Race 3 No. 7 Theatre of War and No. 8 Tap Out Gough
If this was 405m or even 490m, the 7 would be no betting and long odds on. Never the less, he has eons on these in class and should still muster up out wide here and put these away. Been racing far superior dogs to this. Should he make an error, the 8 is a smokie who can figure against these. Can be tardy early but any luck will see him figure. Save there.
Race 5 No. 1 Jolie Export
Probably not totally suited to box 1 but he has good muster and with the dog in box 2 staying a straight to slightly wide line, he will get his chance to punch up here before the all important first turn. Can finish off his races well from there and will be a great EW contender.
Race 6 No. 1 Rapido Modelo
Boxed to shake the life out of this. More adept over 490m but has no issues transferring that form to this shorter trip as evidenced by her last start win from box 3. Has a couple of very slow beginners outside her and gets very chance to deal out back to back wins.
Race 8 No. 7 Owl Finn and No. 5 Extremely Smooth
Couple at odds here. The 7 has a horrendous record off outside boxes but if he’s ever going to get over, this will be his chance at a price. He’s better than his form suggests and has run right up to some good dogs in the past. The 5 will be the outsider but he’s far from out of this. A race full of leaders, he will hop over to the fence early and smoke the pipe for a first turn run. Can sustain a run home and spec him EW as well.
Race 9 No. 8 Wise Merino and No. 5 Trending Quarter
Another couple who can upset the favoured runners. The 8 goes better than most think and while his early split is a concern, he can reel off some good middle and late sections and any luck into the back will see him threaten. The 5 is close and he is going ok at the moment. Has run some surprising races recently and will keep coming over this trip and give a real sight if he finds the fence quickly.
Race 4 No. 1 Redevelop and No. 6 Safe Drop
Final from last weeks heats. The 1 will drive up quickly here and if holds the arm will take a stack to get past. Silly price about him. The 6 wins if he misses the 5 at the start. She takes a right step but if he can avoid that, he will show why he is one of the more under rated straight trackers. Will descend on these with any air at all. Both great shows.
Race 9 No. 4 Mariah Queen
She went well against a dog last week who would be $1.50 in this. Big drop in class and can give this fav a stack to think about. Really shouldn’t miss top 2 here and will look the winner at some stage.
Race 11 No. 8 Impress Raja
Looked lost last week when she wandered around up the outside fence and will improve a mountain today. Has a good turn of foot after the start and will accelerate quickly here to put herself into a winning spot. Very very hard to catch today.Market Market
