Race 5 2:40pm Class 2 Handicap 1000m
LOVERBOY CHARLIE was a strong winner first-up. He looks to have returned a better horse and can go on with it here.
DIAMOND FEVER was super disappointing last preparation in much stronger races. Off a long break and a solid trial she looks ready to run a race first-up.
GO ARRIVEDERCI was good last start in a similar race. Avdulla jumps aboard here and from the good gate he will be the one they need to run down.
SONATA SONG was good in a strong race last start. There was solid market support for her that day and she had to work midrace. After the claim she is well in at the weights.
SELECTIONS: No 1 LOVERBOY CHARLIE
, No 2 Diamond Fever, No 4 Go Arrivederci, No 5 Sonata Song
Loverboy Charlie - 1pt @ 2.25
Race 6 3:15pm Class 1 Handicap 1300m
AJEETA looks ready to win a race here. She’s carried big weights at his last three runs and drops to 55.5kg here. She looks to get a perfect run on the map and should be in the finish.
LETSAVA WIN got the job done stylishly first up at Beaumont. The form around him in his first preparation was quite good. He looks as if he could go on with it here.
PRINCE DYLAN was disappointing last start at Beaumont. He gets the ear muffs for the first time and if you can forgive him for that last start he is a chance.
SPURSONIC drops well in weight after carrying big weights recently and despite a poor record he has to be given a chance.
SELECTIONS: No 5 AJEETA
, No 1 Letsava Win, No 2 Prince Dylan, No 8 Spursonic
Ajeeta - 1pt @ 6.00
Race 7 3:55pm Maiden Handicap 1500m
NO ESCAPE has his chance to win a race here after placing in his last three. His form is the best of the raced horses and should be hard to beat.
GIDDY UP VENICE has trialled quite well in preparation for his debut run. The trial was over 800m though. But with the debut over 1500m you would have to assume he has had a strong enough grounding for this.
LOIRET comes out of some stronger form races than this and if she can put it all together she has a chance.
ROVING EYE should be ready for the 1500m after two runs back this preparation and is a minor chance.
SELECTIONS: No 1 NO ESCAPE
, No 2 Giddy Up Venice, No 10 Loiret, No 12 Roving Eye
No Escape - 1pt @ 3.90
Race 8 4:35pm Benchmark 65 Handicap 1400m
SLICK SPEED finds a winnable race here. He has been quite good with big weights this preparation and has his chance to win a race.
DON’T NICME has trialled well leading in to a first-up run at his home track. He is better over further, but the starting point of 1400m is a good one.
LONNERO gets the blinkers back on, he has been poor in recent runs and hopefully the gear change can spark him into action.
PRECOCIOUS is a winner at the track in her last preparation. First up at 1400m looks ideal for this filly who has found Avdulla, and her form around Romantic Maid is good enough for this.
SELECTIONS: No 3 SLICK SPEED
, No 1 Don’t Nicme, No 4 Lonnero, No 11 Precocious
