Last week was just an average one for the ring-around with only John Dunn, and Sean McCaffrey tipping out winners, but this week I am sure it will bounce back to its brilliant best.
Anthony Butt: Has opted for the capable three-year-old Major Sam. He competes in the sixth race at Addington on Friday.
Blair Orange: Is extremely bullish about the chances of Someardensomewhere, who baring bad luck, will be winning the ninth race at Forbury Park on Sunday.
Craig Thornley: Thinks that if U Dream is on her best behaviour, she can win race five at Ashburton on Monday.
David Butt: Likes the chances of Stig, who will attempt to win his third Ashburton Trotters’ Flying Mile on Monday. His run last start had plenty of merit and from all reports, he has worked on good since.
Gavin Smith: Thinks All Shook Up is atleast an each-way chance in the first race at Ashburton on Monday.
John Dunn: Has opted for smart filly Venus Serena, who resumes in the seventh race at Forbury on Sunday.
Jonny Cox: Is torn between Washington Flier and Homeforabubbly. Both runners compete at Forbury on Sunday.
Joshua Dickie: Thinks Showtime Lady could offer some value in the second race at Alexandra Park.
Ken Barron: Rates the chances of Red Hot Toddy, who has been super in winning her last two starts. She looks the one in race sixth at Forbury Park.
Matthew Williamson: Is big on the chances of Yankee One, who made a super return to racing at Addington on October 11. Look out for him in the third race at Ashburton on Monday.
Nathan Williamson: Has opted for Livvy Franco, who looks a good each-way prospect from the ace draw in race six at Forbury Park on Sunday.
Ricky May: Found it hard to pick one in what is such a good week of racing, but in the end opted for Lady Godiva. She looks a great chance in race nine at Addington on Friday.
Sean McCaffrey: Who tipped a winner in his first attempt last week, has opted for Sodeska. The capable trotter will compete in race seven at Alexandra Park.
Simon Lawson: Has selected the consistent Hot Mach, who is set to do battle in the first race at Alexandra Park on Friday.
Steve Richardson (T.A.B): Likes the chances of Hi Jinx in the first race at Addington on Friday.
Todd Mitchell: Thinks Te Kawau should be winning the second race at Manawatu tonight.
Tim Williams: Is bullish about the chances of Brindy, who should have benefited greatly off his fresh-up third. He looks the one they all have to beat in the last race at Forbury on Sunday.
*More horses may be added to the ring-around later in the day.
