Race 1 – 04:45 – 1400m – 2-YO Handicap
Selections: 3 – 1 – 2 – 4 – 6
ACHIEVER is a well-bred son of Pride of Dubai who steps out for his third career start here. he was very green in that latest effort over the 1200m and the signs indicate that he will relish the extra 200m. Hugh Bowman jumps aboard and with the improvement to come, he should be one of the leading contenders here. HINCHBEAST gave a good account of himself last time out, when first up after a rest. The son of Hinchinbrook tries this trip and on pedigree he should relish the extra. Nash Rawiller has ridden him before and he reclaims the ride from Hugh Bowman. With both top jockeys effectively swapping rides, it should be a close contest.

Race 2 – 05:25 - 1600m – 4YO & Up BM70 Handicap
Selections: 5 – 2 – 8 – 3 – 4
BIG BAD BRUCE enjoyed the extra ground last time out, when stepping up from 1400m to 1550m in this class. From another useful draw, the 1,5kg claimer retains the ride and the son of Not A Single Doubt looks set for a big performance here. REGAL STAGE has shown up well since that victorious return after a rest three runs back. He drops in class after that latest Class 4 attempt and the step up in trip should suit the son of Redoute’s Choice. Drawn well, he must be included.

Race 3 – 06:00 – 1000m – 3YO & Up BM70 Handicap
Selections: 4 – 2 – 6 – 3 – 8
SAN MARCO was an impressive winner when returning after a rest recently. He produced a barnstorming finish over the reduced trip and the son of Smart Missile could very easily follow up with another big performance over a trip where has built up a very smart record. JOEY'S DESTINY has trialled well, and he looks set for a promising return. He too has a very respectable record over this trip and with a decent record first up, deserves plenty of respect in this class.

Race 4 – 06:35 – 2110m – 3YO BM70 Handicap
Selections: 6 – 4 – 3 – 5 – 10
The fourth race marks the start of the Jackpot and TAMPERING should represent well. He arrives on the back of a hat-trick of wins and now takes a rise in distance in his attempt to maintain his winning streak. A 3-year old son of Pendragon and with just 7 runs under the belt, he has plenty of scope for more. LOVES TO ROCK drops slightly in class after a decent effort last time out. That was when following up after an eye-catching win over this trip in his penultimate start. With the 1,5kg claimer up, he should go right into contention once again.

Race 5 – 07:10 – 1300m – 3YO BM66 Handicap
Selections: 4 – 2 – 1 – 8 – 5
FARETTI has his comeback run after last appearing in a competitive race back in November. The son of I Am Invincible arrived on the back of three good trials in preparation for his return and the signs indicate that he will be more than ready for this. With just 4 runs to his name, he has plenty of scope and looks a big threat in an open race. BATTLEGROUND didn’t quite shape in Group 3 company last time out and he can certainly be excused for that run, on vet’s advice. He was a smart maiden winner in his penultimate start and on his run prior to that, over this course and distance, he must be included with scope for plenty more.

Race 6 – 07:45 – 1400m – 3YO & Up BM70 Handicap
Selections: 8 – 3 – 6 – 9 – 7
PETRONIUS is another son of top Australian sire, Redoute’s Choice. He looked a winner in that comeback run recently but was grabbed late to finish just 0,2-lengths off the winner. With just 6 starts to his name, he has plenty of scope for further progression and it is worth noting that he picked up his maiden win when 2nd up after a rest. Under similar circumstances here, he should relish the extra ground and just about win this. BIGBOYROY has looked sharp in both of his recent trials and he will be looking to continue that solid form he showed towards the back end of his last campaign, when having his comeback run here. The Chris Waller inmate has a solid first and second up record and he should be the biggest threat to the top one.

Race 7 – 08:20 – 1200m – 3YO & up F&M BM70 Handicap
Selections: 9 – 5 – 10 – 11 – 4
SPECIAL SNAP has had two comeback runs this year and the daughter of Shooting To Win has shown up well in both. She has her peak run now and in this sort of company she should be able to overhaul this field at the business end. BOUND TO WIN finished 2,5-lengths back last time out, when having her course debut but the manner in which she made up ground after a slow start is worth noting. The daughter of Sebring has won twice from four attempts over this trip and despite the wide draw, she will be finishing strongly once again.
