Race 1 – New Zealand Bloodstock Maiden Plate 900m

Lord Olympus is a speedy three-year-old colt with very good barrier trial form. This is the first start on the back of an easy trial win at Warwick Farm on August 7. He has a nice barrier and has a two-kilogram claim.

Count De Rupee was beaten a nose on debut at Kembla after being trapped wide and shootforthestars has been trialling well.


6- Lord Olympus

5- Count De Rupee

9- Shootforthestars

Race 2- Advanced Pest Control Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2350m

Wild Sheila has been placed in her past three starts and she has been placed in two starts on this track. The mare was narrowly beaten in a stronger race at Gosford last start. She came from well back and looked the winner close to home.

Razano has been placed in her past five starts on the North Coast and she is knocking on the door.

Our Bambino is a last start winner at Kembla and he has a chance.


6- Wild Sheila

2- Razano

2- Our Bambino

Race 3 – Let’s Celebrate Brooke & Brayden’s Engagement Maiden Plate 1885m

Olympic Gaze is a promising stayer and he will appreciate the long straight and spacious track. The three-year-old was held up badly when a fast finishing second over the ‘mile’ at Gosford last start. The longer trip is ideal and he will carry the luxury weight of 52½ kilograms after the claim.

Vegareign was runner up to the above average Sky Lab at Newcastle nine days ago and he is the main threat.

No Complaints has a place chance.


11- Olympic Gaze

5- Vegareign

3- No Complaints

Race 4- Get On Scott’s 50th Birthday Maiden Handicap 1250m

Canadian Spice was three wide no cover throughout when a close fourth on this track two weeks back. The run was huge as she was last three wide early in the race. She was placed behind Wild Ruler in the Inglis Nursery at Randwick in December.

Absolute Legend was a long odds-on favourite when runner up at Gosford last start and he will be better for the run.

O’Mudgee was only beaten half a length on debut at Warwick Farm in January and he bolted in with a recent Warwick Farm trial.


4- Canadian Spice

1- Absolute Legend

3- O’Mudgee

Race 5- Girl Friday Maiden Handicap 1250m

Bondi Blue was placed in a classy race first up at Gosford a month ago. He was runner up in a strong race on the Kensington track in October. He can go forward and he has raced much better fields.

Winston Blue is on debut and he was only a length behind boom youngster Torun in a Warwick Farm trial last month.

Waafiya wasn’t far away at Canberra last tart.


3- Bondi Blue

6- Winston Blue

12- Waafiya

Race 6- Rarity Wholesaler Maiden Handicap 1400m

La Tigresa has been placed in four of seven starts and she only needs luck to win. The mare came from way back when beaten less than a length in a hot Maiden on this track on August 8. She should race closer from the good draw and the blinkers come off.

Nearly Fine flashed home when narrowly beaten at Kembla last start and he will carry 54 kilograms.

Stark was runner up on debut at Wyong and he has a place chance.

2- La Tigresa

6- Nearly Fine

1- Stark

Race 7- Minder Cloud Services F&M Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Al Snip has had eight starts for a win and six placings and two starts at Newcastle for two placings. She has a lovely draw and has had her foot on the till for some time. Forget her last run when she bolted up first and was a tearaway leader.

You Too is third up after two creditable runs and she was a close third on the Kensington track a week before Christmas.

Express Princess has won three form nine and was a Kembla winner two starts back.


4- Al Snip

11- You Too

1- Express Princess

Race 8- Macka’s Sand And Soil CG&E Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Exhibition is a last start Randwick 2YO winner on June 20. The colt has had two quiet trials since and he is pretty classy. The barrier is a negative, but he can race handy.

Super is in great form and he landed a huge plunge on this track last start.

Mo’Unga won is only start on the Gold Coast in June.


2- Exhibition

10- Super

11- Mo’Unga

Race 9- Australian Bloodstock Conditional Benchmark 68 Handicap 1250m

Zell has been runner up in both starts this prep and he is well placed here. He is a front runner and he will be much fitter third up.

Tim’s Principal’s country form is okay while Trophies Galore races well on this track.


9- Zell

2- Tim’s Principal

5- Trophies Galore
