Race 3: Best bet JOY ANNA just found the heavy track too much to handle when 7th last start in a tougher field, she was returning after a small let up and may have also needed the run, she can again lead form her good draw, she will take some catching around this track, go again. DAMA ZORRO built nicely to a tough last start win, she draws the ace which should enable her to get a softer trip here and that should make her hard to hold out, each way up in grade. ITS DESTINYS CHILD took a few runs to come to it this time in but has really hit her straps at her last 3 starts, she has worked her way through the grades winning her last couple, after the 2KG claim there is no reason she can’t win again, CHICANE has a great track record (4-2-1) which is important as Tauranga is a horses for courses circuit, she has been a little in or out this season but both her runs here have been very good, she also benefits from a 3KG claim, watch closely. For longer odds MEMORIES ONLY it would pay to overlook his Ellerslie run last start as he is not quite the same horse at Headquarters, his effort for 2nd on this track is a much better guide to his chances in this, if he can repeat that effort when he sat outside the speed then he can definitely make his presence felt.
