Expert tips for Harstad, Saturday 1/15/2022


Race 2 - Harstad

5 Florican Plane is back after a short break but trainer Trond Myhre uses to have his horses well prepared. Banker. 7 Netanica has throat problems last season. Resumes from a long spell but is possible directly if well prepared. Has good skills. 4 Wayne Brogård is consistent and good and faces nice conditions money-wise. Without a mistake he is good enough to win this. 1 Thai Apollo won four races last season and is developing well. With the right start he could find the lead here. Will not be easy to beat then.

Race 4 - Harstad

4 Drivlomen makes his debut in the northern part of Norway and is interesting. Has earlier shown good skills and set a 1.30,9-time on Årjäng in August. Is fast enough to beat these opponents. 2 Stjerne Kompis won a premium race a short while ago. Is strong and uses to keep up the pace well. Challenger without a mistake. 6 Mellem Jerven was a bit up and down last year but put in a good effort on Boden two starts back. Can normally open fast and is an early choice here. 7 Helmin Eldi put in three good performances on Harstad at the end of last year and impress in the last one.

6 Standpoint's Joker showed great form at the end of last season and deserves a victory.

Has to be considered early together with Patrick Larsen. 4 Blackjack Bonanza is consistent and good and got defeated by Lonely Tilly.
