PRINCESS CYNISKA (3) was headed off at the start and got shuffled back on the markers when a close up sixth at Cranbourne on Sunday. She has only been placed once in 17 attempts but hasn’t been far away at her two runs back from a break and should go well from her good draw. ALL EXCLUSIVE (6) possesses early pace and finished fifth (2m) after leading at Cranbourne two starts back. He was beaten by a handy one in Keepers Daughter last time and is worth thought against this line up. GORDONS VILLE (4) possesses a good turn of speed and was runner up at Terang three starts back so is not without a chance. SELECTIONS: SECRET AIM (1), Princess Cyniska (3), All Exclusive (6), Gordons Ville (4) RATINGS: 1/ 3,6/ 4/ 8 SUGGESTED BET: SECRET AIM (1) to win John Caldow Fr 13.00 Bradley Forge Fr 21.00 2 Radfords Butchers 1.02 2205m. $5000.

WHOLELOTASOUND (6) is resuming since a tenth at Globe Derby in July but he has ability and meets a winnable race first up. He has performed well in Victoria in the past and is worth following. THE DELIRAMA (8) finished handily for fourth at Cranbourne on Sunday and has a perfect trailing draw behind INTHEDEADOFNIGHT (2) so is worth thought on an each way basis. JASPERS BABE (5) wasn’t beaten far behind A Falcon Can at Yarra Valley last outing and is a minor place chance in the event. SELECTIONS: MASTER VISION (4), Wholelotasound (6), The Delirama (8), Jaspers Babe (5) RATINGS: 4/ 6/ 8/ 2,5,7 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,5,6,8/ 4,5,6,8/ 2,4,5,6,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 41.66%) Steve Austen Fr 9.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr 17.00 3 W’gul Retravision 1.37 2205m. $5000.

ALBY ALBERT (7) is a former Tasmanian pacer, which makes his debut for trainer Dean Braun. He is terribly drawn but has handy form and looks well placed in this line up. BELEPHERON (5) pushed forward to find the lead and was struggling from the 700m but kept kicking strongly for seventh (8m) in a tougher Moonee Valley claimer last time. That was his first run for a month and he should be fitter so he is worth an investment. NEDS DELIGHT (6) settled at the tail of the field from the handicap of 20m and couldn’t work into the race at Geelong last outing. He was runner up to the in-form pacer Walton Flyer prior and is worth another chance. MY MAN SUNSHINE (9) is awkwardly drawn on the inside of the second line but is usually competitive against the claiming class and is worth consideration. SELECTIONS: ALBY ALBERT (7), Belepheron (5), Neds Delight (6), My Man Sunshine (9) RATINGS: 7/ 5,6/ 9,10,11/ field SUGGESTED BET: Leigh Sutton Fr 8.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr ?3.70 Ian Dornauf Fr 8.00 Flexi Trifecta 5,6,7/ 5,6,7,9,10,11/ 1,2,5,6,7,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 22.22%) 4 Kingston Trophies 2.12 1785m. $5000. 3A0 to 3A1 3yo PBD Mobile 1 25359 BIG MAJORITY 2 85362 MAYWYN A MOTZA 3 4 46418 URBAN ICON 5 99580 VIATROSS 6 67956 LOMBO COUSTEAU 7 15395 BRUTUS SMITH Second Line 8 45s29 RICH PICKINGS 9 37674 SMOOTH + Craig’s call: BRUTUS SMITH (7) began quickly from the second row to find a forward position but was shuffled back mid-race and raced fiercely before being wide in the final circuit so had excuses at his latest fifth. He is a handy colt and is worth an investment. BIG MAJORITY (1) has always shown promise but hasn’t won in 12 starts for the season. He is much better drawn than his latest ninth at Cranbourne where he struck trouble and an improved performance would not surprise. RICH PICKINGS (8) was placed behind the handy type Jaccka Felix in March and has been freshened since his latest ninth. He has a trailing draw and is worth thought on an each way basis. SMOOTH (9) finished a distant fourth in a fast mile rate at Geelong where he picked up some ground from midfield and is not without a chance. SELECTIONS: BRUTUS SMITH (7), Big Majority (1), Rich Pickings (8), Smooth (9) RATINGS: 7/ 1,8/ 9/ 10 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,7,8/ 1,7,8,9/ 1,7,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 74.07%) 10 87741 KAMWOOD RAIDER 11 798 MIDNIGHT TANGO Chris Alford Fr 3.50 Shane Hoban Fr 9.00 Scott Dyer Fr 21.00 John Caldow Fr 34.00 9s4 BROTHER FRANCIS Q1 Phillip Percy Fr 3.70 Glenn Hunter Fr 11.00 Annetto Mifsud Fr 10.00 Scratched Fr — Jodi Quinlan Fr 34.00 Shane McGuinness Fr 21.00 Simone Walker Fr ?3.20 Craig Rail’s specials: BEST BET: HARNESS RACING TODAY Harold Park Dalmont Charli (Race 6, No. 1) BEST VALUE: Brialinger Boy (Race 5, No. 2) BEST ROUGHIE: Royal Crime (Race 3, No. 11) Rail’s $50 Flexi Quaddie for 69.44% 1,7,8,9/ 2,3,6/ 1,2,6/ 3,8 5 Jim Fawkner M’rial 2.47 2205m. $5000.

He should have finished much closer and dashed home for an eye-catching sixth (6m) prior so he is worth following here. TCEESAFLYN (3) tried to lead throughout when gunned down by GET ON BOARD (6) at Cranbourne last outing. He places more often than he wins but is nearing a win against this class. GET ON BOARD (6) had little luck in the latter stages when fifth to Leicitsafe at Yarra Valley after winning at Cranbourne. He has early pace and should be competitive against this line up. FLIGHTTONULLY (8) is awkwardly drawn on the inside of the second line but is racing in career best form and is a winning chance with the right luck in running. SELECTIONS: BRIALINGER BOY (2), Tceesaflyn (3), Get On Board (6), Flighttonully (8) RATINGS: 2,3/ 6/ 8/ 1,9 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,3,6/ 2,3,6/ 1,2,3,6,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 6 Drouin Signs Pace 3.22 1785m. $5000.

YMBRO COCO (2) hasn’t won in 7 starts this preparation but has maintained a consistent form-line and is drawn to go well. SUKARI (6) is a short course specialist, which gets into this race nicely with a concession claim. Her past three unplaced efforts have come against much tougher opposition so an improved effort would not surprise. WESTERN CONNECTION (8) is resuming since February but will be fitter for several recent trial efforts and has the perfect trailing draw behind DALMONT CHARLI (1) so is a place chance via the sprint lane. SELECTIONS: DALMONT CHARLI (1), Ymbro Coco (2), Sukari (6), Western Connection (8) RATINGS: 1/ 2,6,8/ 3/ 4? 7,9,10 SUGGESTED BET: DALMONT CHARLI (1) to win 7 Rapidvite Pace 1 s9406 ROSE DANJOU 2 63628 PENNY GAL 3 31111 BLYTON BROMAC NZ 4 223s6 SWIFT CULLEN NZ 5 1607s SHOVANISTIC 6 64747 CALATRAVA 7 01828 THE VALLEY KNIGHT Second Line 8 23332 POCKET LEGEND NZ 9 s0768 THE PIPER NZ 10 67859 CAMLIGHT 3.58 Q4 2205m. $5000.

This race is no harder and she is the horse to beat again. POCKET LEGEND (8) has been placed at his past six starts and was held up for a run at a vital stage before finishing fast for second to Christian Melody last time. He couldn’t have drawn worse than the inside of the second line but he looks to be the main danger to BLYTON BROMAC (3). SWIFT CULLEN (4) was resuming since March when he dropped back to last from a wide draw and couldn’t work into the race in a slick final half of 57.7 seconds last week. He should be better for that run and is a place chance. PENNY GAL (2) is also a place hope from her good draw. SELECTIONS: BLYTON BROMAC (3), Pocket Legend (8), Swift Cullen (4), Penny Gal (2) RATINGS: 3/ 8/ 4/ 2,5,7,9 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 3/ 4,8/ 2,4,5,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 200%) 8 3GG Trotters Hcp 4.38 2620m. $5000.

This race is a little easier and she should be prominent throughout. STAR SPANGLED RAMA (6) galloped away and lost all chance when eleventh at Cranbourne last outing. She is a very strong mare and finished fourth behind Taison prior so she is worth another chance. STAR OF JORDAINE (7) had every chance when fourth to Tender Don last outing but will find this to be an easier assignment and she rates as an each way chance. ASTRA NOMIS (8) was always in the second half of the field when eighth at Cranbourne on Sunday but should be fitter for that run and won three races at the beginning of the year. SELECTIONS: GLADYS EMANUEL (3), Star Spangled Rama (6), Star Of Jordaine (7), Astra Nomis (8) RATINGS: 3,6/ 7/ 8/ 2,5/ field SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 3,6,7/ 3,6,7,8/ field (Cost $20, which gives 24.69%) Sprint Lane: No Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7.

She is perfectly drawn and has a good record so she is worth an investment. HAVA BONVOYAGE (9) led throughout and dashed home in a fast final half of 56.4 seconds when he beat the top mare Lady Lexus at Newcastle then couldn’t work into the race from an awkward draw last week. He is a talented pacer and is worth another chance. DEADLY HANDSOME (8) is a tough type, which battled on strongly for third to Cosimo Bromac last week. He should receive a nice trail from his perfect draw behind ANNIE CULLEN (1) and rates as an each way chance. The Goulburn pacer KIMBERLY STREET (4) is the query runner of the event. She has won her past two races against easier opposition at Canberra but recorded fast time on each occasion and has a very good strike rate. G W McElhinney Ft 8.00 SELECTIONS: ANNIE CULLEN (1), Hava Bonvoyage (9), Deadly Handsome (8), Kimberly Street (4) SUGGESTED BET: ANNIE CULLEN (1) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,8,9/ 1,4,8,9/ 1,4,8,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 55.55%) 2 Pace 1 33424 PROMISES KEPT NZ 2 5108s DEATH AND TAXES 3 22411 DANCING GODDESS 4 11181 JENNAS RANGER Second Line 8 12114 BOMBORA LOMBO 9 114s3 DRUMFIRE 7 22164 HALF DIAMOND LOU Craig’s call: SLICK BROMAC (10) is rising in class on his latest efforts but produced an enormous run to win at Parkes last outing where he recorded a final half of 56.6 seconds from the “death seat” position. He is a strong type and is capable of taking the next step forward. JACKSON GRANT (11) finished hard and would have won in a few more strides when a close third last week. He has been placed in 8 of his past 9 starts and looks well placed with the aid of a concession claim. DRUMFIRE (9) was resuming since November when he finished third to the Carousel winner Trusty Courage at Menangle. He has a very consistent record and should be competitive here. PROMISES KEPT (1) possesses early pace and should continue her good form from the pole position. SELECTIONS: SLICK BROMAC (10), Jackson Grant (11), Drumfire (9), Promises Kept (1) SUGGESTED BET: SLICK BROMAC (10) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 9,10,11/ 1,9,10,11/ 1,3,4,6,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 44.44%) 10 52111 SLICK BROMAC NZ 11 22213 JACKSON GRANT J T O’Shea (C cl) Ft 7.00 3 Trotters C’ship 11 94330 PINKSTWOTTER 12 58763 JAZZ LEGEND NZ 6 37708 TILTHESUNGOESDOWN NZ 7 70060 JOSHUA ROBERT NZ 8 87748 TWENTYTWOTEN 9 82224 RAYLEIGHS CROWN 10 34241 LA MOSCA Craig’s call: The Victorian trotter LA MOSCA (10) forged to the lead on the home turn and just held off the fast finishing SUNNY STONE (4) when he won the Prelude of this race last week. He should be further improved by that effort and looks hard to beat again. THE UPPER CRUST (13) pushed forward to race on the outside of the leader and put the pressure on a long way from home when he bounced back to his best form two weeks ago then was last throughout on Friday night. He will be suited by the staying trip and is worth another chance. JAZZ LEGEND (12) worked to the line quite nicely for third last week. That was his best run for some time and he should be running to the line strongly again. BOLD ADAM (5) uncharacteristically galloped away and made up a lot of ground when seventh (11m) in the Prelude of this race last week. He is a good chance of stepping to the front and will be suited over the staying trip. SELECTIONS: LA MOSCA (10), The Upper Crust (13), Jazz Legend (12), Bold Adam (5) SUGGESTED BET: LA MOSCA (10) to win EXOTIC BET: Quinella 5,10,12,13 (Cost $6) 13 93510 THE UPPER CRUST NZ 14 454s6 MASTER MAORI G W Bennett 10 21.00 D J Binskin 10 15.00 G L Newton (C) 10 26.00 R B Byrnes 20 13.00 B P Fitzpatrick 20 5.50 A R Bertwistle 20 21.00 D R Hancock 30 7.00 M C Rolfe 30 ?5.00 G W Innes 30 26.00 P Sapio Ft ?5.00 4 Pace 3 89616 CEDAR VALLEY NZ 4 11113 ESPRIT DE KAYJAY 5 36188 RIVER WILD 6 s5066 JILLIBY RIO 1 s7004 JUST RACHAEL 2 93677 VICKISHALO Second Line 8 64832 MERRYWOOD PRINCE 9 25222 TORPEDO BAY NZ 7 83843 LENNY BROMAC NZ 8.00 Q1 1760m. $14000.

TORPEDO BAY (9) has been runner up at four of his past five starts and boxed on strongly behind the smart pacer Rohan Home last time. He has a trailing draw and is nearing a win against this class. CEDAR VALLEY (3) races best over the sprint distance and led throughout to win two starts back. This is a substantial rise in class but she is likely to lead out then take a trail behind ESPRIT DE KAYJAY (4) so she is a strong place hope. LENNY BROMAC (7) did some work and boxed on gamely for third to Karloo Mick last week. He has a tough draw but is capable of running into a place.

He has been placed in all of his five starts and is drawn to go close. NOMOREBETS (6) is undefeated from three attempts and led throughout to win comfortably at Newcastle last week. This is a rise in class but he has looked impressive to date. GENTLEMANS CROSSING (5) was beaten narrowly by NORTHERN FRONTIER (2) at Young and endured a tough run behind the brilliant juvenile Two Eye Cee last outing. He is a very experienced gelding and is tough enough to overcome the wide draw. COL WALKER (1) won at his first two attempts prior to a seventh to NORTHERN FRONTIER (2). He is drawn to receive every chance and is not without a chance.

She returns from Group 1 success in Brisbane and looks too good for this field. ART PRINCESS (4) missed out in the Australian Gold at Moonee Valley but has raced well since and has the good strike rate of 5 wins from 9 starts. She possesses early pace and is a strong Quinella chance. MORGAN ABBY (6) impressively won a heat of the Australian Gold and didn’t have a great deal of luck in the final. She performed ordinarily at Wagga but is capable of a better performance. DESTINY DREAMS (2) is a minor place chance from her ideal draw and STRONG SAPPHIRE (9) is worth thought in multiple combinations.

MIKE BRENNAN (5) finished unplaced in the Bathurst Gold Crown but endured a very tough run and has done well in three races since. He dashed home in fast final sections to win at Parkes last outing and is worth thought. MAJOR ART (9) is the least experienced horse in the field but over-raced badly and boxed on gamely for second at Newcastle last week. He obviously has ability and should be improved by the experience. JUST A BLUE CHIP (4) has a consistent record and followed a second to MIKE BRENNAN (5) at Parkes with a strong win at Penrith. He is an honest type with place claims.

She is perfectly drawn and is capable of keeping her undefeated record in tact. LILAC STRIDE (9) was runner up in both heat and final of the Nursery Pace in Brisbane and took out the Linden Huntley Little Memorial at Bulli earlier in the year. She has the perfect trailing draw and is one of the leading chances. CENTENNIAL ROSE (4) has a consistent record and was placed in a heat of the Australian Gold at Moonee Valley two starts back. She tried hard when second to Art Princess last time and is worth thought on an each way basis. ARTIFICE (10) led and set a very slow speed when she won her heat of this series at Newcastle last outing. She finished eighth (5m) in the Australian Gold prior and is a place hope in this event.
