BELLINI MISS ($3.80 with Bet365) can get the job done in Race 4. The Lindsey Smith-trained galloper has had one start for a runner-up over the 1000m at Warrnambool on debut. That came on February 17 and she settled midfield on a slow tempo before tracking out wide and clocking the second fastest last 200m, missing out behind Bitaequi. She went 6.5 lengths slower than standard benchmark, which are the second best last start figures of any runner in this race. Youngsters from this stable tend to improve with experience and the step up to the 1300m should suit. Declan Bates rides and should give the daughter of Ghibellines a nice time of it from barrier 5.



DRONE STRIKE ($1.75 with Palmerbet) can make it back ti back wins here. The Gavin Bedggood-trained mare stepped out at Kyneton on February 24 in this grade and was allowed to dictate before cruising to a five-length win ahead of Charcoal Annie. She wasn’t far away in harder company prior to that and ran some solid time relative to this grade, going 2.9 lenght slower than standard, which is more than two lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner in this race. That provided the apprentice jockey, Matt Chadwick, his first win and he is a great chance of repeating the dose after drawing perfectly in barrier 3.



AEECEE DOLCE ($3 with Bet365) is another very solid player for the Lindsey Smith stable at Ararat. The four-year-old steps out over the 2000m and was placed in two consectutive BenchMark 64 races before just fading late in that grade being Angel Rock at Moonee Valley on February 18 over the 2040m. That was off a very solid tempo and she went a very healthy 6.5 lengths faster than standard, which is nearly 14 lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner in this race. The daughter or American drops in grade for this and has plenty of fitness in the tank, while the 2kg claim for Kiran Quilty gets her down to a winnable weight. The apprentice hoop is three from seven for the stable.
