Wednesday at Geelong

Race 7: Platinum Invador
6pm NZ time

“I can’t fault the horse, he’s in fantastic order, dead-set bucking his brands off. But we’re going to need luck. Of concern is where the tempo is going to come from and if it’s going to allow the backmarkers to get into it.”

Saturday at Te Rapa

Race 4: Lincoln King
2.20pm

“He’s going great guns. I’ve been very happy with him since his win at Matamata and he should go extremely well. I can’t see why he couldn’t win again.”

Sunday at Trentham

Race 3: Princess Amelie
1.16pm

“Samantha Wynne will ride her from a lovely draw of two. There are a couple of smart sprinters in here in Deerfield and Mascarpone but the track should get back to dead and be perfect for her. She galloped very well on the plough this morning. Safely through this race I will look at the Stewards for her next run.”

Race 4: Lincolns Gal
1.50pm

“Her last trial was disappointing but at least from a nice draw of two she will have every chance to step up and race well. Her work has been good but she has never been a great track worker so it’s hard to read too much into it. Her summer coat is through and, with two trials under her belt, she will have no excuses.”

Race 6: Kamanda Lincoln
3.05pm

“He has an awkward draw of 11 but I’m not too concerned as he got back at Hastings last week and really finished it off well. The track condition should be ideal for him and he has come through his run last week very well. This race fits in well before heading down south for his next two starts over cup week.”

Race 7: Lincoln Hills
3.44pm

“Barrier 12 is going to be a bit tricky but we have in-form Danielle Johnson on and I’m sure she will try and get cover somewhere. The field looks even and he certainly looks a good chance on paper, given he is going to get a nice track with the fire just out of it. His work has been great and with luck in the running he should be hard to beat.”

Race 9: Lincoln Fury
4.49pm

“Some of his fresh-up runs have been his best and he has had three jumpout/trials to get him ready to go 1600 metres first-up. He has worked well and his coat is bright so I am expecting a good run given he is going to get the fire out of the track and he has form at Trentham. Jonathan Riddell rides.
