Race 1 - 2:00PM Australian Lamb Company 3YO Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)
EDGY ERA ($4.40 with bet365) can chalk up her first career win when she steps out in the opener. The Aaron Purcell-trained galloper is winless in six start but hasn’t been far away at her past three runs, placing in two of those. She led at a fast tempo over the 1000m at Warrnambool two starts ago before being grabbed late and was no match for Pocket Rox when runner-up at her latest, with that run coming at Hamilton over the 1100m. This doesn’t seem to be a particularly strong maiden and she has gone within three lengths of benchmark at her past two runs, which is above the class average and better than what any of the rivals have been producing. The daughter of Reward For Effort shouldn’t have to burn too much fuel from barrier 4 and will be ridden by the 3kg claimer, Sheridan Clarke. She is three from seven for the stable, providing a 113% profit on turnover for punters.
Race 5 - 4:00PM BET365 BM70 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Race 5 is a BenchMark 70 and CONTALMAISON ($7.50 with Sportsbet) should be ready to show something at his third run this time in. The five-year-old was 6th behind In The Boat when resuming at Caulfield before leading and fading late behind Beehunter at Pakenham over the 1200m last time, finishing 7th. Form out of that race has been red hot and he did go 4.7 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which are the best last start figures of any runner in this race. Third up last time he improved eight lengths on figures to score at Pakenham over the 1200m, while he should enjoy a cushy run on the speed from barrier 4.
Race 7 - 5:00PM Australian Lamb Company Colac Gold Cup (2000 METRES)
The Colac Gold Cup is the feature and AURORA’S SYMPHONY ($3 with bet365) should be hard to beat. The Symon Wilde-trained galloper has finished in the top three at his past four starts and stepped out over the 1700m off a seven-week break at Warrnambool two starts ago, finishing 3rd behind Garimpeiro. At his latest he closed off solidly behind Rousseau, who had caught them napping at the 600m. The five-year-old has some excellent form at the distance and was a winner at his only start at the track and trip. Linda Meech rides and will have him right in the mix from barrier 1.
