WYONG R8 #9  TOE TAPPER $12.20

She put in a good run at Tamworth when coming off a 5 week freshen up. She was near last on the turn and then had to go eight horses wide to try and circle the field. The eventual winner, Blazing Tycoon was able to sneak a run through the field towards the rail. It was a good win last start at Scone, she sat three wide no cover the trip but still proved too strong late going away from her rivals. Looks a chance at each way odds.


This two-year-old colt  went around in a Ballarat jump-out at the end of June and crossed the line with Transfer Allowance and beat home Indiana Star who has subsequently won a benchmark 58. The next jump-out he was in a forward position and stuck on ok with Rocket Empire who is a multiple winner and there was a margin back to Gannett who has since bolted in.


This filly ran well enough first up when running 3rd behind Sanbuck. The trainer did mention pre-race she was a bit underdone and would improve from the outing. I am forgiving the last start at Cranbourne, she was caught wide and raced without cover at some stages.


This gelding showed good fight to win on debut at Terang. He looked to be collared late by Ocean Drive, but he kicked back on the line to get his head in front. The form from that race has been franked with Ocean Drive winning a maiden and the 3rd placed horse Mount Mitty winning a couple of races. The race at Flemington was a big step up in grade so he can be forgiven for not going well there and he has been given plenty of time, since that run.

PAKENHAM R8 #6  MODULO  $4.55 #13  GUNSABLAZIN’ $11.20

Modulo took a while to breakthrough for that maiden win but now that he has, he might be able to go on with it. He looks to take a bit of riding so Callow looks the perfect fit. GUNSABLAZIN’ was really poor last start at Murtoa but did do a bit of work early to find the lead. If he repeated the effort when winning at Bendigo, I think he would be competitive here.
