Race 1. (13:15) Barry Dawes Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Russian Standard @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Russian Standard ended last campaign with back-to-back placings and he could fire up in a fresh state.
The Mark Newnham-trained three-year-old finished second on this track as a $1.50 favourite last start, but punters should stick with him.
He comes off a four-length trial win at Randwick, which is excellent form.
Race 3. (14:25) Karen Gillis Maiden (1300m)
#12 – Stalking @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stalking hasn’t too far away in some hot fields in Melbourne, so reverting to midweek company at Kembla Grange bodes well.
The three-year-old filly finished behind Willowy, Daisies and Sunfall last preparation in an attempt to run in the Oaks.
We expect her to be putting this field to the sword, so the $3.40 is a generous price.
Race 5. (15:40) Justin Sheehan Maiden (1500m)
#1 – Stormy Legend @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off consecutive placings is Stormy Legend, who was only a half-length behind the winner at Newcastle last start.
The four-year-old is getting close to a win and there has been solid confidence in betting markets, so he’s worth following.
Barrier two is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 7. (16:50) Tara O’Brien Conditional BM68 (1400m)
#1 – Dream Runner @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dream Runner is a consistent five-year-old who owns four wins and six placings from 15 starts, which is a nice record.
The son of Wilful Default has been running in Highway Handicap races in town, so that form bodes well for this level of racing.
1.5kg comes off his back and the $5.50 available is worth taking before it drops.
Race 1. (13:30) Split n Stawell Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Fatale Bliss @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fatale Bliss was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner on debut at Stawell and having experience on the track helps.
The mare by Rubick had solid betting support on debut at $3, so we’re not surprised by the shorter odds here.
The odds are skinny but she’s worth including in multi bets.
Race 4. (15:00) Ecycle Solutions Maiden (1600m)
#5 – Martini Crusader @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Martini Crusader is an improving three-year-old who finished ninth on debut but bounced back with a fifth at Donald.
The son of Pride of Dubai was three lengths behind the winner, but they don’t often take long to break through from the Maher/Eustace stable.
Barrier three is ideal so take the odds available.
Race 6. (16:00) Gift Hotel BM58 (1600m)
#1 – Oceanography @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The son of Ocean Park needed the fresh up run at Warrnambool and we’re expecting a much better performance on Tuesday.
He was 6.6 lengths behind the winner over 1400m, so rising to the mile helps and he always improves with a run under his belt.
He’s classy at best and the midweek field shouldn’t pose too many problems.
Race 8. (17:00) Hewitt Saddlery BM58 (1300m)
#3 – Signor Fangio @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to improve after two runs this preparation is Signor Fangio, who kicked off his campaign with a seventh at Flemington.
The son of Contributer was solid at Benalla last time out, and although he has taken some time to mature this preparation, he looks ready to win.
Barrier 12 is the only negative, but expect another tidy effort.
