I’ll be looking at doing more with the GCTC in the future and this meeting Saturday looks to be a decent quality. Bets will obviously depend on what prices are put up so I will update after that happens. This will be final after 9am Sat.

RACE 1: * * *

Keen to see what happens here. From a good gate BLUE ODYSSEY would have been a bet for sure! Bit concerned about the gate but the race he comes out of looks a hot race.The winner is a short priced fav in a race in town Sat, the runner up and the 3rd horse have both won since also.

ICELANDER has shown a bit but hasn’t taken it to the races. Recent trial good after the gelding op. Can improve sharply. SANTIKI trialled well but might be a work in progress.

On Top: 5-BLUE ODYSSEY $2.60


RACE 2: * * *

Don’t want to be getting too involved here but have liked the way TOFFIE LADY has gone through the line over the shorter trips. Bit of a sharp jump out in trip might be a little query but feel she looks well placed and could have a small bet e/w if that price was bet.

On Top: 8-TOFFIE LADY $3.50


RACE 3: *

2,3,6,8, might be the main players here. Slight lean to LUVDISC and SHOPPING PARADISE. LUVDISC is a dry tracker and although well held last start was very good late and a clear 2nd best. No star but better than the record says. SHOPPING PARADISE has 2nd run for the Edmonds camp but had no luck at all last start. gets a bad gate and has to go back but can run on well here.

ARZU has been good up on speed and did a great job to only be beaten a small margin last start after going hard. Can lead this for a long way.

On Top: 8-LUVDISC $6/$2

Next Best: 3-ARZU,


RACE 4: * *

I’ve always had time for CHIKORITA but it’s been a one way relationship because he hasn’t paid back my faith. To be fair he should have nearly won at a good price fresh last time but the Fradd ride was horrible, he was then very good in a hot 3yr old race in town after that before losing form. Happy to go one more time, he is in a new stable and his best would win this but i’d love to see some confidence in the market.

On Top: 5-CHIKORITA $3.50


RACE 7: * *

Very hard race to line up and I’m not a fan of the benchmark races.

Happy to think the two at the top are in well, they have won 5 races each and they claim to get in extremely well against a bunch of non-winners.

Put LIMBO STAR on top, a little more consistent than the others but still doesn’t win out of turn. Comes out of a decent race last start, gets a good run in transit and well weighted with the claim.

CONSULAR sure to be around the money, the one win from 18 is my query, he’s a bit like me doing the ironing, just doesn’t want to. WHAKAREWAREWA was very good winning last start and has the most upside. Just taking on some old heads here.

*At the $11 I’m happy to have a small ew bet

On Top: 2-LIMBO STAR $11



Have a great weekend punters.
