TOP SELECTION: Race 8, No. 5 FEARLESS FIRE - $4.20
In super touch at the moment and appears to be going as well as anything in this with Purton taking back the reigns tonight who had a win and placing on him in his prior two starts before his last start 5th when motoring home after just getting a little far back. May be able to get a few pairs closer in the run which could be the difference.
NEXT BEST: Race 6, No. 4 MUSIC ADDITION - $3.80
A promising galloper in Australia and just about won on debut in Hong Kong before a luckless second up performance where he never got on the track and may just been a little flat irrespective off the long lay-off. Key is tonight he finally draws a gate and this isn't the strongest Class 3 (second fav has had 6 attempts in this class for 1 placing).
EACH WAY: Race 5, No. 11 CHARITY GRAND - $8.00
Lightly raced and improving type who shouldn't be far off a peak performance and draws for a soft run throughout from gate 2. Wasn't all that far off the even money pop here second up and arguably has as much scope for improvement as anything else in this race. Looks overs at the each way price.
ROUGHIE: Race 4, No. 7 LONDON MASTER - $23.00
Doesn't win out of turn hence the big price but ...
