Daily Mail: Country cup king at ‘The Bool’

Three-time G2 champion Ferdinand Boy faces G2 Geelong Gold Cup winner Weblec Jet and impressive heat winner Substantial in tonight’s $5,000 to-the-winner Warrnambool Star final.

Silver Brute is eyeing five straight wins in the $10,000 to-the-winner Warrnambool Summer Sizzle final, but Pink Diamond winner Diamond Ability and Orson Mick must be respected.

G2 Ballarat Cup runner-up Special Talent and G1 Harrison-Dawson placegetter Carry On Angel headline the 525m Free For All at The Meadows this evening, while G1 Hume Cup winner Knicks Bale stands out in a Mixed 4/5 600m race.

First
🦵:
Win – MR. HOLYFIELD
📍 Warrnambool 🏁 Race 1 🔲 Box 4 📏 450m ⏱ 6:04pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.45 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540038/race/1


Second
🦵: Place – ASTON PROFIT
📍 Warrnambool 🏁 Race 9 🔲 Box 1 📏 450m ⏱ 8:46pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.35 Place (Top two finish required)
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540038/race/9


Third
🦵: Place – BLAZING PENNY
📍 Warrnambool 🏁 Race 12 🔲 Box 2 📏 390m ⏱ 9:51pm
TAB fixed odds: $2.70 Place (Top two finish required)
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540038/race/12


The Watchdog says
🎤 : MR. HOLYFIELD (4) has been impressive to date, and he won’t get a better chance to break through. ASTON PROFIT (1) is flying at present, and she will set a cracking pace. The last 30m is a worry, but she should have enough in the tank for a top-two finish. BLAZING PENNY (2) is better than her form reads and she can come out running, so with a clean getaway, a top-two finish looks likely.

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

Warrnambool Star Final

📍 Warrnambool 🏁 Race 8
🔲 Box 8 📏 450m ⏱ 8:27pm

TAB fixed odds: $2.10 Win

The Watchdog says 🎤: FERDINAND BOY (8) is a star speedster who has been luckless of late and I’m expecting him to make amends tonight. He is armed with blistering pace soon after box rise and with no runner on his outside, he should avoid crowding and then assume control after around 50m.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

Great line-up and SUBSTANTIAL (5) is going to command plenty of respect after scoring here last Saturday night in an electrifying 24.86sec. The draw was a big advantage in his heat, so with the amount of depth in this event, he can’t afford to make any mistakes at box rise. Superstar FERDINAND BOY (8) has been luckless of late, and he is expected to make amends tonight. His box manners have not been great of late, however with no runner on his outside, he will get every chance to balance up and he should assume control soon after box rise. CRACKERJACK KEG (1) and ZEEBA’S LEGACY (2) are both racing well and have solid claims, while Group 2 Geelong Gold Cup champion WEBLEC JET (3) will be charging to the line.
