Race 1: BM100 HANDICAP 2400M
MASERARTIE BAY (5) won the Yarra Valley Cup 1950 last start and has 2 wins at this distance. Bit of a class rise but with a senior jockey back aboard, he should roll forward and be hard to get past again.
THROUGH IRISH EYES (6) finished 3rd last start over 2500 in an open handicap. He boasts a win over 2800m as a 3 year old and a 2nd at this distance. The stable are inform and this guy will be a chance here. STEEL PRINCE (1) is a classy fellow that hasn’t won for 75 weeks and was well beaten in the G1 Aus Cup 2000 last start. He hasn’t quite regained his form since injury and may be ready to do something here in a lesser grade.
(5) MASERARTIE BAY: 0.4 units to win @ $2.50
Race 2: BM84 HANDICAP 2000M
COMMANDER HARRY (4) rattled home well for 3rd in the Mornington Guineas 1600 off the back of a slowly run race. He placed 2nd in the G2 Moonee Valley Vase 2040 last prep behind stable mate FORGOT YOU and looks to have more upside than his rivals here. Linda Meech sticks and the stable are adept with middle distance stayers.
FIVE KINGDOM (1) has been racing consistently of late running in the placings on 3 occasions since an 8 week freshen. Drops in class here but rises in weight. Has not won at the distance as yet but he has placed 4 of 5 goes at it. PLAYOFFS (2) won a BM84 over 2000m 3 starts back and finished an ok 3rd over 2500 last start. Gets in well with the claim and has had a 5 week freshen to drop back 500m in distance for this race. He’s a chance in an open race.
(4) COMMANDER HARRY: 0.4 units win @ $5.00
