DOOMBEN R2 #10  LADY APPLETON $6.60

Big win last start at Ballina. She was last turning for home but showed a great turn of foot to win with a bit still in hand.

MOE R1 #6 MISS KINGSTON $2.95

Over raced a bit in the early stages when first up from a spell last start. Finished in front of Something Grand who I believe is above average and this looks a bit easier.

MOE R2 #11  DEORA $2.65

I think this Deep Field gelding moves like a nice horse. In the most recent jump-out at Cranbourne if the jockey asked him for an effort, I believe he could have picked up The Last Charge and Hellion of Cluster. The Last Charge was only beaten 2.2L in a group 3. He has also been heavily backed since markets have opened. Hopefully, the overs god is being kind for those that got the $4. Next Best #7 MOSHELLE DE CLASSE jumped out well before the debut and the blinkers go on for the first time.

ROUGHIE MOE R3 #7 EUPNEA LADY $35.00

Was well beaten on debut behind the smart Pinkham. Did jump-out with some handy types like Ms Catherine and Morrisey before the first run and is capable of improvement.

MOE R4 #8 TAKATOKA $3.15 #1 CHINA GROVE $9.50

I made this gelding a best bet a few weeks ago after I thought he ran well first up at Seymour. The 3rd placed horse Tovolo Gap franked the form by winning, following that Seymour run.  He then came out at Moe and after being heavily backed, was three wide no cover the trip. The race rated well on the clock for a maiden. CHINA GROVE did a really good job first up off a spell to run 3rd. He led there and set a fast pace, with the run under the belt now over the 2000m he should improve out of sight.

ROUGHIE

MOE R8 #20 JUNGLE PRINCESS $35.00

Was well respected by the market when resuming off a long spell at Warrnambool. It was a heavy 10 that day and a lot of horses struggled through the going. Could still be improving and this is a very average 0-58.

NEWCASTLE R4 #9 AWAKINO $2.40

I was with this grey colt on debut when he only found one better. He looks to me like he will keep improving as he steps up in distance and the winner of that race, Marsannay has absolutely bolted in when stepping up in grade.

NEWCASTLE R6 #7 CANADIAN SPICE $3.90

I thought this filly by Vancouver was super at her first trial. Dubai Star caught everyone’s attention by winning the trial by 3.5L but this filly made a stack of ground late and was level with Dubai Star a distance past the winning post. She then went to a listed race on debut and ran a nice 3rd after doing a few things wrong, beginning awkwardly and then over-racing. The recent trial was impressive again. Next Best #5 MINIFINN.

COFFS HARBOUR R1 #9  HAPPY SOCKS $4.95

Should be fairly fit by now, third up since heading north from Victoria. Drops 4kg and can give them something to catch if they go forward.

COFFS HARBOUR R2 #2 SWATCH $1.86

Trialled up well finishing 3rd behind Tivoli Street and Gillick’s Way.
