No4 MULK will rise 1.5kg to 57.5kg on his last-start second in a 1400m maiden at Pakenham on May 18. The colt gets Damien Oliver replacing Andrew Mallyon and has a steady campaign behind him to say he can score his breakthrough win here.

No8 UNDER THE SEA showed she may be looking for further with a solid fourth over 1300m against her own sex in a 1300m maiden at Cranbourne on May 26. She had Craig Williams riding last time and gets Ben Thompson here, but his claim drops her weight to 53kg.




R2 – 1.30pm. Chef’s Hat Maiden – 1200m.

No5 NEW HORIZONS is a three-year-old colt by super galloper Frankel. Sure to create plenty of attention as he also hails from the stables of the record-breaking trainer Darren Weir. The Japanese bred colt has not trialled so there is no exposed form.


No13 VANITOSO is bound to strip fitter on his first-up second over 1100m at Bendigo on May 21. He has not fared well at the draw in gate 17 but he does have a good rider in Andrew Mallyon to partner. Makes appeal here.


No1 AEROVICTORY lived up to his trial form at his debut with a sound third over 1100m in a maiden at Bendigo on May 21. The form line out of the maiden is okay with another winner popping up from the race. Keep in mind here.


No8 SPEEDY ILLUSION was no match for the winner but did not surrender and kept on going when finishing second over 1100m in a maiden at Geelong on May 12. The blinkers come off here and from barrier two he should gain a soft run.
