Race 2 No. 3 Arcanine and No. 7 Oysters
The 3 needs to get back to his best but can do so here. Has been costly at the start his last 2 but gets a better early map here and can atone. The 7 still retains her zest for racing and can surprise. Has early pace and sticks on. Will be a price.
Race 5 No. 8 Garrio and No. 1 Mild Marcus
The 8 will look to muster here in a race full of early-splitters. Smokes the pipe out wide before chiming in with his usual strong run home over this trip. Racing well. The 1 has a touch of class about him and will also slide along the fence probing for runs. Has an enigmatic type outside him who can run cover and he will get his chance late. Both solid hopes here.
Race 6 No. 2 Pennywise and No. 4 Madison Keys
Last chance for the 2 after a couple of steady efforts. He’s better than that and has the box to bounce back to some form here. Needs to show more early pace which he can do. The 4 can sneak under the radar here and the kennel is firing presently. Her run was without luck last start yet she ran home well not beaten far. Don’t dismiss.
Race 7 No. 3 Wood Fire and No. 6 Burning Passion
Good race with several hopes. The 3 was making a fast run last week when the top turn approached too quickly and he was chopped out when about to find the front. Gets another chance here. The 6 is racing well and she made good ground last start which isn’t really her go as she is a bitch who likes to get out and rolling quickly on the arm. Can offset the box and figure here.
Race 8 No. 6 Zulu Gladiator and No. 1 Herman Munster
The 6 just needs to avoid the early speed battle here to navigate a path and launch on these. One of the few who can strongly run this trip right out in good time. The 1 is another who will look to move into this late when a few are stopping. His run had merit last time and can smoke the pipe here and be solid in the run home to figure.
Race 9 No. 8 Mitigation
Looking for him to produce his best tonight. Looks better than these and if his box manners arrive, can muster up and take control of this quickly. Winnable race and this looks his chance to improve on his 6.65 early section and deliver the knockout blow in time these shouldn’t be able to match. Best bet.
Race 11 No. 3 Rapido Storm and No. 7 Wind Burn Flash
The 3 was super last week. Made huge ground on promising dogs and looks set to go close here. Racing well. The 7 is the smokie and don’t be surprised if she rushes up out wide and puts herself in the frame. Both can hit the podium here.
Race 7 No. 6 Major China and No. 1 Testarossa Boy
The 6 was excellent behind Fantastic Faith last start here. Victorian visitor who looks set to break through. The 1 will enjoy straight racing and the box and look for him to show his dash and be hard to catch. Has a class edge on this field and only has to handle the straight to win.
Race 8 No. 1 Winners Win and No. 4 Toby West
The Murray Bridge Straight Track cup and we have 8 missiles to do battle here. We will stick with the same two we backed in their heat. The 1 was outstanding. Descended on them with a paralysing last section in the heat that had to be seen to be believed. That’s the 2nd time he’s done that and clearly loves the straight. Wins with a clear run. He beat the 4 by a short margin who ran the race of his life and can do so again. Was in the worse part of the track and just kept on coming. Absurd quote today about a dog who is going to get a gun map with the 5 going right at box rise and the 3 left and risky early. Can shock these out of the cup!! Backing the 1 and the 4 EW at an obscene price.
Race 9 No. 4 Maybe Wrong and No. 7 Arch Of Daisy’s
Both dogs can knock this fav over. Especially the 4. Super run last time he was here and only has to reproduce to hit top 2. The 7 was also very good last time she was here and went fast time. They will give this fav plenty to run down. 4 EW and save on 7 win.
Race 10 No. 7 Lanis Magic
She’s as enigmatic as they come and can either win or run last. Depends which one turns up but the price is not indicative of her ability and she should get a small spec at the big odds. Can do anything when she wants to. Treat carefully as she can also do very little when she wants as well. First go here and an EW spec only.
Race 12 No. 2 Married Twice
Gets her chance today and should pounce out be hard to catch. Consistent and never runs a bad race here. Back to 300m a huge plus and looks the one after her last couple of efforts here.Market Market
