CANBERRA R1 #1 LION’S ROAR $2.80 #6  SUNRISE RUBY $2.70

Both these gallopers won on debut and have been given time to improve. Bump into a few that are still maidens.

CANBERRA R3 #3  FRANKLY SAVVY $7.30

Today might be a tad short but I still think she might be good odds eachway. I liked the way she made a stack of ground past the winning post and went to the lead at the most recent trial. Next best and little saver on #4 ATTESTAR.

CANBERRA R4 #1  PROMESA $8.10  #7 TSUNAMI ARMY $20.50

PROMESA has always shown he would be capable of knocking off a maiden somewhere. Given plenty of time and recent trial against a few winners was good enough for this. TSUNAMI ARMY was first up off a break after changing stables when finishing 6th at Wagga. Can go better with the run under the belt.

CANBERRA R6 #2  DEEP CRYSTAL $1.58

Broke the maiden in really nice style by 4L last time she was at the races. Recent trial was against some nice sprinters and Twice as Special has subsequently won.  

BENDIGO R1 #6  STANNARY $2.05

Made ground against the in-form Category Five when first up. Strips fitter again and looks to have more upside than these.

BENDIGO R2 #4 DIAMOND THORA $10.60  #10  ZOUTONS $4.45

I thought Diamond Thora would run a big race first up after looking good in a jump-out against handy stablemate Monetizing. She was a bit far back but did hit the line and will appreciate the slight rise in distance here. #10 ZOUTONS is also worth a bet, he looked good in a Bendigo jump-out running faster time than Latenighttoughguy who is pretty smart and most recently won a Kerang jump-out. Last but not least including #13 RETURN TO ME in exotics, recently travelled well in a jump-out with Master Designer and Hinchpin was behind.

BENDIGO R3 #1 LUNCHTIME RED $10.20  #8  INFINITE MATRIX $8.70

The first two starts were promising. Finishing behind the handy American Whiskey and then 2nd to Miltida. A repeat of those performances would see him in the finish. INFINITE MATRIX gave us a sight at odds on debut when running 2nd. The 4th placed horse Redsnap has franked the form by winning.  Both horses look good winning chances at eachway odds.

BENDIGO R5 #6  VILLA VILLEKULLA $4.85

Broke through in style last time out. Won in fast time and can go through the grades.

BENDIGO R7 #6  BILLY MAV $8.60

Another one that just missed for us at odds when running 2nd at Geelong. Would have to improve up in distance and with the run under the belt.

TAREE R2 #8  DON’T TELL DION $19.20

Might have improved with the recent spell. Resumed with a trial win, beating a few that have already won a race. Worth something small at each way odds.

TAREE R3 #4 LOOKONCHINA $12.20 

Lookonchina has trialled up well enough for a maiden this preparation. Beating Zellymay and Gumshoe. He then finished 4th behind Tivoli Street who is much better than maiden grade and the 3rd placed horse Swatch has subsequently won.
