Unanimously Tops 2014 Wagga Town Plate Field & Odds

The action of the Wagga Gold Cup Carnival kicks off in country New South Wales today with the Wagga Town Plate 2014 where Matthew Dale’s defending champ Unanimously is the favourite to win again.

The Canberra-based six-year-old is one of a capacity field of sprinters engaged in this year’s $85,000 XXXX Gold 2014 Wagga Town Plate (1200m) which runs as Race 7 at 3:54pm.

They’re the top rated of the final acceptors too and add a level of class to the contenders’ list, Unanimously to carry the 59kg top weight from barrier 14 with Blake Shinn aboard.

Currently paying $3.20 in the Wagga Town Plate odds the Not A Single Doubt gelding is also the market mover for their third-up run this prep.

They come off two very close seconds in Melbourne most recently defeated a nose by Pago Rock in the Noel Rundle Handicap (1100m) at Caulfield on April 19.

They’re after their first win in 12 months, Unanimously not having been first past the post since their three length romp here over Vilakazi Street when ridden by Glyn Schofield last May with 56kg.

Hot on the reigning Wagga Town Plate winners’ heels in this year’s markets at $3.50 is then Taxmeifyoucan drawn two on their inside with Brenton Avdulla to ride on 55.5kg.

Gregory Hickman’s Ad Valorem four-year-old is first-up here not having raced since their failed 13th when beating home just one other runner in last December’s Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1500m).

Before that their form was good including a Goulburn Cup second to Any Day Will Do over the mile.

First-up they’ll appreciate the shorter distance and coming back in class making them a top chance.

Despite the starting line-up to feature the full 16 runners this afternoon there are just two other hopes under double figures to win, and one’s not even assured of a run.

First emergency Who’s Paying has already earned a call up with the early scratching of Caprossa but it is third emergency, the Peter Smith-trained Play Master who the bookies are taking no chances with.

They’re paying $7.50 to win having run top two in their past five runs.

A winner of five of their 10 career starts, the Masterprint five-year-old was last seen running second in a Benchmark 70 over the 1200m at Caulfield on April 21 before which they won three straight.

An $8 chance on the fourth line of betting is then Cum Dividend ($8) who has the second widest gate to overcome in the big field.

Liam Birchley’s Brisbane raider comes off the back of some very good form back home in Queensland, the Show A Heart five-year-old last seen finishing second over the 1400m at Eagle Farm on April 19.

They are set to fly dropping back in distance then with their last win being over the 1200m at Doomben a month ago.

Other notable hopes then include the Brett Cavanough-trained Mossman gelding Number One Gun ($11) last seen running a disappointing 12th in the Magic Millions Cup on the Gold Coast, the rails-drawn local galloper Living On A Prayer ($12) and the returning Darci Be Good ($13) for Bede Murray running for the first tine since a dead last in the Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) at Randwick last September.
