Race 4.

With the late scratching of one of his main rivals, the door may have opened for today’s value bet, SO SNEEKY to chalk up his fifth career victory. He has finished closer to the winner in each of his last three runs culminating with one length victory last time out over a mile. He went from jump to wire that day, kicking clear of the opposition at the top of the home straight and then holding off the chasing pack in the dash down to the line. The form of that race has stood up well with two runners out of that contest subsequently winning and he has cracked pole position. Although PRINCE OF ARRAGON is recorded as finishing sixth last time out, he was just over two and a half lengths behind the winner. He was dropped out of the race from a wide draw that day and was forced to weave his way through traffic in the home stretch, so did well to get as close to the winner as he did. He gets a wideish gate eight here, but will have ex-SA jockey Keagan Latham in the irons, so he will get all the necessary assistance from the saddle. MAJELLA is a 7yr old mare taking on the boys, but she followed up her penultimate run victory over this mile journey with a sixth place finish next time out over the same trip, six lengths adrift of the victor. She only saw daylight at the 200M mark in that contest, but finished her race off well when eventually getting clear. She is drawn one inside the latter and should give the males a good run for their money.

Race 5.

The day’s best bet, NIKAU was slow away, but sat just behind the pace before hitting the front at the 200M pole to go on to win her last start over 1300M by half a length. She has a handy draw two, has her peak outing since returning from an 18 week break and could prove hard to topple in this line-up. ATLANTIC SEAS won over six furlongs when making her debut and then stayed on well after being slow away next time out when returning from a 25 week absence and dropping down to 1100M, finishing fifth, just over five and a half lengths adrift of the winner, but she was reported to be lame that day so that run is best ignored. She gets gate seven and if bouncing back to her first run effort, she could emerge as the biggest danger to the top choice. GIRLS ARE READY has consistent formlines to her name, winning her penultimate start over seven furlongs by some three lengths and then finishing second over the same distance next time out, 1.3L back from the victor. From gate five, she should be involved in the finish.

Race 6.

This looks to be a tricky race with plenty of runners in with a realistic chance of finding the winner’s box, so some caution is suggested. The tentative first pick goes to JUVENTUS who won his penultimate outing over seven furlongs and then made good late progress when ending up in sixth place last time out when stepping up to a mile, 2.2L off the winner. He has finished fourth in a subsequent barrier trial and should be right up there when they hit the line. MONTSERRAT is seldom far off the action and jumped awkwardly when finishing fourth last time out over 1900M, just over two and a half lengths behind the winner. He tried to go from gun to tape that day and was only run out of it late. The gelding returns from a 31 week rest, but had had the two barrier trials, finishing second in the first and winning the latest. He will have 1.5kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice and is sure to put his pole position to good use. FORTIFIED drops in distance after finishing third last time out over 1900M, just over two and a half lengths behind the winner, but he jumped awkwardly that day and was forced to race four wide, before being bumped on the home turn. He will have to negotiate draw eight, but he should be doing his best work late.

Race 7.

LEPREEZY is a 5yr old mare taking on males, but she stayed on well when finishing second last time out over 1100M, 2.3L back from the winner and on that effort, she should appreciate the extra ground on offer here. She faces a wide gate ten out of twelve, but she is likely to be dropped out of it in the early stages and then start to pick off the frontrunners over the latter stages. RHYTHMIC PULSE had his consistency rewarded with a half length victory last time out over six furlongs. He sat just behind the leaders and then ran them down close to home. From a cozy gate two, he should keep the top pick honest. CONCEITED had to be held up between the 400M and 300M marks last time out, but showed solid improvement when finishing second in over 1100M, just a half length behind the victor and the form of that race has been franked. He returns from a 16 week rest, but has had the benefit of two barrier trials, finishing third in the latest. From draw six, he should be included in all bets.
