When you’ve got horse named after a jockey and the hoop just happens to be riding the horse you’ve got to have something on while Michael Dee shapes as the hoop to follow for the day on the Pakenham synthetic surface.
R3 No. 5 $3.90
Ready to win third-up on the Pakenham Synthetic after back-to-back placings. Drawn to get a favourable run and should be finishing off hard.
R1 No. 1 $2
In the right stable to show up on debut, especially after being given time to mature following a trial at Warwick Farm last October. Watch the market closely.
R6 No. 1 $4.20
Nice maiden win at Geelong first-up then found the rise to benchmark 64 a step too far too soon. Drops back to 58 grade and drawn to figure. Can bounce back.
R4 No. 5 $15
Craig ‘Froggy’ Newitt riding a horse named Froggy is worth a small play each-way for the story alone. Newitt is in great form and Luke Oliver stable has a knack of placing the right horses on the all-weather tracks.
A PINCH OF LUCK
R8 No. 10 $19
Showed promise early doors and thrown in the deep end against better calibre opposition. Form OK bar last start at Sandown. Forgive?
Among the most successful jockeys at the meeting, as a five-time Group 1 winner, yet grossly underrated. A top horseman with a strong book of rides.
TESTA ROCK (R1 No. 11 $7), ALL OR NOTHIN’ (R2 No. 1 $2.40), ALL TOO TOUGH (R3 No. 1 $8.50), ALOVELYBROWNHORSE (R6 No. 6 $3.40) and PEIDRA (R8 No. 3 $17).
