Only two meetings on the NAR Circuit for Monday, with Kawasaki and Nagoya playing host to 12 and 11-race cards respectively. Both meetings offer competitive racing right throughout the card, but we think we've found some bets for Monday racing.
Kawasaki Race 9 Number 1: Sarasa One
Sarasa One is looking for three wins in-a-row and finds a very suitable race to do so. He was forced to work hard from an outside draw his last two starts and still scored on both occasions. He now draws an inside barrier for the first time in a while and should be able to hold a forward position. Horse number 11 Isa Chil Ukiuki will be coming at him late, but we're hoping SARASA ONE can hold on for the victory.
Nagoya Race 7 Number 10: Autumn Song
Autumn Song hasn't won a race in 13 starts, but we believe he strikes a very winnable race today. His recent efforts have been good despite not winning, and the fact Makoto Okabe sticks with this son of Kizuna is a very positive sign. He will get back from the wide draw and be spotting his main dangers Number 3 Hinaarare and Number 7 Suzu Cynara a start, but we think he can be running over the top of them late.
Nagoya Race 8 Number 4: Gold Snow
This filly by The Factor was no match for the winner last time out, but she in turn put a big margin on the third-placed horse. She draws well again this start and Tomomori Syotaro knows the filly well. Her main dangers are Number 6 Shinojimaniyorasai and Number 5 Yamacho Voice, but they will most likely be sitting behind her in the run. Gold Snow loves this distance and can win the eighth event at Nagoya.
