Race 5

BUGALUGS had made steady improvement in his last three runs, culminating with a two and a half length win last time out over five furlongs. He made his move at the top of the home straight that day and then strode away for a facile victory. He has a handy draw four and looks to be the one to side with here. PLONKA renews his rivalry with the top choice having finished second in the race mentioned above when returning from a 17-week break. He has an even kinder gate two and meets his conqueror on 2.5kg better term today, which should bring the pair closer together. DUAL ESCAPE is a 7yr old mare taking on the boys. She pulled hard in the early stages before ending up in third place last time out when stepping up to six furlongs, just over a half-length behind the winner. She has cracked pole position and should give the males a good run for their money.

Race 6

Today’s value bet, JETT AUSTIN had finished second in his two runs prior to winning his maiden race last time out over this trip by nearly three lengths. He went from jump to wire that day and from his draw two, he is likely at attempt the same tactics here. He takes on stronger here, but may just be up to the task in hand and complete his double. ALPHA GO has an even better pole position and improved despite racing wide to finish second last time out over 1100M, just a length and a half adrift of the victor. He made good late progress in that contest, suggesting that the extra ground on offer here will be to his liking. GREAT MARLOW also improved when trying the extra distance last time out, finishing third over 1100M, two and a half lengths back from the winner. He overraced and then came the widest into the straight that day, but if settling in the race here, from draw four, he should be right up there when they hit the line.

Race 7

With the late scratching of one of her main rivals, the way may have been cleared for TARA JASMINE to record her second career victory. She has only had the two runs to date, winning on debut over 1100m and then finishing second over the same trip next time out, one and a half lengths back from the winner. She raced three wide that day , but stayed on well over the closing stages. The form of that race has stood up well and despite having to negotiate a wide draw fourteen, she is taken to be the best bet on the card. LASTING KISS, on the other hand has pulled pole position. She has also only had the two runs, finishing second first time out over five furlongs and then winning on an objection second time over the same c&d. She only saw daylight at the 200M mark that day, which makes the victory that much more encouraging. BELLA BROADWAY is the third of the trio to have only had the two starts to date. She won on debut over 1100M and then followed that up with a second spot finish when dropping down to the five-furlong sprint when returning from a 26-week absence. She faces a wide draw fifteen, but she is likely to be doing her best work late and should be involved in the finish. 

Race 8

VIKING RAID battled all the way down to the wire when finishing third last time out over six furlongs, just a neck behind the winner and the form of that race has been franked. He gets gate seven and on that last effort he should have little issue going over the extra distance. SOUTHERN SWING has finished closer to the winner in his last three outings, the latest when fourth over six furlongs, 4.4L back from the winner. He was returning from a 17-week rest that day, but if he has continued down that same path, he could emerge as the biggest danger to the top pick. His gate three will do him no harm. MASPOETA is drawn one outside the latter and is seldom far off the action, ending up in fifth place last time out over six furlongs, just under two and a half lengths behind the winner. He did not get the clearest of passages in the straight that day and should have finished closer to the winner than he eventually did. He should be included in all bets.
