(6) Caroline Wozniacki & (8) Awa Cathrine both put in solid runs on the first day, must have in multiples again.

Race 2:

Selections: (5) Toro Delago, (6) Bill Haley

Suggested bet:  Quinella

Comments: Tough to see anything outside of (5) Toro Delago or (6) Bill Haley winning this race, both will be well supported after handy runs on the first day, only need the two in the first leg of your quaddie ticket today.

Race 3:

Selections: (1) Marrera, (4) For Tony, (7) Waikari Fire, (9) Red River Dash

Suggested bet: (1) Marrera - Eachway

Comments: (1) Marrera draws well here after a nice run on the first day, will get every chance to pick up a maiden victory here.

(4) For Tony did well to finish as close as he did on the first day after a gallop, drawn well and will play a part with manners.

(7) Waikari Fire was a touch unlucky on the first day, drawn wide here but can win with a trip.

(9) Red River Dash is drawn to get a lovely trip in transit, place claims here.

Ratings: 1/4/7/9/8/11/3/6


Race 4:

Selections: (2) Paul’s Verdict, (1) Jamieson Shard, (8) Major Classic, (11) Pay Me Visa

Suggested bet: Boxed Quinella

Comments: (2) Paul’s Verdict picked up a well deserved victory on the first day, up in grade but drawn well and a repeat performance would take him close.

(1) Jamieson Shard did well on the first day and isn’t far off picking up another win, gets his best draw in a while to work from.

(8) Major Classic sit sprinter who did well in the Cup on the first day, drawn wide so will get back and be charging home again.

I’m prepared to give (11) Pay Me Visa one more chance after putting in a below par performance on Friday, draw to do no work and with improvement he could upset them.

Race 5:

Selections: (4) Clifden Clowers, (6) Jasper Seven, (10) November Guy

Suggested bet: (4) Clifden Clowers - Eachway

Comments: (4) Clifden Clowers won well on the first day with his great manners, he’ll step here and be in the leading pack which will give him his chance to double up here.

(6) Jasper Seven looked the winner at the bend before putting in a gallop, that’s the concern again today because if he was to trot the trip he’d be hard to beat.

(10) November Guy did well off his mark on the first day, similar expected here.

Ratings: 4/6/10/7/8/9/3/5


Race 6:

Selections: (2) Sheeza Sport, (11) Paddington Central, (3) Jay FM, (1) Grey Skies

Suggested bet: Trifecta

Comments: Wide open field dominated by the Canterbury raiders - (2) Sheeza Sport, (11) Paddington Central & (3) Jay FM. They all went well on the first day, Jay FM gets a far better draw today so expect him to roll forward and could be tough to run down.

(1) Grey Skies has drawn to do no work from the draw, claims here.

Ratings: 2/11/3/1/14/6/4/7


Race 7:

Selections: (2) Classie American, (7) Black Chevron

Suggested bet: (2) Classie American - Eachway

Comments: Looks a two horse war here between (2) Classie American & (7) Black Chevron. They have both been in great form lately and it’s tough to see anything outside of these two winning.

Ratings: 2/7/9/4/5/10/11


Race 8:

Selections: (1) He’s Fast And Furious, (11) Lis Rulz, (6) Possente Cavallo

Suggested bet: (1) He’s Fast And Furious

Comments: (1) He’s Fast And Furious put in some cracking runs at Blenheim, draw didn’t help him on the first day but drawn the ace here he’ll be almighty tough to beat.

(11) Lis Rulz is in career best form recently, draw should work out okay here, eachway claims.

(6) Possente Cavallo didn’t get much luck on the first day, drawn wider here doesn’t help. Place bet.

Ratings: 1/11/6/10/5/2/8/12





Race 9:

Selections: (5) Xtra Time, (4) Sunny Bill, (11) Brooks Belle, (12) Majestic Stride

Suggested bet: (5) Xtra Time - place

Comments: Wide open trot field and they all have question marks around their manners. I’ve found four must have’s for the quaddie but outside of these you might have to put the names in a hat to find other runners. (5) Xtra Time, (4) Sunny Bill, (11) Brooks Belle, (12) Majestic Stride

Ratings: 5/4/11/12/Field


Race 10:

Selections: (2) Bobby M, (5) Jack Bates, (4) Itsokbeingbetter, (12) The Hurricane

Suggested bet: (2) Bobby M - Place

Comments: (2) Bobby M did well from a bad draw on the first day, drawn well and could get a dream run here.

(5) Jack Bates nearly provided a decent return for us on the first day, drawn out wide here but in form and can win.

(4) Itsokbeingbetter is in good form of late without winning; this is a low rating race and gets the chance to pick up another win here.

(12) The Hurricane was seen storming home on the first day for third, similar result and run here.
