He is undefeated at Harold Park and should take beating again, despite being a C2 assessed pacer taking on the C2-C5 grade. The Victorian pacer PRINCE LOCHIE (3) didn t have much luck when fifth to Our Cullen in a strong race at Maryborough last outing and is drawn to be prominent throughout. JUKEBOX MUSIC (8) is rising in class on his latest victories at Menangle but has a good turn of speed and has the very good record of six wins from eight starts. BLACK STATURE (6) also boasts a good strike rate and possesses early pace. He was defeated by the handy sprinter Vegas Bound at Menangle last time and is a winning chance if he gains the right run in front. SELECTIONS: DEADSETLUCKY (9), Prince Lochie (3), Jukebox Music (8), Black Stature (6) SUGGESTED BET: DEADSETLUCKY (9) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 3,6,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 2 Pace 7.30 2160m. $14000.

He is not usually known as a tough staying type but he worked hard when a game third last week, which indicates he is racing in the peak of form. SLICK BROMAC (3) was slowly away from the outside of the second line, became held up for a run in the latter stages and had no luck whatsoever when eighth last week. His prior efforts were terrific and he is capable of being competitive even if he is forced to race on the outside of the leader throughout. OWNEROPERATOR (8) is drawn to trail the likely leader and should end up receiving every chance. He gained an inside run at the 500m and dashed well clear before being gunned down on the line in the Wagga Cup on Friday so he is a value hope. MIAMI ROCKET (5) was a strong winner at Harold Park three starts back and met strong opposition at his past two attempts so he rates as an each way chance. SELECTIONS: ACE KRIDEN (1), Slick Bromac (3), Owneroperator (8), Miami Rocket (5) SUGGESTED BET: ACE KRIDEN (1) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,3/ 1,3,5,8/ 1,3,4,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 3 Pace 8.00 2160m. $14000.

She worked hard and just outstayed Shellies Pride last week but she is more effective when coming from off the pace so she is a winning chance again. SURFING STAR (6) has been freshened since a second to Runaway Fire at Penrith where she trailed the leader and made up ground on that smart pacer in the latter stages. She is an honest mare and is not without a chance. CAMSPLACE MOCKA (9) trailed the leader and finished second to the in-form pacer Be Artful prior to an eighth at Tabcorp Park (Melton) where he had little luck in a slick mile rate of 1.55.7. He has a trailing draw and is a value chance. TRUSTY COURAGE (7) won the Carousel when he was last in work but he was disappointing first up. He is better than that effort suggests and is worth another chance. SELECTIONS: SO DEEP (8), Surfing Star (6), Camsplace Mocka (9), Trusty Courage (7) SUGGESTED BET: SO DEEP (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 6,8/6,7,8,9/ 1,2,6,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 50%) 4 Pace 8.30 2160m. $16000.

His previous effort was in the Kilmore Cup so this race is a massive drop in class for him and he is expected to go close. JACKSON GRANT (2) is an extremely tough pacer, which moved up without cover and was driven with plenty of aggression when a brave second to Lombo Pocket Watch last week. He lacks early dash but will give a bold showing in this line up. GOTASHOTAWAY (5) has worked back to his best form over the past two weeks having finished second behind Saucy Legend prior to winning in fast time on Friday night. This race is a little tougher but he should go well. BALLBARBOY (4) should be fitter after his two runs back from a spell and is capable of mixing it with this grade so an improved effort would not surprise. SELECTIONS: BOLD CRUISER (8), Jackson Grant (2), Gotashotaway (5), Ballbarboy (4) SUGGESTED BET: BOLD CRUISER (8) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,5,8/ 2,5,8/ 2,3,4,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 5 Pace 9.00 1760m. $14000.

She pushed forward to lead and held off her rivals to win the Mares Championship at Tabcorp Park (Melton) seven days ago so she should take beating in this small field of six runners. GAME SAFIN (5) finished solidly but not as fast as MISS LAURA JANE (6) two starts back then got up to win last time. She is racing very consistently and looks to be the main danger to the Victorian mare this evening. STAR OF MIA (4) tried hard but couldn t peg back Maudie in a fast mile rate of 1.56.3 last week. She has been placed in 9 of her ten starts and should run her usual honest race here. KIEWA VALLEY (3) can sprint to the line strongly with the right trail forward and OUR MATTYS GIRL (1) is rising in class on her past three victories at Newcastle. SELECTIONS: MISS LAURA JANE (6), Game Safin (5), Star Of Mia (4), Kiewa Valley (3) SUGGESTED BET: MISS LAURA JANE (6) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi First Four 6/ 4,5/ 3,4,5/ field (Cost $20, which gives 166%) 6 Pace 9.30 2160m. $14000.

This race is no harder and he is the horse to beat again. KID COURAGEOUS (8) endured a tough run in a fast mile rate of 1.56.3 when a brave third last week. He has been placed in all of his eight starts for the season and should go well despite the awkward draw. ARTIFACTOR (9) worked out of the gate, gained a one out and one back trail and finished solidly to win last week. He was held up for a run at a vital stage at Menangle prior and should be finishing strongly again here. OUR WINSOME HANOVER (2) didn t have much luck in securing a clear passage and probably should have won when he finished a close second last outing. He is nicely drawn and is a value chance. SLIPPERY NEMO (1) is perfectly drawn and is worth thought in multiple combinations. SELECTIONS: AT LARGE (6), Kid Courageous (8), Artifactor (9), Our Winsome Hanover (2) SUGGESTED BET: AT LARGE (6) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 6,8/ 1,2,6,8,9/ 1,2,5,6,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 7 3YO Pace 10.00 2160m. $8000. 3yo 3C0 Or Better PBD Mobile 1 47556 LITTLE GOZZO S Bigeni Fr 101.00 2 41s11 IM A HAPPY GIRL D A Kennedy Fr ★1.80 3 496s6 VINTAGE DROP G S Brown Fr 101.00 4 41215 JONTY BOY D J Grant Fr 15.00 5 4 JASPERS DANCER J N Douglass (C) Fr 26.00 6 112 ELECTRIC WARRIOR NZ J R Ponsonby Fr 7.00 7 s1335 JOCK WALLACE M K Sullivan (C) Fr 17.00 Second Line 8 121s1 JOHNNYS BOYS A S Turnbull Fr 2.80 Craig s call: JONNYS BOYS (8) has had four wins and two seconds from six starts and led throughout to beat easier opposition at Penrith when he was resuming from a break. He is very promising and is capable of taking the step up in class. IM A HAPPY GIRL (2) is shooting for four straight victories and blitzed her rivals at Wagga last time. This race is harder but she possesses early pace and she should give a bold showing. ELECTRIC WARRIOR (6) won on his Australian debut at Menangle then disappointed after leading at Newcastle on Saturday night. He is widely drawn but this race is no harder and he is worth another chance. JASPERS DANCER (5) had no luck behind JONNYS BOYS (8) on his debut and could run into a place. Other place hopes include JONTY BOY (4) and JOCK WALLACE (7). SELECTIONS: JONNYS BOYS (8), Im A Happy Girl (2), Electric Warrior (6), Jaspers Dancer (5) SUGGESTED BET: JONNYS BOYS (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,8/ 2,5,6,8/ 2,4,5,6,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 8 Trotters Hcp 10.30 2565m. $8000.

He is a smart trotter and gets his chance to post his maiden Australian victory. OUR MACARTHUR PARK (6) galloped at the start and lost his chance when unplaced last week. He led and defeated the smart trotter In Pursuit prior so he is worth another chance. THE WINDSURFER (8) faces a tough handicap of 30m but will be suited by a small field of eight runners and possesses a powerful finishing burst. SELECTIONS: KING GALLEON (4), Our Macarthur Park (6), The Windsurfer (8), Rayleigh s Crown (5) SUGGESTED BET: KING GALLEON (4) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 4/ 4,6,8/ 1,4,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 111%) Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 1 Neatline Homes 1.15 2190m. $5000.

He won t strike an easier race than this and despite the extreme alley he should go very close. SHES LETHAL (6) wasn t a bad effort for fifth behind Artiology at Cobram last time and with the lack of speed drawn inside her she may be able to scoot across and take up the running. She hasn t placed in 22 attempts though. BROTHER FRANCIS (8) is resuming from a short break but his form last time in was against better than these so he must be given a chance here. They look the main three hopes with all remaining runners having place claims. SELECTIONS: POPPYS PRIDE (7), Shes Lethal (6), Brother Francis (8), Sanction Elect (1) RATINGS: 7/ 6,8/ 1,2,3,5 SUGGESTED BET: POPPYS PRIDE (7) to win 2 Hygain Vicbred 1.50 2190m. $5000.

He was an upset winner here two back via the sprint lane and he has trialled well for his racetrack return. FLIGHT TO MIKINOS (7) has been a bit wayward in the score up his past two, which is out of character for him. He was an impressive Tabcorp Park winner three back and although drawn the car park he might have the speed to lead and be hard to run down. HEZABIT RUSTY (3) has hit the line hard his past two at Cobram and he has an each way chance in this along with MASAI (1). The first starters are VILLAGE SPY (2) (Village Jasper -- Spy Catcher) for Mark Hayes who has been trialling nicely on this circuit and KINGUSSIE (9) (Christian Cullen -- Regal Shield) for Greg Lewis was placed in a recent Kyabram trial. They can both show up on debut with CONFETTI (7) and ROSE EXPRESS (8) must includes in your multiples.

TOTALLY CHEEKY (12) won here at bolters odds a few months ago and he hadn t done much since until he ran fourth at Cobram five days ago behind the flying Rojen Cruz. He will have to be driven cold from the barrier but with a genuine tempo he might be able to duck and weave his way to victory. ZEN OVER AGAIN (6) just battled last time at Cobram in what was just a sprint home, which doesn t suit him. He ll push forward, race on the pace and give you a sight. FALOSHEA (10) was going to be in the finish for sure before he broke here last time and with better manners he can make his presence felt in this. ANNOYER (9) was placed at Cobram two back and he has a nice trailing draw today so he goes into the mix along with DESPERATE BELIEVER (2), BLACKTIE TOFF (3) and THATS GOLD (4).

He ll tighten up nicely from the run and this looks a good race for him bad alley and all. SOLAR OPERATIVE (1) has ordinary form on paper but he did trial stylishly at Bendigo five days ago and from the pole he rates highly. GOLD CAFE (2) battled on well for fifth behind Sly Fantasy last time after enduring a tough run in the breeze. He is nearing a win at this level and he has the draw to be dangerous with each way hopes going to BUZZ LIGHTNIN (8), OUR SORENSTAM (9), VENUS WILLIAMS (4) and STEADY ARDEN (12).

He just needs to kick up and hold a forward spot to go one better today. COMMANDER CULLEN (4) has been racing in strong company at Tabcorp Park of late. He may have the speed to lead these and over the sprint trip he ll be hard to catch. ROLLIN THUNDER (5) is a consistent type who chased home the air born Rojen Cruz at Cobram last time and he gets in well with the claim for the in-form David Moran. BILLY WALTON (8) might be the best roughie with the likelihood of him getting a soft run on the pegs.

She enjoyed a good run off the speed and just failed to beat the in-form Somoya at Charlton last time. She has a nice trailing draw today and she ll give this an almighty shake with the right run into the race. AZUMAH MAZASHA (8) is the best horse in the race but he has the awkward barrier. He resumes today and hasn t been produced at the trials but his record is above reproach. He just needs a slice of luck and he ll be in the finish. DEE EM DIVA (5) has been working up to a win. She draws a touch wide but she ll more than likely push forward and race handy. FELLA FROM LOCKSLEY (3) looks the other winning hope going on his last start win at Kilmore via the passing lane.

Brian Gath takes the drive once more and he might just have too much high speed for them at the finish. MORE SASSI LOMBO (2) was outstanding first up here then she was never comfortable at Maryborough. She gets her best draw for ages and she should be able to work to the lead and be mighty hard to roll.

He can be a bit hit and miss at the start but with a safe getaway he ll be more than competitive in this. DEFEND ME NOT (5) is only lightly raced but he is starting to put it all together. He has been beginning well of late and he may be able to work to the lead today. PRETTYLILANGELEYES (13) was back to her old tricks here last time but her previous two victories give her an undeniable chance in this. 'Dasher just needs to get her to step.
