Timeform highlight three bets in Australia on Friday

Timeform pick out three bets from Bendigo on Friday...

"...trending the right way at present and a level break should see him tough to hold out."

Timeform on Bons Abroad

#8 Dirty Deeds - Bendigo R7 (06:30)

Dirty Deeds was caught out wide and left with too much to do when second here last time, but he finished strongly, and this step up in trip, along with a clear passage through, should show him to much better advantage and make him difficult to beat. Smokin' Romans has won two of his three starts and is a talented gelding, so is feared most ahead of Antagoniser.

#12 Bons Abroad - Bendigo R8 (07:00)

Bons abroad got his campaign off to a good start when a length winner at Sandown Hillside on return, and he may well have gone in again had he not missed the kick at Sandown Lakeside last time, though he did rattle home for second. He is trending the right way at present and a level break should see him tough to hold out. Hypersonic, who won his first two outings, came up short at Moonee Valley last time, but is returned to calmer waters here and could go well, with There You Are able to battle it out for third.

#6 Elegist - Bendigo R9 (07:30)

Elegist hasn't been the quickest out of the gates in his two runs this term, but he has shown good willingness to finish strongly and make the frame on both occasions. He has won third up in the past so is expected to be bang there after two outings, and a quicker break from the stalls should see him in with a big chance of regaining the winning thread. Beauty Betty is a mare on the up and looks the pick of the remainder, while Winning Red must also enter calculations.
