Trainer comments ahead of Friday’s meeting at Fairview:
No 1 Gold Pact put up a very good run first time on the Polytrack and we are hoping for another good run.
No 5 Lumos goes back in distance and I am trying Blinkers.
No 4 Masteroftheparty did not like the soft going last time out and I am hoping for a much better run.
No 6 Apollo Rock is having his first run on the Polytrack and I am hoping for a better run than last time out.
No 3 Katasha likes the Polytrack and has a reasonable draw. She will run another good, honest race.
No 6 Stylish Icon is a nice filly but she may find this distance a bit short.
No 5 Convention has a strong each-way chance.
No 8 Red Forest: Not today.
No 6 Ohsobright works so well but unfortunately has not been able to bring that to raceday.
No 10 Wylie’s Flame was a nice third last time out. I am trying her over a bit further and from a nice draw, she should run a good race.
No 1 Vanilla Orchid: you can ignore her penultimate start as she hurt herself. She is working very well and I am expecting a decent race from her.
No 3 Seattle Sound likes this course and distance. She may have just needed her last run so I am expecting a decent run from her.
No 6 Dettie will have Blinkers this time and I am hoping for a better run.
No 5 Oasis Queen : I am hoping she wins in this weak field.
No 8 Settlement Day : Not today
No 1 Desert Wisdom : Not today
No 5 Desert Chief has a good draw and Charles Ndlovu knows him well so I am hoping for an improved run.
No 6 Counting Stars is coming back from a bit of a break. He enjoys the Polytrack and could run a decent race.
No 8 Brevin won very well last time out but this is a much stronger race.
No 9 Fake News works very well and did run an improved race last time out. Both my runners must be included in all exotics.
No 4 Microbe has a few to beat but I am hoping for a place.
No 5 Mbali: Not today
No 11 Palace Queen was in a competitive field last time out. This is a weaker race so include her in the exotics.
No 12 Mistress Of Means is having the first run after her maiden win. She could run into the money
No 3 Excelero is looking fantastic and is coming off a very good win. He does not act like a nine-year-old and must be included in all exotics.
No 8 Omega Onslaught is in a very competitive race. I have put a claiming apprentice up. Include.
No 6 Dawnbreaker is working well.
No 9 Alwahsh is trying the Polytrack. He has been showing good work on this surface and a good run is expected.
No 1 Alpine Glacier is a nice horse and could suit the Polytrack.
No 4 Twin Falls ran a very good race last time so I am hoping for another good run.
No 9 Royal Agree was disappointing last time out and is not well drawn but I am hoping for a better run.
No 7 Di Me: you can put a line through his last run. He is working very well and I am expecting a much-improved run. He has an Eachway chance.
No 12 Pen-Chan; Not today.
