HAMILTON - Alex Marsh
Race 4, No 1 ORAKEI OVERLORD
One of the toughest cards I've seen in Victoria in a while but we've landed on this Paddy Payne runner. The ex Kiwi was good here first up behind Mawzoona off two trials and should be ready to go now at 1400m. Mawzoona has since placed at Sandown in a BM70. This is a really average race and he's drawn far better than his two biggest dangers here.
Race 7, No 8 SKILLED HUNTER
Weiry has certainly got him fit now and the step up to 2200m will do him no harm. Been whacking away well in this grade and should get a few more favors then the top market elects. As I said it's a tough day here but he ticks the boxes for a Weir runner in a donkey derby and he's at each way odds of $7.50 around the the favorites.
