Three good chances on a Sunday afternoon at Addington

The rain has disappeared and it looks set to be a super afternoon in the sun at Addington. We have three nice chances today starting with Yuri in Race One.

Race One - Yuri

First up last Thursday, Yuri stepped brilliantly from the unruly and was in front after 400m. However, a series of lead changes from the 1800m saw Yuri awkwardly placed four back the markers with a lap to go. Able to get off the markers and onto the back of favourite Eurokash from the 700m, Yuri gained a good drag into the race from there. On the day, the two year old Eurokash was much too good, winning by five and a half lengths, but Yuri was equally as good, finishing nearly seven lengths in front of Build A Bridge, a rival today.

While there are some new runners today, including Makura for the very in-form Hope stable, we think that a repeat of last week's first up run, will see Yuri very hard to beat today for his owners Colin and Nancy Hair.

Race Six - Wyatt Waller

Wyatt Waller was first up for the best part of eight months when resuming at Addington last Friday. He went around in a very strong maiden field, in a race won impressively by Dhaulagiri. While well drawn on that occasion, Wyatt Waller had to be steadied coming off the gate, after pacing roughly early. He still managed to find a nice spot in the raunning, three back on the markers. Into the clear at the 200m, Wyatt Waller finished the race with real purpose to be beaten just over a length by Dhaulagiri, with Twilight Bromac splitting the pair.

The draw is no help today - the outside of the second line over the 1980m trip - and he is likely to be giving expected favourite Crackator a start at some point, but we think that Wyatt Waller must still regarded as an eachway hope, particularly if the tempo of the race is in his favour.

Race Eight - Prodigal Guinness

Prodigal Guinness started off his current campaign, with a nice run for second last Thursday. He had shown a lot more consistent form in his last campaign and a good first up run was expected. He did not disappoint, storming home for second behind Terror The Christian. He is back behind the mobile gate today and takes on a handy field in junior drivers company with Korbyn Newman to drive. If he races up to last week's run, he must be a strong chance, but will need some luck from a wide draw. Providing he gets the required run, he must be at least a place chance. Sagano, Tiebreaker and Jaffa Josh are the three hardest to beat.
