Little Friend

A Class 3 sprint over 1000m is one of the highlight races on the Saturday card with My Little Friend and Pure Force looking the likely favorites.

As has been the case for much of this and last season, horses drawn closest to the grandstand in the outside barriers have had a huge bias.

They simply get out in front and with others finding it impossible to peg them back.

Having said this, some of the recent results over this sprint distance have shown horses drawn lower draws coming off the pace and finishing like trains over the leading brigade.
