Race 1. (12:35) Toyota Forklifts C3 Handicap (1000m)

#5 – Divine Miss @ $3.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Divine Miss owns two wins and three placings from five starts, so the three-year-old filly has yet to run a bad race.

The daughter of Headwater comes off a second placing at Canberra before being primed with a trial placing, so the form reads well.

This race looks ideal and punters get value odds.

Race 3. (13:50) Gallagher Insurance Brokers C1 (1200m)

#3 – Our Last Cash @ $3.70 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

The four-year-old gelding scored a win at Wagga last start by four lengths and he’s good enough to go on with the job.

He is a son of Magnus who struggled in good conditions prior, but he appears to have grown another leg in the wet.

He’s worth following and punters should be happy with the $3.70 available.

Race 5. (15:05) JRC Electrical Services BM74 (1600m)

#4 – Publicist @ $4.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Publicist will need to show his class from barrier 15, but the Waterhouse/Bott-trained runner will likely head forward.

The three-year-old gelding didn’t fire at Canterbury last time out but he comes off a trial win at Randwick and that should top him off nicely.

The each-way odds are well worth taking and we have him on top.

Race 7. (16:20) Wagga Cup (2000m)

#10 – Ain’tnodeeldun @ $4.40 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Ain’tnodeeldun finished second behind Grandslam at Caulfield last start and that’s terrific form for the Wagga Cup.

The Freedman-trained four-year-old owns three wins from 10 starts and the son of Dundeel has been facing top-level fields.

He opened at crazy odds of $6.50 and has firmed considerably, which isn’t a surprise given his talent.


Race 2. (18:15) Do It For Dolly Maiden (1000m)

#9 – Nice for What @ $2.45 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Nice for What has yet to win from eight starts, but the Maher/Eustace-trained filly shouldn’t take too much longer.

The three-year-old by Shalaa has finished second three times over this distance and her placing at Ballarat two back is a good form guide.

Drawing barrier two is ideal and we’re happy with the odds.

Race 4. (19:15) Designer Coolroom Maiden (1300m)

#2 – Chart Buster @ $3.60 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Chart Buster has improved with every run this preparation and the four-year-old is the leading chance.

The Hayes-trained son of Akeed Mofeed finished second at Benalla last time out and we expect that form to hold up well enough.

Barrier 11 isn’t ideal but he would have been much shorter in the betting had he drawn an inside barrier, so he’s worth the risk.

Race 6. (20:15) Tab Long May We Play BM64 (1600m)

#4 – Prince of Rome @ $3.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Prince of Rome was too good for them at Werribee last start as an odds-on chance, so getting $3.50 is a value price.

The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding looks to have a bright future and the son of Snitzel is bred to be better than average.

He should lead and be tough to run down.

Race 8. (21:15) Silks Cranbourne BM64 (1200m)

#11 – Head First @ $2.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes

Head First is a three-year-old filly who drops in grade after running against open-class opposition at Caulfield.

The daughter of Headwater had looked good when running close when fifth at Sandown and anything close to that effort is good enough.

She has ability and she won’t stay in this grade for very long.
