RACE 11

3-Trolley – Finished well in a much-needed qualifier, this horse-for-the-course returns at an easier level & draws inside to work out a tailor made trip

 

9-Carrick – Gave him a shot last week & came up short with an ideal second over trip, moves outside, but figures to have more in his second start off the bench
