Race 3 - (1800 METRES) - THE HUN - 4th. Trainer: Tony McEvoy.
There was plenty to like about the return of this stayer who'd only had the one prep and was last seen winning a maiden in Geelong last April. Ridden back from the wide gate, Currie threaded a passage through to power home late. In at the right time of the year in Melbourne where he'll be warm as the depth falls away in the distance races.
Race 7 - (1300 METRES) - TARWIN - 2nd. Trainer: Michael Kent.
We're starting to see these horses from Melbourne Cup winning stallions make an impression and Mick Kent has a handy 3yo by Americain here. Beat the useful Firsclass Dreamer on debut comfortably before being tipped out and this was a strong return run against the pattern which he wins if he draws a gate. Stick with him.
Race 2 - (1000 METRES) - GARRISON - 2nd. Trainer: Peter & Paul Snowden..
Eased out of the early speed and smacked the line late. Just the way he's come off the bit on the corner, I'd be shocked if he didn't get 7-8 furlongs and the breeding backs that up with his dam (who had ability herself) being out of the strong European bred producer Park Esteem who's the dam of 2 individual listed winners, both past a mile....
