Race 1 – Sharp Office -Maiden Handicap 1850m

Stella Glow is knocking on the door after a close second at Hawkesbury on May 24. The filly wasn’t far away in a quality Scone Maiden on Cup Day. She is looking for this trip and the long straight is ideal.

Ausbred Bluebird and Didrikson are the main threats.

Selections: 1- Stella Glow            3- Ausbred Bluebird                      2- Didrikson


Race 2 – Avid PM – 2YO Maiden Plate 900m

Pyrois is unbeaten in four trials and at Rosehill on May 20 the track was heavy. The colt has the speed to overcome the barrier over the short course.

Beautiful was strong late in his trial.

All three are on debut.

Selections:    2- Pyrois         7- Kissaki        4- Beautiful


Race 3 – Allied Moving Services – Maiden Plate 1200m

Irish import Buoyant impressed in a recent Warwick Farm trial on a heavy 8 track. The colt ran on nicely to just miss. He had four starts in Europe and he was placed in all of them.

Selections:    2- Buoyant   9- Ovoid        4- Easily Offended
