The Betfair Insider Harness Ratings: Geelong, Thursday January 5 2017

Race comments, confidence and ratings across the entire card at Geelong.

Geelong Markets R1 – 6

R1 DNR Logistics 3yo Pace | 16096:25pm

A few scratching’s have decimated this race. KEAYANG ALIMAR is from the all-conquering Marg Lee stable with Jason Lee driving so no doubt will head forward. MELPARK ALEXA is related to former good horses Melpark Major and Melpark Maestro so no doubt has good prospects. SHEZ SAUL GOOD gets the gun draw and a new trainer so expect improvement.

Race Confidence: Low

R2 Jims Mowing Trot | 2100m 6:57pm

VERBIER is from the strong Golino Trotting stables with one start in the state for fourth in a better race. Down in class here and the one to beat. NO TRUMPS NO GLORY is consistent and will have to come with one run. SUMO GRIN likes to lead so will come out strong as does SHIFTYWALL. EURASIAN HANOVER is a place chance at big odds.

R3 AON Business Insurance Pace | 2100| 7:30pm

CAPTAIN BRONZIE gets best draw in a while, in fact last time drew this barrier was a $1.30 favourite and won at Cranbourne. KEAYANG SQUIZZY will probably be under the odds especially from the outside second row draw. DELTA SAFARI likes to go forward but in this class, doesn’t look much chance. CARMENS SPIRIT gets a cushy run and BALANCE POINT could be value down in class here.

R4 Flying Brick Cider Co. Pace | 2100| 8:00pm

There are no stars here. WEGOTTAROCKETMACHINE is constantly short odds and disappoints with its last win back in March. ARDENS LEGACY is going OK but could come up too short. Value looks to be BE GOOD JUDDY (albeit drawn badly) who was a good fifth to the smart Ascot Encounter last time. HALF CROWN GAP is flying and with any luck from the draw will be hard to beat. WARMINSTER will be looking for the lead with Lance Justice in the gig.

R5 Australian Pacing Gold Pace (1st Heat) 2100m | 8:30pm

SOHO MONTELENA is a nice horse having won 2/6 however may be too short here. Will go forward and look for the lead. RYDER is first up and from the draw a tough assignment however is smart. PROFICIENT also has a poor draw and ALL EYES AND EARS will go forward as it did when leading and winning last start.

R6 Devcon Properties Pace | 2100m | 9:00pm

Not my favourite race of the night. COCOS DELIGHT got this draw when sat behind the leader to win at Melton two starts ago. KRISTY ANN HANOVER will improve with the driver change of Mario Azzapardi to Gavin Lang. CLANCY PANTS was very good from a horrible draw last time. ARTISTIC SHEILA is one I want to take on. Beaten 42m last time (albeit by a nice one in Bou Chard). CONCORDE DAWN has come up top pick but gets the worst draw of the fancies.
