No3 MAGIC SEARCH has been very good at winning the last two in the country region and has put gaps into her rivals. She now comes to a weak provincial meeting, now that she has her confidence up she can go on with it here.
No2 GRACIOUSNESS has been going well enough this time in, the maiden win two back was solid.
No1 BRINGAGEM got the job done in good style last start, she now comes to provincial level and should run well.
No4 SCULPTURES drops in grade and looks next best.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 GRACIOUSNESS
No3 CORMAC was very good first-up when running right through the line in good style. That race should hold up quite well here, as they ran decent enough time. The step up to 1600m here is ideal and he gets a good run on the map for Angland and should be going close to winning.
No4 FALCON ISLAND was very good on debut, the fitness improvement gives him a chance here.
No6 PERUN can only improve off the first-up run, and has the ability.
No7 ROYAL PATRIOT gets a good run on the map here and blinkers first time is a bonus.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 PERUN
No1 STAR OF MONSOON (NEXT BEST BET) yes I am tipping him as a near good thing, either I've had too much to drink over Xmas or I’m insane. He has finally been gelded this time in and the trial was super leading in. he has done this before. But hasn’t gone on with it. If the gelding has worked, we may well see the best of him now.
No4 FORGE AHEAD has been good at both starts and the trial leading in was good.
No8 ROTTERDAM is quite well bred and has been trialing well coming into this.
No10 UNWISE should be suited stepping up in trip to the 1100m.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 FORGE AHEAD
No10 BEE NEATA won in very good style on debut in fast time, she has the upside that these don’t and should be going close to winning again.
No8 YEAS AND NAYS has been going well enough this time in, and gets a good run on the map.
No1 KING’S TARIFF (BEST ROUGHIE) was good when winning fresh, and the claim for JVO helps.
No5 WILLIAMSON won well fresh and gets a good claim for Ings here, who is ever improved as a jock.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 KING’S TARIFF
No5 TEAHUPO’O gets a good run of it on the map here, and won quite well when breaking the maiden. The step to 1900m suits.
No3 BLANCO CARA comes well back in grade here, this is her best chance to win a race this time in.
No1 GOLD AMBITION finds as weak a race as he has run in, in some time. He gets a chance here.
No6 PARIS SIZZLER has been good, winning two of the three starts, the step up to 1900m here is suitable.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 TEAHUPO’O
No1 SEDANZER (BEST BET) will be winning this, if she holds her form. The three wins this time in have been nothing short of fantastic, and running time. She is on the way up, while a few of these are going up and down in the same spot.
No6 PECANS has been quite good winning her past two, she is out of her grade here but in good form.
No2 DENMAGIC is suited under the conditions here. She hates winning, but has her chance to run well.
No5 OUR BELISA has been going really well this time in, and gets a chance to get some black type.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 PECANS
No2 ALLEGHENY has quite a solid little record over the short career thus far, the win first up was good enough.
No6 KETTERING is back from a freshen up here, he is yet to live up to the expectations but gets a good run for Glyn.
No9 SEETHING JACKAL gets the tongue tie on for the first time here and he should be able to turn it around after a poor one last start.
No11 FOREVER RANGA has been good at winning the last two starts, she gets a good run of it for Brown.
VALUE RUNNER: No11 FOREVER RANGA
