Race 1: CASTLEREAGH (11, Mark), mob. 1950m: “Nice trotter in the making. Terrible draw and still learning but he’s an each-way chance.”

Race 9: MASTER LAVROS (9, Mark), 1, 30m, 2600m std: “Back to a stand start is a worry and 30m makes it tough when he couldn’t beat them off the mobile last time so looking for an improved performance.”

Outside drive
