OVERVIEW: It is a good trotting event to commence the program with several winning chances. ALLWOODS SUNBEAM (4) has been placed in five of her past six starts and sprinted brilliantly off a nice trail to win by a large margin at Shepparton last week. This race is harder but she is worth thought again. CAPRIOSKA (1) trailed the leader and gained the perfect run when she scored under similar conditions two starts back. She is drawn to receive a similar run in transit and should prove hard to beat again. BEAU GARCON (7) has won two of his past three starts and overcame a hard run to win at Horsham last outing. He tends to make mistakes as his record suggests (25-7-0-1), where he invariably wins or breaks stride and finishes down the track. He is a definite winning chance if he delivers a fool proof display. BLUE COMAN (5) is resuming but won a trial at Maryborough last week by a comfortable margin and showed promise at his first campaign since coming from New Zealand, including a fifth in the Tontine Championship. He should be competitive if he is somewhere near his peak. The fast beginners STARLIGHT STORM (6) and FRATELLINO (8) are both racing well enough to figure in the finish.

OVERVIEW: ALLSET (8) is a New Zealand bred first starter, which defeated Trouble Looming at a recent Shepparton trial victory. It was a narrow victory but there was a lot to like about the way he kept on finding in the straight so he must be respected. ELANDCEE YOUANDME (10) has returned from a long spell in dashing form with two placed efforts, where he finished strongly from the back of the field on each occasion. He is nearing a win against this class and appears to be a good value bet. JETS ART (11) was only just nosed out for second by ELANDCEE YOUANDME (10) at his latest Maryborough third. He hasn’t finished further back than fourth in his six starts to date and he should be competitive again. ANDRES (1) and RADIANT ROSE (3) are both fast beginners and are capable of showing up against this class. SUNDANCER RAINBOW (7) has finished fast at her past two placed performances but she might get too far back from the wide draw.

OVERVIEW: It is a strong race for the juveniles to wrap up the program but there will be plenty of interest surrounding the former New South Wales trained pacer SPOCK (7), which joins trainer David Aiken. He produced a massive performance to win at Newcastle on his debut where he raced away to score by 34m in a mile rate of 1.56.1, seemingly with plenty in reserve so he appears to be very promising. VIVA LA ROCK (5) produced a very strong performance to finish second behind Joanna at Ballarat last outing. He pushed forward to race without cover in fast time and was still coming at the winner on the line so he is nearing a win. SAYITAINTSO JOE (8) will appreciate a drop back in class on his latest tenth in the Home Grown Classic Final, where he endured a tough run. He is very smart but being drawn on the inside of the second row is a big disadvantage. CLASSICAL MUSIC (1) will appreciate her best draw to date and is a chance along with DABYMINGA (4), which chased gamely for second behind the smart colt Alby Two Chains at Kilmore at his latest attempt.

OVERVIEW: LETS DIG IT (8) appears to be extremely well placed against this field but the barrier draw is a big disadvantage. He was impressive at a Shepparton trial victory prior to a first up second since coming from New South Wales where he couldn’t lead early and ended up being in a trailing position. He is clearly the horse to beat if he gains normal luck in running. CHEEKY MAJOR (4) was shuffled back on the markers after being headed off at the start when unplaced at Cranbourne last week. He places more often than he wins but he is usually competitive against this class. THE DIAMOND KING (11) settled three back on the markers and finished off reasonably well for fourth in fast time at Bendigo last outing. He can usually sprint to the line quickly with the right trail forward and he should be competitive against this line up. EVIES DRESSMAKER (1) was working home reasonably well when third at Echuca last outing. She has a fast beginner in CEE CEE NORMAN (2) drawn on her outside so she should gain an economical run on the markers and is a place chance again.

OVERVIEW: RECKON IM SMART (3) is a former New Zealand pacer, which had no luck whatsoever from a wide draw at his Australian debut ($1-20 fav) and is worth another chance. He was still last and behind a wall of horses on the home turn, went back to the inside in desperation and shot through along the sprint lane late. PINNACLE HOPE (8) is very awkwardly drawn on the inside of the second line but he has been competitive against similar opposition recently having been placed at his past five attempts (2 wins). He finished solidly at his latest second behind Magic Cruiser at Ballarat. CHEEKI PHILTRA (7) possesses brilliant gate speed and is a chance of finding the front, even though she is drawn in the extreme alley. She led throughout to win at Kilmore last outing and this race is only slightly stronger. POLAR LIGHTS (5) is a Greg Norman trained pacer, which makes her return to Victoria after a reasonably successful stint in South Australia. She finished a close second behind Nai Harn Bay at a Maryborough trial on Sunday and is not without a chance. TWEET ABOUT IT (2) hasn’t had much luck recently and has claims, particularly if she can find the markers shortly after the start.

OVERVIEW: HAVE NO CHOICE (2) appeals as a value bet in a race of several chances. He gained a nice trail early but struck bother when sixth at Kilmore last outing and this is his best draw in four starts back from a spell. CAUSING STRIFE (8) was driven aggressively to find the lead in the early stages and copped plenty of pressure mid-race when fifth in fast time at Bendigo. She is awkwardly drawn but is starting to work back into some form. GOOD COP (4) was forced to work very hard to find the lead in the early stages and boxed on for third at Mildura last outing. He moved up without cover early to win on that track prior. This race is probably a little harder but he has the early speed to find a prominent position and he should be competitive again. CRACKED PEPPER (3) is racing consistently and was runner up after trailing the leader from the pole position last time. This race is no harder and she should run her usual honest race. There are many other chances in an open event with LAGOM (7), a last start winner at Echuca, probably being the pick of them.

LETS GET SHORTY

OVERVIEW: THEULTIMATE (6) was resuming since April when she settled midfield but locked wheels and lost her opportunity at her first up seventh behind the handy type in Scorcha at Shepparton. She was performing nicely at the trials prior and she won the Breeders Crown Silver in 2019 so she is worth another chance. TARZALI (9) is a talented sprinter, which defeated I’m Short and Sweet (won several times since) at Bendigo prior to a close up fourth in a handy mile rate of 1.55.8. She boasts a good strike rate and is one of the leading chances again. LET’S GET SHORTY (12) trailed up nicely from last and ran to the line fairly well for fifth at Cranbourne last outing. He hasn’t quite been at his best form in two starts back from a break but his trial form is sound and he should be just about ready to deliver a peak performance. KRAFTY BART (10) is resuming since a Cranbourne victory in June but he recorded handy time at a narrow trial victory over TARZALI (9) at Melton recently and is worth an investment. There are several other winning chances including IAMTHEFIRECRACKER (7), LOLA MONTEZ (11) and IDEAL CULLECT (13).

OVERVIEW: BABYITSCOLD (9) has the perfect trailing draw behind BRING THE FLAVE (2) and she ran to the line nicely behind the smart 3yo pacer Boots Electric (won again since) last outing so she must be considered as a winning chance. LOUISIANA JO (6) was resuming since June when she had no luck whatsoever from a similar wide draw and finished ninth behind Nota Replica. She started to make up ground in the straight but ran into a dead-end and finished with something in reserve. LUNAR DELIGHT (7) finished third in the same race after being held up for a run at a vital stage and finding the line nicely. She is racing consistently and is not without a chance. CEE CEE IN AMERICA (10) is resuming since July but raced against strong opposition when he was last in work and he was able to weave a passage to impressively win a Maryborough trial on Sunday. He is poorly drawn but has too much ability to dismiss. The key to the result is how quickly the three fast beginners MY MACH SCOOTER (1), BRING THE FLAVE (2) and ROSLYN GAYE (3) are prepared to go in the first quarter of the event.

OVERVIEW: PATS DRAGON (11) is stepping up in class but he has been extremely impressive at his three Australian victories to date and he should prove hard to beat again. He was forced to sustain a long run from the back in a last 800m of 56.0 seconds when he scored last time. ROSSINI (3) was returning to Victoria after a successful stint in New South Wales when he finished solidly from midfield and was second behind Nota Replica at Shepparton. He is likely to progress forward at the start here and will take catching if he can find the lead. SCORCHA (8) is a very promising pacer but couldn’t have drawn worse than the inside of the second line. He was driven aggressively from the outside of the second row and found the lead mid-race when he beat the smart filly Sweet Louise last week. DIAMOND GRACE (4) has been racing well at metropolitan level and the drop back in distance will suit her. She is worth thought along with the consistent performer AZZA (9).

OVERVIEW: MA KATIE (5) has returned from a spell in peak form and should run another good race here. She pushed forward to race without cover when she was able to defeat the handy pacer I’m Short and Sweet (won since) at Shepparton then sustained a long run when a game third behind Scorcha last outing. She is versatile and will find this race to be no harder. The class runner of the field is the Breeders Crown place getter STARSBYTHEBEACH (12). She hasn’t started since a Shepparton victory in March but she won the String of Pearls at Albury and contested heats of the New South Wales and Victorian Oaks series when she was last in work. She is poorly drawn and hasn’t exactly set the track alight at the trials however having been unplaced in four recent appearances, which is a concern but she is the one to beat if she is somewhere near her peak. NATS A CHRISTIAN (1) has been promising a win for some time and is better drawn for this assignment but she is also rising a little in class. She is likely to hold a forward position at the start and is not without a chance. STANBYME (7) put in a strong performance after moving up on the outside of the leader last outing and has claims along with MORE THAN A WOMAN (8) and DIAMOND PARTY (11).

OVERVIEW: MISS TIPSY (1) may be headed off at the start from the pole position but she has been racing in great form and should prove hard to beat in this line up. She was forced to race on the outside of the leader when a brave second ($3-40 fav) last time out. KALARNEY HEIDI (6) was aggressively driven to find the lead and was able to score at Bendigo then tried to adopt the same tactic last week but became very fierce in the middle stages and tired late. She is a winning chance if she can settle better mid-race. ROCKFORD PEACH (8) is racing consistently but will be relying on MISS TIPSY (1) holding a forward position at the start. She has been placed at her past five starts against similar opposition and should be working home nicely at the end. STICK WITH ME (13) is resuming since a second behind From The Swamp at Shepparton in June but will be fitter for several recent trial performances, the latest being a second behind Golden Sunset. She is poorly drawn but she should be competitive against this line up. BELLA CONTESSA (2), HADES SKY (7) and CREDIT TO CHRIS (12) all have claims in another very open trotting event.

Awkward draw but is one of the place chances along with FIVE STAR SHARK (9) and MASTER REMI (4) are both showing good improvement whilst NONE GREATER (2) arrives from Queensland and creates interest and CAPTAIN MASTRICT (1) is a first four hope from the nice draw.

GENTLEMAN SIR NZ

OVERVIEW: GATESYS GIFT (2) capable trotter that won three in a row in smart fashion back in July and August. Resumes from a short break and looks hard to beat in this. GENTLEMAN SIR (6) racing much better than his overall figure form reads and is close to winning another race. Runner up at this track two starts ago and is suited here. Definite chance. Both CAABELLO (5) and EXPRESS YOURSELF (4) are honest mares that are never far away and have claims. WHATTALOTTAFRAY (3) and PRIMZ LUCK (1) both should be in it for a long way and are place hopes.

CHARISMA KING

OVERVIEW: SPEED DATING (3) she is racing well without winning and has been runner up at her past four starts. Gets her chance here to win another race. WONDERFORCE (7) veteran pacer racing well and is close to another win. Definite chance despite the wide draw. FEISTY PHOEBE (4) caught the eye with a big finish last start and a repeat performance can have her winning this. LADY FLORA (2) she’s been finishing out of the placings in recent times but can improve here. Not out of it. WILL AND ANDY (5) suited here and has claims.

KICK IT TO JACK

OVERVIEW: MALIBU JACK (6) racing well without much racing luck and looks well placed here to be a major chance with the right trip in transit. GREENOUGH (4) nice effort by the veteran last start by racing without cover and being narrowly beaten. One of the main chances here. MAGIC CRUISER (2) finished off powerfully to win last start and expect a similar showing here. FOWSANDS (3) is very honest and never far away and must be respected. SIR FORTUNE (1) KICK IT TO JACK (5) FREEDOM WRITER (7) all have claims to be included in the place and first four hopes.
