Kembla for the Saturday provincial meeting in NSW. We have smallish fields here, with Newcastle also being on Sunday. Eight races, with the 2yo event an intriguing one. Pretty sure this is the race She Will Reign flogged them in last year. Track good, Rail true.

No4 CHILLI BEAUTY has been working well towards a win this time in, this is a weak race and the last two starts should win this.
No2 JUST A JOKE has trialled in good enough order coming into this, the last of which behind Fabrizio was quite good.
No3 FUNKY MUSIC found the line well enough first-up and gets the blinkers off here.
No5 GOLD DRAGONESS looks to be next best and should pick up $1380.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 JUST A JOKE
No3 FAKE has had two strong trials coming into the debut run leading in. Bred to be a star and should run well here.
No2 COSIMO has been trialing in very nice fashion leading into the debut run and the claim suits here.
No1 COACH comes out of the same trial as Fake leading into this and should run well here.
No4 NUKE trialled well at Canterbury leading in. Well bred colt who should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 COACH
No1 STEALTHY (BEST BET) was very good on debut on Melbourne Cup day. He ran right through the line there and can improve at the 1000m at his second start here. He drifted in the market on debut which was weird considering how he ran. This is a weak race he should be winning.
No2 OLIFANTS has been trialing well coming into the first-up run here and should run well.
No5 IBANEZ has been going well enough as of late and should fill a placing again.
No6 WOOSHKA comes out of a good race on debut where he started a short SP and has trialled well.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 OLIDFANTS
No7 FOXDELL has been good in both starts coming into this and should run well.
No1 CHAPPIE has no first-up form, but the stable is going well and the trial was solid.
No3 HALLIDAY ROAD comes out of country level, but doesn’t find the strongest of races.
No4 STONE COLD won well when resuming at Wagga and has good form, wouldn’t mind L Marlow screaming “Stone Cold Stone Cold” if he wins for old school wrestling fans!
VALUE RUNNER: No3 HALLIDAY ROAD
No3 SAVATIANO (NEXT BEST BET) has track bias against last start at Canterbury and still ran quite well. The win first-up was quite arrogant with a lot of improvement to come from that run. She gets the blinkers on for the first time here and in a weaker grade than last start, she should be winning here.
No6 KOONUNGA has been trialing in good fashion leading to the fresh run, and should run well
No1 PECANS found the line well when resuming for the new stable and should enjoy the drop in grade.
No8 ROYAL CASINO looked as if he would have a lot of improvement from the yard fresh and still ran well there.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 KOONUNGA
No5 BULL MARKET has been working towards a win this time in and has been going quite well.
No6 ONLY CHOICE won in good fashion at Canberra last start, the claim here for Heywood helps him.
No9 REGINE found the line well fresh, she will appreciate further over time. But the open spaces of Kembla help.
No4 ULTRAMAN has been trialing in good order leading into the fresh run and the maiden win last prep was good.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 ULTRAMAN
No1 VICTIME DE L’AMOUR drops well in grade here, and was well backed in a Saturday race last start. He just has to run up to that to go close here.
No8 KURNEL JAXON has done a good job at winning the past two, and the step to 1600m suits.
No4 CALIFORNIA WISDOM gets in well at the weights after the claim here for Heywood and third-up looks ready.
No5 LIGHTNING NIC did a good job when winning last start and stays in this grade yet again.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 LIGHTNING NIC
No9 RIGHTEOUSNESS (BEST ROUGHIE) has trialled well coming into this, and being by So You Think will love the 1300m on debut if not further.
No7 LUCK’S FORTUNE has trialled in smart order coming into this, and the betting moves should be watched.
No3 THRILLED has let punters down at the last few starts and will probably be short again, have to take him on.
No2 SNITZEL DAY was quite good on debut and should be further improved for that.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 RIGHTEOUSNESS
