Callaghan and Alta reunite

5 August 2022

After finishing fourth in Grand Circuit company last start Alta Orlando is back on home soil racing at Menangle on Saturday night.

The Belinda McCarthy-trained pacer was just out of the place prizemoney in the Blacks A Fake Queensland Championship at Albion Park three weeks ago, with the feature going to fellow Sydney pacer Majestic Cruiser. 
Reinsman Jack Callaghan will resume driving Alta Orlando, having being partnered with Spirit Of St Louis throughout the Queensland Winter Carnival.
Together they will face the Group 3 Alf Phillis FFA.
Callaghan is sitting on 398 career wins and the 20-year-old will drive in seven of the eight races at Menangle’s card.
 
The iForm best bets for Saturday:

Handy displays in Queensland and appears to have an edge on his rivals.
