🎀 : TOO MUCH TRIFLE (1) was ultra-impressive when placed on debut at Geelong and is drawn to lead throughout today. ENAMOURED (3) was a good thing beaten here last Tuesday and she is expected to make amends, while the classy UFORO BALE (4) looks very well graded today and he should be making every post a winner.

🎀 : WOBBLY BOOTS (2) caught the eye last Tuesday and I think she is one to watch once she rises in distance, however with the speed drawn inside today, she does appear suited and should be able to run home into the money. MOTH ROCKS (2) is flying at present, and he will be on the pace from the outset. ROBIN’S CHOICE (2) has turned in some great performances of late and a top-two finish looks likely.

The Watchdog says 🎀: Four-time Group 2 country cup champion FERDINAND BOY (1) should be making every post a winner. SWEET EMILY (4) can show early speed, but she can also hit the line well, so with an ounce of luck in running, she should be able to finish in second or third at nice odds.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎀:

We get to see the great FERDINAND BOY (1) go to work and he is expected to light up the clock this afternoon. After capturing the Group 2 Warrnambool Cup, he carved out a blistering 25.62sec to chalk up career win number 44 at Geelong as he pursues a half-century of victories. He has won six-of-eight this track/distance and will be skinny odds, so punters might want to anchor him up front in their exotic bets. SWEET EMILY (4) is the likely danger for mine. She has always done her best racing here and she has the ability to lead or come from off the pace in her races, so with a clear passage early, she can take home some minor money. TOOLONG TIGER (6) is racing with great confidence at present, and he needs to be respected, while the speedy SINFUL ANGEL (3) can work the champ over in the first 250m before she gets tired.
