Race 3
LOVING MISS is a filly taking on the boys, but she has her peak run here after finishing second in her last two starts. She was well supported in the betting in her last outing and will be looking to make amends today. DOCTOR JACK was narrowly beaten when making his debut over six furlongs. He was friendless in the betting that day, but would no doubt have come on with the experience and could be the biggest threat to the former. VINCIT won his maiden race second time out over 1100M. He takes on stronger here, but he should be involved in the finish. IN ORDER made a fair debut and should have improved since then.

Race 4
RAQEEQ has solid form to his name and was only narrowly defeated last time out over this distance. He looks to be the one to side with here. MAWAANY MACHINE tried to go from gun to wire last time out over this trip, only to be denied victory in the shadow of the post. He is a big runner in this line-up. MONGOLIAN WOLF is likely to be running on in the latter stages of the race. LE JUGE showed marked improvement last time at the track and if confirming that effort, he could trouble the top three selections

Race 5
MAN OF SINN was narrowly defeated on debut over this distance, but with the natural improvement that can be expected, he should give another good account of himself today. FLAG RAISER has consistent formlines to his credit and should be right up there in the mix. MISS GEM is a three-year-old filly taking on males and returns from a 20-week rest. The blinkers are removed for the first time and if she is not in need of the outing, she should give the boys a good run for their money. PILOTE returns from a shorter 14-week break but put in a solid last barrier trial to prove his wellbeing.

Race 6
PAPA JO completed his hat-trick last time out over this distance and the manner in which he dispatched the opposition that day suggests that another victory is a distinct possibility. CALZINI is a four-year-old filly taking on the boys, but she showed improvement in her last outing over five furlongs and if he has continued along that same path, she could test the former. SUKWHINDER is a three-year-old filly who returns from an 18-week rest. She drops back in trip after two starts over six furlongs and may do better as a result. Her barrier trial was encouraging. COLPO DI TAMBURO returns from a 12-week rest and will be aided by getting 3kgs removed from his back courtesy of his claiming apprentice.

Race 7
LA PULGA drew away to win his most recent start over this distance and on that performance, he looks to be the one to side with today. JUNCTION was friendless in the betting markets before winning his last start over a mile. He takes a hike in distance, but he likes to race with the pace and his poor draw may not be too much of a disadvantage. ROSENDAHL RED is a four-year-old filly taking on the boys, but she won her last outing over this trip. She jumps from a wideish draw, but she should be doing her best work late. ROCBOLT ran on to fill second place last time out over this trip and should be right up there when they hit the line.

Race 8
BARODA is a three-year-old filly taking on males, but she reeled off her hat-trick when winning her last start over seven furlongs and it would come as no surprise if she continued on her winning ways today. FISTICUFFS jumps from gate two and has solid form over six furlongs. His last victory over this distance came after two encouraging barrier trials. INCHING CLOSER attempts his hat-trick here after his latest victory was achieved over this trip. He is not without hope of completing the trio of wins. SECONDOFMAY is a three-year-old filly who won her last start over 1100M despite suffering some interference in running. She should be considered here.

Race 9
DITMAS finished strong to just fail to catch the winner in his last outing over this distance and will be hoping to go one better today. QIJI PHOENIX was only beaten 0.7L last time out over 1300M and the blinkers are re-fitted for today’s contest. If these have the desired effect, he should give a good account of himself here. LOVE YOU LUCY is a four-year-old filly taking on the boys, but she was running on well to just fail to complete her four-timer last time out over this distance. She will also get the services of a 3kg claiming apprentice to further her cause. THE PINES is a four-year-old filly who returns from a 16-week rest, but she put up a good barrier trial and should be respected in this field.

Race 10
DESMON’S PRIDE finished a close up fourth last time out over 1500M and the drop in distance is sure to suit him. From his mid-field draw, he looks to be good value. RED STINA is a four-year-old filly taking on males, but she has her peak run here and finished under a length behind the winner last time out over 1300M. She should be involved in the finish today. MR BELLAGIO has finished second in his last two outings over 1300M and should be right up there once again. FIGHTING TEO returns from an 18-week break and takes a big drop in distance. If not finding this too sharp, he should be considered here.
