Northam Tips – July 16
Race 2 – 1:12PM HAHN SUPER DRY MAIDEN (1300 METRES)
JONO steps out in Race 2 of the day and should find this easier than his last start assignment that saw him finish 5th at Belmont over the 1400m. In that race, he settled in a midfield spot but couldn’t quite match it with the liked of Western Rhythm, finishing three lengths off the winner. He ran four lengths slower than overall benchmark in that race and was three lengths slower at his run prior when runner-up at Belmont over the 1400m. Those figures stack up well against these rivals and he has drawn to get the perfect time of it from barrier 2.
Race 4 – 2:22PM JAMES SQUIRES 150 LASHES MAIDEN (1600 METRES)
This looks to be the one for MR DELEGATOR to break through for his first career win. The three-year-old has had three starts and has finished runner-up in two of those. He resumed with a 4th at Belmont over the 1200m then stepped up to the 1400m before leading and going for home at the 200m when he was just overrun late by Western Rhythm. He ran just one length slower than overall benchmark in that race and a key to his chances here is the possibility of a slow tempo as he will push forward. With fitness under his belt, he should be ready to strike now.
Race 6 – 3:37PM EMU EXPORT HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
Willy Pike has seven rides on the eight-race programme and a key chance for the leading jockey is LAVISTARR. The four-year-old steps out at in a Class 3 and has had two runs this preparation for an 8th and a 4th at Belmont. She suffered interference when resuming and just faded on her run behind the handy Aberdeen Queen on July 1. Her previous third up runs have been pretty solid, winning one and finishing a four-length 9th last time when being tried over the 2200m at Belmont in a stronger race. She went nearly five lengths quicker than benchmark in her most recent run and from barrier 3, she will be given every possible chance by Pike.
