No4 ALASSIO (BEST BET) has been trialing in impressive fashion coming into a debut run here. She has been a winner of all three trials dating back to this time last year. Gai has given her plenty of time to mature and coming to Kembla on debut is a move Gai has used for nice horses in the past.
No6 SIMPLY IMPRESSIVE has been trialing in good order leading into a debut run and looks to be the exacta horse here.
No7 BOLLY comes out of a super-hot race on debut behind Tactical Advantage, the trial coming in was ok enough.
No3 COLOANE was ok enough on debut in a weak race and should improve at start two on his home track.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 BOLLY
No6 SAINT JEROME
No3 CRIMSON HALO
No5 DRIPPING CARATS
VALUE RUNNER: No2 MAGENTAZ
No1 BOMBARDIER (NEXT BEST BET) has been trialing in good fashion coming into the debut run here. There is not much to this race and he looks to have them covered. From gate 1 with Johan on board, he should take the running and beat them.
No2 DREAM I CAN is busting to win a race and unfortunately has run into what looks to be a good horse.
No8 THRILLED is well bred and comes out of a good race on debut, he takes on the older horses here. But has his chance.
No9 ZATAR comes out of a good race on debut and has trialled up well enough coming into this.
VALUE RUNNER: No 8 THRILLED
No6 JAUNTY (BEST ROUGHIE) is a well bred filly who has been trialing up in good fashion coming into the debut run, she looks to have plenty of upside.
No7 SILENT SEA loves to fill a placing and has been running well in ok enough races as of late and she draws a soft gate here to run well.
No9 DIXIE takes on the older horses here, but comes out of what looks to be a solid enough midweek 2yo race.
No4 DREAMSHIP has trialled up in good fashion leading into a debut run here. From gate 5 she should roll forward here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 JAUNTY
No4 MACKELLAR’S LOVE has really good form around her and is a winner at the track in the past. No idea who the jockey is however.
No3 IT’S A NEW DAY resumes here and comes out of good races at his first preparation, no trial coming in for a horse from Gwenda’s stable has me wary.
No2 DEER MOUNTAIN comes out of a good race first-up at Scone behind Cadogan, the step to 1200m now looks ideal.
No6 TOO FAST FOR LOVE has been ok enough in recent races. The step to 1200m third up now is perfect.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 TOO FAST FOR LOVE
No5 DUCHESS PEDRILLE
No1 ANKLE TAP
VALUE RUNNER: No1 ANKLE TAP
No1 POWER LAW
No2 CALIFORNIA WISDOM
