R1 Dick & Anne Box VicBred Platinum Country Series A 2nd Heat (MS) | 2180m 6:30pm

Pretty weak race where Katsina comes out on top despite having only placed at four of its 24 starts. I’m happy to base my judgement on its third at Stawell two starts ago. Leica Patrick has been in the market at it’s four starts and has been consistent having run second, third or 4th. Gets a wide draw here but is in with a show. Jimmy Daniel is first up for over four years but has trialled well and won’t have to be much good to win here. Keayang Rockstar can show pace and is a knockout at odds.

R2 Gorge Chocolates Claiming Pace (MS) | 2180m | 7:02pm

The claimers go around here and usually each race has a different winner. Electric Ollie is nearing a win having been runner up at its last two occasions and Major Laugh was a good 2nd in a claimer last week after another good 2nd in this class three starts ago. Ubringthedrinks has lost its form. Hellovanite was a good 2nd to Jaccka Lonny last time – even race.

R3 Bob & Pat Conroy Trot (MS) | 2180| 7:30pm

Gus An Maori is inconsistent, but when he fires he does it in style. Has won 4/9 but never run a place. Won a good 3yo race (beating the smart Aldebaran Deebee) by 23m at Melton two starts ago then started $2.20 favourite but broke and that was that. Miss Fisher has won 2/19 and when right is good but sixth was her best effort in her last five starts. Eureka Encounter should’ve won a few starts back and is always around the money.

R4 The Maddens Lawyers Green Jug (MS) | 2180m | 8:00pm

Small but quality field where Marg Lee holds the aces here. Keayang Mercedes was involved in a speed battle last time at Melton when $2.20 favourite in the 25k Empire Silver. No shock to see it fade to sixth. Keayang Squizzy won the Empire Bronze two starts ago then beat a good field at Stawell last time from an awkward draw. Keayang Storm’s form has tapered a touch but that has been in better races. Oasis Dream finally broke through two starts ago then was a good third last time.

R5 I W McCallum Memorial 3yo Pace (MS) | 2180m | 8:30pm

Truth And Courage has been good at its past two winning from a bad draw at Ararat and then from a similar gate ran a HFNK second. Major Mosby took advantage of the sprint lane at Hamilton to win. Artful Christian looks to be an improver – won well at Maryborough last time. All Perfection has been in the market at both starts but a third has been its best effort.

R6 Warrnambool Hydraulics VicBred Pace (MS) | 2180m | 9:00pm

Eljulio is down in class here – midfield finishes in better races mean if he’s ever going to break through again then tonight’s the night. The inside three can all show gate speed but are ‘no stars’. Jerry Monster flew home last time but that was its first glimpse of form for a while. Classic Shark would be favourite if it drew the front line and Joelfoal is first up for six months – showed ability when last in work.

R7 Inroad Pace (MS) | 1680m | 9:30pm

Looks Life Heaven will dominate this race, and is too good for these. First up from a spell was second to Niki No No in the Empire Bronze. Has won 7/28 and is a nice mare. Australian Bite is a place chance from the draw as is the speedy Gnotuk.
