Race five will see a class one combined maiden plate over 1800 m with Cochrans Gap to be joined by Stacey Metcalfe jumping from barrier three third up from a spell.

Last time out the six-year-old gelding finished seven of 12 over a mile at Wagga when competing in a class 2 and should get a nice run behind genuine tempo, though in three career runs, third up from a spell, he has not won or placed, & the singular career win came off the back of a good surface.

Best of luck to all connected with their runners at Wagga on Friday.
