Moonee Valley: Race 5; #9 Perovic Down Arrow

I have to be against Perovic, who won the most basic of 3YO maidens last start at this track and distance and did so sitting on a pace that was 14L slower than maiden average, for a tempo that slow his closing figures weren't anything spectacular either.

Mahrez gets his chance here, he was slaughtered both by trainer with placement and jockey last preparation. It was only three starts ago he ran the quickest closing sectionals of the race being less than 3L off Miso and Wishlor Lass. He returned at Warrnambool and was given none again, he was three-wide restrained to midfield, loomed then was entitled to drop out but found again, running the fastest last 100m of the race.

Canterbury: Race 4; #1 Money From The Sky Down Arrow 

Is yet to win when first-up and from two attempts at the track has not been able to find a placing.


Gloucester Park: Race 4; #1 The Code Breaker Down Arrow

Think this is as far as this bloke wants and even if he holds up there will be plenty of pressure coming. Happy to risk.
