OTTAWA
Race 5: Open Maiden 1200m

Horse no: 7
Time: 8.20 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (56kg)

Foxwedge (AUS) x Marie Soleil (USA) 3yo gelding. James has been pleased with him, he's in good condition and has been working well. He jumps from barrier 8; on paper the race doesn't look to have too much speed, if we're nice and positive out the barrier hopefully we can get up to the first four or five with some cover. The step up from 1100m should suit him and if he can get up to speed he should be competitive.

 

DREAMWEAVER
Race 10: Class 3 - 1200m

Horse no: 7
Time: 9.20 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (54kg)

Jeremy (USA) x Indus Ridge (IRE) 5yo gelding. He continues to hold his form well and his trackwork is very strong. Unfortunately he's drawn a wide gate, on paper there seems to be lots of speed in the race with a heap of horses who will go forward. We need a bit of luck - we'll try to ride with a bit of cover from the wide barrier instead of pushing along to find a spot. Hopefully he can slide across and slot in somewhere midfield and ride his race from there and finish off well.
