Australian horse racing bet of the day - Waller’s mare ready to peak at Mornington on Wednesday

  • Peak performance expected.
  • Sanaya maps perfectly.
  • Confidence rating: 90%

Sydney’s leading trainer, Chris Waller, has employed the services of top Victorian rider Damien Oliver for both of his Mornington runners on Wednesday, and one in particular looks like a special.

Sanaya, a four-year-old daughter of More Than Ready, has done all of her racing in NSW and now comes to Victoria at her peak and ready to win Race 3, the Sunset Cinema Plate (1500m).

She only had two runs in her first campaign, and although she returned in great order in her next preparation, placing in four of her first five runs, it wasn’t until her sixth-up run she scored a comprehensive 1.8-length victory.

Having raced between 1200m and 1400m, she really appreciated the step up to 1500m with fitness on her side at her sixth run.

This campaign, Sanaya has followed a very similar path, racing between 1100m and 1300m, and her best two runs have been over 1300m.

She now steps up to 1500m on Wednesday and is sixth-up from a spell.

Waller places his horses extremely well from state to state, and following a BM71 race where she carried 57kg, she now contests a BM70 with 56kg and has drawn perfectly in barrier 2.

Although Sanaya can get back in her races, she sat right behind the leaders when stepping up to 1500m last campaign, and with the slightly slower tempo and fitness on her side, Oliver should be looking for the same spot this time.

Sensational Ally and Caves will come across and set a modest tempo, while Eolande (barrier 1) and Sanaya should balance up behind the leaders.

Eolande is rising in distance second-up from a spell, and that’s a recipe that can more often than not see a flat performance – she’s favourite but I’m happy to take her on.

Sensational Ally is in the same predicament but also rises in class and weight and I think she’ll fade after trying to lead throughout.

Meanwhile, Sanaya will peel off Caves back on the turn, kick for home early in the straight and let her fitness defy all challengers – well, that’s how I see it playing out anyway.

I don’t think anything else can come from behind Sanaya and win, so she really does look a special on a track that will suit her this time around.
