Australian Racing: Electric Impulse to show Bendigo spark

There’s plenty of racing action for punters to get involved with on Sunday including eight race cards at Bendigo, Sunshine Coast, Port Macquarie, Coonamble and Warrnambool.

Race 3 Bendigo 

Electric Impulse @ 3.80

Race 3 Port Macquarie 

Cirebon @ 4.00

Race 8 Warrnambool 

Warlist @ 2.90

Impulse for Bendigo glory

The third race on the Bendigo card takes the eye with the 1400m Benchmark 64 handicap having attracted a field of eight three-year-old-fillies.

A heavy 8 track is expected for the event with Galeka expected to have her supporters having returned to form at Pakenham last time out.

The filly was a heavy track maiden winner at Geelong in September last year but had disappointed twice subsequently prior to a second over 1200m on a soft 7 surface a month ago.

The return to a wet track appeared to help that day following a heavy defeat in a similar race on a good 4 surface at Pakenham prior. 

Henry Dwyer’s ELECTRIC IMPULSE is preferred on this occasion however having shown good form on a heavy track in the past.

While the filly has made just the three previous racecourse appearances she has shown a liking for heavy surfaces including when winning a 1200m maiden at Warracknabeal in October.

The daughter of Cable Bay was spelled following that effort and she showed she can be competitive at this level when third in a 1200m Benchmark 64 event at Ballarat on 28th May.

Finishing strongly from off the pace on that occasion John Allen’s mount shaped as if a step up in distance would suit and she is taken to double her career tally racing second up. 

Cirebon for Port success 

Trained by Kris Lees, CIREBON has delivered a couple of good efforts from four starts since breaking her maiden by a head over 1200m at Port Macquarie in November last year

The filly returns to Port Macquarie for the third race of the day, a 1500m Class 2 handicap set to be run on a good 4 track.

Cirebon has shown good form in placing second in Class 1 contests on each of her last two starts including when beaten thee length over 1400m at Gunnedah on 28th May.

The extra 100m the selection tackles here shouldn’t prove too much of an issue and she looks up to registering the second win of her career. 

Warlist for Warrnambool triumph

The last race on the Warrnambool card is a Restricted 58 handicap set to take place on a heavy 10 track.

The 1400m contest sees Buoyant make his first start since a down the field effort on a good 3 surface at this track in January.

Spelled following that effort he had won over 1800m in a maiden at Casterton on a heavy 8 surface earlier that spell.

The gelding carries top weight here and may find the concession of weight to WARLIST too much.

The selection has placed on two of his last three starts including when beaten just under two-and-a-half-lengths over 1628m in a Restricted 58m handicap at Moe last time out.

The six-year-old was one of a number who delivered strong finishes having raced from off the pace that day and he should have no problems with the shorter distance in this contest.

Jackie Beriman’s mount has shown a liking for wet tracks in the past and the Warhorse gelding looks up to scoring from a good alley four off the rail.
