Race 1 1:20pm AUSTRALIAN ROTARY HEALTH MAIDEN HANDICAP 1000m

SAMADOUBT is the BEST BET of the day here. He was really good when resuming at Kembla in great time after two very good trials and was just touched off. He should take up the speed here and with Shinn on board he will be very hard to beat.

SELECTIONS: No 1 SAMADOUBT, No 3 Vincero, No 2 Cannot Be Serios, No 6 Rode To Sundown.
SAMADOUBT - 1pt @ 1.80

Race 3 2:30pm BAYLINER MAIDEN PLATE 1300m

IRITHEA is the NEXT BEST BET of the day here. Her three career runs to date have all been fantastic and she finds as weak a race as she has run in so far. The claim is super smart and she only has to carry 52.5kgs here. She should take up the speed here and be hard to run down.

SELECTIONS: No 13 IRITHEA, No 1 Addicticraft, No 5 Produce Me Late, No 14 Where’s The Ring.
IRITHEA - 1pt @ 2.80

Race 6 4:20pm PEPE’S DUCKS/SIGNWAVE CUP BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1500m

ROMNEY’S CHOICE (BEST ROUGHIE) was our value bet last start and he is that again here. He should have won at Rosehill where he had no luck early on in the straight and that cost him dearly. Back in grade here and he should be very hard to beat.

OUR VENTURA drops well in grade here and should find the good going more conducive here. Down in grade, she has a chance.

LEGISTATION comes out of what looks to be a good race last start and has to be given a chance here.

JIMARNI has been running well as of late and with the claim he has a chance.

SELECTIONS: No 8 ROMNEY’S CHOICE, No 4 Our Ventura, No 2 Legistation, No 1 Jimarni.

VALUE RUNNER: No 8 Romney’s Choice.

Race 8 5:32pm HAWKESBURY RACE CLUB MOTEL CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1800m

OBSCURITY was good in a better race than this last start and they ran solid time. With the claim here she has to have a chance again.

TRIANTAN ran in what looks to be a nice race last start. The winner of that had no luck at Canterbury and I’m happy to go with that race and follow it.

PETER JOHN with the blinkers off and up to the 1800m looks as if it will suit here. Down in the weights, he needs to be given a chance.

SURFER comes out of the same race as Obscurity last start and if I like her, this gelding needs to be given a chance too.

SELECTIONS: No 3 OBSCURITY, No 1 Triantan, No 4 Peter John, No 2 Surfer.

VALUE RUNNER: No 1 Triantan.
