Ararat Race 4 - Mick O'brien Pace

KEMPSEYS DELIGHT (2) scored back-to-back wins last month and looks close to another success after he produced a good effort at his latest appearance, finishing third at Ballarat. No excuses from this advantageous draw. Top chance. THE TRI LINE (6) has been let down by manners of late but he has trialled nicely three times since the last outing. With manners can measure right up. SMART PLAY (1) broke and raced wide when placed last time. Should enjoy an economical run from this draw. Can be competitive again. WICHITA DANCE (4) is fitter for recent racing and has claims off a close second at Stawell two starts ago.

Last start was well beaten into sixth after showing early speed, behind Maverick Star at Mt Gambier over 1780m in a NR up to 46 on February 9 at $23. Raced better the start before that with a good run when 3rd (Fr4) over 1785m after showing early speed and racing wide at Stawell, beaten 24 m by Hez All Rock (2:11.60) in NR up to 51 on January 26 at $9.50. Very hard to beat from the inside draw.

Recent efforts haven't been up to his best. Backing up quickly after was restrained when 6th (Fr6) over 1780m at Mt Gambier beaten 18 m by Johnny Redcoat (2:15.40) in NR up to 40 on February 9 at $3.50. At the previous start 6th (Fr1) over 2190m after showing early pace at Mt Gambier, beaten 50 m by Victory George (2:44.60) in NR 46 to 53 on December 22 at $10.

Two back was beaten by 8 m finishing third behind Snazola at Maryborough over 1690m in a NR up to 50 on January 22 at $8.50. Then a handy effort when beaten by 1.1 m finishing second after being restrained, behind Jazzy Melea at Charlton over 2100m in a NR up to 50 on February 5 at $19. Well placed, should prove hard to beat.
