MY GOLDEN EAGLE

OVERVIEW: JUNIOR WARFARE (4) began quickly from a similar draw to find the lead, got away with a cheap second quarter (33.1) and had a good kick left at the finish when he scored easily at Cobram last week. He is drawn to lead again so he is capable of taking the next step forward. MY GOLDEN EAGLE (8) is resuming since a second at Echuca in August and is very awkwardly drawn but he has been performing nicely at the trials. He won at his latest Kilmore trial over the smart mare Holi Starzzz so he should be finding the line strongly. TASMA FLASH (9) has been placed in all of his five starts since returning from a long spell and broke through for deserved victory at Bendigo last week, where he led throughout. He drops back to the second line but he is strong enough to be in the finish. MISTER ARTIKULATE (7) is working up to a win after being placed in four of his past five starts. He settled down last of the twelve runners, trailed up out three horses wide from the 700m (3-3) and was very wide on the final corner when second (1m) behind Terror of Locksley last outing. He is terribly drawn but should be hitting the line strongly.

OVERVIEW: LOMBO IDLE BELIEF (4) pressed forward to find the lead at the 1300m, got away with a slow second quarter (32.6) and had a good kick left at the finish when he scored comfortably at Cobram. He is a bold front running type and is likely to be driven in a forward manner again. ROSLYN GAYE (8) is a fast mare, which should be finishing fast via the sprint lane. She settled four back on the outside and was held up for a run over the concluding stages when an unlucky eighth last outing and her effort prior was against the Metropolitan class. WEMADE FREO (1) led out then took a trail behind LOMBO IDLE BELIEF (4) and had his chance when second at Cobram last outing. He will probably adopt the same tactics and hope some pressure is applied to LOMBO IDLE BELIEF (4) mid-race. HARD ROCK SHANNON (9) settled in ninth position and ran home well out wide late when third behind El Boston last outing. This race is slightly easier and he should be competitive again.

OVERVIEW: CASHFLOW CASSIE (5) is a handy mare and appears to be well placed against this line up. She was four horses wide early, pushed forward to race without cover at the 1800m and finished fifth behind Tasma Flash at Bendigo last outing. Her sound fourth placing behind Tay Tay in the Super Series Silver event is a good form reference for this race. CHANGEOVER GIRL (8) raced roughly at the start, dropped back to a rearward position and ran home well late via inside runs when third behind Our Bella Lucia last outing. She has more ability that her record suggests and she should be running home nicely again. REDDY MAJOR (4) settled midfield on the markers, worked into the clear at the quarter pole and finished off nicely for second behind Piratesof Zanzibar last outing. He possesses a handy finishing burst and should go well again. HAYJOSHANDCO (2) is perfectly drawn and raced very fiercely when a brave third at Cobram last week. He is worth thought along with KARALTA COURAGE (7), which finished nicely last outing and also ROLLING REMONA (10).

OVERVIEW: EIFFEL FROM HEAVEN (6) trailed the leader, moved away from the inside approaching the home turn and was held up for a run at a vital stage before dashing home for an unlucky second behind Malava Miss on her Victorian debut at Bendigo. This is a race of similar standard so she is capable of going one better. MISTER CRACKER (7) began quickly to race without cover and battled on for third in the same race at Bendigo last week. He has been racing well against similar opposition and is worth thought again. IMA BAD MOLLY (1) was four back on the markers but was severely checked at the 500m mark and lost her chance when fifth behind Goodtime Sometime at Bendigo last outing. She did make ground over the concluding stages so her effort was sound and she should be competitive from the pole position. STORMBOY STAR (2) restrained at the start from the outside of the front line, switched to the markers and came from last to finish second via the sprint lane at Bendigo last week. It was a good performance last time and he warrants consideration.

OVERVIEW: MADAM REACTOR (2) is racing in peak form and deserves to break through for a win. She finished fast when second (nose) behind Ozzie Sunshine then did well after racing without cover throughout at her latest third. BEE GEE CEE (1) began quickly to find the lead, backed off the tempo mid-race and had a good kick left at the end when he scored over Our Art Work last outing. He is rising in class but he is draw to be prominent throughout. BRING BACK LEAH (4) endured a tough run and battled on bravely for second behind SHAQ (12) last outing. She is starting to work back into her peak form and should give a forward showing. SHAQ (12) is a tough campaigner and recorded a mile rate of 1.55.1 after racing without cover when he scored at Bendigo prior to adding another victory on that track last week. He is one of the leading chances again. WHATA JOURNEY (7) is racing in career best form and is a chance of posting four straight victories but he is rising class and is poorly drawn for this assignment.

OVERVIEW: ALLURING TYRON (6) raced without cover early, switched to be four back on the markers then came away from the inside at the 400m when a big winner at Cobram last outing. She is stepping up in class but was impressive last time and she should prove hard to beat again. KYLIES LIFE (7) has performed extremely well in three starts since coming from New South Wales and should be competitive again. She trailed the leader early, ended up being three back on the markers and finished off well for third behind Three Bros last outing. THEYALLENDINY (4) led throughout from the standing start last outing. He is races best when he is in front and is likely to give another forward showing. DONTOUCH THE DUCO (2) is a fast beginner and has won a trial at Kilmore since his latest unplaced effort at Melton ($2-80 fav). He is better than his form reads and can improve on his latest performances, particularly from the good draw. HATEITWHENYOURRITE (5) and BAD AS NOW (8) are both capable of showing up without surprising.

OVERVIEW: ROCKING BUGATTI (2) settled three back on the inside and finished off fast via the sprint lane when second behind the smart pacer Heza Son Of Agun at Bendigo last outing. This is a field of similar standard and he should prove hard to beat. DO NOT SURRENDER (1) is a tough type, which attempted to lead early but couldn’t get across to the markers, raced without cover before switching onto the markers to trail the leader with 1400m remaining when fourth in the same race won by Heza Son Of Agun last week. He led throughout at a Shepparton victory on December 28 so he is perfectly drawn to suit his racing pattern. ART OF SHENG LI (3) began fast to find the lead and copped some pressure mid-race when a big winner at Cobram last outing. She is stepping up in class but she is drawn to give another forward showing over the sprint distance. THE LAST CHANCE (8) gained a one out and one back trail, pulled hard, came out three horses wide at the 400m and finished third behind Cheyella at Cobram last outing. He defeated CASTLE RETREAT (4) at a Shepparton victory on November 12 and is one of the leading chances again.

OVERVIEW: SENITAS STRENGTH (11) is a very classy mare, which won a heat of the Victory Derby last season. She led and easily won a heat of the Super Series then broke stride in the Final. She is clearly the class horse of the field and will take beating. GOLDEN SUNSET (10) is a smart mare and won a race at Bendigo prior to contesting the Super Series. She broke stride in the early stages and was tailed off ($1-45 fav) at Bendigo last week. She is better than her form reads and is worth an investment. VIOLETTA GIFT (6) began quickly to race without cover and battled on strongly for second at Bendigo last outing. She is racing in great form and is a strong place chance again. KALARNEY HEIDI (9) settled three back on the inside and finished solidly to score at Cobram two starts ago then got shuffled back on the markers from the inside of the second line at her latest fourth. She has claims along with EVERYBODYLOVESME (4), which will appreciate a drop back in class on her latest effort in the Super Series Final.

OVERVIEW: OUR MAJOR JACK (4) is a former New Zealand pacer, which joins trainer Julie Douglas. He hasn’t raced since September 2020 but he was extremely impressive at a recent Bendigo trial performance, where he found the front and scored with plenty in reserve. He strikes a suitable assignment and should prove hard to beat. GO GEORGE GO (8) is a first starter for trainer Glenn Bull, which finished third behind Pesci (won on debut) at his latest Bendigo trial performance. He should receive an economical run from the trailing draw and is worth thought again. ROYAL CADENCE (7) was caught wide early, restrained to last and worked home nicely over the latter stages when an unlucky seventh at Bendigo last outing. She is widely drawn but is capable of running into a place. SHEFFIELD PEAK (1) is a fast beginner and attempted to lead throughout when fourth at Bendigo. He is ideally drawn over the sprint distance so he is worth thought in multiple combinations.

This race is easier and he is a good chance of leading throughout. DISTRICT ATTORNEY (7) remains undefeated in two starts and won a trial in reasonable time at Bacchus Marsh recently so he must be respected, despite having not raced since August. KAPTAIN KIDD (4) produced a strong finishing burst when he got up to score over Eye See Amour at his debut. This race is harder but he is worth thought again. DOUBLE THE HUNTER (6) has been performing at a high level and will appreciate competing against a field of less depth. He raced fiercely when unplaced in the Graham Head Memorial last outing so he is worth another chance.

OVERVIEW: ILLAWONG PHOENIX (7) was shuffled back to eighth on the outside, switched to the markers at the 800m then angled out wide on the track on the home turn when she finished strongly for second behind Celestial Trekker last week. She is terribly drawn but she is the class runner of the field and she will take holding out in the run to the finish. KELLYS IDEAL (4) began quickly to be without cover early, gained a one out and one back trail and tried hard for second behind Caruso Star at Melton last outing. He scored at Shepparton prior and he appears to be one of the leading chances again. ROLLING ALONG (1) drew on the inside of the second line, moved away from the markers and was midfield in the running lane for the majority of the trip when unplaced at Kilmore last outing. He is much better drawn for this assignment and is capable of improving on his numerical form. FEEL THE BUZZ (6) is capable of sprinting to the line quickly with the right trail forward and will be suited to competing in a small field of seven runners. This is easier than his recent performances and he produced a good finish to score at Warragul on December 13.

He is likely to obtain a forward position shortly after the start and he won a trial at Bacchus Marsh on Saturday so he must be respected. DIAMOND WES (7) is resuming since March 2020 but he moved up without cover from the 900m and battled on well for second behind the smart trotter Interview at his latest Geelong trial performance so he is worth thought. MEGEVE (6) is resuming since September but she followed a trial victory with a fast finishing fourth in the trial won by Interview so she should be somewhere near her peak form. She is widely drawn but has the speed to figure in the finish. ERO CARPE DIEM (1) had every chance after trailing the leader at his latest fourth but is drawn to receive a similar trip. He has place claims along with MIDNIGHT AVENGER (4), which is rising in class on her past two victories.

She appears to be suited under these conditions and is worth an investment. LOYOLA GOLF (1) joins trainer Alex Ashwood after scoring at Mildura on January 04. This is a harder assignment but he races best when he is close to the speed and he is a short course specialist so a bold showing would not surprise. WHITE STAR VILLAGE (7) gained a one out and one back trail, switched onto the markers to be three back at the 500m, used the sprint lane and ran home well to win at Cranbourne last outing. He faces a negative swing in the barrier draw but he is worth thought again. SNAZOLA (6) appeared to have every chance at Melton last outing but the drop back in distance will suit. FEISTY PHOEBE (5) came from a long way back to win at Echuca on New Years Day and should be finishing nicely.

OVERVIEW: IM EUGENE (8) appreciated a drop back in class from the Super Series events when he came from a clear last and stormed home to defeat Glens of Tekoa, which has won twice since so his form line is strong. An added benefit to his chances is a very fast front line and the pace should be hectic in the early stages. Unfortunately, he didn’t recover after a slow beginning at Geelong on Tuesday night. IM THE MIGHTYGRAMPS (7) produced a big performance and was very unlucky at Maryborough. He was checked and galloped when entering the back straight on the final occasion, lost approximately 20m and finished quickly for fourth (8m). He is poorly drawn but is ready to break through for a win against this class. MISTER REBEL (5) trailed into the race nicely and appeared to have his chance when third at Maryborough on Sunday but he recorded a mile rate of 1.56.0 when he won at Shepparton on December 28 and his overall form is sound. GEE HEE ROCKS (4) ran a nice race when second behind Aimforthestarzzz when resuming and had little luck last outing so he is worth an investment. PRIDDY EASY (1), CRAFTY OLD FOX (2) and ZARAS ALL GOOD (3) all race best when they are able to lead over the sprint distance so it might be a good battle into the first turn.

OVERVIEW: ULTIMATE VINNIE (4) is a very handy pacer and will appreciate a big drop back in class on his latest fourth behind Knights Templar in the Super Series Silver event on December 30. He finished second behind Bondi Lockdown in a heat of that series so he is clearly the horse to beat. ONEHANDONEBOUNCE (7) was heavily supported when resuming since May and ran a great race after galloping away then followed with a victory at Yarra Valley. He worked hard at Cranbourne last outing and is worth another chance. SASSYOLA (2) is backing up from her effort at Geelong on Tuesday, where she trailed the leader and winner River Patrol in a mile of 1.55.9 and continues to race consistently. She trailed the leader from the pole position and finished third behind Total Eclipse at Melton on January 21. She is drawn to produce her usual honest performance. LOLA MONTEZ (3) had little luck in her past two attempts and finished strongly when second prior. She is a handy mare and should go well under these conditions.

OVERVIEW: NORMANDY BELLE (7) finished fifth behind Flash Kyvalley last outing after settling last of the ten runners from an awkward draw and coming out very wide on the home turn. She finished second behind La Serena and has started as the favourite at her past four starts so she warrants consideration. VARIANCE (5) has early speed and his past two runs have been encouraging so he might be worth an investment. This is easier than his latest fifth in the Hamilton Cup and he has been competitive at a high level previously. IZMOK (6) settled midfield and ran a handy race despite finishing fifth (6m) behind Chissy at Bendigo last outing. He should be reaching his peak form after his two runs back from a spell and this appears to be a suitable assignment. ME PAT MALONE (1) pushed forward to race without cover with a mile remaining and faded into ninth at Maryborough last outing. He is better than that effort suggests and raced without cover to win at Bendigo in December so he is worth another chance. PROSTHESIS (3) is resuming since July but he ran some big races during his last campaign and will be competitive if he delivers a fool proof display.

OVERVIEW: TOTAL ECLIPSE (2) has performed strongly at her two starts since coming from New Zealand and should be competitive again. She began quickly and was without cover early, ended up being in the one out and one back trail and scored nicely at Melton last week so she is the horse to beat again. OZZIE SUNSHINE (1) led throughout to win the Super Series Bronze event two starts ago and raced without cover when a gallant third behind Ozzie Playboy last outing. She is drawn to receive every chance and should go well again. CARUSO STAR (3) was shuffled back to eighth in the middle stages, came out three horses wide from the 700m and fought on well for second behind the handy mare Twisted Bliss at Charlton. He is racing in career best form and is worth thought again. SIMON (5) settled in ninth position and came out three horses wide from the 900m when a game fourth in the Central Victorian Championship at Maryborough on Monday. He has performed consistently since returning from Queensland and he looms as one of the leading chances. ROCKNTOMMY RULZ (8) went very quickly in the early stages and battled on well for fifth at Cobram. He won at his first three starts since coming from New Zealand and hasn’t had much luck at his past two attempts so he is worth another chance.
