BEST BET: Race 4 No 7 OYSTER BAY
Drawn to get the run of the race and looks ready to fire here today. Beaten by 1.5 lengths at Wyong last start. Has the form to be very competitive here today. Rates well and looks the pick of the program.
QUADDIE PICKS ( 5-6-7-8):
2,3,6,8 – 1,2,3,8 – 1,2,3,7 – 1,3,4,7
No4 GIVEN TIME did enough on debut in a much stronger race than this, T. Angland stays on board, will most likely go back from the barrier but just has to reproduce its debut run and that should be much too good for this lot.
No5 RED CAPTAIN
VALUE RUNNER: No4 GIVEN TIME
No1 MASTERATI looks the class runner here, far from disgraced in a strong race in town last prep before going out for a spell, 1000m not his ideal distance but should suit resuming off a long break, has trialled well enough.
No7 OUR ROSEMAREE
No3 RATHER SWEET
VALUE RUNNER: No7 OUR ROSEMAREE

No1 LIVE AND FREE did a good job when winning comfortably last start at Kembla, looks to have some upside, will sit on the speed here and should prove hard to catch.
