Last week the ring-around produced six winners, including my bet of the week and my two each-way bets of the week.
Others to tip out winners were Jonny Cox, Steve Richardson, and Ken Barron.
Let’s see if some of the trainers and drivers can hold up their end of the bargain this week!
Forbury – Thursday
Dexter Dunn: Has surprisingly opted for Phat Freddy’s Drop, who will look to break maidens in the first race on the card.
Jonny Cox: Rates Mako Banner as a very good each-way chance in race three. Quinella with Katy Perry perhaps?
Craig Thornley: Was pleased with U Can I Can at the recent Motukarara workouts - race four
Mark Jones: Expects Ultimate CC to prove very hard to beat in the ninth race on the card
Terry Chmiel: Is expecting a bold performance from Angus T Jones in the ninth race.
Alexandra Park - Friday
Scott Phelan: Expects Cheers Kathy to be very hard to roll in the first race on the card.
Simon Lawson: Has opted for impressive last start winner Destination Moon - race six
Todd Mitchell: Is a very big fan of Mach's Gladiator, and expects him to be hard to roll in the ninth race on the card.
Addington - Friday
Blair Orange: Is bullish about the chances of Paramount Queen, who looks very well placed in race two.
Anthony Butt: Thinks Thebestlove is a big chance in the NZ Trotting Derby - race four
David Butt: Warns punters not to drop One Over Da Moon, who also competes in the NZ Trotting Derby - race four
Steve Richardson (T.A.B): Expects Locharburn to prove to strong in the NZ Derby - race nine
Ken Barron: Rates the chances of capable two-year-old filly Livura, who has drawn well for Friday’s assignment - race twelve
Gavin Smith: Thinks Dana Duke could be well over the odds in the same event - race twelve
Invercargill - Sunday
Matthew Williamson: Has opted for the capable yet enigmatic Bet's Sun, who would only need to trot to win the first race on the card.
Tim Williams: Thinks Just A Delight, who has finished second in her last three outings, is overdue a winning turn - race ten
Andrew Armour Thinks Blanco, who has raced well since joining the barn of Tom Kilkelly, is a good each-way chance in race eleven.
Motukarara – Sunday
Ricky May: Believes Franco Salisbury will take all sorts of beating from his ace draw – race seven.
Mitchell Robertson (Harnesslink):
Char Do Neigh – Invercargill, race five
Dream Gal – Forbury Park, race five
Emmanuel – Addington, race three
Ranfurly Rulz – Addington, race one
