REINCARNATE has shown plenty of potential and has improved with each run this campaign. He has won three in a row and there appears to be no reason why he can’t make it four victories. He has a very good record at the distance and there appears no reason why he can’t continue progressing through the grades.

WUDANG MOUNTAIN is first up and has won first up in the past. He has also won at the track which is a big advantage and Hugh Bowman takes the ride. While bred to want further than 1200m, this colt can play a part fresh.

SIR BACCHUS is another of the Chris Waller contenders in the race. He has placed before when racing first up and has also won at the distance.

DARK STEEL is the best bred galloper in the race and has shown us that he has plenty of potential. However, potential doesn’t win races and he’s starting to prove frustrating for punters. He drops back in class and distance here and should be suited in this field. From barrier 3, he should get all the favours required to play a part in this race.

R2 12.35pm PLUCK @ VINERY HANDICAP 1100m

GRETNA returns to Sydney in good form after some strong performances in Melbourne. She was a winner two starts ago at Moonee Valley and then placed last start at Caulfield over 1100m. She was unlucky last start and her race experience should make her very hard to beat.

MOOSHAKISSA struggled in the soft going first up when contesting the Kindergarten Stakes. On track rated good, we should see sharp improvement. Her form from last campaign would suggest that she could win this race.

IMPENDING has had one trial and was narrowly beaten by a Lubiton and subsequent G1 Champagne placegetter Divine Prophet. He was held together and looked good. Natural improvement from that run could also see him play a part on debut.

AVIATOR returns from a short break after a debut win at this course and distance in February. The colt will have derived plenty of improvement from the run and warrants respect in this line up.

SYLPHEED was unwanted in betting when debuting at Wyong, but she showed a lot of class and a strong turn of foot in that performance. She ran clear on that occasion and proved too good. With natural improvement, she’s another that has shown us she’s good enough to win an even race like this.

MURPHY'S DELIGHT was working home strongly last start, but was beaten by Rhodin Drive, who is also in this field. He meets that winner 2kg better and from that performance he looks capable of turning the tables. The speed in this race also helps his chances.

RHODIN DRIVE showed last start that he is up for the fight. It was an impressive win and James McDonald staying on is a big positive. Although being worse in the weights, he showed characteristics that make you happy to stay with his winning form.

MR STEAL showed his courage last start, winning the Orange Cup with a brave performance. He carried 60kg to win on that day, so the weight here will be no issue. He doesn’t have a great record at the track, but he’ll lead this race comfortably and give the field something to chase.

HE'S DREAMIN' continued his strong form with another place. He finished behind Rhodin Drive and has his chance here to turn the tables. The biggest concern is that he has placed 24 times and has only won on eight occasions.

GALAXY WARRIOR should be able to work across from his gate and sit outside the leader. The Mudgee-based gelding has won his past two outings at Wellington and Orange by a combined margin of nearly ten lengths. Although he hasn’t been racing against the strongest company, winning form is good form and he appears to have another gear left. OH SO UNFAIR steps up to a Highway Handicap after winning two of his past three outings. He has demonstrated an excellent turn of foot and will get his chance to run on strongly with the good tempo that appears to be in the race.

JUNGLE caught the eye of punters last start with a strong finish over 1400m. The extra 100m should suit and his recent strong form should make him competitive.

CARIBBEAN CONCERT will be hoping that the speed is as strong as it appears. If it is then she can run on strongly and cause an upset.

BALAMETALICA won first up after getting the run of the race and was then fair last start when fifth to Grand Proposal in the Highway. Sam Clipperton takes the ride and, with the low weight, he’s an each-way hope.

FALKENBERG has enough speed to cross and lead this race and she has enough class to kick clear and win comfortably. She showed plenty of class in that performance and she still hasn’t finished worse than second from five runs. This is a winnable race for the talented filly.

CHANDANA shapes as an excellent each-way play in the race. The daughter of High Chaparral drops in grade after running fifth in the South Pacific Classic. She was asked to do too much last start, but this race appears more suitable. She’ll be able to sit closer and Hugh Bowman takes the ride.

IMPOSING LASS is another filly on the up. She has had three starts for two victories and a second and has shown her class in all conditions. She should take a lot of improvement from her first run over 1400m and they’ll need to be on their game to catch her.

MONTAUK steps back in grade after running in the Carbine Club at Randwick last start. He was only fair on that occasion, but conditions look more suitable here.

UNEQUIVOCAL will be hoping to win this race and then head to Brisbane to play a part in the Carnival. She got back last start and, due to the poor tempo, was unable to run on. There is more speed in this race and she appears to be suited from barrier four with the 59kg. She is a nice each-way bet.

SORT AFTER steps up in grade after a strong win over 1300m at Newcastle. It was an encouraging effort and one she will no doubt take benefit from. She is drawn to receive all of the favours in transit up on the speed and can continue her progression through the grades.

TREMEZZINA backs up after a respectable effort at Randwick in the J B Carr Stakes over this distance. This is easier and the filly has worked into her latest preparation nicely. The only negative is the tricky barrier.

SWEET KISS bolted clear over this trip at Warwick Farm last Wednesday and just felt the pinch late when running fourth to Something Secret. She’ll lead this race comfortably again and if she gets some luck, she could steal this race at a nice price.

HIS MAJESTY impressed last start, finishing third in the Provincial Championships Final at Randwick with not a lot of luck. He got well back in the field and was then unable to get away from the fence. He got held up badly but was still able to find the line late. From a better draw, he should be able to move out to the middle of the track and run on strongly.

HIGH MIDNIGHT has been freshened since a first up win at this course over 1350m. The son of High Chaparral should appreciate getting out to 1500m on his way to a mile and beyond. He has a good second up record, not finishing worse than second from this two attempts and is drawn well in barrier one.

FAROLITOS has a sensational second up record and will be hoping to add to that here. The four-year-old gelding has won two from three when second up and won his only race at the distance.

HOLLYWOOD BOUND comes back to Sydney after a two-run stint in Melbourne, which didn’t really prove to be successful at all. Although drawn wide, he has won at the track and distance and will appreciate the early speed.

HETTY HEIGHTS was doing her best work late in the Provincial Championship Final, finishing sixth and only losing by just over two lengths. The form from that race appears to be much stronger than that which she is faced with here. She possesses upside and this is a winnable option.

WELL HARDLEY EVER has kicked off his latest preparation in good order and was a last start winner at Warwick Farm. He is open to further improvement third up and is drawn to receive all of the favours in transit from barrier two. His only attempt at the distance saw him prove too good.

ROCKOLICIOUS looks ready to improve. Her runs this campaign have been good and she has won third up in the past. She has to carry 61kg which is a negative, but Hugh Bowman takes the ride which is always a big point of interest.

PAINTE has had 12 career starts and has finished inside the top three on 10 of those occasions. The four-year-old has placed at the distance and will run an honest race.

THE RUMOUR FILE looks set to improve. Chris Waller has an amazing ability to find lengths of improvement for an import’s second preparation and if that does occur, then he may be worth a small each-way bet.

R9 4.55pm TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP 1100m

MOGADOR should be suited by the strong tempo through the early stages of this race. The colt ran seventh in the Zeditave Stakes on February 27 and has since been freshened. He drops in grade and, considering he is a stakes placed three-year-old, this looks his for the taking. He’s placed second up before and he’s one from one at the track and distance.

PRINCEFAMOUS is undefeated when first up and is undefeated at the track and distance. He has a tricky barrier to contend with, but the statistics make him appear to be a good each-way chance in the race.

FIFTYSHADESOFGREY had no luck last start. She was drawn wide and forced to go back which didn’t suit. However, she attacked the line well and she has since trialled well. The bigger track should suit and she will appreciate the speed in the race.

ALART ran on well last start and had nice closing sectionals. With the early speed that is predicted, she will be another running on strongly.
