RACE 1
8-5-11-9

This race all points southwards if backing the favourites. I’ll be going wide for a big Quartet payout and wouldn’t be surprised if “Fast” Eddie Lai, who desperately needs a winner if he’s not to get lost in the shuffle, striking on Thunderstroke (5) like AC/DC’s Thunderstrike.

RACE 4

With just one ride on Wednesday, The Gnasher won’t let a winning ride like Jack’s Gem (5) getaway from him, Batman.

RACE 6
9-5-1-3

Happy Agility will be all the rage, but I’ll be backing Raging Bull (9) to deliver the knockout punch and another winner for The Gnasher.

RACE 7
1-7-8-2

Perpetual Treasure will be a short priced favourite, but this is no one act affair.

RACE 8

Logically, this should be a race between the 1 and 6, but since when has logic mattered in horse racing?
