Race 5

A 4yr old filly and a 5yr old mare look like they will fight out the finish to this race and complete the exacta. LING LING has shown steady improvement in both of her last outings after returning from a 25 week break and tried to go from jump to wire when just failing by a head in finishing second last time out over five furlongs at this venue. She battled on gamely that day and should not have an issue with going the extra trip. From gate six, she should be right up there when they hit the line. RAKTOFF is a speedy sort who was only run out of it very late last time out over this distance. She has an even better draw of gate three and should be involved in the finish today. CAFE TORTONI returns from a 19 week rest and has not had the benefit of a barrier trial. He like to race up with the pace in his races and should enjoy the drop in distance from his latest run over 1750M. He is drawn one outside the latter which do him no harm.

Race 6

EUREKA STREET has pulled pole position and was making good late progress when finishing third over nine furlongs last time out, suggesting that the extra ground on offer today will be to his liking. He has cracked pole position and looks to be the one to side with here. CAMPOBASSO followed up his penultimate run victory over 2020m with a sixth place finish next time out over 1700M. He returns to what appears to be a more suitable distance today and should not be lightly dismissed in this line-up. DOGMATIC was staying on well when he finished fifth in his last outing over ten furlongs, 2.1L off the winner. He does have a wide draw of eleven out of the twelve runners to negotiate, but he should be doing his best work late.

Race 7

SPENSIERATO is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys and has her second run after a 15 week rest. She was making good late headway when finishing fifth last time out over 1300m and on that effort, she should relish going over the seven furlongs of today’s contest. She has a wideish draw of eight, but could emerge as the vale bet on today’s program. VLADIVOSTOK has consistent formlines to his name and finished second last time out over 1300M, just under two lengths behind the victor. He finished with a flourish that day and seems certain to appreciate the step up to seven furlongs. He will get 1.5kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. DO YOU RECKON will have an even greater 3kgs removed from his allocated weight courtesy of his claiming appie and has cracked pole position. He kept going all the way down to the wire when ending up in sixth place in his last outing over 1500M and should enjoy the drop in trip today.

Race 8

CATEGORY FIVE goes for his hat-trick here having won his last start over this mile journey by 1.3L. He took the lead from the start and then held on gamey to chalk up his second career win that day. He jumps from gate five and seems good enough to complete his double in this line-up. TEE TRAIN was only run out of it late when finishing third in his last outing over 1715M. He is drawn one inside the top choice and will have the services of a 1.5kg claiming apprentice. The gelding seems likely to enjoy the drop in distance. BOLTOUTOFTHEBLUE took the lead shortly after the start before only being overhauled in the latter stages of his last run over 1715M. He has a wide draw of thirteen to overcome, but given his style of running, he should use that early gate speed to move across without consuming too much energy.
