Slow track for today’s racing

THOSE having a bet on today’s race meeting at Greenwattle will need to look for horses with form on at least a slow track.

After the recent rain and lack of drying weather, the track will be affected and the rail will be out eight metres to today’s race meeting.

The first of eight races is set down for 1pm.

Local trainer Sharyn Trolove has Joey’s Star entered for the 1200 metre maiden (race two) and he ran a great race behind Emmooki’s Star, who has since won again during the week.

Archie’s Dream, trained by Michael Kent and to be ridden by Noel Callow, in this race is a good performer on wet tracks.

Cliff Murray’s maidens include Biscay Diamond and Prospector’s Luck with the latter performing well in two starts to date.

Race five includes the Ian Hutchins-trained Uno No, who was placed last start behind Tanjil on a similar rated track and should relish the conditions.

Pass The Post (Julie Scott) and Villa Girl (Paul and Tracey Templeton) have both won on soft tracks and should go well again in race six.

In the final event Stringy, trained by Andrew Murray, who won over 1400m at his previous start at Sale, is stepping up to 1700 metres but with Zabeel in the pedigree that should not be a problem.

The consistent Bitey Horsey-trained by Cliff Murray is also contesting this race.
