SET THE BAR LOW (Race 1)
MILLA’S READY (Race 2)
GOODARCHIE (Race 7)
RACE 1 - 12:45PM Celebration of Members Maiden Plate (1100 METRES)
SET THE BAR LOW was good on debut when 3rd behind Bajan Belle on the Parks. That’s good form for a race like this and she gets her chance to break through. MADAM PRANCEALOT is a former NSW mare who was placed at Nowra in December and makes her local debut for David Jolly. She trialled only fairly but draws an inside barrier. SEAFARING ran well at a price when 3rd behind Starts With Hello. FAMILY ADDITION can improve here. REMARKABLES made ground first-up in SA behind Lonrodex.
SELECTIONS: 9 SET THE BAR LOW, 8 Madam Prancealot, 2 Seafaring, 3 Family Addition
PLAY: Backing SET THE BAR LOW on the back of last time.
RACE 2 - 1:20PM Goolwa Central Meats Maiden Plate (1100 METRES)
MILLA’S READY is a former NSW filly on debut for Will Clarken. She never got out of second gear in a Murray Bridge trial last week and should give this a big shake is she handles the conditions. SPIRITUAL GAL comes out of the Bajan Belle race at Morphettville. She was runner-up behind Sabermatic at Murray Bridge before that and has been bursting to win a maiden. PINDARI POINT was placed on soft conditions at Kyneton two starts back. ADA LEEZZA is on debut and had the three trials.
SELECTIONS: 8 MILLA’S READY, 9 Spiritual Gal, 3 Pindari Point, 6 Ada Leezza
PLAY: MILLA’S READY and SPIRITUAL GAL should be fighting this out.
RACE 3 - 1:55PM Harry of All Trades Maiden Plate (1600 METRES)
CLUB QUEEN was narrowly beaten here first-up from a spell by Cross Creek. He draws out again but looks the one to beat here with natural improvement. A MIDNIGHT SHADOW jumped favourite when 4th in the same race. He was runner-up behind Princess Raffles at Oakbank back in March and should give this a shake from the good barrier. CHENIAH ran a good race at big odds in the same race on debut when 3rd and must be given some thought. HOSTESS SUSIE has made good ground his past couple.
SELECTIONS: 8 CLUB QUEEN, 6 A Midnight Shadow, 7 Cheniah, 9 Hostess Susie
PLAY: Staying with CLUB QUEEN.
RACE 4 - 2:30PM Northpoint Fleurieu Rating 0 - 56 Handicap (1600 METRES)

FIGHT FOR FREEDOM ran OK when 4th behind Sirmaze two starts back and then only battled at Balaklava last week. READY FORA MOET has been around the mark and draws a good barrier here. SAWTELL has been racing well and was good up in grade behind Tubby Two Track at Morphettville on the Parks before looking to have his chance behind Silent Don at Balaklava last week. Stablemate LITTLEBITFUNNY had good market support here two starts back.
SELECTIONS: 5 SIRMAZE, 6 Fight For Freedom, 4 Ready Fora Moet, 7 Sawtell
PLAY: Something each-way on READY FORA MOET.

SITTING BULL was OK behind Old Time Rock at Mount Gambier second-up from a spell. He gets in here well after the claim. CARTIER TIARA has been in the money at five if eight starts here and beat Nana Dulce two starts back before a good run behind The Partisan last time. He draws out but looks well placed. MARSHALL DILLON was OK behind Sea Witness at Mildura last time and draws a good barrier. BEEOKAY was placed at his only start here. DECISIVE HEART is back from an Alice Springs campaign but does have a good record on a slow track. Stablemate EM BRYAN won his only race on a heavy track.
SELECTIONS: 1 SITTING BULL, 2 Cartier Tiara, 3 Marshall Dillon, 5 Beeokay
PLAY: Hard to separate the top three and going to keep an eye on the market.
RACE 6 - 3:40PM Commercial Hotel Rating 0 - 56 Handicap (1200 METRES)
PIVOTAL FORCE has won two of four starts here on his home track and was heavily backed when 4th behind Toorak Warrior at Balaklava last week. He draws out but gets his chance to find some form here. ENZED BEER finished off well behind The Partisan first-up from a spell and draws the inside. Stablemate KEYSOR had some specking at odds and was only beaten 2.1 lengths in the same race also first-up. He maps well from barrier four. SAND CAT has a good record here and draws a good gate. UTAH JOE comes off a good effort when 3rd behind Naleigh here. RIPPA EAGLE made good ground behind Sea Witness at Mildura last time and gets in well after the claim. His good runs have been on speed, but he draws wide. VENUSIAN has OK form on rain affected tracks and was a Murray Bridge winner three starts back.

GOODARCHIE was runner-up behind Valaroc here two starts back at big odds before backing that up running 2nd to Canidae here last time. He draws a middle gate and should give this a shake. TEMPTING BELLE ran favourite when 4th behind Canidae begore a handy effort in town behind Time Warrior. ZOUSTORM was placed here behind Canidae tow runs back and also comes out of the Time Warrior race in metro grade. MORE SHOTS ran OK in the same race and is trained here. GO BOO BOO was a winner here in January beating Prince Of Fences and was OK behind Naleigh last time. TABLE OF WISDOM has a win on heavy ground and could be an improver here. ORDER IS RESTORED stuck on well behind Naleigh last time and has been placed at two of his five starts here.
SELECTIONS: 9 GOODARCHIE, 7 Temping Belle, 10 Zoustorm, 4 Go Boo Boo
PLAY: Something on GOODARCHIE each-way.
