MADDY SHEFFIELD (10) is best suited on the front line and racing near the lead. Despite a second row draw can improve here after a recent placing at Bendigo and must be included.

Hard to beat. STARPICKET OSTI (8) has an awkward draw but was runner up this trip before winning at Wagga and a close second at Shepparton. Go close. NOTJUSTANOTHERAMA (7) has the wide draw but did win two on end before placings at two of his last three. Include in chances.

MAINTAIN (1) has the perfect draw first up from a spell. He was runner up three starts back at Echuca and has been placed in two recent trials, expect a forward showing. HEZAOPERATIVE (12) was runner up at Shepparton five starts back in June before a third here from outside the leader. His manners have let him down his last couple. This is not tough, strong claims. POCKET ACES (3) is resuming. She has been in the placings six times and could go well fresh. RACETRACK POWER (2) was runner up at West Wyalong three starts back. Place chances along with KILLALOEDREAMER (5), TENDER EARL (6) and SALJET (9). SELECTIONS: MAINTAIN (1), Hezaoperative (12), Pocket Aces (3), Saljet (9). RATINGS: 1, 12 / 3 / any other runner.

He was placed at his only run at Forbury Park in New Zealand from a stand and has trialled nicely here running good time. He draws a touch awkwardly tonight but he looks to have plenty of ability and with luck he can be in the finish. THE DOG SOLDIER (2) is a speedy type, draws ideally and the sprint trip is right up his alley. SUMMER ACE (11) (Aces N Sevens – Summer Lace) is on debut tonight for Craig Demmler. This fellow won a trial here three weeks ago and despite drawing poorly he should race well. PACIFICS BOY (3) was a good effort when third at Bendigo last time behind Mad Macca and from the draw he will continue his recent consistent form. SELECTIONS: THE EVANGELIST (8), The Dog Soldier (2), Summer Ace (11), Pacifics Boy (3) RATINGS: 8/ 2,3,10,11/ 1,6,9/ 4,7 SUGGESTED BET: THE EVANGELIST (8) each way 10 11 3 THE EVANGELIST NZ REGENCY STAR TORADO FELLA SUMMER ACE Craig Demmler Fr 8.00 2 Joe Hagebols Trot 6.30 2100m. $5000.

He won a heat of the Derby at Bendigo then finished a gallant third in the Final behind wonder filly Arizona Blue. He switches back to the stand tonight but he normally begins safely and he should go very close. Main danger is the resuming GENTLEMANS HONOUR (2). He hasn’t been seen since finishing fifth in Breeders Crown final behind Skyvalley who has taken all before him this season. He trialled nicely at Yarra Valley 15 days ago and has drawn nicely for his return. Strong place prospects to KEPT AT BRUSHGROVE (1) who had her chance at Maryborough last time but she is a good beginner and will be handy in the run, AIDAN ANABETTIN (13) is consistent but can be a bit risky from the tapes SELECTIONS: CARLETON HILL (9), Gentlemans Honour (2), Kept At Brushgrove (1), Aidan Anabettin (13) RATINGS: 2,9/ 1,5,13/ 4,6,7,8,11 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,9/ 1,2,5,9,13/ 1,2,5,9,13 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 12 28966 MY MATE MAL (Em1) 13 03314 AIDAN ANABETTIN 11 89743 STYLISH DUDE John Kelly 10 21.00 3 Tabcorp ABC Heat 7.05 2100m. $8000. 2yo Fillies RBD Mobile Heat Second Line 8 9 3 1327s NEVER WAVER LOMBO 4 53s79 REGAL THEORY 5 35s9 THIRTYSIXTOES 6 11249 MODERN GIRL 7 2561 FAYES MY GIRL 2 18375 LED SUITCASE 1 Assessment: MODERN GIRL (6) was a narrow second in the Gold Final behind Mach And Me three runs back at Moonee Valley, led and ran fourth in a heat of the Tatlow then she did things wrong in the run and finished near last in the Final. She had an easy trial hit out here last week and class should get her home. Place prospects go to LED SUITCASE (2) who was luckless at Moonee Valley last time out, NEVER WAVER LOMBO (3) resumes tonight but did win the Gold Tiara Consolation at Bathurst earlier in the season, FAYES MY GIRL (7) was a good winner at Echuca last start.

She has again drawn wide tonight but she is full of class and has a powerful sprint. MANDS GEARL (1) led all the way at Shepparton three back and has the alley to be in the finish along with CLANCY ROSE (9) who was a Kilmore winner two back beating the smart type Charlotte Brew, CROCODILE TEARS (7) and BERRY NICE LOMBO (8).

Her past two runs have been astonishing. She was an unlucky third to Rocknrolla in her Semi of the Vicbred then she hit the line hard to again run third behind the same filly in the Final. She draws to lead and break her maiden status in style tonight. MACH AND ME (7) is her only danger. She is the reigning Gold champion and although resuming since May she deserves respect. Trifecta and First Four hopes go to VALERO (9), MY LADY MACRAY (8) and WESTERN IMPACT (3).

GLEES HONOUR (2) is a speedy beginner who should lead early and if she gets a soft enough run she has claims along with the PARKLANE ROYAL (6) will be nearing her peak after two runs back from a spell, STAR CHEVAL (7) has a good turn of speed and should be running on late with TIS A CHARMER (10).

He was a dominant Yarra Valley winner last start and the stand won’t be a problem for him as he has had six goes for five wins and a second. OUR FALCONS A TACT (1) was an impressive Ballarat winner three back then has been slightly disappointing his past two. He hasn’t seen the tapes under race conditions but I’m sure Lance can get him away and from the good draw he shouldn’t be too far from the action. Plenty of place prospects with KHAN BAT KHAN BOWL (8), IM FLASH WITH CASH (4), PEPPERELL JEWEL (6), BEACHUWIN (5) and REGAL BALL (9) looking the ones to throw in your exotics.

She was gallant in defeat behind Rocknrolla in the Vicbred Final last start at Tabcorp Park and will go straight to the front and win by as far as you can kick your hat. She’ll be the shortest priced favourite all night so multiples are the go.
