The full, in depth preview for the six races at Matamata ( Updated track bias described by our very experienced Track Walker) is here. There will be an update by noon and live updates around 2 minutes before each race with the birdcage bully, any market movers etc. It was very popular last year so I have decided to trial it again, so any feedback will help.
Subscribers can also enter the Tauranga Punters Club syndicate for this Saturday here ( last meeting returned $60 for every $10 ) and the Terminating Pick 6 , at least $25k) Pick 6 at the Palmerston North dogs here this Monday on Commentators day.
In the first race the favourite looks very well placed to win again.
The speed map shows Mannies Power likely to hunt out and lead with Son Of Bielski looking to get across 2nd outer without doing too much. Danger Dee can jump and get the 1×1. Ludus can drop into the trail. The others are likely to drop behind these from wider draws. A moderate tempo likely suiting on pace runners.
2.Son Of Bielski has the strongest recent form with his 2nd here last start behind Our Alley Cat in the best speed rating of the day and an FR ( Formpro Rating) of 101, 3 lengths better than anything else rated in their last two starts. On debut, he sat 2nd outer and easily won in better time than the R72 race by 8 lengths. He should be able to slide over 2nd outer or even lead if allowed. With no midrace pressure likely, he should get the race run to suit and looks the obvious one. His action says a Dead to slow track is fine. RP $1.80, $1.70 FF
4.Mannie’s Power won here in January on a dead 4 track leading early then 2nd outer on a good tempo and held on very well. Her only other win came here on a slow track over 1200m on a Slow track. Last start she settled 7th outer, improved wide and found the line strongly in a slightly stronger R65. She looks the only one capable of beating Son Of Bielski if he is not on his game. She is fit, should lead and has an ideal action for a Dead to slow track. RP $5, $6.50 FF
5.Ludus won at Te Aroha over 1600m in a weaker maiden and ran on ok from near last at Ellerslie in a stronger R65 field after snagging from a wide draw. In her recent trial she began well, eased to last and ran on nicely for 4th without being pushed. She is best suited to 1600m and a better pace and hard to see her outsprinting the above two in a sit sprint. RP $7, $4 FF
