CRANBOURNE: RACE 5 @ 3:20 PM

BLACK PENN (3) has progressed nicely in two runs back from a spell and looks ready to win out to this trip third up with the Blinkers going on. He can race handy to the speed from an inside draw and should be hard to hold out at the finish. DOGMATIC (1) is a talented horse on his day having mixed it with Smokin' Romans and Declares War over a middle distance last time in. He's suited first up in this grade and a forward showing wouldn't surprise. BUCKLAND ABBEY (4) ran out an easy Maiden winner second up last start when ridden closer. Although this is tougher he appeals each way now he's found winning form. PAINT ME RED (2) will make his own luck on speed but this is the outer limits of his distance range, so a clever ride will be required and no doubt provided by Newitt. PINDI PRIDE (9) only went down narrowly last start over this trip and she's ready to show her best approaching peak fitness and up in grade. SELECTION: Black Penn looks ready to win.

BALLINA: RACE 2 @ 2:05 PM

BONDURANT (5) displayed plenty of early toe over 1600m at this track last time, leading them into the lane before digging deep to win by a head. Has the pace to lead again and although up in grade gets a bit of weight relief. Hard to toss on a six-day turnaround. DORSET COAST (1) was sent out at $17 last time but ran above expectations and won over 1800m at Gold Coast. Goes very well here, never missing the frame in three starts. Serious threat. TOOTS IS TOPS (4) was a most impressive winner last time over 1410m at this track, scoring by 3 lengths to make it two on the trot. Record here is sound with three wins from eight starts. Should be involved in the finish again. MOUNT HEIDI (6) was 3.8 lengths away in third last time at this track after being in the firing line on cornering. Has not won for a long while but must be respected. KING FAROUK (8) has been in the money at all four runs over this trip. In the mix off the inside alley. SELECTION: #5 Bondurant to win again.

 

GILGANDRA: RACE 3 @ 2:30 PM

Former Godolphin galloper AMULET STREET (1) has done everything but win with seven placings from eight starts and will appreciate the drop in grade here. Has placed on all going and revved up for this with an easy Dubbo trial. Is clearly the one they all have to run down. ANSELMO (2) resumes but has placed two from two when fresh and gets 2kg off with the claim. Draws the inside alley and looks a serious danger. BERNFORME (3) put in a career-best performance when a close-up second when resuming and can go on with it now. In the mix. AMERICAN ANTHEM (9) is a consistent conveyance hitting the top five at her past nine outings. Looks a must for the multiples. SHE'S SUPER (11) has placed over this distance and may earn some minor money. SELECTION: Amulet Street to win.

 

SUNSHINE COAST: RACE 6 @ 4:05 PM (AEDT)

AMITY GAL (1) first starter who trialled like a first-up winner when scoring in a trial here by five lengths. Should be winning for fun. RUSTY ROSE (8) resumes from a spell of 42 weeks following a debut run at Ipswich when placing second of eight runners. Placed in both recent trials and is an each-way chance. IMMEDIATE RESPONSE (5) was in the money last start when running second at Sunshine Coast when resuming over 1000m. Will strip fitter today and won't be far away at the line. WATACHOICE (13) placed at long odds here last start when badly checked at the start. With clear-air today she can run into a place. SELECTION: Amity Gal looks best of good things here.

 

TERANG: RACE 6 @ 4:20 PM

SACRED PALACE (2) won two of last three runs before a spell, the latest in town at Caufield. Has won fresh and trip suits. Talented gelding with plenty of upside and rates the testing material off the low draw. DUNBRODY POWER (4) finished seventh last start beaten 3 lengths at Flemington over 1200m and the run was much better than it looked after a slow start. Strong chance to take this. KAAKIT AKIT (7) will be rock-hard fit now following a nice effort at Moonee Valley last start when fourth. HINT OF MINT (5) can play a role in the finish while fresh. SELECTION: Like Sacred Palace fresh.

 

ESPERANCE: RACE 4 @ 6:10 PM (AEDT)

ROYAL SOLDIER (1) has won his last two races on the course in style and in a short career to date looks to be very promising. There is no reason that he can't make it three in a row today. FAIR JUSTICE (5) closed strongly from midfield last start to just get up by a nose and finally reward her punters that have sent her out favourite at her last three outings. She will be suited to the mile more than most here and should be very hard to beat again. SALVARA (6) fought on well for her third placing last start in a similar sort of field and from her handy draw should be able to settle close to the pace. Has a good record here and should be included in all multiples. WARZACHANTZ (8) has gone to another level this season with two impressive wins to open his campaign. He is racing as though the extra 200 metres should be no problem and with some early luck will be right there at the finish. Watch closely. SELECTION: Royal Soldier win bet.
