Race 6
CATADUDE had his consistency rewarded with his maiden win last time out over five furlongs on this surface. He finished strongly that day, so his awkward draw of seventeen may not be as big an issue and he will have his cause aided by having 2kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. MONSIEUR MACRON is seldom far off the action and finished just under a length off the winner in his last outing over this c&d. He is a speedy sort who will have 1.5kgs removed from his allocated weight courtesy of his claiming apprentice. CHANNING stayed on well when winning his last start over the c&d by 1.5L. On that effort, he should be involved in the finish today. POLYXENA is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she showed good improvement in her last outing over five furlongs when returning from a 10 week rest. She has a handy two draw and will have a 2kg claiming appie in the irons.

Race 7
BIG ACHEEVA had made steady improvement before winning his maiden contest last time out over the c&d. He stayed on well that day and although taking on stronger here, he may well be up to the task on hand. DO YOU RECKON has recorded two solid runs over this distance and was just 1.7L back last time out. He has drawn gate ten, but he possesses good early gate speed which he is likely to use to move across without using up too much energy. He has a 3kgs apprentice in the saddle who could take advantage of the weight reduction. KISLINA is 3yr old filly taking on males, but she won at only the second time of asking over six furlongs on this surface when returning from a lengthy 55 week break. She has a handy three draw and should ensure that the boys know that they have been in a race.

Race 8
ENCANTO followed up his penultimate victory over 1500M with a second place finish next time out when returning from a 46 week break. He gets the services of a 2kg claiming apprentice and if not in need of one more run, he looks to be the value in the race. SHE’S SENSATIONAL is a 4yr old filly taking on boys, but she battled all the way down to the wire when only beaten a head last time out over six furlongs. She steps up in trip today and is drawn eleven out of twelve, but if showing the same determination here, she could be the immediate danger to the top choice. BULLET MASTER is seldom too far behind the winner. He raced wide into the straight last time out over 1500M and should have finished closer as a result. He jumps from gate four and should be included in all bets. 

Race 9
DEEP DIVE returns from a 19 week rest and has not had the benefit of a barrier trial, so his fitness will have to be taken on trust, but he was hampered in running when finishing 3.7L back in his last outing before the break. He starts from gate five and could prove good enough to record his second career victory today. NAVAL ENVOY is drawn one inside the former and should put that handy gate to good use as he is a speedy sort who may prove difficult to reel in over the closing stages of the race. OH SO REWARDING was a narrow winner of his last start over the c&d. He faces a wideish draw of eight, but he should be doing his best work late.

Race 4
With four late scratchings in this race, REMLAPS GEM is likely to start a very short priced favourite, but he should oblige and is made the best bet on today’s program. He followed up his promising debut over five furlongs with a comfortable victory over this c&d next time out. From gate two, it might be a case of just how far he will win by. SNIPEX ABAA is a 6yr old mare who is drawn alongside the former in pole position. She was run out of it late when 3.3L back last time out over the c&d, but may still struggle to topple the former. GEOTIME on the other hand is drawn the widest of them all, but he stayed on over the closing stages of his latest outing over five furlongs and could be the best of the balance of the field.

Race 5
REUBEN JAMES has consistent formlines to his credit and was only a head behind the winner in his last outing over seven furlongs. He finished well that day and on that showing, he should appreciate the extra ground on offer today. MANSENETA showed marked improvement in his last start when only beaten a head over the c&d. He gets a set of blinkers fitted for the first time and if these have the desired effect, he should be involved in the finish. BANDAHARA has cracked pole position and has improved in his last two runs, the latest when third over this c&d. If he has continued down that same path, he should be respected in this line-up.   

Race 6
TOTAL RECALL returns from a 19 week break, but has put in two solid barrier trials. He takes a big drop in distance, but he was bumped on a few occasions when finishing second over nine furlongs in the run before the rest and if not finding the trip on the sharp side, he should be right up there when they hit the line. ENTREAT is a 3yr old filly taking on males, but she is seldom far off the action and did finish second in her last outing over seven furlongs. The blinkers are re-fitted for today’s run and if these get her to concentrate all the way to the finish, she could threaten the top choice. WHATSIN is also a 3yr old filly. She has only had the two runs to date, but she improved in her second outing when going over a slightly longer journey. She steps up in distance once again today and this could be to her liking.

Race 7
COSMIC KING has his first run after a 21 week rest, but he has had the benefit of two barrier trials. He won by a half length on debut over six furlongs, but was immediately give the break. He could be just about anything and any betting support for him should be respected. NICCIROSE will start from pole position and showed solid improvement in his last two outings over 1100M at this venue. He seems certain to enjoy going the extra distance and should be right up there to pick up the pieces should the top choice fluff his lines. THE SNOOPERSTAR won his penultimate start over 1100M at this track, but was then disappointing next time out over the same c&d. He has an awkward ten draw, but he could prefer going over the extra ground and should be included in all bets.  

Race 8

This looks to be a very competitive race, with plenty in with chances. BUCKLE UP BABY is a 4yr old filly taking on boys, but she chased down the leaders strongly to win her last outing over seven furlongs and could complete the double here. She jumps from a handy four gate and should give the males a good run for their money. ONENESS has put in two encouraging last efforts and finished third in his penultimate outing over this distance, just a half length behind the victor. He has pole position and should make his presence felt here. LUGA LAD missed out on his hat-trick when staying on last time out over six furlongs. On that effort, he should have no issue getting the seven furlongs. EIGER was a tad disappointing in his latest start over 1100M, but the blinkers are re-fitted for today’s run and he may do better as a result.

Race 1
With the one late scratching in the race, just five runners will face the starter here and it looks a formality for BRING ME SHOWERS to exit the maiden ranks today. She was just beaten in her last start over 1640M when she started her run too late after being held up in the straight. JUST WISHING was only overhauled late when finishing second in her last outing, 1.2L behind the former in the race mentioned above. She looks the closest danger to the top choice. THE GOOD THE BAD steps up in distance from her last start over 1500M and is likely to complete the trifecta.  

Race 4
INITIALIZE is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she is seldom far off the action and finished fourth last time out over five furlongs. She was staying on that day, suggesting the extra distance will be to her liking. SAY I CEE YOU has cracked pole position and was bumped at the start before making good late progress to finish 4.4L behind the winner over 1300M. With better luck today, he could trouble the top pick. AMSCHEL made good improvement when finishing just over four lengths back in his last outing over six furlongs. His jockey unfortunately dropped his crop in the run down to the wire that day.

Race 5
ADDOCARR followed up his penultimate win over 1500M with a second place finish over this c&d next time out. He raced up with the pace that day and may prove difficult to reel in over the closing stages of today’s contest. His handy two draw is a plus. IPSO NEM FELEK takes a drop in distance after finishing third in his last outing over ten furlongs and may do better as a result. THE EQUALIZER made good improvement in his latest run over a mile. He was making good late progress that day and seems certain to appreciate the extra ground on offer here.

Race 6
This looks to be a very open F&M Handicap and some caution is advised. The tentative top selection goes to FLATTER who returns from a 20 week break, but has had the benefit of two barrier trials. She had consistent formlines to her credit before her rest and from gate four, she is likely to turn in another honest performance here. COURSESHEWILL showed marked improvement in her last outing over five furlongs and if she is able to confirm that effort, she could threaten the former. MAGIC INK finished third in her last start over five furlongs and will get 3kgs taken off her back thanks to her claiming apprentice. She jumps from draw eight and should be included in all calculations. GINGER ROCK returns from a 16 week rest and has not had a barrier trial, so her fitness will have to be taken on trust. She did however run on well in her penultimate run over five furlongs and could be a factor in this line-up.

Race 7

BANGERS AND MAYO won his penultimate start over this c&d and then battled on gamely before finishing 2.3L back next time out over six furlongs. He has a wide draw of thirteen to overcome, but he should be picking off the frontrunners in the latter stages of the race and is taken to be the value in the contest. SOJOURNIST is a 6yr old mare taking on boys, but she is drawn in gate three and has her first run for her new trainer. If fully acclimatized in her new environment and on some of her better efforts, she should be right up there in the firing line. DARING BELLE is a 3yr old filly who will jump from pole position. She followed up her victory three runs back over the c&d with two encouraging next efforts over the same distance. She should be viewed as a big runner here.
