Here’s a look at Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane Quaddies for Wednesday! Good luck!

Sandown

5-Class 1 (1500m)

Best: Legend Of Zorro – went back from a wide gate and finished off strongly last start. Four runs into prep’ and this distance looks perfect.

Jumbuck – dug deep, after a three wide run to win here last start, rails draw and Jamie to ride.

Tycoon Bucks – blinkers went on and dominant win at Ballarat. Cantered to them at the 300m and then put them to bed pretty quickly.

Knife’s Edge – tough run when faced the breeze three wide at Pakenham. Not far away, didn’t shirk and slight drop in distance can work.

Numbers: 3, 1, 12, 5.

6-Benchmark 64 (1800m)

Best: Kanzai – third-up now and this lightly raced mare is starting to put it all together. Followed Geelong Mdn win with fast-finishing third here, after slow away.

Magnossiva bridesmaid at past four starts, nicely in with the claim.

Sign Seal Deliver – ran some nice races, against quality opposition, when last in work. Has jumped out and capable of racing well fresh.

Numbers: 10, 6, 4.

7-Benchmark 64 (1000m)

Best: Dynamic Duo – resumed and went back to last from a wide gate at Ballarat. Worked to the line well, fitter and can be closer from the good alley.

Toorak Warrior – no surprise he was slow out with 66kgs last start. No urgency after that and closed off well for second when the race was over.

Kootara – huge run at Kyneton. Circled the field from near last at the 600m and went via the cape on the home turn. Gets a positive jockey change for this.

Harlem Blues – first-up since November and also gelded. Has had two Flemington jump-outs, slow away latest before picking up and working to the line strongly.

Numbers: 4, 3, 9, 2.

8-Benchmark 64 (1300m)

Best: Mr Raikkonen – found a lot of rumps when jock got a little lost at the Valley. That was first run since September, fitter, second-up winner and positive jockey change.

Hot In Paris – no luck finding a run here last start and just failed to nab Need New Friends. Down in grade and 2kg claim brings in well at the weights.

Stretto – had good three-year-old season and is first-up since July. Placed twice when resuming and should be hitting the line hard.

Charleise – not far away in Saturday grade when second-up. Should be close to peak now and 1,5kg claim ensures she is well in.

Numbers: 8, 11, 5, 6.

Gosford

4-Benchmark 72 (2600m)

Best: La Grisa – gave many of these windburn at Warwick Farm last start. Like most she’s a query at 2600m, but her win over 2200m was dominant.

Savvy Valentino – has finished second this track and distance. Was seventh to La Grisa, when jock stuck to the fence, which was a no-no. Gets T. Clark this time and capable of improvement.

Space Is Deep – was a bit one-paced when fourth to La Grisa, Waller and J-Mac combine, a grinder so extra distance may suit.

Numbers: 1, 8, 4.

5-Maiden Plate (colts & geldings, 1100m)

Best: Kalashnikov – two brilliant trials and then first-up run was more also more like a barrier trial. Snowden’s put the colt in a race where he was out of his depth. He was beaten 3lens by Shaquero before a spell and that stacks well for a Maiden.

Raoul – placed two career starts and the Godolphin gelding drops back from 1300m, which may have been a touch far last start.

Double Ex – first-starter has trialled well and early money suggests has some ability.

Numbers: 7, 6, 3.

6-Maiden Plate (fillies & mares 1100m)

Best: Our Lancette – unraced but five trials under her belt, super impressive in two Randwick trial wins this prep. Showed good gate speed and cruised home under her own steam in both.

Attribution – placed all four starts and gave her all in each. First-up since November and had plenty in hand in Kembla trial win. Godolphin/J-Mac sure to be in the mix.

Drummin – fitter for first-up run when nabbed on the line at Hawkesbury, can only be fitter.

Numbers: 8, 1, 5.

7-Benchmark 72 (1600m)

Best: Flexible – won last two starts on wet tracks and latest gapped them at Randwick. Steps-up to the mile for the first time and gives the impression she will be even better suited.

Champagne Vega – won only two starts this prep at Canberra, Bowman, one alley are big plusses.

Foxborough – rolled along at a decent tempo and battled for third at Canterbury. Drops in class and Berry has had a feel of him now, so could settle better.

Sky Diamonds – should be nearing top now after three runs this prep. Latest worked home okay at Kembla and will run the mile out strong.

Numbers: 8, 7, 6, 10.

 Ipswich

5-Class 3 (fillies & mares 1350m)

Best: Iamican – impressive wins two runs this prep. Slow away, worked to the lead and was tenacious here last start.

Pure Indulgence – not a noted early performer so with two runs behind her she should be ready to fire. Led in race won by Chauffeur, drops in class and will be on the bunny.

Red Bloom – won here then second in tougher grade. She was a long way back and flew late at 1200m, so extra distance is ideal.

Love Yers All – good win here last start when jock took off early and horse just kept going.

Numbers: 1, 4, 3, 2.

6-Class 3 (1350m)

Best: Emma’s Jet – got too far back at Doomben when third to stablemate Xanthus. Closed well, blinkers should help switch her on and she is a winner this track and distance.

Jakarma – benefitted from a great, rails hugging, ride when won here last start at 1200m. Failed five goes this trip is a concern.

Rains Aplenty – second to Chauffeur last start, fitter for the first-up run and no one rides this track better than jockey Jim (Byrne).

Numbers: 1, 3, 7.

7-Benchmark 65 (1666m)

Best: Octavian – didn’t get a lot of luck at the Gold Coast. Too far back in fast run race then trouble getting clear running in the straight. Well weighted after claim for in-form apprentice.

Stuck With You – her Grafton win was super impressive and she has won here and mile is no problem.

Liara – three fair runs from a spell and worked home over 1350m last start. Gives the impression the mile will suit and Waller-trained.

Ready’s Girl – no threat, but closed well behind Chauffeur here last start. Third start for Anderson yard and looking for this distance.

Numbers: 1, 3, 9, 5.

8-Benchmark 62 (1200m)

Best: Captivated – went down in a photo after tough three wide run at the Gold Coast. Ticks some boxes here with claim and can box seat from barrier two.

Axe – resumes led 1000m trial at Gold Coast and cruised home. First start for Costa, up from Sydney gelded, nice horse and they like a bet.

Supersonic Boom – jock overdid it when dragged back from a wide alley. No hope when too far back on the turn before hitting the line late. Jockey upgrade with Rodd jumping on and has won here.

Norm’s Choice – led here and won in dominant fashion here last start, but did beat an ordinary lot.

Numbers: 4, 1, 5, 6.
