Expected weather: Shower or two and 30 degrees.
Expected track rating: Good 4 - Soft 5
Rail position: 10m
Race 5: 4.10pm – Salinger Handicap (1,800m) - Bet with TABtouch
7 FAIR FOOT (TABtouch opening price: $8)
Closed well behind Icecrusher last start.
Can draw a form line through Icecrusher who beat home Summit Trail ($6) at Pinjarra on December 10.
Fair Foot has drawn ideally in four and can step up in grade and win, in a pretty open race.
REPLAY - FAIR FOOT (3rd) - 30 December 2017 - Race 4 - 1500m - Ascot
Race 6: 4.40pm – PSC Insurance Handicap (1,500m) - Bet with TABtouch
11 OMINOUS WARNING (TABtouch opening price: $10)
Led and stuck on well last start behind Missile Launch. Was found to be lame post race as well.
Not a huge amount of speed in this event so can dictate and show some cheek in the home straight.
Mollie Clark’s claim sees this 7yo only carry 51.5kg.
REPLAY - OMINOUS WARNING (5th) - 23 December 2017 - Race 5 - 1600m - Ascot
Race 7: 5.15pm – Budget Car And Truck Rental Handicap (1,200m) - Bet with TABtouch
4 INVINCIBLE WARRIOR (TABtouch opening price: $21)
Has done very little in two runs back this prep, but didn’t do much in his first two back last prep either. He then went whoosh with a second, a first, and a second.
This is not an easy assignment and the gate stings a touch, but expecting a much-improved effort third-up, particularly with Tayla Stone’s claim seeing him carry just the 55kg.
REPLAY - INVINCIBLE WARRIOR (10th) 23 December 2017 - Race 8 - 1100m - Ascot
