Wolf Runs Them Ragged at Tauranga

Dubai Wolf hasn’t always been the easiest horse to follow, but there’s no doubt he’s got the talent to make his mark in better company. The Cambridge five-year-old has been lightly-raced and has the tidy record of three wins from 10 starts for trainer Stephen Marsh.

The bold chestnut’s latest victory at Tauranga yesterday was achieved in fine style with a two and a-quarter length drubbing of his Rating 75 opposition. “He likes to get to the front, he’s got a pretty level head and he’s happy there,” stable representative Rhys Mildon said.

Dubai Wolf was pressured early on, but he relaxed well and found another gear on the bend to put a winning break on the field. “It was a good solid effort and he was very comfortable,” rider Michael Coleman said. “He’s a bit lazy and I didn’t think he was travelling that well before the turn, but he found a length quite quickly off the top of the straight.”
