 Bendigo Racecourse

Race 1
12.25PM All Seasons Hotel Handicap 1400m
Speed: Even
Most advantaged: Just

4. ROCK FORTHE LADIES
He resumed well winning softly in BM84 grade and the step up here will suit. He won in BM90 grade last prep beating Slate On Edge who went on to win during the Spring Carnival. The even pace will suit, he will sit right behind the speed and should be too good here.
5. HERE TO THERE (NZ)
He has a good record at 1400m and is in form.

6. PILOTE D’ESSAI (GB)
He is unbeaten first up and is an interesting runner here. I am very keen to see him.

MAIN DANGER
2. HENWOOD
He is unbeaten here and has a good 1400m record. This is easier than the Shaftsbury a fortnight ago and being third up he could run a sneaky one.

 

Race 2
1.00pm TROA Handicap 1300m
Speed: Slow
Most advantaged: On pace

1. FAST CASH
His two runs in this prep have been good and he will be hard to beat here. He can sit closer with the slow pace and the claim helps. He ran well behind Durendal who has been group competitive.

3. KING’S COMMAND
He is flying this prep and has been freshened up here. He won well in this grade at his last outing.

8. THINKING OF YOU (NZ)
She has second up form and steps back in grade here. The step up to 1300m will suit.

MAIN DANGER
11. AZEEMA
She is in light here after the claim and is well weighted. She ran well against males last prep from the tail of the field and will be running on strongly again here.

 

 

Race 3
1.35pm Mittys Sprint 1000m
Speed: Fast
Most advantaged: Off pace

7. MAGNA ROSSA
She has a good record at 1000m and is so consistent. She beat Mossin’ Around back in January who was recently competitive in Group 2 company. She is untested on a Soft track.

3. REGAZZO DEL CORSA
His only win has been at 1000m and ran well with big weight at Sandown last prep.  The fast pace should suit him, he should get a nice trail behind the speed.

10. MYSTIC MOON
She is unbeaten this prep after two runs including a win here at the start of the month.

MAIN DANGER
6. BILLABONG BABE
She has a strong record at 1000m including at this level when she won back in November. She trialled well last week.

 

 

Race 4
2.10pm AgVantage VOBIS Gold Rush 1000m
Speed: Not clear
Most advantaged: N/A

6. CREATIVITY
She was good on debut and will find this easier. K.Mallyon stays on board.

1. VALLIANO
The most experienced from this field. He will find this a lot easier than the Blue Diamond.

7. SUMMER GLEN
She was good on debut and the experience will be a benefit to her.

MAIN DANGER
13. SNITZELWAY
I am a fan of the Snitzels. They seem to be quite talented and I liked her trial. 

 

Race 5
2.50pm Jayco Better Loosen Up Trophy 2400m
Speed: Even
Most advantaged: Just behind pace

1. ASSIGN (IRE)
He comes back to 2400m here and that suits. The 2600m may have been a bit of a push last start. He will sit on the pace from a good draw and will take some catching.

11. DANDY GENT
He is flying this prep and ran close to Real Lost last start. He stays down in the weights.

7. WEXFORD TOWN (IRE)
He resumed well and has a strong second up form. He gets the weight advantage over Assign here.

MAIN DANGER
9. WAXING (IRE)
He ran on well last start and with an inside draw can sit closer to the speed here. The even pace will suit that and he gets weight relief here.

 

 

Race 6
3.30pm Catanach’s Jewellers Gold Bracelet 1400m
Speed: Slow
Most advantaged: On pace

4. WRITTEN
She won well at 1400m two starts back but this is tougher. She has been freshened up here, is in form and the slow pace will be an advantage, she will sit on the speed and will take some running down.

1. ATLANTIS DREAM (NZ)
Her 1400m record is strong and she is good in the wet. She won the Group 2 Queen of the South very well last prep.

2. HIJACK HUSSY
She resumed well and the extra distance here is ideal. However she will be doing some work running on from the tail of the field.

MAIN DANGER
5. NOELA’S CHOICE
She ran on well in the Standish in Group 3 company where she wasn’t far off Durendal. She went back to her own sex last start and ran soundly.

 

 

Race 7
4.1pm Bet365 Golden Mile 1600m
Speed: Slow
Most advantaged: On pace

 

8. VELOX (GB)
He has no wins first up but rarely runs badly. He was consistent last prep and gets in light here. He won at 1600m last prep and wasn’t far off them in the Group 3 JRA Cup.

7. GENERAL GROOVE
He has a good record here and will appreciate the step down in class. He wasn’t far off Dan Zephyr two starts back and stays down in the weights here.

3. ABIDEWITHME (NZ)
Forgive her last start where she had an internal bleed. She has a good second up form and two wins to her name at 1600m. She has a strong soft track record.

MAIN DANGER
1. BIG MEMORY
He does have 60kg here but Mark Zahra jumps on who is flying at the moment. Out to 1600m suits, he wasn’t far off Mourinho in Group 2 company last prep.

 

Race 8
4.50pm Rich Enuff at Woodside Park Bendigo Guineas 1400m
Speed: Even
Most advantaged: Just behind pace

 

2. TIVACI
Take out his run in the Australian Guineas where he drew wide. This will suit better as will the even pace. Back to 1400m suits. He beat Palentino (however it was on protest grounds) two runs back at 1400m who ran well in the Alister Clark last night.

3. EL GRECO
He is too consistent to ignore. He resumed okay and will be fitter for this. His 1400m record is good.

14. DAWN OF HOPE
She ran on well when resuming and has won second up though that was her maiden last prep at only her second start.
MAIN DANGER
12. SILENT SEDITION
She won her maiden when resuming a fortnight ago by 4L where she also drew wide and she can go on here. She gets some weight relief. She wasn’t disgraced in Group 2 company last prep.

 

Race 9
5.30pm Italktravel Bendigo Trophy 1100m
Speed: Fast
Most advantaged: Off pace

 

7. RUNSATI
He is in form and will relish the step down in grade. He wasn’t bad in Listed company two starts back then ran okay in a 955m at Moonee Valley. He has a good 1100m record and will appreciate the extra distance.

8. SARDAAJ (NZ)
She runs well first up and this is the lowest grade she’s met in Australia. Mark Zahra is on though she has drawn wide.

4. SOCIETY MAN (NZ)
He won when resuming and has won second up. He rarely runs a bad race and the claim helps. He will be up on the speed.
MAIN DANGER
9. ARMADA
He is unbeaten since being gelded and runs well first up. He has drawn well and the even pace will suit him.
