FONNER PARK

10.00ZIBBY TOO has improved with each of her three starts and has finished a solid third on her past two runs, both over this trip. She should be capable of another step forward and looks the one to beat.

10.27

EMMAS SILVER ROSE has been beaten in a photo on her past two outings over this course and distance. They were both in this grade and she should be bang there again from a fair draw.

10.54

WALKER’S BULLET is taking a drop down the grades in a race that looks modest even for little Fonner Park. He has been doing his best work at the finish over six furlongs so this longer trip should be ideal.

11.21

TRASK showed plenty of promise on his first spin around Fonner Park earlier this month. He was just collared in the final few yards after putting up a good fight. This race looks a grade below that so a repeat should be more than good enough given he has won three of his nine starts over this trip.

11.48

ELUSIVE BLUEBOY didn’t get the best of luck in running when third here last time and takes a welcome drop in class. He steps back up to his favourite distance where he has a record of three wins and five places from seven outings. A repeat of his latest effort would put him right in the picture.

12.15

CHACE B A LADY showed a real finishing kick to get up right on the line over four furlongs here last time out. That effort was all the better because she didn’t get the clearest of runs through. This longer trip should be fine as she’s kept to the same grade as that success.

12.42

CHOIR DIRECTOR looks overpriced in a wide open contest. He has had to come wide on his past two runs around this tight track, which made life difficult. He has his lowest stall number for a while today and can make the most of it for a top trainer and jockey team.

1.09

SHADY LANE has been blowing away her rivals in slightly softer races than this and was impressive in making it four wins in past starts here last time. It wouldn’t take massive improvement to keep the winning streak going over her favourite distance.

1.36

THUNDER BOX has been running well despite having traffic problems. He was forced way out wide before coming home strongly in fourth last time on the back of an unlucky second. Stepping up in distance will give him more time to get out of trouble and the yard has a cracking record with quick returners like this.
