Tomorrow night sees the running of the Retravision-Marathon Handicap. Get the all important last word from all the key players on the 10 race card.

RACE 1 – RETRAVISION, FOR ALL THE ELECTRICAL STUFF YOU LOVE PACE
1.Greg Bond (Be My Rock): “Came through Monday very well. Expect him to be in the finish.”
2.Michael Grantham (Power And Grace): “Love this horse. Don’t think the one will hand over to Alta Blues. So we can go straight in behind the one or be in the one-one. I think we will get a good run either way.”
3.Kyle Harper (Medieval Man): “Big step up in class but has been racing well and has place claims. Will be good to see how he handles the rise in grade.”
4.Gary Hall Snr (Alta Blues): “Can win. I just didn’t want the one to draw where he did. We will probably have to sit outside and try and beat him.”
5.Shannon Suvaljko (Caveman): “Racing very well in the country this time in. Draw makes it tough but he’s hitting the line so well at the moment.”
6.Matthew Scott (Miracle Max): “Needs the pegs. Draw hurts.”

RACE 2 – RETRAVISION LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE
1. Kyle Harper (Im Johnny Jet): “Racing above his grade but has the barrier to suit. Will be driven with a sit but not impossible to hang in for top four.”
2. Michael Brennan (Sangue Reale): “He will probably find the front pretty easily I would’ve thought. He will run a very good race on Friday night.”
3. Aiden De Campo (Baylan Jett): “Racing well. Definitely a first five player again.”
5. Gary Hall Snr (My Carbon Copy): “Going alright. Hard to see him winning. Draw isn’t good for him. I think the two will get an easy lead and win. With a nice run he can be dangerous.
6.Shannon Suvaljko (A Boy Named Rosie): “Thought it was his race last week. Bad draw but he will run on.”
7. Dylan Egerton-Green (Machs Gold): “Tricky draw but is racing well. Needs luck. He will be driven off speed early and look to get home.”
8. Ross Olivieri (Space Junk): “Needs the run. The barrier hurts. Rough place chance.”
11. Nathan Turvey (Jack William): “Coming to hand nicely. Better on speed but he might find it hard to get up there.”

 

RACE 3 – RETRAVISION 60 DAY PRICE PROMISE
1. Ross Olivieri (Queen Shenandoah): “Ran very well last week. She will take a power of beating.”
2. Ross Olivieri (Madame Meilland): “Will be hanging around looking for an opportunity to jump in. She won’t cross the one but she will be handy.”
5. Dylan Egerton-Green (Our Perkins): “Going well. Will be getting home well and doing his best work late.”
8. Michael Grantham (Bob Wheel): “Going to be hard. Not sure what to do.”
9. Nathan Turvey (Ultimate Offer): “Horse is going well. The draw is tricky but he’s in good form.”
11. Gary Hall Snr (Our Rhythm N Blues): “Rough each way chance. It was a surprise he won so easily last week.”
12. Gary Hall Snr (Mister Bushido): “Same again. Rough each way chance.”

RACE 4 – SHOP ONLINE AT RETRAVISION.COM.AU PACE
1. Aiden De Campo (American Delight): “Racing really well and gets a great draw. Should lead and be hard to beat.”
3. Nathan Turvey (Carter Micheal): “Even draw. Can run a place with even luck.”
5. Gary Hall Snr (Undercover Mac): “Threw him in but he’s out of his depth. I think the one will lead and win.”
6. Matthew Scott (Twentynine Twelve): “Racing well but it’s a bad draw.”
7. Matthew Scott (Qtown Rip Roaring): “Racing without luck. Knock out chance.”
8. Gary Hall Snr (Tuas Delight): “Looks hard for him from the draw.”
9. Gary Hall Snr (Robbie Easton): “Each way chance if they go hard up front.”
10. Greg Bond (Captain Kirk): “Good barrier draw for a top four finish with some luck.”
12. Gary Hall Snr (Extreme Prince): “Don’t know if he can win. He’s definitely a better front runner. Rough place chance.”

RACE 5 – SAN SIMEON PACE
1. Greg Bond (Patronus Star): “We are pretty happy with him. We won with the draw. Hopefully he can lead all the way.”
2. Nathan Turvey (Rakasinc): “Interesting one. Gets keen in the run and you have to let him roll. Broke the track record last Saturday night. We will drive him to his strength.”
3. Gary Hall Jnr (The Verandah): “Can place with some luck early.”
4. Aldo Cortopassi (Art Tutor): “Going well. Will just have to keep doing what we’ve been doing with him and he will run his normal honest race.”
5. Aiden De Campo (Major Shard): “Racing well but is in a good field here and has a poor draw.”
6. Ross Olivieri (Just Wing It): “I think he relaxed a bit last week. Gone back to the gear I had on in the start prior. See how it goes tomorrow.”
7. Ross Olivieri (Boom Time): “Trickier draw. He will sit back again. Good effort last week. Don’t see why he won’t improve.”
9. Michael Grantham (Affluent Bell): “We will go back and rail up and hope the gaps come.”
11. Dylan Egerton-Green (Starlight Brigade): “Look to get the most economical run. Racing well.”
12. Michael Brennan (Woodlea Ragnar): “It’s a good draw for him. I would’ve preferred 10. He’s going to end up four back on the rail. He probably should’ve won the Higgins if he’d have been able to get out.”

RACE 6 – RETRAVISION MARATHON HANDICAP
2. Greg Bond (Twilight Saga): “Needs to step and get a soft trip. Hope he can be top five.”
4. Matthew Scott (Perlee Gates): “Will run 3300. Need an economical run. Place chance.”
5. Greg Bond (Donegal Art Chokin): “Distance won’t bother her. If she can step well she will definitely be in the finish.”
8. Michael Brennan (Rebel With A Grin): “Extremely disappointing last start. We’ve screwed him right down. He copped a fair bit of work this week. Hoping for marked improvement from him.”
12. Michael Grantham (Forgotten Highway): “A lot will get tired here. Don’t think he will be one of them. I think he’s my best and will be hard to beat. He will get away fine.”

RACE 7 – RETRAVISION YOUR FUJITSU SPECIALIST FILLIES & MARES PACE
1. Greg Bond (Starlight Destiny): “Good draw for her. Gets her chance to win a city race.”
4. Michael Grantham (Countess Grace): “We will go forward. She’s quick out and we will assess our options.”
6. Ross Olivieri (Salacious Gossip): “Whatever she does she will improve on.”
7. Ross Olivieri (Just Makemine Diamonds): “Trials have been very good. I don’t believe the lead time in her last trial. She’s in this race up to her ears.”
8. Gary Hall Jnr (Blissfulabbey): “Racing really well and a good each way bet.”
9. Dylan Egerton-Green (Nowuseememsmile): “When she draws to follow one she will run in the money.”

2. Matthew Scott (Always Arjay): “Disappointed last prep. Has had a throat operation. Will need the run.”
3. Michael Grantham (Golden State): “Been told he’s flying. He’s very quick and very versatile. His trial last week was good.”
4. Gary Hall Snr (Just Rockon Bye): “I think the one will lead and win so she’s only a place chance.”
5. Greg Bond (Our Alfie Romeo): “Working well at home. Hope she finds the line.”
6. Greg Bond (Courage Tells): “Driven for luck and hope the breaks come his way.”

RACE 9 – RETRAVISION YOUR ONE STOP ELECTRICAL SHOP TROT
4. Michael Grantham (One Bid Buys): “Very consistent. What you see is what you get. Place hope.”
6. Nathan Turvey (Tenno Sho): “He will give this a real shake. Push forward and keep running is how he likes it.”
7. Ross Olivieri (Mr Sundon): “Probably the ones to beat. Punters shouldn’t disregard the eight as he trialled well on Sunday. Will leave it up to Chris whether he sits, does work or gets the lead.”

RACE 10 – ZIPPAY IT AT RETRAVISION PACE
1. Dylan Egerton-Green (Bletchley Park): “Really nice horse. Trialled well since last start. Definite top two contender.”
2. Aldo Cortopassi (Convert Denario): “Last one will run the gate. Will be better for the run and go well.”
3. Gary Hall Snr (Fake News): “Tough ask for her. Put in and see where she is at. She will go well and go straight to the rail.”
4. Michael Grantham (Chiaroscuro): “We will have to play it smart to run second to Bully again.”
5. Gary Hall Snr (Ideal Liner): “Straight to the rail. He’s improving with every run.”
6. Gary Hall Snr (Chicago Bull): “He will go straight to the breeze. He will have this run and then the August Cup before a month off.”
