Michael Guerin's guide to punting at Addington tonight
Racing journalist Michael Guerin gives us an insight into his best tips for Addington tonight.
Best bet: Shan Noble (R5, No.6): Tough and fast three-year-old who stable believe is their better chance over second favourite Pace N Pride. Likely to roll forward and be very hard to beat.
The anchor: Highgrove (R6, No.5): Backing juvenile trotters can be a minefield but the big fella seems pretty safe and smashed most of these last start. If he trots all the way should win and boost your multi.
Be careful race: Chase Auckland (R3, No.6) returns tonight and is no doubt the best pacer at the meeting but has been off the scene with a near career-ending injury for over a year. As good as he is two fit, hard-running horses in South Coast Arden (3) and Fabrizio (4) might be too ready for him tonight.
Stand up time: Akuta (R11, No.6): The juvenile pacing pecking order hasn’t been worked out yet but Akuta looks well placed to suggest he is the top dog tonight. Two scratchings inside him bring him into barrier four and if he can work across to the lead will take a good horse to catch him.
