Sportsbet.com.au punters have singled out a runner at long odds to take out the Wagga Town Plate (1200m) at Wagga on Thursday afternoon.

Griepel, trained by Geoff Duryea, who has a very good record when sending horses to Wagga, comes here off the back of a last start 12th at Caulfield behind the Stakes performed Miss Gunpowder. Someone clearly knows something, because he has been $31 to $17.

In a wide open race, Ziggy Willie is the $6.50 favourite despite a poor first up run at Randwick behind Nieta, but he gets back on top of the ground and draws a lovely gate.

The run of the race from the Prelude was Got The Goss and he looks really good value at $8.50. He has been pretty solid, opening $8.
