Race 1 - Wellington R.C Handicap (1200 METRES):
FOLLOW: Ocean Knight - 1st. Probably the one to follow out of the whole meeting and the sectionals backed up what an outstanding debut this was. Was going through his gears nicely at the back of the field before having this race won at the 200m. Smart win.
FORGIVE: Sizzleme - 2nd. No match for the winner but found the line better than anything else once the gap presented. She'll be more suited over a longer trip.
Race 2 - Hyderabad R.C Handicap (1400 METRES):
FOLLOW: Boxachocolates - 2nd. Nice Australian debut by this ex Kiwi who was beaten by a rock hard fit galloper with a 3kg claim. Only a 78 rater and he's won up to 2000m, there should be plenty of options for him this prep, especially if he keeps finding soft tracks.
FORGIVE: Jacqui's Joy - 4th. Loomed like the winner at the 300m then just peaked a little but picked up fairly again over the last 100m. Two runs to begin this prep have been solid and if placed in something a little easier, then she can win third up.
Race 3 - Thomas North Handicap (1600 METRES):
FOLLOW: Sheezadashing - 2nd. Both the first two were impressive but I thought this...
