Bendigo R3 No.7 - SCHEDULE
Was really good on debut when jumping evenly and having to make ground from the tale of the field when caught wide. Leaders walked mid-race in a tempo that was just made for those handier to the speed. Came down the centre of the track in what might have been the inferior going and still managed to perform admirably. Fitter/better for the day at the races and should be very hard to beat.

Bendigo R4 No.2 - FRANKINCENSE
Has been quite good in his two runs at Cranbourne since returning from a spell, thought he might have been something beaten in his most recent outing when he was just held up at a crucial stage when looking to improve. Wide draw today will suit as it forces them to roll forward (should favour those handy) and he will be at his top third-up. Can pinch a break on key rivals and take plenty of catching.

Bendigo R5 No.11 - PERFECT BEAT (x2 NAP)
Went even/ok last start at Wangaratta over the 1400m when they looked to ride her with a sit, didn't really extend like the market expected her too and as a result blinkers go back on. She was beaten by a really smart one in Stormsabrewing (ran slick time/Stakes-class) so I expect that form to stand up. Quite sure she'll be positive early and should find the paint, along with the drop back to 1300m should take some beating.

Bendigo R7 No.13 - FORJO
Could be a very, very nice filly this going off what she did on debut early in 2016 at Geelong. Jumped well, controlled things on speed and was just far too good. They ran very slick time (quicker than the BM70 later in the day) and we've seen the runner-up since come out and run 2 lengths off them in G2 Armanasco! Thats a magnificent reference as to how good she was that day, and with further time to develop physically/mentally she'll be kicking off her prep in a winning way.

Wagga R7 No.7 - ADIRONDACK
Was nothing short of brutal when demolishing his rivals at Caulfield two weeks ago over the 2000m, just went to the front and continued to run away from them when asked to quicken - it was dominance at its best. Drops 5kgs at the weights and will again be handy to the early speed. If he can get a decent enough time of it leading/at girth then I expect he'll take plenty of catching. Is absolutely rock-hard fit and no stranger to getting on his Sydney leg.

Albany R5 No.2 - POTENT SECRET
Flying this horse, has won his last two outings at both the track/trip he's competing at today (fair lead in) and fancy he is still on the up that'll continue to improve with racing. Will punch up from the inside draw in the small field and just really needs some luck to put this lot away, but will more than likely lead. He'd been competitive with better than this earlier this year in town, so to see him string together a couple on the trot back in grade is no shock.
