This is our 3rd edition of “Horse’s to look out for at Forbury Park”, last time we featured Oamaru Junior Driver Brad Williamson.

That night Williamson picked up a treble, in 3 consecutive races when he saluted with Winners Shout ($6.10), Elusive Flight ($11.50) and Caesar Rocks who provided the upset of the night at $56.10.

This week, Christchurch based Jonny Cox will run us through his 8 drives.

Race 1: 5 The Toiler – G & J Knight – “He’s a new addition to the Knight team; obviously his form is average so he’s probably a watch horse first up for them”

Race 2: 6 Jetenara – K Barclay – “She won her maiden well last start, and while she steps up a grade the field lacks standout form, she’s a nice each way chance with a good trip”

Race 3: 2 The High Achiever – G & J Knight – “They had a wee bit of a wrap on this fella, he’s only a 2yo but the draw helps, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was fighting out the finish”

Race 4: 2 Shies Good – W Heads – “She was super first up, but we had no luck last time. Another one that draw well and she can definitely win this”

Race 5: 4 Strathmores Charm – W Heads – “Obviously the back markers will be hard to beat, but he has good manners and could sneak into a place or top4 spot”

Race 8:  6 Ma Cille – W Heads – “Her last couple of runs have put the writing on the wall, from the draw we will look to get handy, she’s my best chance of the night”

Race 9: 9 Superior Desire – M House – “He won nicely at the workouts, but he will probably need the run and it’s a hard draw to play with”

Race 10: 4 The Charging Moa – G & J Knight - “There are a couple of 3yo’s in this race who look tough to beat”

Ma Cille's last start 3rd.

Even from a tricky draw, the Brent White trained Shards Halo looks tough to beat in the Junior Drivers race.

Brad Williamson jumps aboard and with the speed maps showing that she should be no worse then 3 back the fence, the 4yo America Ideal mare will be looking to slice through gaps and pick up the penalty free win.

Earlier on in the night, Elusive Flight looks poised to add victory number 2 from just the 3 start for Westwood Beach trainer Graeme Anderson.

Known as a leading improver of horses, Anderson also had Laughing Cavalier in Race 9, and with the services of leading driver Dexter Dunn again, the 5yo Mach Three gelding is another looking to double up for Anderson.

Elusive Flight's last start 2nd.
