Late scratching from Sundays bounce
QUADDIE PICKS (races 5-6-7-8):
1,3,4,8 – 1,6,9,10 – 3,5,7,10 – 1,2,3,6
No 11 THINK DIAMONDS Resuming but is down in grade and looks a serious chance to break its maiden status after a few unlucky placings. Tried hard last start back in July at Flemington when beaten by 2.5 lengths. Has the form.
No6 RYAN’S FENDER
No7 YUE FEI
No6 TRISTANO Huge debut run a fortnight ago at Mildura and looks ready to fire second up today. Flew home from the tail of the field to be beaten by a length. Will strip fitter and could blow them away today. Stick with him.
No4 JUST ARTIE
No7 DELICATE GLANCE
No3 EMERGINE POET
No 12 DIXIE PREACHER Good debut run at Geelong and will strip fitter second up. Lost ground at a critical stage rounding the bend which proved costly at his debut. Win won’t shock and could start at decent value here today.
No4 ALBERT’S LASS
No7 BIG SHAKA
No6 ARLINGTON WAY
No2 MAI SHINY CHOICE Racing in career best form of late and will be looking to make it a hattrick of victories here today. Goes up slightly in class but its solid form of late should prove too good for this lot. Drawn perfectly and looks the one to beat once again.
No7 MR MAGPIE
No4 BAREFOOT TYCOON
No4 TREMBLING Resuming here today but did show promise last preparation with a good debut victory at Yarra Valley by 2.4 lengths. Drawn to settle behind the speed and will be looking for the gaps to appear in the home straight. Looks a big chance over this distance range.
No1 CUBAN MISSILE
Noo8 WHAT A HOOT
No9 SOMETHING VIOLET (BEST BET) Huge class drop gives this Commands filly a huge chance here today. Tried hard in town last start beaten by in form galloper Crown Witness who could be a star in the making. Won’t face an easier race than it faces today and does look extremely hard to beat. Ready to fire and is suited here to win and win well.
No1 DOMINANT WAY
No 10 HOPE YOU DON’T MIND
No6 DOC’S HERO
No3 RED VELVET SWING Forget its last start and go on her strong win two starts back at Geelong winning by an astonishing 4.5 lengths when settling near the rear rounding the bend. Looks the one to beat back in this grade and drawn to settle on the rail or one out near the rear. Will fly home. .
No 10 CRUISIN
No2 PETRACCA Racing well since returning from a spell without saluting but does looks a huge chance to bounce back into the winner’s circle. Just failed last start by a nose when coming home very strong from well back at Pakenham. Trainer and Jockey have a superb strike rate when combining. Hard to go past.
No1 ROBBO THE BOLD
No6 PENNY TO SELL
No3 INNER STRENGTH
