Traralgon R10 – Grade 6 395m
STARSHIP VENUS (1) has begun her career in great style with two wins and a second from three starts. She has shown plenty of early speed so far and has drawn perfectly in box 1. Expect her to lead all the way. DR LYSANDRA (8) won well two runs back and wasn’t disgraced after a tardy getaway last start. She will find the line well and is the danger.
Geelong R10 – Grade 5 460m
MATT’S HOPE (7) has been dominant winning at Shepparton at his last couple of runs and should have no problems crossing the field to find the early lead. From there it will be a case of times and margins please. ERNIE PRANG (2) has improved at his last couple of Geelong runs and is capable of adding some value into exotics.
Tip: MATT’S HOPE @ $1.30
Mandurah R6 – FFA 405m
Ex-NSW chaser BONES McCOY (7) has thrived since moving to WA with five wins from eight Mandurah runs. He began well to win in Group 2 grade two runs back and has the speed to overcome the trick draw. CITY MONELLI (5) is another chaser who thrives at Mandurah and IF he can find the rails first he will be hard to catch. The pair can space their rivals.
