Race 3 - 1:25PM GATTON VIEW HOTEL BENCHMARK 60 Handicap (1600 METRES)
Toowoomba galloper PERFECT PAGE (best odds $3.70 with Sportsbet) has podium finishes in two of his past three appearances and looks a great chance here to go back-to-back today. Last start, the Instinction mare came off a disappointing run in the Narango Cup (on a Firm 2 that day), and bounced back on her home track with a close-up win in a BM62 over the mile. Coming from well back on the turn, she stormed home to grab victory right on the line. She ran the trip, 3.9 lengths slower than benchmark, the best here by more than 4 lengths. The five-year-old also posted the fastest final 200m for the race that day. This looks no harder and after the claim (from first-time rider Jake Molloy), she carries just 2.5kgs more than her last-start win. From gate seven, she will drop back early but watch for a big finish from the mare.
Race 5 - 2:40PM HARMAN CONCRETE Class 4 Handicap (1400 METRES)
The Kathy Stabe-trained MONT MONT (best odds $6.50 with Sportsbet) is in great touch this time in and looks in the mix here again. Last start, the Monashee Mountain gelding proved too good for them in a BM50 over 1200m at Narango. Carrying 62kgs with first-time rider Vishan Venkaya in the saddle, he put a length on them over the line that day. He steps up in class here but accordingly comes down in weight and the 6.5kg drop will play a major role in his chances here. Drawn well in gate five, he maps to settle near mid-field and with a clear run home, he shapes up as a solid chance here at odds.
Race 6 - 3:15PM BOWES ELECTRICAL BENCHMARK 55 Handicap (1400 METRES)
Making his track debut today, the Chelsea Jokic-trained MY ZEBRINKA (best odds $7 with bet365) has found his mojo of late and this contest looks ideal for him today. Last start, the Zoffany gelding came off a fair effort at the Gold Coast in BM60 company when he took his place at Dalby in in a BM55 over 1200m. With Jokic (herself) aboard that day, he was sent out as the race favourite ($3.60) and didn’t disappoint. Coming from last on the turn, Jokic wound him up and he responded, winning the one-on-one battle with Snap On and taking the honours right on the line. He ran the last 600m, 6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the equal-best here and posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals for the event. The step up in distance today looks ideal as he is already a winner over 1450m. Jokic (who holds a dual trainer/jockey licence has found the best from this fellow since taking over as trainer at the start of this year. She is on board again today and is expected to settle back in the field again. Against similar company here, he only has to carry 2kgs more which still sees him as a big chance at each-way odds today.
