Race 5 No. 2 Reed Time
It’s not her box and she will be last out, but they will give us a price to see her go around this field and pounce late. Last start she was good behind Riley Has It and she can perform in a similar fashion here. Look for her to charge late at odds.
Race 6 No. 7 Archipelago Lad and No. 6 Easy Kuna
The 7 is in great form winning his last 2 here. Stepped beautifully last time but was hampered at the first turn before extending away. Goes close again. The 6 is very promising and has big middle and last sections. Good in a field and will look ominous at the end.
Race 8 No. 5 Theatre of War
Not a hard race to win which gives him a great chance on form alone. Just needs to step and offset the middle pin somewhat and he will be hard to stop. Will hit the line hard and a major threat with a clear run.
Race 9 No. 1 Sailing Shoes and No. 5 Rusty Boom Gate
The 1 is resuming from a let up and has trialled well leading into this. Has a good beginner who will stay up the track enough for him to take a fence run. Has some tricks but if he concentrates he will go close. The 5 can ping here, has a super record track and trip and will look to cross and go all the way. Both great shows.
Race 2 No. 8 Hill Top Jack and No. 2 Belle Violin
The 8 looks placed very well here. Shows dash, stick on and runs time. Set to get a cart over off the 7, he will be prominent early and strong throughout. The 2 is a promising youngster who will run well off the draw. Has good middle sections and getting better each start. Save there.
Race 3 No. 4 Galloping Speed
Thought his effort was super last week after walking out. Covered a whole lot of extra ground and kept finding the line. Will give another terrific sight at odds.
Race 4 No. 1 West On Finn
WA speedster who is drawn to win. Accelerates quickly and a different dog on the arm. Look for him to be setting the pace and they will need a 29.40 from back to beat him.
Race 5 No. 1 Extravagance and No. 8 Rio Bhodi
The Runway final and the wings get the nod here. The 1 is well over the odds and can shock these. Has gone 29.6 and has much more to offer and the draw will bring her right into the firing line. The 8 has a motor and if he gets into a striking spot up the back, will take a power of stopping. Runs the clock into the ground when set alight and will be charging through the field here.
Race 6 No. 7 Old News
The Easter Gift and the 7 is coming off a small let up but shouldn’t be $19. Has a stack of talent and can handle wide draws. Yet to miss a place here and will be worth a small spec EW.
Race 7 No. 8 Love This City and No. 1 Paua of Mindy
The Launching Pad consolation and again looking to the wings to run races here. The 1 is an enormous talent and while she may be better suited out wide, has undeniable ability and can step when she turns up. If she landed close, it’s right on. The 8 is only tiny but is all heart and runs some great races here. Has gone fast time previously and isn’t badly boxed. Will look to get into this early. EW both dogs.
Race 8 No. 2 Plaintiff, No. 4 Fearless Rory and No. 8 Here Comes Pie
The 2022 Launching Pad final and a wonderful field of youngsters lining up with chances to every runner. At the current market, we should play a couple of runners here. The 2 to go fast and lead and be hard to catch. The 4 with a clear run will look dangerous and the 8 can do anything on his day. Win bet 2 and EW plays on 4 and 8.
Race 10 No. 7 Mystify Kick
Had a few chances but finally strikes a down grade in class and gets his chance to produce here. Better than these but can take his time getting wound up. Should have little trouble hitting the podium with a clear run. EW all day.
Race 12 No. 2 Well Grounded and No. 3 Arizona Eyes
A couple of old boys who strike the easiest race they have had in some time. The 2 will look to get moving early and he can be hard to get past. The 3 just goes through gears and will pass more the longer the race goes. Both good shows here.
Race 4 No. 2 Midnight Tracker and No. 7 Contour
The 2 blew it here a few starts back but looks set to get a good map and opportunity to break through. Will track up here and be strong. The 7 is so close to winning soon it’s not funny. Been super his few starts here since coming over and only needs luck off this draw to win. Backing both.
Race 6 No. 7 Weblec Star and No. 8 Weblec Mist
The kennel mates get the nod here in the Easter Cup final. The 7 has all sorts of talent. If she gets into this with a lap to go then she will take all sorts of holding out. The 8 was superb in her heat and will take a lot of improvement from that. Expect her to land closer this week. Both only have to offset these draws to be big shows.
Race 7 No. 8 Howling Hoss
He’s got his box. Will look to muster out wide here and has been performing admirably against the better sprinters recently. Runs his 30.5 and will be hard to stop if they leave him alone.
Race 8 No. 7 Classic Mclaren and No. 6 Show Me Bucks
The 7 is a monster show here. Well boxed and while his early speed may be lacking lately, has been racing far better company than this and he is a ridiculous quote here. Best bet to hit the podium and shouldn’t miss a place. The 6 is getting a save because his price is also wrong. Can run a race at the odds but the it’s all about the 7 here. EW forever and best bet at the price.
Race 11 No. 5 Lala Hibiscus and No. 1 Danyo’s Mercy
The 5 will look to step fast here and we are yet to see her get the arm solo at AP. She is a much better dog when she’s left alone. The 1 is under rated and can use the box to advantage here. Both dogs should be in the firing line throughout.
Race 12 No. 5 Under Study
A little surprised at the price here considering a few of these will be gone when they don’t lead outright. The 5 is one of the very few who can charge from back and she showed with her run last start that she only needs a look late. Huge quote to take us out at AP and should go close.Market Market
