Af­ter a string of solid per­for­mances DODG­ING BUL­LETS (R8 No. 2) fi­nally cracked it for a win last time in town and can keep it go­ing in the Cup at Kyneton to­mor­row. It was a small but rea­son­able field at Moonee Val­ley but he toyed with them in the latter stages clear­ing out to score by three lengths over the Cox Plate trip. He is a very con­sis­tent stayer with form­lines around some handy types and only 1.5kg over the min­i­mum here he does look hard to beat again. PREZADO (R3 No. 6) put in an eye­catcher first-up and with that run be­hind him looks a good thing in the third. He is still learn­ing the ca­per but showed when last in work that he has loads of tal­ent with a close-up run at Flem­ing­ton be­hind Royal Phoenix. He got held up when run­ning on from the tail on fresh legs and from the per­fect draw looks too strong. MISS STRATHALLAN (R5 No. 3) didn’t set the world alight first-up over a mile three weeks ago but she re­turns to a dry track to­mor­row and is ca­pa­ble of very sharp im­prove­ment. She showed last cam­paign that was ca­pa­ble of mix­ing it with some the bet­ter stay­ers of her age group a stakes-plac­ing in the Galilee Fi­nal at Caulfield and top ef­forts in both

Au­tumn Clas­sic (Group Two) VRC St Leger. The ex­tra trip suits and she should come to hand quickly. SNEAK­ERS (R9 No. 7) found the class of the Alinghi Stakes too much for her last start and if we go on her pre­vi­ous form in more com­pa­ra­ble races she will give the last a mighty shake. She was beaten in con­sec­u­tive starts at the provin­cials by the nar­row­est of mar­gins when tak­ing on the boys, and back against the fairer sex to­mor­row we should see a sig­nif­i­cant lift on her most re­cent re­sult.
