Star jockey John Allen primed for a big day at Terang with six strong rides

Form analyst Gilbert Gardiner hopes to get punters off to a big start to the week with all the good oil from terang on Monday.

BEST BET

CAKE WALKER

R5 No. 1 $3.60

Nice win at Kilmore two starts ago, then just ran out of time at Warrnambool after closing sharply in soft conditions from back in the field. Big weight to deal with but the rails draw should see her get a nice run in transit.

NEXT BEST

FIZZAR

R2 No. 8 $3.20

Five-start maiden was only nabbed late last start at Donald. Has a wide draw (13) to contend with but should only be better for the run.

SANDBANKS

R6 No. 1 $3.30

Not beaten far first-up at Ballarat when eighth, 2.1 lengths behind Revlis, and was a winner second-up last preparation. Drops in grade and proven at the distance.

VALUE BET

BRASH SAMMY

R8 No. 3 $8

Ex-NSW galloper making Victorian debut for trainer Liam Howley. Drawn out so needs to be used up early to find a position, but on best form should be right in the finish.
