Upcoming runners 09 and 11 March 2018

Friday 09 March 2018
 

INTROIT
Race 4: Maiden - 1800m

Horse no: 1
Time: 8.20 PM
Jockey: M RODD (59 kg)

Oratorio (IRE) x Bunda Grande (AUS) 4yo gelding. He's working well on the training track and looking good. The step up to 1800m should suit him, however he's drawn a wide barrier and the top weight of 59 kg. Hopefully he gets out of the gates well and into a forward spot - if he manages to get into a into good position he should finish off strongly.
 

WIMBLEDON
Race 6: iRace Classic Kranji Stakes A - 1200m

Horse no: 1
Time: 9.20 PM
Jockey: APP S NOH (-2 kg) (58 kg)

Snitzel (AUS) x Ditas (NZ) 6yo horse. He trialed well last week and seems in good form. Unfortunately he's carrying the top weight against younger horses, and has drawn a bad barrier, but we've got a good apprentice on board who takes off a couple of kilos, and if he gets into a nice spot he should run well.

 

Sunday 11 March 2018
 

ENHANCEMENT
Race 4: Maiden - 1100m
Horse no: 1
Time: 2.10 PM
Jockey: C GRYLLS (59 kg)

Invincible Spirit (IRE) x Gazebo (GB) 4yo gelding. He's having his first run back after a surgery and James is happy with his trial last week. He's got a big weight to carry, but it doesn't look to be an overly strong race. If he begins well and gets into a nice position in the first three or four he should finish off nicely.

 

MR HANKS
Race 9: Class 3 - 1200m
Horse no: 7
Time: 4.50 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (53.5 kg)

Showcasing (GB) x Zafonique (NZ) 3yo gelding. He has improved from his first-up run and has been working well earlier in the week. He's drawn nicely in barrier 2 and should get the run of the race. It's a strong race for the grade but he's a smart horse and hopefully he can measure up.

 

GRAN TORINO
Race 10: Class 3 - 1100m
Horse no: 1
Time: 5.25 PM
Jockey: O PLACAIS (57 kg)

Bel Esprit (AUS) x Final Act (USA) 4yo gelding. Impressive win last start and he stays in same grade. He's got the top weight to carry and unfortunately has drawn wide. He'll need to begin well and get into a forward position; if he does will be in with decent chance.
