J Scott The Inside Word

FORBURY PARK TC, Thursday, June 19

Race 8: JACCKA LEN (1, Blair Orange), 2200m std: ‘He’s racing good. If he steps and stays handy he’s a strong each-way chance.”

Race 9: ROCK TILL YOU DROP (9, Blair Orange), mob. 2200m: “Is better than his form reads. Has drawn bad but rates a good each-way show.”

MARLBOROUGH HRC, Friday, June 20

Race 2: EASTBURN MARA (13, Mark), 2400m std: “Racing good but meets a nice field. Is drawn bad but always a chance.”

Race 3: CAVALLO VOLANTE (12, Blair Orange), mob. 2400m: “Deserves a winning turn. He’s racing good and hopefully will pick one up on the circuit.”

Race 6: ZAKSPATROL (3, Blair Orange), 2300m std: “Good effort the second day at Nelson. If he races up to that form he’s a good chance again.”

Race 11: STRIKE ON COMMAND (9, Blair Orange), mob. 2300m: “He’s drawn bad but seems well and will be improved from last week’s run. Will find it tough to beat Motu Prince Of Peru from the wide draw.”

Outside drives

Race 4: DOUBLE BOURBON (15), mob. 2300m: “Tough draw first-up, so looking for luck.”

Race 9: RIVER BLACK (5), 1, 10m, 2300m std: “He’s resuming but has won a couple of workouts and ran second in a trial so should be ready. Could be a bit of place value.”

Race 10: WHYAMIBETTOR (3), mob. 2300m: “She’s usually honest but place probably best.”
