Warwick Farm Race 4, No 2 WINE BUSH
Poor winning strike rate but just think this four year old is an out and out stayer. Off the bit chasing earlier than you would've liked last start at Rosehill over 1900m but continued to grind away from a good distance back and finished third in the end. The step up to 2200m looks ideal, drops 2kg off that run and Bowman sticks. Looks his right race. $3.80.
Warwick Farm Race 6, No 1 RAIDEN
Still does a bit wrong but liked that they've taken him back through his grades on the provincial circuit and once he jumped with them last start it was game over. You'll have your heart in mouth moments with him but he's going in the right direction. This isn't an overly deep race and we're getting an each way price about him. $8.00.
Bendigo Race 3, No 2 VON CLASSIC HERO
Been racing out of his grade and wasn't disgraced behind the talented Silvera at Flemington last start. Drops back to a BM64 and has a fitness edge on a lot of these. Really well placed in this and 1.5kg claim gives him some relief in a really winnable event. $4.60.
