The horses that have been beating him look like a who s who of promising youngsters and include Flaming Flutter, Our Missionary Man, Ginger Bliss, Timeseel and Artique and the opposition here isn t anywhere near the class of the aforementioned. DANGER: KITTY FISHER (10) had solid form in the Sunraysia before recently joining Leigh Miles for whom she ran a nice fifth first up at Maryborough last week. She ll be a big improver. OTHERS: WARRIOR MAC (4) is a handy type who battled on solidly when beaten under a length from the one-one in a fast 1:56.2 at Swan Hill last week and he looks best of the front line brigade. SELECTIONS: SOHO EASTWOOD (9), Kitty Fisher (10), Warrior Mac (4), Just Be Modern (2). RATINGS:9/10/4/2?Care3,5,6and8. SUGGESTED BET: SOHO EASTWOOD (9) to win. 2 Echuca Toyota Pace 6.58 1755m. $5000.

A handy Yarra Valley winner last season, he resumed at Cranbourne nine days ago where Brian Gath turned the handle bars down in the early stages with a staggering 26.4 first quarter and this fellow led until the home straight and battled on solidly for his fourth placing. He ll be much fitter for that, his first run for nearly two months and draws again to use his gate speed. DANGER: CHIQUITA BROMAC NZ (2) is a talented young mare who comes off a Cobram second last week where she worked early, then took a trail and battled on okay for second in a fast middle distance affair. OTHERS: LEIGHMONT (5) and MOSQUITO ZEPHYR (7) look the most prominent place chances. SELECTIONS: I KNOW THE RULES NZ (1), Chiquita Bromac NZ (2), Leighmont (5), Mosquito Zephyr (7).

She ll be fitter for two runs from a long spell and this looks her race. DANGER: TRIBAL COLOURS (6) has been placed in two of eleven and didn t set the world on fire in five runs earlier this season but resumes from a break of six weeks off a 2:00.5 Shepparton trial victory where he finished off in 57.2. He ll be mighty hard to beat if he runs up to that effort. OTHERS: MISS RUTHLESS (5) is an honest mare who sat in the breeze to beat similar company at Bendigo back in November and her latest efforts when second at Swan Hill and luckless at Charlton last Sunday are good enough recommendation for this. SELECTIONS: CLASSIC LIFE (7), Tribal Colours (6), Miss Ruthless (5), Direct Art (1). RATINGS:7/6?/5/1/3,11? SUGGESTED BET: CLASSIC LIFE (7) to win. 4 Christies Welding 8.01 1755m. $5000.

He grades well against these and draws for first up success. DANGER: REGALRAMAPLEASURE (4) is a consistent gelding who recently won at Albury and was runner up at Cobram and Shepparton before not finishing far off them in a hot race at Shepparton last Saturday night where they rated 1:56.3. OTHERS: CLASSIC ICON NZ (7) never has much luck in his races. He was badly blocked when fourth at Shepparton last time but drawn behind the early leader here, he ll be close enough if he can weave a clear passage. SELECTIONS: WAYNESFIRST (3), Regalramapleasure (4), Classic Icon NZ (7), Splendid Choice NZ (10). RATINGS:3?/4/7/10/1?2,8.

He showed up well as a 3YO last season and although winless this term, is close to a breakthrough. Second at Bendigo three starts back, he didn t have much luck after that in a hot Melton 4YO, then was held up and hit the line well when third to stablemate Daylight Dan in a CVC standing start heat at Charlton a fortnight ago. The mobile and rare good draw suit him perfectly. DANGER: GO EL ZHAR NZ (1) is an honest gelding who draws for victory. A couple of recent placings at Melton were followed by a close second at Swan Hill in fast time last week and from the good alley around this tight circuit, he ll either lead or sit behind whatever does. OTHERS: TOP TAMBA (10) has won 11 of 31 and won a string of races last season before his form tapered off. In the betting first up from a back mark at Charlton a fortnight ago, he worked to the breeze but dropped out but will be improved for that effort and is a classy young gelding when right. CHARM ALARM NZ (5) got well back in a Kilmore stand last time before closing late in a fast last half for third. He has gate speed and should be prominent. SELECTIONS: OUR WALDEN BURY NZ (2), Go El Zhar NZ (1), Top Tamba (10), Charm Alarm NZ (5). RATINGS:2/1/5,7,10?/6,7,9.

She ll handle these. DANGER: SAPHIRA (3) has been runner up here and twice at Albury recently and from the alley looks clear second pick. OTHERS: XMAS IN MANHATTAN (7) battled on solidly when runner up in fast time to Gangster Boy at Cobram last week and is strongly in the place and trifecta mix as is consistent performer WOKE UP TIRED (9). SELECTIONS: DOBOP (4), Saphira (3), Xmas In Manhattan (7), Woke Up Tired (9). RATINGS:4/3/7/9/5/2.

He had the run of the race to beat similar opposition at Bendigo recently, then from an awkward second line draw battled on well for fourth at Hamilton nine days ago. DANGER: OHOKA COURAGE NZ (2) came from well back to win a Maryborough mobile in a brilliant 1:54.8 for the sprint journey on New Years Eve then lost his driver after doing things wrong in a Bendigo stand in his next run. His last start Cobram third from an awkward draw was a good one as he battled on solidly at the end of a 26.7 last staNZa. OTHERS: GRINS RENDITION (7) resumes off some handy trial efforts and should be sitting just off the pace from this trailing draw. His form last season was solid and he grades well. SELECTIONS: JOHNNY TEE NZ (1), Ohoka Courage NZ (2), Grins Rendition (7), Bevstuanmarylu (3). RATINGS:1/2/7?/3?4?/5,6,10?

DANGER: ROBBIE ZUVE (2) beat DABBSEY (7) by a big margin here three starts back, then found trouble at his next run before having no luck in a CVC heat at Charlton a fortnight ago and realistically the top two picks have plenty on their rivals. OTHERS: DABBSEY (7), MISS ELIZA (10) and to a lesser extent STARLIGHT LEE (6) and CARNLEY NZ (8) are the other possibles.

DANGER: HEATHBERN STAR (3) has snared the broNZe medal at both of his runs to date and shows some promise. He has race experience on his side and looms as the main threat to FIRE IN HEAVEN (1). OTHERS: HOLDONSU (4) is a son of Elsu with Beau Tindale who is having his first start today and he should be competitive going on his most recent trial effort at Geelong 10 days ago. RIP IT UP SISTER (2) is the next best.

DANGER: COOKEYSLASS (9) resumed from a spell at Melton 13 days ago with a handy fourth to Sonofpaco from behind the tapes and with that run sure to improve her she looks the most likely to cause an upset. OTHERS: WORTHERLY (3) is first up today without having trialled but he had reasonable form when last at the races and is the other one given a chance of knocking off the favourite. MY ARCHIE WAY (8), SMILING ROSE (7) and APACHE COOMA (1) can place.

He does have the 30m to overcome over the 2150m, which is never easy but his class should take him close to winning this. DANGER: BACKINA LIFETIME (8) didn t run a bad race at Melton last time when fifth to Sandys Boy and she is another who will find this assignment right up her alley. OTHERS: OI YOU (9) has been competing at Country Cup s level without being dangerous but he too will relish this company and rates highly with chances also going to CHIPMONT LAD (7) and REIGN OF DARKNESS (5).

He meets some handy ones today but would only need to run up to that trial to be nigh on impossible to beat. DANGER: SUMMER ACE (4) has been trying to breakthrough for a while without success but he is not far off and if he gets the right run in transit he will be a big threat to ALL I CAN BE (5). OTHERS: ITS DUTCH COURAGE (2) was no match for Im Corzin Terror at Shepparton last Saturday night but she wasn t disgraced and is in with an upset show here along with VINNI GAMBINO (3) and to a lesser extent CHARISTEAS (1).

DANGER: REAL GRIT (5) was well-driven last start by Lance Justice to get the cash at Cranbourne via the passing lane and with the early lead likely to be his today he should get his chance to go back-to-back. OTHERS: BELLA HOTSHOT (10) worked home OK into fourth spot behind Heza Presidente at Cranbourne 9 days back and has each way claims along with the resuming EXSALONT (7) and surprise Ballarat winner from two runs ago DAINTY CLOUD (6).

He will find this race easier and looks the one to beat in a tricky contest. DANGER: SOHO WINSLET (6) dropped out of it at Melton last start after working hard to lead but she did run a handy race at Geelong prior when second to Tea House and she is worthy of another chance. OTHERS: GENERAL JUSTICE (3) battled on OK for third to Be Cool here last week and is in with a shot along with the awkwardly drawn pair of IMA LUCKY GUY (8) and ELSU DREAM (11).

She is probably better off the pace and with the right luck from the wide alley she will take holding out. DANGER: LAUGHING HOLME (9) is a bit one-paced and probably not really suited to the short course but he is racing well at present and if it becomes a test of attrition then he can come out on top. OTHERS: LIVELY OPERATIVE (11) is a handy sit-sprinter who draws poorly after a bad getaway at Melton last start but if he gains the right drag into it today he can be dangerous. LOMBO HALLMARK (1) looks the other main winning chance.

DANGER: MAJOR LANDSCAPE (9) mixed it with some quality types in four runs last season and he resumes here off the back of a handy trial at Melton from behind the tapes 17 days ago. He is talented and will run well first up. OTHERS: CLANCYS FOBWATCH (7) has trialled nicely at Shepparton since finishing third to Easy Lightning two weeks back and he rates highly in this along with NIKKIS DELIGHT (6) and MARY MON (12).
