Warwick Farm is our midweek venue this week and we have eight races on the card, with some handy maidens to kick off the day. Overall it looks a solid midweek card and hopefully we can find some winners. Weather has been fine, and we should be racing on a good surface with the rail +5m 1000m – WP, +3m the remainder.

No3 CHARGE showed enough in his first prep, resumes here and looks to find a suitable race, should get a nice run in transit, the one to beat.
No10 GLAMOUR CRUISE pulled up with some excuses first up, finds a winnable race here, will settle on speed and give a sight.
No8 COLOMBINA contested a strong maiden first up when far from disgraced, right in this.
No9 DREAM CHILD racing well without being able to break through, can lead here and give a sight.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 COLOMBINA
No2 SAVVY KEN first up in NSW here for the astute stable coming across from Victoria, its form looks good enough to win here, market will be a good guide late.
No6 SEMPER FIDELIS is racing well enough, just missed last start when well backed. Has the right connections.
No4 OMINECA did enough on debut, with natural improvement can be competitive here.
No3 GIVEN TIME was disappointing last start when going down as odds on favorite, has each-way claims here.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 SAVVY KEN
No1 HIGHER GROUND is a consistent type who did enough when resuming, can be a big improver here second up, looks a winnable race.
No4 GRAND FINALIST looks set to peak here third-up, can settle on the speed and give them something to catch.
No6 ANIMALIA hasn’t done much so far this prep but does have some ability, not the worst here.
No8 ARDANZA can settle just off the speed here and be amongst the finish.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 HIGHER GROUND
No1 TOGA PICTA has been racing in Victoria this prep contesting some nice races, this looks to be a drop in grade, willing to give one more chance.
No8 DESTINY’S HERO did enough first-up, can improve with the run under the belt and run well here.
No9 ROYAL ADVANCE was impressive when winning on debut, step up here but looks like he can measure up.
No3 CUBA (BEST ROUGHIE) didn’t do much last start but went well first-up, races well here at Warwick Farm.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 CUBA
No2 DORTMUND really hasn’t done much this prep and finds a race here with little depth, can lead here and give a sight.
No5 ART OF EXCELLENCE is as honest as they come, should settle just off the speed here and be amongst the finish.
No9 BRIGHT FUTURE is only going OK, if can reproduce its first-up run can win here.
No8 GOOD WEATHER continues to race well, step up in grade here but can be competitive.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 BRIGHT FUTURE
No8 ARANCINI (NEXT BEST BET) loves it here over the 1400m at Warwick Farm, good effort when winning last start, should lead here and is the one to beat.
No6 PHILOSOPHY is a talented type resuming, has trialled three times leading up to this so should be ready to go, big player.
No2 PEACOCK did a good job when winning last start, likes it here at Warwick Farm, can win again.
No11 TYPHOON MONACO resumes here first-up for Bjorn Baker, its Melbourne form looks good enough to measure up, market watch.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 ARANCINI
No3 MARSUPIAL (BEST BET) is the class runner here, his winning strike rate doesn’t excite me, and he’s had his chance to win both starts this prep, but this race looks a fair drop in grade, K. McEvoy takes the ride, last chance today.
No7 REBEL MISS is a talented mare who has done enough this prep on two rain affected tracks, can be a big improver here back on top of the ground.
No5 COCKLES is flying this prep, big step up here but can measure up.
No4 AFTER ALL THAT is a nice type resuming, goes well fresh, can run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 MARSUPIAL
No5 RESIN is flying this prep, looks the horse on the up here. Returns to the 1200m at Warwick Farm which she won at two back, can burn across from the wide barrier to sit on the speed and prove hard to catch.
No1 YULONG XINGSHENG has been outclassed both starts this prep in much stronger races than she faces here, big player.
SCRATCHED - No6 SINGLE AND FREE is an honest type racing well, barrier looks a concern here but has each-way claims.
SCRATCHED - No8 GOLLY MISS SOLLY did a great job in her first prep, two trials leading up to resuming here, has to step up but can.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 RESIN
