Friday preview below


Good morning,

A couple of well placed bets below and the late quaddie looks worth a bet also. An early preview of Saturday posted by noon.

Apologies, no Heads Up today. Back next Friday.


Bet of the Day Race 3 6.Felicienne $2.40 FF Missed

Value bet of the Day Race 1 6.Prosperous $9 FF 4th

Suggested late quaddie for $18 for 10% Yes Paid $696

R5   1, 2, 3
R6   4, 5, 6, 8, 11
R7   1, 2, 6
R8   2, 4, 6, 10

Race 1


6.Prosperous  would have gone very close with a clear run last stat Tauranga. She is peaking third up now and has won on a heavy track. 1600m looks ideal as well. RP $6, $9 FF


1.All Black Bourbon  top run at Trentham in a stronger field. Tends to get back though and will be on the inner so will need luck.

Race 2

Confidence: 0.01/5 Good race to watch.


Having a bet in it.

Race 3


6.Felicienne   ran a game second fresh up ( daylight to third) and looked in need of the run. The winner lay out and made it harder for her to win and decided not to protest although I have seen protests lodged for lesser interference. The step to 1400m looks ideal now and with a good ride should win well. Nice filly who relaxes well and 1400m will suit now. Slow to heavy track ok. RP $2.20, $2.40 FF

Race 4


3.Corrine  did very well last start when posted 3 wide in the open and kept her head down and went to the line strongly with an ideal wet track action. Game filly and drawn to get a decent run this time so will get every chance to challenge early in the straight and see how tough the rest are. RP $3.50

Race 5

Confidence: 1/5

3.Legit  improved nicely to run third last start over 1200m behind a nice horse in Twitch. Fitter now and a wet track should be ok.


2.Paradigm Shift  1st $9 looked good finishing strongly for second in his trial with a good wet track action.

1.Weowna Tiger  back to 1200m with a good run from a wide draw, would see him right in this. Blinkers go on.

Race 6

Confidence:1/5 in an open race

5.Fonteyn 1st $4  was just too good last start here on a slow track. Very fit and right in it.


6.Locomotion got a well deserved win last start and is very fit.

11.Sweet Molly Malone was doing her best late fresh up. Drawn better here and won’t mind a wet track and strikes a weak R65 field. Query is she does seem better right handed as she lay out at her only left j=hand start at Rotorua and proved an awkward ride.

4.El Fiesta Girl  won well here last start and a wet track will suit her more than some.

8.El Nymph  won strongly here on a similar surface over 1600m and after two runs back with the blinkers coming off and from a good draw, she can upset.

Race 7


6.Limentis  ran on nicely fresh up in an on pace race and ran a strong second here, second up, last campaign on a Heavy 10 track and won third up over 1400m here on a Slow 8. Wide draw may be a plus by this time of day. RP $3.60, $4.20 FF


1.Thunder 1st $3  is a nice horse and with 3kgs off, he can test the favourite.

2.Lily Thunder  will relish a slow to heavy track. Drawn to get a good run if the inside is still ok.

Race 8


6.Because  had no luck last start and drawn to get a good run this time. Gets in on a nice weight and looks the best eachway chance in the field. RP $5


4.Peerless Warrior close fifth here in a stronger R65 three starts back and gets in on a nice weight.

10.Zouluminous racing well and recent trial will have topped her off nicely for this.

2.Leaderboard 1st $2.60  steps up in distance which will suit but hard to catch.
