THE EARLY OIL

-

1 Blink­ers switched on DEMON­STRATE (2) at Morn­ing­ton when he led through­out. Had the race un­der con­trol a long way out and won with some­thing in hand. His two pre­vi­ous runs, when he ran on strongly, were also sound. JALAN JALAN (6) flashed home af­ter be­ing held up when third to the smart Green Card at Caulfield. MOST WANTED (7) was an im­pres­sive Caulfield jumpout win­ner. Another first-starter, PORT­MAN (8), dis­played abil­ity in Flem­ing­ton jumpout. Ade­laide visi­tor ABU DHABI (1) won in good style at Mor­phettville. VI­CIOUS (9) per­formed well in a jumpout. Sug­gested bet: Demon­strate each-way.

2 HAND­SOME TY­COON (6) is con­sis­tent and fought hard to win at Sale. Two Flem­ing­ton straight runs last year for a sec­ond and a third. DEL PRADO (4) stormed home to win at Bendigo. Has a good strike rate and Damien Oliver on. WRIT­TEN UP (2) shared the lead over the 1200m here last week but tired late in a stronger race. BISH­OPS CASTLE (3) wasn’t beaten far here here when sixth to Lon­rock­star, also a su­pe­rior race. BENCHI PE­GA­SUS (7) re­turned to form at Bendigo on a heavy track. Sug­gested bet: Hand­some Ty­coon each-way. 3 The Aus­tralian de­but of for­mer French mare IT­ER­A­TION (8) was out­stand­ing — third to classy mares Jessy Belle and Miss Rose De Lago. The 1800m should prove ideal. EV­ERY FAITH (2) didn’t get into the race over 1400m be­hind Charmed Har­mony at Caulfield. Classy and is back to 1600m and her own sex. KEPT WOMAN (12) was strong win­ning at Bendigo and drops 6.5kg. TO BE HON­EST (4) ral­lied hard to win at Bal­larat af­ter look­ing beaten to make it two in a row. DIS­TANT DREAMS (1) is a tough mare. Sug­gested bet: It­er­a­tion the win.

4 IL CAVALLO (7) was dis­ap­point­ing first-up but was pres­sured in the lead on a wet track at Bal­larat. Won by 4½ lengths in his only run over this track and dis­tance. THE THIEF (3) likes the straight 1000m when the sting is out of the track. IT’S PO­ETS DAY (8) is speedy and held on well when third at the Val­ley. Win­ner over this track and dis­tance. KAISER SUN (1), who also likes the straight, re­sumes for a new sta­ble. TANSY (10) is tal­ented. Sug­gested bet: Il Cavallo the win.

5 HERS­TORY (2) looks primed to re­turn to the win­ner’s cir­cle af­ter three runs back from a spell. Took on the boys at Caulfield last start in a stronger race and ran on nicely for sec­ond to Vol­canic Ash with the smart Ac­tu­ar­iat and Ra­poso third and fourth. AMARELA (6) re­turned to form when sec­ond over 1100m to the un­der­rated OUR HAR­MONY (1) at Caulfield. LIRABIRD (3), who looks above av­er­age, was a close-up fourth in the same race. CHAM­PAGNE COCK­TAIL (9) fought on well for fourth last week over 1600m. ALL ABOUT RHYTHM (5) has im­pressed in her three starts. Sug­gested bet: Hers­tory the win.

6 SUPIDO (5) has shown out­stand­ing abil­ity in his brief ca­reer. At his de­but last year at Caulfield over 1000m, he rock­eted home for sec­ond to ROUGH JUS­TICE (1). He flopped next start be­fore be­ing spelled for a one-run cam­paign, an im­pres­sive win at Sandown. Won a re­cent trial easily on a heavy Cran­bourne track. Rough Jus­tice is al­ways hard to beat in these races. LORD ESPRIT (6) flew home for sec­ond to Rough Jus­tice. LOCK­ROY (4) wasn’t suited by the heavy track at Rose­hill. Won im­pres­sively at the same track be­fore that. Tas­ma­nian VALIANT WAR­RIOR (2) has won six of eight, in­clud­ing one over top gal­loper Ad­mi­ral. Sug­gested bet: Supido the win.

7 CHARMED HAR­MONY (4) used sus­tained speed to crush his ri­vals at Caulfield when he re­turned to 1400m. In his past six 1400m starts, he’s won four and run a sec­ond. ROYAL IS­LAND (8) flopped in the heavy at Rose­hill but is much bet­ter than that. 1400m should suit. PAGO ROCK (7) was well held in the Sir John Monash. Re­turns to 1400m, at which he has solid form. KHUTULUN (16) ran on well at Caulfield for third to Pilly’s Wish. The 1400m will suit. Sug­gested bet: Charmed Har­mony the win.

8 Craig Wil­liams on AC­TU­AR­IAT (12) and Oliver on AB­BASSO (11) should be to the fore in this. Ac­tu­ar­iat has a touch of class and ran on strongly for third be­hind Vol­canic Ash at Caulfield over 1400m. Oliver was at his best when get­ting runs through the field to win on Ab­basso at Sale. HEN­WOOD (4) chased hard when third to Charmed Har­mony at Caulfield. Look­ing for 1600m. MA­JES­TIC DUKE (5) is aim­ing for a city hat-trick af­ter all-the-way wins at the Val­ley and Flem­ing­ton. CLANGA’S GLORY (9) won this race two years ago and ran well last start. Sug­gested bet: Ac­tu­ar­iat the win.

9 SHIKARPOUR (11) was held up for a run when fourth to Falago here. Drawn out, which will help, as will a wet track and likely faster pace. BAG­MAN (1) ran on well for third to Lord Du­rante at Caulfield. SE­CES­SIO (6), re­turned to form in that race. COM­MAND­ING TIME (5) and CLEMO (10) next best. Sug­gested bet: Shikarpour each-way.
