Race 1: BM100 HANDICAP 2040M

D’AGUILAR (1) was a game 4th last start behind HEZASHOCKER and MANKAYAN over this distance in open class. He was ridden upside down there but in this small field, he will likely sit 2 wide in the third pair allowing him every chance to storm over the top of them. He has a win at the track and is 4 from 6 on soft tracks making him the one to beat.


NOT USUAL GLORIOUS (2) was a good on speed winner last start over 1700 at Caulfield and won the Casterton cup 2000m the start prior. He should be able to roll to the front and dictate the speed again here with Ollie aboard. Big step up in class now but will get his chance. MOHICAN HEIGHTS (3) looks the best of the rest as he finished 1.25L behind HEZASHOCKER last start but he might still need this run and he appears to be at his best on top of the ground.

Betting Approach:

(1) D’AGUILAR: $3.40 


ALPHA ONE (1) has won his 2 runs this prep both on soft ground. First go Melbourne way but he is trained by the in-form Snowden camp and will be ridden on speed from a soft draw. He looks every chance of making it 3 in a row.


FISSION (3) won his first start at Bendigo in nice fashion and has the blinkers on first time here for this race suggesting the team have him wound up for this assignment. He’s drawn well and will be in this for a long way. KEYSBOROUGH (7) is out of an astute training camp and with Willo jumping aboard a first up sting could be on the cards…watch the market closely for any evidence.  

Betting Approach:

(1) ALPHA ONE: $3.10
