SILENT DREAM trialled well between runs and has been performing solidly. With Winona on from a good gate she is a chance.
OMBROMANI got the job done well last start at Cessnock. Ideally he would like it a bit wetter to show his best given his performances this time in.
LABROOKE wasn’t well suited by race shape last start. He got a long way out of his ground and hit the line well. He may need a touch further but he is a chance here.
SELECTIONS: No10 TAWFIQ BOY, No9 Silent Dream, No7 Ombromani, No3 Labrooke.
Race 6 3:39pm SOUTHERN CROSS PROTECTION HURRICANE HANDICAP 1150m
SUPREME EFFORT doesn’t have the best first-up record, but looks to be well placed here given his form last time in.
PRO CONSUL has a very good first-up record and although this is strong he can make his presence felt.
SWEET SERENDIPITY is a speedy customer who they will have to run down here and will be hard to catch.
SELECTIONS: No2 POWERLINE, No3 Supreme Effort, No4 Pro Consul, No6 Sweet Serendipity.
Race 7 4:19pm HUNTER LAND ROVER PROVINCIAL CUP - BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP 1350m
DYLAN’S ROMANCE smashed them at Nowra last start and looks to be well placed here given his rating/avoiding the city.
TALTARNI has been running well in stronger grade and has a chance.
PURRVOSA won well last start at Grafton and is well weighted after the claim.
SELECTIONS: No2 GRANITE BELT, No6 Dylan’s Romance, No5 Taltarni, No1 Purrvosa.
Race 8 4:59pm THE PREMIER HOTEL F&M CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1350m
CLEVEDON BAY comes out of what is a strong race last time and is well placed in a race such as this.
SORT AFTER is ready to go first-up after two strong trials and blinkers being applied for the first time. Well weighted after the claim.
SELTZER has a touch of class on her side and has trialled well leading in.
SELECTIONS: No2 MONTIGNAC, No4 Clevedon Bay, No1 Sort After, No8 Seltzer.
