Another busy week, headlined by Stylish Memphis, Fancy, and Skippys Delight taking on Sires Stakes races at Addington.
ADDINGTON, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29
RACE 2 MICHELLE (2, fr. 1980m mob) Sam Ottley, & SIOUX PRINCESS (10) Mark Jones – “Michelle has not had a trial and will likely need it. Thought it’s a good opportunity to kick her off in this race. Sioux Princess I’ll drive this week. If she does things right she is definitely a good chance.” (Mark).
RACE 4 FANCY (5, fr, 1980m mob) Sam Ottley & STYLISH MEMPHIS (8) Ricky May -“Fancy won really good last start, she bolted in. We’ll likely tuck in and with the right run she can be top three in this.” (Benny). “Stylish Memphis does have a tricky draw but very pleased with her trial and progress since Wyndham. She’ll go good again.” (Mark)/
RACE 7 SKIPPYS DELIGHT (6, fr. 1980m mob) Ricky May -“Really pleased with him. A tricky little race being such a small field. He can win. I’ll leave it all up to Ricky what he does, he knows best.” (Benny).
RACE 8 NIRVANA BEACH (4, fr. 1980m mob) Ricky May, & WILLISON (5) Mark Jones -“Nirvana Beach has worked well. He hates Ashburton and we’ve put a line through that. Should go forward has good gate speed and won’t be far away here.” (Benny). “Willison will head to the paddock after this. No luck Cup week and I’d hope for some more luck here.” (Mark).
OAMARU, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30
RACE 1 SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR (3, fr. 2000m stand) Sam Ottley -“A race instead of a trial for her. A nice handy maiden trotter and though maybe she needs it is not the worst in the race.” (Mark).
RACE 4 MAHARAJAH (14, fr. 2000m stand) Sam Ottley -“No luck at Invercargill, they dashed a half and he was too far back. Tricky draw but I think the grass is going to suit him.” (Mark).
RACE 8 DONEGAL GILBERT (1, fr. 2000m mob) Zachary Butcher -“A much improved draw and he’s not been helped much lately. Good place for him on the fence there and with a good driver we’re hopeful.” (Benny).
RACE 9 DENY EVERYTHING (7, fr. 2000m mob) Sam Ottley -“Off-colour Cup week but he’s freshened up nicely and should go a good race given he’s a pretty handy maiden.” (Mark).
MOTUKARARA, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1
RACE 8 SMOKE N REACTOR (1, fr. 2000m mob) Sam Ottley -“Perfect draw for her and she does go well on the grass. Nice enough run last week. Looks a top three chance from here.” (Mark).
RACE 9 MICHELLE (12, U2, ft. 2170m stand) Sam Ottley -“She may back up from Addington. Nice race for her this one and wouldn’t be the worst safely through Friday night’s run.” (Mark).
