After race 9
Silent Achiever is back! It was a soft win and she goes into the Ranvet peaking. Dinowood has spent all of his loot so with a few with money in the boot, it ain’t over yet!
After race 8
Dinowood and Zedbee with $200ew got the chocolates with The Tidy Express and Dinowood now takes the lead with two races to go. My daughter is in a work syndicate and since starting about 7 weeks ago,everyone has made a profit and it was her turn today and she was feeling the pressure! She was on The Tidy Express and stopped breathing while she was trapped away on the rails but started again when she dived through that gap! Good fun.
After Race 7
Isn’t it great to se a really good horse lead all the way. Bounding had to work hard to lead so to see her do it again at the end, means she is top shelf. Well done to the person who had the Multi with Vespa into her and an $85,000 return. Paintergirl still clings onto a narrow lead.
After Race 6
2 plus 3 does it again on Vespa. But our leaderboard hasn’t changed much with Paintergirl on top, but only by a coat of paint. It will be interesting to see what he does on Bounding. If she goes flat out for too long trying to cross, he may set it up for a late closer like Angelica Hall. But with half a decent run, Bounding should beat these comfortably. She looked right back to her best in her trial.
Before Race 6
Gee, 11 of us have Way In on top. She put in a huge run last start here and is a genuine chance to beat these.
After Race 5
In Style was friendless with no one on her. So no one has threatened the leaders and at half time, it is still anyone’s to win. Soubrette’s in the next at Otgao looked very smart winning on debut and is going to give Walshy a big chance to get one closer to that record. He needs 7 more wins to beat it and ride the most number of winners ridden in NZ.
Before Race 5
Another tough race for punters. Absolutely Sacred is the popular elect from Virtual Punters, but it is a very open race.
After race 4
Paintergirl and Singapore Sling had $200ew on Zaberto and they both now share the lead. If you were on Lion Rock Hill in the treble, he was a late scratching and you will go to Zaberto as he was the win favourite and therefore the substitute.
Before Race 4
This is the sort of race that the bookies love as they should get a good spread of bets and with the 128% book set, a profit is very likely, no matter which horse wins.
The two movers with them are 14.Table One $12 into $9 and 12.Team Pete, $18 into $12. Team Pete is the top elect of Virtual Punters too so include in trebles. 1.Lion Rock Hill rated 106 last start in the Formpro Ratings and he only needs to rate around 102 to win this. But winning isn’t is best habit so is beatable. 13.Smuckers may get a soft lead here and prove hard to run down and is good value at $14.
For trebles include 1-12-13-14 in the first leg of the treble, second leg is a toughie, but these are worth taking: 1-2-4-8-16 and in the third, 1-3- and 7 should fight it out.
After Race 3
A few were on Albany Reunion, which got a soft lead and was a class or two better than these. They only ran along averaging 12.28 200m sectionals to the 600m mark. Compare that to the 11.99 of the first race and a horse like Silverdale can be excused from the rear.
Before Race 3
Most of us have gone for Albany Reunion which has been the best backed runner $3 into $2.30. He rates 4 lengths clear of the field so you can see why he has been thumped. The Money back Specials are a real good idea. Silverdale looks outstanding and is ready to win. Spitfire Lady ran a good second last start but Travel Wise, which beat him, just battled in the first race. So 3 and 4 look the two.
After race 2
A few were on Gold’N’ Mac, in fact he was the most popular selection. Toastman and Loosy had $100ew and take the lead. With the relagtion in the first because of the interference on the turn with Rosie pushing out, that now leaves Loosy and Toastman in front on $960. The Blackbooker was Orion after taking ages to balance up and flew too late.
After Race 1
Benzini got the bob in to win the first race and kemeys will be happy with $100 ew and takes the lead with $700 – but hold all tickets, the siren has gone. Looking at the head on it was more Secret’s Only moving in that caused a bump, so placings should stand, but stranger things have happened.
Good day of racing today with some very good horses going round. Walshy is seven wins off breaking the record and should be good for a couple today- Soubrettes and Dillinger
No etymology lectures today. No nuggets or priceless gems of information either.
Back again Saturday – first race is off at 12.50 so any selections in Race 1 must be in by 12.40.
