By Tony Megahey Popular local trainer Gratz Vella has flying TAB Highway winner, Wanna Get A What primed with successive impressive jump outs into the prestigious Queanbeyan TAB “Thunderbolt” on Sunday. And the veteran Vella is buoyed by the opinion of Tommy Berry and neighbouring Canberra trainer Joe Cleary as Wanna Get A What carries 56.5kg for Richard Bensley in the $25.000 ALLBIDS.COM-sponsored 1000m dash. “When Tommy won that Hawkesbury Highway last prep on him, he said he had the feel of a horse that would win better races in town at his next prep, and a natural speed horse,” Vella enthused. “Joe has a really smart filly in Lucy Rose in the race, she won the Wellington Boot and Joe told me he rather miss mine and race somewhere, but I see Joe is taking on the older horses. “Anyway, mine is as good as I can get him first up, both his jump outs were strong and he’s a horse that needs plenty of work as he’s a good ‘doer’ and he has a tendency to put on weight. “Last prep I went to Orange with just the one jump out, thinking it was just a matter of him going around for the prizemoney, but he got beat ‘cause he was too fat. “This time I’ve done it differently and I’m really happy going into the race. It’s one of the strongest country sprints I’ve seen down here but he’s drawn to lead. That’s where he races best, and he’ll take some catching at 1000 metres. “All going well, we’ll look at going to Sydney.” Wanna Get A What has won four races from just nine starts and has rarely been led. The four-year old gelding heads the betting markets, while performed sprinters Ultima Chance and Warwick Farm placegetter She Zar are top of the weights. Queanbeyan at present is a good four rating.
