Newcastle on the Beaumont track is our Saturday provincial meeting in Sydney. We have eight races on the card, and can't complain about field sizes due to restrictions of the rail position which is +3m 800m to 400m, True remainder. Track is currently soft, but we may get to good come race day.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)

Best Roughie: R1 – 4. ESEMPIO
No 4 ESEMPIO (BEST ROUGHIE) traveled 3-4 wide when winning well at Swan Hill, well weighted after the claim.
No 1 CELEBRIS won a weak race to break the maiden, but this is no stronger.
No 5 LEBRON looks the likely leader, but this is a step up from what he has been racing in.
No 7 VINDEX finished off well last start in a race that wasn’t run to suit and has a chance again.
VALUE RUNNER: No 4 ESEMPIO
No 5 SHES DEMANDING
No 1 SOCIAL ELEMENT
No 10 PERUN
No 2 DASHING SPECIAL
VALUE RUNNER: No 10 PERUN
No 3 TIRONE MISS
No 5 FOSHAN
No 1 STRADANCE
No 4 THINK LIKE A BIRD
VALUE RUNNER: No 1 STRADANCE
No 2 REFLECTIVITY (NEXT BEST BET) looks to be well set up for a fresh kill here. His form is much better than all of these, he was well spiked as a 2yo and always seemed as if he would be a better 3yo type. His trial coming in was quite good and if he wants to head to better races, he needs to win this.
No 1 SRPINTING TO WIN has been going well enough as of late and looks to be the main danger.
No 5 STAR OF THE SEAS has been trialing up well enough for the debut run and gets blinkers on.
No 4 MARATHON looks to be next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No 5 STAR OF THE SEAS
No 5 MISSION TYCOON has trialled brilliantly coming into the fresh run here and could run them into the ground.
No 6 ARGEMONE brings good form to this race and has been trialing up well for the fresh run.
No 2 OUR ROYAL EGYPTIAN has been letting punters down in both runs this time in, but looks a chance again.
No 8 WIAMEA BAY ran into a good one on debut, and although the margin was big, she was good enough.
VALUE RUNNER: No 5 MISSION TYCOON
No 4 CONQUEST
No 1 STORM FORCE
No 5 EURO GOLD
No 3 DEVIOUS
VALUE RUNNER: No 5 EURO GOLD
No 4 ANIMALIA (BEST BET) absolutely smashed them last start when breaking the maiden. She comes back in trip off a freshen but has had the trial since where he looked to go quite well. I think he is a cut above this lot and can win again.
No 1 STATIC LIFT has been good in both runs this time in and finds a nice enough race.
No 3 NO ESCAPE won well at Forbes on Cup day, this is a step up but there was some arrogance in the win.
No 5 WALTZING WILLIE has been going well enough and is a chance again.
VALUE RUNNER: No 3 NO ESCAPE
No 1 KARAVALI
No 4 NAUGHTY THOUGHTS
No 2 CANBERRA
No 7 SMART AS
VALUE RUNNER: No 7 SMART AS
