Race 1



4 LARLABROOK has won two from three and is first up here off a seven-month break. His recent trial at Dubbo suggests he is back and going just as good or better. There looks good speed here which will suit him allowing him to run over them. 5 OAKFIELD TIME was good winning first up and from a perfect game here with Bowman on board must be respected.


BET:     Backing the 4 LARLABROOK  $5 bet now



Race 2



4 VELADERO was well beaten first up but had little luck on the run and his condition gave out late as well. From a perfect game, he will have the opportunity to either lead or take a seat if there is early pressure. 10 ROYAL NAVY should be cherry ripe following two runs back and is sure to appreciate the drop in weight.


BET:     Not excited small play 4 VELADERO  $3.9 bet now



Race 3



7 MARSUPIAL was outstanding first up when second to Tango Rain over the 1100m and now drops back to his own age here. From a perfect gate, he should position up and with that run under his belt be hard to hold out. 1 SINGLE BULLET resumes are first up but have trialled twice the first when allowed to run to the line was super duper. He looks the main danger to my eye. 2 VIRIDINE and 6 MALAHAT stablemates to Marsupial look the winning chances.


BET:     Backing 7 MARSUPIAL  $3.3 bet now



Race 4



Two winning chances being both the Chris Waller stable in 3 TOM MELBOURNE and 7 COMIN’ THROUGH. Tom Melbourne has a tag of being a non-winner and if he looms here and doesn’t I will agree but just not yet. He was unlucky first up before working on the run and being run down by Happy Clapper. Comin’ Through returned to the winner’s circle the last start when leading and with a lack of speed here he may be hard to run down again. He certainly looked better in himself last start and must be given respect here.


BET:     Good crack on 3 TOM MELBOURNE  $2.9 bet now



Race 5



I thought 1 TULIP was good first up when narrowly beaten at Moonee Valley. She was top drawer as a 2yo and that run showed she has come back a lot stronger and from a good gate here will be hard to beat here. 2 CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES is getting closer to a win having run two cracking races this preparation. If she gets luck from the awkward gate she looms as the big danger.


BET:     Backing 1 TULIP  $3.4 bet now



Race 6



7 WINX is low flying and she’ll win again. Bowman will have her wherever she is comfortable and when he pushes the button she does what she needs to do and that’ll be win number 20. 9 FOXPLAY AND 1 HAPPY CLAPPER look the likely quinella horses followed by 3 RED EXCITEMENT who gave Winx a scare last start.


BET:     Cheer WINX  $1.09 bet now



Race 7



I have tossed and changed my top two selections a few times as I’ve had difficulty splitting them. REDZEL has had a run back and looked super in winning the Concorde stakes but look everything that could go right went right. It’s a bigger field here and there are a few others with early speed. CHAUTAUQUA is a class all over and having seen him at the stables this week he looks outstanding. If he wins this race I doubt anything here can turn the tables come the Everest. First up and a distance suited to others better than him I know but I reckon Chautauqua might just round them up.


BET:     Backing 1 CHAUTAUQUA  $4.5 bet now



Race 8



CHOCANTE proved he was pretty smart winning the Brisbane Cup with ease but it was his last start third to Winx that confirmed it. From a perfect gate, he will likely tag Classic Uniform and Harper’s Choice and then have a good kick in the run home. Waller has the two dangers with ANTONIO GIUSEPPE who needs a touch of luck from the awkward gate and LIFE LESS ORDINARY who should be cherry ripe third up.


BET:     Backing 3 CHOCANTE  $4.2 bet now



Race 9



I might be carried away a bit but now that I THOUGHT SO has been gelded it would surprise me if he ended up racing in not just Group Company but group ones. His trials have been very good and he only needs a touch of luck from the gate and it’ll be shut the gate. MISSILE CODA will likely lead and according to the betting is the main threat so hopefully, Corey Brown on I Thought So won’t be too far way.


BET:     Good crack at 5 I THOUGHT SO  $4 bet now
