Daily Dogs – Saturday, April 13

Wentworth Park: Race 5 (7:31pm)
No. 1 Omega Travis

Omega Travis is a proven track and distance performer with three wins on the board.

The son of Fernando Bale been around the mark of late running a place in his last two attempts in similar company.

With good early speed engaged, he should be able to sit back from the inside box and save his best for the finish.

Wentworth Park: Race 6 (7:55pm)
No. 6 All Natural

All Natural should land right on the bunny and prove very tough to catch.

He’s been the model of consistency since resuming in January, winning six of his eight starts, including four over the 520m trip.

His best track/distance time is a solid 29.87 seconds, and with wins to his name from Box 6, he does rate a serious danger to the favourite.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (8:15pm)
No. 5 Angel Shirley

Angel Shirley always jumps well from Box 5, posting two of her five wins from this draw.

She was back in the winner’s circle three weeks ago over the same track and trip, storming into the clear a 9.8 length winner in the end.

She just found one better two weeks ago but does look one of the toughest to hold out if she gets the right run off the speed.

Wentworth Park: Race 9 (9:19pm)
No. 8 Good Odds Cobber

Good Odds Cobber should be prominent from box rise in a race that holds plenty of early speed.

The son of Fernando Bale owns 11 wins from 18 attempts over this trip, adding to that record last week where he was simply too good drawing 1.5 lengths clear.

Capable of handling the wide alley, he’ll be very hard to catch.

Daily Dogs – Friday, April 12

Bendigo: Race 3 (3:32pm) 
No. 2 Our Fabio  

Our Fabio is a talented track and distance specialist that returned to the winner’s stall at Shepparton last week with a comfortable victory over shorter.  

His second-up record is solid and he does own a pair of wins from Box 2.  

Likely to settle just off the speed, he’ll be one of the toughest to hold out.  

each way
Bendigo: Race 5 (4:24pm)  
No. 5 Bumpy’s Dad Roy

Bumpy’s Dad Roy will look to cross over early from midfield and make full use of his early speed.  

The son of Collision owns a pair of wins over the track and journey, his best coming in a tidy time of 23.74 seconds.  

In an open race, he rates a decent each-way play to go all the way. 

Bendigo: Race 7 (5:04pm)
No. 2 Mistress Oasis

Mistress Oasis should appreciate the hot early tempo as she attempts to make full use of the inside box.  

She found 400m a little on the short side last week at Geelong but does look better suited out over her preferred trip now where she’s won on six occasions.  

Bendigo: Race 9 (5:49pm)
No. 6 Bella La Vita

Bella La Vita has to be taken seriously with seven wins to her name over this trip.  

This is her first look at Bendigo, but the daughter of Hard Style Rico has been around the mark of late, winning well three back at Geelong.  

If she gets a cart across early from Box 6 and gets back off the speed, she’ll be able to save her best for late.  

Daily Dogs – Thursday, April 11

Sandown: Race 3 (6:50pm)
No. 3 Canya Vanquish

Canya Vanquish looks ready for this trip now in his third run back.  

The lightly-raced two-year-old charged late to run second at Warragul last week over shorter and is armed with plenty of early speed to be competitive once lids fly.  

Providing he steps well, he should be every chance in an open race.

Sandown: Race 5 (7:31pm)
No. 1 Pommel Boy

Pommel Boy is a talented stayer that should find this sharp drop back in distance to his liking.  

The son of Fernando Bale placed over much further at Geelong last week and was also a winner around the 600m trip at The Meadows three back.  

The inside box is to his favour and he’ll likely be one of the hardest to hold out.  

Sandown: Race 7 (8:34pm)
No. 5 Voice Of Thunder

Voice Of Thunder is nearing another win based on recent efforts.  

His performance last week over the same track and trip was full of merit, landing on the speed and just finding one better in the run home.  

Likely to ping the lids and lead, he’ll prove hard to catch again.  

Sandown: Race 9 (8:58pm)
No. 2 Fernando Gomez

Fernando Gomez should land on the bunny and take serious catching.  

He’s an impressive five-time winner over the 515m trip here at Sandown and is likely to find plenty of running room with a vacant box next door.  

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, April 10

The Meadows: Race 5 (8:10pm)  
No. 6 Crusoe Rico  

Crusoe Rico found it tough from a wider box over this track and trip last start when beaten 18 lengths in the end.  

His maiden win on debut the start prior at Bendigo was full of merit and he should be afforded more luck in running this time from Box 6.  

The Meadows: Race 7 (8:51pm)
No. 3 Aston Allure

Aston Allure is armed with early speed, as we saw a fortnight ago when she led all the way to win over shorter at Geelong.  

The daughter of Aston Dee Bee is untried over the 520m trip but does look suited after gapping her rivals by 5.3 lengths that night.  

Likely to land on the bunny, she’ll be one of the hardest to catch.  

The Meadows: Race 9 (9:33pm)
No. 6 Stapleton

Stapleton has made three starts to date, placing in his first two here at The Meados and Ballarat before finding the 450m trip a little on the short side at Shepparton last week.  

He should find the rise in distance suitable from a wider box, while he’s also got enough speed to cross early on and find the front.  

The Meadows: Race 11 (10:17pm)
No. 4 Aeroplane Ricky

Aeroplane Ricky was solid on return at Geelong two weeks ago when running on late for a place.  

His second-up record makes for easy reading and he has typically done his best racing over the 525m trip.  

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, April 9

Geelong: Race 5 (4:37pm AEDT)
No. 2 Lily Crackers

Lily Crackers has multiple wins to her name from Box 2 as she gets back over her preferred distance.

The daughter of Mepunga Blazer is a five-time winner over this trip, her best coming in a time of 22.73 seconds here at Geelong.

She’s got plenty of late speed under the hood, and providing she steps well, she should be one of the hardest to beat.

Geelong: Race 7 (5:12pm AEDT)
No. 8 Full Speed Ahead

The wide box should suit Full Speed Ahead in just her third run back.

The three-year-old by Magical Bale has just missed out on a place in her last two starts, beaten nearly six lengths last week at Ballarat over a touch shorter.

One of her three wins has come over this track and distance in a slick time of  22.67 seconds, and if she gets to the front early, she’ll take real catching.

Geelong: Race 9 (5:45pm AEDT)
No. 8 Little Miss Envy

Little Miss Envy is another one that likes to race wide.

Her last two runner-up efforts at Bendigo and Shepparton have been sound, while she’s also placed in four of her seven starts over this trip.

If she can get a cart across early and land midfield, she’ll be hard to hold out.

Geelong: Race 11 (6:18pm AEDT)
No. 7 Cloudy Wren

Open race, but certainly one Cloudy Wren can win providing she brings her best.

The daughter of Tommy Shelby won her maiden over this track and distance by 3.7 lengths last month, retuning to the winner’s circle last week at Warrnambool where she made full use of the inside box to win over 450m.

She loves racing up on the speed and with plenty of upside, represents solid each-way value.

Daily Dogs – Monday, April 8

Ballarat: Race 4 (11:50am AEDT)
No. 4 Zipping Tania

Zipping Tania has produced all four of her wins over the 390m trip.

She went close to claiming another last week at Warrnambool, beaten only narrowly in the end from the inside box.

The daughter of Zipping Garth was stepping back sharply from 425m that day, but with more fitness on her side, she should be one of the hardest to hold out coming off the speed.

Ballarat: Race 6 (12:21pm AEDT)
No. 8 George Jetson

George Jetson is yet to win in three starts over the track and journey, but he has placed in a slick time of 25.73 seconds in the past.

Wide boxes haven’t troubled him during his short career and he should be up on the speed early if he can get a cart across.

Ballarat: Race 8 (1:04pm AEDT)
No. 1 Sippy Cup Emu

Sippy Cup Emu should find the front from Box 1 and take serious catching out over her preferred trip.

The daughter of Fernando Bale has won on three occasions over this distance range during her lengthy career.

She looked unsuited by the 510m journey at Sale last time out, but should be one of the hardest to run down up on the speed.

Ballarat: Race 9 (1:27pm AEDT)
No. 3 Make Us Dream

Make Us Dream should land right on the bunny and take catching from Box 3.

She’s gone close in her last three attempts over this distance range, beaten by a nose last week from wider out.

With a lack of early speed, she looks well-suited to claim her second win.

Daily Dogs – Sunday, April 7

Sandown: Race 2 (1:58pm AEDT)  
No. 6 Payback  

Payback has found her best form and looks ready to claim her hat-trick now.  

The lightly-raced daughter of Handsome Prince won by a whopping 8.5 length margin in restriction company here last week, showing further improvement after claiming her maiden a week earlier.  

She’s got a wider alley to contend with now but should find plenty of running room with a vacant box next door.  

Sandown: Race 4 (2:49pm AEDT)
No. 6 Temper Trap

Temper Trap was an eye-catching winner on debut last week over the same distance from a slightly better box.  

The daughter of My Redeemer went on to win by 1.5 lengths after settling just off the speed at box rise, and it doesn’t look as though she’ll need to improve much to measure up in this field.  

Sandown: Race 7 (3:41pm AEDT)
No. 3 Another Houdini

Another Houdini is an honest type that very rarely fails to run a place.  

Her win two back at Horsham over shorter was solid, and it seemed as though she might be wanting further than 485m last week where she ran third after jumping from a wide box.  

She’s drawn a more suitable assignment this time around and I think we’ll see her burning along early up on the speed. 

Sandown: Race 10 (4:39pm AEDT)
No. 7 Irish Millie

Irish Millie won well at Warragul three back and has been racing as though she might want further.  

Her last two efforts over 460m have been only plain, but as we’ve seen in the past, she is suited by these longer trips.  

With a win and a place to her name from Box 7, she looks a genuine threat in an open race. 

Daily Dogs – Saturday, April 6

The Meadows: Race 2 (5:58pm AEDT)
No. 8 Cabao Jasper

Cabao Jasper has been racing in consistent form, finding the money in three of his last four starts.  

The son of Beast Unleashed was beaten a length over the track and distance last week in Grade 6 company and shouldn’t find this much tougher after placing in a mixed event three runs back. 

He’s done some of his best racing from Box 8 and looks close to another win. 

The Meadows: Race 4 (6:40pm AEDT)
No. 1 Maximum Lyn

Maximum Lyn looks a good bet in a thin race following a couple of scratchings.  

The daughter of Fernando Bale been airborne this prep placing twice and finally breaking through for a well-deserved win at Warrnambool last week.  

She’s mixed her form over this trip, but drawn the inside box again, she should be right there up on the speed. 

each way
The Meadows: Race 7 (7:41pm AEDT)
No. 7 Silky Sauce

Silky Sauce owns some nice wins over the track and distance, his best coming in a tidy time of 30.04 seconds.  

He was a clear three-length winner at Bendigo four runs back and has been thereabouts in his last two starts at Geelong and Warrnambool.  

Drawing wide tends to work in his favour and he should be prominent on speed if he gets across early.  

The Meadows: Race 9 (8:25pm AEDT)
No. 7 So Certain

So Certain looks one of the better bets on the program stepping out in search of her hat-trick.  

By Shima Shine, her win last week at Bendigo in special conditions was strong, pinging the lids early and finding something extra up on the speed. 

She’s still got plenty left to give, and after winning well over this trip the start prior, the rise in distance should suit.  

Daily Dogs – Friday, April 5

Sale: Race 4 (7:12pm AEDT)  
No. 3 Dr Gillian  

Dr Gillian is making just her fourth appearance at the races after winning by a clear 6.8 length margin at this venue two back. 

She found the rise to 460m a stretch too far last week at Warragul, but does come back in trip now with another handy inside box at her disposal.  

Armed with late speed, she should get back early in the run and pounce over the final stages.  

Sale: Race 6 (7:55pm AEDT)
No. 8 Dan Dan

Dan Dan looks close to another win coming off a third-place effort at Traralgon last week.  

He won well four back at Sale over a shorter trip and has found success from Box 8 in the past.  

With his best racing coming here at Sale, he looks a nice bet in a very open race.  

Sale: Race 8 (8:32pm AEDT)
No. 8 Dusty Old Road

Dusty Old Road has plenty of experience here at Sale, cashing a cheque in four of his 15 starts.  

He was beaten a clear margin at Traralgon last week in a tougher race where he looked to be wanting further in the run home.  

His best track/distance PB came in a time of 29.29 seconds, and with enough luck from the wide alley, he should be going close.

Sale: Race 10 (9:12pm AEDT)
No. 5 Bear Hand

Bear Hand was a clear runner-up last week over the track and distance behind Collinda Rise.  

He’s drawn to receive more running room from Box 5 and is also the benefactor of an empty slot next door.  

Proven here at Sale, he should be finishing off strongly.  

Daily Dogs – Thursday, April 4

Sandown: Race 2 (6:10pm AEDT)  
No. Dundee Lexi  

Dundee Lexi is always a threat over this distance with a pair of wins to her name. Her runner-up effort last week was solid, and she should be afforded a nice cart into the race from the inside box.  

Sandown: Race 4 (6:49pm AEDT)  
No. 6 Go Seek Reece  

Go Seek Reece won by five lengths over the same trip at The Meadows last time out. He’s got a wider box to contend with here but is tough to knock on recent form. With no real early speed, he should have an easy time of it up front.  

Sandown: Race 7 (7:49pm AEDT)  
No. 4 Rixi Bale  

Rixi Bale goes well over this trip, as we saw last week when she was only beaten a nose after settling handy. Two wins from Box 4 reads well on her resume and her best is certainly good enough to be a real contender.  

Sandown: Race 9 (8:31pm AEDT)  
No. 2 Orli Bale  

Orli Bale should be suited with an empty box next door. He was back in the winner’s stall last time out over shorter and is likely to be one of the toughest to hold out coming off the speed.
