Race 1 – Macka’s Sand & Soil Class 1 & Maiden Plate 1850m

Reaching broke through for her first win on this track on September 1. The mare had been placed in much better races than this in previous starts. She goes from 1500m to 1850m and she is crying out for this trip.

Street Dancer drops in class and should fill a place, while Miss Japan will appreciate the trip.


6- Reaching

9- Street Dancer

5- Miss Japan

Race 2 – GTS LawnPride Australia CG&E Maiden Handicap 1400m

Yangtze Rapids has had three starts for two narrow defeats at Warwick Fam. The colt flew home when a close second in a quality three-year-old race at Warwick Farm first up on September 2. The third placegetter won at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, he has a perfect draw and McDonald rides.

Volterra, a stablemate has been placed at Rosehill and Newcastle and he is a big threat.

Sidearm can run a place after two placings this prep.

3- Volterra

8- Sidearm

Race 3- Advanced Pest Control F&M Maiden Handicap 1400

True Faith’s first up run here recently was an eye catcher. The filly was last in a field of eleven first up at the top of the straight and she went down by 1.8 lengths. In her only other start at Warwick Farm in June she was placed.

Bargain was never on the track when placed at Hawkesbury last start and he was narrowly beaten two starts back.

Alumna was narrowly beaten on debut at Kembla recently and has speed.

Race 4 – Minder Cloud Services Hurricane Handicap 900m

Burning Crown is a flyer which won a 1200 metre race in near record time on this track on ‘Hunter’ Day. He has won 6 from 18 with 8 placings and although he hasn’t raced since June, he has been trialling well.

Rare Episode has speed to burn and he has been impressive in recent trials. He will love the short course.

Condor is also quick and he finished third in the Newcastle Newmarket in the Autumn.

Race 5- Australian Bloodstock Cameron Handicap 1500m

Special Reward was held up in the straight in the Group 2 Theo Marks at Rosehill on Saturday before going down by 1½ lengths. He won the Newcastle Newmarket in the Autumn and he won a Group 3 at Randwick in February. He can take up a good position and he has won 50% of his race starts.

Rock’s first up run recently was an eye catcher and he won this race last year.

Just Thinkin’ went well last start and has a good chance.

9- Just Thinkin’

Race 6 – Sharp Electronics Group Newcastle Gold Cup 2300m

Hush Writer won this race last year and his first up run in the Wyong Cup was a ripper. He hadn’t raced for five months prior and he will obviously be fitter. He will race on the speed and he loves a Good 4 track.

Mugatoo is an exciting stayer unbeaten this campaign. He has a fine record winning 7 form 13 and his trainer is desperate to win his hometown Cup.

The Lord Mayor was a fast finishing second in the recent Wyong Cup and the wide open spaces will be ideal.


2- Hush Writer

1- Mugatoo

9- The Lord Mayor

Race 7 – Yarraman Park Tibbie Stakes 1400m

Asiago was outstanding in winning the Mona Lisa at Wyong two weeks ago. She is unbeaten on this track and she has won two from three second up. She won the Group 3 Kembla Classic in March and she has drawn well.

All Saints Eve resumes after a lovely quiet trial. She is a quality mare and a winner on this track.

Yamazaki and Icebath are at a double figure and both are each-way chances.


2- Asiago

11- All Saints Eve

8- Yamazaki
