WAYSIDE AND SAVERIO SECOND UP

Aug 18, 2017

Three and a half years since his race track debut, Saverio gets arguably his best chance to taste success at Belmont in the Get The TABtouch Maiden (1200m).

He is second-up this preparation and has drawn barrier eight before scratchings.

Co-trainer Todd Harvey hopes he can find cover closer to the speed this time, in contrast to his eye-catching run first up when Saverio was forced to snag to the back of the field.

Matthieu Autier sticks with Big Sav, who was $3.90 with TABtouch on Friday night.

He travels to Belmont with Wayside who is also second-up.

He also caught the eye first-up after being trapped wide in a race that was run slowly.

Wayside avoided trouble and made ground late and now he steps up to the 1600m in the WA Bookmakers Association Leading Apprentice 2017/18 Handicap.

Shaun McGruddy will again jump aboard, and with just 54kgs on his back, Todd said he should be hitting the line hard again.
