Tony Brassel’s best bets for Warwick Farm Wednesday

Tony Brassel’s best bets for Warwick Farm Wednesday


Chris Waller’s conservative, careful training methods may just apply to the filly Scat’s Surfer Girl in race two (1400m) at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

Jason Collett steers both Scat’s Surfer Girl and also another Waller runner I fancy, Disorderly (Race 1), for the first time.

At her last run Scat’s Surfer Girl finished fifth (beaten 2.4 lengths) to subsequent Group 1 winner Profondo at Kensington on September 1 – four months ago.


But I don’t imagine the Ingham family-owned filly would have been lounging around too long in a paddock.

Waller is a master at breaking up a thoroughbred’s preparation, then bringing them back refreshed and hot-to-trot.

The term ‘spell’ isn’t always applicable to this innovative stable.

After a powerful final 100m when sixth in a Canterbury trial, Scat’s Surfer Girl coasted home with a Warwick Farm heat on the polytrack.

The youngster looked fresh and super-willing in the run home, at no stage was she subjected to any pressure.

If completely tuned for her race return, she’ll give this a genuine shake.


Numerically, Chris Waller’s gigantic stable has cornered the market in Sydney so expect more of the same after this week’s Magic Millions Sales.

It’s often a conundrum finding the best stable runner in a race, but Disorderly is above the odds in Wednesday’s Warwick Farm kick-off (1400m).

It’s not a hard race to win, and Disorderly has displayed gate speed plus he has finished powerfully on more than one occasion.

Forget his 11 lengths eighth at Canterbury last start.

Disorderly pulled up 3/5 lame on a heavy track so assess him on a powerful debut third at Newcastle on October 30.

Several very tasty, easy-going trials suggest Waller’s now gelded youngster can lift his game, especially with blinkers on.

In a caper often driven by tradition, Waller has been at the forefront of introducing and systemising modern racehorse training.

But one of the old, tried-and-tested moves with a freshly-minted gelding is to apply blinkers. Pronto!
