Just the two recommended bets today. No Quality bets.
2.Our Echo 2nd ran a strong second fresh up behind a promising horse here over 1400m in the fastest of the five 1400 races. Then dropped back to 1200m at Riccarton and also ran a strong second but was just outsprinted. The time was quick. He steps back up to 1400m which is ideal and has the early speed to land in the first four easily, and the lead is there if he wants it, with the lack of early speed here and be very the one to beat from there. RP $3.60, $4.40 FF
12.Lapis Lazuli ran third to Our Echo here coming from the back. She is likely to be 3 back inner or worse and with a moderate tempo likely, Our Echo should have a too much speed for her with a few lengths advantage on the turn.
14.Miss IF Formax ran on late over 1200m at Riccarton. Will get back and will finish on again but Our Echo should have a winning break.
7.Ataahua Dreamtime 2nd has looked very good in all of her three starts. She has run above average sectionals over 1200m or less and looks every bit as though 1400m will suit even better. Drawn to get a good run and fitter now. RP $4.50, $5.50 FF
