RACE 1

The Aussie-bred NITRO EXPRESS is drawn pole and he was only beaten by 1.6 lengths last time out behind Curling Luxury at Happy Valley. He was beaten in his penultimate run by Lightning Steed and the form of that run has been franked. KELMIMI WINS set the fractions last time out when outrun late by Red Brick Fighter on this track and he may adopt similar tactics this afternoon. SHANGAI DRAGON has placed in his last two starts. He may not let the second selection have his own way in front and must be considered in this opening contest.

RACE 2

MIGHTY VALOR set the pace last time out and was only collared late when beaten a length by Angel Of My Eyes on this track. He gets top jockey Purton in the saddle and he should take a power of beating in this contest. REGENCY POET is drawn wide but he was only beaten by 1.8 lengths in his last outing and this race looks well within his reach. MONKEY JEWELLERY has some consistent form under Moreira and should run into the places again. 

RACE 3

CIRCUIT HASSLER has finished runner-up in his last two starts and looks fairly-handicapped in this contest. He was only pipped by a nose in his penultimate effort on this track and if overcoming his wide draw he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure. LEADING FORTUNE was courageous in his latest victory when he fought with Triple Triple in the dying stages. He jumps from an inside barrier and it would be no surprise to see him make it back-to-back triumphs this afternoon. MY WINNER is drawn wide but he found a form return in his last outing and with Hamelin in the irons, he can run into the places of this contest.

RACE 4

GENERAL’S DELIGHT was only beaten by a half a length in a Group 3 contest last time out and has the added advantage of shouldering bottom weight in this contest. HELENE LEADINGSTAR finished runner-up in a Group 3 contest last time out when second best behind top sort Dances With Dragon. A repeat of that effort should be good enough to win a contest of this nature. FAST MOST FURIOUS found a form return in his last outing and from pole position he has the ability to run into places. 

RACE 5

MISTER MONTE carries a low weight in this contest and he was only beaten a length on this track last time out by Bullish Glory. It is encouraging that Chadwick has kept faith in the ride and he can earn his fourth career victory today. CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE was only beaten by half a length last time out and the penny may have just dropped. GOOD DAYS hasn’t finished far off the winner in recent outings and he can run into the places if overcoming his wide barrier position.  

RACE 6

SKY FIELD came on from his debut effort when only beaten by half a length last time out and he looks a progressive sort in the making. Moreira jumps in the saddle and he may be able to coax a little bit more out of this chestnut where it matters most. HERO STAR has finished runner-up in his last two starts and represents decent each way value for punters. He is another who finished just behind Yee Cheong Pegasus and should put in another bold effort this afternoon. REWARDING TOGETHER is still fairly unexposed and he needs to be respected in this contest, jumping from pole position.

RACE 7

SUPER RED DRAGON was only beaten a nose last time out by Superb Daddy and he shoulders a handy galloping weight this afternoon. This striking grey has been a bit costly to follow but he looks well treated in this Class 4 handicap. DESTIN made a decent comeback when beaten 1.6 lengths by Chevalier and he should strip much fitter for this contest. Chadwick jumps in the saddle and if coming on from that effort then he will be able to pose a threat to the top selection. SUMSTREETSUMWHERE was only beaten by 1.3 lengths last time out and it is encouraging that Shinn has kept faith in the ride.

RACE 8

The ultra-consistent FANTASTIC SHOW was only beaten by two lengths last time out on this track. He goes very well for Moreira and from his mid-field draw, he may be difficult to peg back in the closing stages of this contest. SUPER ELEGANCE is drawn wide but he made a fair return to the races when only beaten 1.3 lengths by God Of Dragon. He will strip much fitter for this contest and must be respected with French jockey Hamelin in the saddle. EVER LAUGH set the pace last time out and may adopt similar tactics this afternoon. He gets a 2.5kgs apprentice allowance which will definitely assist his cause and he can run into the places. 

RACE 9

MONGOLIAN KING jumps from an inside barrier and he was absolutely charging at them last time out when beaten just under a length by WATER DIVINER. He is now 3kgs better off at the weights with his recent conqueror and that should be enough to reverse that form line. AMAZING CHOCOLATE is in search of a hat-trick of wins this afternoon. He has his third run after a rest and should be cherry-ripe for this contest. YOUNG LEGEND has placed in his last two outings and looks well-weighted in this contest. He has been somewhat underestimated recently and shouldn’t be ignored.

RACE 10

The South African-bred LOBO’S LEGEND has improved in this class having placed in his last two outings and despite shouldering top weight in this contest he looks fairly-handicapped in this contest. He was only beaten by 1.5 lengths in his last start and if overcoming his wide barrier then he should be right there at the business end of affairs. FLYING SWORD has performed admirably in his last two starts under Teetan and looks a serious threat to the top selection. He renews his rivalry with HEZA BEAUTY and either one of them could pick up the pieces should the top selection fluff his lines. 

RACE 11
GOOD LUCK FRIEND has backed up his favourite status in his last two starts and he will be looking to pull off the hat-trick of wins in the lucky last race. It is encouraging that Magic Moreira has kept faith in the ride and the pair should take a power of beating. WINNING BREW is fairly unexposed and ahead of his rating. He defeated Golden Mission last time out in impressive fashion and with a handy galloping weight, he should be able to pose a threat to the top selection. Karis Teetan has interestingly opted to ride SMART LEADER over PRESIDENT’S CHOICE and this Cruz trained inmate could upset in this contest.
