Bendigo: Race 2 (2pm AEDT)
No. 4 Prince Of Mercia

Prince Of Mercia will take improvement into his second campaign start at Bendigo today and is ready to win.

The Magnus gelding has made just two appearances at the races so far, finishing fourth on debut at Moe in September, and he was unlucky not to break his maiden when a half-length second at Sale when resuming this time.

I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

Bendigo: Race 4 (3pm AEDT)
No. 3 Northeast Express

I’m happy to give Northeast Express one last chance to win at Bendigo today.

The Kevin Corstens-trained gelding has returned some nice efforts without winning this preparation, and he has finished second in three of his last four starts.

He is drawn to receive a nice run in transit and he simply will not be offered a better opportunity to win than this.

Bendigo: Race 5 (3:30pm AEDT)
No. 3 Northanna

Northanna has been a model of consistency this prep and strikes another winnable race at Bendigo today.

The Helmet mare has missed placing just once at her last five starts and comfortably won over 1950m at Great Western two starts back.

She is rock-hard fit and Austy Coffey’s horses seem to grow another leg under his son, Harry.

Bendigo: Race 7 (4:30pm AEDT)
No. 6 Dune Field

This looks to be the best race on today’s card at Bendigo and Dune Field has real claims on winning at a nice price ($7 at publish).

Trainer Jamie Edwards has typically saddled the son of Shamexpress in better races than this one during his career, and he is a multiple midweek winner.

He has found form around some quality runners recently and he is certainly up to winning.
