Race 1
NATURAL EMPEROR won her maiden under Elyce Smith and it is encouraging to see the pair reunited for this contest. She looks difficult to oppose on form but will receive a challenge in the form of ALEYSA’S DREAM. She is an ultra-consistent filly that likes to race up with the speed and she should be right there at the business end. OUR STORMY GIRL looks like the stable elect from the Peter Fleming camp and must be respected.

Race 2
THREE STRIPES has either won or finished runner-up in all his career starts to date. The only concern today is that he has his first run at Mackay but nevertheless, he should take a power of beating in this contest. TABATHA MISS on the other hand will benefit from racing at her home track and she can vigorously challenge the top selection. GOLDIE’S ARCHER followed up her second career win well when she was only collared in the latter stages and she could be one to upset.

Race 3
ONLY WANNA SING is the best bet on the card. He is on a hot win-streak and will look to pull of four wins on the trot. It is encouraging that Beau Appo retains the ride and he also has a creditable victory on this track. ABSOLUT ARTIE impressively set the pace last time on this track and found extra to win a tad cosily. He looks the biggest threat to the top selection. CINNAMON MISSILE finished right behind the second selection last time out when storming past the post and is another massive threat in this contest.

LONROCK placed last start at Terang on a soft track when fresh and expected to settle off the speed, well placed. SHOWBAG drops 1kg from last run and likely to race off the speed, could threaten. KALLESKE has two placings from seven runs this prep and drops in weight, each-way claims. CHAPARRAL BELLE resumes after a spell of 24 weeks and ran fifth at Terang when last first-up, sneaky chance.LONROCK placed last start at Terang on a soft track when fresh and expected to settle off the speed, well placed.

This is a field filled with long time maidens and some caution is advised. GETOUT OF MY NEIGH managed to beat CHLOE JADE in his penultimate run and then followed that up with a moderate effort at Cairns. He races better on this track and could represent each way value in this contest. CHLOE JADE also disappointed last time out but the form of her penultimate run is attractive with three horses having come out to win since. SHAKA DIAMOND is battling to win but often pops up in the places and must be respected.

Race 5
IFYOUKNOWWHATIMEAN won impressively last time out and travels well under Sonja Wiseman. The stable companion LEFKAS ISLAND possibly needed his last start when finishing midfield and he will strip a much fitter horse this afternoon. DRUM SHOW is better than his last start suggests and he can find a form return in this contest.

Race 6
CAPTAIN TOM followed up his third career victory up positively on this track when he only found one better on the day. He won on this track at the end of March in soft underfoot conditions, which is encouraging. PLANET WARRIOR has been ultra-consistent and his next career victory looks overdue. ATTIQUE has only failed to deliver once this season and he can finish in the money.

Race 7
ABSOLUT ARTIE will be tough to beat in this contest and he is one of the better bets this afternoon. His penultimate run is best ignored and can follow up on his recent win here at Mackay. HOWICK disappointed last time out but performs much better under Chris Whiteley and looks a strong contender in this Open Handicap. She also won on this track in November, which is a plus. ONEMORE EMOTION runs better at Rockhampton but did find a form return last time out and has to be respected. 

Race 8
ACT OF BRAVERY won well last time on this track and travels well for Nigel Seymour. He is also the stable elect from the Wayne Promfett yard and he must be respected in this contest. The stable companion, GRAND DE LAGO, shouldn’t be discounted though. He is a four-time winner and he won a Class 3 Plate on this track in March. CHARLIE ROCKET is at nice odds and if he returns fresh, he can run into the places.

Race 9
SANTISIMO will take a power of beating in this contest. He drew clear easily last time under Ashley Butler and that formline has since been franked. JUSTALAD had some decent form before the layoff and will be at wealthy odds. He will find it tough to beat the top selection but should settle off the speed and do his best work in the latter stages of the race. SHEEZASINGA looks the likely pacemaker in the race and should be in the mix, providing she saves some energy for the final furlong.

Race 10
The veteran BOOT SHAKER has fought hard in his last three outings to only find one better and could be rewarded for consistency in this Open Handicap. He is likely to race just behind the leaders and pounce on them in the latter stages. ART ATTACK had some consistent form before the layoff and if returning fit, he can pose a threat to the top selection. SWEET SURPRISE was only beaten half a length at Rockhampton in her latest and she merits healthy respect in the” lucky last”.
