Race 5 Home of 9 Group 1’s
It’s always risky taking on a dog who is likely to lead for a long way but I am confident he will be overrun late. I am hoping he will receive some early pressure from Allen Oregon and pester him enough through the middle stages. This should allow Azurite, Linco Bale and Chrichton Bale to be able to have the last crack at him and power home over the top of him late.
Race 10 Silver Chief Heats December 24
#7 Dyna Maddie
She has been finding too much bother of late for mine. She has been competing in some tough races but she drops back in trip here and has a poor wide draw. She is likely to get shuffled back early and may find bother on the first turn. If she finds the rail early this will elevate the stress levels but I am confident the leaders will be off and gone and too slick for her over this distance range.
