Race 4: BM94 HANDICAP 1000m
MOSMAN GORGE (4) has been racing consistently of late as evidence by a 1.5L 5th in The Warra 1000m behind ELEVEN ELEVEN and a close 2nd to STREETCAR STRANGER in the listed Adams Stakes 1000m at Caulfield last start. Will settle back off what looks a good tempo and with race fitness on his side and the addition of Tommy Berry to ride he looks a nice each way play at $19.
MALKOVICH (1) has been costly conveyance, running 2nd at his last 4 starts. Only 1 trial into this, drawn the widest barrier and with an impost of 62.5kgs to carry make this a tough task. He usually does better at his 2nd run in a prep, but his lead up trial was very good. KALLOS (3) is a 3 year old up against older horses here and isn’t suited at the weights but trialed ok behind LOST AND RUNNING and the team must have an opinion of him to up against some smarter older horses.

Race 10: GARDENIA HANDICAP 1600m
THROUGH THE CRACKS (8) finished 0.98L 2nd to SPEICAL REWARD in the Listed Carrington Stakes over 1400m last start. Though he hasn’t won at this distance as yet, in his only start over the distance he finished 0.7L 4th in a very fast run G2 Villiers Stakes behind GREYSFUL GLAMOUR, BEST OF DAYS and CRIADERAS which reads well for a race like this. He should be able to get a nice run just worse than midfield and be steaming home hard for Rachel King who sticks.
FROSTY ROCKS (4) was a gallant 0.3L 4th last start behind ELEVEN ELEVEN In The Magic Millions Cup over 1400m after leading at a break neck speed. Rises a bit in weight here and his last start rider Rachel King sticks with rival THROUGH THE CRACKS. That said she does get the gun Vic jock in Jamie Kah who is in town for day. 1600m maybe as far he wants but if he gets an uncontested lead here, they may not be able to catch him. NO COMPROMISE (9) was good first up finishing a length 3rd behind SPECIAL REWARD and THROUGH THE CRACKS in the Listed Carrington. He is 2nd up now and may just be in need of this but J Mac takes over and he will be strong late.
(8) THROUGH THE CRACKS: 0.5 units win @ $3.80
