Jockey Jason Maskiell has an excellent chance to continue his good form aboard the superbly-bred mare Thoughtful Harmony at Moe.
Maskiell, who is based near Moe, has notched nine wins from his past 36 rides and has six good rides on Thursday. Herald Sun form analyst Michael Manley reckons Maskiell can back up his win on Thoughtful Harmony at Moe last start with another victory.
THOUGHTFUL HARMONY (R6, No.6)
Superbly-bred mare who has been given plenty of time by Peter Gelagotis being by So You Think out of former star mare Special Harmony. She’s got a lot of upside judging by her four-length maiden win at this track and distance last start.
LATEST BETTING: TAB FIXED ODDS
SHAKE ON IT (R5, No.9)
Lightly-raced gelding showing promise. Drawn out but should be suited by the 1628m after his last-start second behind Tour Down Under over 1462m at Kilmore.
CITY CHAP (R1, No.2)
Son of High Chaparral who is improving with racing. He has finished second at his past two starts on wet tracks at Pakenham over 2000m. Step up to 2446m should be ideal.
SHAMINO (R7, No.4)
Didn’t fire when he went to Sydney last start when fifth of five at Rosehill Gardens when he over-raced in the early stages. Go on on-speed win this track on a soft surface in this class over 1000m at his previous outing.
