Race 1: 2-Y-O FILLIES PLATE 1000M
LAMBDA (5) having her first race start here and will be benefited by being trained at the track and by a stable of renown 2 year old trainers in the Hawks camp. She has had a jump out here and ran top 3 hard held. Jye McNeil gets of the favorite KIN to ride this girl and she looks a promising type in an open race.
KIN (1) was good on debut and strong through the line when 0.2L 2nd to STUPENDO over 1100m at this track. The time was ordinary but the race experience will give her an edge over here rivals. She’s trained by a stable that are proven with early 2 year olds and gets the services of Jamie Kah. LATIZIA (6) has had several trials in prep for this and the stable are adept with producing early 2 year olds.
(5) LAMBDA: 0.5 units win @ $4.40
Race 8: CHESTER MANIFOLD STAKES 1400m
BLAZEJOWSKI (4) was just piped at the post last start at this track and trip by SECOND SLIP. Fourth up now and ready to peak. He gets a better draw to be box seat and a senior jokey in Craig Williams back aboard. He can atone for his last start defeat and the $17 on offer looks over’s.
SECOND SLIP (8) won over this distance at this track last start when getting the gun run and doing no work. Rises a bit in weight now and will be inside the horse he defeated last start in BLAZEJOWSKI so will need luck to get out at the business end. That said he should get his chance. NOT TO BE MIST (12) is progressing through the grades nicely after defeating the talented IT’SOURTIME down the straight last start. Good record at the distance and is proven on firm ground being from Perth. LIGHTHOUSE (9) is the spruik horse here and is stringing together some nice wins in lower grades. She will have to step up here to a whole new level but she looks progressive enough. However her price looks too short at $2.50 to find out.
(4) BLAZEJOWSKI: 0.4 units win @ $17.00
(4) BLAZEJOWSKI: 0.6 units place @ $17.00
