THREE heats of the Ladbrokes sponsored Graeme Hull Memorial Wagga Cup (525m) highlights racing out of the Riverina this Friday night.

While just three qualifiers for the $10,000 to-the-winner series have been assembled, some quality types are set to take their place, including Friday night’s electrifying 30.20 winner Cawbourne Marty.

Defeating kennelmate Winlock Huddy in a ding-dong battle for almost the entirety of the 525 metre journey, both chasers head into Friday night’s heats with terrific claims for Jodie and Andy Lord, Cawbourne Marty lining up in heat two (box 3) while Winlock Huddy rugs up in heat three (box 5).

Heat one sees Gary Kimber’s prolific winner Corleone King take his place from box three, taking on recent Bulli winner Tom’s Desire for Peter Sims.

While Cawbourne Marty will prove hard to toss in qualifier two, the Wagga debut of Good Odds Meghan, third in Saturday’s Group 3 Ladies Bracelet Final, adds plenty of intrigue, as does Fierce Fran for Mick Clayton out in box eight, the 12 race victor a fast 29.96 Wentworth Park winner last start.

The third and final heat looks an absorbing clash between Winlock Huddy, a 29.56 Wentworth Park winner, and Frank Hurst’s Good Odds Buddy, the blue blood an outstanding second to Dual Keroma at headquarters on the weekend.

A winner four runs back at Wenty in a sizzling 29.55, Good Odds Buddy looks well boxed out wide and a great chance of saluting at his Wagga debut.
