Trainer Denise Wise is hoping for more rain after Master Moving’s thrilling win at Albury on Tuesday.
The eight-year-old ($6) led all the way to pip fellow Albury trainer Andrew Dale’s Leica Bita Magic ($3) and Bezazzalled ($2.50F) in the Benchmark 50 (1400m) on the Melbourne Cup day meet.
“He loves the sting out of the ground, so that was in our favour,” Wise said.
The morning rain resulted in a soft seven track.
“I know it’s coming on summer, but I hope to find a track that’s still a bit soft,” Wise said.
“He still goes alright on the hard going, I’ll just pray there’s soft going somewhere and, if not, we’ll keep kicking on.”
It was the gelding’s second win from 25 starts and first since August, 2017.
“I’ve only got six (horses) in work, it’s just my brother, it’s a small family operation we’re going with and we’ve got a couple more in (at Albury) on Thursday,” she said.
Wise has Martharaptor in the first over 1500m and Silks ‘n’ Stars in the 900m sprint.
