GOING: HEAVY 8

Look Sharp P&D Hcp (C4) 950m

Track: HEAVY 8   Scattered Thunderstorms (Max: 32)   Rail: True Entire Course. (Pent: 5.61).  

Chat Time looks the most likely to push forward and take up the lead. I WANNA BREAK FREE comes into the race off strong recent form and was a last start winner over 1000m at Townsville, his third in a row. Capable of another strong showing today and looks the one they have to beat. LUSHAN has been freshened after not having a great deal of luck at this track last time out over 950m. Rarely too far away and has shown enough to suggest he can feature. CHAT TIME next best off a placing and will take running down.  SUGGESTED PLAY: I Wanna Break Free for the win.

Last run rolled along in front setting the pace and then edged out 3rd of 9 starters at Townsville Hcp (60) Jan 16 over 1000m, 2-3/4 len behind Bella Sash with 54.5kg. The run before couldn't go on with it; 5th of 8 runners at Mackay (Bm55) Jan 9 over 1050m, 1/2 len behind Ragnar Lodbrok carrying 57kg. Worth another chance.
