Australian Racing: Bay ready to break his maiden at Mornington

There are three meetings set to take place on Tuesday, including at Kembla Grange where the prize money stands at over $300,000 on their eight-race card.

Race 7 Kembla Grange

Allasandra @ 4.80

Race 2 Mornington

Aspiring Bay @ 5.50

Race 3 Chinchilla

Jack Be Lucky @ 2.10

Allasandra could prove irresistible

The penultimate race on the card is an interesting Class 1 handicap contest.

A soft 5 track is forecast for the 1400m event, with Resistible expected to have her supporters having shown good form in four starts this spell.

While the filly has failed to win in those outings, she has delivered three placed efforts, including twice at this venue.

The second of those course efforts came when beaten just under four lengths when racing at this level in a 1300m event on a heavy 8 track on April 26th.

The three-year-old acquitted herself well at Randwick Kensington when a length fourth over the same distance when racing at Benchmark 68 level subsequently.

A wide alley here is an issue given she likes to race close to the pace and ALLASANDRA is preferred on this occasion.

Trained by David Payne, the filly belatedly broke her maiden when coming home nearly one-and-a-half-lengths clear of her rivals having raced from off the pace in a 1350m maiden at Wyong.

That victory came on a heavy 10 track, but she has performed well on quicker ground in the past, including when third on a good track at Randwick Kensington first up this spell.

An inside alley should give jockey Tom Sherry options with regards to tactics aboard his mount and Allasandra, a daughter of Pride Of Dubai, is taken to complete a double.

Bay ready to deliver the win

Vanburgh Castle has plenty of solid placed form to his name and is expected to jump as favourite for the second race at Mornington.

The 2050m maiden has attracted a field of 10, with the Brent Stanley-trained gelding stepping up in trip following a second over 1800m on a soft 5 track at Horsham at the end of last month.

However, with 10 runs to his name without success he looks opposable, with preference for the Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young-trained ASPIRING BAY.

The pick failed to shine in his one barrier trial over 990m, but showed a marked improvement with the extra distance when runner-up over 1629m at Werribee in a maiden plate on debut.

That Werribee effort came on a heavy 8 track prior to finishing down the field when seventh of 11 over 1760m at Geelong subsequently.

The son of Preferment was beaten just under three-and-a-half-lengths at Werribee and, while slowly away on both starts to date, he is expected to appreciate the step up in distance here.

Jye McNeil, on board last time out, keeps the ride and he can steer the gelding to a first victory.

Jack looks Lucky for Chinchilla bid

Chinchilla stages a seven-race card, with the third race of the day a 1200m Class 3 handicap contest set to take place on a good 3 track.

While JACK BE LUCKY has failed to score in two starts this spell, he has acquitted himself well on each occasion - including when runner-up over 1100m at Toowoomba at the end of last month.

That effort came when racing from the front in an 1100m Class 4 handicap contest.

The pick has a good alley on the rail here, with apprentice jockey Landan Sykes taking a valuable three kilograms off.

The step up to 1200m is no issue, having won over this trip in the past, and the Holy Roman Emperor gelding is taken to salute for the fourth time.
