DOVES CRY (R4 No. 3)

showed prom­ise at her first cou­ple of cam­paigns and will take beat­ing when she re­sumes at Kyne­ton to­mor­row. She showed up first prep, win­ning on de­but at Bal­larat be­fore a top ef­fort be­hind the handy Twitchy Frank. re­turned to rac­ing in Fe­bru­ary scor­ing again on fresh legs, this time in a Bm64 for girls un­der a big weight. She faces a mod­est con­tin­gent to­mor­row and will go close. BRYAN (R9 No. 2)

struck in in­cred­i­ble patch of form ear­lier this cam­paign and there is ev­ery rea­son to think he is still on a roll when he takes on a Bm84 at the end of the day. He won three in a row at the end of win­ter and won them in very im­pres­sive fash­ion, giv­ing away big starts and hit­ting the line strongly. He lost no ad­mir­ers two runs back when a close-up third to top sprint­ers Spend­ing To Win and Ed­uardo, then didn’t have things go his own way last time on heavy-9 at Rand­wick. He beat bet­ter fields than this ear­lier on and onto a bet­ter qual­ity sur­face he can bounce back. SNITZEPEG (R8 No. 6)

has been in the wars this prep run­ning into all sorts of bother run­ning, but with a wide draw in the Cup he gets a chance to drop back off the fence with cover and at least stay out of trou­ble. He ran a great race in the Moe Cup last start beat­ing all but the well per­formed stayer Six­ties Groove, and in a wide open event to­mor­row he should face the starter at good odds.
