Gee, that was a waste of time and money. Two very mediocre rides on an even more mediocre track. Apologies, I won’t make that mistake again!
I don’t normally do selections for the South Island, but there are a couple there that look some value but aren’t Quality bets.
The early preview of Saturday is here and will be updated by 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. today
3.Love To Dream second up really found the line strongly for second in the fastest of the three 1200m races including the open handicap and R65. She also ran the fastest last 600m of all three races. So third up, where there looks to an even tempo, she looks well placed to win third up and peaking. A heavy 10 should be ok. RP $3.20, $3.60 FF
8.Garment ran two strong races on heavy tracks then last start got back among others and wasn’t happy. They buttoned off midrace and she started to check off heels. Once clear on the turn she ran on nicely in tight quarters but it was an on pace race on a firmer track that she needs. The rain has come in time and she maps to land in the first three and be much harder to beat with Chris Johnson suiting her. RP $5.00, $8.50 FF FF
