves at Moe

Moe in Victoria stages the most valuable meeting of the day, with a nine-race card and a soft 6 surface expected.

The concluding race on the card is an interesting 1600m Benchmark 64 event and Hearts And Minds is expected to have his supporters for the Patrick Payne stable.

The gelding finished down the field in a couple of barrier trials prior to making his return from a spell when beaten half-a-length into second over 1400m at Ballarat last month.

That effort came on the soft 6 going expected here, however it’s notable that he could finish only mid-division over 1518m when tackling a similar Benchmark 64 event at Geelong subsequently.

Lachlan Overall’s mount will need to put that Geelong effort behind him and with that in mind THE BALLET DANCER is preferred here.

Trained by Ben & JD Hayes the filly had delivered some solid efforts in defeat this spell prior to winning last time out. Those included a three length second in a 2025m Benchmark 64 contest on a good 4 track at Cranbourne in April.

The filly went on to deliver a length victory dropped back to 1600m when scoring by a length at Pakenham just under a month ago.

Freshened since that success promising apprentice Luke Campbell is a positive jockey booking and he can steer the four-year-old to victory.

Galarian going for Northam glory

Race five at Northam is a 2220m Benchmark 50+ handicap event.

The consistent Filthy Habits has won twice already this time around and is expected to prove popular with William Pike an eye-catching jockey booking for the Peter Fernie stable.

Notably all seven of the gelding's starts this spell have come at Kalgoorlie, including when runner-up over 1760m on a good 3 track on May 28th.

The only disappointing effort this spell came when encountering a soft 5 surface over 1602m there in April.

With that in mind it can prove profitable to look elsewhere for the winner, with confirmed wet-track performer GALARIAN taken to overcome a wide alley to deliver a victory.

The selection won by half-a-length over 2200m at Northam on a good 4 track on his penultimate start and performed well when third in a 16-runner contest over 2100m at Belmont Park subsequently.

That effort came on a soft 5 track, while he wasn’t beaten far when fourth over 1720m on a soft 7 surface at Narrogin four starts back.

The trip and ground are no issue to Joseph Azzopardi’s mount and he looks capable of saluting here.

Jamrock to score for Neasham

JAMROCK takes the eye in the fifth race at Wyong, with the three-year-old heading into the 1600m maiden having placed on all four previous starts.

The pick was withdrawn having been fractious in the gates at Canberra last month and returns here having been ordered to retrial by the stewards.

Prior to that he had delivered a third-place finish in a 1400m maiden on a soft 6 track at Mudgee when racing first up.

The gelding has forecast underfoot conditions to suit and, with the distance no issue and promising apprentice Jett Stanley up, he looks capable of recording his first victory.
