RACE 1

Central and North Burnett Times - - GAYNDAH RACES -

AASHIQ’S form has been patchy this year but the six-year-old geld­ing’s last race at 1400m was a win at the Su­rat Dig­gers Race Club on Septem­ber 20.

The Rod­ney Hay-trained Em­peror will be one to watch after a third place and a win in his past two races. Both races were at 1400m so the six-year-old will be primed for the Ken O’Dowd Hand­i­cap over the same dis­tance.

If Brown Doubt gets a run, it will be look­ing to keep its win­ning way in the North Bur­nett after win­ning at Monto in Au­gust. The six-year-old geld­ing has a record of 18-4:5:2.
