Last week was an average one for our trainers and drivers with only Anthony and David Butt tipping out winners, but luckily I pulled through for ring-around followers delivering with three winners from three selections. The best of them was my each-way bet of the week in The Peace Train who romped in at odds of $12.20 and $2.70
Let’s see if we can replicate that performance again this week.
Andrew Armour: Likes the chances of debutant Love Filly Dale. She goes around in the sixth race at Invercargill on Friday.
Blair Orange: Has been very brave this week and has tipped out superstar mare Adore Me to win at odds of $1.10.
Gavin Smith: Has opted for Back Pay as his bet of the week. He will compete in the tenth race at Oamaru on Saturday.
John Dunn: Thinks Elios is a good each-way bet in race twelve at Alexandra Park on Friday.
Josh Dickie: Was impressed with how Millie Sampson went at the workouts last week and thinks she can remain unbeaten in the Ladyship Stakes at Alexandra Park on Friday.
Jonny Cox: Likes the chances of Provocative Prince who looks a bold chance from his ace draw in race four at Oamaru on Saturday.
Ken Barron: Thinks Still Laughin can pick up some money in race four at Methven on Sunday.
Mark Jones: Has opted for Ready For Takeoff as his bet of the week. He looks a good chance in race eight at Oamaru.
Matthew Williamson: Has picked up the drive on The Bog and thinks she will prove very hard to beat in race three at Oamaru.
Nathan Williamson: Thinks the consistent Nickelson can resume on a winning note in race seven at Invercargill on Friday.
Ricky May: Is very bullish about the chances of Helena Jet in race four at Methven on Sunday.
Steve Richardson (T.A.B): Likes the chances of Jarcullembra in the Franklin Cup on Friday.
Simon Lawson: Rates the chances of Valencay in race seven at Cambridge tonight.
Todd Mitchell: Thinks his very smart trotter Prime Power can go back-to-back in race eight at Alexandra Park on Friday.
