RICHARD OF YORKE has his first start for Waller in Australia here and has trialled well enough for this. He is 2/2 first up in his career and should be hard to beat.
BON EQUUS backs up quickly after last week and drops well in grade here. There was solid support for him in a much stronger race last week and has to be given a chance.
BOGIE should be ready to go third up here. The step up to 1600 looks ideal and he is a chance.
STROKE OF EIGHT hit the line powerfully last start. The form has held up well since that race and he looks to get conditions to suit here.
SELECTIONS: No 1 RICHARD OF YORKE, No 4 Bon Equus, No 3 Bogie, No 7 Stroke Of Eight
Race 6 2:59pm BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1400m
CAPTAIN PLANET drops well in weight off his last run where he hit the line well. This looks to be a weaker race and he has to be considered.
MIDNIGHT RIDE comes out of a good race last start where the form has stacked up well. He has won all his races on his home track and after the claim he will be hard to beat.
ZAUNKONIG won well last start and could go on with it here as he has always looked to have above average ability.
MAN OF COLOURS has a great record at the course and distance. He finds Paul King here who rides Kembla quite well and will be thereabouts.
SELECTIONS: No 2 CAPTAIN PLANET, No 12 Midnight Ride, No 8 Zaunkonig, No 5 Man Of Colours
Race 7 3:39pm MAIDEN PLATE 1400m
LIGHTNING STREAK has trialled well in preparation for a debut run and has to be given a chance here.
ANKARA LASS comes out of what looks to be a good race last start at Goulburn. She gets the winkers for the first time in an effort to sharpen her up.
REFERENCE has been in good form this preparation and on his home track he gets another chance to break through.
PASS OF GOLD comes out of a good maiden race last start and has to be given a chance.
SELECTIONS: No 7 LIGHTNING STREAK, No 5 Ankara Lass, No 4 Reference, No 10 Pass Of Gold
Race 8 4:19pm CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1300m
CHAVISH gets blinkers for the first time here and has been going quite well this preparation. He comes out of a stronger race than this and should be winning.
FLY FORWARD has been in really good form this preparation and finds a winnable race here. After the claim he is well weighted.
DUVET has a host of gear changes here and has been running really well this preparation. He is another who is well weighted after the claim.
PUZZLING WONDER has been running in better races than this during his preparation thus far. He gets in well after the claim and has to be given a chance.
SELECTIONS: No 1 CHAVISH, No 4 Fly Forward, No 5 Duvet, No 2 Puzzling Wonder
