ROSEHILL R4 #7  MILUNKA $6.70

Always had a lot of time for this mare. I thought she won well first up from a spell at Canterbury and the form from that race has been franked. The 2nd placed horse, Lady Highly has since won a benchmark 70 and the 3rd placed horse Whiskey Shooter has subsequently won a 78 down here in Vic. Forget this mare went around last start, she was ridden very patiently and was found to be lame post-race. Next best #14 FULMINA has returned in good order this preparation and will be in it for a long way with no weight on her back.

CAULFIELD R1 #4  YULONG ISLAND  $6.80 #12  CLEAN MACHINE $3.75

This two-year-old colt jumped out nicely at Flemington, last preparation. He went forward and crossed the winning post with Show Some Decorum, that colt was impressive on debut, winning by 2.5L. Behind them was Conceited, another winner on debut. This guy then went to Moonee Valley for his debut and ran 3rd behind the eventual Blue Diamond winner, Tagaloa. CLEAN MACHINE has always jumped out very nicely. The race she contested on debut, rated well on the clock for that class and she has been given plenty of time to improve. Backing both. Next best for Tri and F4, #10,11,13. 

CAULFIELD R3 #4  ARCTIC WOLF  $9.10 #6  MATSUMOTO $14.00

Zahra earned his riding fee getting Arctic Wolf home last start. I expected him to win a bit easier than he did and most punters were in the same boat. The form from the race has stood up well with the 2nd placed horse Cabinho breaking his maiden the following start by 2L. I was filthy with #6 MATSUMOTO when he won on debut. I was pretty keen on American Whiskey there, but he spoiled the party. American Whiskey has won since to frank the form and I think this colt can be competitive again if he repeats that performance.

NEWCASTLE R3 #9  BIANCHI CUP $21.50

Was ok on debut when running 6th in a fast run maiden. Has been given plenty of time to improve and was strong through the line in most recent trial when the blinkers went on. Looks big odds and worth an eachway ticket. Next best #11 KISS AND TELL is worth having a saver on.

NEWCASTLE R4 #12  WHATYOULOOKINGAT $6.10

I thought she ran well on debut after catching the eye in her trial. I think the first two home there at Newcastle look above average and she was not beaten far when running 3rd. She will obviously strip fitter for the run and take some running down here over the 900m.

NEWCASTLE R6  #6 HONEY GO LIGHTLY $5.60

I made her a roughie pick last start when she ran 2nd behind Irish Angel. Both the races she has contested this preparation have rated well on the clock for that class and she can be competitive here again.

MORPHETTVILLE R2 #6  THREE TEARS $9.60

She looked pretty speedy winning a jump-out at Camperdown before her debut. Lunar Fox was behind her in that jump-out and has subsequently won a group 2 at Flemington. She has been given plenty of time to improve since that run and the form from that race has been franked.

GUNDAGAI R1 #7 FLING $4.35

EX Hayes and Dabernig horse who has jumped out well before changing stables. These ex Vic horses can often break through once changing stables and heading up north. This might be the easiest race she has contested and a change in environment may have switched her on.
