Melton Race 3 - Irt Australia Pace (2Nd Heat)

CRIME WRITER (8) found form while campaigning in Brisbane and returns to Victoria off back-to-back wins at Albion Park. Drawn to get a nice trail so is a big chance to score again. SOMETHING BETTOR (2) came from a wider draw to win at this circuit three back and only went under by a nose at Bendigo last time. He is a threat from this barrier. The form of DESSIE GEE (4) must be respected with two wins and a second from his last three. Dominant in leading throughout at Bendigo last time and can give a sight. VANQUISH STRIDE (3) is much better drawn than in recent outings so can improve.
