Race 6 No. 3 Son Of Hecton and No. 1 Your Mate
The 3 for Graham Crudeli, is coming off a let up and has had a few BTB and PTP trials and gone super. This race isn’t hard and he raced well against better dogs last prep. The 1 and kennel mate, is the obvious danger. If he gets away in the arm then he will take some stopping. Best go 3 and save on the 1.
Race 7 No. 5 Crackerjack Pack and No. 2 Suntory Lass
Price disintegrated instantly this morning. Went up unbelievable silly odds. He can step here and dash straight to the front then shouldn’t be caught. Can even go well if he doesn’t lead as long as he’s close. EW bird in this!! Save on the 2 who is unbeaten track and trip and can muster up the inside to be prominent at good odds.
Race 8 No. 2 My Dad’s Augie and No. 3 Volute
Interesting race. The 2 will improve a minute and has stack of talent. Ran off the first turn last week but should be better schooled here off that. Has great fractions when he is given room. The 3 is the one to watch. When she’s on, she can run away with a race like this. Shows early burn and sticks on.
Race 10 No. 4 Production and No. 8 Zipping Jade
Giving the kennel mates a super chance here. Old mate in 4 is doing enough to keep him around on this page and finally gets his chance to find the top early. That should be over if he does. The 8 was stiff not to cross last week. She would have won had she kept her position and can handle these outside draws. Both will go well here in sub 22.
Race 5 No. 4 Weblec Storm and No. 7 Prussian Spirit
The 4 is 3rd up from a spell and 3rd run for new trainer. His formline was quite strong prior to spell and getting back to anywhere near that will see him hard to beat at EW odds. The 7 goes well here and ignore her last start when she was put in an impossible race and distance. She will look ominous if she hasn’t been flattened by that last run. Keen 4 and save 7.
Race 11 No. 4 Blue Chandelier and No. 2 Kakariki
We are backing up on the 4 again for the 3rd time in a row and this is her chance to find the front. Firmed since she was thrown out early this morning so we don’t want to take much shorter than her current quote of $2.80 on Tabtouch. Save on the 2. Has ability but usually ruins it with a poor early section. Might not get buried here and if she lobbed close off this indie draw, would even get over the 4 late. Main go 4 and save EW 2.Market Market
