Canterbury harness racing trainer Robert Dunn has a big team of horses engaged tonight at Addington and also has two runners entered at Alexandra Park.

Robert thought the best chance of all his runners tonight was Alta Maestro in the NRM Sires Stakes heat at Addington, when speaking to TAB bookmaker Stephen Richardson today about his team and their chances tonight at both venues.

" Alta Maestro has been getting back in his races from the draws but hopefully he can land further forward tonight. If he can lead then I think whatever beats him will win",he said, 

"Last season he struggled a bit with tie up issues but I am much happier with him now and he is relishing the beach training".

Robert speaks about his Addington runners:

Race 2   Mahksman  - "I am very happy with the horse. Funatthebeach looks very hard to beat, but I give our horse a good chance of finishing in a place the way it is working at home". 

Race 3  Woodstone  -  " John said it got a bit of a check last start but was travelling well at the time. I could see it finishing in the first four if it did everything right."

Race 4  Better Chance - " The draw will help and she has been working well. Place chance"
              Lovetodream - "Is as sit and sprint type of horse and might have to go back at the start from the wide barrier. The draw is a concern but she is well"
              American Tart - "She is trialing well and is ready to go a big race.  She is targeting a 4yo listed mares race on show day but  I expect her to be in the first two tonight".

Race 5  Foreverman - "He should go a good race and the field is not overly strong. The run at Kaikoura will have topped him off nicely".

Race 6   Alta Orlando - " He is up against some tough opposition and will need luck in that field"

Race 7   De Lancome - "Up against some good fillies and the draw is good but she will improve with the run"

Race 8   Alta Maestro - "He has been getting back in his races from the draws but hopefully he can land further forward tonight. If he can lead then I think whatever beats him will win",he said, 

"Last season he struggled a bit with tie up issues but I am much happier with him now and he is relishing the beach training".

               Henry Hubert - "He is probably six months away from showing his best and a very strong field here".

               The Brooklyn Brawler - "The draw is against him and he might struggle from there, especially if the pace is on". 

Race 9   Yagunnakissmeornot - "She has never really gone that well left handed but I am happy with her. She can run a place with luck in the running"

 

Alexandra Park

Race 4   Wrangler - "I was a bit disappointed with him last start but his bloods came back ok. I expect him to run in the first three with the drop in class".

Race 6   Dreams To Reality - "He has a good draw and is working well. He will race forward and if he could find the lead he wont be far away"
