NZ METRO TC, Thursday, July 5

Race 1: IMMORTAL CHANGE (2, Blair Orange), BELLE OF BROOKLYN (3, Samantha Ottley) & MOYTURA (7, Sheree Tomlinson), mob. 1980m: “Immortal Change will need the run but I’m actually happy with her work and she will be a definite top three chance from the draw.”

“Belle Of Brooklyn put in good efforts at Blenheim. Is coming in on the fresh side but seems bright and is an outside place chance.”

“Moytura has been racing strongly but probably just a place chance this time with Cullenburn the one to beat.”


Race 8: MANINTHEMIRROR (2, Samantha Ottley), mob. 1980m: “Big improvement last start and an upset place chance again.”

Race 9: JOEY MAGUIRE (10, Sheree Tomlinson), mob. 1980m: “Gets in the right race and can place if he doesn’t get pushed back too far.”
