Race 4

BORN A WARRIOR has consistent formlines to his name and had nothing go his way when finishing third last time out over six furlongs, three lengths behind the winner. He overraced in the early and middle stages and then came the widest into the home straight, before hanging over the latter stages. He jumps from gate seven and looks to be the one to side with here. EXCELTIC is seldom far off the action and hit the front at the 200M mark last time out before being run out of it close to home to end up in third place over seven furlongs, just under a half length behind the winner, this despite coming three wide into the straight. He has cracked pole position and will have 2kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. WHAT COULD BE has shown marked improvement in his last two runs and came the widest of them all into the straight, but then stayed on well to finish fourth last time out over six furlongs, just over a length back from the victor. He has a handy draw two and will also have 2kgs removed from his allocated weight courtesy of his claiming apprentice to aid his cause.

Race 5

Today’s value bet, MAJOR ARTIE is looking to complete his hat-trick here after winning his last two starts over a mile and the latest over 1550M by a head. He jumped awkwardly that day but chased down the leader in the straight, suggesting that the extra ground that is on offer today will be to his liking. He will have to negotiate gate ten, but he should be right up there when they hit the line. Two 4yr old fillies are taken to follow the top choice home, with the slight preference going to FILL OF FUN who has finished close up in her last two outings over nine furlongs, the latest when a half length adrift of the winner. Her jockey put up 1kg overweight that day, so she should have finished closer to the winner than she eventually did. She steps up in distance, but did win over ten furlongs three runs back, so this should not be an issue. SELICA’S last three outings have been over a mile, where she finished third in her last start, just under a length back from the victor. She is drawn the widest of them in in gate fourteen, but she should be doing her best work late.

Race 6

NAJMAH is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys, but she has only had the two runs to date, winning them both, over five furlongs on debut and then the latest over 1100M by two lengths. She returns from a 15 week rest, but did finish second on her only barrier trial. She has pulled pole position and is made the best bet on the day’s program. HE’S A HOTSHOT followed up his penultimate run victory over six furlongs with a fourth spot finish next time out over the same trip, one and a half lengths off the winner, despite having been cut into. The form of that race has stood up well and from draw two, he could be the biggest threat to the top pick. ALL CYLINDERS has consistent formlines to his credit and was only collared in the shadow of the post when a short-head back from the winner last time out over five furlongs. The form of that race has been franked and although he has his first run since a lengthy 33 week break, he did finish second in his only barrier trial to showcase his well-being. He will have to overcome a wide draw twelve, but he should use his early gate speed to move across without expending too much energy.

Race 7

Two 4yr old fillies could fight out the finish to this race and complete the exacta in a field that has been reduced to nine runners with the three late scratchings. STRANGE CHARM missed out on her hat-trick when slightly disappointing in finish nineth in her last outing over a mile, 3.6L behind the winner. She did however shift out wide over the latter stages of that contest and the form of the race has been franked. She starts from a wideish gate nine, but will be hoping to bounce back to her previous form. FOXBOROUGH on the other had has pulled pole position. She raced keenly before ending up in third place last time out over this c&d, just under a half length behind the winner. She is getting closer to the winner in her last three starts and should make her presence felt in this line-up. ABOVE AND BEYOND last three runs have been over 1500M and he came three wide into the home straight before finishing second last time out, just a head back from the winner. He did win three runs back and will get 2kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. He jumps from gate seven and should keep the top two fillies honest.
