The Shark goes looking for Sunday afternoon winners in Dunedin where it’s Forbury Park Trotting Club action.


Race 1

7 Justan’s Sister: Caught on the wrong foot last week when they said go and that was the end of it. Two runners prior good. Go again.

6 The Night Sweats: Boomed home late at Gore last week to finish second. Not one you can back with confidence, but still a big hope.

1 Be Bee Lass: No dice first up for the House stable, Orange sticks with the ship though. We probably should too.

13 Cuddy Trouble: Giving them a head start here, but does have more upside than most and better for the fresh up run.

Selections: 7-6-1-13


Race 2

14 Standout: That was an impressive performance last time out. Still a bit to learn, but there is a motor there. Go again.

11 Pocket Watch: Have to respect the stable and the driver and this is easier than recent efforts. Should be going close.

1 Miss Behavin: First up for Kim Butt after a Gavelhouse purchase. Looks better than a maiden and comes up with a good draw.

2 The Cruise Missile: Joins the Jonny Cox team, has looked handy on occasions and change in scenery might really turn things around.

Selections: 14-11-1-2


Race 3

4 Chevron Flies: Purdon and Dalgety first starter. Nice in workouts and trials and a handy draw. Yes please.

10 With The Stars: Probably should have won a maiden last campaign, but time might have been a good thing. Respect the stable.

8 Minnelli Smile: All around it at the moment and comes up with a tough draw here. Going better than most though, so respected.

2 Milliethepiper: Astute stable wouldn’t be down here for nothing. Good draw and can turn things around from debut effort.

Selections: 4-10-8-2


Race 4

1 Glen Elgin Stara: Nice run on debut for third in behind a pretty handy pacer. Good draw and should be on the speed here.

3 Plutonium: First starter from the Barron barn with Blair Orange in the bike. Workouts and trials ok, big watch on debut.

15 Jive: Form behind Silk should stand up nicely, prepared to give another shot from the second line here with a bit of luck.

4 Huckabee: One who is definitely better than a maiden and gets a nice draw to work with here. Can pay a dividend.

Selections: 1-3-15-4


Race 5

7 Imran Khan: Freshened after a stellar run of form late last season. Dominion Handicap beckons, needs to step up again here.

3 Neverneverland: Best is very smart, but not always on show. Small field here looks good and can certainly give some cheek.

6 Robbie Royale: Touch below his best recently, but too good to drop. Can get into this and give them plenty to think about.

4 That’s The Story: Genuine performer who is always an each way form on the board and always a chance.

Selections: 7-3-6-4


Race 6

9 Ideal Asset: Chances generally rely on luck and although a tricky looking draw, it could work out sweet. Can hammer them late.

7 Frosty Reception: Escapes some strong recent company for this assignment and although draw wide can unleash on them.

12 First Son: More ability than most in this but one who does require the right kind of run. Looking for things to pan out nicely.

2 Opawa Mach: Will relish not being up the road and a genuine grinder who will keep coming at them if given the opportunity.

Selections: 9-7-12-2


Race 7

8 She’s A Rebel: Tough ask last time out but classy and should be better for the experience. Good enough to round this field up.

10 Donegal Mary Francis: Fresh up from a spell and did some nice things last campaign. Right man in the bike to make things happen.

5 Hannity: Better than the form might suggest. Just needs thing to go right early and he’s a big chance of causing the upset here.

1 Wolf West: Handy run fresh up and should be better for it. Operates from a good draw here and will give a sight from the inside.

Selections: 8-10-5-1


Race 8

3 Bono Hest: Jump and run sort of type who looks well suited to this kind of race. Goes well here too, ticks a few boxes at a price.

9 She Aint No Angel: Has a huge motor, but a bag of tricks too. It all hinges on the manners and whether or not they come to the party.

1 Sierra Gold: Nice maiden winner who won’t mind the step up in grade. No surprise to see a big effort in this field today.

7 Crusher Collins: No go last time out, but better than that and this is the kind of race she can get into. Leave out at your peril.

Selections: 3-9-1-7


Race 9

3 Spirit Of St Louis: Wow, that’s about all you can say about the debut effort. Looks destined for better things and should win again.

9 Arden Roanoke: Top wins in two runs back from a spell, but does face a tricky draw here. Might be too far off #3 turning for home.

2 Hurricane Banner: Going to get the sweet trip it would appear and with that has to be a royal chance of getting a slice of the action.

6 Balius: Form behind Franco Santino looks good for a race like this and Tomlinson takes the reins on this one. That’s a pointer.

Selections: 3-9-2-6


BEST: 4 Chevron Flies (Race 3)

NEXT: 3 Spirit Of St Louis (Race 9)

VALUE: 3 Bono Hest (Race 8)
