Thursday Provincial racing in Western Australia will be run at Northam this week where the track is currently in the Soft 5 range.

The rail is in the 6m position from the 1600m to the 400m and a cutaway applies in the straight.


Northam Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Joyrize

With placing's around genuine city class gallopers in Silkinize and Mia Dolce in her first two career starts in Aoril 2019, it's hard to believe that this filly hasn't broken her maiden in seven subsequent outings.

After a flat effort when resuming at Ascot back in May, she was runner-up to an impressive Fair Justice on June 1 when safely edging out Palaver in the run to the line who won his next start.

A wide gate cost her finishing closer to what looks a handy one in Not My Fight on June 18 but was clearly the pick of the chasers behind the winner.

From barrier five, William Pike can land a few pairs closer in the run early and in one of the weaker maidens Joyrize has seen, she should get every chance.


Northam Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Zip Zam Zoom

Fred Kersley prepares this lightly-raced four-year-old who's clearly had a few issues over the journey but he's always showed potential.

A son of Viscount, Zip Zam Zoom closed off strongly in his first two career starts early in 2018 and off a long spell, was knocking on the door in all three attempts late in 2019 around some useful company.

Them performances included two runner-up performances and prior to being spelled, was beaten just over a length at Ascot when bettering the likes of Zephyr Queen (six-time winner) and Bedouin Belle (three-time winner).

That reads superbly for a Provincial Maiden and off a five-length trial victory in June, Zip Zam Zoom has strong credentials as the best bet at Northam this Thursday.


Northam Value Bet - Race 6 No. 5 American Soul

The last two efforts from this four-year-old over the mile have indicated that he's searching for this staying journey he now gets out over here fourth-up.

After finding the 1400m too sharp first-up over seven furlongs, he whacked away fairly on May 21 before making plenty of ground for fourth in a Class 3 at Pinjarra on May 31.

The gap between runs is a decent query, however, the step up in distance suggests the work has been put into him in that time frame and he does drop in grade to a Class 1.

American Soul did show an ability to race on the speed which was evident when breaking his maiden so jockey Ryan Hill has options and each way in this field, is capable of figuring.
