Sticking with NICCI BY NAME to break through after just finishing out of the placings at Cranbourne three weeks back, beaten by less than a length. Has drawn well and should settle in a positive position just behind the speed and with her good turn of foot she will be coming home hard in the straight. Solid claims.
1st: No8 NICCI BY NAME 2nd: No11 Shamrock; 3rd: No1 Acantha; 4th: No4 Eclipse Miss
Drawn to get the run of the race sees the David Pfieffer lightly raced mare PRAHAAR a serious chance to atone for her last start defeat. Chased hard but couldn’t reel in Adamina when finishing 1.2 lengths behind the gelding first-up at Hawkesbury a fortnight back. Will strip fitter for that run and looks ready to give this an almighty shake. Ready to win!
1st: No1 PRAHAAR 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No3 Another Shadow; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No7 Dapples; 4th: No9 Shebrings Luck
NO DREAMS ALL HOPE (BEST BET) has been racing in red-hot form since resuming from a break and looks poised to be very competitive once again here today. Go on his 1.5 length victory at Pakenham two starts back when defeating Shezandi As before finishing half a length behind Sneak Preview at Dubbo a fortnight ago. Drawn to be in the finish and looks the one they all need to beat. Top Pick.
1st: No2 NO DREAMS ALL HOPE 2nd: No4 Elusive Shine; 3rd: No3 Mutual Respect; 4th: No6 Shotgun Rosie
Looks a perfect race for the Darren Weir-trained PELONOMENA (NEXT BEST BET) to make it back-to-back victories after saluting at Bendigo in impressive fashion. Settled in a midfield position before unleashing a good turn of foot to claim her rivals and run away to a dominant 3.2 length win. Has drawn a tad wide but looks hard to beat going on previous efforts. Winning hope.
1st: No3 PELONOMENA 2nd: No1 Prince Of Brooks; 3rd: No8 Monte Carlo; 4th: No5 Zoffany Rose
*SCRATCHED* ALL POINTS WEST has placed twice from three starts to date and this lightly raced mare looks well placed to post her second victory here today. Finished less than a length behind Capannello at Echuca five weeks back when a gallant third. Did win well at Echuca back In June over this distance. Big show expected.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No3 ALL POINTS WEST 2nd: No1 Twilight Song; 3rd: No4 Kaplic; 4th: No2 Ultra Smart
