Wildcat Wizard grabs me as a good ew bet for Saturday in the Wokingham, he has high draw in 25, the race has been going the way of 4yo's in recent years and Tom Queally has been booked to do the steering in place of Jamie Spencer.
The stable think he has never been in better form and that he should be taken seriously on Saturday. The race at Ascot in which he was 2nd behind Medicean Man, Noverre to Go 3rd, produced a time of 1m 13.38s which would have been good enough to have won any of the last 3 Wokingham's on Good to Firm.
That race was won well by Medicean Man and Jeremy Gask thinks he is open to further improvement, however Jamie Spencer, as is his want, had Wildcat Wizard out the back that day before producing him with a run when it was all too late. I fancy that Tom Queally will have him sitting just off the pace this time, before producing him in the final furlong.
His next race came a bit too soon for him the following week when he finished 3rd behind Rileyskeepingfaith and he was also slightly interfered with there. Paul Cole thinks he is best suited by 7f and this race has always benefitted horses that stay that bit further as it is a stiff track.
The going at Ascot is heading towards being firm and the far side is the fastest part of the course it would seem and that is where the pace is likely to be.
Wildcat Wizard is good ew bet for the Wokingham and if you can get any of the 33/1 then it is good value as I think he will be in the thick of it come the end.
I will have some more views on the race together with a race at Haydock amongst others on Saturday Morning.
