Race 1:

Selections: (9) Hot N Fast, (5) Caroline Wozniacki, (8) Sunny Bill

Suggested bet: (9) Hot N Fast

Comments: (9) Hot N Fastbegan like a rocket at Cambridge and it plenty of work early to find a handy spot on the pegs, likes this longer distance, eachway claims.

(5) Caroline Wozniackihas been in super form of late, off the front she has to be respected.

(8) Sunny Billfinally found form last start, Blair Orange in the cart, big chance.

Ratings: 9/5/8/10/4/1


Race 2:

Selections: (1) Hunter Red, (8) Bonnie Boy, (5) Marrera, (7) Spritz

Suggested bet:

Comments:  (1) Hunter Redcould provide the value in this race from the ace barrier draw; latest runs have had merit, eachway in this wide open maiden field.

(8) Bonnie Boycaught the eye at Nelson with some handy runs, since then he’s had gear problems and not luck, can upset them at a big price.

(5) Marrerais in great form of late and drawn to head forward and look for the lead, tough to run down if he doesn’t have to do too much work.

(7) Spritzwas spotted hitting the long strongly fresh up, this race isn’t tough, tote watch but looks a winning chance.

Ratings: 1/8/5/7/4/2/9/10


Race 3:

Selections: (1) Toppatherock, (2) Delia May, (8) Viewfield Chaton, (6) Delightful Infusion

Suggested bet: (1) Toppatherock

Comments: (1) Toppatherockcomes up with the ace draw and it looks like she’ll receive a beautiful run in transit from there, eachway if she doesn’t end up buried on the pegs.

The form of (2) Delia Mayhas turned upside down lately; if she could find her form from a month ago then she can win this.

(8) Viewfield Chatondrawn to do no work on the pegs can sneak home along the markers to be a multiples player.

(6) Delightful Infusionwill be well supported due to the Orange/House driving and training team, drawn wide and no workouts or trials since she last races. Prepared to lay this one from the wide barrier first up.

Ratings: 1/2/8/6/3/9/10/5


Race 4:

Selections: (7) Mekong Princess, (2) Dauntless, (4) Fira

Suggested bet: (7) Mekong Princess

Comments:If the real (7) Mekong Princessshowed up here she’ll probably beat this field by 10 lengths, but the manners have been letting her down in the pass, prior runs on this track were solid, must be respected.

(2) Dauntless & (4) Firaare the quaddie must’s in this field, both are handy enough trotters with good form.

Ratings: 7/2/4/5/6/9/1


Race 5:

Selections: (1) Jack Bates, (10) Madiba

Suggested bet: (1) Jack Bates

Comments: (1) Jack Batesis having a great run with barrier draws, the ace draw again and in super form of late, this isn’t a tough field, hard to beat.

(10) Madibawas well supported in the junior driver’s race last start, had a gallop early and was pulled up. This is a step down in ground, leading chance.

Ratings: 1/10/12/8/5/9/6/7


Race 6:

Selections: (5) Atom Hanover, (9) Nova Time

Suggested bet: Quinella

Comments: (5) Atom Hanoverimproved his form line with a handy run at Cambridge last week, drawn to head forward and be tough to run down.

(9) Nova Timehas changed stables and will be well supported first up for Michael House, win chance.

Ratings: 5/9/4/1/2/10


Race 7:

Selections: (7) Trouble Giero, (9) November Guy, (5) The Prince

Suggested bet: (7) Trouble Giero – Eachway

Comments: (7) Trouble Gieroheads north from the handy Brent White stable, recent form is behind some really handy trotters, nothing of that quality here so should be tough to beat.

(9) November Guyis firing on all cylinders lately and is in super form, 30m back mark not a worry, eachway claims here.

(5) The Princeshould find this a tough easier then recent starts, can upset them.

Ratings: 7/9/5/2/1/6/8


Race 8:

Selections: (10) Hes Fast And Furious, (6) Sauchiehall, (1) Carbonado

Suggested bet: (10) Hes Fast And Furious

Comments: (10) Hes Fast And Furiouscaught the eye running on well last start, prior Blenheim form was really good behind some handy ones, eachway claims from the back row.

(6) Sauchiehallmust be respected first up in the care of Michael House, tote watch on this runner.

(1) Carbonadodraws the ace barrier with David Butcher in the cart, respect.

Ratings: 10/6/1/2/7/8/11


Race 9:

Selections: (2) Gotta Moment, (4) Balfast, (7) Ardent Lustre

Suggested bet: (2) Gotta Moment

Comments: (2) Gotta Momentcontinues to run handy races without winning, this looks like his best chance in a while.

(4) Balfastcaught the eye storming home in the amateur drivers race at Cambridge last start, this isn’t a tough field, can surprise.

(7) Ardent Lustredidn’t get much piece in front at Cambridge and was only just beaten by a handy stable mate, drawn wide but is a leading hope here.

Ratings: 2/4/7/5/8/9/10/1


Race 10:

Selections: (5) Max Phactor

Suggested bet: (5) Max Phactor

Comments: (5) Max Phactordrops out of the Auckland Cup and really he should be winning this, he’ll head forward and be tough to run down.

Ratings: 5/1/3/9/2/6/8
