Race 4

MYSTIC VEIN has finished second in his last two starts, the latest over six furlongs when just under one and a half lengths behind the winner. He was only run out of it very late that day and despite having to negotiate draw eleven, be could be the one to side with here. OAKFIELD HIAWATHA race three-wide before ending up in third place last time out over 1100M, 1.1L back from the winner when returning from a 31-week break. He has an even wider gate thirteen, but with a bit of luck in running today, he could threaten the top choice. TASTEFUL is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she was crowed at the 900M mark when finishing seventh on debut over 1100M, four and a half lengths behind the winner. She had had seven barrier trial before that outing, but was staying on well that day and should have made more improvement. His pole position will be of assistance.

Race 5

IRON DOME has a record of five starts for two wins, one second and two third-place finishes and is taken to be the best bet on the day’s card. He overraced in the early stages before finishing second last time out over 1300M, just a neck back from the victor. He jumps from gate six and could prove difficult to topple. COMMANDO HUNT has his hat-trick run after winning his last start over 1280M by a neck. He hit the front at the 200M mark that day and then held off all late challengers. The form of that race has been franked and although facing gate eight, he could emerge as the biggest danger to the top choice. PURE FUEGO showed solid improvement to win his last start over six furlongs by just over a length. He raced three wide that day, but then still found a strong finish to mow down the opposition over the closing stages. From gate five, he should be involved in the finish.

Race 6

MOTHER’S MERCY reeled off a hat-trick before being unplaced in her next two starts over seven furlongs and 1500M respectively, the latest when fourth, just over two and a half lengths behind the winner. She raced wide into the straight that day, but did battle all the way down to the wire. She is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she has cracked pole position and could be the one that they all have to beat. CONTINUATION has solid staying form to his name and has finished second in his two runs prior to ending up in fifth spot last time out over 1450M, just under three lengths adrift of the victor. The gelding is sure to appreciate the step up in trip. LOCHITA is a 5yr old mare who overraced in the early stages with her jockey battling to restrain her, but she still managed to stay on in the latter stages to finish fifth over a mile, three and a half lengths behind the winner. From draw four, she should not be lightly dismissed in this line-up.  

Race 7

The stable companions OUTBURST and AKASAWA could fight out the finish to this race and complete the exacta, but the preference goes to the lesser fancied OUTBURST, who is made the value bet on the program. He returns from a lengthy 33-week break but has had the benefit of four barrier trials to prove his fitness. He has only had the three runs to date, but his third-place finish last time out over 1615M catches the eye. He was just 1.6L behind the winner that day, but five runners out of that race have subsequently won the race to boost the former’s chances. AKASAWA won by over three lengths on debut over 1500M and was immediately rested for 22 weeks. He returns here after having had two barrier trials and has pulled pole position. He should keep his stablemate honest. CRAZY TRAIN on the other hand has to deal with a wide draw thirteen, but she is seldom far off the action and finished third last time out over 1450M, just under a half-length behind the winner. She should turn in another solid performance here.
