Race 1

1 Donegal Davy Boyd: Really stretched out nicely and hit the line with some venom fresh up from new quarters last week. Good draw and right in it here.

4 Deja Blue: Looked very unlucky last time out. Building up a nice record and looks primed to get a slice of the action here.

7 Duke Of Dundee: Nearly stole it last time out. Headed in the right direction and should get a maiden win soon.

2 Already Gone: Another brave effort last time out at Rangiora. On speed horse with a good draw and should have a role to play in this.

Selections: 1-4-7-2

 

Race 2

10 Go Kiwi: Very good run after sitting parked last week only to be collared by a smart one late. Nice horse headed places and can win this.

5 Taroona Bromac: Dazzling return to racing to win last week. Will only be better for that run and can get another here with the right luck.

4 Shadow Minister: Mobile helped the chances big time last week and he was very good in third. Can build on that from a handy marble here.

8 Franco Texas: Not far away last week. Gate speed horse who should land handy to the speed and with any luck won’t be too far away.

Selections: 10-5-4-8

 

Race 3

5 Hurricane Banner: Unlucky last week at Forbury. Runs straight and he wins. Can build on that form here though and give this a good shake.

9 The Croupier: Dominated them last time out. Cops a wide draw here which is a worry but is one of the better horses in the race so should stand up.

7 Tartan Robyn: Hit the line well for second last week. Nice horse who is getting better and better. Should have a part to play again tonight .

4 Unloaded: Can’t fault the form and was handy here last week too. No star but a genuine honest performer who won’t be far away again.

Selections: 5-9-7-4

 

Race 4

11 Fynn Frost: Did it really tough last time out but didn’t throw it in with a solid sixth. Bit more luck here and should be winning tonight.

6 Jazelle: Didn’t back up at Rangiora but very good here a couple of days earlier. Should get on the speed and with the right trip can win.

7 Myboylolliepop: In good nick and was unlucky seven days ago. Capable of making his own luck in this race though and won’t be far away .

4 Immortal Change: Nice run last week. In and out at times but best is pretty handy. Good draw here and should have something to say.

Selections: 11-6-7-4

 

Race 5

14 Jerry Garcia: Continues to race well. Tough and robust and can bully his way to victory tonight with any luck in the running.

8 Ardee Trouble: Clearly stronger this time in and was effortless at Forbury. Can hold the form and go close again here tonight.

4 Majestic Sunset: Backed up a good maiden win with a strong effort here last week for third. Talented trotter who isn’t the worst chance here.

3 Some Time: Finally got it all together and delivered a telling blow last time out to share the win last time out. Good enough to go close again.

Selections: 14-8-4-3

 

Race 6

5 Glenthorne: Form on the board behind some really nice types and this does look a little easier. Will get on the speed and look to dominate. Should win.

8 Montefalco: Patiently handled type with plenty of ability. Small and even field here suits and should be right in the middle of the action.

3 Uptown Lady: Not far away again last week. Might land in a slightly better spot here and from there has an each way hope.

9 Mini Mine Yet: No hope last week and it’s going to be hard from the draw here but does have more upside than most. Has to be a chance.

Selections: 5-8-3-9

 

Race 7

8 Splash Cola: In great form at the moment and with a swift beginning he can land on or near the speed and they might not catch him tonight. Looks a big hope.

7 Medusa: Loved the run last week, was big and brave. She’s got plenty left in store for her and can get a big slice of the action here tonight.

3 Madeleine Stowe: Talented trotter with good form on the board. Front line draw here and the right man in the bike says that we need to paying attention.

6 Clifden Clowers: Slightly down on form lately but does possess a potent final sprint when saved up for one run at them. That should be the tactic here.

Selections: 8-7-3-6

 

Race 8

9 A Bettor Act: Been stunning since joining the Kerr stable and big win last time out. Headed for better things and has to be a winning hope here.

7 Mikey Maguire: Robust pacer who won’t shirk any kind of challenge. Brave again last week and won’t mind putting them to the sword here again.

5 Storm Prince: A little down on his best lately, but is talented. Orange sticks with the ship which is a really good sign. We should probably follow his lead.

3 Doitson: Hard to find fault in any of the runs since returning from a spell. Genuine pacer who will give a good account of himself once again here.

Selections: 9-7-5-3

 

Race 9

3 Ragnarr: Been very good in two runs back from a spell and lobs a handy draw here. On the speed and out of trouble he looks a big winning hope.

9 Silk: Two very good runs to open the career at Nelson. Wide draw, but a quick beginner who could get across them all early here. Each way all day.

8 Distinguished Taste: Strong debut effort for third at Timaru. Right stable and right driver, only a food would leave out.

7 Miss Impression: First starter from a strike-rate stable who always demand respect. Not the worst chance here on debut.

Selections: 3-9-8-7

 

BEST: 5 Glenthorne (Race 6)

NEXT: 3 Ragnarr (Race 9)

VALUE:  11 Fynn Frost (Race 4)
