Vic Peters $195,000 Group 1 Event
25 October 2013
NSW runners dominate this Saturday’s Group 1 Vic Peters heats at Wentworth Park.
The three week, $75,000 to the winner series has attracted a high calibre of home state
contenders with only limited interstate runners deciding to take on the series.
The first five from each of this week’s heats, plus two fastest sixth’s will line up in November
2’s four semi-finals, with first and second from the semis to appear in the final.
The opening heat features last start winner, Cut Me Off from box 7, trained by Peter Lagogiane
and touted as one of his best ever in work, Cut Me Off meets Kelly Bravo prepared Gimme Fuel
as well as Pleiades for Lorraine Roy. Unlucky in recent starts Pleiades is capable of showing
improvement enough to win this heat.
Heat two features Group 3 Nowra Puppy Classic winner, Ritza Hattie drawn in box five. Ritza
Hattie is flying at the moment and showed strong improvement in each of her Nowra Puppy
Classic outings so will be well suited to this three week series.
Race 6 on the card, is the third qualifier and arguably the strongest event of the night.
Featuring unbeaten Avondale Porche and Wentworth Park speedster, Zipping Willow, this heat
is loaded with depth with the likes of Premier Mozz, Ritza Liam and Ding’s Change also drawn.
This race is not to be missed.
One of the sole interstate raiders features in heat four, drawn well in box five, Whata Good
Size won most recently at Bendigo at the start of the month. With six starts for two wins and
three placings from the middle draw, this usually awkward ally does not look likely to hamper
the Jason Thompson prepared runner. Whata Good Size meets Royal Sprite, last start winner
Patone Green and placegetter in the Nowra Puppy Classic, Folk Tails.
Heat 5 sees the return of Tasmanian runner Buckle Up Wes for Ted Medhurst. Medhurst has
had success at the Glebe circuit over the past 12 months with stayer, Bell Haven and Buckle Up
Wes looks likely to continue the run for the Apple Isle conditioner after winning in 29.82 on
debut at the track over a month ago. Buckle Up Wes will have to get across from box 8 but
looks the winner.
The final run-off is an open affair with the likes of Cawbourne Brodie, Calamity Trigger, Placid
Planet, Being Good and Frosty Vintage all drawn. Cawbourne Brodie has the sub 30 second
time on the board and will appreciate the box one draw. Placid Planet stewards trialled on
Monday night at Wentworth Park and will be improved for the look at the circuit.
Racing on Saturday commences at 7.27pm, with gates open at 5.30pm. With a strong support
card, the GBOTA encourages all to get out to the track.
