Geelong R3 No.1 - BARMAID FROM WYE
Strikes the perfect race to see her break the duck, made good ground in a race dominated by leaders here 10 days ago over the 1300m, winner just pinched a break and she was unable to reel him in but did chase hard. Reckon the wide draw will force them to be positive early, if she can find a spot at the leaders girth mid-race she'll kick clear at the bend and be too good.
Barmaid From Wye - 1pt @ 1.90
Geelong R5 No.6 - ON WINGS (x2 NAP)
has been terrific in both runs returning this prep, latest he made good ground through the line at Warrnambool on a bottomless track (winner just missed again since). Clearly the step to 1900m will suit and he draws perfectly in gate 2, went to 2000m last prep at Mornington and won by an ever increasing 4 lengths in good time/style, nice horse worth following!
On WIngs - 2pt @ 2.80
Geelong R7 No.4 - TEA TREE GULLY
Could be fairly smart, win on debut over the 1000m at Bendigo three weeks ago was slick (good time!), interesting the wide draw - shouldn't pose too much of a problem as I expect him to again be positive early and possible sit leaders girth. If he can produce a similar rating to his win on debut (or improve) he'll be winning.
Tea Tree Gully - 1pt @ 2.80
Geelong R8 No.13 - SHUFETISH
Drops 2kgs at the weights for a 0.5 length defeat here 10 days ago, she did plenty of work on that occasion and it looks as if this doesn't have anywhere near the speed on paper. If she can find the fence she'll take plenty of catching, her latest effort rated well enough to win this.
Shufetish - 1pt @ 3.10
