Race 1

 

Interesting race to kick off the day, with a couple of quality horses resuming.  1 STRATURBO comes here on the back of 2 trials. He gets in well with the claim and looks hard to beat.  3 WITH A PROMISE was a listed stakes winner over the winter carnival and a quality galloper. She may need the run here from the sticky gate but should be around the money.  I’m leaning toward 2 HARD STRIDE who has a fitness edge, races on speed and will be hard to catch.

 

Numbers: 2 – 1 – 3 – 4

 

Bet: WIN 2 HARD STRIDE  $3.4 bet now

 

Race 2

 

Hard to tip against 2 INGEEGOODBE here off his last start effort. Admittedly he had the race run to suit, but he was very strong through the line.  The 2200m poses no issue and looks very hard to beat.

 

Numbers: 2 – 4 – 6 – 5

 

Bet: WIN 2 INGEEGOODBE  $4.6 bet now

 

Race 3

 

13 GIRL IN A MILLION has explosive gate speed and should be able to offset the wide draw. She was an impressive first up the winner, comes here fitter second up and will give a sight out in front. 8 THE AMBASSADORE has trialed well, gets blinker the first time, and is the clear horse to beat.

 

Numbers: 13 – 8 – 1 – 2

 

Bet: Each Way 13 GIRL IN A Million  $6 bet now

 

Race 4

 

4 MANIAS is absolutely low flying, and can win again here. Jimmy Orman has given this horse the perfect run in transit in his last 3 rides, and he will likely do the same again here from the nice gate. 13 PLUCKY GIRL, also drawn well, and has nice weight pull on the favorite. I think these two fight it out.

 

Numbers: 4 – 13 – 7 – 6

 

Bet: WIN 4 MANIAS  $2.7 bet now

 

Race 5

 

2 SNITZ looks the winner here, gets the right run and with an ounce of luck extricating off the fence on straightening, should win.

 

Numbers: 2 – 1 – 3 – 10

 

Bet: WIN 2 SNITZ  $2 bet now

 

Race 6

 

Speed looks below average, 8 APOLOBOOM & 7 VIENNA ROYALE who look to get their chance 11 IMPREGNABLE steps up to Class 6 here, but with gate 1 and getting the soft run behind the speed will be in the finish. 10 ART D’AMOUR has a tricky gate to contend with, but with the right run figure.

 

Numbers: 11 – 8 – 10 – 9

 

Bet: WIN 11 IMPREGNABLE  $2.7 bet now

 

Race 7

 

6 LIFESAVER was close up in a Sydney Highway race last start. He strikes me as a horse that will appreciate 1350m. He maps to get the best run here, and looks a lock in Each Way.

 

Numbers: 6 – 5 – 4 – 3

 

Race 8

 

Favorite 3 DREAMS APLENTY is the best horse, but is on the 7 day back up, and may not get an easy lead early on. I still think he is good enough to push on and make it a truly run race, and his class will prevail.

 

Numbers: 3 –14 – 6 – 2

Bet: WIN 3 DREAMS APLENTY  $2.45 bet now

 

Race 9

 

17 DIA DE REYES has been a nightmare this preparation, hopelessly missing the start and charging home late. Important gear change here, with the barrier blanket going on. All reports are he trialed while in the barrier blanket, and on his best behavior can win.

 

Numbers: 17 –5 – 7 – 9
