Warrnambool R1  #8 Taylor’s Dream $3.95

I thought this daughter of Rubick was going to be hard to beat on debut. She had been placed in a jump-out at Ballarat that included well performed gallopers, that had proven above average ability and she did not look out of place. The debut run at Bendigo was definitely a pass mark, she showed good natural pace to settle in a forward position but found two runners that had the advantage of race day fitness a bit better late. The winner, The Last Charge had been competitive with Forever Free at his previous start, that filly is absolutely flying at the moment, subsequently remaining undefeated by winning a listed race. #4 The Billionaire, I also tipped this guy on debut and he was disappointing. It would not shock to see him improve because he was looking sharp at the jump-outs prior to that run. Definitely having something on him, just in case.

Warrnambool R2  #3  Make It Count $6.20

This Snitzel gelding is coming off a long spell but he does have talent. His record reads well with three wins from only six starts. He can go well fresh and looks to enjoy the wet tracks, with two wins on soft ground and a win on heavy. He has also shown a liking for the track, winning the maiden at Warrnambool during the carnival last year. Forgive last start at Bendigo, he was wide throughout facing the breeze. He can roll forward today and Campbell Rawiller’s 2kg claim should come in handy late.

Canberra R5 #9  Physcoa $7.40

This four-year-old mare attracted good support on debut. She had only trialled the once in preparation for that debut and was given a very quiet time in that open trial. In hindsight it was a big ask for her to be competitive at Canberra, it had been 29 weeks since that trial and she was having her first start on a heavy 8 track. The winner of that race, Seventh Seal has franked the form by winning again and the 4th placed horse Full of Fire has subsequently won. Now 3rd up she would be fit enough to be in the finish.
