Mares look great prospects at Alexandra Park
It is the mares that give the Robert Dunn stable their best chance of success at Alexandra Park this evening. Cmeerock (in picture) is after a deserved first win in the north in Race Two, while Yagunnakissmeornot looks to continue a hot run of form in Race Seven.
Three win mare Cmeerock was battling for form through the autumn, while racing in some very good Addington fields. Good enough to earn a place in the Harness Jewels, she finally returned to something like her best form when placing second at Addington back at the end of June.
Since coming north she appears to have thrived and a last start second on the track last Friday night behind Utmost Delight suggests that she is a huge chance to break through for her first win on the track. From a handy draw and with top reinsman Maurice McKendry to drive she will get every chance and looks sure to start a warm favourite.
Later in the night, the very in form trotting mare Yagunnakissmeornot will be gunning for her 16th career win, all of these wins having come at Alexandra Park. While she took awhile to come to it under the tutelage of Robert, she has been in superlative form of late, with three wins and a narrow defeat in her last four starts.
To be driven by Jack MacKinnon this evening, Yagunnakissmeornot will start from a 40m handicap. Such is the way that she is stepping and performing at present she still looks a massive chance to record a further victory.
The other two stable runners at Alexandra Park, Lambros and Johnny White - both step out in Race Six. Based on his run last week, there is no reason why Johnny White will not be a hard horse to beat again, particularly from the inside draw. If he can hold up early, it will also give stablemate Lambros, drawn on his back, at least a place hope.
