He has gate speed and his chance will be enhanced should he cross and find the lead. DANGER: ATA BEAU (7) did plenty of work when an impressive debut winner at Kilmore eleven days ago and from the trailing draw she ll be sitting just off them when they settle. OTHERS: LOMBO KEEPA SECRET (1) led all the way to score here back in August, failed at her next two and hasn t been seen since, but she draws for first up success. ROMANTIC BLISS (4) worked hard and wide in the final circuit when beaten a head into third place behind ATA BEAU (7) at Kilmore at only her second race start and will be improved further for that effort. SHEZ A SPY (3) is a winner on this circuit from four starts and will strip fitter for her first up Shepparton fifth a fortnight ago. SELECTIONS: YERRINGTON BOB (2), Ata Beau (7), Lombo Keepa Secret (1), Romantic Bliss (4). RATINGS:2/7/1?4/3/10. SUGGESTED BET: YERRINGTON BOB (2) to win. 2 Dorrie Schmedje 7.00 2530m. $5000.

A seven time winner, he s beaten far better than these in the past and resumes with Nathan Jack from a long spell off a handy trial effort. DANGER: MAORI VACATION (9) ran a nice race first up when third at Bendigo last week, will be improved and is another that drops in grade. OTHERS: BEEFOUR (4), a stablemate of MACUENROAD (8), was a Shepparton winner from two starts last season and will be better for his first up unplaced Bendigo effort a month ago ñ he s won two trials since. ROBBIE ZUVE (3) is a plodding type who s due to improve and has each way claims along with every other runner. SELECTIONS: MACUENROAD (8), Maori Vacation (9), Beefour (4), Robbie Zuve (3). RATINGS:8?9/2,3,4?/1,7,9?/5,6. SUGGESTED BET: Box the field in the trifecta and hope for a profit. 3 Christies Welding 7.31 2160m. $5000.

DANGER: SON OF JULIA (11) followed a luckless first up fourth on this circuit with a solid third at Shepparton last time and although drawn poorly, probably has the best formline than any of these. OTHERS: SUDDEN SMILE (7) didn t fire in two runs last season but was well supported first up in a Bendigo stand last week where he began badly then lost his driver. He d won two trials prior to that outing and merits respect. MAGIC ACE (5) hasn t done much so far but the stable is in hot form and improvement can be expected. SELECTIONS: SHANIRA (4), SON OF JULIA (11), Sudden Smile (7), Magic Ace (5). RATINGS:4/11/5?7/10. SUGGESTED BET: SHANIRA (4) to win. 4 Leigh Kent M'rial 8.00 2160m. $5000.

A close third to Dobop here was followed by a death seat Warragul victory and a tough third to Dual Agent Tabman in fast time at Bendigo last week. DANGER: ALL ABOUT ART (1) was runner up at Melton, then had the run of the race to score at Geelong before pulling a flat tyre when fifth at Globe Derby last time. He has gate speed and should be in front for a long way for new trainer Zac Cornell. OTHERS: JOHNNY TEE NZ (6) beat a handy field at Bendigo four starts back and his runs since have been quite okay against strong opposition. Each way chances to GIVEUSAGRIN (2) and GEORGE SAMUEL (3), who grades extremely well. SELECTIONS: IAMNOTABINDI (5), All About Art (1), Johnny Tee Nz (6), Giveusagrin (2). RATINGS:5/1?6/2,3/4?7?

He had the run of the race when a close third to Our Walden Bury and Cromac Jamie in a fast Melton stand last Friday night and this looks a lot easier. Normally a speedy beginner, he ll be past many of these when they settle. DANGER: PIECES OF A DREAM (9), a winner from the stand, has been an improver lately with thirds here and at Shepparton and a last start come-from-behind Shepparton success all from the mobile. OTHERS: EARLS REIGN (7) was a most impressive Bendigo winner from the mobile three starts back before a luckless mid- field finish at Shepparton and a handy third there last week. He s handled the stand in the past and looks nicely suited. SELECTIONS: LAUGHING HOLME NZ (8), Pieces Of A Dream (9), Earls Reign (7), Safely Loaded (2). RATINGS:8/9/2,3,7/4,5/1,6. SUGGESTED BET: LAUGHING HOLME NZ (8) to win. 6 Vicbred Platinum 9.00 1755m. $7000. 4yo & up C0 Only RBD Mobile Heat 1 70s54 MOODEMERE Mark Buckingham Fr 15.00 2 7631s STORMED OUT Chris Alford Fr 2.00 3 82s6s WAR EMBLEM Brian Gath Fr 13.00 4 s9476 FIDDLERS LANE Laurie Allan Fr 101.00 5 008s1 WHATS THE BIG IDEA (Em1) Doc Wilson Fr 2.30 6 s4352 NOLAGALILE Nigel Milne Fr 101.00 Second Line 7 38438 ACESNEIGHTS Glenn Douglas Fr 17.00 8 78578 JASMIN ART Greg Sugars Fr 101.00 9 24432 SAABRINA MISS Haydon Gray (C) Fr 17.00 10 0s CHIPINAWAYATLIFE Scratched Fr --- 11 3718 MAYBE BETTER Rebecca Bartley (C) Fr 13.00 TOP PICK: STORMED OUT (2) looks nicely graded in CO company as a winner of four of his 16 starts. He hasn t started since scoring in all the way fashion in Melton back in August (56.2 home) but has been trialling well and draws to lead all the way. DANGER: WHATS THE BIG IDEA (5) was resuming when he charged to the lead and scored by an ever increasing 26 metres at Shepparton last Sunday. On that run he s a future star who should have an intriguing battle with his chief rival. OTHERS: MAYBE BETTER (11) ran third in a hot race at Charlton on debut in December then was luckless at Cobram before an impressive come from behind Junee success five weeks ago. She weakened after working hard to the breeze in the subsequent final of that race and will appreciate having a month between runs. WAR EMBLEM (3) was a talented two year old four seasons back but hasn t started since his sole 3YO run when unplaced in the Albury Derby three years ago. He s trialled okay and should be kept safe. SELECTIONS: STORMED OUT (2), Whats The Big Idea (5), Maybe Better (11), War Emblem (3). RATINGS:2/5/11/1,3?7/9. SUGGESTED BET: Trifecta 2 and 5 to win and run second with 1, 3, 7, 9 and 11 for third. 7 Moama Bowling Club 9.30 2160m. $5000.

She drops back to her right level and looks one of the better bets on the program. DANGER: SPLENDID CHOICE NZ (3) led when cut down late at Shepparton last time and if in front again, will be hard to run down. OTHERS: CLASSIC LIFE (5) came from behind to win here three starts back and led all the way to win at Shepparton last Sunday. A handy mare, she s in with an each way chance. RAJAH WEALTH (1) and THEWINGMAN (6) have some chance as well. SELECTIONS: DOBOP (8), Splendid Choice Nz (3), Classic Life (5), Rajah Wealth (1). RATINGS:8/5/1/6.

DANGER: ADIOS GRYPHON NZ (6) was a big winner at Terang before Christmas, then joined the Glenn Douglas stable for two abject failures before galloping at the start and giving them 50 metres when beaten under a length by Keeper Of The Fire at Melton last weekend. OTHERS: Only danger to the above pair is MIAMI ROCKET NZ (7), who ran fourth from the breeze to Keeper Of The Fire at Melton, while MACHOMICAL (2) and ROJEN DREAM NZ (4) can be included in trifectas. SELECTIONS: THE SEVENTH SON (5), Adios Gryphon Nz (6), Miami Rocket Nz (7), Machomical (2). RATINGS:5/6/7.

DANGER: IMA VILLAGE CASPER (7) didn t run a bad race behind All Honour at Terang last time when fourth and if he gets the race run to suit he will be hitting the line strongly once more. OTHERS: DINANT (1) got it wrong at Ouyen last start when out the back behind Aldebaran Bluechip but he looks like gaining the gun run behind DRUNKEN DESIRE (2) and is in with an upset chance. THE ENDOFTHELINE (5) will find this easier than his latest run here behind The Noble Steed and is the other one in with a rough show. DARGLETIM (3) can place. SELECTIONS: DRUNKEN DESIRE (2), Ima Village Casper (7), Dinant (1), The Endoftheline (5) RATINGS: 2/ 7/ 1,5/ 3/ 4/ 6 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2/ 1,5,7/ 1,3,5,7 ($27 gets you 300%) 2 O'connors & Case 2.30 2100m. $3000. 3yo 3R0 To 3R1 PBD Mobile 1 FLOWERONTHEWALL Alex Ashwood (C) Fr 6.00 2 POWER OF ATTORNEY NZ Rodney Petroff Fr 7.00 3 45s23 ROCKY CARRINGTON Chris Svanosio Fr 10.00 4 BIG SMOKE HENRY Ross Conway Fr 15.00 5 877s BUBBALINKO Nick Youngson Fr 67.00 6 50s06 BRONCO APACHE Nathan Jack Fr 26.00 7 56524 PAR THREE NZ Michael Bellman Fr 31.00 Second Line 8 7s657 WATERBOY Neil McCallum Fr 51.00 9 4379s ALMOST EL EAGLE Chris Alford Fr 1.40 TOP PICK: ALMOST EL EAGLE (9) was one of this state s better 2YO s last season, winning 4 of his 12 outings and he resumes today off the back of an easy Shepparton trial success two weeks back from behind the strands where he ripped home in 57.7. He doesn t strike a strong race first up and it would be a shock to see him go under. DANGER: FLOWERONTHEWALL (1) is a Trent Medcraft-prepared daughter of Ponder on debut who trialled OK at Melton 10 days ago in preparation for this and from the pole draw expect her to run well. OTHERS: POWER OF ATTORNEY (2) is a son of Attorney General having his first start for Brent Lilley and is sure to be competitive after finishing just behind FLOWERONTHEWALL (1) in that same Melton workout mentioned above. ROCKY CARRINGTON (3), and BIG SMOKE HENRY (4) are the other main place hopes. SELECTIONS: ALMOST EL EAGLE (9), Floweronthewall (1), Power Of Attorney (2), Rocky Carrington (3) RATINGS: 9/ 1,2/ 3/ 4/ 7,6/ 8,5 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta 9/ 1,2,3,4 ($24 gets you 200%) 3 Western General 3.05 2100m. $3000. 4yo & up C1 Only RBD Mobile Heat 1 74264 MCARDLES ART NZ Zac Phillips (C,cl) Fr 2.70 2 92695 THE OPEN NZ Ellen Tormey (C) Fr 5.50 3 8s947 BLISSFULL SPANKER David Murphy Fr 5.00 4 34568 BARACKS ANGEL Chris Svanosio Fr 10.00 5 68740 BENHAR BRAT NZ Nigel Milne Fr 31.00 6 05s07 WEALTHY WARRIOR NZ Haydon Gray (C) Fr 34.00 7 98677 BREAKMYHEART Michael Bellman Fr 15.00 Second Line 8 269s3 PIRATES PLUNDER Daryl Weightman Fr 3.00 TOP PICK: MCARDLES ART (1) comes off a handy fourth at Mildura 9 days ago behind Oneonthewood where he worked home well from the rear and he looks suited today as he should either lead or trail the speed from the one hole and will get his chance to breakthrough for an overdue win. DANGER: PIRATES PLUNDER (8) resumed from a lengthy break at Horsham 8 days ago with a solid third to Make A Fuss after facing the breeze for the majority of the trip. He will be fitter for that effort and is the logical threat to MCARDLES ART (1). OTHERS: BLISSFULL SPANKER (3) will be nearing his peak now after three runs this time in and his chances will skyrocket here if he is able to speed to the lead as that is where he runs his best races. THE OPEN (2) hasn t looked dangerous of late but at his best he would be a big chance in a race of this nature so be sure to include him in winning calculations. BARACKS ANGEL (4) and BREAKMYHEART (7) can place. SELECTIONS: MCARDLES ART (1), Pirates Plunder (8), Blissfull Spanker (3), The Open (2) RATINGS: 1/ 8/ 3/ 2/ 4,7/ 5,6 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,2,3,8/ 1,2,3,8/ 1,2,3,4,7,8 ($24 gets you 50%) 4 Mallee Bull Cup 3.43 2100m. $3000. 4yo & up R2 To R4 PBD Mobile 1 98699 NICMAC BROMAC Brian Gath Fr 34.00 2 78376 TARLETON MATT Michael Bellman Fr 26.00 3 270s0 SKY SALUTE Neil McCallum Fr 7.00 4 40012 KURAHAUPO QUIN NZ Chris Alford Fr 1.60 5 s5630 SIR PHILO Duncan Dornauf (C) Fr 6.00 6 53145 MEET ME IN SEATTLE NZ Nathan Jack Fr 5.00 7 04450 ZURBARAN Ashley Matthews Fr 10.00 TOP PICK: KURAHAUPO QUIN (4) has been freshened up since finishing a narrow second to Jaccka Tom at Yarra Valley back on Boxing Day last year and was tuned up for this with a trial at Geelong last Monday night. He was impressive winning there two back in all-the-way fashion and if he brings that kind of form to the track tonight they won t see which way he went. DANGER: MEET ME IN SEATTLE (6) was a strong Bendigo winner three back and hasn t been disgraced at his past two behind Franco Jackson at Melton and Tinted Pearl at Globe Derby last Friday night. He is a one-paced type who will more than likely race up on the pace here and be there whacking away when the whips are cracking. OTHERS: SIR PHILO (5) struck trouble at Shepparton last Sunday when out the back behind Hoppyjoe but his third there prior behind Pieces Of A Dream was sound and good enough to give him an upset chance in this. SKY SALUTE (3) and ZURBARAN (7) look the other ones in with a knockout hope with place prospects going to TARLETON MATT (2).

DANGER: SHERPA STAR (10) ran an encouraging race on debut at Swan Hill when second to Star Of Paris but things went wrong for him at his next start at Ouyen when a hot favourite and he ended up out the back behind Hope To Star. He has been given a bit of time to get over that experience, trialled well at Bendigo last Sunday and if there is to be an upset it will come from him. OTHERS: STAR BUCCANEER (1) is a Paul Watson-trained son of Exotic Earl on debut today who is given a strong place chance from the ace alley going on his latest trial at Maryborough last month. ICONIC ART (3), ISNTSHESOMETHING (4), WENYAHOTYAHOT (5) and THE DEE EM DEVIL (6) are the other ones to throw in your exotics.

He does strike a very winnable race here however and if he can find somewhere close to his best form today he will be mighty hard to beat in this. DANGER: MAJOR BOUCHEA (1) is a 3YO taking on the older horses and he will need to improve on his first up seventh to Dora Pepperell at Maryborough two weeks ago but he showed talent as a 2YO last term and must be given a strong chance second up from the pole draw. OTHERS: MISTER PEPE (9) went wire-to-wire at Maryborough two runs ago and didn t disgrace himself at Geelong last time when fourth to Cookeyslass after facing the breeze so he should run well in this. ALLAWART UGO (13) and SMILEIFULUVME (6) are both risky but have the ability to be dangerous in this should they go around safely. ITS NOT DARK YET (4), TROT FOR PETE (2), DARTRENZAC (8) and SPIROS THE GREEK (3) can place.

Her form prior to that was excellent over the sprint trips and although she tackles the 2100m today from the car park draw expect her to push forward, take up the running and be mighty hard to run down. DANGER: STONETHECHRISTIAN (8) has performed well at both his runs this time in for Mark Thompson and looms as the most likely to upset LAVRA FLORENCE (7), although he will need a bit to go his way from the awkward draw.
