Tried And Tired Leads 2015 Wangoom Handicap Field & Odds

The opening black-type of this week’s Warrnambool Racing Carnival is the Wangoom Handicap 2015 on Wednesday where the Leon & Troy Corstens-trained Tried And Tired is the early favourite despite his hefty top weight.

Set to run as Warrnambool Race 7 at 3:20pm (AEST) on Wednesday, this year’s $150,000 Listed Midfield Group Wangoom Handicap (1200m) features a full field of 16 starters plus the John Salanitri-trained emergency Royal Island.

Sitting top of the Wangoom Handicap field and weights with a hefty 60kg allocation is the consistent Niello five-year-old Tried And Tired racing second-up.

Winner of the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Sandown-Lakeside on Boxing Day, the gelding also finished runner-up in the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) at Flemington and third in the Listed Barton Stakes (1400m) at Sandown-Hillside during a strong summer campaign.

He returned from a break on April 18 at Caulfield and finished a solid fourth just one and a half lengths off the winner Politeness in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) carrying 58.5kg.

He is up in weights this week but has a solid second-up record of two wins from three attempts, and also has three wins from five runs over the 1200m leading into the race where Damien Oliver has the mount from barrier 10 (nine with the emergency out).

While he has to be at his best to handle the kilos, the bookmakers have Tried And Tired sitting top of the current Wangoom Handicap odds at $4.60.

He is followed in the markets by three other single figure hopes including the $5.50 second pick Mr Utopia who is drawn out wide in gate 15.

Mark Zahra has the ride on Robert Smerdon’s last start winning Elusive Quality gelding, the five-year-old beating home Boomwaa on a Heavy (8) Flemington track a fortnight back in a Benchmark 90 with 58.5kg.

The horse drops back two kilos on Wednesday, so even from out wide is considered a livewire chance.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 are then Henwood ($6.50) in gate 16 and Sino Eagle ($8.50) drawn at the opposite end of the field with the inside alley.

Glen Boss jumps aboard the John Sadler-trained Savabeel six-year-old Henwood for the first time wince a second over 1000m at Moonee Valley last Cox Plate Day, the horse second-up after running dead last to Hard Romp at Flemington on April 11.

Sino Eagle meanwhile gets in on the 54kg minimum for jockey Linda Meech, Peter Moody’s Casino Prince mare the best fancied of the females set to get the run of the race from barrier one.

Other notable Wangoom Handicap hopefuls at more generous odds include 33-start veteran Blackie ($12), Scott Brunton’s Tasmanian visitor Tougher Than Ever ($13) and the Wez Hunter-trained four-year-old Magnus Lad ($13) coming off a third in the Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) at Mornington from March 28.
