I don’t mind NIGHT OF MAYHEM ($6 with Sportsbet) in Race 2 of the day at Echuca. The filly from the Steve Noble stable showed improvement when stepping out here on July 3 over the 1100m, finishing a narrow runner-up behind I’m Speechless. In that race, she settled out three-wide without cover and came out even wider in the straight before running on to finish half a length away. The daughter of Zoustar went four lengths slower than standard benchmark, which are the best figures that any horse in this race have produced. If she is able to run up to her last start effort she is right in this.

MAGNA AMOUR ($5 with ladbrokes) shapes as a player in Race 3 of the day. The new season four-year-old has had five career starts and resumed on the Heavy at Moe on July 17, finishing 4th behind Velicina. She settled handy in that race and was a bit green but stuck on well, going 0.4 lengths slower than standard, which is nine lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner. Second up last time she was an improver on figures when 4th at Warrnambool and she shouldn’t be too far away in the run.

TRANQUIL BAY ($3.60 with ladbrokes) is another that can break the maiden tag at Echuca. The Anthony & Sam Freedman-trained galloper heads to the border and should find this easier than a last start effort that saw her finish 6th behind Sharp Response at Sandown on July 21. On that occasion, she settled in a midfield position and stuck on well to finish within three lengths of the winner, going 0.5 lengths slower than standard. They are the best last start figures of any runner and it is only Deel Blaster that has produced something slightly superior from a career point of view. She was close up in her two runs earlier this preparation and the step up to the 1400m should suit.

The final event of the day is over the 2100m and SHAKESPEARE ($3.50 with Sportsbet) can chalk up an overdue win. The Patrick Payne-trained galloper drops in grade after missing out behind Falls at Caulfield over the 2000m a few Saturday’s ago. He was 8th in that race but managed to produce the second fastest last 200m, despite having to come out very wide around the turn. He may have found the 2600m a bit too far prior to that at Werribee but was excellent four starts ago when just missing out in a BM78 at Sandown over the 2100m. The likelihood of a Soft track is a bonus, while Matthew Allen can save plenty of ground from barrier 2.
