TAREE R1 #2    ZARU $5.10

I thought this gelding trialled well before his debut. He ran 2nd behind Fair Dinkum who has won three races and beat home a couple that have subsequently won maiden races, including Manly Hanover and Wilburglen. The first up run this time in was good, running 2nd behind Lobban Leroy who trialled well before going into that race. Zaru should take a heap of improvement from that run because he went in without a trial and looks a horse who will be better over more ground.

TAREE R2 #7  CECILIA $4.50

The daughter of Darci Brahma ran well on debut. She ran 3rd and was only beaten 1.35L by Candy Bar who was heavily backed to win the race. The horse that finished 2nd Moinda has subsequently won a maiden. This filly has been given plenty of time to mature since that debut and the recent trial suggest she has come back in good order. Not sure on the quality of opposition in the trial but she was travelling in first gear.

WAGGA R4  #10   RED KANZI $3.90

This filly travelled well in a recent open trial. She was always up on the speed and was only overtaken late by Intuition and Estaverdi. Intuition has won eight races and most recent start was in listed company. She should go forward and give them something to catch over the 1000m. #1 OPENHIMUP is the hardest to beat and is going into my quinella. He brings the best form and benchmark figures into the race and has his hoof on the till.


He was not beat far last start when running 3rd behind Mark the Horse. Nama Dude ran 2nd and is a horse who I have a bit of time for and think will progress to better races in time. This does not look a tough race and includes some that look limited. He finds the right maiden here.

DONALD R3  #6   UNCLE RAGSY $10.20

I thought the latest jump-out showed good improvement from the rest. He was ridden to win the jump-out at Ballarat, but he beat home Pelonomena, that mare won a benchmark 70 race at Sandown Hillside at her most recent start. Back in 3rd was Carnamah, a gelding from the Matt Cumani stable that had previously caught my eye. #5 NASUKAWA is included in the exotics, jumped out well and the debut run was a pass mark. #9 RENOUF has shown plenty of ability but has been disappointing in most recent runs. Looks to have returned well after spell. If you want to include a roughie #16 STINGA would not shock to see him fill a place.


Jumped out well at Warrnambool when finished close-up to stablemate Capital Zous. Capital Zous has since been to the races and was impressive when winning on debut. He then jumped out well enough again finishing close-up to Mr Cancun who has shown good ability wining two races, including a benchmark 64. This does not look a strong race and I will make him the best of the day.
