Race 1
ACACIA ROAD ran on well on debut over 1100M and is likely to enjoy going over the extra ground. She would have learnt from the experience and with the natural improvement to be expected, she could be the one that they all have to beat. ROSE OF SEBRING also made a smart debut over 1300M and should have come on with the run under her belt. CANOBIE makes her debut and has cracked pole position. Any betting support for her should be respected. DIALA returns from a 17-week rest, but her debut effort over five furlongs was fair and she should have improvement to come.

Race 2
KRISPY KEV made a smart debut over five furlongs and should build on that over the extra distance. BILLJIM returns from a 25-week rest. He jumps from pole position and should keep the former honest. MARK THE HORSE sticks to six furlongs after dropping back in trip and could do better here. THEMAGICNEVERENDS comes back from a 21-week rest and drops back to sprinting. The gelding is one to consider in this line-up.

Race 3
BUD showed good improvement last time out 1100M and if he can confirm that effort here, he should be right up there in the dash down to the line. OLIVE returns from a 9-week break. She is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but her form is solid and she has cracked pole position. BEETWENTYNINE makes is debut at the age of five, but any betting support for him should be respected. STAR BATTLE showed the expected improvement second time out and if he has continued down that path, he could be involved in the finish here.

Race 4
The scratchings in this race has thrown the contest wide open. MAJESTIC MISSILE is seldom far off the action and will be hoping to find the winners box here. ELUDING won his barrier trial and the trainer/jockey combination catches the eye. Keep a close watch on the betting on him. TRANSLATOR returns from a 22-week break during which time he was gelded. He takes a big drop in trip, but he could return sharper. KWAHADI will need to show improvement if he is to trouble the top three selections.

Race 5
This looks a tricky contest and some caution is suggested. RONAY is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she nearly caused the upset last time out over this distance and although poorly drawn, she should be considered here. GONE ROGUE enjoys the soft conditions and his last two outings over this trip have been encouraging. DEELBRAKA returns after a 24-week break, but was not entirely disgraced last time out over a mile. The drop in distance seems likely to suit the colt. FACT OR FABLE Is a 3yr old filly who finished strong in her latest run over this distance.

Race 6
CALL MY AGENT improved last time out over eleven furlongs and enjoys soft going. He will be in receipt of a 3kg apprentice allowance and should be a big runner here. KAZOOM likes to race handy and his last two efforts have been solid. MONT AGEL is another who likes the softer conditions and was just touched off in his last outing over twelve furlongs. SIRIUS DEAL was only narrowly beaten last time out over nine furlongs and seems likely to enjoy going the extra distance today.

Race 7
MINOLA is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she finished strongly to win her maiden race last time over a mile, suggesting that the extra ground on offer here will be to her liking. LOVE VENUS also won his maiden race last time out over the mile and is sure to put in another honest performance in this contest. RYLSTONE takes a step up in trip but could relish the extra ground. He also likes soft going and should be respected here. DISENCHANTED also takes on a greater distance, but if enjoying the sterner test of stamina, he should be right up there in the mix.

Race 8
This is a wide-open contest where finding the winner is no easy task. The first choice goes to KUROCAINE who won his last outing over 1100M with front running tactics. He will have the added advantage of getting 4kgs taken off his back courtesy of his claiming apprentice. VINCENT VAN GO has finished second in his last two starts, the latest of which was over this distance. HALCYON DAME is a 4yr old filly taking on males and returns from a 30-week rest, but her form over this distance is solid and she should give the boys a good run for their money. WINSOME VOYAGE has the early gate speed to overcome a very wide draw and could be involved in the finish here.

Race 9
MAGNICITY is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys, but she was not disgraced last time out over this distance and a repeat of her penultimate effort would make her a big runner here. DINGA was only denied victory in the shadow of the post last time out over this trip and should be right up there in the firing line once again. STAR FINDER returns from a 17-week break. He gets the services of a 4kg claiming apprentice which brings him into this contest. HIGHWAY TO SUCCESS ran on strongly to finish just 0.2L behind the winner in his last start over this trip. He should be a factor here.
