Trainer/driver Kari Alapekkala:
”9 Hayai Chikara (V64-5) has won easy in his most recent races. He has a nice form and the post position today is good. He likes to work hard in races and he can race from any position. I expect him to finish in top three but I’ll not surprised if he claims the victory,” says Alapekkala.
Trainer Petri Salmela:
“11 Red Rose Sisu (V64-1) finished in second last time but that was against easier opposition. We will try to pocket along and can hopefully finish up there,” says Salmela.
”3 Caddie Girl (V64-6) had a tough last race but kept the high pace all the way cross the line. She has now raced twice and the form is increasing. The post position is good, she is a fast starter and hopefully we will reach the lead. This is our best chance of grabbing a win tonight.”
“9 Lawless Laday (V64-4) did very well last time and he has an increasing form. Today the opposition is good and our post position is bad. I’ll be satisfied if we’re able to finish in top four.”
“5 Tara Sisu (V64-5) was out in a tough race last time but had a good finish and I think his good form is remained. Today is up against decent opposition and we have a good post position. I think we will find a good position in the field and hopefully we are able to finish in top four.”
Jimmy Jonsson from stable Robert Bergh:
“2 Beautyson (V64-1) has a tight schedule at the moment. He is doing okay but not great. Today the opposition is good but I consider him as an outsider,” says Jonsson.
“10 Global Money (V64-3) did very well in the first race for our stable. He should be better today and we raise our expectations.”
“1 Electrifying (V64-6) hasn’t raced for a while. He had a tough schedule this winter and had a well-deserved layoff after that. Now he is doing well in training and the conditions seems perfect. Our only concern is that he maybe hasn’t top form.”
Trainer Svante Båth:
”10 Pledge Allegiance (V64-1) got a bad position in the field last time but did okay anyway. It feels like she is showing progress. She has the capacity to fight for the win in this class but she isn’t always trustful. If she manages to complete the race I think we will have a good chance to finish up front,” says Båth.
“15 Västerbo Loveboat (V64-3) didn’t do well last time and afterwards we found him injured. He was on a shorter layoff but has now done well in training for a while. I don’t really know if he has kept his good form and we’ll see what happens. Normally he should be fighting for the win with 10 Global Money.”
“5 Lotus Khan (V64-4) has also been on a layoff. He is now doing okay in training but it’s hard to tell about his chances today.”
Trainer Lauri Evijoki:
”7 Fore Candy (V64-6) has a bad post position and is up against tough opposition. He has done better in training this week than earlier. Last time he got boxed in but did well during those circumstances. He is not used to auto start and he is not a fast starter but he can beat many horses at the end. I won’t be surprised if he finish in top three,” says Evijoki.
Trainer/driver Marko Hakkarainen:
“13 Risoamaro Vip (V64-4) is strong and solid and I think he will do better this time. He has gone through tough training this winter and he seems fitter than last year. He did well in the seasonal debut and is showing improvement towards today,” says Hakkarainen.
“4 Super Lendalund (V64-5) has got a nice form and feels very fit. He broke stride last time but I can only blame myself for that one. He is a fast starter and he prefers to race in the lead. I expect him to finish up front.”
