Race 6 4:25pm MELBOURNE CUP @ THE EG BENCHMARK 60 HANDICAP 2100m
CROSSING GUARD (BEST ROUGHIE) didn't get the clearest of runs here last week. Suited stepping up in distance and invariably runs well at the track.
MISS TICKLES has won two of last four. Placed in the Wyong Cup prelude three runs back and best form this distance range.
MISS YOU MA finished on the placegetters’ heels at Cessnock last start but needs to find something to be a genuine winning chance in provincial grade.
BOB'S A DAZZLER placed two of last three but looks to be aiming a touch high taking on provincial grade.
SELECTIONS: No1 CROSSING GUARD, No4 Miss Tickles, No2 Miss You Ma, No5 Bob’s A Dazzler
CROSSING GUARD - 1pt @ 3.30
Race 7 5.00pm HAPPY 50TH RAY LAWSON MAIDEN HANDICAP 1100m
BLUE MONEY resumes and placed in a recent Warwick Farm trial. Placed four of five to date and a provincial maiden looks an ideal assignment first-up.
MOLLYFIED finished less than a length from the winner at Kembla on debut. All the better for the experience and rates as one of the key chances from a good gate.
NU WA has finished on the placegetters’ heels both runs this time in at Kembla and Newcastle Beaumont. Goes in the wider exotics peaking third-up from an ideal gate.
JADE'S SAGA wasn't far from the winner at Gosford resuming and a close second at Cessnock last start. Rates a place chance peaking third-up
SELECTIONS: No1 BLUE MONEY, No8 Mollyfied, No5 Nu Wa, No7 Jade’s Saga
BLUE MONEY - 1pt @ 2.15

LATIN BOY placed at Goulburn on debut before finishing his race off nicely when runner-up at Newcastle Beaumont last start. Ready to win stepping up to the mile.
ASPEN STAR just a run short when stepped up to the mile finishing runner-up at Wyong last start. Gets the chance to go one better with the run under his belt.
RIGHTEOUS MATE just a run short for the mile when third at Kembla on debut. Right in this with the first-up run under his belt.
IRISH LORD fitter here and the step up in distance a plus.
