Race 1- Avid Project Management Maiden Plate 1300m
Requited found the trip too short when a close fourth in a 900 metre Maiden at Scone on debut two weeks ago. He had trialled nicely prior to that run and he has a nice barrier and Tommy Berry.
Kingsheir is a European import on debut after a nice quiet trial at Rosehill.
Bellarine is first up after a nice trial.
6 – Requited
1 – Kingsheir
2 – Bellarine
Race 2- Next Payment 2YO Maiden Handicap 900m
Riccardo was narrowly beaten first up on this track after sharing the lead. His only other start was on this track in January when close up behind the very smart Holyfield and the $2m Inglis Millennium winner Prime Star. He is well weighted after the claim.
War Memorial came from last to win a recent Randwick trial and he was placed in a Listed race at Doomben in December.
Joviality was placed on the Kensington track on debut and she won a recent trial.
1 – Riccardo
4 – War Memorial
5 – Joviality
Race 3 – Prosperity Advisers Group – Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2350m
Dundee bolted in at Gosford last start and the longer trip won’t be a problem. He rises sharply in the weights but he is a progressive stayer and has a soft draw.
First Footman led all the way to win at Gosford two starts back and he has raced well at Newcastle.
Kippax overcame difficulties to win easily at Scone last start.
1 – Dundee
2 – First Footman
7 – Kippax
Race 4- Jennings Print Group Prov & CTRY Maiden Plate 1600m
Underboss has been placed in two strong races at Scone and Newcastle recently. He was place behind subsequent Listed placegetter Outburst two starts back at Scone before being placed on this track on June 27.
Exterminate will appreciate the longer trip and bigger track and he should run well.
Mexican Standoff has a place chance.
8 – Underboss
2 – Exterminate
4 – Mexican Standoff
Race 5 – Coastline Pools Class 2 Handicap 900m
Citrouille’s only two wins have been on this track and she was unlucky when placed first up here in May. She pulled hard last start at Newcastle and that is why the filly has come back from 1200 to 900.
Espressino won a recent trial in good style and Shadow Bridge can run well.
3 – Citrouille
5 – Espressino
1 – Shadow Bridge
Race 6- Hungerford Hill Wines Benchmark 64 Handicap 1600m
Controlthewitness is knocking on the door and is well placed with Louise Day’s claim. He was a close second at Gosford and he was only beaten a head at this track on May 2.
Deepwood Vale is fitter now and she finished strong when runner up at Scone last start.
Blazing Sunrise comes off a nice quiet trial.
1 – Controlthewitness
8 – Deepwood Vale
3 – Blazing Sunrise
