Indy Rose Warrior can make a winning return at Cranbourne this evening.
The El Roca filly is yet to break her maiden, but she showed great ability last time in, and only just missed in a few races at The Valley.
This looks an ideal launchpad, and she can begin her rise through the grades.
Chart Buster is ready to win.
The Lindsay Park-trained gelding has been a consistent performer since making his debut, and he is unlucky not to have already struck at least once.
He has improved noticeably with each of his three starts back this time, and he takes his place in this contest following a nice effort for second over 1200m at Benalla.
He doesn’t win out of turn, but I thought that this looked a nice race for Storm’s Colours, and we can have an each-way play at current odds ($14 at publish).
The Fighting Sun gelding has missed placing only once in his last five trips to the races, and he was last seen filling the minors in the Kerang Cup.
He’s rock-hard fit and with even luck, he can fight out the finish again.
I’m going to give Head First another chance in the last at Cranbourne tonight.
Head First recorded a dominant win at Wodonga on debut last July and was immediately put away, and she hasn’t been awful in three starts back this time, without setting the world on fire.
She looks to be at peak fitness for this contest, she gets into it well, and I’m not sure she’ll be offered a better opportunity to strike.
