Race 6 Canterbury

Captain Amelia @ 6.00

Race 6 Caulfield Heath

She’s Bulletproof @ 4.40

Race 6 Doomben

Hell And Back @ 4.40

Captain for Canterbury success

The sixth race at Canterbury is an interesting 1250m Benchmark 72 handicap, with Briasa set to put his unbeaten record on the line.

The gelding has delivered victories at Kembla Grange on both previous outings, including when debuting with a win over 1200m on a good 4 track early last month.

The three-year-old proved that wet tracks were no issue for him when following up on a heavy 8 surface over the same distance subsequently.

The son of Smart Missile came home over a length clear of his rivals in a Benchmark 64 handicap last time out, however, he looks opposable in a more competitive affair.

CAPTAIN AMELIA is the pick on this occasion, having demonstrated that she goes well fresh when winning first up in both previous preps.

The selection won by a narrow margin when contesting a Benchmark 64 handicap at Gosford in August last year.

The filly was highly-tried in four of her five subsequent starts that prep, including when a good fifth in the Group 1 Darley Flight Stakes over 1600m at Randwick.

The youngster was beaten under two-and-a-half-lengths on that occasion and she drops in grade having ended that prep with a Listed eighth at Flemington.

John O’Shea’s representative has the services of James McDonald here and, dropping back in distance, she looks up to defying a wide alley to return with a win.

Bulletproof for Caulfield glory

They race on the Heath course at Caulfield with the sixth race a Benchmark 64 handicap for three-year-old fillies.

Nikki Burke is set to saddle Light Wish in the 1200m contest, with her representative arriving here on the back of an impressive debut success.

The daughter of Written Tycoon came home five-lengths clear of her nearest pursuer when contesting a 1000m maiden at Cranbourne at the end of last month.

However, jockey Craig Williams will have to negotiate a wide barrier if she is to follow up, and preference is for SHE’S BULLETPROOF for the Charlotte Littlefield team.

The selection broke her maiden by a narrow margin when contesting a 1200m event on a soft 6 track at Mornington in December.

The youngster jumped at short odds that day, having debuted with a good second over the same distance at Moonee Valley the previous month.

The pick was freshened following that effort and has placed on both subsequent starts, with the first coming in the Off The Track Sprint down the straight at Flemington.

Blake Shinn takes the ride for the first time here and with a good barrier his mount is selected to double her career tally.

Hell for Doomben glory

In the sixth race at Doomben, HELL AND BACK takes the eye as he seeks his second career success.

The three-year-old broke his maiden when odds-on for an 1110m contest held on a soft 6 track here last month.

The selection had previously lost out by a narrow margin, when runner-up in a course and distance maiden when racing first up this prep.

While unable to complete a double when contesting a Benchmark 65 handicap over 1200m here last time, the gelding acquitted himself well in finishing fifth.

The pick was beaten just over a length on a good 4 track that day, while apprentice Tahlia Fenlon’s three kilogram claim is a positive here.

Trainer Tony Gollan is a regular visitor to the winners’ enclosure and his representative can provide him with a winner in this event.
