Plainridge Racecourse Race 8 - Race 8 - 1609M

LIFES A PUZZLE (5) made it two wins from his last three outings two weeks ago, getting home by 4.5 metres over 1609m at this track. Meets a similar line up so he is capable of getting the job done again. Grade 2 winner EVER HOPING (1) ran sixth last start at this track over 1609m, beaten 7 metres. Expecting a very good run. TACK ROOM CHATTER (6) is a great chance after a string of sound recent performances, the latest a solid third at this track over 1609m. Hard to find fault. ALWAYS A MIKI (7) is worth some thought after his last-start fifth over 1609m at this track on June 3.

Grade 2 winner. Capable of better than we have seen lately. Last start 6th (Fr3) over 1609m at this track beaten 7 m by Natameri (1:49.00) in OPEN HC on June 3 at $7.70. The run prior 5th (Fr2) over 1609m at Yonkers Raceway beaten 3 m by Dunkin (1:53.00) in 3-6 YO OPN on May 22 at $22.50. Good enough to make amends in this line-up.

Not far away at the last couple starts; Finished 4.5 m fifth behind Natameri at this track over 1609m OPEN HC last start. Before that was beaten 4.5 metres second again at this track in NW10000CD on May 27. Racing well and worth each-way consideration.
