Craig Rail's Preview for Ararat

Tue, 19 Sep 2017

The C4-C6 event (Race 6) is the feature race on the program of eight races at Ararat. Truth And Courage will prove hard to beat from the pole position after he broke 27 seconds for the final quarter at his latest victory but Kotare Mahdi produced a career best performance to win in a mile rate of 1.54.9 at Maryborough last week. Christian Jaz hasn't had much luck since returning from Tasmania and Daylight Dan has been in winning form.
