Selections: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13
HIGH CHURCH (1) had one run at distance last start and disappointed slightly. Can improve here, should be at best now. GREY LION (2) ran well last start in lead-up to this, can hold rating here. LYCURGUS (4) won the lead-up race. Racing consistently, can hold rating here. CHOYSA (5) got out to big lead two starts ago at this distance and won. Held on well last start. Racing consistently, can maintain rating. FALAGO (7) ran okay last start. Has had hurdle trial to bring on for this race. Can improve. LA COURBETTE (8) ran home nicely in lead-up. Stays down in weights here. BIG HAMMER (10) ran well in Adelaide last start. Has been racing well in this distance range. Also had hurdle trial leading in. BENALL (11) is racing well this distance range. Can hold rating. ZILBIYR (13) is building fitness. Last start just got too far back. Should be fit now, second run this distance range. Can improve.
Race 7 - A.R. Creswick Series Final (1200m)
NATURE STRIP (1) had a scintillating performance first start for Weir, producing peak rating. Can run up to four lengths inferior to that and still beat these.
Race 8 - VRC-CRV Winter Championship Series Final (1600m)
Selections: 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 14
MOSS ‘N’ DALE (1) ran well here two starts back at 1400m. Steps to mile where he has a solid record. Has good claims. AMOVATIO (4) hasn’t had much luck this prep. Out to right distance, claims enhanced if can run on. Ran second in this last year. OZI CHOICE (6) had super performance two starts back, running exceptional time. Honest last start. First start at 1600m slight concern. MORTON’S FORK (7) worked home okay last start. Should be ready to fire third up, looks target race. COOL CHAP (8) ran well last start over shorter trip off little freshen-up. Ideally suited this distance. MAGIC CONSOL (10) produced unbelievable effort at Moonee Valley – too good to be true. Rated back to normal here but still has claims. GALAXY RAIDER (14) wasn’t suited past two runs over slightly shorter trips. Ran well here this distance three starts back, solid claims if can run to that figure.
Race 9 - Seppelt Wines Victorian Sprint Series Final (1200m)
Selections: 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9
HELLOVA STREET (1) races well fresh. First run down straight. HUSSON EAGLE (3) pulled up with issue last start. Has good record down straight, can bounce back. CAMDUS (4) won well first-up off long spell then not much luck past two runs. Has been okay down straight before. JUST HIFALUTIN (7) is a good mare who performed well last prep. Solid record this trip, has won over track and distance. DIVINE QUALITY (8) racing consistently. Not suited last start in wrong part of track. PRINCETON SPIRIT (9) has winning ways. First time down straight but has claims. Well graded.
