Bello Beau @ 19/20

Race 6 Hobart

Dimaggio @ 16/5

Race 6 Canterbury

Louis January @ 16/5

Race 5 Mackay

Beau for Guineas glory

There's plenty of recent winning form on display ahead of the sixth at Hobart. The race in question is the 1600m Tasmanian Guineas. A soft 5 track is forecast for the feature with a field of nine set to go to post.

Royal And Tough has won each of his last three starts including over course and distance in a Benchmark 62 contest.

That triumph came on a good 4 track and the gelding is set to tackle soft going for the first time here.

The blinkered Russian Roni impressed when winning over this trip by three-and-a-half-lengths on his penultimate start. That victory came in a Benchmark 64 event and he duly followed up dropped to 1400m at Sandown Hillside.

The return to this distance should prove no issue but a draw in eight may prove more problematic for the front-runner.

Bello Beau is the selection to deliver a seventh win in nine career starts. Unbeaten in three starts this spell, the pick impressed upped to 1400m when winning by four-and-a-half-lengths last month.

Had his rivals here Jaguar Stone and Sharma's Last back in third and fourth in the Steve's Liquor 3YO Trophy at Launceston that day.

Adam Trinder's charge has shown a liking for this track in the past winning his first two starts here at two.

Jockey Brendon McCoull knows the son of Brazen Beau well and having drawn the rail the pair are selected to make all the running.

Dimaggio to double up

Unrelenting is likely to prove popular with punters ahead of the sixth at Canterbury. Gary Portelli's charge has placed on two of his four starts so far this spell.

The most recent of those placed efforts came when third over 1600m at Warwick Farm. That effort came in a similar race to this, a Benchmark 72 contest.

The slightly shorter trip here should prove no issue while the five-year-old has shown form on soft going in the past.

Trainer Kim Waugh does well at this venue with a 28 per-cent strike-rate (5/18) here in the last 12 months.

Waugh saddles course and distance winner Dimaggio in this competitive eleven runner contest.

That course and distance victory came at this level on a good 4 track last month. The pick has won on the forecast soft 5 track already this spell when triumphant at Kembla Grange in September.

While the Deep Field gelding made all last time out, he doesn't have to race from the front. With that in mind a draw in nine shouldn't prove too much of an issue.

The booking of Nash Rawiller is a positive here and Dimaggio looks capable of completing a course and distance double.

Louis for Mackay success

The fifth at Mackay is an interesting 1560m Class 6 contest. The race is set to take place on a good 4 track with Magnetic Drive the current favourite.

The four-year-old filly has placed second on both starts this spell including over 1300m here first up. before she contested a four runner Benchmark 65 contest over 1200m at Rockhampton subsequently.

Freshened since that effort, she has to prove her stamina at this distance. Louis January is preferred in this contest with the six-year-old looking the main pace angle here.

Jared Wehlow's charge won twice over further last spell including in a 2000m Benchmark 65 event at Townsville.

While yet to win on his first start back it's of note that he finished a close third over this course and distance first up last spell. 

That effort came at Benchmark 70 level and given the pace situation here he is taken to provide jockey Ashley Butler with a winner.
