BARRICADE beaten favourite in only race start at Muswellbrook last February. Expecting a forward showing fresh with Robert Thompson in the saddle.
UBATUBA kept chasing when runner-up at Gosford when resuming last time out. Still plenty of scope for improvement and gets all the favours from the inside gate.
SINOPIA raced on the speed and weakened when runner-up over 1150m at Newcastle Beaumont last start. The shorter journey looks a plus and rates as one of the main chances.
SELECTIONS: No 3 CALIFORNIA ELITE, No1 Barricade, No11 Ubatuba, No7 Sinopia
Race 7 4:20pm DE BORTOLI WINES BENCHMARK 75 HANDICAP 1600m
ROCK MYLADY has struggled over longer journeys last three. Warwick Farm winner at this trip four runs back and can bounce back here.
GOT UNDERS controlled the race in front to get the money at Rosehill last start. Up 4kg for the win which makes this assignment difficult.
SPINNING GOLD is consistent without winning in recent starts. Goes in all the exotics with a soft run from the gate.
SELECTIONS: No3 BRING LUCK, No4 Rock Mylady, No1 Got Unders, No10 Spinning Gold
Race 8 4:55pm BRUCE JOHNSTON MEMORIAL BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1000m

SUMMER'S BIRD finished her race off nicely running into the placings at Kembla last start on the back of a 64-day break. Fitter here and bright place prospects again.
ALPINE DRAGON placed last three. Has a good record over the short courses and definite place prospects again.
SELECTIONS: No8 WING SNIPPER, No9 Enjoyable, No11 Summer’s Bird, No1 Alpine Dragon
