The Shark goes looking for winners at the Addington meeting tonight.

Race 1

5 Kruizr: Too be fair, there’s been a whole lot of luck lately and most of it’s been bad. That should change up here. Will roll forward and look to bully them into submission.

2 Koromiko Eyre: Drops into amateur grade after tackling some strong assignments recently. Picks up a good draw and gets a hand hoop in the sulky which gives him a live chance of success.

10 Russian Express: String of seconds in the form line indicate confidence levels are well up. Trickier from the draw, but won’t die wondering here. Great place bet.

3 Barkley: Another coming into this grade off the back of strong efforts recently. Handy draw to work from after some tricky marbles so can certainly play a role in tonight’s assignment.

Selections: 5-2-10-3


Race 2

9 Ascalabus: Put them to the sword inside the final 800m last week and went down fighting by narrow margins. Fitter and won’t leave anything to chance here, just needs a clean beginning.

3 Prodigal Guinness: Handy family lines and a solid trial effort recently lead everything to pointing towards a strong run here on debut. Can give it a decent shake on debut.

13 Emmersyn Lee: Strong trial win recently and stable doesn’t usually step them out unless they can win. Tricky wee race to debut in but looks a strong each way chance.

6 Lennox Bromac: Caught the eye a bit with most recent trial. As long as the occasion doesn’t get to him, he’s a good  hope of causing a bit of an upset in this line up.

Selections: 9-3-13-6


Race 3

9 Rocknroll King: Had the sweet moves rolling out a long way from home on Sunday and most importantly kept the feet going smoothly. Dangerous when doing things right and nothing here to scare him.

8 Dark Rage: Handy type stepping back out for the new season here from a strike-rate stable. Not a super strong race to kick off in so needs plenty of respect.

12 Let’s Hustle: Kept coming at them late last week after getting back with no clear air. Won’t set the world on fire, but usual honest type of effort tonight should be expected.

4 All Nuts N Bolts: In good nick is the old boy, last run was very good. Will likely punch forward here and give them all a bit of cheek with the right man in the bike.

Selections: 9-8-12-4


Race 4

7 Palisade: Warmed up beautifully at Rangiora to finish second from well back fresh up. Should be stronger, fitter and more confident for tonight’s assignment. Looks a big winning chance.

9 The Player: Now in the Dunn stable and domiciled in the South. Good form around him throughout his career and a strong recent Rangiora trial has him primed for a big run here.

6 Eye Of The Tiger: Manners a big issue on debut, but there’s no hiding from what’s under the bonnet, its impressive. Needs to trot but can certainly give this a shake.

1 Maranatha Atlas: No superstar but good form on the board and manners seem solid too. Shouldn’t be too far away from them action and won’t do any extra work from the markers. Can place.

Selections: 7-9-6-1


Race 5

8 Fabrizio: They climbed out of the Cathedral ruins to back this one last week but it came unstuck with a mid-race gallop. Allow a shot at redemption here.

11 Marianna Bromac: Smart type back from a spell and strong in a recent trial. Will be ready to rock and roll here tonight and can push the favourite close.

3 Skreemr: Hasn’t has much luck in two starts to date and finally gets a decent marble. Should make the most of the opportunity and get right into the thick of it.

13 Manly Olsen: Has got better with each appearance at the races in the career to date. Tricky here from the draw. But will get the best chance to be competitive again. .

Selection: 8-11-3-13


Race 6

7 Madeleine Stowe: Given a bit of a freshen up after taking on some smart types last time out. Can bounce back here against a small even looking line up.

3 In Sequence: Orange chooses this one over #7 and the second effort behind a classy open class trotter last week at the trials suggest a big return to the races is on the cards tonight.

5 Trick Star: Genuine performer who will do everything right and if in the right spot turning for home can give them all a big fright.

6 Zeddie Marit: Two runs for two nothings so far this time in. Manners are always the key, with them here. It’s game on. But that’s a big if.

Selections: 7-3-5-6


Race 7

2 Glenthorne: In a really rich vein of form at the moment, as is his driver. Loves to be on the speed and drawn to be there tonight. Will take some running down.

1 Uptown Lady: Big run last time out and drawn to get the most sweet of trips here. Will follow the speed and look to reel them in late. Capable of doing it too.

8 Melton Reactor: Very impressive win first up for a new barn last time out. Low-flying in workouts prior to that. Can go on with it and take the step up here.

9 Mucho Macho Man: In these selections for nothing else other than he’s a first up runner for the Michael House stable, with Blair Orange in the bike. That strike-rate demands inclusion alone.

Selections: 2-1-8-9


Race 8

10 Copperhead Rose: Big win fresh up in junior grade last time out. Tough as old boots and won’t leave anything to chance in this line up and can run them into the dirt.

5 Only In America: Delivered in fine style two very strong performances to win last two starts. Manners seem good and will be looking to make them chase once again.

7 Rollova: Good in a fresh state last week and will be better for that run. Should be up to giving this a really good shake tonight with natural improvement.

9 Secret Bet: Not bad last week after doing a bit of work. In good nick and a swift beginning here makes the chances look even better.

Selections: 10-5-7-9


Race 9

8 Diana Harbour: Stand start put an end to the strong run of form last time out. Mobile conditions here change things considerably. Can get things back on track tonight.

6 Quaestor: Mobile racing is the key to this one at the moment, thrives on it. Good second last time out at Rangiora and will be right in the mix here again.

3 Crusher Collins: Will appreciate the barrier draw and the mobile and look to get handy and give them all something to chase here tonight. Can give a bit of cheek too.

9 Sugar Cane: Humbled down south last time out, but form here prior was good enough to be a player in this. Likely to look to get across them early and get onto the speed.

Selections: 8-6-3-9


Race 10

2 Invisible Girl: In great form at the moment and again a little unlucky last week. Nice draw and an even looking field make this race the perfect opportunity to get another win on the board.

1 Motoring Major: Has come back from the freshen up in fine fettle. Drawn to get the sweet trip and can make the most of it up the lane late in proceedings.

4 Matthew Eyre: Stepped up fresh up and delivered a strong performance to win then a little unlucky last time out. Will be right in the middle of things again tonight.

5 Good On Ya Kiwi: Better than the form lines probably suggest. Even field and a potentially positive drive will make things very interesting.

Selections: 2-1-4-5


BEST: 10 Copperhead Rose (Race 8)

NEXT: 8 Fabrizio (Race 5)

VALUE: 2 Invisible Girl (Race 10)
