Track information

The Moral

Race 7 - No.6 Magic Owens

This is a trotter in form and he should be able to cruise forward early and dominate.


Take On

Race 4 - No.5 Jean Luc

This bloke is the class runner but his draw doesn't look ideal on paper and he's a touch of unders.

Best Bet(s) - $30 Win
R4 No.2 - Kathys Son$2.4*
This is a pacer in form and it's not impossible he'll find the pegs here so if that eventuates, he's clearly capable of making it three on the bounce.
R7 No.6 - Magic Owens$1.8*
This bloke has been excellent winning his past two and while he returns to a mobile here, this doesn't look to present too many new challenges so the better than even money price looks fair.
Money Race(s)
R6 $35 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
All Starzzz Megan (5) looks to have found her right race but Off The Radar (7) is ready to win so we'll bank them to both run in the first three with the other hopes roving through trifectas.
