BEST BET: Race 4 No 1 GOHARDONHULA
Has returned from a spell in fine fashion and will look to make it consecutive victories here today. Led and proved too slick for his rivals on this track last start and will be in for a long way. Drawn to get the run of the race. Top Pick.

No 11 WHONICKED DE LOLLY Resuming from a spell but showed ability last preparation to be a leading contender in the opening event of the program here today. Drawn perfectly. The one to beat.
No3 MAGIC ALLIANCE
No2 LAST SPIN
No7 MY COUSIN STEVE
No6 RUSTIC PEARL Has trialed impressive leading into this and looks to have plenty of early toe to cross the field from the awkward barrier draw and settle near the speed. Will give them something to catch and looks hard to beat back in this grade.
No 11 HI MY GIRL
No 12 MS WICKED NICCI
No 10 CRACKAVIEW
No9 FASHION TICKET Very unlucky not to get the victory at Port Macquarie last start when storming home from the tail of the field to miss by a length without much luck in the straight. Looks to have found the right race to breakthrough for its maiden victory here today.
No1 MY LUCKY EAGLE
No 11 LIGHTNING DASH
No2 TAKEN IN
No1 GOHARDONHULA (BEST BET) Has returned from a spell in fine fashion and will look to make it consecutive victories here today. Led and proved too slick for his rivals on this track last start and will be in for a long way. Drawn to get the run of the race. Top Pick.
No4 ON MY TERMS
No2 MISS PARKIN
No3 MR DE NIRO
No1 BRIGHT LIGHTS BABY Ultra consistent mare that won well last start and will be hard to beat with the perfect gate draw here today. Proved too good winning by 2.5 lengths at Lismore last start when settling near the speed and proving too good in the straight. Has the form. The one to beat.
No8 TEO TORRIANTE
No9 GYPSY WILD
No1 ARLETA Ultra consistent mare that’s yet to miss a place from her four starts to date winning one in the progress at Armidale a month back. Sticks to her preferred distance and will be in this for a long way. Clearly on top.
No2 RIVA ENCORE
No4 MENNEKE BELLE Good win last start when coming home strong from a mid-field position to win by a length at Port Macquarie and can go on with it now. Has a superb record over the track and distance and sure to be rattling home late. Ready to win again.
No6 SUPER SHOES
No3 DREAM HABIT
No5 MY COUSIN JACKIE
No7 MANHATTAN ROAD Looked the winner only to be run down in the last few strides on this track a fortnight ago and can atone for that defeat here today. Has drawn wide so will look to cross and lead the field rounding the first bend. Win wont shock.
No4 THE SKRILL
