When GRACIDA (R6 No. 2)
is in form you can bet up with confidence and he
bring his hat-trick with a win in the class five. He bounced back to form July with a runaway win at the Sunshine Coast and followed that up with a narrow win over very high quality class five field at the same circuit. He’s 2kg on the win but Jeff Lloyd will rate him well in front and he should be too nippy for these.
NEVER SO SIRIUS (R1 No. 2)
is one of the few Matt Dunn Sydney raiders who couldn’t come home with a TAB Highway race last start, but her previous two were full of merit and she looks well placed in a small class three field tomorrow. She kicked off this prep with a fast finishing victory over 1100m then changed tack, leading all the way at Ballina over the longer trip. She won’t be far from speed here and will take a power of beating.
