He pushed forward to lead and had to sustain a lot of pressure mid- race when a big winner of the Hunter Cup last outing so he is clearly the horse to beat. DANGER: MACH ALERT (8) has received every opportunity to defeat MAH SISH (2) at their past two meetings in the Ballarat and Hunter Cups but he looms as the logical second pick here. He has won five of his six starts at Menangle and has been competing at a higher level than most of his rivals. OTHERS: FOUR STARZZ FLASH (3) was awesome in his two New Zealand victories prior to a luckless sixth in the "Pure Steel" at Ballarat and an unplaced effort in the Hunter Cup where he was wide in the final circuit. This race might be more suitable so he is worth another chance. DEVIL DODGER (6) finished off reasonably well when sixth in the Ballarat Cup then had no clear run in the latter stages and should have finished closer in the Hunter Cup so he is not without a chance. GAIUS CAESAR (1) is better drawn than his latest eighth (7m) and was able to outstay his rivals at his previous effort so he is worth a place ticket. SELECTIONS: MAH SISH (2), Mach Alert (8), Four Starzz Flash (3), Devil Dodger (6) SUGGESTED BET: MAH SISH (2) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta with 2 to win from 1,3,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 166%) 8 Hondo Grattan Stakes 9.45 1609m. $50000. 4yo RBD Mobile Group 2 TAB Fixed Odds. 1 52135 ONLY THE BRAVE NZ G W Dixon Fr 26.00 2 1s183 HAWTHORNDEN NZ G K Chapple Fr 101.00 3 33215 BETTOR SWEET NZ (EMERG) L R Panella (C) Fr 26.00 4 s1121 EMPEROR MONTANA NZ D W Graham Fr 26.00 5 25225 MONARKMAC (EMERG) G W Dixon Fr 26.00 6 31111 SCANDALMAN NZ G J Fitzpatrick Fr 2.90 7 s2111 MACH BEAUTY R P Morris (C) Fr 41.00 8 14613 EXCITEUSINTHECITY D R Hancock Fr 21.00 9 1s114 KIWI IDEAL NZ AMButt Fr 5.00 10 11s22 CHRISTEN ME NZ D J Dunn Fr 2.00 11 0s156 GRAND STRIDE L A McCarthy Fr 11.00 12 12141 CALIFORNIA SUNSET D G Picker Fr 31.00 TOP PICK: CHRISTEN ME (10) is an outstanding New Zealander that produced a breathtaking performance when he demolished his rivals at Addington on New Zealand Cup Day. He finished a close second behind dual New Zealand Cup hero Terror To Love last outing and should make his presence felt. DANGER: SCANDALMAN (6) is shooting for five wins in succession and is a good chance of completing the task despite having won only two of his seven attempts at Menangle. He blitzed his rivals in fast time in the Junee Cup last outing and has a good record when competing against his own age group. OTHERS: KIWI IDEAL (9) is a New Zealand pacer that has won seven of his eleven starts and took on the open class pacers when fourth at Alexandra Park last outing. He is awkwardly drawn but has too much ability to dismiss. GRAND STRIDE (11) has been disappointing at his past two attempts but he brilliantly won the Breeders Challenge last season and a return to his peak would see him go close to winning. The Queensland pacers ONLY THE BRAVE (1) and EMPEROR MONTANA (4) both have ability and are value hopes from their good draw. SELECTIONS: CHRISTEN ME (10), Scandalman (6), Kiwi Ideal (9), Grand Stride (11) SUGGESTED BET: CHRISTEN ME (10) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 6,9,10/ 1,4,6,8,9,10,11/ 1,4,6,8,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 18.52%) 9 Pace 10.15 1609m. $22000.

He led when a close third in a 1.52.4 mile behind Grand Stride then finished second behind Exciteusinthecity last outing where he endured a tough run. He is widely drawn but is a strong winning chance. DANGER: MISTER SHEEDY (3) is a tough Victorian pacer that endured a wide trip and went down fighting when third in the Country Clubs Cup Final at Melton last outing. He led in his recent victories at Ballarat and Kilmore and will take catching if he is able to lead again. OTHERS: MACCA KELLY (6) was resuming since a second in the Breeders Crown Final at Melton when he won impressively at Canberra where he settled mid-field on the markers and showed brilliant acceleration in the final 50m. This race is harder than his first up effort but he has too much ability to dismiss. DRIFTING WEST (1) is a classy Tasmanian pacer that finished second in the Hobart Cup on January 13. He is ideally drawn for his Menangle debut and is not without a chance. SELECTIONS: MANTOMAN (8), Mister Sheedy (3), Macca Kelly (6), Drifting West (1) SUGGESTED BET: MANTOMAN (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,3,6,8/ 1,3,6,8/ 1,2,3,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 41.66%) 1 Pace 6.24 2190m. $2500.

He is very versatile and should make his presence felt. DANGER: IM ON TARGET (8) won the Christmas Gift four starts back and sustained a strong run when a big second behind Stormy Sirocco last week. He has built up an impressive strike rate and looms as one of the main chances again. OTHERS: SHELBYVILLE (2) has only scored once in twenty- six starts at Menangle but she led throughout to win brilliantly at Newcastle last outing and recorded fast time at Maitland on January 05. She possesses early pace and is worth an investment from her good draw. SHIPWRECK (9) has been freshened since an unplaced effort at Menangle in December but his efforts at his last preparation were tremendous including a victory in a mile of 1.52.2 on November 27. He is poorly drawn but will be fitter for a recent trial win (1.56.3, 56.2) so he is capable of giving a forward showing. SCARRYMCLEARY (4) has performed strongly since coming from New Zealand and followed a luckless seventh in the Christmas Gift with a comfortable victory against slightly easier opposition on December 29. He is nicely drawn and should go well. SELECTIONS: GLOBAL VIEW (5), Im On Target (8), Shelbyville (2), Shipwreck (9) SUGGESTED BET: GLOBAL VIEW (5) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 5,8/ 2,4,5,8,9/ 2,4,5,6,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 50%) 2 Pace 6.35 1609m. $22000.

He scored at Menangle on December 08 and ran fifth in the Christmas Gift Final so he must be considered as a winning chance here. DANGER: IN NO MANS LAND (1) is a fast beginner from the mobile and recorded three straight victories prior to a third in the Christmas Gift. He struck trouble at Temora last outing and is worth another chance under these conditions. OTHERS: CHRISTIAN WORLD (2) is a handy Victorian pacer that was resuming since July when he loomed up to win on the home turn then peaked on his run in very fast time at Maryborough. He should be fitter from that effort and is worth thought on an each way basis. MY TEMUDJIN (6) pushed forward to lead and was gunned down in the latter stages at his latest narrow second. He is a tough type and was coming back on the line last week so he is capable of going one better here. AUSSIEAUSSIESTRIDE (9) is a talented 5yo pacer that has won seven of his twelve starts. He pushed forward to race without cover and was narrowly beaten in a slick mile of 1.53.9 two starts back. He gained a nice run just off the pace and disappointed mid-week but he is worth another chance. SELECTIONS: AMERICAN MUSCLE (3), In No Mans Land (1), Christian World (2), My Temudjin (6) SUGGESTED BET: AMERICAN MUSCLE (3) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,3/ 1,2,3,6,9/ field (Cost $20, which gives 31.25%) 3 Pace 7.00 1609m. $22000.

He worked hard for over a lap before finding the lead and fought on determinedly to win the Country Clubs Cup at Melton last outing so he should take beating on his Menangle debut. DANGER: RANGATAUA RAY (9) is a former New Zealand pacer that pushed forward to lead and recorded a slick mile of 1.52.5 on his local debut. His efforts in New Zealand were against the Cup class so he appears to be very well placed against this opposition. OTHERS: CHARDANAE (2) is a smart mare that recorded a sizzling mile of 1.51.8 when she won on December 15. She finished off in a final quarter of 26.5 seconds when she scored two weeks ago and got too far back from a wide draw on Saturday night so she looks to be a good each way chance here. STORMY SIROCCO (8) is racing in great form with a second behind the exciting pacer Pure Power followed by a tough win last week. He is terribly drawn but is racing well enough to figure in the finish. GARNET RIVER (10) is a short course specialist and is a value hope despite the wide draw. SELECTIONS: IM CORZIN TERROR (4), Rangataua Ray (9), Chardanae (2), Stormy Sirocco (8) SUGGESTED BET: IM CORZIN TERROR (4) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,4,8,9/ 2,4,8,9/ 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 27.77%) 4 Pace 7.27 1609m. $22000.

He should be improved by that performance and raced competitively during New Zealand Cup week so he should prove hard to beat here. DANGER: WHATA AVENUE (10) has been a big improver recently and ran a massive race for second behind Restrepo in the Central Victorian Championship where the winner smashed the track record. She beat a smart 3yo pacer in Hard Copy when she won last outing and is worth thought despite the extreme draw. OTHERS: MONARKMAC (7) is a Queensland pacer that finished hard for an eye-catching second in a 1.55.1 mile at the Gold Coast and followed with a luckless fifth from the inside of the second line. He won a race at Menangle last season so he must be respected. CONDAGEN (1) finished off strongly to win at Menangle last outing and is steadily working back to his best form. He may be headed off at the start but he is worth thought on an each way basis. OUR EL NINO (3) has won five of his ten starts for the season and competed strongly in two heats of the Christmas Gift in December so he has the ability to mix it with this class. SELECTIONS: POACHER (8), Whata Avenue (10), Monarkmac (7), Condagen (1) SUGGESTED BET: POACHER (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 7,8,10/ 1,3,4,5,7,8,10/ 1,3,4,5,7,8,10 (Cost $20, which gives 22.22%) 5 Robin Dundee Stakes 8.00 1609m. $50000.

She is much better drawn for this assignment and should take tossing. DANGER: TORQUE IN MOTION (3) performed a long way short of expectations in her two Queensland starts since winning the Ladyship Mile last year. She possesses a dynamic turn of speed and bounced back with a good trial win at the Gold Coast last week (1.54.6, 56.2, 27.3) so a better effort is expected. OTHERS: FOREVER GOLD (2) raced without cover throughout and was very brave when third to Baby Bling in the Teeny Teeny Stakes (1.52.0). She only secured a clear run in the latter stages when a fast finishing third in the Ranji Bill Stakes last time so she looks to be a good each way bet from her nice draw. ELUSIVE CHICK (4) was racing at Group One level in New Zealand prior to her victory at Menangle last week where she was headed off at the start then pushed forward to lead (1.53.9). She has been racing in great form and should give a bold showing. CHEER THE LADY (9) won first up since a Breeders Crown victory at Melton and must be respected. TATIJANA BROMAC (10) returns to Sydney after some big efforts in New Zealand and boasts a consistent record at Menangle so she cannot be underestimated.

He was stranded on the outside of the leader throughout when a brave second in the Australia Day Cup and followed with a fast finishing fourth in the Hunter Cup. DANGER: PURE POWER (1) performed below expectations on his Australian debut but has improved with every effort since and recorded a fast mile of 1.51.0 when coming from off the speed last week. The inside draw may not be ideal but he was placed in the New Zealand FFA in November and has the ability to run a big race. OTHERS: CHARIOT KING (7) has been racing in great form and boxed on well after working hard in the early to middle stages when a close third to Lous Lad last week. He finished fourth in the Treuer Memorial in December and rates as an each way chance. The star pacers EXCEL STRIDE (3) and WASHAKIE (6) have both raced short of their best form recently but would be a winning chance if they could return to their peak. EXCEL STRIDE (3) received every chance when a battling fourth in the Australia Day Cup then did some work and battled on fairly well for fourth last week.
