Race 1 1:40pm CHIFLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES PLATE 1100m
SPRIGHT has had two strong trials leading into a first-up assignment. Yet to run a bad race in her career.
ECKSTEIN with a “jockey” on would be hard to beat, but have my doubts about the stable jockey in the city.
SEEBLUME has had two typical Waller trials leading into a debut run and a strong showing is expected.
SELECTIONS: No 5 NONPAREIL, No 8 Spright, No 2 Eckstein, No 7 Seeblume.
Value Runner – No 7 Seeblume.
Race 2 2:15pm INDEPENDENT EDUCATION UNION PLATE 1100m
BASTIA has trialled quite well leading into a debut run. Stable are known to pull off big betting moves with debutants.
SHACKLETON should take up the speed here with blinkers on for his debut. Waterhouse stable is starting to warm up and this colt has trialled super.

SELECTIONS: No 6 NICCOLANCE, No 1 Bastia, No 10 Shackleton, No 11 Star Of Monsoon.
Value Runner – No 1 Bastia.
Race 3 2:50pm NEW LAW HANDICAP 1900m
BROADSIDE was a strong winner at his Australian debut. He should take up the speed again here and be hard to beat.
BERETTA carried the big weight last start and dominated from the front. With the big weight he should be on speed again and be hard to run down.
MY GIULIANO won well last start, but gets back onto a drier surface here which is against him here.
SELECTIONS: No 2 LANCIATO, No 3 Broadside, No 1 Beretta, No 4 My Giuliano.

Race 5 4:05pm GOW GATES INSURANCE HANDICAP 1500m
COTTAGE won well upon resumption. McDonald went down to ride her that day and sticks with her again here.
YOU ARE GOLDEN won well last start in a better race than this. She has to carry a big weight for this and has struggled with big weights in the past.
LONGKISSGOODNIGHT is starting to really hurt the punters here and with the weight swing on You Are Golden, she needs to be given a chance.
SELECTIONS: No 10 ROMNEY’S CHOICE, No 3 Cottage, No 2 You Are Golden, No 7 Longkissgoodnight.
Value Runner – No 10 Romney’s Choice.
Race 6 4:45pm BELMADAR HANDICAP 1100m
PAINTED FIRETAIL looks as if she may live up to her early wraps this preparation after a big win fresh. She has always had above average potential and hopefully she can live up to it here.
REINCARNATE wasn’t suited by a wet track when a short-price fav first-up. With the fitness benefits and back onto a drier track second-up, he should be in the finish.
MR MANHATTAN resumes after a long break and has had two soft trials leading into this. He has a great first-up record and if he is wound up, even with the big weight he is good enough.
SELECTIONS: No 8 YUMA DESERT, No 11 Painted Firetail, No 9 Reincarnate, No 1 Mr Manhattan.
Value Runner – No 1 Mr Manhattan.
