Our runners this week: How our trainers rate them

Al Barnes

Al’s comments

Friday night at Albion Park

Race 6: Double Or Nothing
7.25pm NZ time

“We’re keeping him fresh and he’s doing well. He doesn’t need a lot of work - he showed that by winning last week, coming off a bit of a break. He’ll have improved with the run and from five on the front row he’ll go forward and be hard to beat.”

Race 7: Sir Tiger
8pm NZ time

“I’m expecting him to go well this week and he should definitely run in three from the ace draw. He’s getting out of the gate well and should be quick enough to hold his position without using him too much.”

Friday night at Auckland

Race 2: Man Of Action
6.27pm

“The ones he beat the other night weren’t much chop so he’ll have to step up. I didn’t think he was that impressive but he might just be one of those horses who don’t try too hard when they’re being attacked. He might be better off racing off the pace. He could beat them again but I couldn’t label him.”

Race 8: Classie Reactor
9.28pm

“He just burned too hard early at Cambridge and beat himself. He’s obviously not a tough horse. I think he’ll be a much better proposition if he’s saved for one run - and he’s got the speed to excel doing that.”
