Descent On The Rise At Wagga (Monday)

It’s hard to believe as a six-year-old the potential of Noble Descent is still unknown but he could take another step towards showing what he is made of at Wagga on Monday.

Noble Descent has only raced 19 times in a career interrupted by setbacks, but has shown enough to suggest he can win the heat of the Rising Stars which is restricted to apprentice jockeys.

Former Sydney apprentice Blaike McDougall, who now calls Albury home, has the score on the board in his own career and will again link with Noble Descent who has 61 kilograms.

McDougall has covered plenty of kilometres this month between Victoria and Sydney for race rides and could be rewarded with success in one of the feature races.

Noble Descent has raced twice this campaign for a first-up win by three and a half lengths and was then a strong second behind Not Too Sure in the Stan Sadleir where he carried seven kilograms less.

Not Too Sure has confirmed the form finishing second behind My Maher in the Snake Gully Cup at Gundagai.

Ideally drawn in gate two, Noble Descent is poised to win for the fifth time in his limited racing career.

“It’s a nice race for him, but he does have a big weight but he is also a big horse,” trainer Gary Colvin said.

Elle A Walking is another of the chances with the Sydney trained mare needing a new jockey to replace Aaron Sweeney.

The jockey had his appendix removed on Saturday and is expected to be out of action for six weeks.

Elle A Walking is the winner of five races and has bene successful up to 1400 metres.

She has been placed once over 1600 metres at Canberra three starts ago.

Noble Descent is the early favourite ahead of Elle A Walking with Palamedes next in line.

Meanwhile, Rising Force is expected to line-up in the Mountaineer Cup (3200m) after a narrow win at the Bong Bong Picnics on Friday.

Rising Force is also a recent winner at Wagga and finished second at Gundagai over the Snake Gully Cup carnival.

Top weight Irenic is also on the back-up after a gallant fifth in Sydney on Thursday.

Irenic is in career best form and with 59 kilograms on his back needs to concede all of his rivals five kilograms.
