Border-hopping Ajyaal a warm favourite at Wagga

Still in his first prep, the striking son of Deep Field out of a Zabeel mare has easily won his last two in Maiden and BM 66 company down the road at Albury.

In fact, the stable took two runners to Albury on October 26, Ajyaal along with Fanaar who also bolted in as a well-backed favourite.

Up the road, Wagga is as much on their radar. The team launched a two-pronged attack on November 1, missing out with 3-year-old filly Gentlemen’s Words, but making a one-act affair of a Heat in the Wagga Stayers Series, with city class gelding Da Deputy who strolled home by more than 11 lengths.

Ajyaal looks in a two-horse war on Monday with talented 4-year-old Wagga gelding The Chaplain, who charged home to win this grade at Corowa last start.

The stable will have a tougher job on its hands with gelded import King Kiritan, who was out the back resuming in a stronger race at Kyneton, but needs to improve sharply to land Monday’s BM 66 Handicap over the mile against two improving 6-year-old, Supreme Polarity from Canberra and Kembla-based Old Man’s Angel.

One of the shorter priced and best bets on the card looks to be smart Canberra mare Flying Yankee, resuming with blinkers on for the first time in a BM 58 over 1000m.

In the final race, progressive 4-year-old local mare Walingi looks hard to beat third-up in a Class 1 Handicap over 1200m.
