She has ability when right and strikes a weak race first up. CLASSIC SNIP (11) held his own on the pegs for fifth to In Bar Go at Cranbourne nine days ago and with that run under his belt he can be dangerous in this. COPPER REEF (3) was a touch disappointing last start at Bendigo after having a soft run but that was his first since resuming so he may be sharper tonight. TWOANTUPPENCE (10), KEPT AT BRUSHGROVE (8) and MOSQUITO MAVERICK (12) all have a hope in a tricky event. SELECTIONS: STAR OF JORDAINE (9), Classic Snip (11), Copper Reef (3), Twoantuppence (10) RATINGS: 9/ 11/ 3/ 10/ 8/ 12 SUGGESTED BET: STAR OF JORDAINE (9) each way 2 Basic Bookkeeping 7.20 2100m. $2000. 3yo 3R0 To 3R1 PBD Mobile 1 3 CRUISIN FELLA John Caldow Fr 5.00 2 744s TIANA BROMAC Graeme Lang Fr 13.00 3 60s UNSINKABLE BOXER Scratched Fr --- 4 0 HANDSUPGEOFFREY Craig Demmler Fr 41.00 5 OUR MATTJESTY Gavin Lang Fr 9.00 6 32487 STORMY STROKES Neil McCallum Fr 15.00 7 4s2 OUR ULTIMATE LILY NZ Scott Dyer Fr 2.70 Second Line 8 PERSONAL SERVICE Lee Butcher Fr 21.00 9 3235s BLACK PONTIAC Amy Tubbs Fr ★2.50 10 BARACK Brian Shelley Fr 34.00 Assessment: BLACK PONTIAC (9) resumes tonight off the back of an easy trial win here last week. He mixed it with some of our better juveniles last season and this looks a good race for him. CRUISIN FELLA (1) did a super job on debut to finish third to Smooth Courage from a tricky draw. He gets the ace and the stable are on fire. OUR ULTIMATE LILY (7) just failed to reel in Loving Life Lombo after having the gun run behind the leader first up from New Zealand at Shepparton a week back. She draws the car park but with natural improvement she ll be competitive. OUR MATTJESTY (5) (Royal Mattjesty -- Late Tiffany) is a first starter for Graeme Lang. This filly was runner up in a Tabcorp Park trial in late November to the smart Definite Girl so she bears watching. TIANA BROMAC (2) is first up but has trialled well in preparation for this so keep an eye on betting. The remaining debutantes are PERSONAL SERVICE (8) (Panorama -- No Knickers) for Gary Bailey and BARACK (10) (Presidential Ball -- Moroni) for John Shelley. They both have been working out only fairly.

She normally begins well and is the testing material. GIRL AT WORK (6) battled on well for second in that same race mentioned above after having a cosy run on the pegs. She will be ready to show her best third up tonight. The Peter Goudie pair of WEARY POCKETS (5) and ANDANDMAN (8) both have ability but their manners let them down. They will be a force if they trot all the way. BACKINA LIFETIME (7) is the next best. First starter is MISS STEARLING (4) (Earl -- Liquid Asset) for John Shelley. This well-bred filly was well beaten in a Maryborough trial almost a year ago, which is a query. A market watch is advised with her though.

He draws well, meets beatable opposition and should go close. RELAY STATION (1) (River Khan -- Yam Salad) is on debut for Merv Williamson. This mare won a Kilmore trial in slow time late last month and from the pole she can show up. BUFFALO MAGIC (7) is resuming from a lengthy spell tonight but he has been trialling quite well recently. He draws the extreme alley but his last start fourth to Brushgrovemachbest at Menangle reads well for a race like this. MANNY TIAVON (3) looms as the blow out.

He has had three runs back from a break the latest a luckless second to Strangeasitsounds at Cranbourne. He ll push forward, race handy and is beautifully placed with the claim for Moran. Multiples look the go here with TRIPLE DRAW (2), HARBHAJAN (1), SIERRA TANGO (10) and IT HAPPENS A LOT (4) the only place chances.

She draws well and will be hard to beat. ONE FELLAS FANCY (6) was just collared late when third to Vapar Raine (won again since) at Terang two back then got into trouble here last time. She is a speedy beginner and may be able to get the lead. GRIMLOR CITY (8) (Elsu -- Deductible) is a first starter with Tim Bolitho. He was fourth in a trial here last week to Black Pontiac and with some fortune from the tricky draw he can run a race on debut. HARMONY PRINCE (3) and KICKITTOBUDDY (4) are the next best.

He obviously has his share of problems but he did trial well at Maryborough eight days ago and draws to advantage. SUMMER ACE (6) savaged the line first up from a break at Maryborough 11 days ago to win running away. He draws wide but he ll be even sharper for this tonight. GO MILO (4) held his own for fourth to Sandler at Tabcorp Park last start in fast time and he has an each way chance. GREAT SOUTHERN LAD (8), TACTICAL JOURNEYS (5), REAL ZAMBIDIS (1), GEMMA BEAR (11) and SUDDEN FURY (2) are must includes for your multiples.

He draws to lead and will be a tough nut to crack. TRANSFORMATION (4) was all over the shop but still managed to get the cash at Charlton first up just under a month ago. This is no harder and he should go well. STORMY SOUND (1) and JAZ EQUITY (6) are the key ones for trifectas and first fours.

He parked out and held on ok for fourth behind Algranco Alive at Tabcorp Park two back then he started a hot favourite at Kilmore in a stand but was pulled up and ordered to trial. He won a workout here just over three months ago and was sent to the paddock. He meets an ordinary bunch here and should win. DEEJAYELL (7), REGAL BALL (6) and LUCE SOUND (5) are the main ones for your exotics. First starter is CAPTAIN SIR (1) (Chill Factor -- Dreamboat) for Tim Mannix.

KEYSTONE QUEST (13) is a highly talented mare resuming today. She made the Australasian Breeders Crown Final last season finishing down the track behind the might Skyvalley. She trialled well here eight days ago and will be a major player. PUERTO BONUS (12) is also blessed with her share of ability. She cruised in first up at Shepparton and will have the fitness improvement factor. DROP US A LINE (7) hasn t missed a place in all seven starts this season and is a credit to Glenn Conroy. She will be in front of her main rivals in the run. CHERRY SWEET (8) has been freshened up since a dominant Cranbourne win back in November last year. She will be dangerous with her impeccable manners. SUNDONSMAGIC (10) is the next best.

She did mix it with some handy ones last season and this looks a suitable assignment for her second up. BARNEYS INVASION (4) bumped into the smart Hei Gift here 11 days ago and his effort to finish seventh was good considering he was first up. His win at Kilmore prior gives him a hope in this. AMAZON RIVER (7) has a screw loose upstairs as indicated by his inglorious performances his past three. If he puts his mind on the job he ll give this an almighty shake. KELLYS NIPPA (6) will appreciate this grade while COST ME A QUID (2), ENOTHEQUE (5), SPEEDY ATOM (8) and OLLIE NOVA (11) can win without surprising.

He obviously didn t appreciate the quick back up and he should go close in this wide draw and all. DOUGIE RAY (7) is smart and has a cracking record. He worked hard when second to Fernleigh Raider at Terang last time and with a slice of luck from the extreme alley he ll be in the finish. KING OF BLING (1) had been ordinary this campaign until a close up fifth at Yarra Valley last start behind Clear The Floor in blistering time. He has the speed to lead and over the sprint trip he ll be hard to roll. MAD MACCA (8) is an on-pace type who will get a soft run off the speed from the draw. He isn t entirely suited to sit-sprint but he still has an each way chance along with RUPENJOHN (5) who is second up for Larry Eastman and did trial stylishly here last month.

He has since trialled well at Kilmore and will look the winner at some stage in the straight. BULLY MURPHY (3) is a speedy type who will be having a crack at the lead. He probably goes best sit-sprint so he may elect to take a sit and use the passing lane. KENTUCKY JASPER (11) is absolutely flying. He was most impressive at Stawell 19 days ago and will be a major player in this despite drawing the car park. They look the main three with rough hopes to KREMLIN (1) and ITS GAME ON (9).

He has the extreme barrier today but he has a touch of class about him. LADY TOTTINGTON (5) recorded super numbers at Bendigo two back then she led again at Lords Raceway but felt the pinch the last 100m to finish third to the smart Summanus. She looks the leader again but the step up in distance will test her. ROJEN DREAM (9) was luckless as favourite first up at Bendigo last week and with a clear crack at them today he ll be dangerous. SARUM KNIGHT (6) has pathetic form on paper but he has been working out well at Kilmore and a forward showing is expected from him. HARRYS CHAMP (2), ART AND RHYTHM (8), FERGUS MACCOOL (10) and RAW DIESEL (11) are all place hopes. The first starter is SPINALONG (7) (Our Sir Vancelot - -Precious Franco) for Chris Hildebrandt.

He was a gallant third to Tsunami Sloy in the MHRC Cup two back then he did a super job to finish fifth behind Enthral in the Vic Sires Classic from a horror draw. He has speed drawn inside him but will push forward and give these a touch up. ALGRANCO ALIVE (2) has the speed to lead early then he may take a sit on this hot favourite.
