ROUGHIES

SANDOWN HILLSIDE R1 #5   MELMAC $32.00

I thought this two-year-old jumped out ok before his debut. He was untested as he crossed the line in 3rd position with Vividredsky behind him, ridden. Vividredsky has won four races, including a benchmark 64 back in April this year. I thought Melmac was strong through the line and was not far off classy galloper Man from Uncle after the winning post. Prepared to forgive the poor performance on debut and give another chance at odds. #2 Standoff looks the hardest to beat.

WARWICK FARM R7 #16  LOUDER $18.20

Ran well last start at Wyong when running 2nd. She was only collared late there by one out wide. Can keep improving and does not have much weight on the back today.

SANDOWN HILLSIDE R6 #10   SPLENDID ISOLATION $3.50

This filly showed good natural speed and fight when winning on debut. She beat home the favourite Sword of Mercy there, who could only manage 3rd at Werribee. The Flemington run can be forgiven, she pulled up with lacerations and she resumes here after a recent jump-out win.

WARWICK FARM R1 #1  BOURBON ROSE $7.30

This filly has always shown me some ability in her trials. She was not beaten far in her first start behind Stolen Glance and then was caught a bit wide early at her second start when finishing 6th of 9. The most recent trial she looked to travel well alongside Ashra Jahre, that galloper won yesterday.

WARWICK FARM R3 #5  DIAMONDS AND RUST $4.25

Third up now she should be very competitive again. Only found one better last start and gets a 3kg drop in weight from that run.
