Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 3m, entire circuit
STARLA has had 2 x campaigns this far and on each occasion placed at this level when fresh. Then failed. She resumes here and has drawn perfectly. GISELLE ANNE will get back and will run home hard. Has been 4th at past 2 starts racing like this at this level. RESPECTFUL is expected to drive forward and lead. Trialed well and is on home track. Is on debut here.
This looks a nice race. AXE showed amazing speed in trial and was not knocked about when impressive 3rd behind WARP SPEED who hit the line very strongly. Both are on debut here and will be right in this off those respective trials. But the local horse, FARETTI, who resumes here off the inside draw looms largest. Looks a Saturday grade galloper.
An even bunch here. LENINGRAD led and fought on very well last start when runner up this grade. Home track advantage here and drawn to be in front for a long way. RANCHO NOTORIOUS is smart and looks like he’s getting smarter. Finished like a train to win a similar race last start and has Hughie on top here. Big show. BRING THE MAGIC is 3rd up and has shown form at this level. Should hit the line hard.
Tip: RANCH NOTORIOUS
JOHNNY VINCO came from midfield in a fast run race to win a BM 76 last start looking very strong. Only up 2kg for this and is 3rd up so rates very highly. MAID OF ORE has won twice recently in the bush but has Hughie on top. DUCHESS OF LENNOX was held up between runners and got her head up final stages when fast-finishing 4th at BM 70 level last start. Is 3rd up now and trip suits perfectly.
Tip: DUCHESS OF LENNOX
The bottom weighted horses look the better hopes in this. KAECILIUS is 3rd up here after a pair of 5th placings, both good runs. Did win 3rd up last campaign. LIVE THE MOMENT sat back in a strong and strongly run BM70 last start and rattled home for 2nd. Big show. CAMP FIRE looks very promising. Has had 3 x provincial starts to date and won 2 of them hitting the wire hard. Up in class here but has finishing power.
Tip: LIVE THE MOMENT
Strong field. SURREAL STEP is smart and is now just starting to show it. Worked home hard to win mdn last start in Melbourne and looks beautifully placed here. AVON RIVER is classy too and like the above colt, will sit back and hit the line hard. Both are Saturday grade gallopers. BIGBOYROY looks smart enough also. Had good run and went to line well for 2nd when resuming this grade last start. Chance.
Tip: SURREAL STEP
AUTUMN is a Saturday grade filly but they haven’t missed her with this 61kg. Did rocket home for 2nd this grade when resuming. On home track here. ALISON OF TUFFY is honest and is in form. Won similar race last start then placed again. REGIMENTAL BAND is smart and won mdn well. Is up to this grade.
Strong field. TRUMBULL is talented and was a winner when 2nd up last campaign. Is 2nd up here after a nice 3rd this level when resuming. VERSETTO is fast and should drive up and sit in the one, one for the trip. Is fit enough to finish the race off while LANIGERA has talent too and will hit the wire hard now 3rd up. Is in well at the weights. Chance.
