Duo looking to achieve hat-tricks tonight
The great run at Alex Park over the past two weeks looks certain to continue tonight with stable runners All Royal Gal and Little Rascal looking to achieve hat-tricks.
While both runners do appear to meet stronger fields than what they have encountered over the past two weeks, they are in such good touch that they must be rated to add to their already impressive tally.
All Royal Gal (at $4.20 in the fixed odds 2.35pm) meets an even field, but she does look one of the main chances. Toughest to beat look to be Barry and San Diego Love. Now up to 8th on the Harness Jewels table she will be looking to further convince connections to have a crack at this year's jewels.
An uncharacteristically small field including just three opponents face Little Rascal in the last race tonight. From his one draw tonight, John will have options as and if he decides to hand up the lead. As often these races can turn into rather tame affairs, he may try for an end to end victory. Clearly the toughest to beat here looks to be the good mare Ideal Belle.
John looks to have a good book tonight with his outside drives of Makarewa Jake and Chevrons Champion both appearing good winning hopes.
