Last week the ring-around produced five winners including Kowhai Sunrise (Mark Jones), who romped in at odds of $6.10.
Let’s see what racings leading lads have got for us this week.
Forbury Park – Thursday
Gavin Smith & David Butt: Have both opted for Eagles Nest, who is a lot better than his form suggests. However, he does run into a couple of smart types in Media Queen and Smokin Bird – race three.
Stephen McNally: Has opted for Bonora Boy who will also attempt to break maidens in the third event.
Nathan Williamson: Thinks the consistent Nickelson will get some money again tonight – race four.
