Race-by-race guide and tips for Wagga on Monday

Track Good 4, and Rail True, so should play fairly even.

Race 1 CL3 HCP (1600m):

Intriguing battle of tactics to start. Canberra mare 3. Away She Goes looks to have scope and improvement. From an emerging stable, has found the line nicely last two and ready for the extra trip. Well in at the weights.

Dangers: Local mare 4. Bravado Lass has been close-up in his last two in BM 58 grade and peaks now down in weight; while Albury-trained 1. Supplyzing is capable from the good draw, but mixes form and is conceding plenty of weight to the others. Another Albury runner 2. Aadesia is also down in weight after a strong CL1 win this track, but the company is tougher here.

How to play it: Away She Goes each-way and box trifecta 1-3-4.

Race 2 MAIDEN HCP (1000m):

Wide affair this, with several hopes resuming. Scratched from Moruya on Sunday, this looks ideal for 3YO Canberra filly 11. Fabulous Fran. Only just nailed late in a decent maiden at home in second career run, and should be able to stalk the speed and pounce late.

Dangers: Local 3YO 6. The Chaplain showed some ability in a brief winter campaign and has trialled nicely in preparation for first-up run; while include fellow local trial winners 4. Jungle Book and 5. Supalux, as well as recent Canberra trial winner 1. Action Shale in all exotics.

How to play it: Fabulous Fran to win and box first four 1-2-4-5-6-11.

Race 3: MAIDEN PLATE (1400m):

Really keen on Canberra-trained 5. Luga Lad who can finally crack his maiden at 17th career start. Placed eight times so far often steaming home from well back so the long straight here is an advantage. Suited at set weights and drawn to stay out of traffic and sweep home.

Dangers: Canberra rival and improving filly 14. Stratum's Rose is another who will drift back from a wide gate and launch late. Has been hitting the line nicely and should also be suited this track; while 3YO border-hopper 13. Starskin will improve stepping up in trip at third career run. The rest are just battling.

How to play it: Luga Lad to win.

Race 4 WAGGA STAYERS SERIES HEAT BM 66 (2000m):

Local 5. Run Hoff Run stuck on nicely last start in a BM 58 over 1800m after dropping right back from two miles. Back out to 2000m and down in weight, he will go very close.

Dangers: Kembla visitor 4. Griddlebone is ready for another crack at this level after winning that BM 58 last start, and is drawn to get a lovely run behind the speed. Albury warrior 2. Little Red Devil has put two wins together, and draws nicely with a 2kg claim, but this is tougher; while 6. Lucky Elixir has been fair in three runs back, and desperately needs the 2000m now. Will be finishing hard.

How to play it: Run Hoff Run to win and box trifecta 2-4-5-6.

Race 5 BM 58 HCP (1400m):

Another tough and wide open affair. If Kembla-trained 7. Tiomo gets any luck first-up from a wide gate, he'll be hard to hold out. Broke his maiden in dynamic fashion nine weeks ago coming from well back at Moruya, and previous form in stronger maidens was solid. Comes to hand quickly, and this looks the right trip off a nine week freshen.

Dangers: Lightly-raced Victorian 4YO 3. Ocean Hero put the writing on the wall two back at Wodonga before charging home to win his maiden at Albury. Ready for the extra trip now. Canberra-trained 1. Reliant has a stack of weight, but is consistent enough around this grade and should find a good position just off the speed with leading rider aboard.

How to play it: Tiomo each-way and box exacta 1-3-7.

Race 6 TED RYDER CUP (1600m)

Feature race, and happy to go around the Ted Ryder Prelude form, with Wellington-trained 5. Steamin' who was very good from well back in the Mudgee Cup, and is also in well at the weights in what is a drop in grade. Was solid to the line two runs back at Canterbury.

Dangers: Local 4. Noble Descent has won two from three this prep, both times powering home from midfield, and while this has more depth, at the weights he looks hard to beat over the perfect trip. Another local in 6. Danetrille got home nicely in the Prelude and also drops in weight and gets a better draw; while Prelude winner 2. Class Clown is something of a specialist over the mile, but has a tougher gate to overcome this time. Include 1. Spunlago in exotics, was good from the back in the Wodonga Cup and has taken on good company right through current prep.

How to play it: Steamin' each-way and box first four 1-2-4-5-6.

Race 7 CL2 HCP (1200m):

From top Canberra stable, 3YO filly 6. Miss Crompton won her maiden this track at second career start and can go right on with it here down in weight and drawn to park right behind the speed.

Dangers: Last-start Sapphire Coast winner 1. Trumbo is a clear threat from the good draw after being scratched from Moruya on Sunday. Albury mare 5. La Dalliance has been strong through the line in her last couple but has an awkward gate to overcome; while Tumut-trained 2. Find My Tail who won two starts back, and local 4. Rock 'N' Roller should both be around the finish.

How to play it: Miss Crompton to win and quinella 1 and 6.

Race 8 BM 74 HCP (1200m):

Gulgong-trained 4. Sugar Dance won under a big weight two starts back at Orange before finding the line nicely in a strong Mudgee Sprint on Cup day behind the smart Our Dasha. Has plenty of quality, just the widest barrier to overcome.

Dangers: Albury mare 5. Bennelong Dancer is the clear threat powering home to win an Open Hcp at Albury two starts back before taking on tougher company in a Rosehill Highway.

How to play it: Back both Sugar Dance and Bennelong Dancer to win.
