Our blackbookers to follow from racing on July 30 with the team assembling their runners to follow from Belmont, Eagle Farm, Moonee Valley, Morphettville & Rosehill.


Race 3 - Kelvinater (third): Was able to lead when winning on debut and certainly lost no fans in this follow up performance. Taken wider on the home turn, he was left with plenty to do from the rear in a muddling affair, yet found the line strongly and with a low draw, is your likely winner here. The first three were clearing out from the rest of the field.

Race 8 - Forever Dreaming (second): Take nothing away from the winner (Probity), who spotted them a start, but suspect there's plenty of improvement with this mare, who was first-up on a Heavy 9 off just one trial. Continued to surge despite a wide run and nothing taking her into it. Is Class 1 eligible and with a rating of 63, there's easier options around.


Race 5 - Tilianam (second): Sitting outside the leader, this Savabeel filly showed some guts to fight out the finish, putting a space on third place and being the only horse to stick on who raced on the speed. She was tested over further two back and was a winner over 1200m three-back, so this race showed that 1200m is her ideal distance if she is going to race to her optimum.

Race 6 - Go Wandji (first): He has stakes class written all over him and although given that he has a negative racing pattern, he packs an enormous turn-of-foot with rider Larry Cassidy putting it in the same category as Winx’s. That in itself says stakes company is just around the corner and maybe even a Victorian spring if he keeps improving.


Race 3 - Va Via (third): A race that was dominated on the speed, this filly did a great job to pick her runs and close off with the fastest last 200m of the day. The 955m was always going to be the question as she is going to get further, but it was encouraging to see her attack the line. A three-year-old fillies race next start over 1100m-1200m would see her fight out the finish.

Race 7 - Prix De Turn (fourth): Loved the run from this colt who took out the Group Two Alister Clark Stakes last prep. When runs were being made in this event, he was baulked out the back and lost a lot of ground between the 500m and 300m. Given he was first-up at the mile, there is going to be plenty of improvement to come which was indicated in Saturday’s performance.


Race 2 - Pretentious Lass (third): Trainer Greg Lesnikowski has a nice galloper on his hands here, with this now four-year-old backing up an impressive trial win to get home strongly over 1100m on debut. Being a daughter of Lucas Cranach, she should be getting over much more ground in time, so to show a turn-of-foot over a sprint trip was impressive.

Race 5 - Angelic Scent (second): While she didn't prevail via multiple 2000m attempts last prep, it's a distance that this mare is seemingly crying out for and she could just be that bit more dour now as a five-year-old. After failing to go with the winner when the sprint went on, she has picked up again late and was safely holding the rest of the chasers.


Race 2 - Waverider Buoy (third): Along with racing keenly in the middle stages, this filly was flushed out early and covering ground, while with two handy types in Fire And Ice and in-turn Voldemort struggling to finish despite getting a tow, it adds more merit to the runner that did all of the early work. The overall time stacked up well for the class.

Race 9 - Dream Circle (fourth): His second-up run following a poor return was encouraging and he's managed to improve further on that, despite dropping 1400m to 1100m third-up. Was held-up from the 400m to the 200m and forced to the outside, was still last approaching the 100m before letting strongly, with the fastest last 200m of the race.
