Race 2 Sunshine Coast 3.35 More Than Likely (5/2)
Looked like she would benefit from the experience when fourth on debut here in January; needed the run in soft ground on return; expected to be a lot sharper now and extra yardage ideal; should tuck in off the pace before striking late.
We head to Sunshine Coast in the early hours of Wednesday morning as we look to get the Aussie Notebook Double off to a flyer and MORE THAN LIKELY makes plenty of appeal for Natalie McCall. This filly should know a lot more now with two runs under her belt and with fitness on side she can open her account under Daniel Griffin. Kokopo Kitty ran well when third at Doomben last time and looks one of the dangers. Windchill needs to do better but a low gate coupled with the blinkers could help her step forward.
Race 6 Ascot 8.35 Western King (15/8)
Plenty went wrong when down the field here last month but quickly put that right sweeping through to win by a head at the line here latest; can build on that now back up in trip and looks a danger to all with William Pike in the saddle.
We stick with last time out winner WESTERN KING in Race 6 at Ascot on Wednesday morning. He made up a lot of ground to win last time and looks to be heading in the right direction. The extra yardage can help here and everything suggests he will be tough to beat again under Pike. Stafford’s Lad will find this easier than what he’s been contesting lately and looms as a danger while Admiral Promo has been in good form winning and placing at Bunbury in his last two starts so also comes into the reckoning.
Here you will find our overnight Aussie Notebook Double. It pays 9/1 on Wednesday and hopefully we can bounce back with a couple of winners.
