Race Tip

A RUNWAY (2) doesn't boast the best winning strike rate but ran a nice race when fresh from a lay-off last time out, finishing second and beaten only 0.3 lengths over 3f213yards at this track (Dirt) after being in the firing line on the bend. Has started three times at this course and distance and is yet to miss the placings. Finds a suitable race and can play a major role. SR Set Weights EET DIAMOND (3) didn't make an impact at his last run before going for a lay-off on November 4 finishing ninth and beaten 5 lengths over 2f at Lone Star Park (Dirt). Has found the right race. FIRST SPESIAL (1) was out of the money when resuming from a lay-off last start over 3f213yards at this track, beaten 4 lengths. The engagement of Eliazar T Vera is noteworthy. Nicely placed to take this out. BROWN BANDIT (6) finished third last start at the first run back from a lay-off over 3f213yards at this track (Dirt), beaten 2.75 lengths. Fitter for that run. In the right race and is one of the better hopes.
