Top show. GREAT SAINT (4) has been racing in stronger claimers than this. Expect an improved showing. MISTER CHEQUEBOOK (9) was placed in a Terang claimer four starts back. HEI COMMAND (7) also has ability when right and should be ready to show his best after three runs from a spell. THE ALBERTS (3) won a similar event five starts back. Don’t dismiss.

She followed a Cobram win with a second there last time after being held up. Strong chance. JORDAN ASHLEIGH (9) has been no worse than fourth at six runs from a break. A Terang winner last start over the short course, should figure in the finish. AS IT IS IN HEAVEN (7) has a wide draw and has been freshened up since racing in strong company in Qld. Go well.

This is tougher but has a top chance to complete the hat trick. D B DAZZLER (3) has been placed at eight of his last 11 starts. He followed a strong placing at Moonee Valley in good company with a tough win at Warragul. Strong claims. VICTREOS (1) won second up from a spell back in March. Not far away at last couple of placings and has the draw to be right in the finish. MISTER BALLYMURPHY (2) won two on end before a spell. He resumed at Geelong when disappointing and has been freshened up again. Don’t dismiss him or RULETTE (12) who resumes from a spell and did win a recent Geelong trial. GALVERON (10) goes best over the short course but was a strong winner at Shepparton from outside the leader. OPERATIVE CARD (4) led all the way at Kilmore second up from a break over the short trip. Trifecta chance. KOKODA COURAGE (6) will be improved by his first up effort at Warragul when held up. Place along with DANCE WITH ARMBRO (8) who is better than three starts from a break suggest.

The one to beat. SCANLON (11) is racing well with placings at Kilmore and Bendigo before winning over this trip over PACIFIC GALE (9) last start. Freshened up, go well. HOOKNROB (3) was placed six starts on end before joining John Nicholson for his most recent effort. Has claims. PACIFIC GALE (9) could run into the placings on his second here followed up with a tough Bendigo win. GYPSY CRUISER (6) broke through last start at Cranbourne in slow time and DONT POKE THE BEAR (5) who won at Terang three starts back. Both have trifecta chances.

An easy heat winner over SECRET TENDER (11) at Warragul makes him hard to beat. TOGETHER WE DO (7) hasn’t fared well in the draw but will be better for his two runs from a break. Strong claims. CONFIGURATION (10) won well at Ballarat before a strong effort at Moonee Valley and then a strong heat win. Top chance. SECRET TENDER (11) is racing in top form and did do it tough in his Warragul heat. Each way. Trifecta chances to BECARDA STAR (1) from the ideal draw, SIRNELSON OF ASCOT (2) who won a heat using the sprint lane, CRUSADERS CASTLE (3) who did it tough in that heat, PARASITE (8), BON JELLA (9) and VINTAGE JAG (12) who will strip fitter.

He raced well in strong company last season and has won a recent Geelong trial. Go close first up. OUR AYTHREEEIGHTY (10) was runner up on debut before winning at Maryborough. He ran on ok last start at Geelong and should figure in the finish. CHIPMONT LAD (11) was disappointing in that race. His prior form was good, give another chance. OUR SOLAR FLARE (9) has done it tough at his last couple. He sat wide when not far away at Kilmore last time. Strong chance. HAPPY MAORI (7) has been freshened up since leading at Cobram when beaten into third in quick time. Has claims. SANTO DOMINGO (8) led last start at Bendigo when runner up. Awkward draw here but should be included in your multiples. SELECTIONS: FORWARD PRESS (12), Our Aythreeeighty (10), Chipmont Lad (11), Our Solar Flare (9). RATINGS: 10, 12 / 7, 9, 11 / 6, 8.

HEY ROCK (5) has put three wins on end, including talking the scalp of the outstanding pacer Boris Badenov last start. The barrier is a bit of a concern, but is racing in great form. Stable mate BOMBORA LOMBO (1) has drawn perfectly and is the main danger. HAVA BONVOYAGE (7) is a talented pacer and can’t be taken lightly, although the outside of the front line starting position is a worry. KING COURAGE (2) has plenty of ability and is capable of winning, but can do things wrong. JASPER GOLD (9) should be running on at the need, but will need luck to win. APPEAL PENDING (6) has drawn awkwardly, but has got the speed to make his presence felt. THE CONCIERGE (3) is not without a place chance. SELECTIONS: HEY ROCK (5), Bombora Lombo (1), Hava Bonvaoyage (7), Kings Courage (2) SUGGESTED BET: HEY ROCK (5) to win EXOTIC BET: Trifecta 1,5 / 1,5,7 / 1,2,5,6,7,9.

He has been down on form since resuming and despite the wide draw he’s the main winning hope. EARNIES KEEP (5) has been racing consistently without winning, but can’t be discounted here. ARTESIAN BOY (3) looked ok when running second in fast time first up. He was beaten a fair way, but drops in class. Inncidently (4) is a chance in a race like this. She won four starts ago and hasn’t been too far away is her last three. ROYAL CRIME (6) is visiting from Victoria, where he was placed at Moonee Valley five starts ago, but hasn’t won in around two years. BENOWA (10) is a place chance on his last start third.

He’s drawn the inside of the back row and will need luck, but is certainly firing at the moment. PACE AND VISION (7) has good tactical speed, but will need it to overcome another tough draw. Looked flat last start, but should improve here. ITSOKAYTOBEFAKE (1) is drawn to get the run of the race from pole. He’s been racing consistent and should be in the finish. Lord Bronson (9) has been racing like a rejuvenated pacer of late and shouldn’t be overlooked. DENS BLUE BEEJAY (3) was disappointing last start, but on his previous start would be competitive. DEBT FREE (10) lead all the way last start, but has not drawn well here. REVILO JACK (5) will need to be greatly improved on his first up effort, bas always shown ability.

Despite drawing the outside of the field, he’s the testing material. HALF DIAMOND LOU (6) is very tough and consistent and should be put into the race at some stage. RIVER WILD (3) should be in the finish from the good draw. He has good speed and should be there abouts. VICKISHALO (5) is a quality mare, but has been down on form. A turn around would not be a surprise. MERRYWOOD DUCHESS (4) is another mare struggling to find her best, but the small field should suit her. Stable mates ROYAL SUSPECT (1) and ROYAL JASPER (2) will both need to improve.

From the pole MISS MERRYLANDS (1) should be hard to beat. She’s from a very strong stable and looks the one to beat. SURFING STAR (6) was very strong last start at Harold Park, making a mid- race move outside the leader before holding off her rivals. JOY CEE DEE (10) looked good on debut for new stable, a definite chance. Lockton Loaded (5) is a quality mare, which never runs a bad race. Keep safe. LUNA SANDS (8) should get a nice run following Miss Merrylands. ULTRA TRENDY LOMBO (3) will need to improve, but is good enough to be in the finish on her best form. SHEZ SERENE (2) has got a good draw and is capable of filling a place. CATCH AS CATCH CAN (9) is not without a place hope, but will need things to go her way.

She scored at her only start in Oz and the small field will be an advantage. AURORA SWIFT (6) is the main danger. Her record is better than most in this race and looks the hardest to beat. SILVER TAIL LADY (7) is very consistent and despite the outside should right in the finish. Southerncrossdancer (4) is beautifully bred and has solid form, don’t dismiss. LIVELY NUMBER (1) is drawn well and hasn’t been too far away from her only four starts. TORRENTIAL HANNAH (2) hasn’t shown much in four starts and will need to improve greatly.

He should be able to control the race from his front row draw. PINKSTWOTTER (9) is the class runner of the race and not badly in from the 30 metres. Expect a bold showing. SONNY SULIBOP (6) hasn’t been far away and gets his chance to win a race here. Queensland visitor KUMBYA (8) has got good form in the sunshine state and shouldn’t be taken lightly. HAPPY VALENTINES (2) is from a strong stable is a definite chance. BUNKER (5) could be a knock out chance here at good odds.

She won narrowly first up, but in good time and she should continue to go through the grades. AROUND WEGO LOMBO (2) has good gate speed and should be able to take up a forward position. AN EYE FOR AN EYE (1) will get his chance from the pole. CLASSIC BEACH GIRL (5) was disappointing last start, but before that he form was excellent. SHARK N TATIE (6) has plenty of speed and should not be too far away. Heezgotattitude (9) has class and was much improved last start despite running fifth, but is well down on his juvenile form. ROTKARA RAMA (7) has good country form, but will need to step up, especially from the outside of the front line.
