The big question =   Who runs the 1200 right out .
On Mid race sectionals Ennis Hills holds all the trumps ..    Matched it with the Lightening early sectionals ( different tracks )but noticeably dropped off the final 200m..       That extra 200 sorts the wheat from the chaff.
Long Leaf should improve big time with his easy first up win .
Praire Fire   was dominant in his lead up. Quick back up.7 days .
Enbihaar, Written By , Oohood were on slow time tracks.

   Take yr pick ,,,       back the overs lol

Your omen bet is surely Kinky Boom Macca Smile. Or possibly Long (fig)Leaf if we look back to your younger days?

   Don't be too tough on the mid race sectionals.   Some surprises at times and Ennis Hills really scorched in the mid stages and won so well.
Praire Fire proven at the 1200 has to be the other overs in the wide open race.
I note rain is about Melb. from Thursday . My ( Climate change) know how says 80% chance of rain on Saturday and if so ..    the latter 3 mentioned come into it.
   It is some race aye.

I noted the 2400 winner from well back down the outside rail ...    Keeping the inside section in good order for Saturday I expect .    
Cliff Carey used to say = when the rails are out   >>   Keep out .

I only had an interest in one race today ....

The good gallopers ignite the real interest ..   Hope the weather stays OK for the meeting Sat.

good luck all.

Prairie Fire will win the Blue Diamond.

Reasons.

1: Track a little slippery. This horse takes short fast strides, has a real turn of foot. Fast shorter strides suit slippery surface.

2: Barrier 1. Will run about 15 metres less than most horses.

3: In form, 3rd start.

Prairie Fire will hug the rail, dash through at the hometurn, and win going away, at around $10, is very very good each way value.

Total moral to run a place at $3 in my opinion.

The heavy support made a saver a must ...   Did it at both ends so off to the Slipper I hope.     Great ride on Prairie Fire (4th) he had his chance , but the final 100M sorts them out.

I can't believe the price She Will Reign .   has she lost a leg ???
