Leg 1 at 4:12pm: It’s a tricky looking field to get underway with a widespread of runners looking to be the best option to at least get through it. Twin Rivers keeps on delivering competitive efforts on this track and surely she must strike soon. Her wide draw here can assist her. Fireside Blaze continues to mix his races distances and has been doing an okay job in doing so. Pampest has upset on numerous occasions when dropping back into this class and he is quite capable of doing so again here. Despite numerous minor placings Imagination has yet to win a race on track – perhaps that can change here for her new trainer. And don’t overlook reserve runner Hair He Is in this event as he is leaping from the two trap and he is just the type who can poke his nose into contention here.
Leg 2: This is the feature race for today, the Thornton Auctions Auckland Derby final. Completely forget that Bigtime Kinvara raced here last Sunday, when he was comprehensively carved up when racing through the first turn. He will be departing from the seven trap here from where he can most certainly extract some revenge for last weeks defeat. Lochinvar Laredo looms as a sound chance simply because he will enjoy exiting from the two trap here. Overlook his latest Cambridge and Auckland outings. The visitor Cool Izmir has been producing solid recent efforts and he could make things interesting here if he can sniff out the early pace.
Leg 3: Thrilling Charge was completely carved up when racing into the first turn last Sunday. All he needs is a slice of early racing luck and he will be sighted standing on top of the podium again. Star Bound has been putting in solid efforts here lately and drawing the eight trap again suggests similar is likely to occur here. Off the others, Thrilling Punch delivered a competitive last start Cambridge effort, while Opawa Johnny has been starting better lately and he can feature by getting underway with the field here. And Smash Bang Win delivered a bold 520 metre effort in Wanganui on Friday, when downgrading.
Leg 4: Snicko would have derived benefit from his fresh-up sprint here last Sunday. Drawing the eight trap here can see him powering around the outer here. Bright Star continues to ping away smartly and she cannot be risked owing to that very healthy habit. Ain’t Know Saint squandered his winning claims last week by racing wide into the home straight. He charged home late then and a repeat of that effort can see him taking out this dash. The visitor Guru Goose is making his open class debut here and a repeat of his smart 18.36 second winning time in his only previous sprint here says he can feature here.
Leg 5: Lochinvar Vicini will start as a deserved warm favourite in this event and he can earn his open class stripes by winning here. Bad racing luck is his biggest danger and if he encounters any of that, then perhaps kennelmates Lachlan’s Cash or maybe Hustler can capitalize. Thrilling Blitz adds interest from his wide draw here for his new trainer, while the visiting Lil’ Miss Krunch adds some intrigue to this race. Mint Collision gains a race here from off the reserves bench. She is out-graded here, but in saying that she is likely to make effective use of the ace-trap here.
Leg 6: Bad State was the victim of some lousy racing luck at Cambridge on Thursday. He can extract his revenge in this sprint, despite drawing poorly. Bearly Possible is stepping up in class and she can handle that by using her known quick starting tactics. Percentage Man, although not entirely suited to the inside trap, is likely to power home late. Declaration delivered a rather bold sprint at Cambridge on Thursday, while the Pick6 blow out result could be provided by Austin Wild here.
