Race 3 2:45pm LAHOOD AND SONS F&M CLASS 1 HANDICAP 1400m
No 6 SEDANZER (BEST BET) was most impressive winning at Kembla Grange last start over this trip. This doesn't look overly strong so the filly by Sebring should go back-to-back.
No 2 DIAMBRA
No 1 BAUBO
No 3 FLAUNTING
SEDANZER - 1pt @ 2.10
Race 4 3.20pm NESTLE CG&E CLASS 1 HANDICAP 1400m
KING DARCI (NEXT BEST BET) was an impressive winner at Goulburn two runs back before having no luck from the bad barrier when favourite at Canterbury. If he gets some luck he should be hard to beat.
SELECTIONS: No6 KING DARCI, No1 Texas Rebel, No5 Hail The Chief, No4 The Bull.
KING DARCI - 1pt @ 4.80
Race 5 3:55pm ARCADE TRADER/RICHMOND CLUB PROV & CTRY MAIDEN PLATE 1300m
CHEEKY BELLA has had plenty of tries but is going well this time in. She should lead this race and with 1.5kg off her back from barrier (5) she’s the one to beat.
PARNOSSOS will be fitter after a nice return at Port Macquarie. He will appreciate the step up in distance.
JUST TWO VEES has been just fair at his runs this time in, but from barrier (2) in this ordinary race he can add some value to the day racing over 1300m.
LATTIMER is drawn wide but should appreciate the step up in distance.
SELECTIONS: No5 CHEEKY BELLA, No3 Parnossos, No1 Just Two Vees, No10 Lattimer.
CHEEKY BELLA - 1pt @ 3.30
Race 6 4:35pm ARISTOCRAT MAIDEN PLATE 1500m
ROMAN SON (BEST ROUGHIE) came from a mile back on debut at Newcastle. With G Schofield jumping on and getting out to the 1500m he will be hard to hold out at nice each-way odds.
ROGUE MISSILE has had every chance in his two runs this time in, but has run well and should be in the finish again.
LATIN BOY a stablemate to Roman Son, had no luck last start when favourite and can be an improver here.
GO BENNY has to overcome a tough barrier, but did race well last start at Hawkesbury when finishing second.
SELECTIONS: No14 ROMAN SON, No7 Rogue Missile, No5 Latin Boy, No3 Go Benny.
ROMAN SON - 1pt @ 8.00
Race 7 5.15pm JIM BEAM BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1800m
UNDOUBTABLE didn't have much luck last start at Wyong. He looks suited getting out to the 1800m and Tim Clark takes the ride.
PRINCE MORPHEUS was strong breaking through here last start. The four-year-old gelding should get the ideal run from barrier (4).
LOTHARIO was close up last time at Cantebury but has barrier (10) and 61kg to contend with.
OBSCURITY the likely leader, but she does have to carry 57kg.
SELECTIONS: No5 UNDOUBTABLE, No3 Prince Morpheus, No1 Lothario, No7 Obscurity.
UNDOUBTABLE - 1pt @ 6.00
