Last week was a quiet one for the ring-around with just the two winners. However, T.A.B Bookmaker Steve Richardson did find us some value in the form of $8 and $2.50.
Let’s see what good oil the boys have found for us this week.
Forbury – Thursday
Matthew Williamson: Has opted for Monnay, who is the class horse of the field but and looks a chance despite his huge seventy metre handicap – race six.
Nathan Williamson: Rates the chances of Onedin Mach, who should have benefited off his fresh-up fourth. He looks the one to beat in race seven on the card.
Jonny Cox: Rates the chances of Homeforabubbly, who looks well placed in the ninth race on the card.
Alexandra Park – Friday
Simon Lawson: Has selected Westwind Flyer as his best bet of the week – race one.
Scott Phelan: Believes Pieces Of My Heart can go one better in the third race on the card.
Josh Dickie: Has opted for Katieellen Castleton, who would only need to do things right to win the fourth race.
Addington – Friday
Stephen Richardson (T.A.B): Has selected Hikoi, who got too far back last start before finishing strongly for fourth. Steps up to 2600m this week which should suit – race two.
David Butt: Rates the chances of Stingray, who returned to form last week with a nice win. He meets the same sort of field this week and looks a good each-way chance again - race five.
Ricky May: Has opted for the impressive Dalton Bromac. He looks the one they all have to beat in the same event – race five.
Craig Thornley: Has opted for Playaway, who was a fast finishing second last start. She looks a good each-way chance in the sixth race.
Mitchell Robertson (Harnesslink): Spell – race eight.
Ashburton – Sunday
Mark Jones: Expects smart filly Goodness Gracious Me to prove very hard to beat in the sixth race.
Ken Barron: Has opted for Change Time, who returns to mobile racing and has landed the plumb draw. She has produced big runs in her last two outings after missing the kick from standing starts and looks a good chance on Sunday – race eight.
John Dunn: Thinks stable newcomer Wesley Silcox, who trialled up nicely on Monday, can keep his unbeaten record intact – race eight.
