    MENANGLE MARVEL: Cash N Flow.

    ONE of Tabcorp Park Menangle’s most prolific winners will have his work cut out scoring his 27th win at the track tonight. Veteran pacer... Kiwis have ‘Cash’ in their sights

    ONE of Tabcorp Park Menangle’s most prolific winners will have his work cut out scoring his 27th win at the track tonight.

    Veteran pacer Cash N Flow has won 26 of his 40 wins at Menangle, but there’s a couple of new ‘kids’ in town that might give him a few headaches there tonight.

    While the 10-year-old gelding has an incredible record at the south-western Sydney track, he’s had a chance to see his latest rivals in action with two Kiwis arriving in town this week and taking up residence right under his nose at Belinda McCarthy’s Cobbitty stables.

    B D Joe and Alta Wiseguy are here for a tilt at the Miracle Mile in March.

    And their trainer Steve Telfer has brought them to Sydney early to get used to the Menangle style of racing and to see if they could measure up against Australia’s fastest pacers.

    Both will get their first look at Menangle tonight and Cash N Flow, along with the likes of Mach Shard, Whereyabinboppin, Jay OK and Bundoran will be there waiting for them.

    Leading New Zealand reinsman Tim Williams will jet in to drive B D Joe, while local ace Blake Fitzpatrick will partner Alta Wiseguy.

    “They’ve had New Zealand Cup campaigns and we freshened them up and decided we’d target the Miracle Mile,” said Telfer.

    “I wanted to get them there, settled in and used to the speed-orientated races there.

    “Neither of them have raced for about six weeks so we wanted them to have a good look at the track.

    “In two weeks we’ll probably take them to Newcastle and then maybe on to the Sprints and hopefully one, if not both, will win their way through to a start in the Miracle Mile.

    “I’m really thrilled with Alta Wiseguy; it was a good run in the Franklin Cup about a month ago, he’s trained on really well since then and seems bright.

    “He’s a real speed-orientated horse and probably in a bit better shape, at this stage.

    “B D Joe just has the all-round game and can do whatever is required in his races.

    “He’s always been that little bit better than Alta Wiseguy but I do think he’ll improve a lot with the run this week.”

    Telfer said his horses both had good gate speed.

    “It might be a bit different at Menangle – although they are used to heading forward when the starter lets them go.”
