Race 1- Yarraman Park Maiden Handicap 1500m

Gogol has his chance to break through for his first win after close placings in his two starts this prep. He has led in both starts and should lead unchallenged in this field. He was run down late on this track last start.

She Is So Savvy ran on strong when runner up at Kembla first up and she is the main threat.

Queen Snip has been placed in her past three starts.


1 – Gogol

8- She’s So Savvy

5 – Queen Snip

Race 2 – Australian Bloodstock F&M Benchmark 64 1400m

Madam Legend was impressive in winning a 1200 metre Maiden on this track on April 11. She had a tough run three-wide with no cover before drawing away in the straight. She will appreciate the longer trip and the 2 kilogram claim is a benefit.

History bolted in at Kembla last start after leading all the way and she is a big player.

Joy For Love had no luck last start and has a chance.


2 – Madam Legend

4 – History

1 – Joy For Love

Race 3 – Hungerford Hill Benchmark 64 Handicap 1885m

Kirwan’s Lane is racing well with a win and two seconds from his past three starts. He ran home strong to win over the 1600 here two starts back then was unlucky when runner up at Wyong after a slow start.

Karmazone wasn’t far away in the Provincial Qualifiers recently and last start was never on the track when beaten 1.7 lengths at Kembla.

The regally bred colt Kinloch makes his debut after an easy trial win on the Beaumont track. He led all the way in the trial and he raced away to win by 4 ½ lengths. He has drawn wide but it is a good run to the first and only turn.

Stoical is back form Melbourne where he wasn’t far away In his only start at Sandown.

Already Blessed was narrowly beaten first up.

Race 5 – Sage Painting Maiden Handicap 900m

Lady Herbert is first up and is Robert Thompson’s only mount. She was only beaten a head at Warwick Farm in November and had a nice quiet trial at Rosehill recently. She has a good barrier and will appreciate the spacious track.

Devan has his foot on the till after two recent placings and Duty has speed and may lead.


11 – Lady Herbert

1 – Devan

7 – Duty

Race 6 – New Zealand Bloodstock Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Favra was very unlucky last start at Wyong and he has good form on this track. he was badly held up two or three times at Wyong and two starts back he was strong late when winning at Newcastle. Boom apprentice Tom Sherry will claim 2 kilograms and Favra has a soft draw.

Big Bad Bruce came from a long way back when a narrow winner here last start and Power Of Attorney went well at Wyong.


8 – Favra

4 – Big Bad Bruce

14 – Power Of Attorney

Race 7 – Sharp Electronics Group Conditional Benchmark 70 Handicap 1200m

Hardspot is an unlikely starter so Trophies Galore can win again. She beat a smart field at Muswellbrook two starts back and she came from way back when second to Hardspot here last start. She won the TAB Highway on The Hunter Raceday here in November.

Ulysses, Bombasay and Maroch all have a chance.


6 – Trophies Galore

15 – Ulysses

4 – Bombasay
