Love Me Baby (Race 4, No.5) looks a city-class filly so should win again in this company.
One debut she bolted in a Canberra and John Sargent gave her a little freshen, presumably with spring in mind given she has a Thousand Guineas nomination. She has trialled up very nicely at Randwick since.
Carlton have now lost nine in a row and they were extremely poor against Brisbane last week. Melbourne on the other hand have won three in a row for the first time in a decade, just reward for four weeks of good form which kicked off with a six point loss to West Coast in Perth.
Carlton, well below their best in the last two weeks, are there for the taking. Melbourne are a much better side than Carlton, in much better form, and have the Blues covered in every part of the ground.
