Last week ring-around followers walked away with full pockets after Anthony Butt, Blair Orange, Jonny Cox, Ken Barron, Steve Richardson, Tim Williams, and Todd Mitchell, all tipped out winners.
Let’s see what the boys have rustled up for us this week.
Andrew Armour: Likes the chances of Dazzling Arden from her ace alley in the second race at Invercargill on Saturday.
Blair Orange: Has opted for Rocknroll Arden, who was a luckless second last start. She competes in the third race at Timaru (Addington) on Friday.
Craig Thornley: Thinks Gotta Grunter, who put in a couple of very tidy runs on the West Coast, is a good each-way chance in the sixth event at Timaru (Addington) on Friday.
Jim Curtin: Thinks the enigmatic Sunchita will make it two wins in quick succession on Sunday at Methven.
Jonny Cox: Rates Sunhaven Express as a strong each-way chance in the second race at Invercargill on Saturday.
Matthew Williamson: Rates the chances of Royal Squeeze in the first race at Invercargill on Saturday.
Mark Jones: Said he didn’t have an overly strong team in this week, but rated Goodness Gracious Me as the best of them. – Timaru (Addington), race five.
Nathan Williamson: Has a lot of time for I Smart and expects her to be hard to beat in the sixth race at Invercargill on Saturday.
Ricky May: Has opted for Pay Me Sush, who was a luckless second on debut. She competes in the sixth event at Timaru (Addington) on Friday.
Simon Lawson: Is expecting a bold performance from Ton Tine, who is a newcomer to his father’s stable – Alexandra Park, race five.
Steve Richardson (T.A.B): Thinks Djokovic, with manners, will prove too strong in the third race at Cambridge tonight.
Terry Chmiel: Is expecting a bold performance from Little Tess in the eighth race at Timaru (Addington) on Friday.
Tim Williams: likes the chances of Just A Delight in the seventh race at Invercargill on Saturday.
