Cannonball can return a winner at Geelong this afternoon.
The Capitalist colt made two appearances at the races during his debut prep, finishing fifth in the Maribyrnong Trial and fourth in the Golden Gift.
This is quite clearly the easiest task that he has been set, and I’m more than keen to dive in at the $2.05 that is available at publish.
Gundec will resume in the fifth at Geelong this afternoon, and he is over the odds at his current price ($6.50 at publish).
The Kermadec colt returned some lovely efforts last time in, and only just missed at Geelong first-up before striking in the Victoria Derby Trial at Flemington, most notably.
This looks a lovely campaign launchpad for him, and anything close to his best would see him into the finish.
Sovereign Gold’s first-up performance and win at The ‘Bool was excellent, and she’ll take plenty of improvement into this contest.
The Snitzel mare has recorded two wins from just four career starts to date, and her first-up effort was the best of her career so far.
She would probably appreciate a bit of rain, but her class can take her a long way towards winning regardless.
Hillcrest Moses is ready to win when he steps out at Geelong this afternoon.
The Moshe gelding was no match for a few decent ones at Sandown in January, but he returned from a freshen-up to finish a close second at Sale late last month.
With improvement, something like this looks well within his grasp.
