Race 8: BM100 HANDICAP 1400M
HARBOUR VIEWS (3) has had 3 trials in prep for his first up assault here and last campaign he beat AYRTON when resuming over this distance at this track. He’s at the pointy end of the weights now but the likely soft track will help him as will John Allen jumping back aboard. He looks a good each way chance.
MYSTERY SHOT (17em) 3rd up now and ready to peak. He was a game 2nd last start at this track and trip and gets in well with the claim again. If he gets into the race he’ll be a chance at big odds. HI STRANGER (5) is racing well and may be ready to perform here albeit it his best distance appears to be 1600 and on a good track. That’s said he’ll be rolling on speed and may be hard to get past.
(3) HARBOUR VIEWS: each way @ $8.00
Race 9: 3YO HANDICAP 1100M
PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE (9) has been impressive in her 2 starts to date winning both races in style. Big step up in grade now but she looks a filly going places. The price is a bit short but she looks the one to beat.
NO WAY EVER (2) has won 2 from 3 this prep including a last start victory at this track and trip on a soft 5. Gets in well with the claim and should be fighting out the finish again. DRAGONSTONE (1) has been racing well in Sydney this prep without winning behind the likes of ANDERMATT and ATHELRIC. He has a big weight to contend with and faces the straight for the first time but with Ollie aboard he’ll be steaming home.
(2) NO WAY EVER: $4.60 to place
