Race 3:

Selections: (3) Grace O’Malley, (7) Svelt, (15) Rydgemont Milly, (4) Scarlett Lane

Suggested bet:

Comments: (3) Grace O’Malley can begin quickly here and put herself into a leading role, in this field she could be tough to run down.

(7) Svelt resumes here and has been going along nicely at the workouts, talented, can win.

(15) Rydgemont Milly produced her best effort for a while last start, she’s a talented trotter and with another run like that she’ll be there at the finish.

(4) Scarlett Lane can begin fast and has good manners, will be in a handy spot so place claims in this.

Ratings: 1/7/15/4/14/9/2/1/8


Race 4:

Selections: (1) Chitura

Suggested bet: (1) Chitura

Comments: (1) Chitura will be at short odds after impressing at the trials to run home in 55.5. Drawn well so should be winning this.

Ratings: 1/9/3/6/10/14/15/12/4


Race 5:

Selections: (3) War Admiral, (8) Jeddy R Ya Ready

Suggested bet: (8) Jeddy R Ya Ready - Place

Comments: If you’re brave enough to put your faith in (3) War Admiral then he should really be too good for this field, manners have let him down of late but when he trots the trip he’s pretty good.

(8) Jeddy R Ya Ready comes out of a good barn and looks  a good place bet here.



Race 6:

Selections: (5) L J’s Jet, (2) Tact Maggie, (6) Mister Mighty, (14) Be Holme By Three

Suggested bet: (5) L J’s Jet

Comments: (5) L J’s Jet has drawn well here and a good performer at the recent workouts, at nice eachway value here for a horse that is set to break maidens in his next few starts.

(2) Tact Maggie put up a handy debut effort and gets the draw to work with here, if she can get an easy trip in transit she’ll be tough to beat.

(6) Mister Mighty heads south after a fair debut on a leader bias track, bit of money was on, multiples must.

(14) Be Holme By Three has drawn tricky but going the times at the workouts just needs to bring that form to the races and he’ll be a player here.

Ratings: 5/2/6/14/15/10/11


Race 7:

Selections: (5) Loma Jaccka, (4) Raksbet, (10) Indiana Dreaming, (11) Jody Direen

Suggested bet: Quinella                                  

Comments: (5) Loma Jaccka comes out of a handy form race behind a nice one in Henry Hubert, this is easier and has drawn well over the short course, can roll forward and play a part.

(4) Raksbet has Blair Orange in the sulky and a nice barrier draw, there is only one place they are going and that is forward to look for the top, tough to run down if she doesn’t have to do too much work to get there.

(10) Indiana Dreaming was heavily supported in a fresh state, had to cover too much ground, fitness improving, eachway.

(11) Jody Direen is a handy pacer who will have improved with the first up run, Dexter Dunn in the sulky is a bonus, yes.

Ratings: 5/4/10/11/3/13/9/7/6


Race 8:

Selections: (2) Lawrence, (1) Ossessione, (5) Southbound Train, (7) Young Conqueror, (12) Especial, (13) Shezacullengirl

Suggested bet: Boxed Quinella/Trifecta

Comments: Wide open field this, six runners mentioned below who are must have’s in your quaddies, a boxed quinella and trifecta around these numbers should go close.

(2) Lawrence, (1) Ossessione, (5) Southbound Train, (7) Young Conqueror, (12) Especial, (13) Shezacullengirl

Ratings: 2/1/12/13/7/5/9/3


Race 9:

Selections: (4) Mr Kiwi, (2) Shelby Bromac, (5) Kiwi On Show, (14) Vin Scully

Suggested bet: (4) Mr Kiwi

Comments: (4) Mr Kiwi made an impression with a handy debut win, spelled after that and has return in good nick at the workouts, eachway claims.

(2) Shelby Bromac is consistent as they come without winning, drawn well here, another forward showing expected.

(5) Kiwi On Show has the gate speed to lead here, that will give her a huge chance.

(14) Vin Scully was out classed last start by a good one, kept fighting to finish 2nd, no Henry Hubert’s here, eachway.

Ratings: 4/2/5/14/10/16/6/11


Race 10:

Selections: (4) Nightmarch, (1) John Coltrane, (3) Repartee

Suggested bet: (4) Nightmarch

Comments: (4) Nightmarch has to be close to a win, continues to find one better so he’s a solid place chance but we have the fingers crossed for connections that he can finally pick up a photo.

(1) John Coltrane has been well supported in recent starts, best draw in a while, eachway claims.

(3) Repartee put in a good enough run last start to point to a forward showing here, eachway bet.
