No3 MISTRESS MACE (NEXT BEST BET) has been trialing well leading into the debut run here, and looks to have been well set up for the debut run by Bjorn, he draws a good gate for Lever here and should be getting the career off to a perfect start.
No1 FOXTROT TANGO comes out of a good race on debut and was quite good there, he has been trialing well coming into this.
No2 KEY TO GLORY is a well bred commodity and should be much improved coming into the second racing prep.
No4 BOUNDING BADGER looks to be next best on the home track.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 KEY TO GLORY
No3 STATELY LORD comes out of a better race than this last start and should be winning, no worries with the distance as he broke his maiden over 2360m. This is a weak race.
No1 KADOMA MAN was ok enough last start with the big weight when running second, big 7kg weight swing in his favour here.
No2 PIRELLONE was the winner of that race last start and does go up well in the weights here, but finds Hutchings which helps.
No5 CHAVIN has been looking for this distance and now finds it and has a chance to win.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 PIRELLONE
No4 YOU MAKE ME SMILE (BEST BET) has been very good in winning both races this time in at Nowra, she has been placed to get that confidence up and she has been doing so down in Nowra, this is a good race placement for her and she should be winning again.
No1 WEEKEND AFFAIR has been quite good this time in and comes through some good enough races and has a chance.
No6 CELTIC LOVE resumes here and has trialled well enough leading into this.
No5 ENTERPRISE MOUNT looks to be next best here in a race which drops away.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 WEEKEND AFFAIR
No2 AEECEE TIANHU should be much fitter for the first-up run and, from barrier 7 he should jump and run them along and be too strong.
No4 SO STRONG (BEST ROUGHIE) bumped into Addictive Nature on debut and was just ok there. Spelled since then and the trials have been good.
No6 CAPPAMORE has been trialing well coming into this and brings a strong SP profile that should be respected.
No9 UNWISE was off the map last start, and wasn’t too bad there, the form has stood up since then.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 SO STRONG
No4 CHIEF COMMAND has been trialing ok enough leading into this, 1200m on debut is usually quite tough, but most of these are on debut.
No12 NOW OR NEVER was a touch disappointing fresh, that came after a good run in the Gimcrack. She has race fitness on her side and has a chance.
No10 FIGHTING FAITH has been trialing well enough coming in and should run well on debut from the soft gate.
No3 CHARM OFFENSIVE should be respected on debut at the home track, after a good trial.
VALUE RUNNER: No10 FIGHTING FAITH
No6 ORIENTAL RUNNER won well fresh for the new stable, he came out of some good races in the first prep and should run well here.
No2 FIGTREE drops well in grade here after an ok enough run last start and out to 1200m suits.
No7 GAYTIME GIRL resumes here and brings solid enough form here and gets in well after the claim.
No1 WALSHIE has been a touch disappointing as of late, getting beaten at Orange. He gets a soft run on the map here.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 GAYTIME GIRL
No5 NATHULA has been in quite good form this time in and finds a winnable race, and only needs to overcome the gate to be in the finish.
No3 OH SO UNFAIR was quite good fresh, and is a winner second-up in the past, 1500m suits.
No9 ROYA’S DREAM won well last start over the T&D, only up 1kg and she should run well.
No2 LUNAR SPIN was good enough fresh and has had a trial since then and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 OH SO UNFAIR
No4 KUNG FU MASTER should run well back onto a bigger track here, as he was good here on debut.
No2 CALIFORNIAFIREBIRD gets a soft run on the map here from barrier 1 and was good in a solid race last start.
No1 ART OF MORE was solid enough last start in a Wednesday maiden and should run well here.
No10 PICCATA gets the blinkers on at the second start here and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 ART OF MORE
