ARBEITSAM (BEST BET) resumes as a gelding here and comes off one previous run where he started favourite at Newcastle and was beaten by Awoke, who went on to be a player in some of the better Group races over the carnival. The trials leading in have been quite good and he should be winning here.
SELECTIONS: No 1 ARBEITSAM, No 6 Argie Bargie, No 5 Northwest Passage, No 2 Golden Road.
VALUE RUNNER: No 2 Golden Road.
Race 2 1:55pm WWW.TAB.COM.AU MAIDEN PLATE 1000m
INVINCIBLE GEM (NEXT BEST) resumes here after two strong trials coming into this which were both run in quite good time and he looked very stylish. At his first two career runs he was good seconds in both of those races. Avdulla jumps on board here and from gate (10) he should jump and get a good run just behind them.
SELECTIONS: No 9 INVINCIBLE GEM, No 11 Second Step, No 5 Caisson Platoon, No 4 Australia Justice.
VALUE RUNNER: No 11 Second Step.
Race 3 2:35pm GREAT NORTHERN ON TAP AT WRC MAIDEN PLATE 1350m
VICTIME DE L’AMOUR (BEST ROUGHIE) has been good in two runs this time in. The step up in distance should suit him as on debut he was strong over 1400m.
SHALLUCK gets winkers on for the first time here and was good on debut behind Never Out. He should take a lot from that experience and be a chance.
JUST DREAMING was good at Beaumont fresh. She finds a good race here and the step up in distance is suitable.
SENSACOVA was quite good in the same race as Just Dreaming last start. I have to trust that form-line here.
SELECTIONS: No 7 VICTIME DE L’AMOUR, No 4 Shalluck, No 9 Just Dreaming, No 11 Sensacova.
VALUE RUNNER: No 7 Victime De L’Amour.

MR MAGPIE has trialled well coming into this. He was a winner on debut at the track and he looks to have furnished from the spell and looks to be a major player.
OAKFIELD COSTA won well on debut at Kembla. The race was run in a fast time and should hold up well. This looks a good target at his second start.
CLARO EL BANCO won a Magic Millions race as a 2yo and has had a stable change between preps. The trials have been good enough and if he finds his best he could blow them away.
YARRAPOWER gets a good jockey change here and his form is better than it reads. I’m happy to give him another chance.
SELECTIONS: No 1 MR MAGPIE, No 2 Oakfield Costa, No 3 Claro El Banco, No 7 Yarrapower.
VALUE RUNNER: No 3 Claro El Banco.
