Race 1
With the scratching of one of only two runners in this race that have made their debut and the remainder having shown no improvement in her second start over six furlongs, the top four places are likely to be filled by unraced entrants. As is always the case in races like this, the betting may be the best guide in determining the outcome of the contest. Unfortunately, to complicate the issue further, none of the runner have had a barrier trial to assist in arriving at a winner. Trainer Robbie Griffith has three runners, AMY'S PRIDE, NIGHT OF DELIGHT and YOSEMITE. The latter two have wide draws to overcome and the first-mentioned has not done much better, starting from gate seven. SEATTLE DANCER has cracked pole position and may be able to put that to good use.  

Race 2
Whilst there is only one unraced entrant in this race, the majority of the runners have only had the one run and how much they have improved since may be difficult to gauge. MZURI STAR is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys and returns from a 17-week break, but she finished close up on debut over five furlongs and should enjoy going over this trip. BELLOWS has had three runs to date but has his first outing after a 10 weeks rest. He drops to a lesser centre and may do better here. TYCOON THUNDER is another who returns from a break, this time for 17 weeks. He had a fair debut over five furlongs and should have made improvement during his rest. SESSIONS ROAD returns from a 20-week absence and has pulled pole position. He should be considered today.

Race 3
Three scratchings have thrown the race wide open and finding the winner is no easy task. SLY SLOTH was making late progress in his last outing over 1100M, suggesting that the extra ground on offer here will be to his liking. He has a wide draw to overcome, but he is likely to be doing his best work late. DIABOLICAL is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she showed good improvement in her last two starts over this trip and should be involved in the finish here. ALMIRA GULCH is also a 4yr old filly. She finished strongly in her most recent outing and should be right up there in the dash down to the line. WILD VITALITY put in a solid comeback effort after a 22-week rest and if not in need of one more outing, he should be considered today.

Race 4
LADY CELLARBRATION showed big improvement last time out over this c&d and if she is able to confirm that effort, she may be able to find her way into the winner’s box, starting from her handy draw. BILLIE DE LUNE has only had the two runs to date, but she was making good late progress last time out over six furlongs and should enjoy the extra journey today. BRICABRAC JULIE showed some improvement in her latest start over six furlongs and may well be looking for this greater test of stamina. OUR GUARDIAN ANGEL’S first try at seven furlongs was hardly inspiring, but she would no doubt have learnt from the experience and could improve enough to bother the top three selections.  

Race 5
OCEAN ESSENCE returns from a 20-week break. He followed up his win over a mile three runs back with two close up finishes over the same distance before his rest and his solid barrier trial was encouraging. From his handy draw, he's a big runner here. MAXIMAC is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she was only beaten a head over this distance three runs back and gets blinkers fitted for the first time. She should be taken seriously. IGNITING is seldom far off the action and steps up in trip today, but she drops to a lesser centre and should be involved in the finish here. BRITISH ISLE appeared to find the mile just too far for him last time out, but posted a solid effort in his latest outing over 1300M.

Race 6
DOROZA goes for this trio of wins here after recording two comfortable wins, one over ten furlongs and his latest victory came over 2100M. He starts from a wide draw, but this may not stop him from completing the hat-trick. SAILORS FALLS won his last start over ten furlongs and is taken to chase the top choice home. BLACK BEAU TIE was a little disappointing last time out over 2100M, but is certain to appreciate the drop back in trip. SUPER GIRL is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she was just behind the winner in her last start over seven furlongs and appears to be far more at home over this sort of distance as illustrated by her penultimate victory over twelve furlongs. 

Race 7
LIBRATE is a 3yr old filly taking on males, but she has consistent formlines to her name and did finish just 1.6L behind the winner last time out over the mile. From her mid-field draw, she looks to be the one that they all have to beat here. OKOTOKS showed good improvement when just failing to hold off three challengers last time out over this trip. She gets the services of a 2kg claiming apprentice today. HORSE FOR HIGHER is a 4yr old filly who likes to set the pace in her races. She is seldom too far off the action and should be considered today. THE REGIMENT would need to repeat his penultimate effort over a mile if he wants to challenge the top three selections.


Race 8
With six scratchings in this race, just eight runners will face the starter, but this does not make finding the winner any easier. MEMPHIS ROCK showed plenty of toe before holding off all challengers to win his last start over this c&d and will have 1.5kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. FERUS missed out on his hat-trick when somewhat disappointing last time out when 3.9L behind the winner over six furlongs and will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways today. RUSHIN’ RHONDA is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she followed up her victory over 1100M three runs back with two encouraging efforts over sprint distances and is not without hope today. GO HARVIES is a 3yr old filly who was just behind the winner last time out over six furlongs. She has a wide draw to negotiate, but she likes to race up with the pace in her races so this may not be a big issue.
