Alexandra Park

There are eleven races at Alexandra Park tonight and some big pools up for grabs. Harness racing in the Auckland region is on the up with larger than normal fields carded and fourteen horses having their first start at the races this evening.

One of those first starters is Rariza (4m Courage Under Fire - Stunning), an unraced mare who qualified in the south for former trainer Chris McDowell.

Rariza is obviously a quicker than average horse winning a maiden workout last Saturday pacing a blistering last 400m in 26.7. She is short on the fixed odds market currently at 1.65 another indication of the ability of the mare,

Driven by Zac Butcher she will be very hard to beat in Race 4 this evening and possibly an anchor in the third leg of the first quaddie starting in Race 2.

The last Quaddie of the night has a starting pool of  $40,000 and is worth a lazy dollar or two with a standout in the first leg.

Quaddie - Races 8-11 inclusive guaranteed to $40,000 if struck 

Leg 1

Ardens Choice looks a standout in this leg and is short on the TAB fixed odds market. She should go close to winning this and possibly the only logical anchor in the quaddie.

Leg 2

This leg is a bit harder with several main chances. Snow Raker has gate speed and should lead here. Jay Abernethy thinks Snow Raker is his best drive of the night so needs to be included. Stunning Shadow, Emerson Margret and Turnbulls are all worth including on previous form.

Leg 3

A very tricky leg of trotters here and no clear standout among them. A bigger spread is needed and include Jomo, I Got Rythm, Mr Natural, Majestic Gal, Opawa Speed and Blood and Whisky.

Leg 4

Not the easiest of legs to finish the quaddie but Stars Delight has been racing well and is one of the better chances. Also needed are Luna De Miel, Booming Jet, Runcle and Kusima

 

Leg 1      6
Leg 2      3,4,10,12
Leg 3      1,2,5,7,8,10
Leg 4      1,2,3,6,9

$18.00 for 15%
