A mixture of flat and jumps racing, day two of the annual Warrnambool Carnival features the Listed Wangoon Handicap (1200m).

City class performer Tried and Tired  is the favourite for the $150,000 feature. Trained by Leon and Troy Corstens at Kyneton, the five-year-old is having his second run this campaign after finishing fourth over 1100m at Caulfield behind Politeness in mid-April. The son of Niello always improves second up at which he's won two of his three goes. He's also won three of five at the distance and has an impressive overall record; 18: 7-3-1 for $306,735 in prize money.

A first up winner in restricted grade on soft ground at Flemington, Mr Utopia is the danger and nowhere near the $20 he was at headquarters two weeks ago. Formerly from Western Australia, the five-year-old is now trained by Robert Smerdon at Caulfield. He's won nine of 21 and was competitive in a couple of Group 3s in Perth late last year before heading east.

If Peter Moody's Sino Eagle can take the step from fillies and mares racing to an Open Handicap, she's right in the mix.

The race before is the time-honoured Galleywood Hurdle (3200m). Experienced jumpers Fieldmaster and Urban Explorer  face a challenge from rising stars Beer Garden and Zuhayr .
