Off the back of a last start second, Ilwendo is the favourite to take out the Chairmans Handicap (2000m) this Saturday at Doomben.
The Matty Smith trained gelding was on speed last time out in the Gosford Cup at Randwick and tried hard when second to Another Dollar ($6.5-$5.5). McGillivray has a good record when combining with the stable and heads the market for this race, into $4.60 from $5.
Another Dollar sits on the second line of betting having beaten Ilwendo last time out. Hot on their heels is Live And Free, who was disappointing last start in the Scone Cup. He’s hovering around the $6-$6.50 mark.
