J Scott The Inside Word

RANGIORA HRC @ ADDINGTON, Thursday, September 18

Race 1: MACHS A FLYIN (7, Phill Anderson) mob. 2600m: “Is drawn better and the longer trip suits so each-way chance.”

Race 3: SMOKE N GRIN (5, Mark), 2000m std: “Over-raced first up but if he gets away quick he’s a good winning chance.”

Race 5: CLASSIEBEE (8, Anthony Butt), mob. 1950m: “In tough grade and drawn wide but gets drop-back after this run, which should make him easier to place.”

Race 8: EASTBURN MARA (8, Mark), & TUXEDO MAX (9, Blair Orange) mob. 1950m: “Eastburn Mara is racing good and an each-way chance. Tuxedo Max had no luck last week and is drawn bad again but can win with luck.”

METHVEN TC, Sunday, September 21

Race 4: OASIS DREAM (8, Blair Orange), 3000m std: “Good run last week and I would think the longer trip and grass should suit.”

Outside drive

Race 6: OHOKA JETT (6), mob. 2300m: “He’s had a win and a placing on grass tracks so could be an outside place chance.”
