ECHUCA

BEST BET

HELLION OF CLUSTER
(R3 No. 7 – $2.90)

Only start was $6 into $4.20 when third in Moonee Valley 2YO fillies event. Resumed after 59 weeks but had a good clean-out when not knocked about in recent Cranbourne trial.

NEXT BEST

REGAL RAVE
(Race 1 No. 3)

Should be right at his peak after three runs back from a spell and with a slow pace from an inside gate expect he’ll go forward and prove too good for a moderate lot.

VALUE BET

SLIPINTOTHIS

(Race 5 No. 7 – $5)

Has been racing consistently for Patrick Payne stable and looks placed to advantage in a moderate field going back to Benchmark 58 company.

THE JOCKEY

JAMIE MOTT

He misses the first couple of races but from there Jamie Mott could well clean up the card. HELLION OF CLUSTER (R3 No. 7 – $2.90), THE ADMIRAL (R4 No. 8 – $2.15), ALOVELYBROWNHORSE (R5 No. 12 – $7.50), VANCOUVER LAD (R6 No. 2 – $3.50), NEVERSHOTTHEDEPUTY (R7 No. 8 – $2.25), MISS SARATOSA (R8 No. 6 – $4.60).
