Marksmanship can go right on with it here in the Race – Tech Australia Hcp, run over 2000m. Scored first up for new connections and the hottest trainer at Caulfield presently, Ciaron Maher. Although up in grade, he’s always shown above average ability and drops 5.5kg in weight! Tuesday morning he worked over 1200m, home last 400m in 24.11. One for the multiple punters. Currently $11 - fixed odds markets, representing excellent value on an each way basis.
Talented 2yo colt Red Letter Day resumes racing in the Ascend Trophies Hcp, run over 1100m. Looks to have come back in magnificent order and should run well here first up. Tuesday morning he worked with Tan Tat Sun over 800, clocking 55.04 and 50.50 last 600m split.

Keep following Zeletto this time in, potentially the best horse Luke Oliver has ever trained. Steps up in grade, should measure up. Big wraps also on Royal Snitzel, who worked well during the week. The latter two horses are the ones to follow here.
Running Bull steps up to Saturday grade for the first time, in the Hcp, run over 1400m. Has a touch of class about him and deserves a crack at this level. 3rd run back from a spell, condition wise he’s spot on. Tuesday morning he partnered up with stable mate Belesron, over 1000m, recording a time of 1.07.39 and 36.13 last 600m, excellent work. Try him on both totes.

Jessy Belle will relish the step up to 1400m and should run a cracking race.
The John Moloney trained Such Hope should represent value for punters in the Sheen Group Hcp, run over 1400m. Far from the best horse in the race, however, he’s fit, goes well here, handles all conditions and drops down to 52kg after the claim. Wasn’t out to break records on Tuesday morning, working over 1200m  in even time, never extended. Each way and multiples.

Under The Eiffel can improve sharply here second up, where his record reads 6 starts for 3 wins. He was restricted to pacework on the poly track on Tuesday morning.
The Peter Moody trained Ready To Rip resumes after a 6 week freshen up. Will appreciate the sting out of the ground, flies fresh and should run well here. Tuesday morning he went through his paces over 800m in 55.07.

Le Bonsir is drawn to break his home track hoodoo. Continues to work very well on the training track. Tuesday morning he breezed over 800m in 52.49 and 23.32 last 400m, topping him off nicely.
Bloomingdale Miss looks well placed in the BMW Melbourne Hcp, run over 1200m. Thereabouts last 3 runs and wasn’t out to break any records on Tuesday morning when she worked over 800m in 57.02 and 25.25 last 400m. Should start at each way odds.
