#5 RED HOT NICC (8) - P Stokes
RED HOT NICC looks to have come back in really good order. He was quietly ridden in a Jun 24 jump out when 2nd but has then demolished the field in Heat 8 on Jul 7, winning by 7L in the third fastest time of the day and only 0.15s off the quickest. He was extremely hard held until the bend and then he opened up as he was revved up, showing he had a bit on this lot. He started $3.20 on debut but had bilateral shin soreness, so forgive that run and look for him to return now in better order.
Super by #11 BON’S A PEARLA but she seems to have a habit of being slowly away. She was away terribly back on Dec 7 and was then put away. She returned in Heat 6 on Jul 5 where she was away slowly (not as bad as previously) to sit at the rear of the field but was way too speedy throughout as she weaved through to take the lead and win well in the end considering her start. Want to see another bit of work and her improve that start.
