Race 1 - Essendon Mitsubishi Handicap (1000 METRES):
FOLLOW: Jimenez - 3rd. Still look a little burly in condition but he was doing his best work late when forced back from a wide gate. Nice debut and is certainly one that can improve with the hit-out.
FORGIVE: Sanglier - 4th. Held up at various stages. Still don't think he really smacked the line when he got clean air but he's worth another chance.
Race 2 - 1PRINT Handicap (1600 METRES):
FOLLOW: Crafty Devil - 5th. Found these a little too sharp at a mile but was second off a good break and she's heading in the right direction. Is working towards peak fitness and is worth following in the right race at 2000m.
FORGIVE: Ma Jones - 2nd. Not having a lot of luck at the moment and just didn't get this run to suit up front. Going a little too well to not be pinching a race like this soon.
Race 3 - 1:20PM SAJ Fruits Handicap (1000 METRES):
FOLLOW: Multaja - 1st. Probably the one to follow from the whole meeting. Dominant return for this 3yo filly who put this handy field away in a few strides and ran very slick time for the day.
FORGIVE: Fidelia - 3rd. Smart debut debut win...
