Assessment:

Although Box Hill has been held by Labor in the past, they didn't hold it at all during the Bracks/Brumby years, indicating that the seat has firmed up for the Liberal Party over the last couple of decades. As such, Box Hill would probably be just out of reach for the Labor Party unless they were to perform exceptionally strongly.
