Race 4 (1:47pm local/3:47pm AEST) – WA SALES CLASSIC 2YO FILLIES QUALIFYING HEAT 2 – 1730m
Tenniele Erin is a top-class two-year-old filly that looks extremely hard to beat from barrier four. She should start odds on and deserves to be that quote.
Lady De La Renta has heaps of ability and her debut run was very good; except for breaking stride with 100m left to travel.
From barrier five, she may have to sit parked or could get one-one cover behind Ella Gant Player. She appeals on an each-way basis at $16 and $3.25.
Princess Major should have plenty to offer at the end of her race and Cheeseacracker has been racing well and has place claims.
Race 6 (3:03pm local/5:03pm AEST) – 3YO WESTBRED MS PACE – 2130m
Rocknroll Beachboy has opened an odds-on favourite in the early market and that is a very shaky quote for a horse that could be crossed at the start. In addition, he isn’t the best horse in the race and there are a number of dangers.
The horse that I like the most is Anvil Rollover but I don’t think he gets around the track that well. We will see today as he will be in the moving line and not on the pegline like last start when second to Michael Joseph who won the WA Derby Consolation last Friday night.
That is good form for a race of this nature and Chris Voak has elected to drive the Russell Eddy-trained pacer in preference to Kerrin Joseph and Back To The Beach.
Anvil Rollover can be dangerous if he can get a sit close to the speed. Ideally, he will track Im Entitled throughout and then look to sprint past them late.
Race 8 (4:10pm local/6:10pm AEST) – MS PACE – 2130m
Estocada looks the horse to beat but that has been said a few times in recent races for this horse and he has found one or two better. We will be hoping that’s the case today.
Saleahs Comand deserves to win again after a host of top-three finishes, including two wins from his past seven starts.
From barrier 10 he will need some luck but if he can manoeuvre into the clear down the back straight he should be running home strongly.
Dame Puissant is the other leading chance in the race and Bandar looks an improver from barrier two.
