Race 1.
KWAHADI stayed on well in his last start over a mile and should appreciate going the extra distance here. STEEL SEDAKA was making steady late progress in his last outing over a mile and is another who should enjoy going the extra trip today. STRONG PRIDE is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys, but she has cracked pole position and should give the males a good run for their money. ART MAJOR has only had the two runs to date where he has finished second in both of them over 1500M. From draw two, he will be hoping to go one better here.

Race 2.
With two of the more fancied runners in the race scratched, the way may become clear for ANNABETH to record her maiden victory. She is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys, but the blinkers are removed for the first time and she may do better as a result. DODGE THE HOUNDS on the other hand gets the blinkers re-fitted today. He showed some improvement last time out when dropping back in trip and despite a wideish draw, he could threaten the former. GUNSABLAZIN’ is drawn one inside the latter and has shown good improvement in his last two outings over six furlongs. The drop in trip should not be an issue. PIMPPOINT is a 3yr old colt who makes his debut here, but he has put up five decent barrier trials. Any betting support for him should be respected.

Race 3.
Two 3yr old fillies look like they can dominate the finish to this race and they may be able to complete the exacta here. EXACT REPLICA improved last time out when finishing second over seven furlongs, just one length behind the winner. She jumps from draw two and should be a big runner today. INTELLECTIVE returns from a 19 week break and has not had the benefit of a barrier trial, but she had consistent form before the rest and from a handy draw, she should be respected here. DROP THE MIC has his first outing after an even longer 30 week break. He is seldom far off the winner, but has a wide draw to deal with. Without a barrier trial, his fitness will need to be taken on trust. LAYBUY has the blinkers removed for the first time and if he is able to repeat his penultimate effort over 1300M, he should pose a danger to the top three selections. 

Race 4.
ROKARA has solid staying form over various distances and has finished second in his last three starts. He may prove hard to topple here, despite having a wide draw. TRALEE ROSE is a 3yr old filly taking on males and also has a wide draw to deal with. She steps up in trip, but should be respected in this line-up. FLENSBURG is another who steps up in distance, but he stayed on well in his last outing over nine furlongs and could be looking for this greater test of stamina. ENERGY RAIDER is a 3yr old filly who has cracked pole position. She was making late progress last time out over eleven furlongs, suggesting that the extra ground will be to her liking.  

Race 5.
YULONG CAPTAIN has finished under one and a half lengths behind the winner in his last two outings over twelve furlongs and will be hoping for that consistency to be rewarded with a victory here. BEACHGOER stayed on well to win his last start over ten furlongs and should have no problem coping with the extra distance. GREY KHAN was a tad disappointing last time our over ten furlongs, but may well be better over the extra trip. JENSTAR is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she has strong staying formlines to her credit and will certainly keep the males honest here.

Race 6.
PADDY MAC has only had the two starts to date, both over seven furlongs, finishing a close up third on debut and then putting 5.5L between himself and the rest of the field next time out to record his maiden victory. He is drawn one from the outside of the field, but with a bit of luck in running, he could complete the double. ALPHAVILLE showed marked improvement when winning his maiden race last time out over seven furlongs and jumping from pole position, he may be the immediate danger to the former. HE'S THE REAL DEEL has put in two solid last two efforts and from a handy draw he should be respected today. LADY DELIGHT is a 4yr old filly taking on males and is the stable companion of the top choice. She did win her last start to crack her maiden win and should be involved in the finish here.

Race 7.
MISS SKEPTICAL is a 5yr old mare taking on males, but she showed good improvement in her last start over 1100M when only beaten by a head. LA BELLA COSTA is a 4yr old filly who missed out on her hat-trick last time out over seven furlongs. She returns from a 17 week break and has not had a barrier trial, but if not in need of the run, she could get back to winning ways here. MORE SUNDAYS was immediately rested for 19 weeks after a disappointing last start over six furlongs. He had won his run over the same distance prior to that and if bouncing back to that type of form, he would be a big runner here. KALKARNI ROYALE is a 3yr old filly who won by three lengths on debut over five furlongs and could be almost anything. Keep an eye on the betting to see how her connections feel about her completing the double. 

Race 8.
BROMES won his latest outing over a mile in the shadow of the post and despite having to start from the widest draw of them all, be should be right up there in the firing line. JIMMY'S SECRET is drawn at the complete opposite end of the barrier gates, in pole position. He should put that to good use as he drops in distance from his last start over nine furlongs where he finished four lengths behind the winner. NOT ALONE finished a short-head second last time out over 1500M after attracting plenty of betting support that day. He will be looking to make amends here. ABLESTOCK returns from a 23 week break and no barrier trial. He drops down in trip after winning his maiden race last time out over ten furlongs. If not finding the trip too sharp, he could be involved in the finish.

Race 9.
A tricky contest concludes the day’s program and some caution is advised. SIR HARALD showed good improvement in his last two outings, the latest being a head defeat over a mile. He has pulled pole position which is a big plus. RIVAROLA on the other hand will have to negotiate draw twelve, but he did win his last start over 1500M and will be doing his best work in the closing stages of the race. SHIFTY SHAMUS gets a set of blinkers fitted for the first time today and if these have the desired effect, he should be right up there in the dash down to the line. ACCORDINGLY is a 4yr old filly taking on males and returns from a 19 week rest. She takes a big drop in distance after her last two outings over ten furlongs. If returning fresh, she could be the lurker in the pack.
