She led when second to the smart type The Way Holme prior and should run a forward race here. THREE CARD BRAG (6) led throughout to win comfortably at Ballarat last outing and boxed on bravely for second at Charlton prior. This race is no harder and she is one of the leading chances again. BLITZEM LASS (5) finished well when fourth to Sierra Tango last outing and is maintaining a consistent form line against similar grade. She has had 12 attempts since her latest victory but she should be competitive against this line up. ALPHA BABE (8) will be suited by a trailing draw and is capable of running into a place. SELECTIONS: PERFECT PABLO (4), Three Card Brag (6), Blitzem Lass (5), Alpha Babe (8) RATINGS: 4,6/ 5/ 1? ,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,6/ 4,5,6/ 1,4,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 166%) 2 Geelong Events 2YO 1.52 2100m. $5000. 2yo 2T0 Or Better RBD Stand 1 2 3 HEZARAMA 26 SASCAT 4 s6025 MILLWOOD TRIX NZ 5 6 TITILLATE 7 79452 GIRL AT WORK Second Line 8 51453 MILITARY PRECISION 9 6244 FLAMBUANT 10 6s538 JINGLING SILVER 11 37921 BACKAS COBBER 677 REGAL EQUATION (Em1) WHISPERING ALM Jodi Quinlan Fr 13.00 Glenn Conroy Fr 34.00 Ken Tippet Fr 21.00 Kerryn Manning Fr 6.00 Scratched Fr — David Murphy Fr 16.00 Daryl Douglas Fr 9.00 Jaime Madruga Fr 6.00 Chris Lang Jr (C) Fr 6.00 Paul Davies Fr 13.00 Kylie Sugars 30 ★2.50 Craig’s call: BACKAS COBBER (11) faces a tough task from the handicap of 30m but defeated the New Zealander Tuhimata Glass after finding the lead at Ballarat last time and is clearly the class runner of the field. MILITARY PRECISION (8) won in a troublesome race at Ballarat on July 12 and picked up ground for third to BACKAS COBBER (11) last time so he is worth an investment. REGAL EQUATION (3) has been unplaced in all of his three starts but has made a mistake on each occasion and he does possess a lot of ability. GIRL AT WORK (7) put in a career best performance when she was runner up behind Mister Castleton in a repechage of the Breeders Crown last outing and will a run a good race again if she produces a foolproof display.

He drops back to a second row draw but was very impressive last time. ENTHRAL (8) is a talented pacer, which remains undefeated from two starts. He was well driven to switch back to the inside on the home corner last week and will prove very hard to beat if he gains some luck from his awkward draw. BULLDOZER (2) will appreciate a big drop in class on his two unplaced efforts in the Breeders Crown Series. He is a handy beginner and is drawn to go close over the sprint distance. HEI EGYPTIAN REINE (6) gained a nice trail throughout but extended well in the latter stages to beat Antsinyapants at Stawell. This race is harder but he should continue to improve with the benefit of racing and is not without a chance.

He has won 8 of his 19 starts and ambled around to win a recent Bacchus Marsh trial so he should prove hard to beat here. THE PRESTIGE (3) was runner up behind You Two Bono under similar conditions at Maryborough and is drawn to run a good race again. ZIDANNE (11) is a tough type, which won from behind the tapes at Bendigo prior to a sixth at Maryborough. He would be better suited being drawn off the front line but is racing too well to dismiss. ELITE PROSPECT (5) ran into a smart pacer in Pacific Playgirl last time and should be finishing well against this line up.

He is the likely leader of this event and should take catching. JAZZEE VALENTINE (11) made up late ground when third at Ballarat last outing and got up to beat BIGBANG NITRO (4) at Terang prior so she is the logical danger again. DANCE WITH ARMBRO (1) isn’t a brilliant beginner from the mobile and is likely to be headed off at the start but he is a tough type and is likely to make his presence felt. MOON SPIRIT (5) will strip fitter for her first up narrow Cranbourne victory and is capable of taking the next step forward.

T4 Or Better Trotters RBD Stand Craig’s call: SHIRAZ CABERNET (10) sprinted nicely in the home straight when a comfortable winner over Mr Whizzer last outing. He has built up a great record this season and will prove hard to beat again. TAISON (9) possesses a good turn of speed and has built up a good record since coming from New Zealand. He got shuffled back on the markers in a similar race last time and is worth following. MOTU SHEER DELIGHT (2) is resuming since November but is a good standing start beginner and was placed behind Life On The Line in a recent Cranbourne trial effort. DRAMA RAMA (3) is a trotter from New South Wales that has won 11 of her 20 starts so she must be respected.

This race is easier and he gets his chance to break through for a win. MACTERRA BOY (10) is rising in class on his past two victories but recorded a slick 1.55.4 mile rate last outing and has never raced better. SHOW ME AMBER (12) won three races in succession including a metropolitan event at Tabcorp Park prior to a ninth to Tranquil Odyssey where she endured a tough run. She would be better suited to being drawn on the front line but looks suited against this class. WAINGARO GRANDVIEW (11) has been placed in all of his eight starts since resuming from a spell and is very versatile so he is worth consideration. SELECTIONS: LITTLE VANCE LOT (4), Show Me Amber (12), Macterra Boy (10), Waingaro Grandview (11) RATINGS: 4/ 10,11,12/ 8,9 SUGGESTED BET: LITTLE VANCE LOT (4) to win 11 31123 WAINGARO GRANDVIEW NZ 12 s1119 SHOW ME AMBER 10 47311 MACTERRA BOY Greg Sugars Fr 7.00 Sam Judd (C,cl) Fr 15.00 Amy Tubbs Fr ★2.80 Lance Justice Fr 8.00 David Murphy Fr 5.00 8 GT Magazine 3YO 5.32 2100m. $5000. 3yo 3A0 To 3A1 PBD Mobile Second Line 8 25364 GOOD LIVING 9 06458 CAMIVELL ROCK 10 s2540 TIRUS 5 0s268 OMBRE OPERATEUR 6 2126s THATS ALL FUDGE 7 23346 JILLIBY BARTEL 4 25473 ZITZU Craig’s call: THAT’S ALL FUDGE (6) is a smart colt, which is resuming since a sixth behind Crown Bromac in a heat of the Victoria Derby. He is widely drawn but was placed in a strong standing start trial at Tabcorp Park trial recently and should prove hard to beat against this line up. THE SYSTEM ACE (11) broke at the start and flashed through along the markers for an eyecatching fourth to Three Card Brag last outing. He sprinted quickly from midfield to win on his debut and has the ability to figure in the finish. ZITZU (4) possesses good gate speed and finished quickly for a game third at Maryborough last outing. He is a promising maiden and is drawn to receive every chance. JILLIBY BARTEL (7) was placed four starts in succession prior to unplaced efforts in the Breeders Crown series. He will find this race much easier and is worth thought despite a wide draw.

He led on that occasion and drops to a second row draw now but will still prove hard to beat. GOORNONG SPIRIT (1) will appreciate her best draw for some time and worked home okay when beaten narrowly by HOUSE OF KHAN (9) in her heat performance. TIBUR FINALE (11) over-raced badly on the markers and did well to finish off into second position last time albeit being beaten 15m. He is awkwardly drawn but could run into a place again. JOANSREVENGE (6) had no luck in her heat effort when she was caught wide and had to drop out to last. She is poorly drawn but went well enough last time to suggest she is a value chance. SELECTIONS: KENSINGTON GARDENS (8), Goornong Spirit (1), Tibur Finale (11), Joansrevenge (6) RATINGS: 8/ 1/ 6,9,11/ 5 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,8/ 1,6,8,9,11/ 1,5,6,8,9,11 (Cost $20, which gives 62.50%) 2 Hicks Stables Trot 6.57 2190m. $5000.

NIGEL STARDUST (8) will be fitter for his two efforts since coming from New Zealand and did some work in the middle stages when fourth to The Red Team at Cranbourne. This looks to be a suitable assignment and he should run a forward race. IS SHE NOBLE (10) disappointed at Yarra Valley but drove home along the sprint lane to defeat Dover Downs at Maryborough three starts back and rates as an each way chance here. CATCHYA MUSCLE (4) is resuming since May but has been placed in three recent trial efforts and is making her debut for trainer Darren Rowney. She showed some ability last preparation being placed on two occasions and is a minor place hope again.

WIZARD OF SPEED (6) settled midfield and was suited by an even tempo being set throughout when he won with something in hand at Shepparton last outing. The wide draw is a disadvantage but he looms as the main danger to SAMBROSIE LASS (1). ILLAWONG LIPSTICK (2) and SALJET (4) both are minor place hopes from their good draw on the front line. GYRO SPIRIT (8) has been aided by the withdrawal of Scatter and is not drawn to trail the likely leader and favourite SAMBROSIE LASS (1).

FRISKY RISKY RITA (7) was successful in that first up effort but PREDICT (3) finished fast and is capable of turning the tables. CROCODILE TEARS (9) followed a second behind Fayes My Girl with a placed effort in a heat of the Breeders Crown. She missed out in a repechage of that series last time but looks better placed against this class. BEBOP (10) was beaten narrowly when on debut then dashed home in a fast final quarter of 28.3 seconds to beat Peaces Of You last time.

He followed a second in the Tontine Final with efforts behind Lady Octavia and Tsunami Lombo (both won again since) so he gets his chance to break through for a win. ISLAND BRAVE (7) is a quality colt with a consistent record. He will appreciate a big drop in class on his latest eleventh in a heat of the Breeders Crown and will take beating against this line up. REGAL RAINBOW (1) is better drawn than her two efforts since coming from New South Wales and is a genuine place hope. ALBERT AUSTIN (2) has been racing consistently having been placed in four of his past five starts against similar opposition so he is worth thought on an each way basis.

He should have improved by the experience of that outing and will prove hard to beat here. CULLEN HANOVER (12) is a former New Zealand pacer for trainer Vince Vallelonga. He won at Addington (as favourite) last outing and is worth thought first up. HIT FOR SIX (5) dashed to the early lead and ran along at a even tempo when fourth to ROLLIN THUNDER (11) last outing. He will be suited by the sprint distance and should be in front for a long way. BUNDY BABE (3) led throughout to win against easier opposition two starts back then was run down on the post last time. She is nicely drawn and has claims.

He is racing in peak form and possesses a powerful finishing burst so he should take beating. STRIDENT (8) is a very promising pacer with four wins and a second from just five starts. He is awkwardly drawn over the short trip but is a winning chance with the right luck in running. GET THE MONET (4) finished a close second to the open class pacer Cincinnati Kid in a recent Shepparton trial effort and is capable of giving a big sight first up. ISLAND STORM (2) is a fast beginner from the mobile and seems to race best over the short trip. He will appreciate his first front line draw for some time and should give a bold showing.

If the emergency VENUS WILLIAMS (1) gains a start, she will prove hard to beat as she had no clear run on her Australian debut. OVERPASSING (7) is widely drawn but possesses a good turn of speed and is an each way chance despite a wide draw. SKI SKIPPER (2) was placed against similar opposition at Echuca three starts back and is drawn to run a good race again. SNAPPY TACTICS (6) has had 26 attempts since her latest victory at Echuca in May 2008 but will be fitter for her first up effort from behind the tapes at Maryborough and is a value hope.
