Saturday preview posted

Good morning,

A good day of racing with a hint of Spring in the air – and about time! I’ve walked the Tauranga track which is not as heavy as I thought it would be. The full report of that and full previews of Tauranga and Riccarton, with a couple of well placed runners in Australia, can be seen here

An update will be posted by 11.45 for Riccarton and 12.30 for Tauranga with any other bets.  There’s a good bet in the first at Riccarton. I nearly always prefer race fit horses over fresh horses and this is a typical case:


Race 1

Confidence: 3/5

2.Zoltan  was ridden just right last start and came with a very strong late run to beat the hotty Matchmaker. The Speed rating, despite it being 30m less than the advertised distance, was still the best of the day. The step to 1200m will suit even better and he would have learnt a lot from that last run too. Up against his stablemate, Eva James here, but she could be a bit suspect at a truly run 1200m now especially after a 42 day break, so I’m quite keen on Zoltan getting over her in the last 50 metres. RP$2.50, $3.10 FF

You can login with username Formpro and the password can be heard by calling 0900 36 76 7  ( 0900 FORMPRO )  for a cost of $10 which will last till next Thursday night, 3rd September . Or you can subscribe here with Credit Card or direct banking into ANZ 01-0677-0114026-00

Some users, instead of ringing the 0900 36767 number now like to deposit $10 into my Bank account ANZ 01-0677-0114026-00 and then text me on 027 352 6402 for the Formpro current and new password which will last till next Thursday night, which can be done easily. ( Or $5 for  Day pass)

Good luck,
