Race 1 1:04pm ROTARY FOUNDATION 2YO MAIDEN PLATE 900m
SERENA BAY has trialled the best of these coming into this. She looks to be blessed with speed and should take running down.
LOVESPEED GIRL trialled well enough in quick time, Freedman seems to have plenty of “babies” up and running and they must be respected.
LEGAL GIRL has the advantage of barrier (1) here and has been well educated at the trials for a debut run.
AFRICAN RAINBOW is also down to run at Rosehill, but looks to be much more suited here.
SELECTIONS: No 7 SERENA BAY, No 6 Lovespeed Girl, No 4 Legal Girl, No 2 African Rainbow
VALUE RUNNER: No 6 Lovespeed Girl.
Race 2 1:39pm INTERACT ST MARYS CLASS 1 HANDICAP 1200m
4 – KALVENA
8 – YOUR WITNESS
1 – SEA SHARP
5 – TOO QUICK FOR YOU
Race 3 2:14pm ROTARY PHILIPPINES PROJECT MAIDEN HANDICAP 1200m
KHAKI (NEXT BEST) gets the blinkers off for his first-up run here. His form in his first preparation was fantastic and was only a few lengths off Foxplay on debut. From barrier (8) he should cross them and lead them a merry dance here and prove hard to run down.
SELECTIONS: No 1 KHAKI, No 3 Constantine, No 4 Native Luck, No 9 Smart Miss.
VALUE RUNNER: No 3 Constantine.
Race 4 2:49pm R C OF ILLAWARRA SUNRISE PRESIDENTS RACE BENCHMARK 75 HANDICAP 1600m
ZEE ZEELY (BEST ROUGHIE) returns after two solid trials leading into this and looks well prepared here. These international horses seem to improve at their second preparation and this looks one who could do that.
HUNTER JACK was good at Randwick on cup day and has found a weaker/winnable race here.
HALBERD drops well in weight here and was quite good last start, the winner had good form lines and that should measure up here.
ASSERTIN MISCHIEF is down to run Friday night, but has to be respected if running here.
SELECTIONS: No 2 ZEE ZEELY, No 1 Hunter Jack, No 4 Halberd, No 3 Assertin Mischief.
VALUE RUNNER: No 2 Zee Zeely.
Race 5 3:29pm SOUTHERN IML PATHOLOGY MAIDEN PLATE 1600m
Race 7 4:44pm AMBIENCE DENTAL WITH PEARMAN AND SAAD BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP 1400m
CANNOT BE SERIOS (BEST BET) was good in a better race than this last start, he drops back from Wednesday grade here and the form out of his debut win at Hawkesbury has been outstanding. Sugar Bay Leonard who beat him at Canterbury is down to run this week too, so we will get a good guide in that formline before this. All things being equal, if he turns up, he wins this race.
SELECTIONS: No 4 CANNOT BE SERIOS, No 8 Mauzel, No 6 Alert By Sea, No 2 Swift Code.
VALUE RUNNER: No 2 Swift Code.
