Wonderful Story Heads 2016 Inglis Classic Betting

Chris Waller’s unraced colt Wonderful Story is the firming favourite to win on debut this weekend in Sydney’s Inglis Classic 2016 at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

The restricted feature is the richest race on the Breeders Classic Day card with a full field of 16, including emergency Dream Faith coming in for the scratched Deodara (15), to face off in the $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m).

Due to run as Randwick Race 5 at 3:05pm (AEST), this year’s Inglis Classic betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au feature five single figure hopes.

After firming in from an opening price of $3.50 to $3.20, the market mover and current favourite for the win is Waller’s promising son of Street Sense Wonderful Story.

The debutant has had three Sydney trials leading up to his first-up run including a 905m win in the wet on February 1 with James McDonald aboard.

McDonald is replaced in the saddle on race day by Tim Clark, Wonderful Storm set to jump from barrier nine looking to live up to the pre-race hype that has to do with the likely rain-affected Randwick track this weekend.

Second best in the latest Inglis Classic odds at $4.20 is Twist Tops in gate 10 with Tommy Berry in the saddle.

Prepared in Newcastle by Kris Lees, this Beneteau filly has had three previous starts but chases her maiden win.

She ran fourth to Calliope at Randwick last October on debut in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) before a luckless 12th from a wide barrier at Moonee Valley in the Inglis Banner (1000m) on Cox Plate Day.

Twist Tops put in a big effort in her returning run on January 23 over the 1000m at Randwick when runner-up to Scarlet Rain on a Heavy (8) track, conditions likely to be similar on Saturday where the filly is out to finish strongly again.

Third favourite at $6 and drawn the inside alley with barrier one is the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Rampage.

Blake Shinn rides the All American colt for his third career start in place of Luke Currie who was aboard for the galloper’s opening two runs.

A winner at Moonee Valley on debut last November, Rampage was last seen finishing a brave third behind current 2016 Blue Diamond Stakes favourite Extreme Choice in the Inglis Nursery (1000m) back on December 12.

The gate is an advantage for the horse coming off an eight week break so long as the track isn’t too muddy.

The last of the single figure hopes at $9 each are dual winner Rafha’s Choice and Soviet Secret drawn in barriers four and 12 respectively.

Bede Murray’s Kembla Grange-trained I Am Invincible colt Rafha’s Choice has won two from three to date and is out to improve on a seventh when beaten nine lengths in the Inglis Nursery.

He has since won a Nowra trial over 900m on a Heavy (10) track however and so has the potential to let down in the wet.

Soviet Secret is second-up this weekend with James McDonald aboard the Eavesdroper filly from Mornington.

Prepared by Sam Pritchard-Gordon she debuted at Sandown-Hillside in mid-November and was only just nosed out of the win in the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes (1000m) by Jackson.
