Maitland R4 – Mixed 4/5 450m
ULTIMATE COAT (2) has hit a purple patch of form with five straight wins including four at the Maitland track. He continues to improve and looks the winner. MANTON BLAZE (4) led all the way to win over the 450m last start and has the speed to find a good spot in the run. She can add some value into the exotics.
Shepparton R6 – 3-6 Wins 450m
NICOLSON BALE (2) has won his last three and is airborne in recent weeks. This is a restricted wins race and he looks a class above his rivals. KRAKEN STINGER (8) was placed from the pink box last week and will once again find the line strongly. He is the knockout chance.
Albion Park R8 – Grade 5 520m
CINCINNATI HOPE (1) is racing consistently with four wins and three placings from her last seven runs and is drawn to hold the early lead from box 1. She will get all the favours in the run and is the one they will need to catch. ANDO’S A THIEF (6) has won her last three and will be hard to hold out IF she can cross from the tricky draw. I think she will struggle to lead and for that reason, I’m taking her on.
