Race 4.

A 3yr and a 4yr old filly could fight out the finish to this race and complete the exacta, but the day’s best bet, CLASSIC TRAIN is taken to lead the pack home. She has only had the two runs to date, winning her debut outing over 1300M by a short-head and then finishing third next time out over this distance, just over a half length behind the winner. She would no doubt have come on with the run under her belt and from draw five, she could find herself back in the winner’s box. TODWICK showed marked improvement to win her maiden race last start over the mile by 3.3L. She will have to negotiate the widest draw of them all in gate nine and does take on stronger here, but if she is able to reproduce that last effort, she could emerge as the biggest danger to the top choice. CHIEF KIDDER is seldom far off the action and although finishing sixth last time out over 1300m, he was just over three lengths back from the winner. the form of that race has stood up well and from his kinder draw six and should keep the fillies honest.

Race 5.

WAR DECK followed up his penultimate run victory over a mile with a second place finish over the same trip, just a short-head behind the winner. He attracted plenty of betting support that day and had a tussle with the eventual winner all the way down the straight. His objection against the victor was overruled in the boardroom. The drop in trip should not be an issue as he finished third over this distance three runs back, beaten by just a neck. He jumps from draw six and could be the one that they all have to beat. ISLAND BAY BOY won a head when making his debut over six furlongs and then finished fifth next time out over the same distance, five lengths adrift of the winner when returning from a 14 week rest. He stayed on well that day and the form of the race has been franked. From his handy draw two, he should be right up there when they hit the line. Although ALL IN RHYTHM is recorded as finishing ninth in his latest outing over this c&d, he was just over four lengths back from the winner, this despite shifting outwards over the closing stages of the race. He has pulled gate four and should be included in all bets.

Race 6.

Two 3yr old fillies could dominate the finish to this contest and secure the exacta. NOT A CHOICE has only had the three runs to date, finishing fifth in her last two starts over this seven furlong journey, this after finishing second on debut over 1250M. She tried to go from jump to wire last time out and seems likely to enjoy the drop in distance of today’s race. Given her style of racing, she should use her early gate speed to move across from gate nine without expending too much energy and may prove difficult to reel in over the latter stages. As such, she is made the value bet on the program. BELLE ESPOIR has finished second twice and third once in her first three outings, the latest over 1300M when ending up three lengths off the winner. She was making good late progress that day and from gate six, she is likely to turn in another honest performance. UGLY NICOS is drawn one inside the latter and has only had two runs so far, finishing sixth over six furlongs first time out and then staying on well to end up in third spot in his last start over seven furlongs, three lengths adrift from the victor. He would have learnt from the further experience and should be involved in the finish.

Race 7.

At first glance STONEHENGE appears to have been a tad disappointing when finishing third last time out over a mile, 4.8L behind the winner, but he only saw daylight at the 250M mark that day and then finished well over the closing stages. He was also reported to have been cut into, so perhaps the effort can be overlooked. He was returning from a 22 week break that day and the form of that race has been franked. He has pulled gate three and could be the one that they all have to beat. MR SEVERINO is drawn one inside the former and has only had the two outings to date. He was bumped at the 200M pole when finishing second on debut over 1300m and then raced green next time out when ending up in sixth place over the same trip, nearly four lengths behind the winner. He should have come on further and looks to be the immediate threat to the top pick. MOREMI is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys, but she had to be held up early before finishing up in sixth spot last time out over 1500M, seven lengths behind the winner. She was returning from a 13 week absence that day and notwithstanding her draw eight, she should be right up there in the firing line.
