RACE 1 - 12:45PM Irongate Australia Maiden Plate (1100 METRES)
TONY MONTANA has been placed at two of five and comes off a good effort when 2nd behind Glacius at here. He draws a good barrier and gets his chance. DR CHOCCY is a watch first-up for 20 months for Garret Lynch. He was placed at three starts before a spell and has won a recent trial ahead of his return. AND THEN is another big watch. He was $41 into $16 when placed first-up for the Daniel/Stanbury stable and should strip fitter here. NOT A SINGLE BID was solid behind Saville at Balaklava last week and must be respected. BE ABOVE was OK in his first two runs before being soft in the market and running down the track here behind Hansom Man.
SELECTIONS: 8 TONY MONTANA, 4 Dr Choccy, 1 And Then, 7 Not A Single Bid
PLAY: Something each-way DR CHOCCY from the inside gate.

TIGER QUEEN was well beaten here before a break. Her previous she ran favourite when 3rd behind Bella Soo at Strathalbyn and should run well with Todd Pannell taking the ride. POCKET RAIDER was favourite when 6th behind Giallo at Bordertown. She maps well from the barrier and should be in the finish. MYSTIC STORM had specking at a price when 3rd behind Hansom Man here last time. TEQUILA SUNSET has been specked from double figure odds and was OK first-up. KATINA JOY is resuming here and trialled OK, the stable is having a nice run. ALPINE FUN draws the inside.

KING OF AVALON was a winner here two starts back and then a touch plain on face value behind Dixie Whistler last time. WOLF PRINCE was OK behind Dixie Whistler at Balaklava last week and this might be a touch easier. CHELMO boxed OK last time behind Hallaroste.

She looks hard to beat from a good barrier. MAVETTE was OK behind Lomax here two starts back and draws a good barrier. CITY BEATS was a Mildura winner three starts back and does have a good record here. ORDER IS RESTORED should run well from a middle gate.

GO BALLISTIC was a big drifter before leading throughout to beat Sirmaze here last time. He draws out but should give this a shake. SIRMAZE was placed behind Go Ballistic here two runs back before being placed behind Photogenic at Balaklava last time and has strong appeal. GREY VITALITY should have won at Balaklava two runs back and was close-up again here behind Sand Can last time. MAGICLANE jumped favourite when she led throughout to win at Balaklava last week, she's on the quick back-up but must be respected. MOSS THE BOSS has been placed his last couple the latest here behind Ready For a Moet. TABLE OF WISDOM was placed at Balaklava two starts back before battling last time. He draws a gate and gets Todd Pannell. ZIGGI ROCKS made ground first-up in SA. MUFFLA can improve second-up here after he was well beaten by Venusian at Murray Bridge last time.

RACE 6 - 3:40PM Cornerstone Stud Benchmark 58 Handicap (1100 METRES)
DEEVINE bolted in here three starts back and has followed up with two good efforts behind Litchfield County and Quietly Discreet in city class. He gets in well after the 3kg claim and is the horse to beat. SITTING BULL made good ground behind Sanbuck and was a Strathalbyn winner three starts back. Drawing out may the right place to be late. HEY MICHAEL was a big drifter at his local debut before beating Daskulya here last time. OLD TIME ROCK wasn't beaten far up in class last time and the 1100 looks ideal with Todd Pennell to ride.
SELECTIONS: 1 DEEVINE, 7 Sitting Bull, 2 Hey Michael, 3 Old Time Rock
PLAY: Keen on DEEVINE to regain winning form.

He will still have to carry 60.5kg after the claim and is very short but deserves to break through. BETTA EDDIE is another in great form and has been placed at 4 of 8 here. ZIP AKEED could be an improver second-up from the inside barrier. SAND CAT was good coming off the speed to beat Friendly Ghost last time out. RUSTYDUSTYSUNSHINE has won 5 of 33 here and was too good for Betta Eddie three runs back. CHEH CHEH CHARLEE was good was good here two starts back when 3rd in the same race.
