Trainer Andrew Dale will heavily target Saturday’s Wodonga meeting with seven runners.
The stable enjoys a healthy strike rate at Wodonga and racing manager Frazer Dale pinpointed Chairman’s Choice as their best each-way hope on the eight race card.
Chairman’s Choice finished runner-up at Corowa at his most recent run and is set to contest the $25,000 Benchmark 58 Hcp, (1100m).
Jake Duffy takes the ride.
Dale said the Corowa race has since proven to be a strong form pointer.
“Chairman’s Choice has been super consistent since joining the stable and was unlucky not to win at his most recent start at Corowa,” Dale said.
“The form out of the race since has been quite strong.
“Seventh Seal who won at Corowa and Underwood who ran third both run well at Wagga last Sunday.
“Underwood dead-heated for first, while Seventh Seal finished third which gives us a bit of confidence.
“I thought Chairman’s Choice was the run of the race at Corowa and arguably should of won.”
Chairman’s Choice is quoted as a $10-chance in fixed odds markets.
The Ben and JD Hayes-trained Fast Sagrado is the $1.90-favourite.
The three-year-old gelding finished third at Echuca on debut before scoring the first win of his career at his most recent start at Warracknabeel.
