Saturday preview below

Good morning. Some good racing today. I’m very keen on Vespacian at excellent value to win at Trentham. Tokyo Tycoon is a certainty ( Famous last words). Clever Ruds can lead all the way. Prowess is perfectly weighted and maps to get the right run. Lincoln King can upset the favourites if they are off their game or the distance finds them out. If there are any Head to Head or other bets worth taking, I’ll post the update by 12.30 p.m.

Race 4

The speed map shows Vespacian leading and setting his own rules.


7.Vespacian ran a top race last start in a very good race time. She only has to race up to that and with the 3kgs off, looks very likely to lead all the way. RP $2.20, $4.00 FF

Race 5


7.Ciambella is nicely placed here. She should lead and with the light weight, has an each way chance of kicking clear and placing or winning. RP $5 $6.50 FF



Race 1


2.Double O’Seven won well two back and ran on well last start over 1600m. He is a natural stayer and has drawn ideally in one. Michael McNab stays with him and he should get every chance. RP $3.40, $4

Race 2


4.Insatiable won really well last start beating Paul David who won well next up. He will get back form the wide draw and with a nice track into it with Opie up, he will be very hard to hold out. RP $2.50, $3 FF

Race 4


3.Clever Ruds looks an uncontested leader here and when he gets that she is a very hard mare to run down. The set weights suit her as well. RP $3,40, $5 FF

Race 5


1.Tokyo Tycoon wins! Classes above these. RP $1.05, $1.35FF

Race 7


An open race with many chances. In order: 7-12-2-10-5-13

Race 8


8.Prowess should sit outside, the leader,  La Crique,  with 52kgs and be able to dictate terms to her. With the weight advantage over her and the rest, she has the credentials and weight to win. RP $2.20, $2.40 FF


7.La Crique looks the likely leader and should get a soft lead with Prowess sitting outside her, not likely to force the issue. In a sprint home, she is the one Prowess has to run down, and with the weight advantage I give it to Prowess.

Race 9

Confidence: 2/5 

3.Lincoln King is peaking nicely for this. He ran the fastest last 200m last start hitting the line hard- just what you want to see going into this tough 3200m race. He won the Wellington Cup over 3200m so you know he can stay the distance. RP $7, $10 FF


1.Ladies Man won his race well over 2200m and is peaking nicely for this.

13.Aquacade  won easily in good time last start and gets in on a winning weight.
