A look at Amberley
The stable have 4 runners in the Waitangi Day Amberley meeting, held on the grass at Rangiora. John takes a look at their chances:
Race 3 Escape The Fate - "Was a bit unlucky last start after an encouraging run the start before that. Is going near enough races at the moment and with any luck could be in the finish".
Race 6 Massimo - "Has been racing very well. Has had a bit of a let-up and no workouts or trials. May be a run short this time".
Race 8 Formidable - "Was very disappointing last time after a brief spell. The work since has been very good and we are definitely hoping for a much improved run".
Race 9 Kotare Kano - "Jase takes the reins again. As with last start the draw is not ideal. However, the horse is well and if he got a good tow into the race will certainly be running on".
John has 3 outside drives for the day in Elle Galleon R4, B Four a Fire R5 and Donna Belle in R7. Of these he thought that Donna Belle was a place chance and probably the best of the 3.
