Auckland Harness 18th June 2020

Race 1

Yorkshire has his first start in the North since moving from Canterbury and is a strong chance off the front.... On The Cards proven form in top grade and the small field will help negate the tricky handicap.

Selections:  On The Cards (4),   Yorkshire (1),   Callie’s Delight (2),    Red Reactor (3)


Race 2

Silk Likely to go forward at the start and has strong claims with an in-form junior driver in the bike...Adieu Flirt goes well on the track and shorter distance will suit good chance here...Vespa Good win last start can repeat with luck in the running. Sunset Red first up winner in the North but this is harder. Place chances

Selections:  Silk (5),   Adieu Flirt (8),   Vespa (7),   Sunset Red (2)


Race 3

Asteria Lavra Out of contention early last start but can redeem herself here. Top pick...Bright And Shiney Good at trials and from an in form stable. Can win with manners...Hill Of Peace another with tidy trial and workout form.

Selections:  Doubtless Bay (1),   Romanee (3),   Hot And Treacherous (2),    Marathon Man (8)


Race 5

Daisy Hill Manners a concern but should be right in the fight if she trots all the way....Kristofferson Another who can be tardy early. A big chance if he can lead early and tidy win last start....Magnafique always a place chance in these 2200m stands. Stable going well....Leesa Castleton big run last start and a repeat would take her close. First run the Auckland way around.

Race 6

Johnny Mac nice draw and a good chance to run top three in this field....Nurburgring looks the early leader and should be thereabouts with minimal attackers...Texas Tiger  has been performing well in classy fields. Should start favourite and can win...Double Up tricky draw to contend with but has ability. Chance at nice odds if he can get handy in the running.

Selections:  Texas Tiger (6),   Nurburgring (2),   Johnny Mac (1),    Double Up (7)


Race 7

She Reigns big run after breaking last start. Normally a good beginner and nice each way chance here....Tricky Ric good pipe-opener last start and will be improved.

Race 8

Major Jellis beaten favourite last start but had excuses. Should be improved and will start a hot favourite...Mister Slick good gate speed and will probably trail the favourite. Can run a place here....The Blue Beat winner last start but draw not so great. A chance to run into the placings if she can clear traffic....Milner Racing well but first look at the course. Chance to run in the money with a cosy run in transit.

Selections:  Major Jellis (4),   Mister Slick (3),   Milner (2),    The Blue Beat (9)


Race 9

Edamfast he races well on the track and could get home at value in the last. Each way claims....The Batmobile will probably start favourite here and is overdue a win. Good chance...Romanite out of form but has beaten similar fields in the past. No surprise to see him figure in the placings....Rainbow Wiri tidy after a break last start. Well drawn and has place claims here.

Selections:  Edamfast (9),   Romanite (8),   The Batmobile (5),   Rainbow Wiri (3)
