Century of wins on horizon for the Robert Dunn stable
It has already been a really good season as far as wins go - 95 - and with a new seasonal earnings total $1.3 million. With some good chances again this weekend, another century of wins appears highly likely. John travels north to drive Sundees Son and Cmeerock, while Andre Poutama combines with the very in form Woodstone. Meanwhile at Addington tomorrow night, Diamonds N Cash contests a non tote Breeders Crown heat, while Every Option and Wrangler appear eachway hopes.
The trotters meet in Race Four at Auckland. Last time it was Woodstone that was much too good, but with a 25m head start Sundees Son may get his chance. At their last start, it was Woodstone that had the better run, coming into it strongly on the turn and running away, while Sundees Son was late clearing a pocket. While the early stages of the race are often nervous times for his backers, Sundees Son is handicapped to win the race, with Woodstone still the biggest threat and there to take advantage of any mistake by the stablemate.
Cmeerock is the only other stable runner in on the night at Auckland. She is drawn well, but after a big break away, you would expect that she will improve a lot with the run.
Down at Addington and Diamonds N Cash looks sure to be tough to beat in the non-tote.
Every Option had no luck last time, but is well drawn here for Mark Hurrell. He can leave the gate to get a forward position and is at least a place hope in a junior drivers heat.
Wrangler is the final runner of the night and to be driven by Matt. He has a tough draw to overcome in Race Five, but if he can do so, he is the one to beat.
