Wentworth Park tips and best bets

Well, it’s that time of year again. The country and provincial dogs have had their fun and now it’s time for the city slickers to have their crack at qualifying for the , where one lucky set of will take home the $1 million first-place purse. There are five qualifiers on tonight and five more quality races at , so good luck and good punting.

Race 1: NSW GBOTA Welcome 5th Grade 520m

To start the program we have a fantastic 5th Grade race where a number of these starters were unlucky and finished second in the regional qualifying series for the MDC. was second in his heat and final at Nowra, beaten by the same dog, and has been good without winning. Box 6 and a 2/23 win rate here are the concerns. Zipping Maserati was also second, but in the Maitland series, and was flying in his lead up and heat. He is a definite threat to ping and lead all the way. ’s other runner, Zipping Lopez, was second in the Gosford series and will be well drawn out here. Lime Rock Park won the Goulburn qualifying and so must be given a good chance as she possesses good pace and is another that could easily lead this. Kiwi Fantasy is always a hope in these sorts of races.

Race 2: Ladbroke It! 5th Grade 520m

Tap Out Diesel was very good when outpacing Doonan early and then holding him off two starts back, and while he may need to improve his PB, the track is starting to dry out after the big wet. He can break 30secs tonight from a suitable draw. Super Aussie is the dog to beat if he can mend his starting woes. He is a different dog when he pings but has dwelt at his last two and can’t afford any mistakes off this draw. Mac Ibrox flew to win a MDC heat at Gosford and was not disgraced in the final. If he comes out running, he will lead them a merry dance, but the breed has a habit of being moderately away and that might make it tough. Lagoon Dark Eyes has been flying on the provincial circuits, and while this is harder, he is a chance with room early and a new kennel that has a knack of producing them here.

Race 3: Happy 30th Ayden 4th/5th Grade 520m

Opal Model finally draws her box. She loves to get to the right out of the boxes and box 8 will afford her that luxury without any interference as the 7 loves to dive to the fence also. She is a reliable beginner who can lead this for a long way. Appetizing for Scott Morgan has won two in a row here, so no knocks on her. Will need to show her early toe but is a definite threat. Zipping Pearson is another with toe but has just struggled a bit to finish things off here. is looking for longer but has been freshened up for this and will be powering home when it is all over – as will Four Five, who needs to find the fence early and power home so will need some luck.

Race 4: Million Dollar Chase City Qualifier 1 Non Graded 520m

The first of the qualifiers features a handy line-up. Do It is a champion who just hasn’t shown his best around here, but you can never discount him. Equalizer flew around here in 29.85 in the Golden Easter Egg series (wet track) and was a touch unlucky in the semi-final. Probably the best dog in this race at the present time. is another strong Victorian who is very good, but so is this field. Chase Me Honey is the big local hope and scorched around Bathurst two runs back, and a repeat would put her in this. Louis Rumble won his heat and semi of the Egg with ease and then led the final before spearing off at the first turn. Box 8 will help him and he cannot be dismissed.

Race 5: Million Dollar Chase City Qualifier 2 Non Graded 520m

What a race! You can make a genuine case for every runner. March Legend was dominant before taking on the best in the country. Big Opal Rocks has big wraps on him down south and his 29.02 win at Sandown was mind-blowing. He needs the inside and has it tonight and could do anything here on debut. Plaintiff is in the leading Thompson kennel and is yet to run worse than second in eight career starts and ran second to Wow She’s Fast in the down there two weeks back. Zippy Tesla is the strong dog, but not sure you can give many of these a start and a beating. Tachycardic has been superb during the Egg carnival but meets a hot field here. Likes it off the track, so will be well boxed. Doonan is a freak but has been below his best of late. However, the Lords have a way of producing them when needed and this is his acid test. Aston Barak has been our best bet on more than one occasion and is a top class dog, although it looks as though he might miss a place in this field.

Race 6: Million Dollar Chase City Qualifier 3 Non Graded 520m

Another quality field and the Victorians just keep coming, with five of them here. Compliance scorched the track at Ballarat, winning a Group 2 there in near record time. Still a young dog on the up who has only had two goes here and is bound to be improved. Lala Kiwi put her best paw forward to take out the Group 3 Ambrosoli on Egg night. She is another that is still improving here and with the vacant box under her should get good early room. Photo Man is another Victorian and, while not quite in the class of the other two, certainly can’t be dismissed entirely. Off the inside box, expect some improvement from Coast Model.

Race 7: Million Dollar Chase City Qualifier 4 Non Graded 520m

Castle Warrior loves box 1 and loves it here. He won the Bulli and followed it up with the Listed Ultra Sense on Egg night. He has 27 placings from 28 starts with 14 wins, and there is no reason in a quality race he can’t keep that record going tonight. Daph’s Ascend has been chasing the best in the country and gets a chance to show how good she is. With the vacant box 5, she could lead this. Good To Go is pure quality but is much better drawn down near the fence. Kaheem Bale has been flying at the Meadows and that track is a tight one too, so might be really well placed out in the no.8 on debut and could be value in a tough race. Boston Garden can win this comfortably, but you will know your fate within three seconds of box rise as he either pings and wins or he dwells and finds trouble.

Race 8: Million Dollar Chase City Qualifier 5 Non Graded 520m

This is the last of the qualifiers, and some might say they have left the best till last. Victorian superstar Wow She’s Fast (and yes, she is) heads north for the first time. There was talk she would bypass this series, but the fact she is in sizzling form just demanded a shot at the big payday. She won the Launching Pad final off this box and has taken all before her recently. Vice Grip heads east from WA to have a go at the riches and his form is exquisite. His recent Cannington form is first class, but he meets a smart field here. Panorama was brought down from Queensland for this and is a chance in a tough race. Black Fox would need to improve, as would Indy Matilda, but both have minor hopes. is always a hope around here.

Race 9: Masters Meteor Heats April 27 5th Grade 520m

Hardman Cortis has a good record away from Wentworth Park, where we are yet to see his best. He likes to be drawn down close to the fence and finds a very winnable 5th Grade here tonight. Spring Meteor will appreciate being back in 5th Grade company, and if he can muster quickly enough off a tough draw, he can certainly figure in this. Springview Hawk is another that will appreciate the drop in class and did win a 3/4th Grade here in 30.3 a few runs back and is 1/1 from the 7. Sooky Lala is strong but often gives away just too much start.

Race 10: MDC Maiden Heats April 27 5th Grade 520m

A very open 5th Grade closes out a great night of chasing. Grim Madara, who has been grim for his followers of late, gets one last shot. Agland Luai has been great of late and likes the outside draws, so he may well lead and win this. Magic Hulk is honest without being Marvellous (see what I did there) and keeps picking up cheques. Ebby Academy is in good hands and will appreciate box 1, and Direct Mae usually shows good early pace before regressing down the back.
