Race 4.
A 5yr old mare and two 4yr old fillies look like they can dominate the finish to this race and complete the trifecta. ANGOLA MISS had to be eased early, but then recovered well to finish strongly and end up in second place last time out over 1300M, only a short head behind the winner. She has her peak run here after returning from a 17 week break and from draw seven, she is taken to be the value bet on today’s card. IN GREAT NIC stayed on well to finish third in her last outing over six furlongs. She will have to negotiate a wide gate twelve, but is likely to be doing her best work late. FAST 'N' FORWARD returns from a 19 week rest, but has had the benefit of two barrier trials. She has her first run for her new trainer and if fully settled into her new surroundings, she should be involved in the finish here.

Race 5.
This looks to be a tricky race and some caution is advised. The tentative top choice goes to WHY WOULDN'T YOU who has his first run since a 10 week absence, but has had a barrier trial to prove his fitness. He improved when dropping down in distance from 1900M to a mile last time out when finishing fourth, just over a length behind the winner. He took a bump at the 50M mark that day and should have finished closer to the victor as a result. He jumps from a handy gate two and could be the one to side with here. Although FROM NOW is recorded as finishing eighth last time out, he was just 3.3L off the winner, this despite being bumped at the 200M mark. From draw four he should be right up there when they hit the line. ENRIQUE is drawn one outside the latter and made late progress on debut over 1300M to end up in fifth place, five lengths behind the winner. He would have come on with the run under his belt and the extra ground should be to his liking. BLONDE ‘N’ READY has cracked pole position and finished well when making marked improvement last time out over six furlongs. If he can confirm that effort, he should be respected in this line-up.

Race 6.
With the late scratching of one of her main rivals, the way may have opened for TEQUILA BOOM to record her fourth career victory. She is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she improved to win her last outing over six furlongs, despite being friendless in the betting markets. She battled all the way down to the wire that day and if showing the same determination here, she may prove to be hard to topple. She jumps from gate four and is made the best bet on today’s program. AQUAJAK missed out on his hat-trick when finishing sixth last time out over five furlongs. He was only run out of it late that day and steps up in distance here, but if suited to the extra ground, he could threaten the top pick. ZOU YORK has showed steady improvement in his last two runs, finishing third in his latest outing over 1300M, one and a half lengths off the winner. He has his peak run today and if he has continued down that same path, he should be considered here.

Race 7.
A small field of just seven runners face the starter here, but finding the winner is no easy task. JOHN BOOKE was hampered entering the straight before ending up fourth last time out over 1300M. With better luck in running today, he should be right up there in the firing line from his gate three. MISS MARGS is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she followed up her penultimate run victory over this distance with 6.7L defeat next time out over a shorter 1300M trip. She was slowly away that day, but if getting away on terms here and with going back over what appears to be a more suitable distance of a mile, she is likely to threaten the former. STANDING OVATION is a 5yr old mare who was somewhat disappointing last time out over a mile. That was her second run after a rest and she did shift around in the straight, so could perhaps be forgiven for that effort. She has pole position and will get the services of ex-SA jockey Sean Cormack, so she should be included in all bets.

Race 5.
With the late scratching of one of his main rivals, the door may have opened for FLUTTERING to claim his maiden victory at the third time of asking. He has finished second in his two runs to date, the latest over six furlongs at this track. He raced three wide that day before making good late progress to get within one and a half lengths of the winner, suggesting that the extra ground on offer here will be to his liking. He gets a handy draw four and is taken as the best bet on today’s card. NOIR JACK stayed on when showing marked improvement to end up in third place in his last outing over six furlongs. He is drawn one inside the top choice and could emerge has his biggest danger. MURTALLICA is a 5yr old mare taking on the boys, but she was hampered when fifth last time out over 1300M and should have finished closer as a result. She jumps from gate five and could complete the trifecta.

Race 6.
DUNATUN followed up his penultimate run victory over six furlongs with a third place finish over the same trip at this venue next time out. He has a wideish draw of eight, but on the plus side, he will have 2kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. NARDA SHAR and MOSS THE BOSS renew their rivalry here and the form of their last clash over this c&d is likely to be confirmed. The latter finished 1.8L in front of the latter that day and as he is now only 0.5kgs worse of at the weights, that should not be enough for the tables to be turned. The pair are drawn alongside each other at gates nine and ten, so neither will have any real advantage in that regard.   

Race 7.
DELUXE ROCKER missed out on his hat-trick when finishing second in his latest run over six furlongs, but was only beaten by a head. He attracted plenty of betting support that day and will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways here. His two prior wins had been recorded over five furlongs, so the drop in distance should be to his liking. SERBELLONI was a narrow head winner of his last outing over the c&d. He is a speedy sort who is sure to put his pole position to good use and may prove difficult to overhaul in the closing stages of the contest. AMMATE won his last start over 900M by one length and has drawn gate six. The form of that race has been franked and he should be included in all bets.

Race 8.
As with the first leg of the Jackpot, the late scratching in the race may come to the assistance of AROHA TE MANA to post his third career victory. He has finished second in his last two outings over this distance, the latest when a half length back from the winner. He was returning from a 25 week break that day and whilst draw wide in gate twelve, he should be picking off the frontrunner over the latter stages of the race. EL OF A SAGA on the hand has pulled pole position. She is a 4yr old filly taking on boys, but she only got going very late before winning her last outing over this c&d by one and a half lengths. She is sure to give the males a good run for their money. HEMSTED is a speedy sort who has improved in his last two starts, the latest when third over the six furlong journey at this track, 1.7L back from the winner. She has a wideish draw nine, but should still be respected in this line-up.

Race 2.
With the three late scratchings, only five runners face the starter here and LOVE TAP looks the proverbial penalty kick. He has won both of his starts to date over six furlongs, the latest when putting over four lengths between himself and the opposition. He won going away suggesting that the step up in distance is well within his grasp. He jumps from pole position to add to his ammunition. AUBURN BOY stayed on well when finishing second last time out over a mile, one and a half lengths behind the winner. He should complete the exacta here. HARD REALITY went from jump to wire to win his last outing over seven furlongs and could prove dangerous if allowed too much start. 

Race 5.
COMMANDING MISSILE won on debut over 1100M by just under a length, despite ducking out sharply in the closing stages of the race. But for that he would have been a far more comfortable victor. He jumps from a handy draw four and seems good enough to record a quick double here. LUVOIR had made steady improvement in his last three runs, culminating in his maiden win last time out over seven furlongs. He takes on stronger today and has a wideish gate eight, but he will get the services of ex-SA jockey Keagan Latham, so will get all the necessary assistance from the saddle. CORDYCEPS MIRACLE showed marked improvement to win his last outing over 1300M before taking an 18 week break. He returns here after posting two encouraging barrier trials and has a kind draw three. He should be involved in the finish.

Race 6.
EXPLOSIVE TRUTH returns from a 14 week rest, but he has finished second in both his barrier trials to showcase his well-being. He had finished second in his two runs prior to disappointing in the race over seven furlongs that prompted the absence. He will have to negotiate draw nine, but he should nevertheless be right up there when they hit the line. QUALIS jumped awkwardly before staying on well to finish third on debut over six furlongs. He has a wide draw of twelve to overcome, but he would have learnt from the experience and with the natural improvement that can be expected, he should threaten the top choice. TINTAGEL on the other hand has pulled pole position. He finished fifth first time out over 1100M and get a set of blinkers fitted for today’s run. If these have the desired effect, he could be a big runner here.

Race 7.
This looks to be a tricky F&M Handicap and some caution is suggested. STILL REIGNING tried to win from the front before finishing fourth last time out over seven furlongs, one and a half length back from the victor. She has gate six and is likely to attempt similar tactics today. BELLA FIGURA finished off her race well when third on debut over 1100M and on that effort, she should relish the extra ground on offer here. Her draw four will do her no harm. TAYLOR BE SWIFT looked a possible winner before being collared on the line to be denied victory by just a head in her debut run over six furlongs. She has the widest draw of them all at gate fifteen, but she should be doing her best work late. JANNEKE returns from a lengthy 44 week absence, but has had all of four barrier trials, winning the latest. She finished fifth on debut over six furlongs and from draw three, she should not be lightly dismissed. 

Race 8.

RENASCENCE did not have the clearest of passages when showing good improvement to win his last start over six furlongs by a head. He gets to jump from draw four and looks to be the value bet at today’s meeting. KING MOMBASSA put in a solid last effort to be fifth over six furlongs, 1.4L behind the winner last time out. He has his first run for his new trainer and should use his early gate speed to move across with expending too much energy. RISE TO FAME is seldom far off the action and was making good late progress to finish fifth in his last outing over six furlongs. From draw six he should be right up there in the firing line.
