Talented three-year-old SCALLOPINI will attempt to win for the third consecutive start when he lines up at Doomben on Wednesday.
The Steve O’Dea (pictured)-trained son of SNITZEL has been dominant in his last two outings and been entered for the 1200m Class 2.
But before that, the John Bateman-trained WYENDRA makes her debut in the 1300m Maiden at Canberra on Friday after winning a barrier trial on her home track of Goulburn last month.
Our other runner in the week ahead will be FRANCISCA for the O’Dea stable. The daughter of LOPE DE VEGA is beautifully placed on the 54kg minimum in a 1350m Class 2 at Doomben on Wednesday after finishing second to a subsequent stakes performer last start.
