V

RACE ONE

ESCALERA (7)
was dominant on debut here 10 days ago when pressing ahead from gate 5 and then working on to take up the running. Once in control he was never in danger and sizzled home a 27.6 closing panel. He looks to have his share of class.

CAPITALIZE (5) landed the Breeders Final 3 starts back and succumbed to injury soon after. Returning when not asked for much behind SMART AS CAMM BE he then struck trouble in the Triad final on Sat night. HE is much better suited here and can throw down the challenge.

FEELING FROSTY (3) dropped to the pegs in the Triad consolation and followed them home. His 2nd here 3 starts back was a tidy effort and he can land in the money from the gate.

ALI DOWNUNDER (9) worked home nicely to land a win on debut here over the mile. Given a shot in the Triad Consolation 2nd up he was too far back in a slick closing panel. He can improve further.

SELECTIONS: ESCALERA (7), CAPITALIZE (5), FEELING FROSTY (3), ALI DOWNUNDER (9)
SUGGESTED BET: ESCALERA (7) to win

RACE TWO

DAPPER BESSIE (2) was doing her best work in the closing stages last start to get within a head of MICKEE CULLEN. That followed a tidy effort when tracking home in good style at Redcliffe after starting from gate 10. From this gate she can be right in the contest.

MAHALO (1) was crossed in the early stages from this same alley at Redcliffe last start and then copped a check when the leader galloped yet she regathered to hold on for the bronze. With the soft trip she can feature.

FASTESTGIRLINTOWN (12) was working home wide off the track last start at her 1st Qld appearance and hit the line in good style. With no favours from the gate she will need some luck yet can still place.

SELECTIONS: DAPPER BESSIE (2), MAHALO (1), FASTESTGIRLINTOWN (12)
SUGGESTED BET:

RACE THREE

REGAL ROCK (1) gets the gate and it could be a 3 from 3 start for Darrel Graham. A strong winner at Marburg 2 starts back when sent forward from a wide gate and spacing them, he was forced to work here last start in the breeze and from the ace gets every chance.

HAPPY FEELINGS (3) will take good benefit from her 1st up run when returning from a 6 month break. Settling in the running line from gate 4 she didn’t get the cleanest passage and may have been a little closer with better luck. She ran into some handy ones last prep and has claims here.

MERRYMACH (8) will appreciate a trailing draw after facing wide gates at each of her 4 career starts. Resuming last start when well covered behind HERBS HERO, she can get the cosy trip and land in the money.

ALLYS FELLA (4) looks a type that should appreciate the bigger track after 2 runs at Redcliffe and 2 at Marburg to start his career. Not suited when working hard from gate 5 last start he can be an improver.

SELECTIONS: REGAL ROCK (1), HAPPY FEELINGS (3), MERRYMACH (8), ALLYS FELLA (4)
SUGGESTED BET: REGAL ROCK (1) to win

RACE FOUR

ZED CODE (6)
has placed at her past 2 starts with the latest at Redcliffe when starting fav. Tracking home wide off the track the effort was good behind FEELINGFORAMIRACLE. Returning from a freshen she strikes an open and winnable race.

DONT BE JEALOUS (9) sat in the 1x1 last start and after a pedestrian opening half the leader kicked away and nothing from back in the pack was any hope. Not suited from a wide gate 2 starts back, she can find a nice trail through here and run home into some money.

LIVING FREE (7) has placed in 4 of her past 5 starts with the latest a tidy effort when running home into the silver behind MACHITELLI at Marburg. With the soft trip she will be ready to offer late.

CHANG (1) chased home well from back in the pack to grab the bronze behind MICKEE CULLEN 2 starts back. Not suited in the breeze last start, he will need to hustle early and is a place hope.

SELECTIONS: ZED CODE (6), DON’T BE JEALOUS (9), LIVING FREE (7), CHANG (1)
SUGGESTED BET:

RACE FIVE

TASCOTT LADY (1) worked hard in the run last start when finishing mid-field behind THERESACHANCE in a stronger race. Only 3.5m from the winner EMARGEE after pressing forward early at Redcliffe 2 starts back, she has the options here and looks to get her chance in this.

WANDERING ALLNIGHT (6) has taken on stronger races in his 3 runs in Qld and despite a wide gate can look to capitalise in this type of field. Forget his last start where he had excuses, his previous start behind ASHLEYS ANGEL had merit and he is right in the fight.

FLASHING GOOD TIME (2) was taken back from a wide gate last start and was too far back in the pack to issue a challenge. With good early speed she can take an early shot and has claims.

ROCKWITH THEDEVIL (12) will strip fitter following 1 run back from a break where he was too far back over the 2138m. He went into that without a trial and can be an improver in this line-up.

SELECTIONS: TASCOTT LADY (1), WANDERING ALLNIGHT (6), FLASHING GOOD TIME (2), ROCKWITH THEDEVIL (12)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-2-6-12

RACE SIX

STEVIE DEE (8)
should appreciate this class of opponent after going within a half-neck of victory last start in stronger company. Looking to take them all the way from gate 2, it took every inch of the straight for REDBANK ADDI to wind up to score. She will need a slice of luck but is worth the chance.

COURAGEOUS CRUZ (1) returns to Donny Smith after returning from a break in 3 runs for Darrel Graham where he failed to flatter. Those 3 runs came after a 10 month break from the track and with his latest run showed some improvement, he can look to make the most of the draw in this.

GHOST GUM (9) took inside runs last start and chased home well to be 7m from the winner BELLA RIPPIN. He can drop back to the pegs here and with the peg-line run can chime into the exotics.

WEE JIMMY (3) took the trail from gate 1 at Redcliffe 2 starts back and did well to hold on for the bronze. This is easier than his last outing and he has place hopes.

SELECTIONS: STEVIE DEE (8), COURAGEOUS CRUZ (1), GHOST GUM (9), WEE JIMMY (3)
SUGGESTED BET: STEVIE DEE (8) to win

RACE SEVEN

NOVENA ROSE (1) chased hard when sitting on NERIO at Redcliffe 2 starts back to get within a neck of the win. Finding her race last start she finished over the top to score a good win over the 2138m trip. From the gate she gets every chance to go back-to-back.

JANIES GOT A GUN (3) is a slick beginner that can look to take the early shot to find the pegs and dictate. Pressing ahead to work in the run her effort was strong when finishing 2m from THE IDES OF MARCH, In the top two at 5 of her past 6, she can repeat that again here.

HAVETOGETAWAYMORE (8) is effective when following the speed and taking the inside runs. With conditions to suit here look for her making a closing play along the inside.

FARRAHFOWLER (4) found the line nicely last start behind the handy TRES VITE. A Redcliffe winner 3 starts back when finishing hard, she can land in the money again here.

SELECTIONS: NOVENA ROSE (1), JANIES GOT A GUN (3), HAVETOGETAWAYMORE (8), FARRAHFOWLER (4)
SUGGESTED BET: NOVENA ROSE (1) to win

RACE EIGHT

BUCKHORN EXCHANGE (8)
has been freshened since his last outing when using the passing lane to score at Redcliffe and defeating CALCAVADO. Buired away the start prior behind PARISIAN ROCKSTAR he can look for the cheap run and be ready to finish hard in the stretch.

SPEEDIE MCARDLE (1) sat in the pocket trail last start and chased home behind ADMIRAL BRONSKI who followed that up with a powerful win on Sat night. From the gate he can settle in the perfect spot and with this below his last outing, look to make the most of his chances.

JAX NAVARO (5) returned to winning form last start in good fashion when finishing over the top to score. That was his 2nd run back from a long break and with further fitness can feature in this.

MONIVAE (9) should appreciate this type of race after taking on some stronger opponents in recent starts. His run via the passing lane 2 starts back was a tidy effort and looking for short-cuts is an exotic hope.

SELECTIONS: BUCKHORN EXCHANGE (8), SPEEDIE MCARDLE (1), JAX NAVARO (5), MONIVAE (9)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-5-8-9

RACE NINE

GREGS LEGACY (1)
was buried from an inside 2nd line gate last time out and held ground to the line behind THE IDES OF MARCH. He hit the line in good order 3 starts back behind BEAU CISHLOM. His last win came when leading all the way from gate 5 in a similar type race and he will be gripping on.

NERIO (8) took them all the way at Redcliffe last start and was able to run home a nice closing panel after dealing in front. That followed a late closing 2nd to KATNISS when beaten 4m. From the gate she will be coiled and ready to take the snipers shot.

GOOD BOY OLIVER (11) was taken back from gate 7 last start to look for luck and short-cuts when chasing home for the bronze behind MARK OF INTEGRITY. He has been meeting much stronger opponents and with even luck in transit can give this a shake.

VILLAGE CRUISER (9) can look to dart down to the pegs here with the inside line a good place to be in this race. He charged home from back in the pack 2 starts back and can be probing late.

SELECTIONS: GREGS LEGACY (1), NERIO (8), GOOD BOY OLIVER (11), VILLAGE CRUISER (9)
SUGGESTED BET: GOOD BOY OLIVER (11) each-way
