Race 3 of the day at Geraldton is a Rating 58+ and a number of these met at the venue on March 28 over the 1200m in a race taken out by Wildonbrook. STARTRADE should be the improver out of that race and finished 4th that day, beaten just under a length. The narrow runner-up horse, Midnight Rocket, is the danger but he meets that horse 2kg better at the weights. Startrade was posted three wide throughout but managed to produce the fastest last 200m and in his other three runs at Geraldton he was won two and finished runner-up in another. From barrier 4 the son of Trade Fair should get the run of the race and this looks to be the one for him.

SIGNIFICANT HERO should be hard to beat in Race 3 of the day at Geraldton. The four-year-old has had two runs this preparation and was a winner over the 1200m in a Class 1 when resuming before stepping up to this grade and running on impressively from the tail to just miss out behind Startrade. He overcame the slow early pace that day to produce the fastest last 200m and went 4.9 lengths slower than standard benchmark, which are the second best last start figures of any runner. After being tried over the 1400m and 1600m late at his last preparation, the stable have opted to stick to the 1200m and with a win and two runner-up performances from three goes at the track and trip, he is hard to ignore with Jerry Noske to steer from barrier 2.

The final event of the day sees some handy gallopers line up in a Rating 70+ and MYCROFT can go one spot better than a last start effort that saw him finish runner-up behind Big Shot Paddy over the 1900m here on March 28. In that race, the seven-year-old as stepping up from the 1400m and settled just worse than midfield in a slowly run race before producing the fastest last 200m en route to landing within a length of the winner. He meets that horse on better terms at the weights and was runner-up at his last preparation in this grade when stepping up from the 1900m to the 2025m before battling into 8th in the Geraldton Cup (2100m). From barrier 8, the son of Henrythenavigator will look to land with cover in the early stages and with even luck in running he can be right in it at the business end.
