Last week the ring-around produced six winners including, Waitoto Express ($6.40), Doubleodeano ($6.10), and Lancewood Lizzie, who was backed in from an opening quote of $9 and ended up starting a warm favourite.
Let’s see what good oil we can dig up this week!
Cambridge - Thursday
Todd Mitchell: Expects Jovani, who was a luckless fresh-up sixth, to prove hard to beat from her ace alley - race three

Alexandra Park - Friday
