THE ODDS
Race 2: Restricted Maiden - 1200m

Horse no: 6
Time: 6.20 PM
Jockey: M RODD (57kg)

Casino Prince (AUS) x Port of Africa (AUS) 3yo gelding. He's come through his last start-run really well - had a quiet week last week and a good gallop earlier this week. He looked like he did everything easily and is moving very well. He's drawn a nice barrier in barrier 4 this time. From that barrier we should be able to sit a bit closer to the speed with some cover. If he can run up to his last start's performance he should be right in the finish despite some decent competition.

 

OLYMPIC ANTHEM
Race 2: Open Benchmark - 1000m

Horse no: 2
Time: 9.20 PM
Jockey: M RODD (59kg)

Starcraft (NZ) x Fire Song (NZ) 6yo gelding. He looks great and is working well and doing everything right. He jumps from barrier 6 and unfortunately gets a high weight of 59kg, which makes things a bit harder for him. We'll try to get him to a mid-field position or a bit further back and hopefully finish off well down the straight. 1000m is probably a little on the sharp side for him but we'll take a chance and hopefully he'll be able to pick up a bit more prizemoney. 


 

Sunday 28 May 2017
 

MACARTHUR
Race 3: Class 4 - 1200m
Horse no: 3
Time: 1.55 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (58kg)

Charge Forward (AUS) x Mozambique (AUS) 3yo gelding. He's in good condition, fresh and well going into his race on Sunday. He's drawn a nice inside barrier in 1; on paper, there looks to be some nice speed in the race but we need to begin well and get him up and running and let Vlad judge his race. He's nice and fresh and if he runs up to his current condition hopefully he should be right in the finish.

 

NIGHT FLIGHT
Race 6: Class 3 - 1400m
Horse no: 6
Time: 3.25 PM
Jockey: G BOSS (54KG)

Naaqoos (GB) x Laqataat (IRE) 5yo gelding. He's come through his first-up run really well and is in nice condition. He had a solid gallop in the middle of the week and worked nicely. He's drawn a nice barrier in barrier 3; on paper there are a couple of horses that will roll forward and go along in front. From our barrier we can settle a bit closer to the pace than his last run - somewhere midfield - and get hopefully get into clear galloping room down the home straight. If he gets into some clear room he should be able to hit the line well and be right in the finish.
