J Scott The Inside Word

GORE HRC, Saturday, October 11

Race 1: LONGBEACH LAD (6, Mark), 2200m std: “We’ve only had him a week and looking for an easier option. A place chance.”

Race 2: TWICE THE DELIGHT (3, Mark), mob. 1700m: “She is owned down south so thought I would take down for the owners. She’s a nice filly, who will continue to improve, but is a winning chance.”

 TIMARU HRC, Sunday, October 12

Race 2: CHAMPAGNE DREAMS (13, Mark), mob. 2000m: “Disappointed first-up as should have run third but can place from the bad draw.”

Race 3: ASTRAPI (7, Mark), mob. 2000m: “He’s fresh-up. I’ll decide on Friday if we start as I’m having a few issues with him.”

Race 8: MACHS A FLYIN (3, Kimberly Butt), FAIR DINKUM BROMAC (8, Mark) & TUXEDO MAX (12, Blair Orange), mob. 2000m:

“Machs A Flyin is looking for a race before another amateur race next week.”

“Fair Dinkum is having terrible luck and drawn bad again.”

“Tuxedo Max scored a good win at his last start but its a step up and he’s draw bad.”

R10: OASIS DREAM (8, Blair Orange) mob. 2600m: “I will decide after Friday if he backs up but an each-way chance in an even field if he comes through his Addington race ok.”
