She will be improved, draws to lead or sit just off the pace once more and looks a great gamble in an open contest. DANGER: BRITE SPARK LOMBO (6) resumes from a 6-month break tonight off the back of some handy trial efforts on this track and at Melton in recent weeks. She is talented and should be dangerous first up. DANGER: BRITE SPARK LOMBO (6) resumes from a 6-month break tonight off the back of some handy trial efforts on this track and at Melton in recent weeks. She is talented and should be dangerous first up. OTHERS: CLEVEDON BETTY (10) ran a nice race at Melton last start when fifth to Lierre Noir where she got dragged back to near last at the 400m by a tiring runner and was doing her best work late. She has a strong each way chance along with ILLAWONG JOYFUL (11) and HERE AND NOW (3) who both found trouble at Bendigo last Sunday when running on. RATINGS: 1/ 6/ 10/ 11/ 3/ 4,5,9,8,7 SUGGESTED BET: FLOWERONTHEWALL (1) each way 2 Ray Beckley Pace 7.00 2100m. $5000.

He leaves the mobile well, looks a great chance of getting the lead and from there he is sure to take running down. DANGER: OUR FABIOLLA (1) was last seen at Kilmore back in September last year when third to Classic Bliss and she has had the benefit of a trial hit out on this circuit 12 days ago to liven her up. She should gain a nice trail from the ace alley and be a force via the passing lane in the stretch. OTHERS: ITSCOTTOBEGOOD (2) comes off a C0 series where he ran a handy second to Leighmont in a heat at Kilmore before not having the best of luck in the final at Melton 5 days later when seventh to Chiquita Bromac and he has a knockout chance in this along with VIVA COURAGE (12). ROWILLIE (4) and PACQUIAO (6) can place. RATINGS: 3/ 1/ 2,12/ 4,6/ 9,10/ 7,11,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifectas 1,3/ 1,3/ 2,4,6,12 for $16 which gets you 200% and 1,3/ 2,4,6,12/ 1,3 for $8 which gets you 100% 3 Next Meeting 7 March 7.30 2100m. $5000.

He will get back from the wide alley but is sure to be hitting the line hard and will take holding out. DANGER: MISTER DOUGLAS (4) didn't have much luck in the above mentioned Melton race when down the track but his form prior in this grade was top notch and he will be a force. OTHERS: THE SEVENTH SON (8) and ULTIMATE DEAL (5) look the other main winning chances with rougher claims given to FRANCO TEMPLAR (3), MIAMI ROCKET (2) and IGETAROUND (1). LUV THA ACES LOMBO (6) and FIRE IT UP (10) can place. RATINGS:7/4/8/5/3/2/1/10/6 SUGGESTED BET: DARTMOOR (7) to win 4 Faggs Mitre 10 Pace 8.03 2100m. $5000.

He hasn't trialled in preparation for this and barrier 1 probably isn't ideal for him as he doesn't possess a great deal of gate speed, but with ordinary luck in running he really should beat this lot. DANGER: SMOKIN JOKER (2) is a fast beginner who looks a great chance of speeding to the early lead here and Mick Bellman will have options up his sleeve thereafter. He isn't in the class of FIERY ACHIEVER (1) but looks the most likely to cause a boil over. OTHERS: ALPINE ANDY (3) will be better for his first up fifth to Pocket Legend at Cranbourne 10 days ago and this handy sit-sprinter is added to the list of upset chances along with TERE T (4) who finished second to Pocket Legend in the above mentioned Cranbourne race at his latest outing and the blowout Melton winner from three runs ago JORDYLAN (9). ASTRAL FLIGHT (8), OUR ICARUS (5), SPERO DENARIO (6) and WHEATSHEAF AVABALL (7) can place. RATINGS: 1/ 2/ 3,4,9/ 8,5,6,7 SUGGESTED BET: FIERY ACHIEVER (1) to win 5 Zilco Pace 8.30 1609m. $5000.

She comes up with the ideal draw tonight, should pounce on the lead and from there this richly talented filly will be extremely hard to gun down over the short course. DANGER: FAIREST ONE YOUARE (4) comes off the VHRSC Provincial Cup where she went wire-to-wire in her heat at Maryborough before finishing a game fourth to Whata Avenue in the final at Melton 8 days ago. She will find this race much easier and is the obvious threat to LIERRE NOIR (2). OTHERS: BIG MUMMA FITZ (5) caused a boil over at Melton last time (LIERRE NOIR (2) fourth) and can get into the placings tonight with the right luck from the tricky barrier along with CORBIN LEE (8) and OK TO FLY (11). RATINGS: 2/ 4/ 5/ 8/ 11/ 7,6,10/ 1,3,9 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2/ 4/ 5,8,11 ($30 gets you 1000%) 6 Bendigo Bank Trotters Hcp 9.03 2570m. $5000.

He switches back to the standing start tonight, which is a worry because he is yet to place in 3 goes from behind the strands but if Gavin Lang can get him away safely and maintain a margin on TENDAHO (10) in the run that might be enough to see him home. DANGER: TENDAHO (10) is in great form for Geoff Webster and is in search of his fifth win on the trot after strong victories at his past four, including the Central Victorian Trotting Championship Final at Charlton three back. He is giving KATMANDONNY (4) a 20m head start here and it won't be easy for him but he is certainly going well enough to overcome that hurdle. OTHERS: BUNTYS BASS (6) and CHIPMONT LAD (7) are the upsets with place claims going to BUTTON BRIGADE (9), PARIS ROSE (5) and ARCTIC WOLF (3). RATINGS: 4/ 10/ 6,7/ 9,5,3/ 1/ 2/ 8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,10/ 4,6,7,10/ 3,4,5,6,7,9,10 ($35 gets you 100%) Q1 Q2 Q3 FOR MORE DETAILED FORM GO TO - www.superracing.com.au 7 Regal Sulkies Pace 9.30 1609m. $5000.

He begins well and whether in front, or just off the pace he will get his chance to break through. DANGER: GOSH HEZA REBEL (10) is another who will appreciate this class of horse after competing at Tontine level at his past two behind Steam Washed and Magical Telf and with the right run into it from the rear he should be a factor. OTHERS: KALAHARI KING (4) found Magical Telf much too good form him at Terang in a heat of the Tontine last time but this looks more suitable and he has a strong each way chance along with MAJOR COMMAND (9) and JOHNNY TEE (11). LOMBO HALLMARK (8), BLISSFULL KISSES (5) and ALL HONOUR (6) aren't hopeless either. RATINGS:1/10/4/9/11/8/5/6/3/2/7 SUGGESTED BET: LE RAPIDE (1) each way 8 Function Room For Hire 2YO 10.00 1609m. $5000. 2yo Trotters 2T0 Only RBD Stand 1 EDGE HILL P G Manning Greg Sugars Fr 6.00 2 FIRE TO RAIN A T McDonough Allan McDonough Fr 4.00 3 ZARAH GEE W R Potter Chris Alford Fr 10.00 4 IM PRINCESS SOPHIE D M O'Brien Leroy O'Brien (C) Fr J3.50 5 ZHARIS IDOL D Jack David Jack Fr 7.00 6 IM STATELY D Jack Michael Bellman Fr 8.00 7 GLENFERRIE DASH G Walker Geoff Walker Fr 4.50 TOP PICK: This is the first 2YO trotter's race of the season and they are always difficult to sort out but IM PRINCESS SOPHIE (4) looks hardest to beat. She has won two recent trials at Maryborough, one from the stand, the other from the mobile and shows promise. DANGER: FIRE TO RAIN (2) has been placed in 3 trials at Melton in the past month and should go close if she brings that kind of form to the races tonight. OTHERS: GLENFERRIE DASH (7) is well-bred and has been trialling OK at Melton and on this circuit lately so include her in winning thoughts. EDGE HILL (1) didn't do a great deal in her only trial appearance at Ararat last month but she is with Peter Manning so it would pay to keep her safe. ZHARIS IDOL (5) and IM STATELY (6) finished second and third respectively at their latest trial runs at Bendigo back in mid-January and appear to have some talent along with ZARAH GEE (3) who ran third in a Kilmore workout 11 days ago.

DANGER: ITSALLABOUTEX (4) was beaten a long way into fourth spot behind Major Calipso here last start but that was in a much stronger race than what he contests here and from the reasonable draw he is the obvious threat to OUR SUMMER WIND (7). DANGER: ITSALLABOUTEX (4) was beaten a long way into fourth spot behind Major Calipso here last start but that was in a much stronger race than what he contests here and from the reasonable draw he is the obvious threat to OUR SUMMER WIND (7). OTHERS: SON OF A STAR (2) and LOTTA TOP (1) will be prominent throughout and are given place hopes with the remaining runners likely to struggle.
