He has obvious moist music ability but weighted to his satisfaction with 61kg. Big step up in grade for revolutionary 4YO Gundagai gelding eight. Monkey, but he’s received his ultimate 3 powering domestic from properly off the tempo and loves moist tracks—Canberra mare 2. Mahalo benefited from a lightweight to finish over the pinnacle in that Open grade at Wagga maintaining off Toorak Cowboy, but up sharply in weight and drawn huge, even though it is a actual moist-tracker.

Race 5 BM fifty-eight HCP (2000m)
Another open contest for the stayers or middle-distance gallopers stepping up. If 4YO Canberra mare 12. Sepulcher handles the floor; she’s the one to beat at precise odds. Hit the line nicely in proper Class 1 enterprise in her closing two, and an extra ride is ideal. I drew out and never raced on something worse than a Soft 6; however, it is via Dane Shadow out of a Zabeel mare, so I ought to get via it.
Dangers: Another visitor from the Corstens yard at Flemington, 3YO filly 6. Tantivy completed off nicely to win this grade at Echuca but is going up sharply in the trip. Cranbourne 7YO gelding 5. Romelo is a real wet-tracker getting back from a strong last run in a Highweight at Warrnambool. Looks acceptable on this grade.

Rider pronounced he wasn’t satisfied with the pony’s action on the Good three, and he had previously bolted in his maiden at Corowa in Soft 7 floor, so go back to more favorable conditions right here looms as a large plus.
Dangers: Local 5YO gelding 6. Bradley failed to get many good formates to begin at the Heavy 10; from an outside barrier, he can be ridden extra aggressively, and the shape rider’s 3kg claim gets him well into the race. Seymour mare 4. Carwelkin is nice on most tracks and landed the prize on this grade at Tatura runs back. Wangaratta gelding five.
