Shepparton R5 – Restricted Win 450m
WINDY STORM (4) found the front and led all the way from box 8 last week bringing his record at Shepparton to four wins from five starts. A fast beginner he will be too quick for his rivals with a touch of luck from the awkward draw. If he jumps the $2.5+ on offer will look HUGE! MEPUNGA STORM (7) chased home WINDY STORM last week and has enough early speed to pour on the early pressure. She is the danger.
Tip: WINDY STORM @ $2.70
Albion Park R8 – Grade 5 520m
HOPE’S GOLDEN (3) is building an impressive record over the sprint trips at the Creek and steps up to 520m for the first time tonight. She has been strong through the line when winning her last three and should have no problem finding the early lead. She will be hard to run down. BLACK MAGIC ROSE (2) has been racing well at Lismore and has drawn to get a nice tag into the race from the favourite. The pair look likely to fight out the finish.
Hobart R7 – Invitation 461m
EARNING THE CASH (1) has won her last couple of runs at Hobart from tricky box draws and has won five from box 1 in her career. That is a big advantage in an even race and I expect her to punch up along the rails and prove too strong. RIP AWAY (3) missed the start on Thursday night when well backed and ran on well for 4th. He can improve sharply.
