Craig Rail's Preview for Swan Hill

Wed, 25 Apr 2018

The Swan Hill Anzac Centenary Cup has attracted a strong field of open class pacers and should be a competitive race to commence the Quaddie. The interesting runner of the field is the former New South Wales trained pacer Strathlachlan Andy, which makes his debut for trainer Michael Stanley. He boasts a terrific strike rate and possesses a dynamic turn of speed so he should be suited to competing over the short trip. The Peter Manning trained Christmas Jolt will run a forward race from his ideal draw and should ensure there is a genuine tempo throughout. Sixty is racing in career best form and looms as a big threat. Other chances include Showgun Thomas, Sultan Fella and the local hope Itmademyday.
