Race 1- Sharp Electronics Group Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2200m

French Response is crying out for this trip after a luckless second over 1885 metres on the course proper last start. She was badly held up for some time in the straight and she stormed home when clear.

Wristband has been placed in his past three starts and he is a strong stayer.

Duclair was runner up over 1900 at Canterbury last start and he has a chance.

Selections:

3- French Response

8- Wristband

9- Duclair

Race 2- Coastline Pools & Spas Class 2 Handicap 1250m

Roosevelt drops in class here after a close fourth at Canterbury two weeks ago. He was only beaten half a length at Randwick and Flemington during spring and he will appreciate the long straight. He has drawn well, and he is a winner second up.

Siege Warfare is a dual acceptor and if he starts in this race, he will be hard to beat. He finished fourth in a Rosehill Highway last start and has drawn the rails barrier.

Undoubted won well at Gosford two starts back and he is a strong finisher

Selections:

1- Roosevelt

7- Siege Warfare

8- Undoubted

Race 3- Australian Bloodstock CG&E Maiden Plate

Chris Waller has three runners in the event and the lightly raced pair Parlande and Samurai should run well. Parlande’s only start was at Newcastle three weeks ago when a fast finishing third over 1200m. He trialled nicely at Rosehill a week ago and he has a soft draw and he will appreciate the longer trip.

Samurai was only beaten a neck on debut at Wyong on November 9 when he came from the tail of the field.

Luvoir has been placed at Canterbury and Kembla

Selections:

10- Parlande

11- Samurai

8- Luvoir

Race 4- Des Edser Memorial F&M Benchmark 64 Handicap 1350m

Miss Sure Shot is a speedy filly with good credentials. She led when beaten less than two lengths first up at Warwick Farm on November 27. Last start she was never headed when winning at Wyong and she has a favourable barrier.

Kariba was a close third at Hawkesbury last start and she was only 1 ½ lengths from the winner in a strong race at Wyong two starts back.

Fashchanel led all the wat to win on debut at Hawkesbury on November 8

Selections:

4- Miss Sure Shot

8- Kariba

7- Fashchanel

Race 5- Yarraman Park CG&E Benchmark 64 Handicap 1350m

Go Fish Go hasn’t been far away in both starts this prep and he is ready to win. he races on the pace and comes out of two strong races. The two-kilogram claim is a positive.

Rockin Ruga is a leader and fitter for two runs back.

Selections:

4- Go Fish Go

5- Siege Warfare

1- Rockin Ruga

Race 6- Sydney Junction Hotel After Party F&M Maiden Plate 1350m

Capri Of Tuffy is knocking on the door after two good placings. She was only beaten half a length by Phoenix River in a stronger race at Gosford first up. She was placed at Canterbury two weeks ago.

Saigon has performed well in both starts and she will appreciate the longer trop.

Toomai wasn’t far away at Rosehill last start

Race 7- Hungerford Hill Wines Maiden Handicap 1200m

Vecchietta debut run at Coffs Harbour was an eye catcher. She stormed home to finish a close third and the extra 200 meters is ideal. She should box seat from the coveted rails barrier.

Oakfield Romance resumes from a spell and she trialled well.

April Thunder is on debut after two nice trails.

Selections:

12- Vecchietta

7- Oakfield Romance

10- April Thunder
