Race 1- Sydney Junction Hotel 3YO Maiden Handicap 1150m
Atherton has won his last five barrier trials over three preparations but has been disappointing on raceday. He has speed and this is his race.
Static is on debut and her trials are okay.
Destiny’s Son is trialling well.
1 – Destinys Son
Race 2- Simtrack 2YO Maiden Plate
Adversity is a very promising colt and he has blinkers on for the first time. He didn’t handle the heavy track last start, but his debut run at Newcastle was super. Barrier one and Tommy Berry ticks all the boxes.
Thermosphere was narrowly beaten at Canterbury last start and Much Much Better has a place chance.
9 – Thermosphere
5 – Much Much Better
Race 3- Hungerford Hill Metro & Prov Maiden Plate 1350m
Favra came from last when narrowly beaten at Warrick Farm last start. The longer trip is ideal with Avdulla aboard – he will be a short price but looks a good thing.
Gogol was narrowly beaten a length at Warrick Farm and Newcastle in his last two starts and he will run well.
Chanting had no luck on course proper here in December.
Race 4- New Zealand Bloodstock F&M Class 1 Handicap 1350m
Lady Tavista was impressive in an easy win on the course proper here three weeks ago. She will appreciate the longer trip and is the one to beat.
Candy Bar was held up in the straight at Gosford last start and she has a chance.
Buba had no luck last start.
2- Lady Tavista
5 – Candy Bar
3 – Buba
Race 5- Starr Facilities Services Maiden Handicap 1250m
Menagerie resumes here on the back of solid trial form. She has been placed in all four starts and she races on the speed.
Kirwan’s Lane has never been far away and resumes after two trials.
Caudan was placed at Newcastle last start and has a chance
5 – Kirwan’s Lane
7 – Caudan
Race 6- Australian Bloodstock CG&E Class 1 Handicap 1350m
Reiby’s Regent drops sharply in class after a respectable run in the Group 3 Southern Cross. He was runner up to a smart one at Wyong two starts back.
Canzonet is racing well and has a nice claim.
Monstrosity is a front runner and a last start winner.
2- Reiby’s Regent
1 – Canzonet
5 – Monstrosity
Race 7- Yarraman Park Benchmark 70 Handicap 2200m
Etheridge outstayed her rivals to win well at Warrick Farm last start. She should have a nice trail from the rails barrier and looks too good for these.
Knights Star is a solid stayer and has won at Newcastle and Scone recently.
Joes Joy is racing well and has a chance
5 – Etheridge
3- Knights Star
8- Joes Joy
Race 8- Sharp Electronics Group Class 2 Handicap 1150m
The unbeaten Mirra Vision resumes here after a trial win. She won on debut at Newcastle in September before a solid win at Warrick Farm.
Texas Forever is a recent Canterbury winner and will be on pace.
Capri Lane is unbeaten and resumes
4- Mirra Vision
1 – Texas Forever
5- Capri Lane
