Chris Nelson’s Preview

RACE 6 No. 5 Bithard

Sunshine Coast trained galloper from the Darryl Hansen stable who according to connections didn’t appreciate the addition of blinkers when finishing a long last at Doomben last start. A home track winner followed by a placing here suggest there’s plenty to back up those excuses put forward. The blinkers are now off and jockey Jeff Lloyd stays on, a sharp improvement is very much on the cards. Good each-way value.

RACE 7 No. 11 Stella Ombra

Kelly Schweida trained sprinter who although missing the place last start at Doomben his run was far better than it appears on paper. Settling a long way back in the field he picked up ground before the home turn and continued to do so in the straight however the race was run at a very solid pace throughout making his task to pick up the leaders too tough. Longer run home in his favour tomorrow.

RACE 8 No. 3 Privlaka

Rob Heathcote trained gelding who has returned in good order this campaign having won fresh before striking a chequered run down the straight at Doomben last time out winding up just over a length from the winner Pepperano who is in career best form. 1400m tomorrow looks ideal as he jumped 350m between those runs which adds further merit to the latest performance, very hard to beat.
