TAREE Wingham Race Club has again received great nominations from city, provincial and country trainers for its seven-race TAB meeting at Taree on Tuesday.
A feature race, the Manning In Motion Raceday Benchmark 60 Handicap over 1267m, has attracted runners from Hawkesbury, Muswellbrook, Broadmeadow, Scone, Taree and Port Macquarie, many of them placed or recent winners in what should be a very competitive event.
Four-year-old gelding Showmaster is a last start winner at Bathurst for Hawkesbury trainer Garry Frazer, that being its first start back from a spell over 1200m on December 19.
Broadmeadow trainer Grant Marshall has had plenty of success with Slots and Miss Tripod at this track and he has a handy one in four-year-old mare Gods Gift To Women which has run third at Port when resuming and then was only beaten a half-length over 1200m at Gosford on December 31.
Port five-year-old gelding Friendsinlowplaces resumed from a spell with a solid win over 1100m on its home track on December 15 and wasn’t disgraced when 2.6 lengths back in fifth behind Youwaitandsee over 1206m at the same track on January 8.
Placed in the same race was five-year-old gelding Delagos, trained at Port by Neil Godbolt, it being capable on its day.
Taree seven-year-old mare Ruling Class had strung four thirds together at its past four starts at Port, Scone and Taree before a 3.4 lengths seventh to Youwaitandsee and has placed five times at Taree.
Broadmeadow trainer Paul Perry had a frustrating run with his gallopers at Taree’s five previous meetings, but grabbed the feature Wingham Beef Exports Cup over 1400m at the club’s last meeting with six-year-old gelding Pesaro.
He has a live chance in four-year-old gelding Salerton which was beaten less than two lengths by Dream Habit over 1100m at Scone and should be suited here.
Another exciting race will be the Winning Post Function Centre Benchmark 55 Handicap over 2018m where three last start winners in Just Atina, trained at Coffs Harbour by Brett Dodson, Dubai Dusk, trained at Broadmeadow by Mick Dwyer and Kempsey’s Brasileiro Macho, from the in-form stable of Julie Lynch, are engaged.
Just Atina and Dubai Dusk won races around the distance at Port whereas Brasileiro scored at Kempsey after being a close second in the Woop Woop Cup at Wauchope on Boxing Day.
The track should be in perfect order despite a few showers, it gaining widespread acceptance from visiting trainers who scooped all seven races at Taree’s last meeting.
