ADDINGTON, THURSDAY, AUGUST 22
RACE 4 KOWHAI SUNDOWN (4, fr. 2600m stand) Sam Ottley -“He would need to trot all the way this week. The return to the stand could be a query. A place chance if he does things right,” said Mark.
RACE 7 UPTOWN LADY (1, fr. 1980m mob) Sam Ottley & NAIYA FRANCO (3) Ricky May – “Uptown Lady should be that bit better from last week, still perhaps the half-run short after a hiccup. Drawn to likely trail and she should go well there. Naiya Franco was disappointing last week. She can do that from time to time and has a place chance in there.”
RACE 8 SMOKE N REACTOR (1, fr. 2600m stand) Sam Ottley -“She will win the Met Multiplier bonus this week so walks away with $7000 and a photo regardless. Her fifth run in five weeks questionable but could place if things went right.”
ALEXANDRA PARK, FRIDAY, AUGUST 23
RACE 8 MICHELLE (2, fr. 1609m mob) Todd Mitchell -“She’s capable but the manners have been a bit mixed. Place chance if she puts her best foot forward with Kay Cee looking a bit too good.”
ALBION PARK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 24
RACE 1 BARRETT (1, fr. 1660m mob) Guy Chapple -“He’s going well. Picked up a good win earlier in the week and has a good draw. He should run another good one from there.
RACE 2 THE BUS (4, fr. 1660m mob) Guy Chapple -“He is racing good up there. Drawn handily and should be a good chance again in that grade.
RACE 7 GETARATTLEON (6, fr. 1660m mob) Guy Chapple -“Found things a bit tougher since he won there three starts ago. Wider gate no help, looks a place chance only.
RACE 10 ROCK N JOY (3, fr. 1660m mob) Guy Chapple -“She is battling around at the moment. Might need some luck the form she’s in just now. Place.”
