Race 5 – Bankstown Trotting Recreational Club M.H. Treuer Memorial – This Group 2 headline event will see a total of $50,000 in prize money on the line. My General Lee will start as the favourite despite a less than brilliant run of late. He’s too good to be struggling for too long and is expected to bounce back to top form here. Stening has had 2 wins in his 3 starts since resuming from a 2 month break. His wins were by comfortable margins of at least 5 lengths. If he can continue that form here, he will be too much for this field. Pachacuti is the form trotter in this race, having scored three straight second place results in a row after his win a month ago. He was well beaten in his last run but is capable of getting the win in this race. Spare Me Days had a solid last start win, while Saloon Passage and Lochinver have both featured in all their runs since resuming recently and are expected to be in the mix.
Betting: My General Lee $3.90; Stening $4.40; Pachacuti $4.80; Little Rascal $7.50; Blazin N Cullen $7.50; Condagen $10.00; Spare Me Days $10.00; Better Than Max $12.00; Saloon Passage $12.00; Lochinvar $19.00; Rykov Leis $41.00.
