RACE 1 - 12:02PM Grand Syndicates Handicap (1100 METRES)

AVIATRESS looks a smart filly who won her first two at Murray Bridge and Morphettville before she went to Flemington and made good ground running 4th behind Mumbai Muse in the G3 Red Roses. She won a recent trial ahead of her return and should take some beating. SACHEM is a former Victorian first-up for the Clarken/O’Shea stable. His form is over further, but the blinkers come off here at he was $26 to $9 when markets opened. MEETMEIN MELBOURNE has been in the Money at eight of 12 over the border and was solid last time out when he finished off strongly beaten 1.8 lengths behind Excess at Caulfield. WALLY WEST has his share of ability but has won just the one race. He is and capable of running a race here with the blinkers going on here. THE GREAT BABY has a good record and was just nailed late by Prairie Flower here last time. He should run well. COOL THE JETS has trialled well for his return.
