Race 5.
DERULO has won all four of his starts to date, the latest when going from jump to wire to put six lengths between himself and the balance of the field over this c&d. He is drawn the widest at gate eight, but that should not stop him chalking up victory number five. He is taken to be the best bet on the day’s program. His biggest rival may be TENNESSEE BOY who has his hat-trick run here after winning his last start over 1300M by over four lengths. He ran on strongly that day and will start from gate three. MYSTERY 'N' MAGIC stayed on well before ending up in second place last time out over six furlongs. He could complete the trifecta here.

Race 7.
This looks to be a tricky race to open up the Jackpot and some caution is advised. REAGAN has shown good improvement in his last two runs, the latest when fifth over six furlongs, 2.2L off the winner. He is likely to appreciate the extra ground on offer here and despite having to negotiate a wide eleven draw, he could be the one to side with here. ROTH’N’BELL followed up his penultimate run victory over six furlongs with a ninth place finish, 2.3L behind the winner. The form of that race has been franked and he will jump from a kinder draw four. NATURAL PREDATOR has cracked pole position and has his first run for his new trainer. If fully settled into his new surroundings, he could trouble the top two selections. TRIGGER made good late progress when ending up in fifth place in his latest outing over a mile. The drop in trip should not be an issue as he won over seven furlongs in his penultimate start.

Race 8.
THE HARROVIAN has won six on the bounce, drawing clear to win his last start over this c&d by one and a half lengths. He returns from a 17 week rest and has not had the benefit of a barrier trial, but he could prove hard to topple here, jumping from his handy draw of gate four. LANGHRO was only outrun very late when finishing second in his last outing over 1300M. He gets gate six and could complete the exacta here. ONLY WANNA SING had his consistency rewarded with a win last time out over six furlongs. He likes to race up with the pace and could difficult to overhaul over the closing stages of the contest.

Race 9.
NORTH AFRIKA has won four on the trot, the latest by 3.3L over 1900M at this venue. He should have little problem with the rise in distance and from gate two, he could continue on his winning ways. PANIAGUA has been impressive in winning five races in a row. He steps up in distance here after his latest victory over 1609M. If equally as effective over the greater journey, he looks to be the immediate danger to the top pick. SHIRANDA has pulled pole position and showed marked improvement to win his last start over ten furlongs by a head. If he is able to confirm that last effort here, he could threaten the top two selections.

Race 10.
CROCODILE SHOES is drawn in pole position and is seldom far off the action. Although finishing ninth in his last start over seven furlongs, he was just 2.9L off the victor. He stayed on well that day, suggesting that the extra trip will be to his liking. PLEASURE BOMB is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she battled all the way down to the wire when a narrow winner last time out over a mile. She jumps from gate seven and should be involved in the finish today. ISILMO finished seventh in his last outing over seven furlongs and will have the blinkers removed for this run. If this move has the desired effect, he should be included in all bets.

Race 5.
With the late scratching of one of his main rivals, the way may have cleared for RULE OF LAW to post a quick double here. He has only had the two runs to date, but went from jump to wire to win his maiden race last time out over six furlongs by one length. He has a handy draw of gate three and is taken to be the best bet on today’s program. MANLY COVE returns from a lengthy 54 week break, but has won two of his three barrier trial to showcase his well-being. He is seldom far off the action, finishing third last time out over this c&d. From draw five he could emerge as the biggest danger to the top choice. BUDHWAR showed marked improvement in his last two outings, finishing third in his latest run over six furlongs. He battled all the way down to the wire that day and should be involved in the finish here. 

Race 6.
LET IT POUR is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys and has her first run after a 32 week rest, but she has posted two encouraging effort in her barrier trials and looks ready to win this race. She drops in distance from two outings over seven furlongs, but gets the blinkers removed for the first time today and if this move has the desired effect, she could prove to be the one that they all have to beat, jumping from her handy gate three. OSLO returns from an even longer 46 week break, but did win one of his two barrier trials. The engaging of ex-SA jockey Glyn Schofield would suggest that the colt is expected to put in a strong challenge for top spot. SINGLE TONITE is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys. She finished second over five furlongs on debut, just a head behind the winner. She attracted betting support that day and did stay on over the closing stages, suggesting that the extra distance on offer here will be to her liking.

Race 7.
JACQUINE REWARD followed up his penultimate victory over six furlongs with a sixth place finish over the same distance next time out, just under two lengths off the winner. He was only outrun very late that day and he is certain to put his pole position to good use. GARRISON steps up in distance after finishing third last time out over 1100M. He jumped awkwardly that day, but recovered well to end up as close to the winner as he did. If getting away as he should today, he could threaten the top pick. WINNING BROTHERS has his first run since a 45 week break, during which time he was gelded. He has his first run for his new trainer and has had three barrier trials. If fully settled into his new surroundings, he should be considered a big runner in this line-up, despite having a wide draw of ten to negotiate.

Race 8.
CHAZELLES is seldom far off the winner and finished a head second in her last outing over six furlongs. She has a wideish draw of gate eight to overcome, but on the plus side, she will have 3kgs taken off her back thanks to her claiming apprentice. MISS TWILIGHT has ultra-consistent formlines to her credit and won her last start over six furlongs by a head. She has drawn gate six and seems likely to put in another honest performance here. SKYMIST showed big improvement to win her maiden race last outing over six furlongs by just under a length, when returning from a 30 week break. She likes to race up with the pace and could prove difficult to reel in over the closing stages of the contest.

Race 5.
MAGAZINE and PHARRELL renew their rivalry here after they finished first and second in their last clash over this c&d. The top choice beat the latter by 0.8L that day and although 0.5kgs worse off at today’s weight term, she is expected to confirm that result. She is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she was hampered at the 300M mark when victorious last time out and should have won by further had she had a clear passage to the line. The pair are drawn in gates seven and five respectively, so neither will be at too much of a disadvantage. LUNAR FLARE is a 5yr old mare who has consistent staying form to her name. She jumped awkwardly when finishing third last time out over 2100M. From gate two, she should be involved in the finish here. 

Race 6.
FULL OF THEORIES has consistent formlines to his credit and was a jump to wire winner of his last outing over a mile. He has a wideish nine draw, but is likely to adopt similar tactics here, so this may not be such a disadvantage. MISTRESS MOLLY is a 5yr old mare taking on males. She messed up the start before recovering well to go on to triumph last time out over seven furlongs. she steps up in distance today, but the manner in which she finished last time out, this appears well within her reach. She is drawn one inside the top choice. BOWING made good late progress when finishing third last time out over six furlongs, just under a length behind the winner. He gets gate six and should make his presence felt here.

Race 7.
MILTON PARK has shown good improvement in his last two runs and chalked up his maiden victory last time out over this c&d. He put three and a half lengths between himself and the opposition that day and looks good enough to record his double today. He is drawn in gate seven, but he led all the way to win that last race and is likely to attempt to do the same here. A PINCH OF LUCK is a 3yr old filly taking on boys, but she has only had the two runs to date, winning over 1100M on debut. She followed that up with a fourth place finish next time out over six furlongs. She has a wide draw of ten to negotiate, but she clearly has some ability and should be right up there when they hit the line. BRAZEN PRINCESS is a 4yr old filly who won her penultimate start over six furlongs by a head. She then finished fourth over seven furlongs next time out, 1.4L behind the winner. She jumps from draw eight and should be included in all bets.

Race 8.
TITAN BLINDERS has finished second in his last two starts, the latest when a head back over six furlongs. He battled all the way down to the wire that day and if showing the same resolve here, he could be the one to side with. I AM VINNIE 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. He was caught out wide when finishing fourth last time out over 1300M, 3.1L off the winner. He has a wideish nine draw, but should not be lightly dismissed in this line-up. Although GINGER JONES is recorded as finishing fifth last time out over 1100M, he was only two lengths behind the victor. He overraced that day and from draw three, if settling in the race today, he should be right up there in the firing line. BLOOD OATH finished a head back in second in his last outing over 1100M on this surface. He is unfortunately drawn the widest of them all in gate thirteen, but he should be doing his best work late.
