Tamworth R3 #7  Danza In The Dark $3.60

This three-year-old gelding featured in this article last start when on debut. He had trialled well at Scone and I thought he could run a big race at his first start. Unfortunately, he was slowly away from the barriers and then continued to over race behind a wall of horses with no where to go. The early pace was very slow, so those up on speed were always goings to be hard to run down in the straight. He did find the line well, running the fastest last 200m, after finally getting some clear room to let down. I am a bit puzzled by the drop back in distance to the 1000m but possibly the slow beginning last start was a rare occurrence and they will be positive from the gate. I have also liked the trials and will be having something on #15 Entreat, can be positive from the inside gate and has been competitive against some handy older gallopers, Mr Wong and Emanuela. If you like having a trifecta/ first 4, box #1,3,7,10,13,15.

Geelong  R4 #7  Spring Break $4.55

This Tavistock gelding caught my eye when he jumped out at Camperdown. He missed the start but joined in soon after and went to the line without being asked for much of an effort. On his outside was a horse called Kuramae, she was slightly ridden and has proven she has her fair share of talent. Yesterday she won at Flemington beating some other promising horses. The next jump-out he was ridden but he won beating Holburt. He has definitely done enough work going into this and fitness should not be an issue. Worth having a saver on #3 Nube Viajera, ridden in a jump-out at Flemington but was against a few horses who have won maidens.

Goulburn R3 #12 Spring Secret $19.00

I think this daughter of Pluck will run a big race at odds here. She has shown me something in her trials from early on, but the penny has taken a while to drop and she continues to over race. She definitely gets her chance to be competitive here though in what looks an easier assignment to what she has been contesting. First up she had to make a wide run but still stuck on ok to finish midfield. The latest run was against much better company at Warwick Farm, although beaten 9L by the winner, she crossed the line with Significance. He has subsequently won his maiden, winning by 7L in what would most likely be the easiest win you will see this year. If this filly repeats that last start effort and is better on a drier track she represents great value at the $19.
