Friday and early Saturday preview posted

Good morning,

Update 8.22 a.m. Saturday – the full preview of Saturday can be seen here.

Below is Heads Up featuring Chelsea Burdan. There were some connection issues so apologies for that. The question for the $20 multi question is: What was the name of Chelsea’s first career winner?

Well done to David for finding two nice winners at the dogs that were well ridden last night! David is gathering more and more sectional data from Addington, so expect some nice bets there on Thursday nights, along with Palmerston North on a Tuesday.

The preview of Timaru is here and an early preview of Te Rapa and Whanganui is here with an update by 5 p.m.

There is a nice eachway chance in the first detailed below and a preview of the big one- the Foxbridge Plate, below that.

Timaru Race 1

Confidence: 2/5

8.Lady Canto tried to lead on the rail here last start but couldn’t quite cross and that was the winning of the race. Paint Me Red who trailed, came through on the rail and won. This time she can lead or trail Goose bay and looks hard to beat from there. RP $4.50, $6 FF

Race 8 Foxbridge Plate

The speed map shows all of the early speed out wide which should ensure at least an even tempo suiting all runners. How the track is playing may also influence the result and tempo as well. Previous patterns have shown they tend to look to get out to the crown in the centre of the track by this time of day on a Slow track.

Confidence: 3/5

7.Avantage is a  top mare rated 109 and is ready to fire fresh up after a strong win at the trials. Drawn to land in a handy position behind an even tempo and unless they are trying to get out wide to win by this time of day, she looks the logical winner at WFA. RP $2.40


12.Travelling Light  is a good mare who showed she is best ridden in behind others after getting a soft lead in the 1000 Guineas and not finishing it off. her closing sectionals in most races have shown she is top class. Training well and ready to go.

1.Julius  is just a horse that loves to win and has the ability and will to do it. Drawn wide so needs luck against two very good mares.

9.Princess Kereru  always goes well fresh and if the inside is ok, is capable of upsetting. When I spoke to co-trainer Ken Kelso during the week about Supera, he was quite bullish about her chances with the way she has been training.
