Canterbury - Race 4 2:35pm AEST

No. 2 And We Danced

And We Danced strips fitter for three runs back and looks set to peak now with Hugh Bowman remaining in the irons.

The Kiwi import got a little wayward down the straight at Randwick last start where she ran on for fourth, a performance she can improve on with a good gap between runs and some sting out of the track.

She’s got a class edge over some of her rivals here having raced at Saturday grade and she does look the rightful favourite.

No. 6 Write The Score

Write The Score is a likely improver second-up following a forgive run at Morphettville a few weeks ago.

The daughter of Written Tycoon made up some ground from midfield but just lacked the extra polish in the finish when fading late for sixth.

She’s a proven performer at this stage of her prep with two wins on the board, and she draws to get a lovely run in transit with the class of Damian Lane in the saddle. A win on soft going only strengthens her claims.

No. 1 Highly Desired

Highly Desired won by three lengths over a similar trip at Warwick Farm last start and he only needs to hold that form to be a real factor here.

The old boy trained by Tyler Schiller led all the way to score in similar heavy conditions, and he goes around in similar grade here in a race lacking real depth.

Apprentice Tyler Schiller has won on the eight-year-old in the past, and from the soft draw, they should have no trouble finding the front.

Geelong - Race 6 3:20pm AEST

No. 5 Battaglia

Battaglia is attempting the distance for the first time, but he does appear to be working towards another win.

The five-year-old son of So You Think finished only half a length off last Saturday’s Moonee Valley winner Spanish Tides at Cranbourne where he stuck on well in the finish.

He’s got the added benefit of decent wet-track form on his resume and this does look a slightly easier race.
