Geelong R1 No.1 - GEE ONE EXPRESS
Went super closing off an average tempo at Sale three weeks ago over the 1700m, ran through the line like he'll eat 2200m and this race in terms of quality is certainly a 'drop in grade'. Goes close to finding his peak today and there does look to be a genuine rolling tempo on paper which will no doubt suit. If Beriman can get active at the 600m/clear running this horse will be winning.

Geelong R6 No.9 - JINX
Mare in great form, she is flying and was unlucky not to win in better company three weeks ago here over the 1100m, reckon the inside draw will be of great benefit today - she can can take closer order and only needs a touch of luck upon straightening to come home over the top late. Has a scintillating final 200m sprint on her and flys on the pro-ride, rates good enough to win this!

Geelong R7 No.4 - SETTE BELLO
Promising galloper returns fresh today after a good debut prep earlier this year, won a very slick maiden second-up at Mornington (race rated!) over 1000m before not going a yard three weeks later on a bog track. Been given time to mature/develop and recent jumpout at Flemington 27/5 over 800m was good, jumped nicely and was basically put in a headlock for the entire heat. Reckon from the good draw he could land on the bunny and be a bit too slick for them.

Gosford R3 No.3 - SHES ON TARGET
Surprised she's still a maiden this filly, debut prep was actually quite good (amongst slick company) late last year. We saw her run terrifically (got within 1.5 lengths) in what was a very hot maiden at Canterbury over 1100m in December, winner has since started favourite in G3 company and runner-up went close in a $400,000 Scone Guineas - those are terrific form-lines for a race of this nature and have liked her two trials leading up to her return. Most recent of which at Rosehill 10/6 was rather impressive.

Gosford R8 No.4 - THREE HATS
Thought his win on debut at Hawkesbury over the 1000m three weeks ago was quite good, jumped well and went to work on-speed (small field) and still remained far too good for them throughout. Reckon 58.17 overall time is actually quite smart considering the usual lack of tempo in races of that nature, it was comparable to the BM75 later in the day so fancy there might be some merit to it and if anything if he improves second-up to the 1100m he very well may prove again hard to hold out (monitor pattern).
