The midweek racing scene had moved to the country track of BENDIGO this week, our ‘Nursery of Champions’. Let’s see if we can’t get you some winning horses to build up the bank for the weekends activities!

BENDIGO – AUS A

RACE 5 - CENTREBET SHOWCASE HANDICAP 2400m $30,000 (AUS)

HEY BIG BENDER was backed heavy last time he ran, he had a tough run in that race and he only faded late, he ran well a few runs ago at 2200m. MUSEE MARKET was game on-pace in that same race at Geelong (It was classified as Metro meeting) and the race was set-up for swoopers. ROCK FLYER was rock solid there. He has the most upside coming into this race. ARANDOM is in the mix for sure. SACRED DREAM is next choice but the wins are spaced for this guy.

SELECTIONS – HEY BIG BENDER / ROCK FLYER / ARANDOM

RACE 6 - FIRST LIGHT RACING SHOWCASE HANDICAP 1100m $30,000 (AUS)

HILL SPY has a big 62kg on his back but is the class here, for mine, he just about wins with luck at his latest city start despite the leader bias that day. WEST AFRICA did nothing fresh but there were excuses, we have to give him another chance here before we desert him. DEL PRADO resumes and was sound fresh last prep in a pretty competitive maiden, then went on to win 2nd-up. ALBERTI won BM70 latest when sharply back in trip on a genuine wet track, drying ground against but is in this to a certain extent. ZUPBERB on the other hand wants it dry to my eye. I'M READY FOR THIS & SONATA are both capable types who can also figure in this race.

SELECTIONS – HILL SPY / WEST AFRICA / DEL PRADO

RACE 7 - JAYCO SHOWCASE HANDICAP 1300m $30,000 (AUS)

Hard race to read speed wise! ROYAL ISLAND was a good 2nd fresh (winner then backed off map & won in town) and thrashed SUCH HOPE into 3rd before strong win last time with 60kg in a $50k feature race! SUCH HOPE then won and does have significant weight swing here so is definitely going to be a live danger. AWESOME BRO looked so ready to win until that awful fail last time, assume all was not well there and will allow him another opportunity here today. INFINITE ENERGY has not won for three preps now but has good 3rd-up pattern to him and drawn out on big track is ideal if he is going to break his run of outs. SMOKEN CASH & EL DIVINE will be others who may present a case here today.

SELECTIONS – ROYAL ISLAND / SUCH HOPE / INFINITE ENERGY
