Race 6 – Garrard’s Horse And Hound J L Raith Memorial – This Group 3 feature event will see a total of $30,600 in prize money on the line. My Sweetchilliphilly will be the narrow favourite here in this feature event with a tight field. He won five straight races in the first half of last year before running fifth in his last start and then taking a break. He’ll resume here after a near 5 month spell and has won both of his first up runs prior. Will be fast out of the box and will take some catching. Arts Treasure ended his last campaign with a win and a second place. He’ll resume here after a 5 month break and has the class to push for a win. Major Occasion has won both of his races since resuming and is in peak form right now while Ideal Pleasure won first up last week, having ended his last campaign with back-to-back wins. Both will be in the mix.
Betting: My Sweetchilliphilly $3.30; Our Bare Knuckle $3.40; Arts Treasure $4.60; Major Occasion $7.50; Lady Chatto $9.00; Ideal Pleasure $9.50; Macey Jayde $9.50; War Dan Bad Girl $21.00; Love My Sister $26.00.
