Sunday, 25 July


1 – 9/5/3/4 KEAYANG CHUCKY

·       Fitter for two runs in stronger races
·       Drawn to work forward and find the lead

·       Good recent Melton trial to prepare for this

4 – 5/6/11/1 DELLSUN

·       Made the most of perfect run behind leader to win last time
·       Has the speed to use this draw
·       This race not much harder and can repeat the dose

5 – 10/8/11/7 NAI HARN BAY

·       Worked too hard and tired last time
·       Previous form good, including a 3rd at Terang two starts back
·       Should be finishing strongly

6 – 4/5/6/2 KEAYANG XENA

·       Good value play in the best race of the day for 3YO trotters

8 – 1/8/6/2 SILVER DOMINO

·       Gets his chance from perfect pole draw
·       Top young driver Jack Laugher
·       Showed he was ready with good third after working hard early last time

9 – 5/4/2/6 ORLANDOS GIFT

·       Looks the best of the very weak bunch
