Four Starzzz Shiraz's last start win

The Harness Racing team of Graeme Anderson and Rory Mcllwrick have a huge chance of picking up four winners at today's Forbury Park Trotting Club's meeting.

Starting off in race 3 with 4yo Gotta Go Cullect gelding, Hunters Collect, who was recently purchased by Rory, out of the Murray Brown stable.

Hunters Collect galloped behind the mobile gate last Monday, and was subsequently pulled up. He draws a handy in barrier 3 and has been put up as a $6.00 FF chance with the NZ Tab. With Anderson's record of turning horses around, you would think this fella will be breaking maidens in the coming weeks.

Fast forward to Race 7, and Anderson lines up smart 4yo Panspacificflight gelding Arden's Concord, who was seen powering home last start.

He recently switched back to the Anderson barn, after winning 3 races for West Plains based trainer Matt Saunders. The Tab have him as a $2.20 FF favourite, while recent Rangiora winner Parramatta is at $3.30 for driver/co-trainer Terry Chmiel.

Even from a tricky barrier, he still looks tough to beat and could be a possible anchor for pick 6 players.

In race 9, 5yo Four Starzzz Shark gelding Four Starzz Shiraz will look to make it back to back win after he darted up the lane to record his 6th career victory. His massive early speed negates his wide barrier and you should see another short priced Anderson runner, salute the judge. Currently $3.00 FF

With everything going to plan earlier on, junior driver Rory Mcllwrick and trainer Graeme Anderson could be looking at four winners for the night if Elusive Flight was to capture heat 2 of the Forbury Park claimers series.

A $9,000.00 claimer, the 7yo Elsu gelding Elusive Flight is owned by Charlotte Purvis, A D Gow, S R Pulley and R Chalklin and is another runner who has drawn tricky in barrier 9. He is currently $2.20 FF, while a former Anderson trained runner Laughing Cavalier, who was claimed last week, will start for the first time for new connections and new trainer/driver Andrew Armour.
