Race comments, confidence and ratings across the entire card at Mildura.

Mildura Markets R1 – 7

R1 DNR Logistics Pace | 17906:26pm

Vinnies Mystery will attempt to hold them out from the pole here. I expect Simple Solution and Shakehimrex to also show some speed. Pop The Cork doesn’t usually attempt to lead from this kind of draw but at this track anybody’s guess is as good as mine as to what Josh Duggan will do.

R2 Coca-Cola Amatil 3yo & Older Pace | 21906:57pm

Bulgari Rose led and won here last time while Springfield Shadow had to sit outside it. Expect Bulgari Rose to lead again however this time SS should get a nice trail behind it. Swift Fantasy can show gate speed but may get stuck in the chair. Racey Blue Chip should get a nice three pegs run.

Missus Applebee has good speed and can lead. Expect a more forward showing from Box Lu Cove tonight not only from the good draw but with the driver change to John Caldow. Shark Alert could be the chair horse here with Five Fours being three pegs.

R4 SRS Celebrating 40 Years Pace | 2190| 8:00pm

Royal Icing can show good speed when he wants but may elect to hand up to Ricciardo here and get the last crack at him. Did It Alone is a good stayer and will be in the firing line. Expect Zac Phillips to make an early move with Blurred Lines to put him into the race at some stage.

The Dapper Don Is flying, has good gate speed and should lead again. Beat most of this field last time doing just that. Who knows what Boris will do on Ona Rocky Beach, I don’t even think he knows. Gollahman will improve here with a good driver change and Lets Elope will have to be put into the race early.

Youvegotobelieveit can lead from the better draw here from Finedropofred who might get to the pegs before Yarrara Ben who is a slow starter. Lauper might surge forward with John Caldow on board. Whenmechief will end up four pegs now with the scratching of the seven. Flagbearer might try similar tactics to last week when Jardine pulled off the drive of the year to win.

R7 Ivy Wright Pace | 1790| 9:30pm

Streamliner went back last time from an outside gate in stark contrast to its previous tactics and the tactics are under review as we speak. With Zac Phillips on you can expect him to lead tonight. Taj Bromac usually like to lead too so the pace will be on early.  When the dust settles expect a forward move from Dark Side.
