Race 7 Townsville 7.15 Love Is Blind (7/4)
Talented sort who has won three of his last four; beat main market rival in good style on penultimate start before chasing home nice prospect The Harrovian when second last time; more to come and rates the one to beat.
We head to Townsville to kick off the Tracker Double on Thursday and LOVE IS BLIND looks the one to stick with in Race 7. He is progressive and just bumped into a smart individual last time. Prior to that he put away main market rival Tiger Can and I’m confident he’ll confirm that form here. The pair could easily finish 1-2 again. Tabatha Miss made all at Townsville last time and is a filly going the right way so she also comes into the reckoning, probably for third spot.
Race 6 Pinjarra 8.52 On Red Alert (9/4)
Good looking chestnut who is lightly raced for his age; needed the run when never landing a blow on return here before improving to finish second at Bunbury last time, beaten just a nose; can improve again and looks sure to go close.
Our second tracker horse runs at Pinjarra on Thursday and ON RED ALERT looks worth sticking with despite the wide draw. He ran a cracker when second at Bunbury last time and if building on that will be tough to hold in what appears to be an easier contest. Costa Del Santo is looming as a danger with his reappearance run under his belt and has to be feared while Michelle Ma Belle is another to note after running well here when last seen. Amillionite is no back number but will need to show more to trouble the favourite.
Here you will find our overnight Aussie Notebook Double. It pays 15/2 on Thursday and hopefully we can bounce back with a couple of winners.
