Race 1. (13:15) Ladbroke It! Handicap (64) 1600m

1 Door To Door (Bet Now: $2.40) looks a progressive animal for Patrick Payne and confident he can measure up in town. He was just miles too good for them at Wangaratta last start, helped by a cool, patient steer from Aitken. Hopefully can use gate one, sit handy and prove hard to beat.


4 Mountain Range (Bet Now: $2.05) is the one with the most upside of this bunch you would think but whether it’s too soon for him, not sure. But his two career runs have been super, really catching the eye on debut at Pakenham before lapping up the mud at Sale. Bred to eat up the mile and in the right camp.

Long Shot

2 Freedom Escape (Bet Now: $4.60) is a Paul Preusker trained son of Hallowed Crown that comes to town off the back of a sharp maiden win on his home track at Horsham. I’m always wary of Horsham form translating to metro level but small field helps and gets Johnny Allen steering.

Race 2. (13:50) Ladbrokes Switch Plate 1600m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.

I’m hoping I am right in thinking the $6.50 opening price for 8 Alavista (Bet Now: $4.60) was luxurious. Tempest Charm is nominated for Wednesday but hopefully it runs here for no massive deductions. Alavista has looked quite drunk and lost in the run in both career outings, most notably last start at Wangaratta but warmed to the task nicely late. Blinkers on with a jockey upgrade, I think she’s a great bet.


10 Tempest Charm (Bet Now: $2.10) has the best form of this bunch, clearly, but she has had a few chances to break the maiden tag. I was keen on her chances at this track last time out but she got back to near last in the run and was never a factor given the race shape. Hard to beat if she can sit closer in the run.

Long Shot

3 Yes Yeah Always (Bet Now: $8.50) is a first four contender. Somewhat unwanted in betting fresh over 1400m at Sale but stuck to the task pretty well in defeat I thought in a good form race I think when third to Mountain Range, who goes around as a key chance in the first, so you’ll know by jump time here if the form is indeed strong.

Race 3. (14:25) Ladbrokes Easy Form Plate 1300m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

6 Matao Ma (Bet Now: $1.70) is a bit on the short side, but can’t get away from him. Was quite keen on his chances when resuming under the lights at the Valley. Had the suck run behind the speed and loomed to win. Just couldn’t quite get there when a narrow second to Treporti. Fitter for the run, maps super again…he’s the safe option.


2 Ocean Chief (Bet Now: $3.40) can bounce back. Michael Moroney trained former Kiwi that made his Australian debut over 1400m here when wide no cover on speed for the trip. He tried hard but condition just gave way late when fourth to Can’t Go Wong in what has become a red hot form race. Fitter, he’s hard to beat.

Long Shot

3 Turf Flyer (Bet Now: $31.00) hasn’t been too bad in two runs back from a spell. Latest run came last week at Yarra Valley when on speed and tried hard, but couldn’t quite finish it off when fourth to Il Braccio in what I think will be a good form reference. Gets a rise in trip, hard fit, first four threat.

Race 4. (15:00) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Handicap (Class 1) 1300m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

3 Attractable (Bet Now: $2.70) on top and does look the best on the program. I’m not sure he beat much fresh in a Mornington maiden, but he made an absolute mess of them from the front and ran solid time in winning. Draws wide, but with J Kah on, she’ll take her time with this gelding in sliding across on speed and proving tough to get past.


4 Get On The Gas (Bet Now: $4.00) has returned in good order for Lloyd Kennewell. Resumed over 1200m at the Valley and didn’t have the best of luck in the run, but that said, I don’t think he was troubling impressive winner Clemenceau, but battled on strongly for second when eventually clear. He’s a threat.

Long Shot

1 Sugar And Sweet (Bet Now: $13.00) is an interesting runner. Odds on pop when debuting at Horsham and despite doing work out wide, he was miles too good for them in such a sharp first up effort. This is clearly a harder assignment here, but I think he has a decent engine under the hood.

Race 5. (15:35) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Handicap (64) 2400m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

4 Annunciate (Bet Now: $3.30) is the straight bat option but he is a little while between wins. On speed at this track/distance last time out and battled away well albeit was safely held by a very much in form Tigertiger. Gets a big jockey upgrade with J Kah on and is bursting to win one.


10 Tatalina (Bet Now: $6.00) can win, but it certainly won’t be with my coin on because she has let me down badly on several occasions, including last start at Morphettville where she looked a good thing on paper but was quite plain when fourth. The saving grace is the rise to 2400m. She seems one paced so a rise in trip is a positive.

Long Shot

5 Sir Peter (Bet Now: $8.50) is a one batter that will stay all day. That was the case when an on speed winner over 2400m at Geelong last time. He was there to be run down, but found plenty under pressure and on the line was drawing clear. Harder here, but has the right racing pattern.

Race 6. (16:10) Ladbrokes Blended Bets Handicap (64) 1800m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

Fitter and up in trip, I like 8 Gate Crash (Bet Now: $2.35) for Patrick Payne. Resumed over the mile here where he got a fair way back in the run and had to make a sustained run, looming to win but had to settle for a second to the hard fit mare Defiant Diva. That should bring him right on for this very winnable 1800m assignment.


7 Wisaka (Bet Now: $5.50) should be suited up to 1800m for Michael Moroney. Resumed over 1500m here where he came with a well timed run under Jamie Mott and for the most part, was looking the winner, but the tight photo went the way of Commanche Brave. Better for that under the belt, 1800m from a soft gate looks a good set up.

Long Shot

1 Cuban State (Bet Now: $10.00) is racing like 1800m suits. Looked all over a winner last time out over the mile at Morphettville but he was bloused on the peg by some Opperman magic aboard Picaroon. Goes up 6kg in weight despite a depth rise IMO, so that looks ugly, but progressive and in form.

Race 7. (16:45) Tobin Brothers Celebrating Lives Handicap (64) 1400m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

13 Logan Street Lion (Bet Now: $3.70) on top in what looks a pretty solid 64 race. Had a three run Autumn prep to start his career and showed good promise. Won in good style on debut and was close up in two subsequent outings. If he can use the good draw, he’ll take beating.


15 Oughton (Bet Now: $6.00) is a Team Hawkes trained colt that has done little wrong in a two start career. Caught the eye from the back on debut at Geelong before racing here where they rode him positive, leading, and fought hard to win. Fending off Port Louis isn’t a difficult task to be fair, but he’s lightly raced with upside.

Long Shot

2 Saint Of Katowice (Bet Now: $12.00) is better suited over further, but he’s a genuine animal for the Maher/Eustace camp that resumes. Hasn’t raced since August 25 when a strong third over the mile here on the Lakeside track. Hasn’t really run a bad race for the stable. Just needs luck from the gate to be competitive.

Race 8. (17:20) IVE > Print Handicap (64 1000m

* Above offers may only be available to select customers.
Back Me

10 Strategy (Bet Now: $11.00) for me in the get out. Just looks an ideal set up for him. He can sit wide with cover, be within range 400m out, peel to clear air and finish over the top. That’s what he did four back when winning at Morphettville on the Parks track. Three subsequent runs have been just fair but it looks a good set up for him to bounce back.


On paper, this looks a prep run for 1 Beehunter (Bet Now: $11.00). But he’s a quality horse when right, this is the easiest race he has contested in a long time and he gets in very well after the claim, so I wouldn’t be totally shocked if the Sads combo had him ready to go, but watch the market.

Long Shot

1000m is on the short side for 14 Yosemite (Bet Now: $11.00) but she too has quality about her when right. Hasn’t really fired a shot for a little while but thought she moved quite well in a recent Cranbourne jumpout. Likely gets back to near last from the gate but will be strong at the end.
