No great confidence in the meeting but I do feel these below can all run well and give us a great sight.

Race 2 No.7-STANDING BEAR $4.20 (They have scratched from here to run at Canterbury??? I’m amazed)

I’d be very keen if this was 1350m. At 1200m I admit SCHWEID AS will be hard to run down. STANDING BEAR run up the back of them before the corner last start and then let down really well late. Should be able to land in the first 4-6 and with clear air should be as strong as anything late. No good thing but I’ve had a small bet.


Race 3 No’s.12-ENCIEH $4.80 ++ 13-MORE SHOTS $4.80

At the odds just having small bets on both. Feel ENCIEH can be the sharp improver. No luck all prep being caught wide etc. Gets the perfect run here and is definitely better than maiden grade. Similar story MORE SHOTS, will win races, has shown enough and is an improving type.


Race 6 No.4-WESTHAM $5.50

Have liked the runs since joining the Gollan camp. Should be able to lead these how he likes and a good claim for top apprentice. Leads for a long way and might be able to pinch it. The query is he might want further now. I’ve had a saver on BASANITE, not convinced this is his track but tipped him in a much harder race last start so if he wins I don’t want to lose on the race.
