REDADAN (M S Minervini) 8g By Akhadan – Flashy Hit (58:6-6-3): Overcame blocked run to score nose win (55.5) The Chunkster, Altivo 1100m M’ville (86) Nov 24, then ran nose, 2 len 3rd (55.5) Tears ‘n’ Triumph, Danzylum 1400m C’field (82) Dec 8. Has come back a much better horse but still not good enough for this.

RACE SEVEN

Good galloper who is drawn well and has a class edge on these. Rates highly.

JIM’S PARTY (Stephen Theodore) 6g By Akhadan – Pitapat’s Party (30:8-7-3): Had a cosy run before scoring 34 len win (54.5) Merlot Now, Exalted Ego 1800m M’ville Challenge Stks Nov 24 before running 12 len, 112 len 3rd (57.5) Sharkbite, Poised To Win 1700m F’ton Open Hcp dead trk Dec 15. Honest gelding who ran well in strong race last start. Go well again.

KING JOHANNES (D C Harrison) 6g By Cape Cross – Tivoli Hero (31:6-8-5): Started fav but could only manage 214 len 4th (56.5) Sharkbite 1700m F’ton Open Hcp dead trk Dec 15 before running home nicely for 34 len 2nd (54.5) Sharkbite 1700m C’field Lord Stks Dec 26. Appears to be looking for this distance now and formline is strong. Genuine chance.

HOME SWEET (Bruce & Jean Purcell) 6g By Ladoni – Wiora Terricks (22:6-4-2): Needed the run when first up 512 len 7th (54.0) Mr Baritone 1500m Sandown-Hillside Open Hcp Nov 24, then ran 312 len 6th (58.0) Prior Knight 1900m Traralgon Latrobe Vly Cup Dec 9. Fitter for two runs back but may still be one run short.

ITSTHEONE (D L Freedman) 5g By Istidaad – Miss Seymour (15:4-5-1): Held ground when 112 len 4th (54.0) Mr Baritone 1500m Sandown- Hillside Open Hcp Nov 24, then well placed to score nk win (55.0) Drizzle, Attrition 1800m Sandown-Hillside (89) heavy trk Dec 22. Progressive gelding who is a bit of a concern at this distance. Despite this will be competitive.

DRIZZLE (Gary Sherer) 6g By Torrential – Vain Hope (42:5-12-9): Led them up and held on ok for hd, 114 len 3rd (55.0) Sea Battle, Newgrange 1600m C’field (89) Dec 8, then ran nk 2nd (55.0) Itstheone 1800m Sandown-Hillside (89) heavy trk Dec 22. Rarely runs a bad race and placed at all three runs this trip. Must include.

VENGO (R E Laing) 6g By Zabeel – Lambert Miss (39:5-6-3): Disappointed for a run when 134 len 4th (55.0) Gallopin 2040m M Valley (89) Dec 1 before 20 len last (53.5) Redondo Beach 2500m F’ton Open Hcp dead trk Dec 15. Poor effort last start and is mixing form. Hard to have with any confidence.

PRIDE OF WESTBURY (D T O’Brien) 5g By Octagonal – Taittinger (22:3-3-1): Settled back and had no impact when 914 len 8th (55.5) Moonloushe 1600m M Valley (82) dead trk Nov 23, then disappointed for a run but sprinted quickly to score 12 nk win (54.5) Attrition, Speedymac 1700m C’field Rst0 Hcp Dec 12. This has much more depth and place looks best.

TALL TREES (D J Cave) 6g By Fraar – Zerbinetta (55:4-10-6): Only beat one home when 734 len 7th (52.0) China Causeway 2000m Kyneton (78) heavy trk Dec 3 before running 12 len, 114 len 3rd (53.0) Prior Knight, Lord Erin 1900m Traralgon Latrobe Vly Cup Dec 9. Limited gelding who is not up to this.

Disappointing at this track last start. May struggle to run a strong 1600m here and best taken on trust.

SENSATIONAL TOY (Luke Oliver) 7m By Toy Pindarri – Hot Sensation (41:9-3-6): Fought on gamely for nk, lg nk 3rd (55.0) Miss Gundowring, Hurl 1440m C’field M (89) Dec 12, then backed up within 10 days to score 212 len win (57.0) Vintrack, Kinka Rhode 1400m Sandown-Hillside M Hcp heavy trk Dec 22. Absolutely flying this campaign and should be competitive particularly if its wet.

LACEY UNDERALL (Dan O’Sullivan) 5m By Desert Sun – Flirted (36:4-3-4): Well beaten 1114 len 8th (54.0) Zavite 2520m F’ton Queen Elizabeth Nov 10 and 734 len 9th (54.0) Captious 2400m Bendigo Bendigo Cup Nov 14. Since had a let-up. Better suited over further.

FUJI FANTASY (E V Musgrove) 4m By Fuji Kiseki – Flight Of Fantasy (23:3-1-2): Settled back and never got into it when 16 len last (61.0) Yappa 1107m Geelong C3 dead trk Dec 2 before running 634 len 8th (56.0) Miss Gundowring 1440m C’field M (89) Dec 12. Two runs back have been uninspiring and better suited over longer.

COLLODI (M C Kent) 4m By Testa Rossa – Keshiki (17:2-3-2): Tried hard with 2 len 2nd (53.5) Lectrice 1800m C’field M Hcp dead trk Dec 8 before well beaten 834 len 7th (55.0) Kindrate 1600m Sandown-Hillside M (82) heavy trk Dec 22. Has been costly to punters but best win was at this track. Include.

Appears to have come back a better filly and has more scope than some of these. Don’t discard.

PINTAKA (P G Moody) 4m By Pins – Funny Features (22:2-4-0): Caught in no man’s land but didn’t shirk task 514 len 5th (53.0) Princess Marizza 1600m F’ton Mares dead trk Dec 15 then battling 234 len 6th (57.0) Miss Gundowring 1500m M Valley Mares (82) Dec 29. Capable of better.

KINDRATE (R D Griffiths) 4m By Special Bond – Quick Rate (12:3-4-1): Disappointed for a run but still able to score 34 len win (57.5) King’s Note, Veightjuice 1400m Cranbourne F&M Hcp-62 Dec 9, then recorded 112 len win (53.0) Ladies In Luck, Lunch At Cristi’s 1600m Sandown-Hillside M (82) heavy trk Dec 22. Won 3 of past 4 runs but wide gate is a concern. Consider.

Better suited on firm track and can put value into the multiples.

KINKA RHODE (A W Noonan) 4m By Encosta De Lago – Centennial (11:1-3-1): Had excuses when 134 len 5th (56.0) Sunset Marquis 1400m Ballarat F&M (72) Dec 6 before trying hard with 212 len, 314 len 3rd (54.5) Sensational Toy, Vintrack 1400m Sandown-Hillside M Hcp heavy trk Dec 22.
