Stake Tan Tat Charger one the win by three the place. Box quinella 6,7,9,10.
No. 2 MISS WILSON drops significantly in class after her recent eighth, beaten three lengths, at Group 2 level. She now will be at peak fitness and is in the right race today. No. 4 A Little Loose is lightly raced and primed to run well fresh. She competed at Group 3 level before going for a spell and trialled strongly over 1190m at Cranbourne last Monday. No. 9 Jezzabba has the winkers back on and was competitive against males when placed here on February 26. No. 6 Giddyup has improved at eaxh of her four starts after a long spell and cthrashed them at Bendigo so can go right on with it here.
Back Miss Wilson to win. Quinella 2 with 4,9.
This could be a clash of the emergencies, No. 14 PRESCIENCE and No. 12 Sir Sagamore. Prescience, who has ear muffs on today, over-raced and lost his good spot early when first up at Sandown. Then, when starting to surge, he was blocked for room. He should have won. Sir Sagamore made a long, sweeping run here on February 26 and hit the front on the home turn. He was tracked and nailed by an emerging Mick Kent horse but beat the others out of sight. No. 1 Global Assault is racing keenly and drops in grade on his latest effort here. No. 6 Tom Puss is very fit now and should be able to push forward and sit on the pace.
Back Prescience to win. Save on Sir Sagamore. Quinella 12,14.
No. 8 THAMES COURT led all the way to win at Pakenham on debut, then started racing competitively against the likes of Badawiya, Don't Doubt Mamma and Sacred Eye. She is well placed for her return in this. No. 14 Scatter Blast is a very smart young horse. After his amazing debut win at Dunkeld, coming from near last, he jumped to 78 grade and closed hard for third to Cool,Snitzel and Heatherly. They were both at 1000 m and he should be better suited at 1200 m. The firm track form of No. 3 Land Of Freedom and his latest Lakeside win was full of authority. No. 5 Dane Thunder has drawn the inside and bumped into an emerging galloper in Buckler at Sale on February 21.
Box quinella 3,8,14. Take those three in the quaddie.
The gear changes will be telling for No. 4 SUPER HAZE who is the lightly raced runner with plenty of upside. He bolted in his maiden at Ballarat, then was inclined to get his head too high when trying to chase hard at Hillside, February 26. He has a noseroll on today and the blinkers off. He will appreciate the step up to 2040m. No. 2 Heavy has blitzed a trial by eight lengths since his too bad to be true run at Ballarat. He was progressing well until then. No. 5 Three Points fought hard hard when narrowly beaten over 1900m at Kilmore and is ready to win again. There are other chances including the easy last start winner No. 12 Faraja and the tough No. 7 London Fog.
Back Super Haze to win. Quinella 4 with 2,5,12 for varying units.
No. 4 PINDAN PEARL was second up at Flemington in stronger class than this and obliged to race back and wide in a leader dominated race. She will be fitter and boasts very good Mooned Valley form. No. 5 Tears Of Joy was under constant pressure in front here on February 19 when third to No. 11 Rather Heroic who will not be at the lucrative odds we got about her that night. She is right in the mix again but Tears Of Joy has a 3 kg weight swing and has the inside gate. No. 8 Dubrovnik has gradually improved this campaign and is back in winning form.
Stake Pindan Pearl one the win by three the place. Box quinella and trifecta 4,5,8,11.
No. 4 HARBOUR GREY has been freshened since two excellent runs over 1400m at Flemington in January. He is lightly raced, consistent and ran a close second at his only start here. This is a deep race and a few of the better chances are poorly drawn. An awkward start and a lack of room early in the straight probably cost No. 12 Caprese a win here on February 26. Oliver stays with him. No. 7 Magicus tasted defeat for the first time when a fighting second at Hillside at 78 level. His previous run was a convincing win here. No. 3 Walk This Way has won four from 10 and was impressive first up in this class at Pakenham. No. 5 Jetello ran on hard over 1000m at Hillside and gets up to a more suitable distance.
Stake Harbour Grey one by three.
Leg 1) 3,8,14
Leg 2) 2,4
Leg 3) 4,5,8,11
Leg 4) 3,4,5,7,11,12
