TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 TAB ABC Repechage 12.38 2190m. $7000. 3yo Trotters RBD Mobile Repechage 1 24226 DOCTOR SAM 2 81425 SASSY PINEVALE 3 27s14 GO AHEAD MAKEMYDAY 4 47749 RED HOT SPECIAL 5 080s7 KYVALLEY ALLEY NZ 6 13312 ARIZONA BLUE 7 036d0 FORWARD PRESS Second Line 8 51039 ZANZI BROMAC Scott Dyer Fr 26.00 Daryl Douglas Fr 26.00 Chris Lang Fr 7.00 Damian Wilson Fr 34.00 Chris Lang Jr (C) Fr 26.00 John Ogden Fr ★1.20 Jodi Quinlan Fr 15.00 David Murphy Fr 7.00 Craig’s call: ARIZONA BLUE (6) galloped at the start and produced a massive performance to finish second to Down Under Muscles in a heat of this series and brilliantly won the Victoria Derby prior. She is clearly the best horse in the field and will take beating with a foolproof display. GO AHEAD MAKEMYDAY (3) won narrowly at Maryborough when resuming then worked hard behind Down Under Muscles last time. He is nicely drawn for this assignment and looms as the main threat to ARIZONA BLUE (6). SASSY PINEVALE (2) picked up late ground when a nice fifth in the same race last week and should give a bold showing from her good draw. DOCTOR SAM (1) is a place chance from the pole position. SELECTIONS: ARIZONA BLUE (6), Go Ahead Makemyday (3), Sassy Pinevale (2), Doctor Sam (1) RATINGS: 6/ 3/ 2/ 1,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi First Four 6/ 2,3/ 1,2,3,8/ 1,2,3,8 (Cost $20, which gives 166%) 2 TAB ABC Repechage 1.14 2190m. $7000. 3yo Trotters RBD Mobile Repechage 1 58504 MY GIRL SUNNY 2 s6568 FIERY CHIP 3 74146 LIFE ON THE LINE 4 46260 KING KONG COOMA 5 51323 CARLETONHILL 6 11142 AFTANOONDELITE 7 235s7 HAPPY MAORI Second Line 8 s9695 SUPER PETITE Damian Wilson Fr 51.00 Paul Paton Fr 34.00 Chris Alford Fr 7.00 Peter Way Fr 26.00 Kerryn Manning Fr 2.50 Lisa Miles Fr ★1.80 Chris Lang Jr (C) Fr 9.00 Patrick Ryan Fr 26.00 Craig’s call: AFTANOONDELITE (6) ran into a clear second and momentarily looked a threat to the winner Let Me Thru when runner up last outing. She won both the South Australian Oaks and Derby in June so will take beating here. CARLETONHILL (5) is a fast beginner from the mobile and led out prior to taking a trail when third to Down Under Muscles last time. He was placed in the Victoria Derby three starts back and is usually foolproof so he is worth following. HAPPY MAORI (7) broke at the start and lost her chance when resuming since a fifth in the Super Series Final. She is a talented filly and is a winning chance with a safe getaway. LIFE ON THE LINE (3) was shuffled back on the markers and had little luck behind Down Under Muscles last time. She won a race of slightly easier standard at Maryborough three starts back but has the ability to figure prominently. SELECTIONS: AFTANOONDELITE (6), Carletonhill (5), Happy Maori (7), Life On The Line (3) RATINGS: 6/ 5,7/ 3 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 3,5,6,7 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 3 TAB ABC Repechage 1.49 2190m. $8000. 2yo Trotters RBD Mobile Repechage 1 764 BILL PEPPERELL 2 37466 WISHING WEARL NZ 3 53025 MATTNABBEY 4 85783 ENJOY A MALABU 5 99732 LA STELLA 6 Second Line 8 42427 IM CHILLED 9 986 WEARY POCKETS 7 MAN OF THE WORLD 7 22393 LOUEY LOUEY LOUEY Chris Alford Fr 34.00 Greg Sugars Fr 21.00 Ashley Matthews Fr 6.00 Damian Wilson Fr 21.00 Ross Payne Fr 5.00 Neil McCallum Fr 34.00 Kate Gath Fr ★2.60 Scott Dyer Fr 2.70 Kerryn Manning Fr 26.00 Craig’s call: LOUEY LOUEY LOUEY (7) trailed the eventual winner Rostevarren and tried hard for third behind that star trotter last outing. He has a consistent record and looks well placed in this line up. IM CHILLED (8) gave a great sight when a narrow second in the Redwood Classic then made an uncharacteristic error at the start when seventh ($2-00fav) in a heat of this series. He is awkwardly drawn but should go close with a foolproof display. LA STELLA (5) chased hard and just couldn’t peg back the leader Brevillian in her heat of the Breeders Crown. She has ability when she puts it altogether and is worth an investment. MATTNABBEY (3) broke when in a good position at Maryborough last time but was runner up in the Redwood Consolation prior and is capable of filling a place.

SOUND EDITION (8) finished hard when an eye-catching third at Shepparton then picked up ground from last at his latest sixth. He is racing well enough to break through for a win but has an awkward draw to overcome. THE FED EXPRESS (4) led out, took a trail and tried hard for second to the handy filly Sambrosie Lass two starts back and is capable of mixing it with this grade. ZITZU (11) led and gave a great sight when on debut then finished unplaced but was far from disgraced at his next three attempts. He has a good turn of speed and is worth an investment. KEEPONSINGING (12) has made mistakes at his first two attempts but is nicely bred being out of the former top mare Yeronga Songbird so he is worth another chance. MELPARK JILLIAN (2) (Rustler Hanover – Golden Forrest) is a half sister to Melpark Major that is making her debut for trainer Alan Tubbs but has been performing moderately at the trials.

JILLIBY HERBIE (9) is an honest 4yo, which was beaten narrowly at Tabcorp Park two starts back then followed with a seventh when taking on a strong field at Ballarat. This looks to be a suitable assignment and he is worth an investment. ZIDANNE (10) won under similar conditions at Bendigo last outing and is a tough type so he is capable of overcoming the handicap of 10m. YOU TWO BONO (3) failed to run on as expected last outing but was beaten narrowly by Let’s Go Ollie in a standing start race on June 06 so he is worth another chance.

This race is a little tougher but he should be competitive. FRANCO SHUTTLE (3) is working back to his best form and should be in a prominent position in the early stages of the event. He had little luck at Yarra Valley on Friday and should go close in this line up. JUSTABRITTMORE (2) has a good turn of speed but can do things wrong on occasions. He is drawn to probably trail the leader and is worth thought on an each way basis. SAINT BULLYWOOD (7) has been racing consistently against similar opposition and is worth a place ticket. SELECTIONS: MAD MACCA (5), Franco Shuttle (3), Justabrittmore (2), Saint Bullywood (7) RATINGS: 3,5/ 2/ 7/ 9,11 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,3,5/ 2,3,5/ 2,3,5,7,9,11 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 10 42048 LOVER OR LOSER NZ (TR) Clare Ferguson (C) Fr 15.00 11 32428 KILFENORA Ellen Tormey (C) Fr 26.00 7 Seelite Windows 4.12 2190m. $5000.

She is drawn to lead again and will take catching. TRIUMPHANT REIGN (1) is rising in class on his latest Globe Derby victory where he finished fast from midfield on the markers. He is drawn to trail the leader here and is a winning chance via the sprint lane. LOMBO ROYAL FLUSH (9) trailed the leader and got up to defeat the handy performer Dual Agent Tabman prior to a close third at Horsham where she obtained the same position. He is likely to end up being three back on the markers here but is a winning chance if luck goes his way. YOU’RE THE CAPTAIN (11) is better than his latest effort suggests and is worth another chance.

He boxed on well after a poor getaway last time and is tough enough to overcome a second row draw. MISTER CASTLETON (8) raced without cover and looked to be a place hope before he broke stride approaching the home bend last outing. He won the Tatlow Stakes in June so he will prove hard to beat if he delivers a foolproof display. AMELIA DARLING (7) dashed home from midfield to win the Maori Legend three starts back and made up good ground at her latest fourth so she is a value chance. SPOTS SUPREME (6) ran his best race since coming from New South Wales when he ran to the line well for second to Rostevarren in his heat effort and is an each way chance if he repeats that performance. SELECTIONS: EARLS GOLD (10), Mister Castleton (8), Amelia Darling (7), Spots Supreme (6) RATINGS: 10/ 7,8/ 6 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 6,7,8,10 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) Ellen Tormey (C) Fr 3.50 John Caldow Fr 26.00 Brett Shipway Fr ★1.80 Greg Sugars Fr 34.00 Todd Matthews Fr 34.00 Nick Youngson Fr 26.00 Ross Payne Fr 26.00 Brian Gath Fr 41.00 Todd Matthews Fr 21.00 Michael Stanley Fr 7.00 John Caldow Fr 5.00 Scott Dyer Fr 13.00 Kerryn Manning Fr ★3.70 Leigh Sutton Fr 13.00 Greg Sugars Fr 15.00 Ross Graham Fr 13.00 Scratched Fr — Brian Gath Fr 10.00 Brian Gath Fr 11.00 Ross Graham Fr 9.00 Neil McCallum Fr 26.00 John Caldow Fr 11.00 Greg Norman Fr 7.00 Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7.

THE EVANGELIST (8) gained the perfect trail throughout when he scored in handy time at Horsham last outing. He is awkwardly drawn for this assignment but should continue to improve with the benefit of racing. STICKEMUP (12) is a New South Wales pacer, which has been placed in both of his Victorian outings, the latest effort behind the unbeaten mare Sambrosie Lass. He is poorly drawn but is racing too well to dismiss. SHAKA SPIRIT (1) has been placed in three of his past four starts against similar grade and is a place chance again.

This race is much harder but he is better drawn and has a promising future. TAGGING (8) has a trailing draw and ran a nice race when she picked up late ground in a heat of the Breeders Crown last time. This race is more suitable and she is worth an investment. I LOOK A LOT (7) is returning from New South Wales where he finished fourth at Harold Park last outing. His efforts prior to that effort were against stronger grade than this event and he looks better placed here. POPEYE VILLAGE (3) gained a nice trail behind the leader but accelerated nicely in the straight when a narrow second when on debut. He should be improved by the experience and this race is no harder. RUFUS DE LOCK (6) (Young Rufus – Fleur De Lock) is making his debut for trainer Debbie Quinlan and finished second (10m) to Another President in a recent Cranbourne trial effort.

HEART OF A MAORI (4) has had a few chances since his latest victory but made up many lengths after making an early mistake when a game fourth last outing. He is a winning chance if he begins safely in this event. LELIS BOY (10) faces a tough handicap of 40m but is a quick beginner from the standing start and won twice when competing against similar grade in June. The former New Zealand trotter NIGEL STARDUST (6) raced without cover throughout on his Australian debut and is a possible improver in this event.

She remains undefeated in two Australian starts and is drawn to go close again. ELITE PROSPECT (9) was heavily supported in a strong race at Moonee Valley when he led and faded into fourth two starts back. He finished solidly at Maryborough last time and is nearing a win against this class. SMART AND MIGHTY (6) is racing in peak form and boxed on well after racing on the outside of the leader and eventual winner Glees Honor at her last outing. She is widely drawn but is one of the leading chances. The fast beginner STARCRAZY (4), TCEESAFLYN (8) and YMBRO COCO (10) all are minor place hopes in the event.

There are several fast beginners drawn on the front line so he will be suited if there is a solid tempo in the early stages of the event. TICKLE THE FALCON (1) copped plenty of pressure when leading and eventually took cover when fifth in fast time at Bendigo last week. He was aggressively driven when he won at Kilmore prior and is a winning chance from the pole position. STATUS SEEKER (4) has been placed seven times since his latest victory and was gunned down by Our Crusherdust at Horsham last time. He is a strong type and should run his usual honest race. SHORTYS STAR (5) broke stride when looming up to win on the home turn, recovered to be beaten narrowly so he should have won easily at Mildura last time.

She wasn’t far away from the winner when fourth last time and looks to be a strong each way chance here. HEEZA TOP DOG (8) is racing well enough to be successful having found the line strongly at his two runs back from a spell but he is very awkwardly drawn on the inside of the second line. SOLICIT (9) finished well when second to the handy former New Zealand pacer Tellthebanker two starts back and is worth thought on an each way basis. GO MILO (7) is awkwardly drawn but ran to the line strongly to win two starts back then had little luck from the standing start last time.

POCKET LEGEND (3) went to the line jogging with no clear run when seventh at Yarra Valley last outing and is racing better than his form reads. WAINGARO GRANDVIEW (5) led and seemingly had his chance to win when second to Givitaname at Horsham but his form overall has been strong and he is worth another chance. JUST WAL (10) has resumed from a spell in tremendous form and finished well out wide on the track when second to Flying Class (used the sprint lane) last time. He is awkwardly drawn but is worth thought on an each way basis.

This looks to be a suitable assignment and he should go well. VILLAGEBURNER (11) followed a good Bacchus Marsh trial effort with a second at Charlton where he hit the lead on the home turn and couldn’t withstand the challenge of Jaxascoundrel in the straight. He is terribly drawn but should be running home strongly in the latter stages. MASTER VISION (2) has had several chances to win a race recently but has been placed in seven of his eight starts and should be prominent throughout from his good draw. BEACHUWIN (9) has been placed in two of his past three starts against similar opposition.
