Harness Ratings: Addington, Tuesday 14th November 2017

R6 | 1950m 12:39pm

RONALD J is the up and comer with seven wins from 12, having won four in a row before a good third at Kaikoura. Was sent out favourite here last time when led and was home with 100m to go but galloped. If Bob Butt can control this one, it may be game over. GREAT THINGS HAPPEN was awesome when racing in Australia, its last two starts here have been very good when second behind Bordeaux and a narrow but comfortable win over Habibti Ivy in the Flying Mile. Draw makes it tougher, but is going well.

DARK HORSE is extremely talented but gets the visitors gate here and although ran third here last week, it was well and truly going to be beaten by Ronald J. Has won nine from 18 and just needs some luck. MARCOOLA has been there and done that and gets the good draw. The winner of 11 from 26, probably isn’t racing at his best however the draw ensures a good race will be run here. PRINCE FEARLESS, EVERYBODY KNOWS and DOCTOR BONES are also chances with the right runs.

The All Star Team dominate another youngsters race here with Six runners. SPANKEM has come up the top pick and although the four from 12 record (and eight placings) is very good, I feel that he may be vulnerable here. Two placings when resuming here, the eight placings is what worries me. CHASE AUCKLAND has a back row draw to overcome but has a perfect four from four record. Has started favourite on each occasion, the latest two defeating THE DEVILS OWN who itself is an each way chance here.

KING OF SWING is blessed with good draws, the Breeders Crown winner had this draw winning that event and from the pole is a chance again. PAT’S DELIGHT has won five in a row, ALTA MAESTRO is a very nice horse but gets a tough draw and ALL U NEED IS FAIT and THE DEVILS OWN can both win. Tough race, and runs in transit will play a major part in the result.

R10 | 3200| 3:10pm

LAZARUS won this event by the length of the straight last year, it’s hard to imagine that can happen again but he is going that well that it could. The win at Kaikoura was arrogant, sitting in the chair and winning easily. Has now won an incredible 30 from 35, and I don’t have enough space here to list the major victories. Whatever beats him will win. HEAVEN ROCKS is the newbie on the block, highly talented but a bit risky. He has won 11 from 19 and the only defeats in its last nine starts have come at the hands of Lazarus. No doubt has the talent to win, but you would imagine would need luck to beat the favourite.

DREAM ABOUT ME is another with an unbelievable strike rate of 19 from 27 but again, Lazarus has her measure. HAVE FAITH IN ME was Australasia’s pin up a few seasons ago, but is just too risky to back so have to take on trust. TIGER TARA is flying the banner for Australia, simply outstays its rivals in NSW, the distance will suit here but one feels he will be the one that has to do all the hard work here. Most of the others can place and that is probably the best they can hope for. Stand up, and watch a champion in action.
