Track Record Holder Returns To The Gardens Today

400 metre holder, Northern Echo returns to Newcastle today in race six, the Woy Woy Poultry Stake.

Trained at Pillar Valley near on the Coast of NSW by the highly respected , Northern Echo set the time standard of 22.46 for the short course circuit, which has not looked like getting breached despite class quality chasers winning over the new journey.

The son of and Silent Melody has won 11 races from 21 starts, including two out of three at the track and distance, with many good judges believing his record run will stand the test of time.

Northern Echo will start at prohibitive odds and his job has also been made easier with the scratching of Kiss Me Declan, leaving a vacant box on his inside and giving him a clearer run from the boxes. Also none of his rivals today have broken 23 seconds for the 400 metre journey.

One of the best clashes of the day appears to be race two; the Tooheys Stakes over 515 metres, where Marina's will tackle the talented, but injury plagued Beachley Lane.

However, the form analyst has made Marina's Limerick his best bet of the meeting, saying;

The form analyst has rated Clear Choice, box two in race eight, the Bacardi Stakes as the best value bet of the card, reporting;

“CLEAR CHOICE (2) ran an absolute bottler when beaten in flying time here last start, clearly the best run of his career, strikes an easier line up, the one to beat.”

You can bet live on tonight's bumper meeting at The Gardens with Iasbet or , with the first race of the early evening program scheduled to kick off at 3.47pm AEDT
