28/11/2019 Wyong Preview
by Gary Harley
The $50,000 Hudson Homes Wyong Town Plate (1350m) will highlight the eight race program at Wyong on Thursday.
Local trainer Tracey Bartley will saddle up Commute and Triple Choice in the feature race with Commute expected to start favourite. The four year old is a winner on her home track and she has been runner up in her last two starts at Warwick Farm and Hawkesbury. Two starts back Commute was beaten less than a length in a Benchmark 70 at Warwick Farm. Last start at Hawkesbury on November 13 the mare chased the winner Bandersnatch throughout and she was beaten 3 ½ lengths.
The winner went like a bomb and Commute beat the rest of the field easily. Rachel King rode her at Hawkesbury and she has the mount on Thursday.
The Gary Portelli trained Test Of War will be hard to beat. He is a winner at Wyong and his recent Hawkesbury form is hard to fault. In early betting Commute has been heavily supported from $3 to $2.
