LOUD ENOUGH (NEXT BEST BET) was strong winning at Wyong over this trip last start. He carries the same weight as he did on that occasion and would have taken plenty of benefits from that performance. He’s the one to beat again.
SELECTIONS: No1 LOUD ENOUGH, No4 Miss You Ma, No7 Crimson Halo, No2 Meishou.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 Meishou.
R2 1.55pm DEBORTOLI WINES 3YO MAIDEN HANDICAP 1100m
HIMALAYA FLYER is on debut here for the Waterhouse stable. He trialled nicely at Rosehill and Randwick recently and looks to have plenty of ability. The horses with exposed form don’t look the strongest, so he should be in the mix.
BANUELO had every chance here last start when not beaten far and she looks the best of the raced ones.
SEBRARIAN is from the same stable as our on top selection and the recent trial was also good. The 2kg claim puts him right in the mix.
ENRICO was fair on debut and would need to improve to play a part in this race, but he is drawn nicely.
SELECTIONS: No1 HIMALAYA FLYER, No5 Banuelo, No2 Sebrarian, No3 Enrico.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 Enrico.
R3 2.35pm XXXX GOLD MAIDEN PLATE 1200m
DEADLY SHADOW (BEST BET) resuming for a new trainer and has plenty of ability. He trialled well over 1000m at Gosford and looks the one to beat first-up with 59kg.
SELECTIONS: No2 DEADLY SHADOW, No3 Samar More, No4 Latitude, No7 Lewinski.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 Lewinski.
VENCEDORA (BEST ROUGHIE) never far away and has been freshened-up since his last run and recently trialled well at Hawkesbury. This doesn't look overly strong, so he should be hard to beat.
SECRET WEB resuming here and has won first-up before. He has to carry 60.5kg, but it does look a suitable option.
STRADANCE won a weak race at Gosford on Melbourne Cup day. She is two from two at the track and distance and should be full of confidence despite the tougher opposition.
TILBURY LODGE is drawn nicely in barrier (1) for his first-up assignment. He’s placed first-up before, but would need to improve from his recent trial.
SELECTIONS: No4 VENCEDORA, No1 Secret Web, No3 Stradance, No5 Tilbury Lodge.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 Vencedora.
R5 3.45pm ALLOURA WATERS RETIREMENT VILLAGE MAIDEN HANDICAP 1600m
HOSTWIN VINTAGE raced wide the trip and battled on well at his second start. From the better barrier and getting out to the 1600 metres he looks well suited.
MY MISS PEDRILLE also was a bit unlucky here last start. She looks the leader from barrier (1) and is sure to give a sight.
STREET COMIC looks to have plenty of ability but has only been fair in both runs. With slight improvement, this is a winnable race.
SACRED PEAK will race with only 54kg due to the claim. She’s drawn nicely in barrier (3) but does need to show improvement.
SELECTIONS: No1 HOSTWIN VINTAGE, No 7 My Miss Pedrille, No4 Street Comic, No8 Sacred Peak.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 Sir Douglas.
R6 4.20pm FORRESTERS BEACH RETIREMENT VILLAGE CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1600m
BAROQUE GIRL should get an easy lead here and be the one to beat. She was just beaten last start at Kembla Grange over this trip and this looks a much easier race.
JAYZOU has been close up in all runs this time in and no problems at the 1600m. With the lack of depth in this race, it’s her best chance to bring up her second ever victory.
CELTIC DIAMOND is ready to improve after two runs back from a spell and she is a winner at this track and distance.
SPANISH PRIDE resumed in a stronger race at Randwick and put in a fair performance. This is much weaker and from barrier (1) he should get the perfect run in the race.
SELECTIONS: No2 BAROQUE GIRL, No3 Jayzou, No5 Celtic Diamond, No1 Spanish Stride.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 Celtic Diamond.
R7 4.55pm INTERIOR CONCEPTS MAIDEN HANDICAP 1000m
GOOD TIME CHARLIE returns after having two runs last prep and trialled fairly. He’s only one of a few with exposed form.
ORIENTEX won a recent trial in nice time and looks to have plenty of ability.
SHALLUCK is drawn perfectly in barrier (2) for his debut. He trialled only fairly, but should get the run of the race.
NEVER OUT is drawn nicely in barrier (4) and won a recent trial at Gosford.
SELECTIONS: No5 GOOD TIME CHARLIE, No2 Orientex, No1 Shalluck, No7 Never Out.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 Daytime Dancer.
R8 5.35pm ALDI ERINA FAIR BENCHMARK 69 HANDICAP 1000m
FLY FORWARD resuming has an excellent first-up record. He recently won a barrier trial at Randwick so is sure to be primed for this assignment.
SKY MISSION has plenty of pace and will be much fitter after a good return at Queanbeyan. He has a nice barrier here and has won second-up before.
DUTY DUDE improved dramatically from his first trial to win his most recent trial at Rosehill. He has a strong first-up record and should get a nice run from barrier (6).
EXCEED THE MOON won at the track and distance last start. He should take plenty of confidence from that performance but does have to overcome barrier (12).
SELECTIONS: No6 FLY FORWARD, No1 Sky Mission, No3 Duty Dude, No8 Exceed The Moon.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 Sky Mission.
