NORTH-EAST WRAP: Midnight’s Timely Return

This week’s wrap of racing in Victoria’s north east started with a good quality program at Bendigo on December 4. The most impressive winner on the day was Cut Loose Max. A graduate of the 2014 Ready to Race Auction series he has been an astute buy having competed in the Geelong Cup and contested a heat of the Melbourne Cup as well. Last Friday he bounced back to his devastating best running a fast 27.96 in winning easily. Now he is back in winning form expect him to win again.

WATCH: Cut Loose Max (5) bounced back to his best with a brilliant front-running display at Bendigo.   The other win of note was that of Midnight Flynn (pictured - courtesy Paul Munt) for Mick Carter. Having his first start since August, he overcame a slowish start to bolt in recording the fast time of 23.77. A winner of 15 of 37, he looks to have returned from his spell in terrific form and can go on and have a great campaign. On to Healesville Sunday and I was really taken by the win of To Dee Rhythm on debut. Jumping fast, she won easily scoring by three lengths and running nice time (16.78), but she was strong at the end of the race to suggest that there will be more wins in store. She might develop into a nice short course sprinter in time as she has loads of toe early.
WATCH: To Dee Rhythm (3) scores an eye-catching win on debut at Healesville, where she returns Sunday in 16.78sec.   The other impressive win came up in Race 6, Amlin Prince. Trained by Gerrie Sneyders, he has now four of 10 including three of his past four. The penny has dropped and he has been particularly good so it might pay to follow this guy as he progresses through his classes in the next few months. We headed to Shepparton Monday night to wrap up the week and clearly the win of the night was that of Duomo Bale in Race 9. He pinged the lids from Box 5, exploding away in a sizzling first split of 6.52. His performance wasn’t just sheer speed though, as he gripped on late holding off West On Teddy, who had his chance to run down Duomo Bale. He ran 25.16 which was a clearly the best time of the night, too. He has won 16 of 40 and just over $32,000 in prizemoney for trainer Tom Mitchell.   LATEST RESULTS  
WATCH: Duomo Bale (5) shows brilliant early pace in his all the way win at Shepparton on Monday in a Best of Night 25.16sec.
