Pakenham R1 #10     Secret Sauce $1.72

I thought this three-year-old filly had jumped out well going into the debut at Morphettville last preparation. The debut was full of merit, she was slowly away from the barriers and then over raced through the early stages but still managed to hang onto 3rd. The form from the race has stood up with the winner That Girl, although not winning again, she has been very  competitive in town at Flemington. Running 2nd, beaten by a bob of the head in a benchmark 70. The horse that ran 2nd at Morphettville, Garner, subsequently won his next two starts and most recently a listed race. Secret Sauce has been given plenty of time to mature and the recent jump-outs suggest she should be winning here.

Kilmore R2 #11  Panda’s Nosey Boot $6.40

I put this filly in the black book when she was unraced and appeared at the jump-outs. I was impressed when she matched motors with Sentimentalist, an older galloper who has subsequently been flying since that jump-out. He won the Stawell cup first up from that freshen and most recently won at Caulfield, beating the high-class Mr Quickie. Fair to say this filly has not hit the ground running in the same fashion but she is working up to a win. She looks to be improving with every step up in distance and does not meet a strong field. The danger looks to be #12 Paraphernalia. Comes out of the best form race for mine and was not beaten far.

Newcastle  R1 #8  She’s So Savvy $2.35

I think this daughter of So You Think has returned in good order this preparation. Her first trial back at Randwick she split two horses who have subsequently won, East Asia and Battleground, with the latter bolting in by 4L. The second trial at Hawkesbury was the most impressive. She made good ground after the finishing post against some quality gallopers, including Bring the Ransom, who has since won a benchmark 74 at Warwick farm. The first up run was very good, coming from a mile back on the turn to run 2nd. She is screaming out for the extra distance and I expect her to win.
