She’s Justified has been placed in 7 of 11 starts and she put the writing on the wall with a strong finish from second last when runner up on this track on June 12. The longer trip is ideal.

Emaleah was nosed out for second by She’s Justified last start and Mantinello is a leader with a chance.

Selections:    8 – She’s Justified   – 5- Emaleah            1- Mantinello

Australiano was an easy Bathurst winner last start.

Race 4- PFD Foods Maiden Plate 1400m

Eminencia has raced well in her only two starts.

Selections:    6- Volterra    4- Significant Rule 8- Eminencia

Race 5- OAS Technology Class 1 Handicap 1400m

Orbital Express is promising but up in class while Smart Success can improve

Selections: 2- Supremo     8- Orbital Express   10- Smart Success

Nothing Too Hard returned to form with a strong win here last start, while Commander Bell is chasing a hat trick of wins.

Selection: 2- Fantastic Baby       4- Nothing Too Hard          1- Commander Bell
