|RACE||(2) LARK HILL VETS MAIDEN (1206m)|
Eric reckons …
Twinklify races second-up from a spell at Pinjarra this afternoon and has trained on nicely since her eye-catching first-up effort at Belmont on August 19, when running on from last at the top of the straight to finish sixth, beaten only 2-1/4 lengths and clocking the second fastest last 600-metre sectional time. The only horse to finish quicker was Dreamtime Dancer, who went on to win at Belmont last Saturday.
Twinklify appears well placed dropping back into provincial maiden company this afternoon, however, her winning chances have been hindered by the barrier draw as she will jump from barrier 9 in the 10-horse field. This means, like last start, she will have to drift back in the field and will need a reasonable pace on upfront to be able to work her way into the race.
Will need a few things to go our way from the barrier draw, however, she is in good order and we believe she has improved since her first-up outing. Move On Notice (1) and Petite Charm (8) look the ones to beat and we think the $14.00 on offer for Twinklify on TABtouch this morning is slightly over the odds. Expecting her to be running on well in the straight to finish in the first five.
