The Phillip Stokes trained galloper is 2nd up on Saturday. He trialed up exceptionally well at Morphettville prior to his first up run in a benchmark 82 where he put a huge margin on the rest of his opposition. Sizzlefly who we have seen be competitive in Melbourne Metropolitan grade was some 4.8 lengths away in 2nd. Terbium looks to have come back a different horse this time in and with even luck should be very hard to beat on Saturday.
This lightly raced galloper is having her second start of her second preparation. She was impressive in winning her maiden at Echuca before being tipped out for a spell. She got back at Kyneton in her return run before running home in quick sectionals to score a soft win. Trainer Luke Oliver has given her a jump out in between runs and she looks ready to make the step up to city grade.
This 5 year old gelding has come up as the early favourite in race 7 on Saturday. He was able to string together back to back wins to start this preparation at Sandown. Stepping up to Saturday grade last time he looked to have every chance before being collared late by Seberate. He is up in class again here and looks under the odds in a competitive race.
