He has some traffic to negotiate but he rates highly. IN BAR GO (8) went back to back at Geelong and Cranbourne before running fourth to Imamusclesyankee in the same race STAR WAGON (11) contested here. He is in good touch and has upset claims. ITS LIGHTSCAMERACTION (5), NIGEL STARDUST (6), OURLITTLELIL (1), LETS ENJOY (9), RYANS COMANDO (4), RAKOS (3) and ALBA RAMA (10) can be thrown into your trifectas and first fours.

This guy won a Tabcorp Park trial in 2:05.7 nine days ago running his last half in 60.1. He meets moderate opposition, draws to advantage and should win. His only danger will be from the widely drawn THIS WAY UP (7). He worked home all right for fourth to Wiley Jasper at Cranbourne first up then he had his chance in front for second to the smart filly Bevstuanmarylu at Echuca on New Years Day. The alley is an issue but Dasher will drive him well. AMBERS CHOICE (2) will find this easier then her first up eighth here to Mands Gearl in fast time. She may be able to cross to the pegs first and then has options available to her. DENOVER BROMAC (5) is first up from New Zealand for Ashleigh Herbertson.

OUR FALCONS A TACT (6) held on well for second to Master Joy at Tabcorp Park two back then he led up and just weakened the last 50m to wind up third to Classic Falcon at Geelong. He drops back to the sprint trip, has the speed to lead and will go close. STRONGBOW LOMBO (10) was disappointing at Albury when fourth as a hot favourite after leading two runs ago then he had his chance for fourth to Christian Shadow at Maryborough where they ran a blistering final half. He will have to do some work but he is a clear second pick. BARNIES LITTLEGLEE (5), MOOSE JAW (7), WHATA HABIT (9), TOPWESTERN (8) and RUN SCOTTY RUN (4) are the key ones for trifecta players.

VILLAGEM (7) was one of our best three year-olds from last season, which saw him win at Group 1 level taking out the Vicbred. He made the Final of the Australasian Breeders Crown but finished down the track to Tintin In America prior to going for a spell. He resumed with an impressive Tabcorp Park victory 12 days ago and although he draws poorly he will be even sharper tonight. HOLLYWOOD BROMAC (5) is low flying. He has won his last five in emphatic fashion the latest at Tabcorp Park where he ripped home in 27.2. He will be in front once more and if left alone he will be near impossible to run down. They look a stand out quinella with HARRY WALTON (6), NORTHERN DANJARO (2) and LITTLE VANCE LOT (4) look the only ones capable of running third.

He draws the ace, should be in front and hard to run down. HEZ ELL GRINGO (4) (Elsu -- Contessa Vance) makes his debut for Emma Stewart. He was runner up in a Maryborough trial 10 days ago in slow time but he is in an astute camp and a watch on betting is advised. MY POOH BEAR (3) was a bit green first up at Cranbourne when fifth to Modern Warrior but he has since trialled well at Tabcorp Park and from the good draw he looks the improver. THIRTYSIXTOES (8) draws to get a soft run on the pegs and he looms as the blow out material. The other first starter LETHAL ROYALE (5) (Aces N Sevens -- Low And Lethal) who was fifth in a recent trial on this track, can be thrown into your exotics. SELECTIONS: ULTIMATE ESCAPE (1), Hez Ell Gringo (4), My Pooh Bear (3), Thirtysixtoes (8) RATINGS: 1/4/3/8/7/2/12/9/5 SUGGESTED BET: ULTIMATE ESCAPE (1) to win 6 Kilmore Trackside 9.00 2180m. $5000. 3yo 3T0 To 3T2 Trotters PBD Mobile 1 9324s LOUEY LOUEY LOUEY Kate Gath Fr 3.70 2 2s PEPPERELL MAGIC Daryl Woolcock Fr 16.00 3 63s65 AMELIA DARLING Damian Wilson Fr 16.00 4 539s7 MILITARY PRECISION Jaime Madruga Fr 21.00 5 3s753 GIOIOSA IONICA Nick Youngson Fr 21.00 6 s1s54 IMAGUNNADOGOOD Joe Attard Fr 16.00 7 s9121 EARLS GOLD Brett Shipway Fr ★3.00 Second Line 8 6s39 BACKINA LIFETIME Chris Alford Fr 16.00 9 s4222 GIRL AT WORK Paul Grech Fr 13.00 10 9211s BACKAS COBBER Kylie Sugars Fr 6.00 11 339s3 ENJOY A MALABU Todd Matthews Fr 9.00 Assessment: LOUEY LOUEY LOUEY (1) contested all the features last season and prior to going for a break he ran fourth to Tuhimata Glass in the Australasian Breeders Crown Final at Tabcorp Park back in August. He hasn't been to the trials but Andy will have him ready to go and he should be able to hold the lead. BACKAS COBBER (10) had a cracking freshman season too winning four of 14 including his past two in succession. He can be a bit risky at the start but he'll be dangerous with a safe getaway. EARLS GOLD (7) bolted in after leading at Maryborough last start and although she draws the car park she does everything right and is so honest. ENJOY A MALABU (11) was super first up from a break at Tabcorp Park after messing up the start. He too can be a force with a better beginning. SELECTIONS: LOUEY LOUEY LOUEY (1), Backas Cobber (10), Earls Gold (7), Enjoy A Malabu (11) RATINGS: 1/10/7/11/9/2/6/5/3/8/4 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,7,10/ 1,2,7,9,10,11/ 1,2,7,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which costs 33.33%) 7 SEW Eurodrive Pace 9.30 2150m. $5000.

He has a sound stand record and is hard to beat. KING HIGH (4) needed the run when fourth to Ice Ice in a stand start at Tabcorp Park two runs ago then he copped plenty of pressure in the lead and did a good job to hang onto second behind Artiology at Shepparton last Saturday night. He pings the tapes and will give them something to chase should he get the lead. VILLAGEBURNER (1) flew home along the sprint lane to just miss behind Classical Musician at Maryborough last start and with a cheap run on the pegs probable here he has a show at good odds. SMART PAY (3), DANGER IN DISGUISE (11), AS IT IS IN HEAVEN (2) and FLIGHT TO MIKINOS (5) have each way chances in a wide race.

He looks the leader tonight and he may just be able to pinch this. HOOSHOTTHESHERRIFF (1) didn't have much luck at Maryborough last time and from the pole he should get every possible. LILY MAY (4) ran fifth to On Any Day at Tabcorp Park last Friday night and will appreciate this class. INDI GLOVES (5) is the next best.

BUNDY BABE (6) didn't have much luck when fourth here three back, scored comfortably at Albury two runs ago then she failed to beat a runner home at Temora. Obviously she wasn't herself there and at her best she'd beat these easily. SHEEZ NO FOOL (8) had her chance when fourth to Lord Lancelot first up from a break at Shepparton just over a month ago. She was well held in a recent Kyabram trial but with some luck from the tricky draw she can be competitive. LORDY GIRL (10) finished off well after a cheap run for second to Brittany Anna at Charlton two back then she never got into it behind Bolac Boy on the same circuit six days later. She draws poorly but should be getting home ok. ANGEL KYEEMA (2), LORD RAGLAN (11), SHES LETHAL (5), BROTHER FRANCIS (12) and SPAGETIWESTERN (3) all have claims in a dead set raffle.

He hasn't race for nearly eight weeks but he has been tuned up for this with two easy trial hit outs at Shepparton and Kilmore recently. He draws well and Team Nagambie are flying. SINGING CREEK (5) won narrowly first up from a spell at Maryborough two back then she got caught without cover and wound up fourth to Unbundled at Charlton. Her mobile record is super and The Shoog will drive her well. SUPER PETITE (3) looked good winning here first up two runs ago then she messed up the start and took no competitive part at Shepparton just over a fortnight ago. She can be a bit risky early but should she trot all the way she'll be in the finish. MUNDAKA (10) has been in good form this season with a tough third to Imamusclesyankee at Kilmore his latest effort.

He has since trialled well at Shepparton and with luck from the extreme alley he'll go very close. NOVA ARAMA (4) ran third to Lady Belladonna in a Semi Final of the Vicbred two runs ago then she was outclassed in the Final by Rocknrolla back in July last year. She has had three trials at Bendigo to fit her for this and with her gate speed she may be able to find the pegs first. JONARK MAY (9) was placed on debut at Bendigo then he over raced and finished last at Shepparton before heading for a break. He won a Bendigo trial over NOVA ARAMA (4) nine days ago and should be dangerous. BEBOP (3) bombed the start first up at Shepparton just over a month ago but she has since trialled well there and from the nice draw she can be a major player.

She went back to back at Shepparton and Horsham in impressive fashion prior to sitting parked and finishing a close up fifth to Morgan Abby in the Gold Chalice at Tabcorp Park. She'll make a play for the lead and be too good. ITS GAME ON (6) finally gets a front row draw and she is sure to be pressing forward. She should've finished closer at Nyah last start and if she can muster enough speed to make a play for the early lead she is a strong quinella chance. SHAZOOKA (4) is a speedy beginner who may get to the pegs first and then hand up. She should get a soft run thereafter and might offer some value for trifecta players. MEANDMYSHADOW (1), CRUSADER LASS (5), RAIDER ROBIN (9) and KOROBEIT NIKKI (8) are the only other possible place hopes.

He was a game third to Hollywood Bromac at Tabcorp Park two runs back then he was taken to Harold Park for a heat of the Mount Eden where he failed to handle the track and broke on numerous occasions. He trialled impressively at Shepparton six days ago rating 2:02.0 and running his last half in 56.5. He has the speed to lead and looks too good. ADISTACTOS (4) is a speedy customer who has been only fair in two runs since winning at Bendigo in slick time. Don't think he can cross SLY FANTASY (3) but with a slow beginner drawn the pole he may be able to jump in behind the leader and get every hope. GUS WITHERSPOON (2) has only moderate form on paper but he draws to get a soft run on the pegs and can place along with FELLAFROM LOCKSLEY (5) and GOFORZOE (7).

He led easily from gate two and three down a blistering last half to bolt in under a hand drive from Sutton. He draws wider today but with the lack of depth on his inside he should get the lead once more and a repeat performance of last start will see him beat these. JETSHAWJOE (10) was third to Rebel Town in a strong Albury race two back then he found Ariah Prince too good for him at Temora after having his chance in front. He doesn't draw well but he looks the main danger to this favourite. HES SO COOL (3) ran second to Top Pennymaker at Echuca ten days ago which was an improvement on some ordinary Leeton form. He leaves the mobile swiftly and he is a chance of grabbing the leaders back once PIECES OF A DREAM (6) works his way to the front. ADVANCED CROSSING (11) was awful at Kilmore last start but his second to Artiology at Shepparton prior gives him a place chance in this.

He draws the best of the big guns, will push forward, possibly lead and be very hard to beat. GOLDEN SHOWGIRL (11) went super time in winning at Bendigo then she sat in the breeze and was a touch disappointing running fourth to Life Inthefastlane at Tabcorp Park 12 days ago. She draws poorly but with some speed on she can be a force. RAKAMAZ (10) found Rocketrod Cullen (won again since) too strong for him at Charlton in slick time last start. He follows speed nicely and should he get a start he has strong each way claims. FALCON DOORS (2) had every possible in front last time at Echuca but found Rosenlea too good for him.

He has since won a Shepparton trial in fast time and his trainer takes the lines today. READMYMIND (2) looms as his main danger. He was never a factor in a fast run sprint affair at Bendigo last start but he draws favourably in this and he may be the pilot. KUNARI KEEPTIME (1) beat moderates at Temora last start but he comes up with the pole and gets the little master. DENYSDILEMMA (9) draws to get a good run through and he can run into a place first up. All remaining runners have trifecta and first four prospects.
