Niigata 11 Race ( Niigata Kinen)
#4 Smart Gear... The fastest finishing kicks of 32.8, 33.8, 34.4 but still just two 3rds to show for it. The only glimmer of a better result is that on the same track last year ( August 16th 1600 Class) he ran the fastest stretch of his career at 32.1 BUT still only managed a second place showing. Getting 5.8 in the win pool so I will dive in one more time on this proverbial late commer.
#6 Tosho Scirocco...Simply an odds play here. Was 6.4 in the G2 AJC back in January finishing 3rd. Has remained visible on the tote board being in the top 5 choices for the last three races but hasn't produced. Finished 5th in his last race but the final time /fractions weren't that bad to render him odds of over 30.0 which he'll probably get. I'll take it.
