Timeform pick out the three best bets from Wellington on Monday…
“…drops significantly in grade on his return from four months on the sidelines…”
Timeform on King’s Champ
#5 Sue’s Girlfriend – Wellington R5 (07:15 BST)
Sue’s Girlfriend is improving with racing and should take plenty of beating if arriving in the same form as when winning a class 1 event at Narromine last time. Bid To Fame has been knocking on the door in recent starts and is feared most ahead of Petain.
#7 Soldier Poy – Wellington R6 (07:50 BST)
Soldier Poy gained a deserved first victory at Gilgandra two weeks ago, keeping going well to land the spoils by half a length. That form reads well in the context of this race, so he looks to hold sound claims in his follow-up bid, leaving Poster Man and Brunela to complete the shortlist.
#1 King’s Champ – Wellington R7 (08:25 BST)
King’s Champ drops significantly in grade on his return from four months on the sidelines, during which time he has switched trainers. That move could bring about some improvement and help him to record a third career success. Just A Flash and Policy are others to consider.
