Rockin' Millie @ 3.20

Race 5 Pinjarra

Race 4 Mackay

I Say Boom @ 4.40

Millie to salute at Wyong

The sixth race on the Wyong card is a 1200m Benchmark 64 handicap, with Fuld’s Doubt expected to have her supporters having won twice from four starts this prep.

Both of the fillies’ victories have come at Scone including by one-and-a-half-lengths in a Class 1 handicap over 1100m on her penultimate start.

The three-year-old won on a good 4 track that day, but the softer going expected here is no issue having won on a soft 7 in maiden company first up.

The drop in grade is a positive for Reece Jones’ mount, having never figured when down the field in an 1100m Listed contest at Scone last month.

However, apprentice Braith Nock’s mount ROCKIN’ MILLIE is preferred here, having also won two of her four starts this time around.

The fillies' first win saw her triumph in a 1000m maiden held on a soft 7 track at Gosford when racing first up this prep.

A two-length fourth when racing at this Benchmark 64 level followed at Hawkesbury prior to losing out narrowly when runner-up over 1100m at Gosford.

The 3.20 selection appeared to appreciate the step up to this distance when overcoming a slow start to salute by one-and-a-half-lengths in a Benchmark 64 handicap at Newcastle on 9th May.

Adam Duggan’s filly has a good barrier in five here and she is selected to complete a double.

Kings to rule at Pinjarra

The fifth race of the day at Pinjarra is a competitive looking 1200m Class 1 handicap set to take place on a soft 7 surface.

The powerful Grant & Alana Williams team are represented by Sensessional, the mount of William Pike.

The three-year-old ended his last prep with a fifth in a 1600m Class 3 handicap in early March and he is expected to have his supporters on his return from a break.

The gelding was beaten three-and-a-half-lengths in that 1600m contest, having broken his maiden over this distance at Ascot two starts earlier.

The youngster trialled for this contest with a sixth at Lark Hill on 20th May, however he looks opposable on his return to action.

Daniel Morton sends out KINGS SALUTE in this contest, with the gelding having broken his maiden over 1300m here on his penultimate outing.

The selection had previously placed third when beaten just under three-and-a-half-lengths having raced wide throughout in a track and trip maiden on a good 4 track.

While unproven on a soft 7 track, the 2.40 pick demonstrated he handles soft conditions when third on a soft 5 at Belmont Park on debut, while he has also won a trial on a soft 6.

The drop back in distance should pose no issues here, with the son of King’s Troop having been beaten less than two lengths when fourth over 1400m at Belmont Park last month.

Chris Parnham’s mount has a good barrier next to the rail and he is taken to record the second win of his career.

Boom to enjoy Mackay again

The fourth race of the day at Mackay is a 1560m Class 3 set weights contest scheduled to take place on a good 4 surface.

I SAY BOOM takes the eye here, having won three times this season, including twice at this circuit.

Both of those track wins came over this distance, including by over two-and-a-half-lengths when successful in a Class 3 handicap on 27th May.

The 4.40 selection had disappointed when jumping at odds of $1.60 prior to finishing last of five in a 1400m Benchmark 65 handicap at Charters Towers prior to that.

Georgina Cartwright, on board here last time, is again set to ride and the pair look capable of completing a treble at this track.
