Delve deeply and Strike A Fortune

There can be rich pickings to be had from time to time in the bottom grade of local racing, and Strike A Fortune is heading in that direction.


When he does run in Class Six - and that should be before the end of the season - he is worth following.


Off a weight of 116 pounds in Class Five last night, he made up good ground late in the 1,650-metre event.


He was kept wide but that was a reasonable ploy. What was more significant was that Strike A Fortune was able to make up ground on what was clearly a leader's track.


This five-year-old New Zealand import is definitely a hope in Class Six.


There are no prizes for suggesting that Super Boy may now win a race after his bold showing in the third event.


Pink Diamond was just a trifle underdone when tackling the second event, but ran a very stout race. He has three runs behind him now, and is ready to win for trainer Ricky P. F. Yiu.
