Playing By The Rules
Our Racing Manager, Emma Reeves, aids us with programming and identifies who she thinks is the best placed horse each weekend.

Hawaii Five Oh, Saturday 30th March, Rosehill Gardens, Race 6:
I was tempted to go with a couple of my old friends in Serpentine and Anode but they aren't perfectly weighted with one or two of their rivals so I'm going to cast my net a little wider and go with Hawaii Five Oh. This is a better example of us having to be flexible with a long range plan versus one following the script beautifully. Last preparation he was a revelation as a sprinter and did an incredible job against the best weight-for-age sprinters in the country. This time in he has simply returned a little dourer so rather than start him last week in the Group 1 The Galaxy over 1100 metres, he begins his campaign here. This is the most winnable level he has raced in since this time last year so if he brings his recent form, and that's the million dollar question, he won't be beaten.
