Hawkesbury for the big Rowley Mile meeting, this race usually gives us a pointer to some of the better races in the spring. We have 8 races in the card here. The rail will be in the true position and the track is good.

No5 GREATER GOOD was solid enough fresh at Scone and should be much fitter here. Form around Tulip and Jorda is good enough.
No4 UNDERGROUND has been trialing up well enough, and will appreciate further than this. But the stable is in form.
No3 SUGARLAND EXPRESS has been going quite well and deserves a win and Shinn will give them something to chase.
No2 ITASCA comes out of the same race as Greater Good and should be respected.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 ITASCA
No5 CATESBY (NEXT BEST) comes out of a good race last start in which we have seen the form hold up already. Super Ex has since won on a Wednesday. The 1300m here suits and I expect Avdulla to take the race by the scruff of the neck.
No1 THE AVENGER was very good on debut in what looks to be a good race, and should run well again.
No4 BADGE OF GAMENESS comes out of good races on debut behind two nice horses and the trials have been good.
No9 STAR OF THE SEAS has been doing a good job at the trials and should run well on debut.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 STAR OF THE SEAS
No4 COSMIC POWERS
No1 POSTMASTER GENERAL
No3 LATIN BOY
VALUE RUNNER: No1 POSTMASTER GENERAL
No4 MISTY LAD has been trialing up quite well coming into the fresh run. He was good enough to start $10 in the Breeders and should be respected.
No1 CATMOSPHERE (BEST ROUGHIE) comes out of two very good form races at the first two starts and has been trialing well.
No6 ARGEMONE has been trialing well coming into the fresh run and draws a soft gate.
No9 RAPID FEET has improved with each trial coming into the debut run and should be respected.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 CATMOSPHERE
No9 KEY TO GLORY
No10 SAN MARCO
No13 MILANESE GIRL
VALUE RUNNER: No10 SAN MARCO
No5 CRAFTY TYCOON
No4 HAV A NIP
VALUE RUNNER: No4 HAV A NIP
No4 ARBEITSAM (BEST BET) keeps on stepping up and keeps on belting his opposition. Back from the 1800m to the 1600m is no issue. He is the leader here and will roll along, and if he gets an easy enough time of it in front. They won’t see where he is at the 100m.
No2 KINEMA resumes, we didn’t see his best last prep, but on a dry track he can run well fresh.
No5 KINGSGUARD got all the luck last start and won, winning form is good form.
No3 ELLE LOU has been going well enough and she gets on well with Glyn.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 KINEMA
No5 SUGAR DANCE
No1 SEEKING AFFECTION
No4 ARROWS DESTINY
No3 TOKYO KING
VALUE RUNNER: No4 ARROWS DESTINY
