Race 3 – No.3 Rainbow Light – Next Best
Last start was very good with the gear off and blinkers on ridden positively. Expecting the same here from a nice barrier in quite a narrow Class 4. Worth an each-way ticket.
Race 4 – No.1 Happy Day
Had plenty of excuses last start and the ground was one of them. He has since trialled well with Moreira on. Drawn ideally to be able to sit more forward if they want to whilst holding the rail. Big chance to hit back to where he got to two starts back.
Race 6 – No.3 Beauty Spirit
Two back he didn’t love the wet going but still ran a massive second behind rival Nicolson Returns, who he meets at least 4kg better off. Last start they led by default and just didn’t hang on. Drawn well to stalk the lead and is worth an each-way bet.
Race 7 – No.3 Reve Parisien – Best Bet / No.5 Red Titan
Reve Parisien is the best bet on the card was brilliant behind Brilliant Way LS, gets Purton on and will likely stride across with ease from the wide gate. I expect him to be hard to beat. Red Titan was a blackbooker who has since trialled well. Well worth a saver bet with Moreira on.
Race 8 – No.12 Seven Heavens
Hot little sprint race this. His first-up run was massive behind Power Koepp, despite being held up between the 300m-200m, still managed the ninth QL200m of meeting. Drops 1.5kg, Currie aboard. Looks a brilliant each-way bet at silly odds.
Race 10 – No.10 Navas Two
Finally drawn a good gate despite him being F/Up after 56 days off. He is at his ideal distance and maps in a perfect spot just off the leaders. He has run well in the past behind some talented horses and I expect today to be no different.
