Robert Smerdon has guided Whitten Oval to 2 wins from as many starts. Hasn't thrown him in the deep end yet, i expect he'll proove too good for his rivals in the Macro's 0-68 Hcp, 1600m, Friday night , Cranbourne. Stick with this horse, he's going places. Tuesday morning he worked over 1200m in 1.26, home last 400m in 23.80.

On breeding alone it would be wise to monitor all market moves on the Peter Moody debutant Tan Tat Rock, in the Living Legends Hcp, 1200m, Flemington. Worked solidly on Tuesday morning and should be forward enough to perform here. He worked with Swift Succession over 800m, clocking 50.50 and 24.03 last 400m.

So Pristine has had 2 runs back from a spell, both have been excellent in good company. Will appreciate the step up to 2000m in the Lort Smith Hcp. Tuesday morning she strode over 1600m in 1.53.60 and 24.60 last 400m. Excellent each way bet.

Like the way that Tres Vite handled the step up in class at her second start, beaten a head behind Vain Attracion. Trained on nicely since, looks a live chance in the Taralye Hcp, 1100m. Tuesday morning she worked over 800m, stopping the clock at 52.47 and 24.45 last 400m.

Value runner for the day is Light Brigade, in the Dystrophy Australia Plate, 1600m. Two runs back from a spell have been acceptable. The step up in distance is what he's looking for, he can turn it around here. Ticking over nicely on the training track, still probably a run short, however, he should represent good odds on both totes. Tuesday he worked with Turnitup (also engaged in this), they worked over 1200m in 1.19.90 and 23.80 last 400m.

The Mick Price trained Red Eclipse should go very close to breaking his maiden status on Friday night at Cranbourne in the De Bortoli Maiden Plate, 1200m. Yet to miss a cheque after 3 attempts to date, 3rd up from a spell and spot on for this race. Tuesday morning he worked over 800m in 53.72, home last furlong in 12.10.

Another Price runner in the mix on Friday night at Cranbourne, is the lightly raced Danish Rock. This lightly raced son of Stratum will face the starter in the De Bortoli 0-72 Hcp, run over 1200m. No world beaters assembled here, he should go close once again. Tuesday morning he strode over 1000m in 1.06.31 and 24.68 last 400m.

The Peter Moody trained Moment of Change would have lost no admirers after a successful campaign up in Sydney, where he contested the feature 3yo Group races with distinction. Stable have probably realised he's a couple of lengths off the best 3yo's going around. Drops back in class, he should run very well in the Hiller's Chocolates Hcp, 1400m. Worked nicely on Tuesday morning, covering his last 800m in 50.51 and 23.43 last 400m.
Sir Fernando is flyimg at the moment, stringing together two impressive wins in a row. This is his acid test, should roll forward from barrier 14 and sit on the pace. Winning form is good form! Tuesday morning he worked over 1000m in 1.04.52 and 25.15 last 400m. Spot on for this assignment.

Sheila's Star, from the Mick Price yard, should be in the mix again when she steps out in the Embracia Hcp, 1400m. Last start win was full of authority, skipping away to a widening 3.3L margin. Trained on a treat since and will give backers a run for their money. Tuesday morning she worked over 1000m in 1.04.22, 24.95 last 400m and 11.79 last furlong.

One to keep an eye on is the former Queensland trained galloper Sister Havana, now in the hands of Stewart Webb. Has a touch of class on her day and has been in work at Caulfield a while now. Monitor market moves in the Lagoon Sherbert Bomb Hcp, 1100m. Trialled well in a recent jumpout, flies fresh, having won twice from for attempts in the past. Could represent good value on both totes.
La Praline's run first up was acceptable in showcase company, holding on for 3rd, beaten 3.5L. Worked well on Tuesday morning with Kulgrinda over 800m, clocking 50.50 and 35.60 last 600m.

Once again, Kulgrinda looks perfectly placed to figure prominently. She'll be very hard to beat in the Zaidee's Rainbow Hcp, 1000m. Comes in very well at the weights, shouldering 54.5kg after the claim. Trained on a treat since, will get the run of the race from barrier 2. Tuesday morning she worked over 800m (with La Praline), clocking 50.20 and 35.60 last 600m.

Testa My Patience is renowned for producing second up, his form reads 3 starts for 2 wins and a 2nd! Perfectly placed and a live chance in the Zaidee's Rainbow Vic Hcp, 1400m. Wasn't pushed too hard on Tuesday morning, where he strode over 1000m, clocking 1.06.28 and 24.25 last 400m.
Faster Son also had a light workout over 1000m, running even time and 24.39 last 400m. Under The Eiffel is cherry ripe and will also run a very good race here.

Shewan ran a huge race first up, and railed nicely over the comcluding stages, just failing to grab 3rd place on the line. Back in magnificent order this time in and definitely one to keep following over the coming months, victory is not far away! He is 2nd up in the Le Pine Funerals Easter Cup. Tuesday morning he worked over 1200m in 1.19.80 and 36.60 last 600m.
King Diamond is the fitter of the two and gets his chance to score an overdue win. Tuesday morning he worked with Almodova over 1600m, clocking 1.56, 50.80 last 800m and 24.50 last 400m. Fit enough if good enough.

Really like the way the Mick Price trained galloper Fast And Free is going at the moment. Yet to miss a place from 4 attempts to date, progressive type who looks a nice each way bet in the Amelia's Story Hcp, 1700m. Tuesday morning he strode over 1400m in 1.40.29, 23.89 last 400m and 11.68 last 200m.

The reports from the Price camp are excellent, regarding Samaready's progress leading into the Golden Slipper stakes, the world's richest 2yo race. She had her last hitout on Tuesday morning, worked home the last furlong in 11.49. Spot on for the feature, she's the benchmark 2yo of the season and the one they all have to beat again.
