As the summer draws nearer the writer feels obliged to advise student investors of some guidelines to ensure a financially successful vacation
The progeny of "Pakistan II" beyond a mile, and "Mellay" in the sprints, should dominate stakes winners this year. "Copenhagen" two-year-olds and horses from "Fairs Fair" mares should not be overlooked. Two maidens to watch are "Tallow Gold" and "Merrydowns". "Fort Hagen" should have his best season this year in the role of pacemaker and "Simon de Montfort" would be a surprise in the Auckland Cup. Don't look for "Hermes" four-year-olds or "Le Filou" maidens. The Harris Family will eclipse the Skeltons this year. Watch W. Robinson and beware of K.Serni. Eric Ropiha will have more winners this year and G. I vil may have some more horses than riders later in the season.
I gladly offer two hot tips for beginners needing a start — don't miss "An Illusion" over hurdles and "Point of Order" in the big two miles.
See you at the TAB.
