Video Replay Stars

Race 1 Number 4 Happy Hour

Is on the verge of a first win and last start suggests he is one to follow after enduring no luck in the home straight. He should have been fighting out the finish, instead he ran into a dead end up the inside rather than shifting out passing the 200m.

So, his eighth place beaten margin of 3 ¼ lengths has more merit to it than it reads and he can win this week.

Race 7 Number 4 Party Together

The video replay of his last start seventh place reveals a luckless trip. After vying for an inside run up the rails inside the 150m, he copped a nasty check approaching the 50m and badly blundered, extremely lucky to stay on all fours.

Prior to that run, he finished a promising fourth and third, and it shan’t be long until he finds the winner’s circle.


Sectional Time Stars

Race 3 Number 3 Best Alliance

Ran an improved race at his first start in Class 4 14 days ago, getting well back in the run from a wide draw, before unleashing the fastest for an eye-catching fifth, beaten 1 ½ lengths. Draws wide again but remains a chance.

Race 6 Number 3 Happy Alumni

Put the writing on the wall first-up 22 days ago after flashing home the second fastest in his race for an eye-catching second place. He was tardy out that night so it’s feasible he can settle handier if he jumps on terms.
