Opportunities to nail down jewels spots

Impressive winners on the track last week, All Royal Gal and Little Rascal have the opportunity this week to confirm their positions in their Harness Jewels categories.

All Royal Gal looks the one to beat in Race 7. She is currently just outside the top 12, but a win, or a high placing tonight will thrust her to a more secure spot in the rankings. In what is a smallish field tonight, manners will be the key for the 4yr old Monarchy mare. Back in form, she looks sure to be driven confidently by John tonight.

A race earlier and Little Rascal meets a similar line-up to that he defeated last week. Placed 7th at present and comfortably inside the top 12, a top three finish tonight will only aid his cause. A wonderfully consistent horse, the Panspacificflight gelding has done a sterling job in his first season of racing. From a handy draw tonight, John has options as to go forward early, or to stay out of the early fight as he did last week.  He looks a big hope.

The other runner tonight at "the park" is Culinary Delight in Race 5. While drawn inside the second row, she may be well placed, drawn on the back of one of the likely favourites in Ctheballerina. Look for her to be running on strongly.
