Our runners this week: How our trainers rate them

Friday night at Auckland

Race 1: Tommy Lincoln
6.26pm

“They went fast last week and he was drilled down the back so he did well to hang on for second. He’s drawn to lead and will go another good race.”

Race 2: Apieceoflou
6.56pm

“If he gets a good trip, he’s the one to beat. Being hung out last week didn’t help but he still whacked away for second. He’s not as strong as he will be but he’s as honest as can be.”

Race 2: Franco Nandor
6.56pm

“He raced up like he was going to beat them last week but you have to forgive him as he hadn’t raced for a while.”

Race 4: Revitalise
7.56pm

“He was in a bit of strife for a couple of weeks but we’ve done a fair bit with his foot, we’ve swum him for the last week, and he’s training super. I’m very happy with him. He just needs some luck from the inside of the second row.”

Saturday night at Albion Park

Race 7: Northview Hustler
11.47pm NZ time

“We haven’t had him this sound for ages and he’s been sharp in training this week. His last three races have been really good and he’ll go forward and hopefully get the one-one behind Colt Thirty One. “They’ll know he’s alive if he’s on their backs.”
