NO. 6 OMORFI KOPELLA: First time starter for John Sadler was also going down the hill in her debut. She settled in the back of this 10 horse field until the top of the lane when unleashing a big, late, wide run to pick up the place in what was a huge try.
NO. 9 DOELING: First time starter for trainer Tom Proctor was sent down the hill in this very wide open straight maiden race, one we will keep an eagle eye on as it could be key. Cut the corner at the right hand curve but had to be checked off heels and that cost her dearly. Split horses in the stretch and surged late just missing by a ½ length in what was a super try first out of the box. She may want to go long but we will be on her, long or short, on the grass next time out. $$$
NO. 3 VAVOOM: Is just that, a horse with some big early speed. He showed it, but could not hold off the 2-1 chalk who got up at the wire to get him by a ½ length. Was more than six lengths clear of the rest in this 12 horse field and will be one tough guy to run down in his next start. We will be singling in the picks.
