Groenewegen is the one to beat
Patience is a virtue, so it'll be worth the wait until the last race to place your main bet tonight.
That is when Dish & Dime Stable's GROENEWEGEN meets a beatable field in the Open Benchmark 67 event over 1,400m on turf.
The Cliff Brown-trained four-year-old appears to have many things in his favour - an inside draw, an ideal trip over the favourable long course and, most important of all, good trackform.
A consistent sort who finished out of the frame in only two of his 17 starts, Groenewegen has been working very well after a good, short break.
He was very pleasing indeed when second to Royal Ruler in his trial last week, coming home fluidly without being extended.
The brown Australian-bred gelding topped up with a brilliant piece of gallop on the right-handed Track 6 on Tuesday morning with race-rider Michael Rodd astride.
Rodd partnered Groenewegen in two of his three wins and, only two starts back, rode the horse to finish second behind Absolute Miracle in a fast-run race over 1,400m.
From barrier 2 tonight, Rodd should be able to secure a handy spot and go for the kill in the straight.
