VIDIANO looks to be a major player in Race 2 of the evening. The Peter Moody-trained galloper has had just the two career starts and placed 3rd on debut behind Sensationalisation at Geelong last December before stepping out a couple of weeks later and landing in the runner-up slot behind Narvaez over the 1600m at Sandown. In the Sandown race the daughter of Pierro was posted out three-wide without cover throughout but closed off very well in the straight to finish a length away. She produced the fastest last 400m and comes in with nine weeks in between runs but has been kept very steady in the market at the $2.30. With improvement to come at her third run, she should be very hard to hold out. Only Soaring Eagle has produced a higher figure. She has the speed to cross over from the wide draw and comes back to a provincial level.

Race 6 of the day at Pakenham is a Class 1 over the 1200m and OPPOSING is another on the programme that can take the next step. The Phillip Stokes-trained gelding kicked off his career with a dominant win at Sale and came from well back that day to reign in Prince Of Mercia. The figures out of that race were moderate but he was able to overcome the slow tempo and he is the only horse in this race to go faster than standard benchmark in the last 600m of their recent run. The slight step up in trip and the big track at Pakenham should give him time to wind up from the back of the field and with Daniel Stackhouse to ride from barrier 3 he will be hard to hold out.

The final event of the evening is a BenchMark 64 over the 1400m and ENERGY WITHIN can close the night out a winner. The filly from the Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes camp was a maiden winner at Geelong three starts ago and has since closed off well at her past two, which have been at Sandown. She finished alongside Parure two starts ago. That horse won the Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) at Caulfield last weekend. At her most recent start she was caught wide but closed off well for 4th behind Tuvalu. The daughter of Toronado went 3.5 lengths faster than standard in her recent run and anything like that should stack up well here, while she is another for Stackhouse from barrier 3.
