A solid team for the better stakes on Friday night, likely led by smart comeback trotter Majestic Lavros who tackles the lesser of two options he could have taken.


RACE 1 MICHELLE (1, fr. 2600m mob) Robbie Close, and MAJESTIC LAVROS (12) Sam Ottley -“Michelle re-joined the team after her run at Motukarara last week. Higgsy has her going well. Seems bright and the draw could help. Majestic Lavros could have taken on the 4YO & 5YO race later in the night. But I decided to go with this one, he’s not long been back off a long break from racing and his turn will come. Should be hard to beat.”

Michelle is back in the barn and going well just now.

RACE 3 QUEENOFDANCE (5, fr. 1980m mob) Jim Curtin, and LULU LE MANS (10) Sam Ottley -” Queenofdance also came back to the stable after Motukarara last week. She’s done a handy job. Premier night may test her but she’s s place chance. Lulu Le Mans had no luck behind Stylish Memphis. Craig (Thornley) said he should have finished closer. Issue here the draw again. Looks very tricky.”

RACE 7 WILLISON (6, fr. 1980m mob) Robbie Close, and BURNHAM BOY (7) Sam Ottley -“Really pleased with Willison down south, I thought he’d go good and he did. Goose (Close) drove him that well he stays on board, rightfully so. Tougher task obviously. And it is for Burnham Boy. He’s better suited to a tough 2600m than a speedy 1980m.”

RACE 3 BRING BACK LEAH (18, fr, 1700m mob) Sam Ottley -“You’d be kidding if you could even think winning was possible from 18 over 1700m.Sounds ridiculous, because it is. She’s going to need a lot of things go right.”

RACE 4 UBER EXPRESS (7, fr. 2000m stand) Sam Ottley -“Really solid first up run and should be better for the experience. Looks to get a nice chance but two or three in there I’d be wary of, too.”

RACE 6 SIOUX PRINCESS, (13, U3, fr. 2600m stand) Sarah O’Reilly -“Likely to miss a run on the ballot at Addington. She’s capable, Sarah knows her now and she’s not far off winning another one.”
