RACE 2 RUTHLESS SUCCESS (6, fr. 2600m stand) Laura McKay -“She’s racing well. Always a chance in these types of races and with a nice sit somewhere she will run on well as usual.”

RACE 2 MICHELLE (15, fr. 2600m stand) Sam Ottley -“She’s here as she is better to start here than go to the trials, to be honest. A talented mare if she does things right and though she is likely to need a run or two you never know – she has come up pretty well and one to follow over Xmas.”

RACE 4 SMOKE N REACTOR (12, fr. 1950m mobile) Sam Ottley -“A big run at Motukarara. Would have gone close to winning with a trip but that didn’t happen. Tough task from back here in a race that will dominated from the front. Place is best.”

RACE 9 BELLE OF BROOKLYN (11, fr. 1950m mobile) Sam Ottley -“She’s racing quite good but finding it tough in some pretty good fields. Another tough one here. If she could place I’d be happy.”


RACE 2 MAXWELL MONTEZ (4, fr. 2600m stand) Sam Ottley -“He’s done a couple of things wrong in two starts so far. Better than that but he will need to step up here. A rough place chance if he steps away well.”

RACE 4 IMMORTAL CHANGE (8, fr. 1950m mobile) Sam Ottley -“A nice type of filly having her first start and one that will improve a lot with it. She went nicely at the trials and should win a race in the next few weeks.”

RACE 9 LAVROS TEXAS (1, fr. 2600m stand) Amber Lethaby -“He has his first start from my stable. A handy trotter when he’s right and has always raced quite good on the grass. Will need one or two to get up to speed, I would think. But a roughies chance if he steps good.”

RACE 9 KOWHAI WHIZ (13, 1, 30m. 2600m stand) Laura McKay -“He’s racing good but the handicaps are making it tough on him. If he could get close enough soon enough he’d have a show but that 30m just makes life difficult.”
