Bendigo Quaddie Preview
Race 6: Bendigo Gold Bracelet (1400m)
#2 French Emotion (Chris Waller / Brad Rawiller)
Second-up here, good record this trip, hit line nicely first-up.
#3 Miss Gunpowder (Hayes & Dabernig / Dwayne Dunn)
Had two runs back from spell in Sydney where it hasn’t fired. Does race better this way, can improve from good draw.
#4 Schism (Ciaron Maher / Ben Thompson)
Ran well from wide barrier first-up, gets to right trip now. Can improve dramatically.
#6 Tahanee (Darren Weir / Ben Allen)
First-up here. Ran well first-up last prep and maps well.
#14 Amortentia (Enver Jusufovic / Luke Currie)
Won well second-up at Sandown when leading all the way, should be fully fit here (third-up) and can improve again.
Race 7: Bendigo Golden Mile (1600m)
#3 Amovatio (Chris Waller / Ben Thompson)
No luck last start from inside draw, Draws out here, gets to right trip. Will be getting home hard.
#6 Kiwia (Darren Weir / Brad Rawiller)
Ran nicely first-up. Has run well second-up in past, looks a target race. Can run well.
#7 Lite’n In My Veins (Ciaron Maher / Jamie Mott)
Won past two in Adelaide. Racing well and maps well here.
#8 Midterm (Liam Howley / Jake Noonan)
First-up here for Williams. Most form over further, but stable has won this race first-up before… so keep onside.
#16 Sword of Light (Ellerton & Zahra / Damien Thornton)
Comes here fourth-up from spell. Should be ready to run to best. Has solid record this trip.
#19 Tradesman (Darren Weir / Ben Allen)
Ran well hitting the line hard in first Victorian start for Weir. Looks good chance to improve second-up if it gets a start.
Race 8: Bendigo Guineas (1400m)
#5 Holbien (Steve Richards / Jordan Childs)
Terrific effort leading all the way on pace last start. Only needs to hold that rating to be the horse to beat here.
#9 Black Sail (Ciaron Maher / Ben Thompson)
Had a little freshen-up since Group 1 race. Better suited back in grade here. Can improve.
#10 Barbeque (James Cummings / Daniel Stackhouse)
Ran well two starts ago in high-rating race, then not suited last start at Mornington. Can bounce back here.
#13 Tavistock Abbey (Anthony Freedman / Jake Noonan)
Resumes here. Ran well in spring over slightly further but can feature if forward here.
#16 So Far Sokool (Archie Alexander / Nikita Beriman)
Ran okay when resuming off freshen-up. Should be fitter here and can run to best.
Race 9: BM90 Handicap (1400m)
#5 King’s Command (Leon & Troy Corstens / Ben Thompson)
Won past two starts. Racing well and maps to get across from wide barrier.
#6 Leodoro (Michael Kent / Ethan Brown)
Hit the line nicely when resuming off slight freshen-up. Comes to 1400m which looks like an advantage. Will be getting home hard.
#10 Land of Plenty (Darren Weir / Ben Allen)
Not suited first-up for new trainer. Better suited over longer trip here. Has good rating figures but poor winning strike-rate.
#13 Rich Luck (Matt Laurie / Luke Currie)
Ran nicely first-up when resuming from long spell. Should strip fitter here. Maps to sit handy from better draw.
#14 Thelburg (John Sadler / Chris Caserta)
On quick back-up from last start where it worked a bit too hard first-up. Looks a softer map here and can improve.
#16 My Paisann (Lisa Enright / Jessica Eaton)
Covered plenty of extra ground first-up. Has reasonable record this trip. Gets inexperienced jockey but drops significantly in weight.
