Lady Luck came to our aid yesterday as Krackatara looked likely to win before kindly deciding not to take off at the final flight. As for today – well, if you’ve ever seen a worse Friday card in your life I’d be very surprised. The turf Flat season has started, but three of today’s four meetings are on artificial surfaces. Words fail me!

So for our only investment of the day, we turn to a hunter chase. Normally I’d avoid these, but with pro trainers more heavily involved the outcomes are becoming more interesting.
