Race day focus: Best bets, analysis for Warrnambool on Thursday

Herald Sun form analyst Brad Waters runs the rule over Thursday’s card at Warrnambool.


ROCK OF KRYPTONITE (Race 10 No. 2 – $3.60)

Rock Of Kryptonite is an improving sprinter that has posted wins in different styles at both runs this time in. He’s drawn well and can complete a hat-trick of wins on Thursday.


FORT CHARLES (Race 2 No. 4 – $5)

Fort Charles was a shade unlucky when fourth first-up at Geelong last month. He’ll be fitter for that and the 2000m will suit him perfectly at Warrnambool.

FIORENTE LASS (Race 7 No. 10 – $4.40)

Fiorente Lass has drawn a tricky gate but will be hard to beat back on her home track. She was solid after giving a start at Ballarat and good when second to the Sandown winner Sarodec two runs back.

VILLA VILLEKULLA (Race 9 No. 1 – $4.40)

Villa Villekulla was a good winner at Cranbourne two runs back before producing a steady effort in heavy ground at Ballarat last time. He races well at Warrnambool and can bounce back.

OUT AND DREAMING (Race 6 No. 3 – $6)

Out And Dreaming has been a revelation since turning to the hurdling caper with wins at Warrnambool at Sandown. He’ll be hard to beat again despite stepping up a touch in grade.



Jumps jockeys will be in action in six races at Warrnambool on Thursday and Ronan Short will be in the thick of the action with most of his rides. AMERICAN IN PARIS (Race 1 No. 3 – $1.70), SARASOTA GOLD (Race 2 No. 9 – $101), UNDER THE BRIDGE (Race 3 No. 9 – $9.50), JIMMY’S SECRET (Race 4 No. 2 – $3.80), CALIBURN (Race 5 No. 1 – $7.50), DODGE CITY (Race 6 No. 9 – $26).


Geelong races on Friday before Flemington and Donald hold Saturday’s Victorian meetings. The Ballarat Synthetic track will be in use again on Sunday while Bendigo also races. Wangaratta will host Monday’s meeting while the Pakenham Synthetic circuit will be the scene of Tuesday’s card.
