Dizzy Success will be mighty hard to beat in the opener at Hawkesbury.
Hawkesbury R1 No.2 - DIZZY SUCCESS (NAP)
I black-booked this horse after his debut at Muswellbrook two and a half weeks ago over 1000m when he completely bombed the start, over-raced ferociously and still only managed to finish a length off them after wobbling all over the place down the straight. Gets to the 1200m which will suit and fancy he'll be mentally much better for the experience on debut, will again get back but gee he looks mighty hard to beat!

Kyneton R3 No.7 - BIRKDALE
Promising colt that debuted back in July at Sale over 1208m in a race that rated through the roof comparatively to three other 2yo races on the day (plenty of smart horses too!), he was only 2 lengths off the winner (despite being wide/no-cover) and was immediately spelled. Has jumped-out and trialled up well (ran very slick time in recent Cranbourne trial) for his return and keen this lacks some depth, can sit midfield/cover in transit and be too classy for them here.

Moonee Valley R4 No.2 - STAR IMPULSE
This mare absolutely flew fresh at the Valley over 1200m three weeks ago and was pretty stiff not to get the money, was held-up rounding the bend and once into daylight copped a severe check with 100m remaining. She still managed to flatten out well and hit the line with a head of steam. Drops back in grade and draws for a lovely run again stalking the speed, shes a winner second-up and all she'll need is some luck to be saluting.

Sunshine Coast R5 No.5 - JUSTTHEWAYYOUARE (each-way)
Former Victorian having his first start up north with Chris Munce, rolls around at an enormous price here which I think offers plenty of value. Has been a winner fresh in the past over 1100m so i've got no doubt he has the ability to sprint with them in a race like this, should get a charmed run (either leading or one-out/one-back) from gate 5 and has form around some genuine Saturday horses in Melbourne. Happy to spec him at such a huge quote.
