Addington Harness - Thursday, 14 March

Race 1
4 Clyde

Consistent trotter in really good form at the moment. Great stand start manners which are a big assist in a field like this and if he was to trot onto the speed early here then he's halfway toward making it three wins in a row because this is no harder.
Selections: 4-12-5-1-10



Race 2
2 Buddha

Probably should have won on debut but met traffic problems at the wrong time which put an end to that. Big effort to get as close as he did. Race experience be a big plus tonight and from the good draw looks a really strong chance to get a win on the board.
Selections: 2-1-12-9-8



Race 3
6 Mighty Logan

Always been a very talented horse and now out on the beach with Robert and Jenna Dunn. Latest trial was a strong second to the brilliant Muscle Mountain, so right in the zone for tonight's resumption. Can do the odd thing wrong though so not past the post.
Selections: 6-3-11-4-9



Race 4
8 Triple G

No shame in the fresh up effort for second behind Dance Till Dawn last time out. Will come on leaps and bounds from that run. Loves to get moving early and has a chance to do that here, even from the wide draw. Should be handy to the speed and hard to stop.
Selections: 8-9-12-1-7



Race 5
11 Rakero Rocket

Raw talent pacer who will have come on plenty from the Cromwell trip. Has raw, high speed and if able to get a nice run through from the second line here can use that speed to outrun all of his rivals here tonight. Good each way chance.
Selections: 11-8-7-12-5



Race 6
4 Mr Kaplan

First up run for the All Stars when second in the Group One behind Allamericanlover was a beauty. Kept on ice since then but gets a key tactical barrier draw advantage on main rival here and should be able to make the most of that and get the job done.
Selections: 4-7-1-6-3



Race 7
5 Oscar Bonavena

Superstar trotter shooting for seven in a row and resumes rivalry with Muscle Mountain too. Well ahead of him in fitness levels so should be the horse to beat tonight with his raw speed and lethal tool in this kind of field.
Selections: 5-6-4-2-3



Race 8
8 American Me

Group One winner back for a new campaign and has been hitting out nicely in a couple of public runs to ready for this. Obviously more to come, but good enough, fresh up to give this a decent shake if things were to fall into place for him.
Selections: 8-9-10-4-7



Race 9
8 Eurostyle

Dug deep to hold out the challenge of Midnight Dash last time out and only going to be better for that run too. This shapes up really well for him. Has options, as there's high speed there too, so doesn't have to do it tough to win like last time. Best horse.
Selections: 8-9-2-3-6



Race 10
6 Chase The Stars

Improvement from the first up run into last time's fourth. Talented pacer who with fitness building will become more of a prospect the more he improves. Third up tonight might be able to really have a crack at victory tonight and no surprise to see it happen.
Selections: 6-5-1-7-2



Race 11
11 Sargent Best

First up for the Williamson stable after a luckless run of fortune. Best when saved for one go, so is going to be unlucky sometimes but high speed horse who could run this field down with a clear shot at them. New surroundings might bring out that little bit extra too.
Selections: 11-4-5-13-3



Best: 2 Buddha (Race 3)
Next: 8 Triple G (Race 4)
Value: 11 Rakero Rocket (Race 5)
