SWAN HILL R2 #4  LUNCHTIME RED  $3.45 #16 SIR PETER $14.60

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.  SIR PETER jumped out well before the debut run. Given time and has jumped out well again, looking good late against Minola, Patriotic and Offtap. Tongue tie goes on and can run a race at odds. #8 NEW ECHELON can be included in exotics, looked to travel better than stablemate The Phantom Bantam in a jump-out.

SWAN HILL R4 #5  MARCHEECHI $2.55

Impressive winner on debut. She was then found to have the thumps when finishing a disappointing 9th at Pakenham. Looks to have returned in good order since the spell.

LISMORE R3  #10  LUCKY CHOICE  #9 APALALA

Was okay at Casino, finishing 4th behind Swatch who looks above average. Will appreciate the extra 100m and this looks a bit weaker. APALALA  made some late ground in the most recent trial, I’m Jacko won, and he has subsequently finished 2nd in Benchmark 58 grade.

LISMORE R5 #3  GILLICK’S WAY

Looks very hard to beat. Caught the eye when resuming in a trial this preparation and looked to travel well against Tivoli Street and subsequent winner Swatch. Will be fitter for the first up run and can go forward and win.
