Race 7: OPEN HANDICAP 2530M
HORRIFYING (5) won well for us last start after leading and getting his own way up front. He appears to be drawn to repeat the dose here. Craig Williams sticks, he gets another wet track and he remains on the same weight as last start.
TEEWATERS (4) won well last start and looks to progressing nicely this time in however Craig chooses to ride HORRIFYING instead. This looks his toughest ask to date so we’ll find out where he fits in after this race. HIGH EMOCEAN (7) flew home to finish 3rd last start behind HEZASHOCKER in a good effort. Jumps up 530m in distance now at her 3rd run back which isn’t ideal but she could be the one getting home hard.
Race 8: OPEN HANDICAP 1410m
NICOLINI VITO (4) sprinted well when first up here 2 weeks ago when racing down the straight and winning by a nose. Out to a more suitable distance now and with a nice drop in weight this boy looks poised to win again.
ZOLTAN (8) ran a credible 2nd to EDISON last start over this distance on a soft track. Third up now and drawn to get a nice run in transit this boy looks poised to run well. MAKRAM (1) is probably looking for further but it will pay to see how he goes here first up. I don’t think he can win this but he might be one to follow going forward.
