Race 1. (11:20) Let’s Make It Grand Maiden Hurdle (3200m)
#6 – Portland Jimmy @ $2.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Portland Jimmy comes off two trial wins and that should have him in good order to win his maiden hurdle.
The eight-year-old didn’t fire in a tough race at Yarra Glen last time out, but he’s facing much slower thoroughbreds over this jumps race.
His jumping future looks bright and we expect his odds to firm to around $1.80 on race day, so lock in the value.
Race 3. (12:40) G Taylor Memorial Maiden Hurdle (3200m)
#4 – Killourney @ $1.95 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Killourney is another runner coming off a jumps trial win and his flat form hasn’t been too bad this season.
The six-year-old son of Zoffany finished fourth at Flemington behind Steel Price, which followed a second placing at Mt Gambier.
He should enjoy running over this distance and we’re not surprised by the odds.
Race 6. (14:20) Scotty Stewart Brierly Steeplechase (3450m)
#4 – Valac @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Valac is another rising star of the jumping circuit after winning three of his four starts over the jumps.
The Hayes-trained son of Dark Angel scored a narrow win at Pakenham last time out and it was a good way to start his campaign.
He won his only start at Warrnambool and his flat speed often gives him an advantage on the straight, so we’re putting him on top in the feature.
Race 8. (15:30) Magic Millions National Sale Handicap (1700m)
#2 – Bermadez @ $3.40 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Bermadez is a real talent on his day and we’re hoping he bounces back after a tough effort at Caulfield.
The five-year-old gelding finished 14th behind Ayrton, but he was only 5.8 lengths behind the winner, so it wasn’t a complete flop.
His win at Flemington three back was superb and if that form is brought to the table, he should be winning against this company.
Race 1. (13:30) Paul Murray Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Boomsong @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Boomsong looked good when running second on debut at Warwick Farm before disappointing at Canterbury last start.
The three-year-old gelding comes off a trial placing at Randwick and that should top him off nicely for this run on Tuesday.
Punters get fair odds and we fancy his chances of success.
Race 3. (14:45) Gwenda Markwell C1 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Espirito @ $4.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Espirito started his career with back-to-back placings before breaking through for his maiden win at Kembla Grange.
The three-year-old gelding defeated only a field of four runners, but he scored by 6.8 lengths in an easy romp.
It could be a sign of things to come and the heavy track holds no fears.
Race 5. (15:55) Nostril Golf Tour Maiden (1400m)
#8 – Poetic Drama @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Poetic Drama is getting close to breaking through after three consecutive fourth placings and she gets his best chance now.
The Hawkes-trained filly by Prosir has been getting back and running on well, so she should settle closer to the pace this time around.
It’s not a strong field and she should be right in contention.
Race 6. (16:35) Kerry Parker BM64 (1400m)
#3 – Never Cry @ $3.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Never Cry won two starts back at Hawkesbury on a heavy surface before finishing fifth at Newcastle on a good track.
Getting back to wet conditions could be the catalyst for another win and some of his best form has come at the distance.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
