Race 5
A 3yr old and two 4yr old fillies could dominate the finish to this race and complete the trifecta, but the top choice goes to EMMA'S GIFT who has only had the three runs to date, winning over five furlongs at the second time of asking and then followed that up with a second place finish next time out over this c&d, just a neck behind the winner. She has cracked pole position and gets cheek pieces fitted for the first time. If these have the desired effect, she may prove difficult to topple here. ELTHAM PLACE is a speedy sort who probably went too fast before fading to finish tenth last time out over 1010M, just over four lengths back from the winner. She has a handy draw four and will have 3kgs taken off her back thanks to her claiming apprentice to aid her cause. SALOME finished fifth in her last start over 1100M, just over five and a half lengths behind the winner, but has since changed stables. She has her first run for her new conditioner and if fully settled into her new surroundings, she should be a factor in this line-up

Race 6
MAJOR TIME won his last start over five furlongs by half a length and did finish second in his penultimate outing over 1010M at this track, just a head back from the winner. The consistent gelding jumps from gate seven and is taken to be the value bet on the program. ROTHENBURG returns from a 19 week absence and finished second in her only barrier trial to prove his fitness. Whilst finishing ninth in his last outing over a mile, the form of that race has stood up well. He will have to negotiate a wide eleven draw, but has his first start for his new trainer and could threaten the top pick. EVE’S MISS is a 6yr old mare taking on the boys, but she won her last outing over five furlongs by half a length and finished second in her penultimate start over this c&d, so the extra distance should not be an issue. She has pulled gate eight and should be included in all bets.

Race 7
DONANDKIM tried to go from start to finish before ending up in third place last time out over a mile, just under a length back from the winner. He attracted plenty of betting support that day and from gate four, he is sure to appreciate the drop in distance today. He will be looking to make amends here. GUNGA DIN made solid improvement to win his last outing over seven furlongs by just under a length. If he can confirm that last effort, he should be right up there when they hit the line. PEYTON PLACE finished seventh over seven furlongs in this latest start, 5.3L behind the winner, but that was at a stronger center. He like to run from the front and could prove difficult to peg back over the latter stages of the contest.

Race 8
A 5yr old mare and a 4yr old filly could fight out the finish to this race and secure the exacta, but today’s best bet, PROVEN CLASS is the clear top selection. She has consistent formlines to her credit and only saw daylight at the 150M mark before finishing well to end up fifth last time out over nine furlongs, just over one and a half lengths behind the winner. She faces a wide thirteen draw, but with better luck in running today, she should give the males a good run for their money. Although BOOM AND ZOOM is listed as finishing fifth in her last outing over 1300M, she was just 1.3L back from the victor. She battled all the way down to the wire that day and from a kinder gate seven, she could emerge as the biggest threat to the former. DEVIL DAN hit the front at the 300M pole and the held off the chasing pack to win by a length and a half last time out over seven furlongs. He was friendless in the betting markets that day and is sure to put her pole position to good use
