Race 5 2:55pm MEYER TIMBER NSW BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1600m
GOLDEN FEIMA was a winner on a heavy 10 two runs back and only got clear late at Wyong last start. Just needs even luck in-running to make amends here.
TRINITY RIVER was runner-up in successive races before having no luck at Wyong last start when never clear. Just needs luck in-running to be right in the finish.
LOIRET is chasing back-to-back wins after a maiden victory at this track and distance last start. That was the confidence booster she needed and she’s set to go on with the job here.
ANOTHER SNAPPY was way too good for a benchmark 70 field at Canberra last time out, winning by over seven lengths. Harder here but no doubting the authority in the last win.
SELECTIONS: No 11 GOLDEN FEIMA, No13 Trinity River, No9 Loiret, No7 Another Snappy
Race 6 3.35pm BROADWATER INSURANCE BROKERS CLASS 1 HANDICAP 1000m
CALABASAS resumes on the back of a Gosford trial win. Form in three runs in his first preparation is good enough for this including a Newcastle Beaumont maiden win. Looks ready to go fresh.
SUPER TOO resumes and has trialled well on two occasions leading into this. Canberra winner on debut before finishing on the placegetters’ heels in the Reisling at Randwick. That's a solid form reference for a provincial race.
BALBOA PARK resumes and was recently placed in his latest trial at Warwick Farm. Didn't fire in three runs last preparation, but the trials suggest he is in for an improved campaign.
SIR MAGIC resumes on the back of a Gosford trial placing. Wyong placed before a soft win in a Muswellbrook maiden in his two runs in his first preparation. Have to respect the stable.
SELECTIONS: No 4 CALABASAS, No11 Super Too, No14 Balboa Park, No7 Sir Magic
Race 7 4:10pm HUME DOORS & TIMBER CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1200m
SUGAR BAY LEONARD has always had a wrap on him after placings in metropolitan races both runs in his first preparation. Was too good for the maiden field at Gosford last start when resuming. Looks capable of working through the grades and is a winning chance again.
CLEVEDON BAY resumes on the back of a Wyong trial placing. Impressive winner only race start to date at Gosford. Looks right up to winning this fresh.
HOLLYWOOD MISTRESS was easy in the market before being well beaten at Hawkesbury last start. Defeated a subsequent winner to win her maiden at Hawkesbury two runs back and is set to bounce back.
EMBLEY was well beaten at Eagle Farm last start, but previous three runs on Sydney metropolitan tracks were certainly good enough for a race like this.
SELECTIONS: No 6 SUGAR BAY LEONARD, No8 Clevedon Bay, No9 Hollywood Mistress, No1 Embley
Race 8 4:50pm WALKER BROS TIMBER & BUILDING SUPPLIES BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP 1100m
EXPRESS POINT has hit a purple patch of form, winning successive races at Gosford. Only up 1kg on last win and nothing to suggest she cannot win again.
ELITE HONG KONG is a winner at this track and distance three runs back and was close up in two runs since, including a Canterbury third last start. Just needs even luck in-running from the gate to be right in the finish.
MICHELLE'S GIFT had no luck finishing on the placegetters’ heels at Grafton resuming last start. Worth noting, she was a Gosford winner second-up last preparation and rates as one of the chances here.
CHARGE OF LIGHT has been close up in last three outings. Is a winner this track and distance and goes in all the exotics.
SELECTIONS: No 8 EXPRESS POINT, No14 Elite Hong Kong, No7 Michelle’s Gift, No11 Charge Of Light
