Great News will take winning form into the third at Gosford today and can continue her rise through the grades.
The Uncle Mo filly finished in the places in each of her first two career starts before returning to the paddock and resumed with a dominant performance to break her maiden at Wyong a couple of weeks ago.
This is harder, but she harbours plenty of upside and will take beating. She is my best bet of the day.
Lunasnit is another horse that will enjoy good improvement into her second campaign task at Ballarat today and is over the odds to win ($8.50 at publish).
The Danny O’Brien-trained filly was a consistent performer last time in and was rewarded for her form with a lovely win over 1400m at Werribee.
She ran a tough race to finish second behind Brazen Song when resuming at Geelong and will relish a nice drop in the weights from that effort.
This is a step up in class for Gold Rhapsody, but she has returned to the races in excellent condition this time and will relish racing on a rain-affected track.
The four-year-old daughter of Strategic Maneuver recorded impressive and consecutive wins at Port Macquarie and Taree when resuming from a spell and flew home late to only just miss in BM66 company at Coffs Harbour last time out.
She can tuck in behind the pace from barrier 8 and with even luck, finish over the top of her rivals at a lovely price ($7 at publish).
Maserartie Bay hasn’t been seen at the races since December, but he is a proven fresh performer and is up to winning at Ballarat this afternoon.
The three-year-old son of Artie Schiller broke his maiden with ease at Kyneton first-up last time, continuing his rise through the grades with another win at Seymour before finishing fourth in the VOBIS Gold Stockade here at Ballarat.
There are no real stars engaged for a start here and it does look a nice launchpad for Maserartie Bay.
