Melton Race 9 - APG VIC GOLD BULLION (3YO COLTS & GELDINGS) FINAL (GROUP 1)

Brilliant gelding CATCH A WAVE (5) has been a class above when scoring easy wins in both starts since a spell, cruising home by 14m in his heat at Bendigo last week. That took his overall record to eight from nine and he is unbeaten at the circuit and the distance. Gets his lowest draw of the campaign so far and it is hard to go past him. KHAFAJI (1) won well fresh before coming from a wider draw to place behind Catch a Wave. Won his only previous third up attempt so will be peaking and does get the benefit of the ace draw. LOCHINVAR JAG (10) has led to win his last two in good fashion. Tougher from this draw but winning form deserves some respect. LIGHTNING DAN (9) is a first four hope.

Last start good run when 3rd (Fr6) over 1650m after showing early pace at Bendigo, beaten 15 m by Catch A Wave (1:55.10) in 3yo CG on May 5 at $4.80. Two runs back won by 5 m as favourite after showing early speed, (Fr3) at Maryborough (2:40.80) beating Bring Back Leah in NR 53 to 63 on April 22 at $1.04. Could threaten from this draw.

Needs to find his best.

Looked good last start. Won by 13 m as favourite after showing early speed, (Fr7) at Bendigo (1:55.10) beating District Attorney in 3yo CG on May 5 at $1.25. Two starts back won by 11 m as favourite after showing early speed, (Fr5) at Hamilton (2:34.50) beating Elegant in NR 56 to 71 on April 18 at $1.40. High class and very hard to beat.

Didn't do much last run, 5th (Fr5) over 1650m after showing early speed at Bendigo beaten 11 m by Lochinvar Jag (1:56.90) in 3yo CG on May 5 at $12. Before that 4th (Fr2) over 2100m after showing early speed at Geelong beaten 11 m by Spot On (2:32.80) in NR 53 to 63 on April 14 at $2. Others read better. This will test.

Racing consistently with minor placings at his last two starts. Placed last start 2nd (Fr2) over 1650m after showing early pace at Bendigo, beaten 7 m by Lochinvar Jag (1:56.90) in 3yo CG on May 5 at $7.50. Before that 2nd (Fr3) over 2080m after showing early pace at Cranbourne beaten 1.1 m by Machane Said (2:37.80) in 3yo on April 24 at $1.25. This looks too tough.

Three-year-old colt is racing in fine form. Won his last two outings at Bendigo and Charlton. Last start won by 7 m as favourite when quickly away, (Fr7) at Bendigo (1:56.90) beating Racing Time in 3yo CG on May 5 at $3.30. Recent form hard to fault so deserves some respect.
