Mahogany Row looks the one to beat in his return to the races under new trainer Allan Oshyer. The son of Barcia Bale won by six lengths over the course and distance back in December where he clocked a time of 30.08 seconds, and with a win first-up to his name already, I’m expecting him to return in good order.
Blame Brendan has shown great improvement over the last three weeks and looks set to peak here in the fifth at Albion Park. The son of My Bro Fabio has placed in back-to-back starts over the course and distance where he went around at double-figure odds. Overall, he’s placed in six of his nine starts over the 600m on this track without winning, leaving him a little over the odds at the current quote.
Banjo’s Issue looks a decent each-way shout in the fifth at Albion Park with six wins over the distance to his name. The son of Sulzanti struggled in the late stages when sixth behind One To Win last week but should take plenty of improvement away. He has the advantage of early gate speed over the rest of the field and with a little luck, should come close.
Happy to fade the favourite Talgai Warrior in the race considering he’s stepping up to the distance for only the second time. Instead, I’m looking to side with Hara’s Olaf, who placed over the 520m in his last start at Albion Park. The son of Fernando Bale won three starts back at this venue and is boxed to land up on the speed. Should be right in the finish in a very tough race
