Sale R2 #8  Hedley’s Lady $3.95

This filly has been given plenty of time to mature and resumes here from a long spell. She has had a habit of overracing during her short career and I think that is the main reason she has not been able to breakthrough for a win. Two starts ago at Echuca she looked to race in better fashion and just failed to run down the leader and winner, Clever Spark, missing by a bob of the head. Clever Spark although winning at big odds that day proved it was not a fluke when running 3rd, beaten less than a length at her next start in a benchmark 70. Hedley’s Lady has jumped out at Kyneton in preparation for this and although towards the rear, which is typical for the stable she more importantly did not look to over race.

Sale R5  #5  High Done $2.30

This galloper is on the quick back-up after racing on Saturday at Moe. I thought he was going to be hard to beat there but he was outsprinted late and was collared on the line by Mylex. I am forgiving that run because I do not think the race shape suited him. He found himself in the lead and appeared to set a very slow pace. It then turned into just a sprint home once they straightened and he would not have been suited trying to sprint with the 62kg on his back, the winner Mylex only had to carry 54kg. He drops 4.5 kgs from that last run, gets a jockey change with king Callow going aboard and can win with a genuine run race.

Kembla Grange   R3  #3  Krameric $2.55

This son of Rubick has contested some really good races. He ran 3rd in a group 3 race on debut and was only beaten 1.6L.  He then ran 3rd again on two occasions when running in a listed race at Doomben, followed up with a 3rd in a group 3 at the same venue. He was disappointing when running last at his previous start, but he must be forgiven, after he was found to have bled for the first time. This looks a winnable race for him to resume in and the gelding operation may have switched him on.
