Race 1: 5.59pm

Selections: (12) Angus Burga, (9) Phoebe Gem, (5) Canskyfly, (11) The Prince

Suggested bet: (12) Angus Burga - Eachway

Comments: (12) Angus Burga– has been right around the mark in recent runs and finds himself in a very winnable race. Freshened for this run – tough to beat.

(9) Phoebe Gem –produced a tough effort to pick up her third career victory two starts ago on this track, mile stand didn’t suit last time and this is more here go. Eachway player.

(5) Canskyfly –we got a good price when she went bang on debut and won easily by 1.4L – stepping up in grade here but no reason she can’t go on with it.

(11) The Prince– finished on strongly behind a smart winner at Cambridge, although he hasn’t had much success at Auckland his previous run here was solid enough and this looks easier. Must have in multiples.

Race 2: 6.25pm

Selections: (3) Divine Justice, (5) Macey Maguire, (7) Bounty Lady, (9) Machbrad

Suggested bet: (3) Divine Justice - Eachway

Comments:Put a line through the last start of (3) Divine Justice –where she sat parked outside the top class Major Trojan. Prior runs were strong when only beaten 1.4L behind the smart Chevron Supreme is good time. Freshened for this and she should be tough to beat.

 (5) Macey Maguire –continues to improve and she was only 0.8L away from her stable mate last start, draw should work out okay, exotics must.

(7) Bounty Lady– must be respected coming from the Barry Purdon barn with Zachary Butcher in the cart. Her fresh up run was a 0.4L 2 ndbehind Gibson Girl and she did it tough that day. No reason she couldn’t win this.

(9) Machbrad –has run into a couple of smart types of late, drawn is tricky but with luck he can be a player here.

Ratings: 3/5/7/9


Race 3: 6.54pm

Selections: (8) Red Castleton, (13) Majestic One, (12) Ash, (6) Sir Henry Castleton

Suggested bet: (8) Red Castleton - Place

Comments: (8) Red Castleton– nearly returned to the winners circle but just couldn’t pick up the leader when only finishing 0.3L away from the winner. 3200m seems like it will suit this guy and he’s from a leading trotting barn. Eachway value.

The back markers of (13) Majestic One & (12) Ash– have to be respected here on the back of some handy runs of late, handicap won’t be a problem over this maximum distance. Can win.

(6) Sir Henry Castleton– might not be suited by the 3200m distance here but his run last week was good over the 2700m and Alicia Harrison is back in the cart. Place.

Ratings: 8/13/12/6/4/10/9/11


Race 4: 7.24pm

Selections: (3) Eastanbull, (1) Red Atom, (4) Bettorstartdreaming, (10) Vinibaka

Suggested bet: Boxed Quinella

Comments: (3) Eastanbull– has kicked off his career in fine form, drawn well tonight and appears to have a top chance at cracking his maiden.

(1) Red Atom– is a trial winner out of the Steven Reid barn, drawn to get a nice trip in transit – eachway.

(4) Bettorstartdreaming –will be well supported in the market after his huge 2 ndbehind Major Trojan – handy draw and expected to head forward. Tough to beat and if the money comes on the tote then follow that.

(10) Vinibaka– should punch through from the second row into a good spot , barn and driver earn respect. Upset chance.

Ratings: 3/1/4/10/6/2/8/7


Race 5: 7.54pm

Selections: (1) Trojan Banner, (3) Make Way, (5) Recco Lover

Suggested bet: Boxed Quinella

Comments:It’s the Ray Green show in Race 5 here, with three leading chances all drawn well.

It’s tough to split (1) Trojan Banner, (3) Make Way, (5) Recco Lover – and usually you have to follow the money that will come. Trojan Banner has been recording some good times and David Butcher jumps in the cart so he’s probably my top pick of the three but a big tote watch on the other two runners.

Ratings: 1/3/5/7/6/11/4


Race 6: 8.20pm

Selections: (4) Mr Good And Evil, (9) Lemond, (10) Temporale, (8) The Almighty Johnson

Suggested bet: (4) Mr Good And Evil - Eachway

Comments: (4) Mr Good And Evil– has to bring his manners again tonight, off the front tape over the 2200m he’ll give the open class trotters something to chase if he is to step and lead. Only beaten 0.5L last start after a tough run. Worth a bet at eachway odds.

The top line trotters all start off big handicaps over the 2200m trip here. They’ve got the ability to win but their hopes really depend on what Mr Good And Evil does off the front. If he steps and runs they’ll struggle to run him down but if he gallops it through it wide open.

Exotic bets need runners (9) Lemond, (10) Temporale & (8) The Almighty Johnson – involved.

Ratings: 4/9/10/8/6/7/1/3


Race 7: 8.50pm

Selections: (4) Raptors Flight, (7) Jack’s Legend, (6) Northview Hustler, (9) No Doctor Needed

Suggested bet: (4) Raptors Flight – Place

Comments: (4) Raptors Flight –never really got a fair crack at them when in a fresh state a fortnight ago, off the front tape with that run under his belt you’d expect big improvement. Place price is worth a bet.

(7) Jack’s Legend –blew the start last week, he’ll need to be a lot better here and his class will have him at a short price again. Tough to beat if he steps.

(6) Northview Hustler– stepped and ran them last start in super time over the 2200m distance. 2700m suits but he needs to step in front of his main dangers tonight. Can win again.

(9) No Doctor Needed– has to give some quality types 10m tonight – his sectionals were super last start but it looks like a case of same again here, he’ll likely settle last and be sighted storming home late in the piece.

Ratings: 4/7/6/9/8/5/2


Race 8: 9.20pm

Selections: (6) Chevron Supreme, (2) Benson Buys

Suggested bet: Quinella

Comments: (6) Chevron Supreme –backed up the strong support when a dominate winner in super time here a month ago – up in grade but she’ll handle it. Tough to beat.

(2) Benson Buys –picked up a smart penalty free win last week and draws well for tonight’s assignment, favourite will be tough to beat but quinella must for this guy.

Ratings: 6/2/1/3/7/4/8


Race 9: 9.50pm

Selections: (1) Gottabearose, (4) Eyesdown And Looking, (9) Bubble Gum, (12) Rory Mcllroy

Suggested bet: (1) Gottabearose - Win

Comments: (1) Gottabearose– did it tough last start and was only 3.3L from a couple of handy types, drops in class here and looks mighty tough to beat from the ace barrier.

(4) Eyesdown And Looking –hasn’t been far away in recent starts – value place bet.

(9) Bubble Gum– has been recording good times in the run home, drawn to get a dream trip. Can win.

(12) Rory Mcllroy– is a handy enough type who will be better for the two runs under his belt. Improvement expect, can upset them.

Ratings: 1/4/9/12/13/5/14


Race 10: 10.16pm

Selections: (11) Saint Michel, (6) Just Ricky, (10) Jamieson Shard, (7) Adelle

Suggested bet: (11) Saint Michel - Eachway

Comments: (11) Saint Michel– is a four race winner who looks to have been chucked into this race. 25M handicap with maidens off the front shouldn’t worry him.  Tough to beat.

(6) Just Ricky– did well on debut when only 1L behind a handy type, off the front with similar manners he’ll give them something to chase.

(10) Jamieson Shard –is a converted pacer who has been trialing nicely although in small fields at the Cambridge trials. This is a big step up but willing to have him in multiples.

(7) Adelle– comes from a handy trotting stable and was good enough to race in the jewels at two. Can win in a fresh state.
